Max Scherzer has allowed less than four hits in 10 of 14 starts and and struck out ten or more eight times, including five straight.

Alex Wood took a shutout into the eighth inning, making him the first Dodgers pitcher to make it to July 16 without a loss since 1985

Edwin Encarnacion is hitting .337 with nine home runs and 19 RBI since May 16

Zack Godley has a 2.44 ERA over seven starts this season and has not allowed more than three runs in any start.

Jerad Eickhoff :

  • Last Season 3.65 ERA, 197 ⅓ IP
  • This Season 6.46 ERA, 46 IP

Kevin Gausman

  • 6.60 ERA
  • 1.92 WHIP
  • 12.8 hits per nine innings
  • 10 or more runners on base in 9 of 15 starts

Jose Quintana entered yesterday with an average of 2.65 runs of support per outing. He also has the second lowest number of runs scored while on the mound since 2012, 3.84

Kyle Hendricks had a second MRI and now his return date is now being measured in weeks instead of days

Carlos Gonzalez is having the worst season of his ten year career, batting .215 with six home runs in 223 at bats.

George Springer wants nothing to do with the home run derby for the second straight season.

Still the same,I’m just not a fan of it. I don’t like it. I’m not a Home Run Derby guy. I’m not going to do it.Springer

  • Quality Starts = 3
  • 1.78 ERA
  • 1.07 WHIP
  • 24:8 K:BB

Hunter Renfroe set a Padres rookie record by hitting his 15th home run before the All-Star Break

Eric Thames:

  • April – 11 HR, 1.376 OPS
  • May – .221 AVG, 3 HR

Teams

The Blue Jays hit at least three home runs and lost by at least seven runs for the 11th time

The Dodgers beat the Reds six times in a row so far this season, and are 15-3 against Cincinnati since 2015

The Reds have lost seven straight

The Rockies have more wins in 70 games than they have in 25 years. They have not been in first place on June 17 since 2006 and rank second in baseball with a .629 win percentage

The Braves have lost seven of their past ten at Sun Trust, scored four runs or fewer in eight of the last nine, and have less than seven hits in each of their four consecutive home losses.

The Twins are in the midst of 35 games in 34 days heading into the All-Star break and they need pitching. They lead the American League Central by one game.

Opportunity. Someone is going to hopefully step up and get hot and realize there’s a need for more depth in the rotation in terms of competitiveness and consistency. If I was young and saw what was going on here and I was a starting pitcher, I’d be hungry. We talked about shaping up the rotation a couple weeks ago. I didn’t think at that point we’d be running the guys out there that we are, but there have been some injuries and different things. It’s reality.Paul Molitor

The Tigers have scored 13 or more times in six of 13 games in June

The Baltimore Orioles have a -54 run differential on the road and a -2 run differential at home

  • Loss 8 of 9
  • Loss 24 of 34
  • Run Differential = -56

Phillies’ starting pitchers have made it through seven innings 13 times in 65 starts.

Injury Updates

Cam Bedrosian is ready to be activated today, but it is unclear of the role he will play in the bullpen.

Bedrosian will pitch in the back end of our bullpen (I will) try to get his feet settled and get him an inning or two to get back into the major league flow, A lot of guys in our ’pen are pitching to their capabilities, which is one of the reasons we’re hovering around .500. Adding one more player with his upside is going to be a huge boost for us.Mike Scioscia
