Right-hander Mike Pelfrey (2-5, 3.81 ERA, 1.33 WHIP) takes the hill for the White Sox after throwing a perfect inning of relief against the Orioles on Wednesday. Pelfrey struggled in his last start, allowing two earned runs on six hits and five walks with two strikeouts in 3 2/3 innings to get a no-decision in a 10-7 win against the Orioles last Monday and he's just 1-3 with a 4.50 ERA in five road starts.        

The Blue Jays will go with Marcus Stroman (7-2, 3.09 ERA, 1.27 WHIP), who dominated the Mariners over seven innings last Saturday, giving up one earned run on six hits and no walks with six strikeouts in a 4-2 win. It was Stroman's third straight quality start and ninth in 13 starts tho season. Stroman is 6-0 with a 2.77 ERA and 53 strikeouts over 61 2/3 innings in his last 10 starts and he's in the top 10 in the American League in wins, innings pitched, ERA and complete games. I'm taking Stroman and the Blue Jays at -220 MLB odds here.

Dodgers vs. Reds

Hyun-Jin Ryu (2-6, 4.42 ERA, 1.35 WHIP) will start for the Dodgers after allowing eight earned runs in 11 innings over his last two starts. Ryu is winless since May 18 and he gave up four earned runs on six hits and no walks with five strikeouts over four innings to get a no-decision in a 9-7 loss against the Reds last Sunday. 

Asher Wojciechowski will make his sixth appearance (fourth start) for the Reds. The right-hander got a no-decision against the Dodgers on Saturday, when he gave up four earned runs on six hits (one home run) and no walks with one strikeout over five innings. Ryu is just 0-4 with a 4.62 ERA in five road starts and the current Dodgers lineup is 6-for-19 (.316) against Wojciechowski. Still, the total is so high that I'll take a contrarian approach and bet 'Under' 10.5 (-105) with my MLB picks.  

Free MLB Pick: Under 10.5 (-105)
