MLB Weekly Roundup- May 14

Texas Rangers vs. Oakland Athletics
The new MLB season is only a month and half old and the biggest story in the league revolves around the alarming rate at which pitchers are going down with elbow injuries. The latest casualty was Miami ace Jose Fernandez, who is now headed for Tommy John surgery. The Marlins had gotten off to a surprising 20-20 start, but this will be a major blow to their chances to compete in the crowded NL East race. Atlanta (22-16) currently leads Washington (20-19) by 2.5 games in that division.

Oakland Athletics

The hottest team in the Majors heading into Wednesday’s games is the Oakland Athletics in the AL West. They extended their current winning streak to six games with an 11-0 romp over the Chicago White Sox this past Tuesday as 189 home favorites on BetAnySports’ closing MLB betting odds. This past weekend the A’s swept Washington in three straight games by the combined score of 21-4. They are now 25-15 on the year and their return on the moneyline this season is the highest in the American League at +567.
