Thursday's Starters: Santana Headlines Hot Money Pitchers

Thursday features a few starting pitchers that have been strong for bettors during their most recent starts.

Here's a look at three pitchers taking the hill Thursday that have been cashing in for moneyline bettors recently.

Ervin Santana, Kansas City Royals (3-1, 2.00 ERA)

The Royals have won Santana's last four starts earning the $100 bettor $360.85 if betting on the righty in those four games. All four of those were quality starts as he has given up just four earned runs in 30 innings pitched.

Kansas City is at home to conclude its series against the Tampa Bay Rays Thursday. The Rays will counter with Roberto Hernandez.

Justin Grimm, Texas Rangers (2-0, 1.59 ERA)

Grimm will make his fourth start of the season Thursday and he is coming off seven innings of shutout work against the Minnesota Twins on April 26. Texas has won all three games that Grimm has started this season and bettors would be up $280.45 when wagering on Grimm's starts this season.

The Rangers host the Chicago White Sox Thursday evening in the final game of the series. Jake Peavy is on the mound for the White Sox.

Wily Peralta, Milwaukee Brewers (2-1, 5.02 ERA)

Milwaukee has won Peralta's last three starts and the righty has personally notched wins in his last two outings. Peralta's put together two excellent starts in a row, giving up five earned runs in 12 2-3 innings pitched in those two games. The $100 bettor would be up $278.30 if wagering on Milwaukee in Peralta's last three starts.

The Brewers open a four game home stand versus the St. Louis Cardinals Thursday. Jake Westbrook gets the start for the Cards.

MLB: Streaks, Trends, Notes

Washington Nationals at Atlanta Braves

The Washington Nationals behind Jordan Zimmermann's eight scoreless innings of two-hit ball defeated Atlanta 2-0 last night to snap a nine game skid against the Braves. The first-place Braves couldn't do anything against the right-hander who has now blanked his last two opponents surrendering just three hits, walking one while striking out twelve batters. Braves slump at the plate will be short-lived as they get to swing at Dan Haren (2-3, 6.29 ERA) offerings in the finale. Haren pitched his best game as a member of the Nationals last time out lasting six strong vs Reds but that one was on home turf, this one is on the road where the righty is 0-2 with a whopping 9.72 ERA. Braves countering with Kris Medlen (1-3, 3.26 ERA) helps the home team cause. Braves were 2-0 vs Nats w/Medlen last year with the right hander giving up a single run over 14 innings of work in a starter roll. Consider Atlanta knowing Braves are 2-0 at home off a loss the previous night, 8-2 last ten situations and that Braves are on a 15-1 streak vs the division with Medlen touching toe to rubber.
