    Preview: Giants at Diamondbacks
    GAME: San Francisco Giants (1-0) at Arizona Diamondbacks (0-1)
    DATE/TIME: Tuesday, April 07 - 9:40 PM EST
    WHERE: Chase Field, Phoenix, Arizona
    LINE: N/A TOTAL: N/A
    One game in, and San Francisco Giants manager Bruce Bochy is already writing his starting rotation down in pencil. Ryan Vogelsong has been pulled from the bullpen and will get the nod Tuesday against the host Arizona Diamondbacks after scheduled starter Jake Peavy was scratched with back stiffness.
    While Peavy is expected to be ready later this week, Bochy expressed concern about Wednesday’s starter, Matt Cain, who is awaiting the results of an MRI exam after the right-hander complained of tightness in his throwing forearm. If Cain is unavailable, the Giants would likely call on Tim Lincecum or a minor-league starter such as Chris Heston. San Francisco held on for a 5-4 victory in Monday’s season opener after Arizona rallied behind Jake Lamb’s pinch-hit, three-run double in the eighth inning. Lamb outplayed highly touted rookie Yasmany Tomas during spring training and will share time at third base with veteran Aaron Hill.

    PITCHING MATCHUP: Giants RH Ryan Vogelsong (2014: 8-13, 4.00 ERA) vs. Diamondbacks RH Rubby De La Rosa (2014: 4-8, 4.43)
    Vogelsong was re-signed during the offseason to serve as a long reliever along with Yusmeiro Petit, but both pitchers have started in the past. The 37-year-old owns a 49-57 record in 232 career games – including 143 starts. Hill is 14-for-30 with two home runs against Vogelsong, who is 3-6 with a 4.45 ERA in 21 career games (15 starts) against the Diamondbacks.
    De La Rosa is set to make his Arizona debut after being acquired from Boston as part of the Wade Miley trade last December. The 26-year-old closed spring training with six innings of one-run ball last Thursday against the White Sox. “He’s a difference-maker, being a power guy in our rotation with (Jeremy) Hellickson and (Josh) Collmenter being more of the finesse-type pitchers,” manager Chip Hale told CBSSports.com.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. The Giants have won their last eight series in Arizona.
    2. Arizona 1B Paul Goldschmidt is 6-for-24 lifetime with eight strikeouts against Vogelsong.
    3. San Francisco’s first three hitters – Nori Aoki, Joe Panik and Angel Pagan – were a combined 8-for-14 in Monday’s season opener.
    TRENDS
    Giants are 4-1 in their last 5 overall.
    Giants are 7-3 in their last 10 road games.
    Giants are 0-5 in Vogelsongs last 5 road starts.
    Diamondbacks are 2-8 in their last 10 during game 2 of a series.
    Diamondbacks are 1-5 in their last 6 home games.
    Over is 5-1 in Giants last 6 road games.
    Over is 3-0-1 in Vogelsongs last 4 road starts.
    Over is 4-1 in Diamondbacks last 5 vs. National League West.


    Preview: Rangers at Athletics
    GAME: Texas Rangers (0-1) at Oakland Athletics (1-0)
    DATE/TIME: Tuesday, April 07 - 10:05 PM EST
    WHERE: O.co Coliseum, Oakland, California
    LINE: 151, -164 TOTAL: 7.5
    The Oakland Athletics ended a long Opening Day drought with a victory and attempt to start 2-0 when they host the Texas Rangers on Tuesday. Oakland had lost a record 10 straight openers before Sonny Gray took a no-hitter into the eighth inning Monday to lead the Athletics to an 8-0 victory.
    Ryan Rua broke up the no-hitter with a leadoff single in the eighth on an 0-2 pitch for the Rangers’ lone hit. Oakland hadn’t won on Opening Day since 2004 before using an 11-hit attack – including homers from Ben Zobrist and Stephen Vogt – to rout Texas as Gray allowed one hit in eight innings. The possibility of being no-hit didn’t bother Rangers right fielder Shin-Soo Choo. “Whether you lose 10-0 or 1-0, losing is losing,” Choo told reporters. “I don’t think (a no-hitter) makes it much worse. Losing is losing.”
    TV: 10:05 p.m. ET, FSN Southwest (Texas), CSN California (Oakland)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Rangers RH Colby Lewis (2014: 10-14, 5.18 ERA) vs. Athletics RH Jesse Hahn (7-4, 3.07)
    Lewis reached double digits in victories for the fourth time last season but also allowed a career-worst 211 hits. He was 1-0 with a 4.38 ERA in two starts against Oakland last season and is 8-4 with a 3.23 ERA in 22 career outings (20 starts) against the Athletics. Left-handers had a collective .320 average last season against Lewis.
    Hahn was acquired from San Diego in the offseason as part of the deal in which catcher Derek Norris went to the Padres. He made 12 starts for the Padres last season and struck out 70 in 73 1/3 innings. Hahn held opposing hitters to a .214 average and allowed only four homers.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. DH Billy Butler went 1-for-4 with an RBI double in his Athletics debut.
    2. Rangers 1B Prince Fielder was hitless in four at-bats in his first game since neck surgery cut his 2014 season short.
    3. With Coco Crisp (elbow) sidelined, RF Craig Gentry served as Oakland’s leadoff hitter and went 0-for-5 with three strikeouts.
    TRENDS
    Rangers are 13-4 in their last 17 overall.
    Rangers are 5-2 in their last 7 road games.
    Athletics are 7-19 in their last 26 games following a win.
    Over is 6-1 in Rangers last 7 road games.
    Under is 6-2-1 in Rangers last 9 overall.
    Over is 4-1 in Athletics last 5 home games.


