*3 Star Play on Seattle ML* I like Zac Gallen a lot, but this price is out of control. I have to back the Mariners here. Justus Sheffield has been excellent in 4 of his last 5 starts.
Sheffield walks a lot of batters, but the DBacks get the third fewest walks against lefties of any team in the majors. Arizona ranks dead last in the majors in weighted on base average against lefties so far this year.
Gallen is likely to throw a good game as he usually does here, but the DBacks bullpen isn't any good. Additionally, Ketel Marte is on the injured list now, and he is the DBacks most consistent hitter.
Arizona is 4-18 in their last 22 games. Do we really think Arizona should be laying this kind of ridiculous price? Seattle has been playing quality baseball, and at this price they are more than worth the chance.
