Miami has not gotten off to a good start. If the Mets are going to be down this season they could be in the mix for a Wild Card but don’t have enough to push the Nats.
Dan Straily has the best ERA on the staff and has been pretty good so far. I like his ability to miss bats even though the overall numbers are just OK.
If he keeps striking out more than a batter per inning and not giving up many homers he will ultimately get to the positive side of the win-loss ledger.
Tampa Bay Rays
Tampa took two games at Miami to get to .500 heading into Wednesday action. I think that is the ceiling for this team. It will be interesting to see if they decide to cash the Chris Archer chip at some point this season or not.
The pitching has been really good though so it might be too much to lose if they want to stay competitive.
He’s on a 14-3 run!
Matt Andriese is nothing special but he does not hurt you much either. Most games he gets his six innings of work and keeps you in the game.
He is definitely one of those guys that most investors might skip past but some situations will be interesting.
Tampa is 2-3 in his starts this season/

Miami has the better offense so you might even want to look at team totals. Their’s might be pretty low presenting another value opportunity.