    Preview: Angels at Mariners
    GAME: Los Angeles Angels (0-1) at Seattle Mariners (1-0)
    DATE/TIME: Tuesday, April 07 - 10:10 PM EST
    WHERE: Safeco Field, Seattle, Washington
    LINE: 121, -131 TOTAL: 7.5
    The Seattle Mariners are expecting to contend for the American League West crown and continuing to have success against the visiting Los Angeles Angels can only help in that quest. Seattle began the season with a 4-1 victory over the Angels, the defending division champions who won 98 games last season, and look for a second straight win on Tuesday.
    Beating the Mariners has been difficult for Los Angeles, which went 7-12 against Seattle last season and was stymied by Felix Hernandez on Opening Day. Reigning AL MVP Mike Trout homered off Hernandez in the first inning for the Angels’ lone run and the pitcher known as “King Felix” struck out 10 in seven innings. Mariners newcomer Seth Smith was the hitting star by going 3-for-3 – two doubles, one triple – with two RBIs to highlight a 10-hit attack. Dustin Ackley homered for the Mariners while Austin Jackson and Brad Miller each had two hits for Seattle.
    TV: 10:10 p.m. ET, FSN West (Los Angeles), ROOT (Seattle)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Angels LH C.J. Wilson (2014: 13-10, 4.51 ERA) vs. Mariners LH James Paxton (6-4, 3.04)
    Wilson is coming off a mediocre season in which he posted his highest ERA since 2008 and pitched less than 200 innings for the first time since 2009. He limited Seattle hitters to a .196 average last season but went just 1-2 with a 3.42 ERA in four starts. Wilson has owned Seattle third baseman Kyle Seager, who is 3-for-33 with 15 strikeouts against him.
    Paxton displayed promise as a rookie but also missed time with a shoulder injury as he made just 13 starts. He had another scare during spring training when he tripped and injured his left forearm but was recently cleared. Paxton went 2-1 with a 2.59 ERA in four starts against the Angels last season
    WALK-OFFS
    1. DH Nelson Cruz was hitless in four at-bats in his Mariners debut.
    2. Trout’s next homer will be the 100th of his career.
    3. Smith became the first player in Seattle franchise history with three extra-base hits on Opening Day.
    TRENDS
    Angels are 0-5 in their last 5 road games.
    Angels are 0-7 in their last 7 overall.
    Angels are 3-13 in Wilsons last 16 road starts.
    Mariners are 4-0 in their last 4 home games.
    Mariners are 5-0 in their last 5 overall.
    Mariners are 6-1 in Paxtons last 7 home starts.
    Under is 5-1 in Angels last 6 overall.
    Over is 5-2 in Wilsons last 7 starts overall.
    Under is 4-0 in Paxtons last 4 home starts.
    Under is 4-1 in Paxtons last 5 starts overall.


    Preview: Padres at Dodgers
    GAME: San Diego Padres (0-1) at Los Angeles Dodgers (1-0)
    DATE/TIME: Tuesday, April 07 - 10:10 PM EST
    WHERE: Dodger Stadium, Los Angeles, California
    LINE: 139, -151 TOTAL: 6.5
    The San Diego Padres stole the spotlight on Sunday with yet another blockbuster deal, but one of the Los Angeles Dodgers’ own key offseason addition via trade made sure the National League West favorites got their season off on the right foot. After hitting the tiebreaking three-run homer in the eighth inning on Opening Day, Jimmy Rollins looks to power the Dodgers to their 14th home win in their last 18 meetings with the Padres on Tuesday.
    The Padres, who dealt for outfielders Wil Myers, Justin Upton and former Dodger Matt Kemp among others during an eventful offseason, added four-time All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel along with Melvin Upton Jr. from the Atlanta Braves over the weekend. Neither Kimbrel nor Melvin Upton played Monday, but Kemp haunted his former team with two hits and three RBIs after receiving a warm welcome from the crowd before his first at-bat. Rollins made a memorable Dodgers debut after 15 years with the Philadelphia Phillies, capping a late rally with his blast in a 6-3 win for Los Angeles. The comeback was a rare one for the Dodgers, who went 2-54 in games in which they trailed after six innings in 2014.
    TV: 10:10 p.m. ET, FSN San Diego, SportsNet LA (Los Angeles)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Padres RH Tyson Ross (2014: 13-14, 2.81 ERA) vs. Dodgers RH Zack Greinke (2014: 17-8, 2.71)
    Ross became a full-time starter for the first time in his career last year and was rewarded with his first All-Star nod. The 27-year-old more than doubled his career win total of nine entering the campaign while finishing eighth in the NL in strikeouts (195) and complete games (two) as well as 11th in ERA. Ross received very little help from the league’s worst offense last season versus the Dodgers, however, losing each of his four turns against them despite a 2.67 ERA.
    Despite a frustrating offseason which included a precautionary right elbow lubricating injection in February, Greinke looks to build upon a solid second season in which he set a career high in victories. The two-time All-Star finished seventh in the NL Cy Young Award voting and collected his first Gold Glove even though he committed his first error in over four years. Greinke has been dominant in seven career outings versus the Padres, going 4-0 with a 1.84 ERA while holding them to a .161 batting average.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Greinke owns the highest all-time winning percentage (.727) by a Dodgers pitcher with a minimum of 50 starts.
    2. Ex-Padre C Yasmani Grandal, who was part of the five-player trade used to acquire Kemp, is expected to make his Los Angeles debut on Tuesday.
    3. After outhomering the opposition 49-24 in spring training, the Dodgers belted two more on Monday as seven of their nine hits went for extra bases.
    TRENDS
    Padres are 4-1 in their last 5 games following a loss.
    Padres are 1-4 in their last 5 overall.
    Padres are 0-4 in Ross' last 4 road starts.
    Dodgers are 7-1 in their last 8 home games.
    Dodgers are 7-3 in their last 10 overall.
    Dodgers are 25-6 in Greinkes last 31 home starts.
    Over is 6-2 in Padres last 8 road games.
    Under is 21-7-1 in Ross' last 29 starts overall.
    Over is 19-5-2 in Dodgers last 26 overall.
    Over is 4-1 in Greinkes last 5 starts vs. a team with a losing record.

