This article is part of our Dream11 Fantasy Baseball series.

Texas Rangers (13-23) at Seattle Mariners (15-22)

Friday, September 4th, 9:10 PM EDT

Projected Starters

RHP Kyle Cody (0-0, 0.00 ERA) vs LHP Yusei Kikuchi (1-2, 6.12 ERA)

On the other hand, Kyle Cody will be making his first MLB start for the Rangers, although he is coming off tossing 2.1 scoreless innings (and 39 pitches) against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
