    962 Atlanta at Baltimore

    Battle of two lefties tonight in Baltimore. Cole Hamels returns from the DL for his first appearance of the season. His pitch count will likely be low since he has been out so long. While once a legit top of the line starter, he’s now just an average MLB pitcher. Keegan Akin looked great in his first two starts of the year. But as expected the Yankees saw him twice in the same week and the second start resulted in a 30 game score. Now that he’s facing the Braves for the first time we expect a successful outing. We’ve always loved backing unknown left-handed starters the first time through the league. Baltimore should have a solid pitching edge here. 

    As good as the Braves have been this season vs righties, their wRC+ vs lefties is only 89, 11% worse than league average. Baltimore comes in at a wRC+ of 102 against southpaws. Nice underdog price here with the O’s.
