Los Angeles Angels Fantasy Spin
Griffin Canning pitched five innings of one-run ball Friday against the Rangers. Canning left with a two-run lead, but it didn't last. If he had been more efficient, perhaps he would have picked up a win tonight, but he had to leave after throwing 95 pitches in five innings. The rookie has a nice 3.42 ERA, and it looks like he'll get to stick in the rotation even though Andrew Heaney is coming back.
Oakland A’s Fantasy Spin
Daniel Mengden was lifted after allowing one run in four innings Friday against the Mariners. Mengden walked five and threw 99 pitches in the four innings, so he didn't get a chance to go for the win in a game the A's were leading 4-1. Facing a rather easy schedule, Mengden has a 3.31 ERA in three starts since being called up. He's not an All-Star or anything close, but he really should have been in Oakland's rotation all along this year.
MLB Betting Trends
The Angels are just 1-4 in their last five games played on Wednesday.
The A’s are 5-1 in Mengden’s last six starts and are 7-3 in his last 10 outings at home.
