Cleveland Indians vs Minnesota Twins Moneyline Pick – Pitchers
The Twins send righty Jose Berrios (7-2 W/L, 3.27 ERA, 1.13 WHIP) to the mound. Berrios throws an 82mph curve that offers little depth and is much harder than most other curves, as it elicits sweeping glove-side movement. He also throws an effective 93mph four-seam fastball while mixing in a change that has a slight arm-side fade and a 93mph sinker with an arm-side run. For the month of May, Berrios went 3-1-2. The Twins won both of those no-decisions. In each of his last two games, where he won one and got a no-decision in the other, he went 6.2 innings. In those two games, Berrios allowed four earned runs on 12 hits. He struck out 12 and walked three.
Cleveland right hander Trevor Bauer (4-5 W/L, 3.76 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) gets the start tonight. Overall, Bauer is a fastball pitcher. His four-seamer, which comes in at 94mph, results in more swings and misses than average. His hard, biting curve, which runs at 80mph, offers up more than the average number of grounders, while Bauer’s 85mph cutter, 87mph change, and 81mph sinker are all fairly effective. His cutter is especially heavy, sinking and causing a large number of whiffs. Bauer has not had a win since April 30 when he pitched seven innings and allowed four runs on four hits, striking out 10 and walking four. In May, he was 0-4-2 and the Indians were 0-5-1 over the course of those starts.
That same month, Bauer’s ERA jumped from 2.45 to 3.76. In his last two starts, Bauer allowed a total of 10 runs with just four being earned. In each game, he struck out eight and walked one while giving up a total of 13 hits.