    Per oggi mi gioco i Dodgers con handicap -1( per giocare l'handicap -1 bisogna giocare sul testa a testa e la vincita netta puntarla sull'handicap -1.5 .

    I Dodgers, come dicevo nel post precedente, schierano il miglior pitcher della MLB e cio Clayton Kershaw
    Entrano con handicap i Dodgers

    @gurupoker: per capire se un pitcher forte o meno, servono almeno 50 innings giocati e inoltre noi vediamo anche se sta lanciando bene negli ultimi 30 giorni(questo ora non lo possiamo sapere dal momento che appena iniziata la stagione). Cmq i parametri che noi consideriamo in primis sono whip e siera di ogni pitcher

    Si ma se bastasse saremmo ricchi in molti
    bisogna valutare i mancini o i desti e come giocano vs gli attacchi di volta in volta...le serie come stanno andando..il bullpen che non per niente da sottovalutare. chiaro che il pitcher sposta molto nella valutazione, ma in un gioco di stats cos enorme non basta basarsi su quello per me.

    per me la quota rimane sempre quella che da valore, perch possibile che kershaw perda anche con me contrapposto, quindi prenderlo @1.20 nn ci trovo valore...piuttosto gli underdog @2+ di quota sono interessanti quando schierano pitchers che si accoppiano bene con le lineup e sono a livello del lanciatore avversario
    Non giocare il testa a testa nel baseball in quanto le quote sono molto + basse dell'hockey. Io trovo + profittevole giocare l'handicap -1.
    La quota media si aggira intorno all'1.60

    MLB - Risultati 7 Aprile

    Marlins-Braves 2-12
    MIAMI -- Atlanta Braves left-hander Alex Wood said his team's lengthy top of the first inning threw him off a bit when it was his turn to take the mound.
    However, since the Braves scored seven runs in their half of the inning, Wood said he really didn't mind at all.
    "That wasn't what I was expecting -- 40 or 45 minutes before I threw my first pitch," Wood said after Atlanta cruised past the Miami Marlins 12-2 Tuesday night at Marlins Park. "I got an AB (at-bat) before I threw my first pitch.
    "But anytime they want to do that, I'm definitely all right with it."
    First baseman Freddie Freeman and shortstop Andrelton Simmons each went 3-for-5 with two RBIs to lead Atlanta. Third baseman Chris Johnson also added two hits and two RBIs.
    Right-handed starter Mat Latos, who made his Marlins debut, lasted just two-thirds of an inning, allowing six hits, two walks, one wild pitch and seven runs, all earned.


    Mariners-Angels 2-0
    SEATTLE -- Los Angeles left-hander C.J. Wilson kept Seattle's rebuilt lineup in check, while third baseman David Freese provided all the offense in the Angels' win at Safeco Field.
    Wilson, pitching in an official game for the first time since being unable to make it through the first inning of his only postseason outing in October, held the Mariners to two hits over eight scoreless innings to give the Angels their first win of the season.
    Wilson gave up a one-out single in the third inning before retiring the next 14 batters he faced. Closer Huston Street came on in the ninth and retired the side to earn his first save of the season.


    Diamondbacks-Giants 7-6
    PHOENIX -- Third baseman Jake Lamb and left fielder David Peralta hit three-run home runs to help Arizona right-hander Rubby De La Rosa win his shaky debut over San Francisco at Salt River Fields.
    Peralta's homer gave the Diamondbacks a 4-2 lead in the third inning, and Lamb's homer off right-hander Ryan Vogelsong in the fifth inning broke a tie at 4. It was the first homer of the year for each.
    De La Rosa gave up eight hits and six runs in 5 1/3 innings for his first NL victory since 2011, when he was with the Los Angeles Dodgers. He was obtained from Boston in the offseason.


    Athletics-Rangers 1-3
    OAKLAND -- Right-hander Colby Lewis pitched six strong innings, first baseman Prince Fielder drove in two runs and Texas won at O.co Coliseum.
    Lewis continued his history of strong performances against the A's. Entering the game, Lewis was 8-4 with a 3.23 ERA for his career against Oakland. He was 6-3 with a 3.05 ERA in Oakland.
    The Rangers avenged an 8-0 loss on Opening Day to Oakland.
    Fielder went 2-for-3 and reached base in the first inning when he was hit by a pitch. Center fielder Leonys Martin and shortstop Elvis Andrus each had two hits.


