In most pundits estimation the Rangers won the trade deadline by acquiring two bats they can plug right into their lineup – catcher Jonathan Lucroy and OF/DH Carlos Beltran.
Now they just have to hope that they can keep their starters healthy enough. Baltimore did not do nearly enough to inspire their fans but they are still in the thick of the AL East race (leading by a half game as this is being written)
Texas made the moves but they have also been playing good ball. After a four game home sweep of Kansas City they found themselves six games up heading into Monday night’s action.
The additions are significant. They are currently eighth in scoring but relying on some pretty inexperienced and unpredictable hitters.
Plus we all remember what a monster Beltran has been in the playoffs.
Yu Darvish is an elite pitcher but the Rangers have been just 2-4 in his six starts. He is wracking up the strikeouts and is hard to hit but he has still not pitched as much as seven innings in a ballgame yet.
His numbers on the road are not as good as at home and the Orioles have worn out more than a few pitchers this season.
Even though the Rangers loaded up the offense a key bullpen arm might have been nice.
The Orioles lost two of three in Toronto over the weekend but still held a scant lead over the Jays in the AL East.
On offense they are dangerous and were not really looking to improve but the pitching needed more than a Wade Miley band-aid. It was a big series against Toronto and now they return home.
The stakes are just as big and it won’t be easy with the surging Rangers coming to town.
Dylan Bundy is a top prospect of the O’s. He has pitched mostly in relief this season but this will be his fourth start in a row.
Thus far the results have been mediocre. He has yet to complete six inning and in two of his three starts he has given up multiple homers.
They really need him to become consistent down the stretch since they do not really have anywhere else to turn. Fortunately, when he doesn’t go deep he can turn it over to a dynamite bullpen.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Baltimore Orioles MLB Prediction:
Assuming the Rangers are not too busy getting to know each other to play baseball they are a strong bet on Tuesday with Darvish on the mound. The Market might be a little tired of backing him and losing which is why you get great value.
The O’s seem like they should fade into irrelevance any day now and this one might be a letdown spot after seeing their competition reinforce themselves at the deadline. Plus Bundy is no sure thing.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Texas -111
Other than being on the road there is no reason to think the Rangers can’t continue to roll. Huge advantage on the hill with Yu and they can be just fine even if their new acquisitions need a little adjustment period.
