David Price, Tampa Bay Rays (5-1, 2.35 ERA)
The big lefty fanned a season-high 12 batters in his last outing, allowing just a single run in a 7-2 win over Oakland. In his last three starts, he has allowed three earned runs, walked just three, and has a complete game under his belt. He’s 5-2 in 14 starts against the Yanks.
CC Sabathia, New York Yankees (4-0, 4.15 ERA)
Sabathia shares the mound with Price Wednesday and is also riding a hot streak. He has thrown eight innings in each of his last three outings and has struck out 21 batters over that span. You’d like to see the ERA a little lower right now, but it’s hard to argue with 43 strikeouts in 43 1/3 innings.
Kevin Correia, Pittsburgh Pirates (1-2, 3.38 ERA)
The Reds touched Correia for five runs and nine hits in a 6-1 win the last time he toed the rubber. The 31-year-old also served up back-to-back home runs in the seventh inning and has just 12 strikeouts in 29 1/3 innings so far this year. The Pirates are averaging 2.8 runs in his starts.
Jason Marquis, Minnesota Twins (2-1, 5.40 ERA)
With only six games on tap Thursday, we struggled to find slumping starters. Even though Marquis walked six batters during a 7-0 loss to Seattle last week, he only gave up two earned runs on four hits over six innings. Still, the veteran seems to be holding on by a thread right now. He has only eight strikeouts this season and has a 1.54 WHIP.
