Two teams who have endured very disappointing first halves will play in their 2nd last game prior to the break, as the Phillies and Rockies get set for battle.
The two teams will be sellers at the deadline, which means scouts could be in attendance for this entire season.
The Phillies started this season off very promising.
They were right there in the thick of things in the AL East, keeping stride with the Mets and Nationals. Sitting within striking, the Phillies faded, quickly, and are now 7 games under the .500 mark.
To make matters worse, they sit 11.0 games off the pace in the AL East.
They’ll send out Jerad Eickhoff here on Saturday. Eickoff is just 6-9 this season, but has won 4 of his last 5 decisions.
He leads the team in WHIP (1.23) and in ERA (3.30).
The Colorado Rockies have just never picked up any steam.
Their pitching has let them down significantly inside Coors Field, which has led them to a 39-46 record, good enough for 14.0 games back in the NL West.
There has been a lot of speculation about who will be available from this Rockies team at the deadline. The most popular name being thrown around is Carlos Gonzalez.
The OF is hitting .318 with 18 homeruns and 51 RBI.
Colorado will send out Tyler Anderson in this one. Anderson is 0-3 on the year and has lost his last 2 outings.
Anderson has not allowed more than 3 runs in a start, but has failed to get into the 7th inning in any of his 5 starts this season.

Free Philadelphia Phillies vs. Colorado Rockies MLB Prediction:
This has the making of an offensive game.
Colorado and Coors Field games have typically been high scoring for the most part. Given the struggles of Eickoff here, this is a case where the Rockies should have a lot of scoring opportunities.
