Wednesday's streaking and slumping MLB starters

Apr 23, 2013 |
A phenom in New York and a wily veteran highlight Wednesday's streaking and slumping report to help you with your capping.

Streaking

Wandy Rodriguez, Pittsburgh Pirates (2-0, 0.56 ERA)

The veteran Rodriguez has a career 4.15 ERA in eight seasons, coming into this campaign. He has been throwing smoke as if he was 24 and not 34. Rodriguez has given up only one earned run and five hits in 16 innings pitched. The under is 3-0 in his starts.

Matt Harvey, New York Mets (4-0, 0.93 ERA)

The 24-year-old flame thrower has been one of the biggest revelations in baseball this season. He has given up three earned runs in four starts this season, with 32 strikeouts in 29 innings, and has walked only nine batters. The over is 3-1 in Harvey's starts due to the Mets offense. Harvey has gone at least seven innings in each of his starts.

Slumping

Brett Anderson, Oakland Athletics (1-3, 5.95 ERA)

Anderson has been roughed up for 11 earned runs in his past two starts. He lasted only one inning in his last start against Tampa after getting rocked for four runs and then left with a sprained ankle. He is expected to start Wednesday against the Red Sox.

Ian Kennedy, Arizona Diamondbacks (1-2, 5.47 ERA)

Kennedy hasn't won a start since Opening Day and has given up a home run in each of his last three trips to the bump. He also hasn't made it to the seventh inning since his first start.
