Tampa Bay Rays
Faria was able to pick up his third win of the season against the Toronto Blue Jays in which he went 5.1 innings giving up one earned run and three hits while striking out four and walking one. It was his fifth of seven starts in which he gave up one run or fewer.
Tampa Bay has been restricting Faria, he has only went over a pitch count of 83 pitches once this year where he threw 112 pitches in eight innings of work against the Detroit Tigers. He’ll look to post his third quality start of the season if his coaches permit it.
Tampa Bay has won just two of the last five contests in the last week. Their lineup is slashing .236/.326/.331 with just nine extra-base hits and 13 RBI in that span.
Gausman may have pitched the best game of his career in his last start against the Oakland Athletics, but unfortunately they’d go on to lose 0-2 in extra innings. Gausman pitched a scoreless complete game where he gave up two hits while striking out six and walking two. He’s put in four quality starts in his last five outings.
His strikeout rate (7.42 K/9) compared to his walk rate (2.47 BB/9) has been acceptable, but his 1.65 HR/9 has been a sore spot for him. His 87.9% LOB% and 3.30 ERA should take a hit once his lucky .244 BABIP regresses. His FIP is currently sitting at 4.79.
Baltimore continues their losing ways as they have won just one out of six contests in the last week. In that span their lineup is slashing .237/.293/.355 to go with 13 extra-base hits and 20 RBI.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction: Baltimore squeak past Tampa Bay
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Orioles -129 & Orioles -1.5
Tampa Bay has gone 3-0 against Baltimore in Faria’s last three starts against them, but they have provided him with 19 total runs in those outings. However, Baltimore was able to take him out early earlier this year as they pegged him for four runs, I expect them to get to him again, while Gausman holds his own against a struggling Tampa Bay lineup.
