Three Hot MLB Moneyline Arms to Consider Sunday
By Covers.com

There is a lot of action on the board Sunday, but we'll focus on three pitchers getting the start who may be worth look on the moneyline. These guys are coming off some great performances and are hot going into their respective starts Sunday.

Scott Feldman, Chicago Cubs (3-3, 2.70)

Feldman has wins in his last three outings and his ERA has dropped after a rough start in his first three games. Feldman's ERA is an excellent 1.61 in his last three starts and was 4.50 following his lukewarm start to the season. Feldman has just four earned runs in 22 2/3 innings pitched in those three starts.

The Cubbies continue their series with the Washington Nationals Sunday.

Eric Stults, San Diego Padres, (3-2, 4.50 ERA)

The Padres have won each of the last three games that Stults has started and the lefty is coming off a pair of his best starts this season. In the 13 innings pitched in his previous two outings, he has yielded just three earned runs.

Stults will get the ball versus the Tampa Bay Rays Sunday.

Zach McAllister, Cleveland Indians, (3-3, 2.63 ERA)

The big righty leads the Tribe with a 2.63 ERA and is coming off two excellent performances. McAllister went 7 2/3 strong innings with no earned runs in his last outing versus the Oakland A's. Over his last two starts, he has just been touched up for two earned runs in 14 2/3 innings.

The Indians will finish their series versus the Detroit Tigers Sunday.

Sunday Night Baseball: Angels at White Sox
By Steve Merril
By Covers.com

Two of the most disappointing teams in the American League go at it on Sunday Night Baseball as the Chicago White Sox host the Los Angeles Angels.

Los Angeles Angels at Chicago White Sox (-116, 8)

CHRIS SETS SALE FOR VICTORIES

Chris Sale is on a nice stretch of pitching ever since allowing eight runs in Cleveland to the Indians. He has made four starts since that game, giving up a total of only eight runs while picking up two wins. Sale has been a better pitcher at home throughout his career. This season is no different as he has two wins from his three starts in Chicago. The southpaw faced the Angels last season back on May 17 and he gave up just one run and five hits in just over five innings. He has shown great control on the year, walking only 12 batters in 471/3 innings of work.

WILSON IS WINNING FOR THE ANGELS

C.J. Wilson has been up and down this season despite sporting a 3-1 record. The lefty has allowed three earned runs or more in four of his seven starts. His last time out, Wilson gave up seven runs to the Astros and picked up the loss in a 7-6 game. He struck out 12 while walking two in that game. The Angels’ starter has battled with control issues, walking four or more batters in all but three starts. Wilson was on the losing end of Sale's start last year as he gave up four runs and four hits in just over three innings. Once again, walks were an issue; he allowed six free passes in that game.

INJURY REPORT

Chicago's infirmary report is relatively clean. The rotation is without Gavin Floyd who had Tommy John surgery and John Danks who is recovering from shoulder surgery. Danks could rejoin the rotation within a few weeks. Gordon Beckham broke a bone in his left wrist back on April 9 and he will be out for a few more weeks. The Angels’ injury issues start with the loss of Jered Weaver. He broke his non-throwing elbow on April 7 and is still recovering. The bullpen is without Ryan Madson (elbow), Sean Burnett (forearm), and Kevin Jepsen (back). Alberto Callaspo is dealing with right calf tightness and remains out. Finally, the Halos are missing the speed of Peter Bourjos who is dealing with a strained hamstring.

TRENDS

*The under is 11-5 in the Angels’ last 16 Sunday games.
*Angels are 6-2 in Wilson's last eight road starts.
*White Sox are 2-5 in their last seven Sunday games.
*White Sox are 11-5 in Sale’s last 16 starts vs. a team with a losing record.

HITTERS TO WATCH

Josh Hamilton 1-for-5 vs. Sale
Mike Trout 0-for-3 vs. Sale

Jeff Keppinger 5-for-21 vs. Wilson
Alex Rios 4-for-12 vs. Wilson

Chicago Cubs vs. Washington Nationals

The Washington Nationals taken behind the woodshed spanked 8-2 yesterday count on Gio Gonzalez (3-2, 4.97 ERA) in the finale of this three game set. The Cubbies trying to record the third win in ten tries vs Nationals and just the third victory in nine trips into Washington pin their hopes on Scott Feldman (3-3, 270 ERA). Nationals have had great success off a loss handing the ball to Gonzalez as they're 11-5 (+$526) including 6-1 (+$441) at home. But, we might be cautious here, Nationals are just 4-3 (-$170) last seven at home laying -$1.70 to -$2.00 and do enter 2-5 (-$454) at home following a loss the previous night. If that were not enough to consider fading Washington, the Nationals are a dreadful 1-4 (-$395) at home off a poor hitting performance (=< 6 hits) and must now face Cubbies Feldman off a 7 inning shutout giving the hurler a smart 3-1 stretch last four with a 1.63 ERA and 23 K's, 7 walks over the span.