    Rays-Orioles 5-6
    ST. PETERSBURG -- Steve Pearce went 2-for-4 with a home run to lift Baltimore past Tampa Bay at Tropicana Field.
    Pearce has five home runs in his last 11 games against the Rays at Tropicana Field.
    Orioles reliever Kevin Gausman gave up two runs in 2 1/3 innings to earn the win. Zach Britton pitched a perfect ninth for the save.
    Rays starter Nathan Karns gave up six runs, five hits and four walks in 5 2/3 innings.


    Brewers-Rockies 2-5
    MILWAUKEE -- Right-hander Jordan Lyles worked six innings of two-run ball, and Colorado hit six doubles for the second consecutive day en route to the victory over Milwaukee at Miller Park.
    Lyles (1-0) held the Brewers to five hits with a walk while striking out two. Three Colorado relievers threw one scoreless inning apiece, with LaTroy Hawkins earning his first save.
    The Rockies' offense picked up where they left off Monday, belting out 12 hits. Catcher Nick Hundley accounted for three hits, while third baseman Nolan Arenado, second baseman DJ LeMahieu and shortstop Troy Tulowitzki finished with two apiece.


    Cardinals-Cubs, postponed
    CHICAGO -- The threat of rain and sub-freezing wind chills forced postponement of Tuesday's game at Wrigley Field.
    The extra day between games might have been a blessing to help the Cubs resolve facilities issues that arose during Sunday's Opening Night.
    Fan discomfort and limited restroom facilities resulting from Wrigley Field construction were exacerbated by breakdowns in two other restrooms during the game that caused extremely long lines and waits of up to 45 minutes. Some fans ended up using beer cups to relieve themselves.
    A makeup date for Tuesday's postponement was not announced

    MLB - Preview 8 Aprile

    Preview: Twins at Tigers
    GAME: Minnesota Twins (0-1) at Detroit Tigers (1-0)
    DATE/TIME: Wednesday, April 08 - 1:08 PM EST
    WHERE: Comerica Park, Detroit, Michigan
    LINE: 179, -195 TOTAL: 8
    The Detroit Tigers look for their second straight dominant pitching performance to open the season when they send Anibal Sanchez to the mound against the visiting Minnesota Twins on Wednesday. David Price blanked the Twins over 8 2/3 innings in a 4-0 victory on Monday as the Tigers collected 10 hits without a contribution from former MVP Miguel Cabrera.
    Cabrera went 0-of-4 and Victor Martinez had only one hit while offseason acquisition Yoenis Cespedes had a double, a triple and stole a home run with a leaping catch. “That was one of those plays that you just say, ‘Wow,’’’ Tigers outfielder J.D. Martinez told the Detroit News. Minnesota will try to turn things around after getting shut out in an opener for the first time since 2000, recording only five hits and no walks. “When you get beat by a good pitcher, there’s not a lot you can do,” Twins manager Paul Molitor told reporters after his debut.
    TV: 1:08 p.m. ET, FSN North (Minnesota), FSN Detroit
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Twins RH Ricky Nolasco (2014: 6-12, 5.38 ERA) vs. Tigers RH Anibal Sanchez (2014: 8-5, 3.43)
    Nolasco’s first season in the American League was a struggle, ending with six losses in his final seven decisions, but the Twins have confidence 2015 will be different. The 32-year-old Californian had a 3.97 ERA in 22 2/3 innings during spring training while surrendering five homers. Victor Martinez is 5-for-7 against Nolasco, who was 1-0 with a 2.33 ERA in three starts versus Detroit last season – capped by a victory on Sept. 27 when he allowed two runs in six innings.
    Sanchez had his 2014 season interrupted twice by injuries and finished the campaign in the bullpen, but he is back healthy and will be depended on to put up solid numbers. The 31-year-old Venezuelan struck out 102 batters in 126 innings last season after winning a career-high 14 games in 2013. Trevor Plouffe is the only Minnesota player with a homer off Sanchez, who is 2-2 with a 2.60 ERA in 10 career outings (nine starts) against the Twins – 1-0 with a .147 batting average against in 2014.
    WALK OFFS
    1. The Twins scored in double digits four times and posted at least six runs in nine of 19 games against the Tigers last season.
    2. Detroit SS Jose Iglesias had two hits and two stolen bases in the opener after missing the 2014 season with a shin injury.
    3. Minnesota’s veteran RF Torii Hunter looks to rebound after going 0-of-4 on Monday with two strikeouts, including one that ended the game.
    TRENDS
    Twins are 3-7 in their last 10 road games.
    Twins are 2-8 in Nolascos last 10 starts.
    Twins are 1-6 in Nolascos last 7 road starts.
    Tigers are 11-5 in their last 16 home games.
    Tigers are 2-5 in their last 7 overall.
    Tigers are 8-3 in Sanchezs last 11 starts.
    Over is 19-8-1 in Twins last 28 overall.
    Under is 4-1 in Nolascos last 5 starts vs. American League Central.
    Under is 6-2-1 in Tigers last 9 home games.
    Over is 4-1 in Sanchezs last 5 starts overall.


