Jeff Samardzija was dominate in his debut with the A's Sunday as he held the Blue Jays to just one run on four hits and one walk with five strikeouts in the win.
The All-Star (even though he can not participate) shined in his first start with his new team. With the win Sunday he now has half the number of victories he was awarded in 17 starts as a member of the Cubs. His next start will be a must see TV matchup in Seattle on Friday opposite King Felix.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Matt Duffy went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run against Milwaukee on Tuesday.
Duffy has a five-game hit streak going and has homered twice in those five games. His .361 BABIP will tail off, but he could still hit .255-.260, which is about average in mixed leagues. The real question is whether he can keep hitting for power. His HR/FB rate won’t hold, but he’s also hitting very few fly balls so far. If he elevates the ball a bit more, he could continue to provide some pop. Analysis: Brett Talley
