MLB Odds: Pannone Gets the Call Versus Orioles. Another pitcher will make his first MLB start this Wednesday when Thomas Pannone leads the Toronto Blue Jays (55-69, minus-12.51 betting units) against the last-place team in the majors, the Baltimore Orioles (37-87, minus-42.12 units). First pitch from Rogers Centre is at 12:37 PM ET on Sportsnet.
Pannone was a somewhat promising lefty in the Cleveland organization before coming to the Jays in the Joe Smith trade at last year’s deadline. After missing the first half of 2018 thanks to an 80-game PED suspension, the Rhode Island native has made four relief appearances for Toronto since his first big-league call-up on August 9, giving up two earned runs over 4.1 innings while striking out six.

David Hess (5.95 ERA) is due to pitch for the Orioles, who have been tanking aggressively since their season went off the rails in April. Baltimore is 2-10 behind Hess this year for a loss of 7.35 units; the northpaw from Tennessee is in his first season in the bigs, earning the No. 5 spot in the rotation after getting drafted in the fifth round by the Orioles back in 2014, and he’s allowed 3.88 walks and 2.08 home runs per nine innings thus far.
