Cubs starter Jason Hammel continues to cruise
Despite being listed third on the Chicago depth chart, RHP Jason Hammel (5-2 ERA 2.81) is enjoying the best season of his ten-year career. Hammel owns the seventh best WHIP mark (0.96) in the Majors and he has given up just 25 earned runs over 80.0 innings. Free passes have been few and far between in Hammel’s twelve starts as he has issued one walk per game to go along with 80 strikeouts.
Indians Danny Salazar looks to rebound from hard luck loss in Detorit
Listed fourth on the Cleveland depth chart, RHP Danny Salazar (6-2 ERA 3.54) heads to the hill for the Indians tonight.

Cleveland is 8-3 when Salazar pitches and Indians hitters have given him a ton of run support – winning by a 55-24 combined final count. During the three losses, Cleveland has been outscored by a 13-6 margin.
