It was a short outing for Chatwood who was rocked from the get-go against the San Francisco Giants, but fortunately Chicago’s bats showed up and help them win 8-3. Chatwood could only go 2.2 innings giving up six hits and three earned runs while he struck out three and walked five.
This was Chatwood’s second start in a row where he couldn’t make it to three innings, which is stemming from the fact that his lack of control has burdened him with a 8.38 BB/9. He leads the NL in walks with 45. He currently owns a 4.10 ERA and 4.75 FIP, and it could be way worse if he was giving up home runs (0.37 HR/9), but he seems to have that under control.
Chicago continues to play winning baseball winning four of their last six contests. During that time their lineup has been hot as they are slashing .301/.389/.493 to go with 22 extra-base hits and 32 RBI.
New York Mets
Wheeler put in a so-so performance in his last start as he got the no-decision against the Milwaukee Brewers. He went six innings giving up six hits, four earned runs, and one home run while he struck out six and walked two. His lone home-run was a three-run shot in the fourth to Jesus Aguilar.
He has done well with the strikeouts (9.54 K/9) and walks (3.42 BB/9), while he has given up home run(s) in every other outing he has started. His unlucky .331 BABIP has contributed to his low LOB% of 66% and his high 5.40 ERA, but his 4.02 FIP tells a more accurate story.
New York has been playing sub-par baseball in the last week winning three of their eight contests. During that time their lineup has actually gotten hot where they are slashing .287/.359/.474 to go with 30 extra-base hits and 42 RBI.

Free Chicago Cubs vs. New York Mets MLB Prediction: Chicago outlasts New York
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Cubs -126
With the current state of Chatwood, it is hard to trust him on the road, but the road has been a blessing for Chatwood as he owns 2.53 ERA and a slash line of .203/.380/.296. Wheeler has been dreadful at home with a 7.36 ERA to go with a slash line of .320/.381/.521. I’ll be rolling with the road faves as I expect Chicago’s lineup to hit their way to victory
