San Diego (Kennedy) -120 at NY Mets (Matsuzaka) O/U 7
Recommendation: San Diego

The Padres and pitching coach Darren Balsley have done great work with this afternoon’s expected started Ian Kennedy. Kennedy struggled with the Arizona Diamondbacks last season before he was traded at the July 31st deadline to the Padres. The struggles continued for the right-hander after he was traded as he posted an overall 4.91 ERA in 2013. However, Kennedy still possessed good stuff and wasn’t too far removed from the 21-4 record and 2.88 ERA of 2011. Prior to this season Kennedy and Balsley were able to make key adjustments and we’ve seen an uptick in velocity and more of a reliance on the curveball. Kennedy’s strikeouts are up, walks are down, and he’s clearly outpitched (3.02 xFIP) his current 3.63 ERA and 5-7 W-L record.

Kansas City (Duffy) at Chicago WS (Noesi) -110 O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Chicago

I don't think Chicago's Hector Noesi is as bad as his overall numbers (5.40 ERA) suggest. Remember, this guy is pitching for this third team this season which isn't exactly ideal for one's psyche. Now that he's settled in on the South Side, it appears that White Sox pitching coach/guru Don Cooper has made an impact with Noesi who shows a solid 3.86 ERA over his last seven starts. And it should be pointed out that if you take away two outings against powerful Detroit, Noesi has been nearly automatic in the quality start department. Bottom line is he’s a 6 IP, 3/4 ER guy but with the potential to be far better this afternoon facing one of the worst offenses in the American League. Kansas City's Danny Duffy is slowly getting back into form after arm problems cut short his 2013 season. At times Duffy has been effective but he's also flashing numerous red flags. For starters his K per 9 rate is a modest Read more
