Los Angeles Angels
Skaggs put in his worst start of the year as he took his seventh loss of the year in a shellacking to the Tampa Bay Rays 6-10.
He went 3.2 innings giving up eight hits, 10 earned runs, and one home run while he struck out three and walked three.
In 113.1 innings of work, Los Angeles’ ace owns a solid strikeout (9.37 K/9) to walk rate (2.70 BB/9), while he has also been solid at limiting the long ball (0.71 HR/9) and stranding base runners (75.0% LOB%).
The end-result is a solid 3.34 ERA and an even better 3.13 FIP.
Los Angeles continues to play losing baseball only winning two of their last six contests in the past week.
During that span their lineup is slashing .258/.325/.440 to go with 22 extra-base hits and 33 RBI.
Bieber was able to put in a quality start his last outing but walked away with a no-decision as Cleveland would go on to lose to the Minnesota Twins 4-5.
He went 6.1 innings giving up six hits and three earned runs while he struck out seven and walked two.
In 51.1 innings of work this season, Bieber owns a solid strikeout (8.94 K/9) to walk rate (1.75 BB/9), while he has done a decent job containing the long ball (1.05 HR/9), but has struggled stranding base runners (69.1% LOB%).
The end-result is a high 4.73 ERA, but he owns a more representable 3.40 FIP considering he owns a very unlucky .373 BABIP.
Cleveland has played mediocre baseball in the past week as they won three of their last six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .269/.342/.443 to go with 20 extra-base hits and 23 RBI.

Free Los Angeles Angels vs. Cleveland Indians MLB Prediction: Cleveland edges out Los Angeles at home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Angels +1.5
Skaggs has the stuff to bounce back after a dud performance due to his ability to strike batters out and limit the walks.
Bieber is coming off of a quality performance, so he should be able to contain Los Angeles’ lineup for the most part.
Cleveland may get the win, but I expect Los Angeles to keep this outing close.
