Manaea took the loss against the Los Angeles Dodgers as he could only go five innings while giving up two earned off of seven hits to go along with five strikeouts and one walk. Both his earned runs came off of solo home runs.
The lefty now owns a sparkling 1.74 ERA this year, but his FIP sits at 3.82 meaning his defense has been making him look good. Even so, Manaea has been very efficient with his command owning a 2:16 BB:K ratio. He has been very fortunate with a .208 BABIP, so the hit rate will increase along with his ERA, but it shouldn’t be anything too drastic for this stud.
Oakland’s lineup has done an okay job hitting the ball in the last week slashing .251/.328/.429 to go along with 14 extra-base hits and 27 RBI. They have done a good job taking walks with 49, but they have also racked up 123 strikeouts.
Hernandez got his second win of the season against the Kansas City Royals in his third start of the season. He made it 5.2 innings giving up three earned off of six hits while striking out three and walking one. This now brings his BB:K ratio to 8:8 on the season.
He is no longer the “King Felix” that we got used too and he hasn’t been that for a couple years now. His velocity is down and has been struggling to strand base runners which has contributed to his high 6.60 ERA and 7.05 FIP. All of this has been happening in spite of having a lucky .217 BABIP.
Seattle’s lineup has started to heat up slashing .242/.332/.424 to go along with 17 extra-base hits and 28 RBI in the last week. They have accumulated the second least amount of walks with 36, but they also don’t strikeout owning the least amount of strikeouts with 82.

Free Oakland Athletics vs. Seattle Mariners MLB Prediction: Athletics holds off Seattle
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER the Total
Oakland’s lineup strikeouts a lot, but Hernandez hasn’t been throwing his best stuff with a career-low 4.80 K/9, so it could be an early day for him if Oakland starts connecting on them. Manaea is due to give up a couple of runs against this hot Seattle lineup but I still like him in this spot. However it worries me that Vegas opened them up as slight dogs. Roll with the total going over the number
