Tampa Bay Rays
Snell continues to dominate at the mound, this time he put in another quality start while picking up his eighth win of the season against the Seattle Mariners. He went six innings giving up seven hits and one earned run while only striking out one and walking two.
The lefty is finally putting it all together and is having a break-out season. His problem has always been his command owning a 4.04 BB/9, but this year he has that down to 2.73 BB/9 to go with a 9.73 K/9 and 85.0% LOB%. The end result is a solid 2.30 ERA and 3.31 FIP, but be weary he’s been a tad lucky with a .234 BABIP.
Tampa Bay has been playing mediocre baseball in the last week winning three of their seven contests. During that span their lineup is slashing .262/.312/.424 to go with 21 extra-base hits and 29 RBI.
New York Yankees
Loaisiga will be making his first start of his career against Tampa Bay. There will be some pressure, but he’ll have a top-five bull pen backing him up.
In six starts in the minors, Loaisiga has done well posting an 11.52 K/9, 1.08 BB/9, 1.44 HR/9, 75.8% LOB% and a 4.32 ERA and 3.29 FIP. Of course this will be his first major league start against a mediocre Tampa Bay lineup.
New York continues to play winning baseball as they’ve won four of their five contests in the past week. During that time their lineup is only slashing .193/.261/.373 to go with 12 extra-base hits and 14 RBI.

Free Tampa Bay Rays vs. New York Yankees MLB Prediction: New York handles Tampa Bay at home
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Yankees -1.5 & OVER 8.5 Runs
Tampa Bay hits better on the road, while New York hits better at home and during night games. Snell has been awesome, but that 2:1 strikeout-to-walk ratio isn’t a good sign going on the road facing a powerhouse lineup. Loaisiga may give up some runs, but I expect Snell to give up more, while the total creeps over the threshold.
