San Francisco Giants
After some delay, San Francisco finally gave the nod to Samardzija who will be heading off the DL to make his first start of the season. He suffered a pectoral injury, so it will be interesting to see how his mechanics fare in this outing.
He’ll look to follow up on his underrated 2017 campaign where he posted an 8.88 K/9 compared to just a 1.39 BB/9, and even though he owned a 4.42 ERA, his FIP sat at a solid 3.61.
San Francisco’s lineup has continued their uneventful start by slashing .228/.302/.337 in the last week while hitting just 12 extra-base hits and 15 RBI. They have gone a sub-par 2-4 in that span.
Los Angeles Angels
Heaney took the no-decision in his first start of the season against the Kansas City Royals as he went five innings giving up three earned off of seven hits while striking out seven and only walking one. He needed 85 pitches to get him through the five innings.
It was a mixed review for Heaney as even though he gave up three earned and seven hits, his command was on point as he threw 54 out of 85 pitches for strikes, and of course only gave up one walk and seven strikeouts. After shaking off the rust, look for an improvement upon his last outing.
After a scorching hot start, Los Angels’ lineup has cooled off significantly slashing .263/.313/.397 while hitting 11 extra-base hits and 18 RBI in that. They have managed to go 3-2 in that span.

4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Angels -134
Both pitchers are pretty much fresh off the DL, except Heaney has gotten at least one start under his belt. Although Samardzija was solid last year, I need to wait and see how this pectoral injury plays out. Heaney gave up some runs, but I like the control the lefty was exhibiting.
Even though Los Angeles’ lineup has come back down to Earth, I expect them to welcome Samardzija back to the big leagues with some nice run support for Heaney to work with.
