Fister put in a quality start in his last outing, but unfortunately was tagged with his fifth loss of the season against the Seattle Mariners in a 1-2 loss. He went six innings giving up six hits and two earned runs while striking out two and walking one.
This is now the fifth time in his last six starts that the veteran has gone six-plus innings and has been efficient with his pitch count as his highest pitch-count during that span was 105 pitchers. He’s done well with the walks (2.78 BB/9), but his inability to strike batters out (6.05 K/9) and his high 19.6% HR/FB ratio has contributed to his 4.09 ERA and 5.16 FIP.
Texas has been playing mediocre baseball in the last week as they have won three of their seven contests. During that time their lineup is slashing .262/.356/.416 to go with 24 extra-base hits and 22 RBI.
Los Angeles Angels
Skaggs was knocked around in his last outing as he was tagged with his fourth loss of the season against the Detroit Tigers. He went five innings giving up six hits and five earned runs while he struck out five and walked three.
Despite the poor outing, Skaggs still owns a solid strikeout (9.60 K/9) to walk (2.85 BB/9) rate and an okay home run rate (1.20 HR/9). He has an impressive 81.4% LOB%, while his .311 BABIP is right around where it should be. He’ll look to bounce-back and improve his 3.60 ERA and 3.83 FIP against a bleak Texas lineup.
Los Angeles has been playing mediocre baseball in the last week as they have won three of their seven contests. During that time their lineup is slashing .261/.340/.454 to go with 24 extra-base hits and 32 RBI.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Los Angeles Angels MLB Prediction: Los Angeles edges out Texas
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Rangers +1.5 & UNDER 8.5 Runs
It is hard to give an edge to either lineup, Los Angeles hits better on the road while Texas hits better at home. Skaggs owns a 4.44 ERA as compared to a 2.94 ERA on the road, but he has dominated lefties (.156/.182/.281) as Texas’ most impactful players are lefties. Fister owns a 2.12 ERA on the road as compared to a 6.39 ERA at home. I expect Texas to keep this outing close, while both these pitchers keep this outing low-scoring.
