Tampa Bay Rays at Baltimore Orioles Predictions

A postponement in my game earlier won’t keep us from having any action on this Saturday. Not when Glasnow is locked and loaded for another standout effort.

The 26-year-old began his meteoric rise last year — his first one with the Rays at the onset — as he did nothing but dazzle in his 12 starts. Glasnow actually was an early frontrunner for the American League Cy Young before being sidelined by injury, going 6-1 with a 1.78 ERA and a microscopic 0.89 WHIP. The electric right-hander also held opposing batters to a .186 average while registering 11.27 K/9.

It seems Glasnow has picked up where he left off after striking out nine in just four innings in his season debut. We’ll also benefit from the fact that Glasnow has handled this division foe well. In three career starts opposite the O’s, he’s 2-0 with a 1.50 ERA and 0.67 WHIP. Anything close to that would be gladly welcomed.

As for the other starter, LeBlanc fared just fine when he made his first start. With a signature overpowering Glasnow performance, LeBlanc doesn’t have to do too much and may be aided by the Rays hitting only .215 off southpaws thus far. LeBlanc can hang in there, and if Glasnow is able to do the rest, that’s all we need.
