July 17, 2012 American League Pitching Matchups and Game Previews

July 17, 2012

The Yankees will get that much stronger on Tuesday when ace pitcher CC Sabathia returns from the disabled list to make his first start of the second half. He has usually had great success against Tuesday’s opponent, Toronto. Bet on Jays-Yankees and every game at

LA Angels at Detroit – Angels RHP Garrett Richards (2-1, 4.21) vs. Tigers RHP Jacob Turner (0-0, 1.80): Brad Mills was optioned to Triple-A following Friday’s game, so look for Richards to be recalled prior to Tuesday’s tilt with Detroit and start vs. the Tigers. He last pitched July 5, getting shelled for seven runs and 10 hits in 4.1 innings vs. Baltimore. … With Drew Smyly headed to the DL, Turner makes his second start of the year. The 21-year-old allowed one run on four hits and five walks in five innings in his previous start. He threw a shutout in his last game with Triple-A Toledo.

Toronto at NY Yankees – Jays LHP Brett Cecil (2-1, 6.75) vs. Yankees LHP CC Sabathia (9-3, 3.45): Cecil was roughed up for seven runs in 4 1/3 innings during his last start against the White Sox. Since being promoted from Double-A, Cecil has two quality starts in five outings. … Sabathia is scheduled to come off the disabled list and make his first start since June 24 vs. the Mets. The left-hander has been sidelined with a left groin strain. In his career vs. the Jays, Sabathia is 12-3 with a 3.16 ERA in 16 starts.

Chicago White Sox at Boston – White Sox RHP Philip Humber (3-4, 6.01) vs. Red Sox LHP Jon Lester (5-6, 4.49): Humber completed three Minor League rehab starts in testing his right elbow flexor strain. He is ready to make his first Major League appearance since June 16 when he beat the Dodgers. … On eight days’ rest, Lester looks to get back on track and improve on his worst first half as a starting pitcher, going 5-6 with a 4.49 ERA.

Cleveland at Tampa Bay – Indians RHP Josh Tomlin (5-5, 5.45) vs. Rays LHP Matt Moore (5-6, 4.42): In his last start before the break, Tomlin held the Rays to one run on two hits in seven innings for the win. It was his first start since April that he didn’t walk a batter. … After winning his five previous decisions, Moore had trouble finding the strike zone vs. the Indians on July 7. Just 54 of the 96 pitches he threw were strikes, leading to five walks and five runs in 4 2/3 innings en route to his sixth loss.

Baltimore at Minnesota – Orioles LHP Zach Britton (first start) vs. Twins RHP Samuel Deduno (0-0, 5.06): Britton will make his season debut for the Orioles, as the 24-year-old started the season on the DL and struggled in Triple-A after he was initially taken off rehab assignment. Britton has been better as of late. … Deduno had a solid game in his first Major League start against the Rangers on July 7, but he was troubled by the long ball. He allowed three runs on six hits in 5 1/3 innings, surrendering solo home runs to Adrian Beltre and Josh Hamilton.

Seattle at Kansas City – Mariners RHP Blake Beavan (3-6, 5.92) vs. Royals LHP Everett Teaford (1-3, 5.52): Mariners manager Eric Wedge doesn’t expect Erasmo Ramirez to be ready to return from the DL by Tuesday, opening the door for another player to join the rotation. Beavan had been scheduled to start Tuesday for Triple-A Tacoma. … Teaford didn’t last long his last time out against the Tigers. He pitched 4 1/3 innings, surrendering five runs on seven hits and a walk in the Royals’ 7-1 loss. For the second straight outing, he allowed two home runs

Texas at Oakland – Rangers RHP Roy Oswalt (2-1, 6.26) vs. A’s RHP Bartolo Colon (6-7, 3.80): Oswalt gave up one run on five hits in 5 2/3 innings during a 4-3 win over the Twins on June 8, lowering his ERA from 7.79 to 6.26. He’s 0-1 with a 5.40 ERA in two career starts against the A’s. … Colon looked strong again in his second start since returning from a strained right oblique, allowing one run in 8 2/3 innings against the Mariners. Out of the 93 pitches that the veteran threw, just 14 were balls.
