Oakland is 12 games under .500. and 17-35 on the road this year. Khris Davis was held out of last night’s game with a hamstring injury, and could be held out of today’s game as well.
Basically playing for pride at this point in the season, Oakland will start Jharel Cotton tonight against the Angels.
Cotton (5-8, 5.49 ERA) has been called up from the minors several times this season. He hopes to finish the year strong in order to earn a long term roster spot.
If he wants that to happen, he need to pitch better against the Angels. In two starts against the Angels this season, Cotton is 0-2 with an 11.57 ERA. The Angels bats are averaging .381 against Cotton this year.
Los Angeles Angels
Los Angeles is still a dark horse to get a wild card spot in the AL.
Currently sitting two games under .500, every game counts. The Angels are 6-4 over their last 10, and have won two games in a row against the Phillies.
Looking to keep momentum going, the Angels bats need to stay hot against the lowly Athletics.
Troy Scribner will make his first start of the season for the Angels. Scribner has appeared in two save opportunities for Los Angeles, facing the Phillies and Blue Jays. He is 1-0 with a 6.00 ERA on the year.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction:
With an inexperienced pitcher in Troy Scribner for the Angels and an erratic Jharel Cotton starting for Oakland, this game is a coin toss. Take the Angels at home to get the win in the later part of the game.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
Scribner’s body of work in the majors is too limited to have a full grasp of his ability. Cotton has proven his worth in the league this season with an ERA close to six. Take the over in this game.
