Although the Astros are currently without ace Justin Verlander, a young aspiring pitcher has signed up to help the pitching team against the Rays on Sunday.
Right-handed Christian Javier follows a rookie season in the he went 5-2 with a 3.48 ERA with an even better second season. He is 3-0 and has only allowed two runs in four starts over 20 ² / ₃ innings this season.
The 24-year-old competes against the oldest active starting pitcher in the league, 41-year-old Rich Hill, who with a 7.25 ERA and five home runs abandoned in five starts, the opposite of light was off has a 1-1 record despite the fighting.
Usually the strength of the rays is their bullpen, but they have started in the league in Bullpen ERA on weekend 18 while the Astros are 13th. That makes the fact that Hill has made four innings or less in three of his five starts even more significant.
The Astros ranks third in the MLB in run-per-game on the road at 5.3 , and the Rays hit 28.7 percent of bats at home. This is the fourth highest odds in the league, so the Astros will exit Tampa Bay with a win.
