This is a 1* free play on the Oakland Athletics over the Cleveland Indians on Monday night (7:05 EST).
Jarrod Parker (1-4, 7.36 ERA) gets the call for the visitors. Parker is coming off his first win of the year, giving up six hits with three walks and four runs over six frames at home over the Angels on Tuesday. It was a much needed effort and Parker will now look to parlay that momentum into another big showing (remember, Parker finished 13-8 with a 3.47 ERA overall last year. He was 7-3 on the road with a 4.54 ERA). Parker will be opposed by Ubaldo Jimenez (1-2, 7.13 ERA), who after suffering through a brutal 2012 and start to the 2013 campaign, is coming off his best outing in quite a while, going seven shut-out frames vs. the soft-hitting Royals on Monday (remember, Jimenez was 4-12 with a deplorable 6.82 ERA at home last year). After yesterday's 5-4 winner over the Yankees, Oakland comes into this game a battle tested 8-6 on the road this year. Cleveland is 6-7 thus far in front of theme town crowd after yesterday's 4-2 loss to the Twins. While Jimenez looked decent in his last outing, I'm going to be cautious in reading too much into that start and believe Parker has the tools in place to build off his latest effort; great line value here. Consider a second look at the A's in this one.
