Castillo – he’s been pretty tough on the Cubs this year. In his 2 outings against them, he’s struck out 12 batters while giving up just 3 runs and 2 quality starts.
Musgrove – St Louis just hasn’t been the same team since Ozuna went on the IL. Musgrove has QS in 3 out of his last 4 starts including 2 wins and 18 k’s. Musgrove has also allowed just 4 runs in his last 4 starts.
Plutko – He doesn’t have any overpowering stuff, but he’s facing a Detroit team that got shut down by Brad Keller. He needs to mix in his slider more than usual tonight, which has been the key to the strikeout bump against the Tigers.
Dodgers – Eflin has been thrashed for 15 runs in his last 3 starts, with 2 of those starts allowing 6 runs. Now he faced a power lineup, including a healthy Seager.
Pittsburgh – YES, I do love Mikolas but this is a tough spot for him. Lefties are going to crush my man tonight and love 4-7.
Atlanta – Houser has struggled since being put into the rotation. Great spot for the power bats tonight and a red hot Donaldson.
Little bit of love