    Preview: Cardinals at Cubs
    GAME: St. Louis Cardinals (1-0) at Chicago Cubs (0-1)
    DATE/TIME: Wednesday, April 08 - 2:20 PM EST
    WHERE: Wrigley Field, Chicago, Illinois
    LINE: 104, -113 N/A TOTAL: N/A
    Nasty weather put the brakes on the latest clash between the St. Louis Cardinals and Chicago Cubs, who will wrap up an abbreviated series Wednesday afternoon at Wrigley Field. The threat of rain and sub-freezing wind chills wiped out Tuesday's contest after the Cardinals claimed a 3-0 victory in the season opener Sunday.
    Chicago began the season with high hopes, but the opener marked much of the same for the Cubs, who were 0-for-13 with runners in scoring position after batting .223 in those situations a year ago. The unexpected day off could aid the Cubs' bullpen, though, after they had to use five relievers Sunday. St. Louis hopes the top of its lineup can keep producing after Matt Carpenter, Jason Heyward and Matt Holliday combined to go 7-for-14 with three RBIs in the opener. Both of Tuesday's scheduled starters, Cardinals right-hander Lance Lynn and Cubs righty Jake Arrieta, will be pushed back a day and start Wednesday with both looking to continue their success against their rivals.

    PITCHING MATCHUP: Cardinals RH Lance Lynn (2014: 15-10, 2.74 ERA) vs. Cubs RH Jake Arrieta (2014: 10-5, 2.53)
    Lynn is accustomed to getting off to great starts, having gone 12-1 with a 2.77 ERA in 15 career outings in April. He also has enjoyed success against the Cubs, boasting a 6-3 record and a 3.18 ERA in 11 games (10 starts) against them. Most of Lynn's triumphs over the Cubs have come in St. Louis, though, and he's 2-2 with a 5.04 ERA in six outings at Wrigley Field.
    Arrieta doesn't have a strong record early in the season and didn't make his first start last season until May 3 after beginning the season on the disabled list. The 29-year-old has had the Cardinals' number, going 2-0 with a 0.92 ERA in five career starts against St. Louis. Arrieta was terrific at home last season, going 6-1 with a 1.46 ERA in 12 starts at Wrigley Field.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Heyward, who went 3-for-5 on Sunday, is 6-for-17 with two home runs, five RBIs and four runs scored in the second game of the season during his first five years.
    2. Carpenter and Holliday are a combined 0-for-23 with six walks and eight strikeouts against Arrieta, while Heyward is 2-for-6.
    3. Chicago SS Starlin Castro is 10-for-30 versus Lynn while 1B Anthony Rizzo is 5-for-22 with five strikeouts.

    Preview: Mets at Nationals
    GAME: New York Mets (1-0) at Washington Nationals (0-1)
    DATE/TIME: Wednesday, April 08 - 7:05 PM EST
    WHERE: Nationals Park, Washington, District of Columbia
    LINE: 131, -142 TOTAL: 6.5
    Washington's vaunted starting rotation got off to a great start Opening Day, but the rest of the team laid an egg. The Nationals try to get into the win column for the first time when they send Jordan Zimmermann to the mound against the New York Mets on Wednesday in the continuation of a three-game series in the nation's capital.
    A pair of errors and a meager offensive attack that produced only a solo homer by Bryce Harper led to Washington's 3-1 loss to the Mets on Monday afternoon. With three regular position players on the disabled list to start the season, Washington will need to rely heavily on its top-notch starting staff, and Zimmermann will be looking to follow up a spectacular debut for Max Scherzer, who did not allow an earned run in seven strong innings Monday. Zimmermann will be opposed by 2014 National League Rookie of the Year Jacob deGrom, a big piece in a Mets rotation that also shows promise. New York was unable to get through the opener unscathed, as closer Jenrry Mejia felt tightness in his elbow warming up for the ninth and was scheduled to be examined by doctors Tuesday.
    TV: 7:05 p.m. ET, SNY (New York), MASN2 (Washington)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Mets RH Jacob deGrom (2014: 9-6, 2.69 ERA) vs. Nationals RH Jordan Zimmermann (14-5, 2.66)
    After going 1-5 with a 3.77 ERA through his first 10 starts, deGrom sparkled down the stretch, posting a 1.90 ERA in his final 12 outings. He ranked sixth among National League pitchers with at least 140 innings pitched with 9.24 strikeouts per nine innings. The 26-year-old, who went 4-0 with a 2.08 ERA in a solid Grapefruit League showing, allowed three runs in six innings in his only meeting with Washington in 2014.
    After leading the NL in wins (19) in 2013, Zimmermann posted a career-best 2.66 ERA last year, topping the Senior Circuit with 1.307 walks per nine innings. He was spectacular against the Mets, going 3-0 with a 2.13 ERA in four encounters, the last two of which saw Zimmermann toss a total of 13 innings without allowing an earned run. The two-time All-Star won his final eight decisions and the Nationals were victorious in each of his last 11 starts in 2014.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Mets 2B Daniel Murphy is a career .320 hitter with three homers and five doubles against Zimmermann.
    2. Including the 2014 postseason, Harper has five homers in his last 10 games.
    3. New York RHP Matt Harvey will make his much-anticipated return from Tommy John surgery Thursday in the series finale opposite Washington's Stephen Strasburg.
    TRENDS
    Mets are 9-3 in their last 12 road games.
    Mets are 7-3 in their last 10 overall.

