Here are two streaking and two slumping MLB pitchers set to take the hill Tuesday:
Carlos Villanueva, Chicago Cubs (1-0, 1.29 ERA)
Villanueva has been effective since making the transition to the National League. But the righty has only one win to show for three quality starts against top-notch opponents. Villanueva has yielded just three earned runs in 21 innings pitched against the Atlanta Braves, San Francisco Giants and Texas Rangers.
Patrick Corbin, Arizona Diamondbacks (2-0, 1.42 ERA)
The Diamondbacks are 3-0 in Corbin's starts. The rookie has only been touched up for three earned runs in 19 innings of work against the Milwaukee Brewers, Los Angeles Dodgers and New York Yankees.
Jason Vargas, Los Angeles Angels (0-2, 6.75 ERA)
Vargas has been awful since making the move from Seattle to Los Angeles. The lefty has yet to complete six innings in each of his first three starts and has surrendered 10 earned runs over his last two outings. Vargas is 4-6 with a 4.48 ERA in his career versus the Rangers.
David Price, Tampa Bay Rays (0-1, 6.26 ERA)
The Rays’ ace is winless in his first four starts and was touched up for five earned runs in his last start against the Baltimore Orioles. The lefty owns a career 3.77 ERA against the Bronx Bombers – his second-highest mark against any AL opponent
On Tuesday the Free MLB totals play is on the Over in the Atlanta at Colorado game. Rotation numbers 933/934 at 3:10 eastern. This game fits a solid totals system. We want to play the over for road favorites like the Braves with a total that is 9.5 or higher, if they are off a road favored loss in a game where the total was 8 or less. Atlanta laid and egg in Pittsburgh getting swept after starting out a league best 11-1. Now their bats should awaken in Coors field against a hot hitting Colorado team that has J. Francis going. Francis has a 6.10 era at home and has not fared well in Day starts today he faces M. Minor for the Braves who was lit up like a Christmas tree in his only start here allowing 8 earned runs in 5 innings. Minor has posted over in 4 of 5 April road starts. In the series here between these two 9 of the last 11 have flown over. The Braves have gone over 4 of the last 5 road games with a total that is 9.5 to 10.5. Colorado has gone over in 17 of 22 as a home dog of +100 to +125 and 5 of 7 vs winning teams. Take the Over.
