Two teams skidding right now meet on Monday as the Texas Rangers and Oakland Athletics battle it out.
The Texas Rangers were swept away in Seattle and may do some retooling of the bullpen as a result.
The Rangers find themselves in the bottom of the AL West and closer Sam Dyson has been a huge reason why they are where they are.
Dyson blew yet another save on Sunday, with the ball not even leaving the infield. It’s been a disaster for him this season and it leaves
the door open for a change real soon.
Starting pitcher wise, AJ Griffin gets the ball. He was blasted in his first start which came against Oakland, but did rebound some in his
next start against the Angels.
The Athletics are in the same boat right now.
They’ve dropped 3 straight as they fell in the series finale to Kansas City, followed up with a pair of losses to Houston.
Jharel Cotton will get the ball here, looking to grab a repeat of his April 10th start.
Cotton went 7.0 shutout innings in a 2-0 win over the Royals.
The rookie has a lot of potential, as he as put away stuff and has shown the ability to keep the ball down.
