The Oakland Athletics rotation continues to be shifted around following a case of food poisoning at the start of the season.
They’ll send Rich Hill to the rubber here in game 2 after dropping 3 of 4 to start the season. Seattle, who took 2 of 3 against the Rangers, will go with newly acquired Nathan Karns.
Oakland really didn’t have much of an expectation this year and they started off how many thought they would. Oakland is 1-3 heading into the start of this weekend series with the M’s and will look to take the middle game of this series with Rich Hill on the mound.
Hill was knocked around in his opening start as he finished just 2.2 innings as he allowed 3 hits on 4 runs. However, he was on the end of some unfortunate defense as holy 2 of those were earned.
Rich Hill, who has spent a majority of the time as a reliever in the MLB, made 4 starts with Boston last year and he was absolutely stellar. Hill allowed just 14 hits in 29.0 innings of work. His ERA through those 4 starts sat at 1.55.
Hill has not faced Seattle since 2014.
Seattle retooled their entire team this past offseason and things have started off on the right foot for them.
After putting up just 2 runs in their season opener and not being able to bail out an error that costed Felix Hernandez the game, the M’s came back in a big way as they put up a 10 spot, followed by a 9 spot.
The offense is much deeper this season as they have more protection around Nelson Cruz and Robinson Cano.
Seattle is going with Nathan Karns, a new face in a new place. Karns was with Tampa Bay last year and appeared in 27 games (26 starts). Karns finished the season with a 7-5 record and an ERA of 3.67. Command and location is the most important for him as he simply does not have anything overpowering.

Free Oakland A’s vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction:
Give the pitching edge here to the Mariners, but just by a little.
Rich Hill earned himself a contract with his strong finish last year when he switched to a starter role. He’s got the stuff, but command is his most important key as well.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Line Not Yet Released
This game has two pitchers who have good stuff, but locating their breaking pitches is going to be a must here. Look for a rather high scoring game, as both starters are 5 and fly.
