The Minnesota Twins and Chicago White Sox open a 3 game series tonight at Guaranteed Rate Field. The Twins are coming off a 5-2 loss to the Rays in 18 innings and Chicago was off on Thursday. 

Minnesota scored 2 runs in the first inning and then were held scoreless over the next 17. The Twins will definitely be at a disadvantage if this game goes to the bullpen early as they used 10 pitchers yesterday. 

The Twins bats were pretty quite, but one of the lone bright spots was Luis Arrarez going 3 for 7.

Jose Berrios (8-3, 2.84 ERA) is pitching for Minnesota and Chicago has still not decided on a starter. Berrios did exit his last start in the 8th inning with a blister problem. It is not expected to be an issue tonight. It is expected that the White Sox will promote a pitcher from Triple A Charlotte before the game. Odrisamer Despaigne was Designated for Assigment to open up the roster spot. Despaigne was 0-2 with a 9.45 ERA in 3 starts.

There is currently no line on the game due to Chicago not naming a starter.

Minnesota Twins

The Twins enter at 52-28 and are 26-14 on the road. Minnesota has won 4 of their last 6 and still hold an eight game lead over Cleveland in the AL Central.

Berrios has been the Twins best pitcher and could be headed for an all star appearance. The young righty has a 1.07 WHIP, and has made 6 straight quality starts. He has been very good against the Sox, with an 8-1 record and an ERA of 2.05 in 10 starts.

The Twins offense has been one of the best surprises in baseball. They have hit 149 homers and have a team OPS of .831. They could be without the services of Eddie Rosario, who leads the team in homers (20) and RBIs (60). Rosario sprained his left ankle on Wednesday.

Minnesota has Byron Buxton, Marwin Gonzalez, Ehire Adrianza, and Willians Astudillo on the 10-day IL. Rosario is listed as day-to-day.


Chicago White Sox

The White Sox are 37-41 and 20-17 at home. Chicago won their last game after losing 4 in a row.

We don't know much about Chicago's starting pitcher, but we do know it can't be much worse than Despaigne. Vegas won't release a line until we know the starter, so it could be mid-afternoon or later.

Chicago, like Minnesota, could be without a big bat, possible 2. Tim Anderson is doubtful with an ankle sprain, and Yoan Moncada had to leave Wednesday's game after being hit on the knee by a Chris Sale pitch. The White Sox haven't had much success against Berrios except James McCann.

McCann, who will probably be a back-up to Gary Sanchez in the all star game, is 5-11 with 2 homers. Jose Abreu, Leury Garcia and Yolmer Sanchez all have homers off of Berrios but none of them are batting over .225.

The White Sox have Dylan Covey on the IL. Anderson, Moncada and Charlie Tilson are all listed as day-to-day.

The Pick

It is a little difficult to make a pick without a line, but we will do our best. We are guessing this line comes in around -240 or so, and an over/under around 9.5. With Anderson and Moncada out, and Berrios on the mound, we really like the Twins. If this line is under -250 we are going with Minnesota. Berrios has had good success against Chicago, and we don't see that changing, especially with the White Sox not at 100%.
