I'm starting him. Could burn me sure, but are folks forgetting that he dominated them once already in Arlington? 7 IP 2 H, 0 ER, 0 BB, 5 K Plus he has been one of the best pitchers in MLB the past month. I think you can get too cute with matchups sometimes. And for me anyways...I'm wrong more often than not when I do that.
The metrics show that they will. He has an excellent 11.8% SwStr%, which is better than strikeout pitchers like Scherzer, Samardzija, Harvey, Verlander, Kershaw, Hernandez just to name a few. He also has a an excellent 37.8% O-Swing% which shows that hitters are swinging at a lot of pitches he throws outside the zone.
