The A’s haven’t listed starters for the week yet, as I write on Monday morning, but I believe this should be Brett Anderson’s turn in the rotation.
Bob Melvin seems to have settled on Anderson, Mike Fiers, Homer Bailey, Tanner Roark, and Chris Bassitt for now. Daniel Mengden is available for spot starts.
That’s for now. Sean Manaea was the team’s ace when he went down almost a year ago now. He’s supposed to make his season debut in the next two weeks and the A’s will see how he responds.
Frankie Montas is serving out that 80-game suspension and won’t be eligible for the postseason.
What makes the A’s so dangerous, in my mind, is how they defend. That infield with Chapman, Semien, Profar, and Olson is the best in the game. With some steady starting pitching, the A’s can go far.
The Cubs can go far if Yu Darvish pitches like he did on Sunday (eight strikeouts and no walks in five innings).
All but eight of Chicago’s games have been started by either Darvish, Jon Lester, Kyle Hendricks, Jose Quintana, or Cole Hamels. The five have remained remarkably healthy. All but Hamels are either beyond or just about at 120 innings with 60 games to go.
It should be Kyle Hendricks on Monday and then back to Jon Lester for this game. He’s allowing more than 10 hits per nine for the first time since he was a rookie with Boston in 2006. That hasn’t stopped him from getting outs. He’s still got an ERA nearly 20 percent better than league average.
