The Braves and Pittsburgh made some moves looking toward the future at the deadline, though neither were quite as expected or rumored.
While this season hasn’t gone quite how Pittsburgh envisioned it would, they still sit just 2 games back of the second place Cardinals in the NL Central division.
Andrew McCutchen has had a terrible year, and is not showing any real signs of life- in fact, he was banished to the bench for two straight days to try to clear his head.
Ryan Vogelsong faces a great matchup in Atlanta, and will look to lower his 3.74 ERA on the year and tally win #2 to bring him above the .500 mark.
His 1.48 WHIP isn’t great, but the Braves’ lineup doesn’t bring much to the table and if he can keep the walks down, he should have success here.
Atlanta, at 37-69, has staked firm claim on worst record in the league with their .349 winning percentage. They’ve made a decent deal for Matt Kemp to help insulate Freddie Freeman, their other decent hitter, in the lineup for next season.
It’s going to take a lot more than Kemp to make them a threat, however.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
Tyrell Jenkins owns a 4.94 ERA and 1.77 WHIP thus far in his 29.1 career MLB innings.
His 15:20 K-to-walk rate inspires little confidence that he is up to the task, but at this point in the season, the Braves have very little to lose and may want to tack on wins to fend off San Diego and Minnesota and ensure the 1st overall pick next year.
- Pittsburgh is 24-28 on the road
- the Pirates are 5-5 in their last 10 games
- Atlanta owns the worst record at 37-69
- The Braves are 16-39 at home
Free Pittsburgh Pirates vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
I don’t think Ryan Vogelsong is all that great and would usually lean towards betting against him, but Atlanta is awful.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Pirates ML
Tyrell Jenkins has 4 career starts under his belt and I think the Pirates should be able to provide enough run support for Vogelsong to get the W.
