MLB Handicapping: Minnesota Twins call up top-rated pitching prospect

04.27.2016     08:16 AM     Printer Friendly
SportsMemo.com blog entry.
Rumor has it the Twins have a starting pitcher who can actually miss some bats. Following injuries to Ervin Santana and Kyle Gibson, Minnesota called up one of its highest rated prospects, Jose Berrios. Berrios, who is about to turn 22 years old, had a K-rate above 9 during stints at Double- and Triple-A last season. Here's a list of pitchers that received similar scouting grades to Berrios. He's slated to start tonight against Cleveland. The Twins went from +105 underdogs to -110 favorites.

Cleveland (Salazar) -145 at Minnesota (Milone) O/U 7.5
Recommendation: Cleveland


Tough spot here for the Twins who enter off of yesterday’s six hour, 16-inning loss at Washington. Minnesota’s offense was abysmal the last two games of the series posting a .151 BA, .233 OBP, .209 SLG% and worst of all 38 strikeouts in 83 plate appearances (45.8% K rate). That latter number won’t help much here versus Indians hard throwing RH Danny Salazar who has struck out 23 batters in his 18.1 innings of work thus far. While the opposing offenses in his three starts may not be elite MLB groups, Salazar has allowed only 14 total bases on eight hits (1HR) teams are hitting a collective .129 against him. The only sore spot for Salazar thus far is his base on balls nemesis which is almost 4.5 per 9 innings. While the Twins have been one of MLB’s worst hitting teams this month, they do have the eighth most walks with 66 so maybe they can capitalize on Salazar’s weakness. Salazar was 2-1 vs. Minnesota last year with a 0.89 WHIP and a 5:1 K-BB ratio (25 Ks, 5 BBs). Cleveland isn’t the only team with a pitching edge here since Read more

MLB Handicapper Free Betting Pick: Milwaukee Brewers at Minnesota Twins

Milwaukee (Anderson) +127 at Minnesota (Hughes) O/U 8.5
Recommendation: Milwaukee


Phil Hughes had a good year throwing at home last year posting a 9-3 record in 15 his starts with a 1.15 WHIP and 3.87 ERA. Despite those solid AL numbers, Hughes still allowed 15 HRs in those starts and only struck out 5.1 batters per nine innings but his .280 home BAbip was the difference maker. In his two seasons pitching for the Twins, that .297 home split was below his other three home/road splits which are incredibly consistent (2015 Away BABip .336 / 2014 Home .325 / Away .327). The point being that Hughes is the same pitcher he has always been and a little bit of luck led him to better 2015 home numbers. In his one home start thus far in 2016 his BABip was .353 and he was saddled with his first home loss of this season. Milwaukee’s lineup is no longer above average offensively but they are far better against righties this year (.235 BA vs RH / .171 vs. LH). Four of the six games where they’ve produced 12+ total bases have been against RH’s and four of the five games where they’ve scored 4+ runs have come against them. The Brewers figure Read more

Minnesota Twins
2015 W-L:
83-79
2015 O/U: 72-78-12
2015 Profits: +20.3 units
2016 O/U Wins (Westgate): 79.5
2016 AL Central Odds (Westgate):  6/1
Projected Starting Rotation: Phil Hughes, Ervin Santana, Kyle Gibson, Tommy Milone, Tyler Duffey
Key Departures: Jordan Schafer, Mike Pelfrey
Key Additions: Byung-ho Park

Handicapper's Take: "Minnesota was one of MLB's top profit producer last year at over +20 units of profit despite finishing four games over .500. This isn't a bad built ball club. There has been considerable effort to groom homegrown talent with Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton on the rise. And they got creative by inking first basemen/DH Byung-ho Park who showed plenty of power with a couple of 50+ home run seasons in South Korea. They've also committed to not overpaying for a stud starting pitcher but rather go to battle with a slew of middle-of-the rotation, pitch-to-contact strike throwers. It'll be a big boost Read more
