Clay Buchholz (3.09 FIP) is scheduled to start for Boston. He’s been all over the map this year. He has lost 3.96 betting units on a team record of 2-5. Buchholz did provide four quality starts. He also got knocked around in his other three appearances.

His strong FIP and his atypically high .393 BABIP suggest Buchholz may be a solid “buy low” candidate.

The Mariners respond with J.A. Happ (3.45 FIP). He has pitched very well through six starts with a team record of 4-2 and 1.43 units in earnings. This is Happ’s first year pitching at Safeco.

His improvement this season hasn’t come from friendly park factors alone. His walk rate, which is at a career-low 1.88 per nine innings.
