The MLB is back in action after the break as the Minnesota Twins will clash with the Chicago White Sox. The Twins will start this game with Jose Berrios. And on the other side, the White Sox will counter with Lucas Giolito.
Minnesota Twins Form
The Twins had a good season as they have won 101 games during the regular portion. Moreover, that was their 2nd best season in their history after the one in 1965 team when they went 102-60. Yet, they were not able to maintain that winning momentum in the playoffs as they were eliminated by the Yankees in the AL Division Series. As for their season, the Twins will be without Kyle Gibson and Michael Pineda. They have signed Rich Hill and Homer Bailey to help in the rotation. The Twins did add another veteran power bat as they signed Josh Donaldson as a free agent.
Jose Berrios will be the starting pitcher. He made 32 starts for Minnesota a season ago, going 14-8 with a 3.68 ERA, a 1.223 WHIP, 51 walks, and 195 strikeouts over 200.1 innings of action.
Chicago White Sox Form
The White Sox ended last season with a score of 72-89 which was the 3rd record in the AL Central. However, the team managed to get 72 wins for the first time since the 2016 season. Therefore, their aim will be to further improve this season. The White Sox added some veteran players to combine experience with the younger guys with the goal to improve this season. The Chicago side added Dallas Keuchel, Yasmani Grandal, Steve Cishek, Edwin Encarnacion, and Gio Gonzalez. They will be a great addition to promising players such as Yoan Moncada, Eloy Jimenez, and Luis Robert. Therefore, the White Sox have the potential to improve this season.
Lucas Giolito will get the nod in this game and he made 29 starts for the team last year, and his record was 14-9 with a 3.41 ERA, a 1.064 WHIP, 57 walks, and 228 strikeouts over 176.2 innings of work on the season.
The White Sox added some experienced veterans in their team this season. But their pitcher of choice for this game does not have a good record against the Twins. On the other side, the Twins had a strong offensive gore and that will be the difference in this game. Take the Twins this one.
