The Padres' Tyson Ross has been impressive in his last eight starts, boasting a 1.47 ERA with 60 strikeouts in 55 innings.

Tyson Ross, Padres (vs. Braves) – Ross has allowed no more than two runs while going at least six innings in his last eight starts. All told, he has a 1.47 ERA with 60 strikeouts across 55 innings in that span. It has been a productive season for the San Diego righty, who is 10-10 with a 2.60 ERA, 3.13 FIP, 1.18 WHIP and 150 strikeouts in 148 2/3 innings. He should rack up plenty of strikeouts on Sunday against a Braves team that has a 22-percent strikeout rate.

Miguel Cabrera, Tigers (vs. Rockies, Jorge De La Rosa) – Cabrera is riding a modest five-game hit streak, going 7-for-19 total on the streak thus far. He went deep on Saturday which broke a six-game home run and RBI drought. He doesn’t have a ton of experience against De La Rosa, but he certainly has liked what he has seen in a small sample of plate appearances. Cabrera is 3-for-6 with a homer, a double and six RBI against the Colorado lefty.

Jose Bautista, Blue Jays (@ Astros, Scott Feldman) – Bautista has slowed a bit from the torrent pace he was on just a few weeks ago. He has just four hits in his last 18 at-bats, though one of those did leave the yard. However, he comes into Sunday’s action with a good track record against Feldman. He is 5-for-13 with a home run, two doubles and five RBI against the veteran starter.

Other Recommendations


Yu Darvish, Rangers (@ Indians) – Darvish bounced back from a rough outing to allow two runs with eight strikeouts in seven innings against the Yankees his last time out.

Madison Bumgarner, Giants (@ Mets) – The Mets are hitting just .237/.310/.362 with a 21.3-percent strikeout rate — a bad mix against any pitcher — but especially one as lethal as Bumgarner.


Adrian Beltre, Rangers (@ Indians, Trevor Bauer) – Beltre went 0-for-4 on Saturday, but he had collected eight hits in his previous 18 at-bats to go along with four runs, four RBI and three walks.

Kolten Wong, Cardinals (vs. Brewers, Matt Garza) – Try to ride the hot bat here, as Wong had a huge day Saturday. He was 3-for-5 with a homer, double and three RBI.


Andrew McCutchen, Pirates (@ Diamondbacks, Trevor Cahill) – McCutchen is 3-for-5 with a double, two RBI and three walks against Cahill in his career.

Matt Holliday, Cardinals (vs. Brewers, Matt Garza) – Holliday sports a .375/.423/.458 slash line in 26 career plate appearances against Garza.
