Texas Rangers vs Philadelphia Phillies 5/3/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Texas Rangers will go against the Philadelphia Phillies in MLB action in Citizens Bank Park, PA, on Tuesday, May 3, 2022, at 6:45 PM ET. For his third appearance of the season, Rangers rookie right-hander Glenn Otto is slated to take the mound.

 

Last Wednesday, Otto gave up two runs in 4 1/3 innings against the Astros. Otto gave up a leadoff homer to Chas McCormick in the first inning, but he then shut down the Astros until the fifth inning, when he was pulled due to a one-out single.

 

As part of what evolved into a three-run inning, the inherited runner came around to score against Brett Martin.

 

Otto finished the game with five strikeouts. He pitched effectively in his Major League Baseball debut, although he is yet to reach the sixth inning.

 

Texas will want to keep their cards close to their chest with the youngster but expect them to give him more time to shine in this start against the Phillies. With a 10/3 K/BB ratio, he has a 2.89 ERA and 0.96 WHIP.

 

This year, Otto has been good for Texas, but the rest of the rotation was inconsistent. They have the fourth-highest team ERA (4.45) in the Majors and gave up the most home runs. They’re a youthful team, with Dane Dunning heading the rotation, but had a disastrous start.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 7 of Texas’ last 9 matches.
  • The Texas Rangers are 5-0 SU in their last 5 matches against Philadelphia.
  • Texas is 1-5 SU in their last 6 matches on the road against Philadelphia.

Texas Rangers vs Philadelphia Phillies Predictions 5/3/2022

 

Ranger Suarez will start the first game of this two-game series for the Phillies. In the Phillies’ 7-3 win over the Rockies on Wednesday, he gave three runs over six innings. Suarez’s line wasn’t pretty, as he gave up 7 hits and one walk while striking out just three batters.

 

In his first 18 13 innings this season, the left-hander only had 12 strikeouts. He tossed 97 pitches and pitched well for the first time this season. Throughout his first four starts, he battled with command but expected the lefty to improve. This is a decent matchup against a struggling Rangers squad.

 

Through their first 23 matches, Philadelphia had a great start at the plate. They have 25 home runs and are in the top 10 in runs, on-base percentage, and slugging percentage. Their issues sprung from the mound, as their starters are consistently shelled. They have a 4.10 team ERA and 1.26 WHIP while only giving up 18 home runs.

 

Kyle Gibson tops them with a 2-1 record and 2.93 ERA, but they’ll need more from Aaron Nola and Suarez if they hope to make the playoffs this year.

 

  • The total went OVER in 5 of Philadelphia’s previous 7 matches.
  • The Philadelphia Phillies are 5-2 SU in their previous 7 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 7 of Philadelphia’s last 10 matches against Texas.

Texas Rangers vs Philadelphia Phillies. The MLB pick for this game is the Texas Rangers. For his third start of the season, Rangers rookie right-hander Glenn Otto is slated to take the mound.

 

Last Wednesday, Otto gave up two runs in 4 1/3 innings against the Astros. He did not make it through the fifth inning in either of his first two appearances, but we believe the youngster’s ramp-up period is finished. He should make it until the sixth inning and throw a masterpiece if he doesn’t blow up early.

 

All of the runs he gave up last week were not his fault, and in his first start against the Athletics, he retired 11 straight hitters. Before being called up, the 26-year-old was dominant in Triple-A and will surprise Philadelphia on the road today.

 

Texas won five consecutive matches against the Phillies, as well as 14 of their previous 20 matches versus teams from the National League West. The Texas Rangers will win to a predicted score of 5-3.
