Colorado Rockies

MLB Best Bets For Monday: More Division Rivalries

The Indians were involved in one of the biggest deals at the trade deadline when they sent Mike Clevinger to the San Diego Padres, but they’re still looking to win the American League Central as they are just a half-game out of first.

Zack Plesac will also pitch against the same team twice in a row; gave up just four hits and one run in his last start and picked up the victory against Kansas City.

Both these teams struggle offensively while the pitching matchup looks stellar, all the makings of a close, low scoring game.

Saying the Padres were buyers at the trade deadline would be an understatement; the team picked up Trevor Rosenthol, Mike Clevinger, Austin Nola, and Mitch Moreland as they are primed for a playoff push.

Dinelson Lamet has been San Diego’s most dependable starter as he began the season with six consecutive starts of allowing two runs or less.

The Rockies have struggled with pitching with the second worse ERA and the Padres score the most runs per game this season, it’s going to be a tough day for Colorado.
