Tampa Bay Rays
The Rays won’t win the AL East as they trail the Yankees by nine games. The good news is that they led the AL Wild Card but they’re 1.5 games in front of Oakland who is looking to catch them and Cleveland.
Tampa Bay has relied on some great pitching. The team ranks third in all of baseball in runs allowed (578).
Guys like Charlie Morton (3.11 ERA), Ryan Yarbrough (3.47 ERA), and Yonny Chirinos (3.62 ERA). Their rotation will be bolstered by the return of Tyler Glasnow who has a 2.15 ERA in nine starts.
It’s unclear who the Rays will use for Wednesday’s start at this point. It’s possible that they go with a bullpen game.
If that’s the case it won’t be a bad thing as Tampa Bay has plenty of quality arms.
The Texas Rangers are 72-73 and will miss the postseason. Injuries to Hunter Pence and Joey Gallo have certainly hurt their chances. Gallo had 22 homers in 70 games, and Pence had 18 in 83 games.
The problem with the Rangers is their pitching. The team has allowed 756 runs this season which ranks as the sixth most in the AL. There have been a few pitchers who have struggled this season.
Ariel Jurado (5.40 ERA), Jesse Chavez (4.85 ERA), and Adrian Sampson (5.80 ERA) have not gotten the job done.
On the flip side of things, Lance Lynn (3.81 ERA), and Mike Minor (3.08 ERA) have.
On the mound for the Rangers is Ariel Jurado. Jurado is 7-10 with a 5.40 ERA this season.
The problem for Jurado is that he has allowed the opposition to hit .296.

Even without knowing who the Rays will go with it’s easy to lean with them. Jurado allows too much traffic on the base-paths and that will spell trouble in this one. Take the Rays at a solid price.
