1:05 PM EST. Anibal Sanchez (RHP - WAS) is coming off a fine start at Atlanta. Chicago’s .678 OPS over the last two weeks (accompanied by a lowly 0.22 Eye) ranks last among MLB’s 30 clubs. Sanchez has done well to limit hard contact, and he’s exhibited a definitive uptick in swinging strikes over recent weeks. However, this wager has nothing to do with getting behind Sanchez and everything to do with fading one of the worst starters this league has ever seen.
Dylan Covey (RHP - CHW) went 5-14 with a 5.18 ERA in 122 innings for the South Side last year and that’s when he was pitching well by his standards. He had some early success with a velocity uptick and a increased sinker usage but then he moved to/from the bullpen as his numbers tanked. His career MLB stats prior to this year: 5-21, 6.10 ERA, 1.55 WHIP in roughly a full season's innings pitched. This year, Covey has walked 19 and struck out 18 in 32 innings! Throw in a horrible 33%/27%/40% groundball /line-drive/flyball rate and a 6.30 xERA and we trust we’re getting outstanding value here on the Nats to win going away.
