In game three of this three game series, Los Angeles will be throwing out lefty Tyler Skaggs to oppose the masterful Corey Kluber. Cleveland has opened up as (-149) money line favorites while there has been small line movement in both directions at different sports books.
Kluber was tagged with the loss on opening day where he went eight innings giving up two runs on six hits while striking out eight. The ace was his usual self, it was just unfortunate that he got the loss.
The 31 year old ace has been one of the best pitchers in the league for a while now posting a career ERA of 3.12 and a sparkling 2.93 FIP. He is a strikeout artist (9.90 K/9) while he has great command (2.00 BB/9) and doesn’t give up many home runs (0.85 HR/9).
Cleveland’s lineup has had their way against Skaggs slashing .382/.424/.600 in 55 at-bats. They have smacked three home runs and 14 RBI, while also walking four times and striking out nine times.
Their lineup hasn’t been too hot to start the season though slashing .191/.284/.382 in their first four games while they have only drove in 14 RBI.
Los Angeles Angels
It was a promising start to the season for Skaggs who gave up only three hits in 6.1 innings while striking out five batter and walking no one. We’ve been waiting a while for the former first round pick to break out, but injuries have plagued his career thus far.
He owns a career ERA of 4.50 and FIP of 4.21. The strikeouts come every now and then (7.66 K/9) while he does alright limiting the free bases (3.05 BB/9) and home runs (1.12 HR/9). Health and not having a dominant pitch has stymied his growth, but if he can stay healthy maybe we will see progression after all these years.
The Angel’s lineup has struggled mightily against Kluber slashing .168/.234/.336 in 125 at-bats, while they’ve only managed to get 11 walks compared to the 33 strikeouts.
Their lineup is slashing .265/.296/.418 in their last five games while also hitting 19 extra base hits (13 of which are doubles), but only have 21 RBI.
