Dream11 Fantasy Baseball: Mariners at Rangers

This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Baseball series.

Seattle Mariners (7-12) at Texas Rangers (7-9)

Projected Starters

RHP Taijuan Walker (1-2, 5.79 ERA) vs RHP Jordan Lyles (1-1, 5.56 ERA)

The Rangers will counter with Jordan Lyles, who has struggled during most of his career against Seattle. In six career outings, the veteran has gone 1-2 with a 4.78 ERA.
