Today’s matchup is between the Los Angeles Angels (17-25) and the Texas Rangers (13-27). The Angels have won their last 5 games & the Rangers have lost their last 5 games.

The Angels are starting Julio Teheran (RHP) on the mound who is 0-2 in 6 games on the season pitching a 7.94 ERA, 7.47 FIP, .383 wOBA, K% of 12.8, BB% of 9.8, 87.8 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.59 WHIP in 22.2 innings pitched.

The Rangers are starting Kyle Cody (RHP), who is 0-1 in 4 appearances with a .00 ERA, 3.01 FIP, .192 wOBA, K% of 29.6, BB% of 18.5, 87.7 MPH average exit velocity & a 0.96 WHIP in 7.1 innings pitched.

The Angels are 11th best in the Majors in Relieving Pitching while the Rangers are 15th.

On the hitting side, the Angels have a .326 wOBA and a .333 OBP. The Rangers have a .279 wOBA & a .288 OBP. The Angels have 56 HRs this season while the Rangers have 30 HRs.

This is an interesting matchup with Julio Teheran of the Angels struggling and Kyle Cody of the Rangers had his first start but only played in three innings. The Angels are the better team but the upside in pitching lies with the Rangers should Kyle Cody be able to last more than 3 innings, With that said Kyle Cody has yet to play more than 3 innings so I'll assume he'll probably play around 4 innings. I'm going with The Angels on this one since the Rangers are the worst hitting team in the MLB so Julio Teheran likely won't be as much punished and this is new territory for Kyle Cody.
