MLB EZ Pick Preview 07/16/19
Take a look at the pitchers matchup set for this Tuesday’s EZ Pick.
Anthony DeSclafani – RHP
Game: Reds vs Cubs in Chicago
2019 Season Stats: 5-4, 4.26 ERA, 90 SO
DeSclafani gave up two runs on seven hits and two walks over six innings in his last outing. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision. Francisco Lindor provided Cleveland’s only offense against DeSclafani, as he hit a pair of solo home runs to right field. The 29-year-old finished the first half on a strong note Saturday and has a 4.26 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 90:26 K:BB through 86.2 innings.
Zack Wheeler – RHP
Game: Mets vs Twins in Minnesota
2019 Season Stats: 6-6, 4.69 ERA, 130 SO
Wheeler (6-6) gave up six runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out seven through five innings to take the loss against the Phillies in his last start. He ran into trouble from the start as he allowed a hit to five of the first six hitters he faced and gave up four runs in the first inning. The righty was able to recover and pitch four scoreless frames before being chased from the game in the sixth. The 29-year-old could be a trade candidate for the selling Mets, but this performance did not improve his value. Wheeler has a 6-6 record with a 4.69 ERA through 19 starts.
