Alex Cobb has developed himself into a key part of the San Francisco Giants rotation. Today, the Giants take on the Miami Marlins, who, as a team, have struck out an average of 8.5 times per game.
Cobb is coming off a performance against the Los Angeles Dodgers, where he only struck out two batters in 3.2 innings of work. However, his first two performances of the year yielded six strikeouts per outing. We’re expecting a bounce back from Cobb today and are looking for him to mow down the Marlins.
Jake Woodford hasn’t made it past the sixth inning in any of his first three starts to begin the 2023 MLB season. His most recent outing was against the Pittsburgh Pirates, who racked up seven hits, and Woodford only threw 81 pitches in this contest.
Today, Woodford and the Saint Louis Cardinals take on the red-hot Arizona Diamondbacks, who are on fire to start the year. While Woodford didn’t allow a run in his last outing, the Diamondbacks are proving to be a different beast. We’re expecting Woodford to be pulled relatively early in this game, resulting in a low pitch count.
Trea Turner started the season off hot for the Philadelphia Phillies, getting up to a .391 batting average over his first four games of the season. While he has cooled as of late, not getting a hit in his last two appearances, we’re expecting Turner to have a big game today.
The White Sox are rolling out Mike Clevinger today, however. In 13 career plate appearances against Clevinger, Turner has racked up six hits, including a double and a home run. Turner’s hitting woes should be temporary, which is why we’re anticipating a big day from him.
The Pittsburgh Pirates have started the 2023 campaign better than anyone could have expected, and Bryan Reynolds has been a large part of that. He has a .319 average to begin the season and will look to continue his greatness today against the Colorado Rockies.
While Reynolds has only hit the over on this total once in his last three games, we like his chances today, especially with the high altitude of Coors Field.
