The Phillies got Thursday off and will play their final three games at Tropicana Field against the already playoff-bound Tampa Bay Rays.
Philadelphia enters the series a game under .500 and just barely on the outside, looking in on the National League playoff picture.
It will have its ace and team WAR leader, Zack Wheeler, on the mound for Saturday’s game two.
He’s really the co-ace with Aaron Nola. Wheeler has the ERA advantage (169 ERA+) despite giving up two more hits per nine innings than Nola and striking out about half as many batters.
Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays are a win away from clinching the top overall seed in the American League playoffs and have charged Charlie Morton with the task of getting that win on Friday.
They have not announced a starter for this game, as it’s possible there will be nothing on the line for the home team and slight favorite.
It would seem disrespectful to even ask whether or not they are true World Series contenders.
Tampa Bay’s numbers aren’t eye-popping, however. It’s team OPS+ is just 109 and staff’s ERA+ is 117. Both are better than good, of course, but neither is league-best.
The starting rotation goes five deep, even with Yonny Chirinos’ injury. Then there’s the closer, Nick Anderson, who has only thrown 15.1 innings this season, going into Friday, but has just silly numbers — and ERA+ over 700 and a WHIP under 0.50.
