Joe Ross will be making his first start of the season on Wednesday against the Atlanta Braves, this after having two appearances in AAA to start the season.
He comes off of last season in which he pitched effectively in limited time.
Ross pitched 105 innings in 2016 with a 3.43 ERA and a matching 3.49 FIP, proof that his appearances weren’t aided by luck or an abnormally BABIP.
His 2016 season followed a cup of coffee in 2015 in which he was also effective, in 76.2 innings he posted a 3.64 ERA with a 3.42 FIP.
It’s safe to expect that Ross will continue to be an above average pitcher for this Nationals team, his strikeout rate is above average and he has a low homerun rate.
His batted ball types are mostly average across the board but has a tendency to force more groundballs rather than allowing flyballs.
Julio Teheran last year was one of the better pitchers in the league and when considering his age, was a bright spot for the future of the Braves.
He finished with 188 innings pitched and an ERA of 3.21 while only walking about two batters per nine innings.
He’s off to another good start this season as well with an ERA of 0.95 in three appearances, but his walk rate has doubled thus far this season.
His LOB% is currently sitting at an excellent 84% so it’s possible that he’ll seem some regression in upcoming starts.

Free Washington Nationals vs. Atlanta Braves MLB Prediction:
The Nationals have the second best offense in baseball at this point of the season and with Teheran putting a lot of runners on the basepaths but escaping mostly unscathed; he’s due for a bad inning even an outing.
