Logan Verrett, NYM (vs. ATL, @ CIN) – With the Mets embarrassment of riches in the pitching department, there is a chance that Verrett will only get one start. However, as of Sunday night, the word is that Verrett will fill-in for Jacob deGrom on Tuesday and possibly on Sunday. Verrett allowed only one earned run and struck out three in five innings of work.
Jhoulys Chacin, ARI (@ LAD, @ SD) – In three consecutive starts with the Diamondbacks, Chacin has allowed only two runs in each outing. He has also struck out 14 batters in that span.
Erik Johnson, CWS (@ DET, @ NYY) – In his three starts with the White Sox, Johnson has allowed no more than three earned runs in each game. Two of those three outings have been quality starts.
Thanks, but no thanks:
Jon Gray, COL (vs. PIT, vs. LAD) – Even though Gray has strung together back-to-back decent starts for the Rockies, he was on the road for both of those games. At home, Gray has a 7.88 ERA in 16 innings of work at Coors Field. Both of his starts this week are in Colorado.
Martin Perez, TEX (@ OAK, @ HOU) – This season, Perez is 0-4 with a 5.18 ERA on the road. Both of his starts in Week 24 are away from Arlington.
