Philadelphia Phillies vs Cleveland Guardians 7/22/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Philadelphia Phillies will meet with the Cleveland Guardians in MLB action in Progressive Field, OH, on Saturday, July 22, 2023, at 7:10 PM ET.


After a disappointing 4-3 homestand in which they dropped the final two matches of their series with the Brewers, the Philadelphia Phillies went to Cleveland.


The Phillies would be eligible for a wildcard slot if the season ended today, having passed the Marlins for second place in the NL East.


The Phillies lost game one against the Guardians on Friday night, 6-5, after falling 4-1 and never being able to catch up fully. J.T. Realmuto, the catcher, homered and scored two runs despite the defeat.


The Phillies will hand the ball to righty Zach Wheeler in game two of the series. Wheeler made 19 starts and is 7-4, including a team-best 11 quality starts. He tossed 111 innings and gave up 107 hits with an ERA of 4.04.


Wheeler’s season K/9 rate is 10.2, and his WHIP is 1.16. Wheeler has made nine starts on the road and won five. On the road, he pitched 51 innings and gave up 55 hits for an ERA of 4.06.


His K/9 rate increases slightly to 10.6, and his WHIP also increases marginally to 1.24. Wheeler’s previous three outings resulted in an ERA of 5.00 and 19 hits in 18 innings pitched.


The relievers for the Phillies appeared on the mound in 78 save opportunities and have a cumulative save percentage of 75.0%.


In the current season, the relievers have 113 base runners they inherited, and 36.3% of them scored a run for their club.


A total of 100 appearances in high-pressure situations and 76 occasions with runners on base were made by Phillies relief pitchers. This season, the Phillies used 314 different relievers. 


  • The total went OVER in 7 of Philadelphia’s last 10 matches.
  • The Philadelphia Phillies are 13-3 SU in their last 16 matches on the road.
  • The Phillies are 1-6 SU in their last 7 matches on the road against Cleveland.

Philadelphia Phillies vs Cleveland Guardians Predictions 7/22/2023


The Cleveland Guardians start the second half of the season in the AL Central Division rankings gazing up at the Minnesota Twins, much as in 2022.


They are two games under .500 going into this weekend’s series, but they are just two matches back of the Twins in first place in the division.


The Guardians just arrived home after a 2-4 road trip that saw them defeat the Pirates in Pittsburgh in two of the three games. The Guardians won 6-5 on Friday night against the Phillies, a much-needed victory.


Jose Ramirez contributed to the Guardians’ 13-hit offense by going 4-for-5 and scoring three times.


Tanner Bibee, a rookie right-hander for the Cleveland Guardians, will receive the ball on Saturday night. In 14 starts, including five strong ones, Bibee is 5-2. He tossed 76 innings and gave up 68 hits with an ERA of 3.32.


Bibee currently has a 9.1 K/9 rate and a 1.26 WHIP. In seven starts at home, Bibee is 3-1 with three strong starts. With a stellar 2.31 ERA, Bibee tossed 39 innings while allowing only 28 hits.


At home, he has a 9.0 K/9 rate and a 1.10 WHIP. Bibee has a 1.62 ERA in his past three outings with a 1-0 record. In that period, his K/9 rate increases to 10.3, and his WHIP drops to 1.14.


The Cleveland pitching staff has an ERA of 3.88 (371 earned runs allowed) and gave up 400 runs for the season. They allowed 97 home runs and 4.19 runs per nine innings, which ranks eighth in the league.


The Guardians have a staff FIP of 4.11 and a team FIP of 1.267 for the current campaign. The ratio of strikeouts to walks on this team is 8.00 (762 strikeouts to 294 walks).


With 796 total hits allowed, their pitching staff is presently ranked 16th in baseball.


  • The total went OVER in 5 of Cleveland’s last 5 matches.
  • The Cleveland Guardians are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matches at home.
  • The Guardians are 6-1 SU in their last 7 matches at home against Philadelphia.

Philadelphia Phillies vs Cleveland Guardians. The MLB pick for this game is the Cleveland Guardians.


Tanner Bibee, a rookie, emerged as the Guardians’ top defender this year, especially in light of the numerous injuries to Cleveland’s starting lineup.


Shane Bieber and Cal Quantrill are now absent from the squad. Therefore, Bibee’s recent work was excellent.


He threw for the Guardians consistently into late innings and had a record of 1-0 with a 1.62 ERA in his previous three starts. 


The Phillies will start veteran right-hander Wheeler in this game, who took some very big hits. Wheeler’s previous three outings resulted in no decisions, although his ERA is 5.00 throughout that span.


Wheeler also gave up more hits than innings thrown on the road this year, which is crucial for a Guardians club that lacks much power.


Cleveland triumphed in Bibee’s last three home starts and five of his seven overall outings. Expect the Guardians to win on Saturday night with the rookie on the hill. The Cleveland Guardians will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
