Johnny Cueto vs Chris Capuano

Clear. Winds blowing out to right field at 5-10 m.p.h. Game time temperature around 65.


All Star snub, Johnny Cueto will try to kick off the dust from his last outing when he allowed a season high four walks to the Giants. That start was Cueto's only game in the month of June in which he didn't go at least 7 innings. Still, his 2 earned runs over 6 innings was only a "disappointment" by Cueto-standards.

The Dodgers will counter with Chris Capuana, the team's 2nd best pitcher this season behind only Clayton Kershaw. Capuana seems to be enjoying the move to the NL West. The 33 year old lefty has been a league-average pitcher throughout his career (in fact his career ERA+ is exactly 100). This season however, Capuano is sporting a nifty 2.69 ERA. Most of his peripherals are in-line with his career norms, so his success is a bit of a mystery. His .253 BABIP (43 points below his career BABIP) is likely the culprit. Moving to the NL West and enjoying a bit of luck have Capuano on pace for the best season of his career.

Keep those fingers crossed that nothing is seriously wrong with Votto's knee...
