Pitcher and hitter rankings for Friday

Jul 30 2017 at 07:37pm
As the trade Sammy Sosa Jersey deadline creeps closer and closer, we likely will continue to see a bevy of names switching sides. On Friday, Jose Quintana will make his third start since joining the Cubs, and Jaime Garcia will make his Matt Szczur Jersey debut as a member of the Twins. Whether names like Yu Darvish, Justin Verlander and Sonny Gray join them in their own deadline deals remains to be seen, but it will be interesting to monitor regardless.

Happ ran into Kosuke Fukudome Jersey some trouble his last time out against Cleveland (seven earned runs in six innings pitched). Prior to that, however, he'd posted a 2.43 ERA in his previous seven outings, which included starts against the Astros, Yankees, Red Sox and Orioles. The left-hander should have a much Andre Dawson Jersey easier time against the Angels, who rank 27th in wOBA versus lefties and 30th in ISO.
Garcia is set to make his Twins Carlos Zambrano Jersey debut and the matchup couldn't be better. In addition to being the worst team in the American League against left-handed pitching (78 wRC+), the A's also sport a bloated 26 percent whiff rate versus sErnie Banks Authentic Jersey outhpaws that's third highest in baseball. That the Oakland Coliseum is one of the game's most pitcher-friendly parks is just a bonus.
