Martin Perez, the tricky lefty, has it going on early in the season. He’s made three starts and hasn’t given up more than three runs in any of them. He’s also only given up one in his last two outings combined.
But Perez never goes very deep in these games. He went six innings in his first start and then 10.1 in those last two combined.
That’s still really effective though. The notion that a starting pitcher has to go seven innings is disappearing and Perez is the latest of these starters that will give his team 85-90 pitches and usually four, five, six good innings to start the game.
The problem is the Rangers’ bullpen that still has three, four or five innings to get. It’s been a disaster for Sam Dyson and others out there in 2017.
The Athletics were swept in Houston after having dropped the finale against Kansas City in the series before. Coming into Tuesday, the losing streak is at four.
But Khris Davis is raking again, six homers through 13 games, unfortunately, Oakland’s 46 runs are just 25th in the major’s to this point.
Jesse Hahn has two quality starts to begin his 2017 though. Standing 6’4″ out of of VA Tech, Hahn has a 3.82 career ERA in three seasons and is one of those guys that does solid work in an anonymous Athletics rotation.
He has with work cut out going against a Rangers offense, even though it’s still without Adrian Beltre.

Free Texas Rangers vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction: scoring comes late.
I like both starting pitchers to have decent days, Hahn in general and Perez because he can manage this Oakland offense. I do not trust the ‘pens, however.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: First 5 innings under 4.5
It’s worth searching, and even waiting for a 5.0. That would become a bigger play.
