Philadelphia Phillies at Texas Rangers Free MLB Picks & Odds
by - 4/1/2014

Philadelphia Phillies pitcher Kyle Kendrick

Wednesday, April 2, 8:05 PM on ESP2, TCN, FSSW

Globe Life Park in Arlington, Arlington, Texas

Philadelphia - K. Kendrick (0-0) vs. Texas R. Ross Jr. (0-0)

Robbie Ross will be getting his first career start on Wednesday when the Texas Rangers host Kyle Kendrick and the Philadelphia Phillies. After two successful years as a reliever in the Rangers' bullpen, Robbie Ross will be hoping that he can use that experience to become a permanent starter in their rotation. Ross let a few more runs cross the plate last year than he did in his first season, but he also walked less and struck out more hitters. If he can keep the walks down and the strikeouts up, he should have a good season.

The only hitter on the Phillies who has more than one plate appearances against Ross is center fielder Ben Revere, who has one hit in three at-bats.

Kyle Kendrick had a down year in 2013, posting a 4.70 ERA and a 1.396 WHIP in 182 innings. Opposing offenses had over 10 hits per nine innings against him and he was only able to strike out 5.4 hitters per nine innings. He will definitely be looking to have a bounce-back year in 2014.

The player on the Rangers who has faced Kendrick the most is Shin-Soo Choo, who has two hits, which were both home runs, in 10 career plate appearances against the righty. Prince Fielder has faced him eight times in his career and has three hits, including one home run.
