Morning Read: So Matt Manning had a decent MLB debut! Facing the Los Angeles Angels he pitched five innings allowing two runs and striking out three. Before getting into some stats, I am impressed by this line alone. The Angels are a very tough offense to face and he handled them pretty well. With that said he threw his four-seam 69% of the time and it didn't induce a ton of whiffs but did paint the corners a few times. His slider, changeup, and curveball all induced just one whiff. We need to see another start before making any assumptions. Overall, I wouldn't be running to add him and if I had him I wouldn't be dropping him either.
Today's Streamer: We discussed Zach Davies in yesterday's live stream so I will summarize here. Davies has been going nuts the last month and a half putting up a sub-two ERA. Yes, sub-two. Sure the strikeouts won't be there but you can't deny his stellar ratios. He gets the Marlins in this start and they have cooled off a bit so all in all this seems like a good option.