    Preview: Red Sox at Phillies
    GAME: Boston Red Sox (1-0) at Philadelphia Phillies (0-1)
    DATE/TIME: Wednesday, April 08 - 7:05 PM EST
    WHERE: Citizens Bank Park, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
    LINE: -148, 136 TOTAL: 8
    Hanley Ramirez indirectly helped Boston win the 2007 World Series, but if the Red Sox this season are to win their fourth title in 12 years, it will likely involve a major contribution from their left fielder. Ramirez belted two home runs and drove in five runs in Monday's 8-0 season-opening victory and tries to keep impressing his new and old employer when the Red Sox visit the Philadelphia Phillies on Wednesday in the middle contest of their three-game series.
    Ramirez was a hot prospect in the Boston organization when he was traded to Florida on Thanksgiving Day 2005 in a blockbuster deal involving right-hander Josh Beckett, a key figure when the Red Sox won the World Series two seasons later. Fast forward 10 years, and Ramirez - a 31-year-old converted shortstop - finds himself in the cleanup spot of a lineup which is expected to have little trouble scoring runs. The same cannot be said for Philadelphia, which mustered only three hits Monday and appears destined for its third straight losing season after finishing .500 or better in the previous 10 years. Rick Porcello makes his Red Sox debut after going 76-63 with Detroit in his first six major-league seasons and opposes Aaron Harang, who dealt with back issues in spring training.
    TV: 7:05 p.m. ET, ESPN2, NESN (Boston), TCN (Philadelphia)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Red Sox RH Rick Porcello (2014: 15-13, 3.43 ERA) vs. Phillies RH Aaron Harang (2014: 12-12, 3.57)
    Boston made it clear that Porcello is also in its future plans by signing him Monday to a four-year contract extension, which begins in 2016 and is worth a handsome $82.5 million. The 26-year-old New Jersey native had an excellent spring, allowing four earned runs and striking out 11 in 14 innings covering four outings. Porcello is 11-6 with a 4.49 ERA in 24 interleague outings, including a 12-4 victory over Philadelphia on July 28, 2013 when he yielded three runs in six innings as a member of the Detroit Tigers.
    Harang, who allowed eight earned runs and 19 hits in 15 innings over four spring starts, begins his 14th major league season with his eighth team. The 6-7, 261-pound Californian made 33 starts with Atlanta last season while lowering his career ERA to 4.21 after going 5-12 in 26 turns with Seattle and the New York Mets in 2013. Harang is 14-12 with a 3.09 ERA in 36 interleague outings, including 2-2, 5.08 in five turns covering 28 1/3 innings against the Red Sox.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Ramirez is 10-for-29 with five home runs against Harang.
    2. Boston on Monday hit five home runs - including two by Dustin Pedroia - after not hitting five or more in a game last season.
    3. CF Odubel Herrera on Monday went 0-for-4 with two strikeouts while becoming the second rookie to make the Phillies Opening Day roster since 1970 (Freddy Galvis in 2012), when Larry Bowa and Denny Boyle broke camp with the team.

    Red Sox are 8-17 in their last 25 during game 2 of a series.
    Red Sox are 2-6 in their last 8 games following a win.
    Red Sox are 1-5 in their last 6 games as a favorite.

    Preview: Orioles at Rays
    GAME: Baltimore Orioles (2-0) at Tampa Bay Rays (0-2)

    WHERE: Tropicana Field, St. Petersburg, Florida
    LINE: 125, -135 TOTAL: 7
    The Baltimore Orioles have opened defense of their American League East title by scoring six runs in consecutive victories at Tampa Bay, and Steve Pearce is leading the way offensively. The Orioles aim for a series sweep of the Rays on Wednesday after Pearce continued terrorizing Tampa Bay pitching, homering for the second consecutive game in Tuesday’s 6-5 triumph.
    Pearce has slugged eight of his 40 career homers against the Rays, who have surrendered four homers in 18 innings. Baltimore’s Chris Davis made his season debut after completing a 25-game suspension for using Adderall without a league- exemption, going hitless in three at-bats. Kevin Kiermaier has three of Tampa Bay’s 13 hits through two games after homering and driving in two runs Tuesday. The Rays have struck out 19 times in the series.
    TV: 7:10 p.m. ET, MASN (Baltimore), Sun Sports (Tampa Bay)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Orioles RH Miguel Gonzalez (2014: 10-9, 3.23 ERA) vs. Rays RH Jake Odorizzi (2014: 11-13, 4.13)
    Gonzalez pitched well down the stretch for Baltimore last season, going 6-4 with a 2.19 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP in his final 11 starts. The 30-year-old, who makes his 70th career start, allowed the fifth-most homers in the American League (25) in 2014. Gonzalez went 2-0 in three starts against Tampa Bay last season, winning his only start at Tropicana Field despite allowing four runs on eight hits in five innings.
    The Rays scored two runs or less in 11 of Odorizzi’s 31 starts last season, and the 25-year-old posted a 7.27 ERA in the 10 games where Tampa Bay scored three-to-five runs. Odorizzi overcame a shaky April (1-3, 6.85 ERA) to win six times with a 3.00 ERA in his next 16 starts. He went 0-2 with a 6.52 ERA against Baltimore in 2014, surrendering five homers in 19 1/3 innings.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. One night after collecting three hits in his Baltimore debut, Travis Snider walked three times and added a single, run scored and RBI.
    2. Gonzalez is 3-1 in five road starts against the Rays with a 2.64 ERA.
    3. Tampa Bay DH John Jaso did not play Tuesday after leaving Monday’s opener with a bruised left wrist.

