Free MLB Baseball Picks – Braves vs Pirates Friday, April 19


The Atlanta Braves saw their 10-game winning MLB Baseball Picks streak end Wednesday afternoon as they lost to Kansas City 1-0. Freeman, on the disabled list with a strained oblique, will work out with Triple-A Gwinnett on Thursday and then play three games with the International League club over the weekend. If all goes well, he could be activated Monday at Colorado, tweets David O’Brien of the Atlanta JC.

MLB Baseball PicksFreeman was miffed when he was placed on the DL, so the injury may not have been all that serious to begin with.

Chris Johnson has made the bulk of the starts at first base in place of Freeman and is hitting .409. He figures to be the odd man out when Freeman returns, but maybe he could get some at-bats at third base at the expense of Juan Francisco.

Atlanta Braves @ Pittsburgh Pirates Friday, 7:05 PM ET. Atlanta’s pitching staff ranks first in the majors in runs scored, WHIP, and BAA, and while eight quality starts in 14 games is a big part of that the bullpen has been excellent as well. Tim Hudson is 2-0 with a 2.50 ERA through three starts, all of them wins for a Braves’ team that is firing on all cylinders during its fast start. WALK OFF A WINNER Bet on MLB $100 Free Bet.

Atlanta’s offense will face a tough test with Wandy Rodriguez on the mound for Friday’s season opener against the Pirates. Pittsburgh is 2-0 when Rodriquez starts, and he has allowed just one run through nine innings of work this year. This should be an excellent pitching matchup, but look for Rodriguez to give the Pirates the online sportsbook edge at home. Free MLB Baseball Picks: Pittsburgh Pirates – 130. Pirates are 4-0 in Rodriguezs last 4 starts after allowing 5 runs or more in their previous game. Pirates are 7-1 in their last 8 during game 2 of a series.
