Now 20 games into the 2019 MLB season, baseball fans start to get a better idea of exactly what each team is. There are a few surprises as well as some of the usual suspects atop the divisions as we head into the last full week in April.
If you need a quick refresher on how an MLB survivor pool works, click here for a simple rundown of how to play. And remember, we come out with weekly picks to try to help you stay alive as long as possible.
With that in mind, here are three survivor baseball picks for Week 4 of the MLB season.
3. Chicago White Sox
While the Chicago White Sox aren't exactly juggernauts, they do have a seemingly easy schedule this week. They play a three-game series with the Baltimore Orioles at Camden Yards, and then three more with the Detroit Tigers at home. The White Sox split a two-game set with Detroit earlier this season, but home-field advantage could give them the edge here. At least a of their six games split looks feasible this week.
2. Philadelphia Phillies
The Philadelphia Phillies are another team with what looks like a pretty easy schedule this week. The Phillies open up the week playing three at home against the New York Mets, who are without ace Jacob DeGrom. They also won't see Noah Syndergaard in the series as he pitched on Sunday against the Cardinals. While that's likely to be a tough series, the Phillies then get to play four games against the worst team in baseball, the Miami Marlins, at home.
1. Atlanta Braves
The Atlanta Braves are one of the better teams in MLB and they face two teams who are under .500 this week. The Braves will play a three-game series at the Cincinnati Reds, before returning home to face the Colorado Rockies. With the Reds and Rockies both struggling to start the 2019 season, Atlanta could dominate their slate of games this week.
