Recently however, their form has shown some improvement, going 2-3 over their past five games against the spread and 368 runs scored on 694 hits for an offensive production rate of 2.39; their 4.09 ERA/WHIP stands out as their strongest suit with 1.27 being its benchmark value for pitchers. Jon Gray has had an uneven season so far with the Rangers starting pitcher Jon Gray having posted a 3-4 win-loss record and posting an 3.92 ERA and 1.33 WHIP; showing flashes of brilliance but struggling for consistency over 80.1 innings pitched that featured 85 hits, 71 strikeouts, 22 walks.

Jon Gray (3-4, 3.92 ERA) vs. Davis Daniel (1-1, 2.7 ERA)

Jon Gray‘s season has been one of ebb and flow, marked by both solid strikeout numbers as well as his susceptibility to giving up hits and homers. Through 80.1 innings pitched so far, Gray has amassed 71 strikeouts; yet 22 walks and 8 home runs allowed indicate potential control issues at times. Gray’s effectiveness against the Angels will depend on whether he can limit mistakes while remaining consistent during every outing he pitches.

Davis Daniel has been an unexpected highlight for the Angels this season. Though only pitching 13.1 innings so far, his numbers show promise with only 11 hits allowed and 1 walk issued while striking out 11 times and showing superior command and poise on the mound – something they will need against Rangers this weekend to give themselves a fighting chance to victory.
