The Texas Rangers face the Seattle Mariners on Tuesday, April 19th, 2022 at T-Mobile Park for game one of a three-game series.
The Texas Rangers own one of the worst records in the league at 2-7 and Texas enters this series on a three-game losing streak. The Rangers competed rather well with the Blue Jays in their opening series in Toronto, but the team has struggled in their last two sets with the Rockies and the Angels, both of which were at home. The Rangers are back on the road here and will look for something to turn the season around in this AL West rivalry series. Texas is hitting .240 as a team, but the team ERA is 6.19, making for one of the worst in the league thus far.
The Seattle Mariners took two games of a three-game series with their AL West rivals in the Houston Astros. The Mariners won the first and third games of the series, both by large margins. Seattle is now back to .500 at 5-5 overall this season and is 2-1 at home thus far. The Mariners' offense got going in the home series with the Astros, but on the year Seattle is still only hitting .215 as a team. The Mariners' team ERA is a strong 3.14, as yet again Seattle owns a strong bullpen and above-average starting rotation.
The Texas Rangers are projected to bring Jon Gray to the mound for this one. Gray is 0-0 with a 6.75 ERA after his first start of the year against the Blue Jays. Gray allowed three hits, three earned runs, and two walks in 4.0 innings of work in that start.
The Seattle Mariners are set to send left-hander and former AL Cy Young Robbie Ray to the mound for game one of this series. Ray had a quality start in his 2022 debut against Minnesota, but he was absolutely rocked by the White Sox in his next start. Ray allowed 10 hits, six earned runs, three home runs, and two walks in 6.1 innings against Chicago, and he will look to bounce back in his first home start of the season.
I think the value lies with the Rangers here, considering the Rangers have been fantastic against left-handed pitching this year. Texas as a team owns a top-5 OPS against southpaws so far this season, and that is enough for me to take the plus money with the underdog here.
