Check Out Our Winning MLB SU Picks For July 9
Minnesota at Texas (8:05pm ET)
Pitching Matchup: Twins: Ricky Nolasco (3-7, 5.26 ERA) vs. Rangers: Nick Martinez (1-2, 6.45 ERA)
The problem with Nick Martinez is that opposing hitters figure him out after a couple of turns through the order. He has a decent fastball and breaking stuff, but it’s not dominant enough for him to prosper that third time through. When the problems start earlier, you get outings like the one we saw last time out when the Red Sox got 11 hits and six runs in 4 ⅓ innings. Against a team like the Twins, Martinez should be able to get through five innings and then turn the ball over to the bullpen. The Twins counter with Ricky Nolasco, who had a good start last time out (six scoreless innings before the wheels came off in the seventh). The Ranger bats should be able to find their way to Nolasco and deliver a Texas win.
New York Yankees at Cleveland (4:10pm ET)
Pitching Matchup: Yankees: C.C. Sabathia (5-6, 3.48 ERA) vs. Indians: Danny Salazar (10-3, 2.36 ERA)
Remember when Sabathia came back from that groin injury and was blowing hitters away? Well, no longer. In his last three starts, Sabathia is sporting an unsightly 8.31 ERA (before that, his ERA for the season was a stately 2.20). He has pitched well historically against the Tribe, though, posting a 4-2 record with a 3.12 ERA. The Indians send the June AL Pitcher of the Month to the hill in Salazar. However, he had a bump in the road last time out, permitting three runs and eight hits in 5 ⅔ innings against the Tigers. However, I like Salazar to right the ship and lead Cleveland to a win here.
Arizona at San Francisco (4:05pm ET)
Pitching Matchup: Diamondbacks: Robbie Ray (4-7, 4.78 ERA) vs. Giants: Jake Peavy (5-7, 5.14 ERA)
This doesn’t look like a potential Cy Young duel right now, as Ray has gone 0-2 in his last three starts, permitting four runs in all of them. He did see the Giants on Sunday, fanning eight but also allowing eight base hits. However, in his career, he has three starts against the Giants with an aggregate 3.18 ERA. Jake Peavy has been all over the place for the Giants, perhaps the most unreliable starter on the first team to win 54 games in MLB this season. Paul Goldschmidt, Michael Bourn and Welington Castillo have all taken Peavy deep in their careers. I like the Diamondbacks to take this game.
