Minnesota Twins (12-19) travel to Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan for an American League matchup against the Detroit Tigers (9-24). First-pitch will be thrown at 3:10 PM CT.
The Line: Minnesota Twins (-176) vs. Detroit Tigers (+162)
Twins are expected to send Starting RHP Jose Berrios to the mound this afternoon. Berrios has a 3.58 ERA, 42 K’s a 3-2 record and has only walked 9 batters this season! Berrios has excelled against Right Handed Batters this season. Holding RHB’s to an overall average of .209 OBP in 67 Plate Appearances. Detroit is projected to have only one Left Handed Batter in today’s lineup. Four RHB’s and four switch hitters to round out the order.
Berrios has played three away games this season. In those three games Berrios is holding opposing hitters to an .213 OBP and has yet to surrender a home run in an opponents ballpark. Detroit has been in a funk hitting the ball this year and their record says it all. They have a tall order to fill as Berrios is averaging 10.8 Strikeout’s per 9 innings on a game level in two away games this season.
Weather is expected to be mostly cloudy, a high of around 53 Degrees Fahrenheit, relatively low humidity at 38%, and wind blowing out toward center field. Rain is expected at 8 PM CT so we should have no issue getting this game in. However, the weather will be in our favor today.
Preston’s Player Prop: Jose Berrios OVER 6.5 Strikeouts (-134)
