Dream11 Fantasy Baseball: Orioles at Nationals

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Baseball series.

Baltimore Orioles (5-7) at Washington Nationals (4-5)

Friday, August 7th, 6:05 PM EDT

Projected Starters

LHP Tommy Milone (0-1, 5.63 ERA) vs TBD (RHP Anibal Sanchez, 0-1, 7.20 ERA expected)

Game Preview

The Nationals have not announced who will be their starter for Friday's contest against the Orioles, although Anibal Sanchez is expected to get the nod – he struggled in his previous outing, allowing four earned runs – all of them via home runs – in five innings against the Toronto Blue Jays on July 27. Meanwhile, Baltimore have already announced the nod will go to lefty Tommy Milone. The veteran lefty struggled in Opening Day, but he bounced back admirably with eight strikeouts against the Tampa Bay Rays in his previous start. Either way, the Orioles have one of the weakest lineups in MLB ahead of this season, so the Nationals should be able to take full advantage of that with their strong offense led by Juan Soto and Trea Turner.
