#913 Colorado Rockies (Gray) + over Texas Rangers (Minor) 4:05 PM ET
Last night’s narrow win for the Rangers in this contest to open the season has pushed the favorite line 30 cents for the hosting Rangers, a number that could climb back by first pitch Saturday afternoon. Both offenses struggled last night with only three hits apiece as Texas plated the only run in the sixth inning, getting the only hit with runners in scoring position in the entire game. Colorado had more chances but struck out 14 times. Mike Minor had a strong season for the Rangers last year but he isn’t the strikeout pitcher that Lance Lynn is and his fly ball tendencies will carry greater risk against a still powerful Colorado lineup. Minor struggled with his command relative to his career totals with a 2.9 BB/9 last season and he’ll be making his debut in this ballpark like everyone else. Minor had an xFIP more than a run higher than his ERA as he is a prime AL regression candidate on the mound for 2020. Jon Gray has had an odd career over four-plus seasons, looking like one of the best young pitchers in the NL in 2016 and 2017 before greatly struggling and being sent to the minors in 2018. He rebounded last season even as the Rockies struggled and remains a high ceiling option with strikeout potential. He also became an over 50 percent groundball out pitcher last season and that should pay dividends in this matchup of powerful lineups. Colorado made just 22 relief pitches yesterday as the bullpen will be in great shape for the second game of this series while the Rangers needed three full innings plus 20+ pitch outings from its top two relievers to seal the one-run game. Both of these teams should greatly benefit from the playoff expansion as middle-of-the-pack squads that could rise into the field in the 16-team format. Expect another tight game Saturday but the pricing adjustment makes Colorado an attractive play in this pitching matchup.
