Trevor Bauer (CLE) vs BAL
Baltimore has been going through a terrible offensive slump over the past week, batting .197 with a paltry .297 slugging percentage. Bauer has not been his renaissance-like self these past two starts but facing the struggling O’s could see him bounce back with superb numbers.
Adam Conley (MIA) vs NYM
The southpaw has been racking up strikeouts by the handful these past two months, having averaged 9.48 Ks per nine inning between June and July . He will aim to do the same against a Mets offense that hits .244 against lefties.
Tanner Roark ($8,700) vs SDP
Roark has had the best season of his career so far in 2016, but a slugging Padres offense could put a dent into that previous statement. Matt Kemp has hit four home runs in the past week while Ryan Schimpf and Yangervis Solarte are batting over .310 in the same span.
Marco Estrada ($8,400) vs SEA
Estrada is returning from the 15-day disabled list to face a Mariners offense that has tailed off a bit this past week. But several hitters on the M’s have the righties’ number on speed dial. Nelson Cruz is 4-for-5 with a home run lifetime while Kyle Seager has seen success against him as well.
