Rays’ Starting Pitching Options For AL Wild Card Game

Posted By Charles Mager On September 27, 2013 @ 3:12 PM In MLB | No Comments

TB Rays [1]Baseball’s regular season ends Sunday and barring any tiebreaker games — there’s a very real chance one will be needed to determine the second AL wild-card spot. The AL wild-card game follows on Wednesday.

With that in mind, let’s look ahead to see who is lined up to start the wild-card game.

Price (112 ERA+) and Cobb (138 ERA+) are Tampa Bay’s two best starters, so the decision who starts could come down to opponent. If the Rays are playing the lefty-heavy lineup of the Indians, Price could be the guy. If they get the righty-heavy Rangers, it figures to be Cobb. It won’t be Hellickson (74 ERA+) or Archer (119 ERA+) on short rest, that much is certain.
