Matt Harvey is now the Red Knight. His fastball was topping out at 92 mph while a Met, but is now in the 94-to-96-mph range for the Reds. Harvey has allowed only four runs over his last 22 innings, and the Reds are 4-1 in in his last five starts. Ivan Nova's July ERA is 6.46, and he has allowed 24 hits over his last 15 innings. Cincinnati has played above-.500 baseball in the past six games.

The Orioles were the worst team in baseball before trading Manny Machado. Without him, they're 30 cents weaker compared to the average team. Baltimore is on pace to drop 117 games this season, but I think it will be over 120. Veteran starter J.A. Happ had a bad ending to the first half of the season. His name has been popping up in trade talks and may have affected his focus. He probably needed the All-Star break to regroup. Before his three-game July losing skid, the Jays were 11-4 in his previous 15 starts. The Orioles were 5-13 behind Andrew Cashner when they still had Machado.

The Indians have a shot to win 100 games and vie for home-field advantage against the Astros. Now that Cleveland has boosted its bullpen with Brad Hand, it has fortified its sole weakness. The Indians have a great rotation and one of the best offenses. In their first 27 games, they were outscored by one run; in the next 69, they're 38-31 with a plus-69 run differential -- and that was with the second-worst bullpen in the majors. Rangers starter Yovani Gallardo has allowed 21 runs in his last 28 innings. Gallardo, 32, has not posted an ERA under 5.50 in the last three years. The Indians should be -220 here.

White Sox starter Dylan Covey has an ERA of 2.74 at home and 7.90 on the road. Covey has been 20 cents better than the average pitcher at home but $1.20 less than the average pitcher on the road. St. Louis starter Miles Mikolas has a similar profile. He has an 1.65 ERA at home but has a 3.62 ERA with seven HRs allowed on the road. Take the value with the home underdog Tuesday.

Yankees starter Masahiro Tanaka returns after a month on the disabled list with a hamstring injury. Tanaka looked great in his Triple-A rehab start and has been mostly solid this year despite some liability giving up the home run. The Orioles have gone 14-3 Under in starts by Andrew Cashner, who has been strong against the Yankees. He has held them to four runs in the past 25 innings. Look for the Under to hit in this Tuesday matchup.
