Monday, July 22:

Ivan Nova at TEX: Nova has been red hot since April, putting up a 2.29 ERA and .217 BAA over his last six appearances. Meanwhile, the Rangers offense has slowed down, ranking 17th in the Majors in July.

Tom Gorzelanny vs. SD: Gorzelanny has had a stellar season out of the bullpen and is now flourishing as a starter, owning a 0.56 ERA over 16 IP since moving to the rotation. The Padres offense is as bad as ever, ranking 25th in the Majors in the month of July.

Bronson Arroyo at SF: Arroyo comes into the game with a 2.37 ERA, .149 BAA, and 12 K/3 BB over his last three starts (19 IP). He’s done well against the Giants his entire career, owning a 3.00 ERA over 78 lifetime innings against San Francisco. The Giants offense has been brutal, ranking 26th in the league in runs scored in July.

Tuesday, July 23:

Carlos Torres vs. ATL: Torres has been brilliant this season, putting up a 0.79 ERA and 0.88 WHIP in 22.2 IP since coming up to the Mets. He’s replacing Shaun Marcum as the Mets’ fifth starter and looked good against Pittsburgh in his first start, allowing just one run over five innings, striking out five and walking none. In his career, Torres has a 0.00 ERA, eight strikeouts, three hits allowed, and one walk allowed against the Braves.

Phil Hughes at TEX: Hughes has settled down, owning a 3.44 ERA and 15 K/3 BB over his last three starts. In his career, Hughes is 2-2 with a 2.08 ERA and 20 K/5 BB over 26 innings against the Rangers. He’ll face off against Alexi Ogando who has a career 10.03 ERA over 11.2 innings against the Yanks.

Hector Santiago vs. DET: It’s usually not a good bet to start anyone against the second-best offense in the league but Santiago has a 2.29 ERA and 21 K/5 BB over his last three starts and has a career 1.64 ERA in 11 IP against the Tigers.

Wednesday, July 24:

Felix Doubront vs. TB: Doubront has a 1.80 ERA and 16 K/7 BB over his last three starts. In his career, Doubront owns a 3.05 ERA and 37 K in 38.1 IP against the Rays.

Tim Hudson at NYM: Hudson is 3-0 with a 3.38 ERA and 13 K over his last three starts. He’s seen plenty of the Mets, owning a 3.52 ERA over 186.2 IP. He’ll face off against Jeremy Hefner who has a 6.19 ERA over his last three starts and a 5.84 career ERA against the Braves.

John Lannan at STL: Lannan has a 2.14 ERA over his last three starts and a career 2.53 ERA over 46.1 IP against the Cardinals.

Thursday, July 25:

Zack Wheeler vs. ATL: It hasn’t been pretty but Wheeler is 2-0 with a 2.16 ERA and 13 K/8 BB in his last three starts. Facing the Braves in his Major League debut earlier this season, Wheeler held Atlanta scoreless through six innings.

Kyle Kendrick at STL: Although he’s struggled in his last couple starts, Kendrick owns the Cardinals. In seven career starts against St. Louis, Kendrick is 5-1 with a 2.72 ERA over 53 IP. He’ll face off against Lance Lynn who has a 6.61 ERA over his last three starts.

Miguel Gonzalez at KC: Gonzalez is 2-0 with a 1.40 ERA over his last three starts and allowed just one run over eight innings in his last start against the Royals. The Royals rank 21st in offense this month.

Friday, July 26:

Chris Archer at NYY: Archer has a ridiculous 0.41 ERA over his last three starts (22 IP) and allowed just one run over six innings to the Yanks in his last start. He’ll face off against a struggling CC Sabathia who has a 6.50 ERA over his last three starts.

Ryan Dempster at BAL: Dempster has been lackluster but he’s owned the Orioles, owning a 1.73 ERA and 17 K over 26 career innings against Baltimore.

Chris Tillman vs. BOS: Facing Dempster will be Tillman who has done equally as well against Boston, owning a career 2.48 ERA and 25 K in 36.1 IP against the Sox.

Corey Kluber vs. TEX: Kluber has a 0.95 ERA and 25 K over his last three starts (19 IP) and allowed just one run over eight innings against the Rangers earlier this year. He’ll face off against Martin Perez who has a 5.50 ERA over his last three outings.

Tyler Chatwood vs. MIL: Chatwood has a 1.74 ERA over his last three starts (20.2 IP) and allowed just one run over six innings against Milwaukee earlier this season. The Brewers ranked 20th in runs this month.

Saturday, July 27:

Dillon Gee at WAS: Gee has a 3.10 ERA over his last three starts (20.1 IP) and has always owned the Nats. In nine career starts, Gee is 6-1 with a 2.57 ERA and 46 K over 56 IP against Washington. He’ll face Dan Haren who’s just terrible, owning a 5.48 ERA on the season.

Wade Davis at CHW: Davis has had a rough time this season, owning a 5.89 ERA but has always done well against the White Sox. In six career starts, Davis is 3-1 with a 1.91 ERA and 30 K over 42.1 IP against Chicago.

Samuel Deduno at SEA: Deduno has dominated the Mariners in his young career, allowing just two runs and striking out 11 over 13 IP against Seattle.

Ivan Nova vs. TB: Nova has done a great job over his last three starts, putting up a 2.28 ERA and striking out 24 through 23.2 IP. He has the Rays’ number, going 6-2 in nine games against Tampa and owning a 3.10 ERA and 48 K over 58 career innings.

Sunday, July 28:

Alexi Ogando at CLE: Ogando has a 2.60 ERA over his last three starts and has dominated the Indians in his young career, going 3-0 with a 0.84 ERA and 16 K over 21.1 IP against Cleveland.

Hector Santiago vs. KC: Just as Santiago makes a good pick against Detroit, he makes an even better pick against Kansas City. Santiago owns a 0.47 ERA with 18 K over 19.1 career innings against the Royals.
