MLB Betting Notes: LA's Ervin Santana searches for better command

Los Angeles (Santana) at Tampa Bay (Price) -140 O/U 8

LA's Ervin Santana tries to regain his form after three rough starts. The first inning has been problematic for Santana having allowed three runs in each outing. The home run ball is also an issue – as it has been for much of his career – with six long balls (two each game) allowed. According to Santana, his lack of command with the fastball has been the issue.

"There's not a lot he has to change to just give this team a chance to win," Scioscia said. "[Finding fastball command] is not that big of an adjustment. It's all in his delivery. He can make a quick fix."

"The location of the fastball — that's why we have bullpen sessions — I need to keep it down and control it," Santana said.
