TODAY'S STARTING PITCHERS:

2016 W L ERA FIP K% BB% AVG BABIP HR GS IP fWAR
Dylan Bundy 2 1 3.08 3.70 19.2% 7.2% .303 .368 3 0/22 38.0 0.5
Jake Odorizzi 3 5 4.47 4.39 22.5% 7.8% .246 .286 17 19 104.2 1.1

Odorizzi closed out the first half of the season on a sour note as he has struggled since the beginning of June. Since his start on June 8th, he has only completed six full innings once in seven attempts. His last start was on the 10th against the Red Sox where he allowed four runs on six hits -- one home run -- while he walked one and struck out four completing five innings on his way to his fifth loss of the season.

Dylan Bundy Scouting Report:

Dylan Bundy will be making his first major league start later today. The former top prospect has served out of the Baltimore bullpen so far for the 2016 season with decent results. He should be fairly well rested, having pitched in his last game on July 6th, in which he dominated by striking out seven over two and two-thirds innings pitched holding the Dodgers scoreless.