    Preview: Blue Jays at Yankees
    GAME: Toronto Blue Jays (1-0) at New York Yankees (0-1)
    DATE/TIME: Wednesday, April 08 - 7:05 PM EST
    WHERE: Yankee Stadium, Bronx, New York
    LINE: 118, -128 TOTAL: 7.5
    After one of its young hurlers shined in an Opening Day win at Yankee Stadium, Toronto turns to one of its veterans in the continuation of a three-game series with New York on Wednesday. The Blue Jays, who had lost 29 of their previous 34 games in the Bronx before this set, rode solid six innings from 24-year-old Drew Hutchison and a two-run homer by Edwin Encarnacion to a 6-1 victory in the opener Monday.
    Knuckleballer R.A. Dickey, 16 years Hutchison's elder, gets the nod as he looks to build upon back-to-back 14-13 seasons since joining the Blue Jays. While their offensive attack was limited to Brett Gardner's solo home run in Monday's loss, the Yankees also saw starter Masahiro Tanaka struggle in four innings as he attempts to ease concerns over a balky elbow. If Tanaka continues to sputter, it is imperative that Wednesday's starter, Michael Pineda, has a full, successful season. The big right-hander lost two full years to injury and missed more than three months of 2014 with a shoulder issue.
    TV: 7:05 p.m. ET, SNET (Toronto), YES (New York)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Blue Jays RH R.A. Dickey (2014: 14-13, 3.71 ERA) vs. Yankees RH Michael Pineda (2014: 5-5, 1.89)
    The durable Dickey has led or tied for his league's lead in starts in each of the past three seasons and has thrown at least 208 2/3 innings in four straight years, leaving him one out away from 1,500 for his career. He blanked the Yankees over six innings at home last April 5 before allowing two runs in six frames at Yankee Stadium on Sept. 18, part of a solid stretch run in which he went 4-1 with a 2.35 ERA over seven outings. Dickey let up two earned runs in 12 innings during spring training.
    Pineda posted a 1.91 ERA in nine starts after returning from his shoulder issues last season, striking out 44 and walking just four in the process. Included in that run was a loss in Toronto in which he gave up two runs in six innings but received zero run support. The 26-year-old, who is 1-2 with a 4.11 ERA in five career starts against the Blue Jays, was 2-0 with a 1.42 mark in five dominant Grapefruit League outings.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Ten of Gardner's 41 career home runs have come against Toronto.
    2. Blue Jays rookie 2B Devon Travis hit a solo home run and drew two walks in his major league debut Monday.
    3. Yankees 3B/DH Alex Rodriguez, who was 1-for-2 with a walk Monday in his return from a one-year suspension, is 8-for-22 with a home run against Dickey.

    Blue Jays are 6-2 in their last 8 overall.

    WHERE: Great American Ball Park, Cincinnati, Ohio
    LINE: -121, 112 TOTAL: 7
    Although Gerrit Cole is only 24 years old and has yet to play a full season in the majors, he has already established himself as a stopper for the Pittsburgh Pirates. The young right-hander will attempt to live up to that reputation on Wednesday when the Pirates try to avoid their first 0-2 start to a season since 2006 against the host Cincinnati Reds.
    Cole, who made 19 starts as a rookie in 2013 and 22 more last year while battling lat and shoulder injuries, has compiled a 21-12 record and 3.45 ERA in his short career. The No. 1 overall pick of the 2011 draft has typically done his best work when his team has needed a boost, picking up 11 of his victories following a Pittsburgh loss. The Pirates, who fell 5-2 to the Reds on Opening Day, will have their work cut out for them in Cole’s season debut as he will be paired opposite Mike Leake, who is 5-0 with a 3.42 ERA in his previous 13 outings against Pittsburgh. The Pirates will also have to solve Todd Frazier, who hit the tiebreaking homer in Monday’s win after batting .300 with seven home runs against them last season.
    TV: 7:10 p.m. ET, ROOT (Pittsburgh), FSN Ohio (Cincinnati)
    PITCHING MATCHUP: Pirates RH Gerrit Cole (2014: 11-5, 3.65 ERA) vs. Reds RH Mike Leake (2014: 11-13, 3.70)
    Cole progressed as last season wore on, going 4-1 in eight turns after the All-Star break while lowering his walks and striking out more than a batter per inning in the second half of the season. The UCLA product, who made two trips to the disabled list in 2014, went 1-0 in five spring outings but uncharacteristically yielded three homers. Cole made both of his career starts versus the Reds last season, posting an 0-1 record and 4.15 ERA.
    After recording the best strikeout rate of his career (6.89 per nine innings), Leake may be poised for a stellar contract year after going 2-1 with a 1.35 ERA in five exhibition turns. The 27-year-old suffered through a rough September, although he allowed only one run on three hits and struck out eight over seven innings against Pittsburgh in his final start of last season. Leake settled for four no-decisions in five 2014 outings versus the Pirates, getting a win at home against them on April 15.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Pittsburgh CF Andrew McCutchen has hit safely in each of his last 11 contests at Great American Ball Park, but is batting only .259 in 54 career at-bats versus Leake.
    2. Monday was the first of 22 consecutive games for the Reds inside the National League Central.
    3. Cole matched his career high with 12 strikeouts in his final start of the season last September against Cincinnati.

    It is just two games, but the Atlanta Braves could not have scripted a better start to their rebuilding campaign. The Braves, who opened this season with only six players on their 25-man roster who were on the team for the 2014 season opener, are 2-0 and send newly acquired Shelby Miller to the mound Wednesday in Miami looking for a three-game sweep after Tuesday’s 12-2 victory.
    The Marlins hope starter Tom Koehler can provide stability after Mat Latos did not make it out of the first inning Tuesday, allowing seven runs in his Miami debut. The Marlins have scored only three runs in the first two games. Atlanta’s revamped offense used three doubles, three singles and two walks in the opening frame Tuesday. The top four hitters in the Braves’ lineup – Eric Young Jr., Jace Peterson, Nick Markakis and Freddie Freeman – are 10-for-31 through two games with eight runs scored and seven RBIs.

