Tampa Bay Rays ML
Tampa Bay hasn’t been playing all that well so far this year, but I still believe they will be in contention for a playoff spot at the end of the year.
Joe Maddon’s teams always seem to be there at the end of the season.
Though they haven’t played particularly well so far this year, the Rays have absolutely been crushing left-handed pitching. How good have the Rays been against lefties?
Tampa Bay is 22-5 in their last 27 games against a left-handed starter. Tampa is also 4-0 in their last 4 games against a team with a losing record.
Chris Sale is a good lefty, but he hasn’t been in good form of late. Sale gave up 8 earned runs in just a little more than 4 innings two starts ago.
He bounced back to only give up 2 runs in his last outing, but he still wasn’t particularly sharp.
Jeremy Hellickson is an underrated starter for the Rays. Hellickson might not have the best stuff in the league, but he is one of those guys who gives you a quality start almost every time he goes to the mound.
Hellickson is has only allowed 2 runs in his last 14 innings pitched.
Tampa is too good of a value to pass up here. Take Tampa Bay.
Good Luck, Razor Ray.
