Kendall Graveman will return from a short stint on the Disabled List to make the start on Thursday against the Halos.
It’s just a five-day difference between the old Disabled List and the new one, but it sure feels like more than that. Guys are coming and going off of the DL like it’s a Tokyo subway stop.
Graveman had made three starts prior to his injury and posted some of the nicest, clean numbers you’ll come across. The right-hander is 2-0 with a 2.00 ERA and a 1.00 WHIP in 21 innings.
I really like this guy, one for his command, two his movement with the fastball, and three his ability to get outs in all sorts of ways.
Graveman can get you seven or eight strikeouts (he was averaging nearly one an innings before throwing five innings without a K in his last start). He can also get fly balls (14 in his last start) and ground balls (13 in the start before that).
His ability to control, command and pitch to weaknesses will make him a consistent starter in this league for a long time that any team will cherish.
Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim
Kind of like Ricky Nolasco.
The MLB veteran has bounced around in his career but has gotten outs and ate innings everywhere he goes.
He relies a bit more on the strikeout than Graveman (and gets more) and doesn’t have quite the same command, but his stuff plays just as well in any situation.
He has given up well more than a hit per inning so far this season, which I don’t expect to continue.
Given the exceptional control he’s displayed so far in April, Nolasco could be poised for some better things coming here.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction: both teams have equal chance to win.
Los Angeles is at home but I give the slight edge to Oakland otherwise. The cumulative effect is that this one is a coin flip and the +110 price with Oakland is an angle. Or…
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Under 8.0 (-110)
Nolasco’s BABIP against should come down and Graveman is steady as always. I like the under.