    PITCHING MATCHUP: Braves RH Shelby Miller (2014: 10-9, 3.74 ERA) vs. Marlins RH Tom Koehler (2014: 10-10, 3.81)
    The 24-year-old Miller played a key role in the Cardinals reaching the NLCS last season, one season after finishing third in National League Rookie of the Year voting. Miller finished sixth in the NL in wins in 2013 and 10th in ERA, and rebounded after a sluggish first half last season to go 3-1 with a 2.92 ERA in his final 13 games. Miller is 0-1 lifetime against Miami in two career starts with a 6.97 ERA.
    Koehler solidified his spot in Miami’s rotation in his second full major-league season, making 32 starts and allowing two earned runs or less in nine of his final 14 appearances. The 28-year-old struggled in his final three spring starts, giving up 14 earned runs in 14 innings. Koehler recorded a 2.77 ERA in four starts against Atlanta in 2014 but went 0-1 with three no-decisions.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Koehler posted a 3.00 ERA in 15 home starts last season and a 4.63 ERA in 17 road starts.
    2. Markakis is 3-for-8 with two runs scored and three RBIs in his first two games with the Braves.
    3. Miami RF Giancarlo Stanton walked three times Tuesday; he is 1-for-5 through two games.

    The Kansas City Royals look to stay hot with the bats after an impressive opener when they host the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday in the second of a three-game series. The defending American League champion Royals, who were last in the majors in home runs last season, had a pair of blasts and totaled 13 hits in a 10-1 rout of the White Sox on Monday.
    The Royals made two key additions to the lineup in the offseason and both came through as Alex Rios hit a three-run homer while Kendrys Morales had a double and scored twice. Jose Quintana gets a chance to cool off the Kansas City offense against Danny Duffy, who could be ready for a breakout season. Jose Abreu, the 2014 AL Rookie of the Year, picked up where he left off with a homer for Chicago’s only run Monday. Chicago designated hitter Adam LaRoche told reporters, “The key is to shake that one off and come right out Wednesday ready to go.”
    TV: 8:10 p.m. ET, WGN (Chicago), FSN Kansas City
    PITCHING MATCHUP: White Sox LH Jose Quintana (2014: 9-11, 3.32 ERA) vs. Royals LH Danny Duffy (2014: 9-12, 2.53)
    Quintana matched his career high with nine wins and pitched at least 200 innings for the second straight season in 2014 while struggling against the Royals. The 26-year-old Colombian did not lose more than one game against anyone else last season, but went 0-3 versus Kansas City (0-6 career) with a 4.88 ERA in four starts. Mike Moustakas and Salvador Perez are both batting .333 with two home runs against Quintana, who won three of his final four decisions last year.
    Duffy pitched much better than his record indicated last season as he held opponents to a .209 batting average and recorded a career-high 149 1/3 innings. The 26-year-old from California went 4-2 combined in August and September in 2014, but will aim to lower his walk total after issuing 53 overall. Abreu went 2-of-4 with a home run against Duffy last season, when the 6-3 hurler went 1-1 with a 4.00 ERA in two starts versus the White Sox.

    Preview: Rockies at Brewers
    GAME: Colorado Rockies (2-0) at Milwaukee Brewers (0-2)
    DATE/TIME: Wednesday, April 08 - 8:10 PM EST
    WHERE: Miller Park, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
    LINE: 138, -150 TOTAL: 8.5
    The Colorado Rockies' season is off to a promising start, although the same cannot be said for the Milwaukee Brewers. The Rockies have outscored the Brewers 15-2 in the first two games of their season-opening series in Milwaukee and will aim for a three-game sweep Wednesday evening.
    Colorado cruised to a 10-0 victory in Monday's opener and rode that momentum to a 5-2 triumph on Tuesday behind a 12-hit attack that supported six strong innings from Jordan Lyles. Milwaukee has a total of 14 hits and also has committed four errors in two games, not to mention the disappointment of losing slugger Ryan Braun (rib cage) on Opening Day. Braun is expected to return to the lineup Wednesday, when Jonathan Lucroy - the fourth-place finisher in NL MVP voting in 2014 - will be seeking to snap out of an early 0-for-8 skid.

    PITCHING MATCHUP: Rockies RH Eddie Butler (2014: 1-1, 6.75 ERA) vs. Brewers RH Wily Peralta (2014: 17-11, 3.53)
    Butler was limited to three starts last season due to arm and shoulder injuries and was generally unimpressive in his limited major league action. The 24-year-old walked seven batters in 16 innings and struck out only three, allowing opponents to bat .343 against him. Butler, who battled some shoulder fatigue late in spring training, will be facing the Brewers for the first time.
    Peralta is coming off the best season of his career and hopes to get off to a similar start as last April, when he went 3-1 with a 2.56 ERA. He faced Colorado in back-to-back starts last June and gave up four runs in each outing, working 7 2/3 innings and six innings, respectively. Corey Dickerson and Justin Morneau each went 4-for-7 with two runs scored against Peralta last season.
    WALK-OFFS
    1. Colorado SS Troy Tulowitzki is 5-for-10 with four runs scored and two RBIs on the young season.
    2. The Rockies' bullpen - among the worst in the majors in 2014 - has yet to allow a run, giving up a combined two hits in five innings.
    3. Milwaukee 1B Adam Lind has been one of the team's few bright spots this week, starting 4-for-7 with a walk.
