The best in the AL takes on the worst in in the AL, in what should be a blowout at the Globe Life Park in Arlington.
While the Twins have made some nice finds of jettisoned players from other organizations, such as Robbie Grossman and Eduardo Nunez.
Unfortunately, these are the shining spots of a lineup that ranks in the bottom third of most major hitting categories. Brian Dozier leads the team with just 13 homers and 41 RBI on the year.
Kyle Gibson has a 4.82 ERA and a 1.43 WHIP on the year, which are pretty close to his career numbers.
Once a first round pick, Gibson is a now a mediocre MLB pitcher at best.
Hopefully the Twins’ drafting and development takes a turn for the better and top selection Byron Buxton and others turn into good MLB players, but the track record hasn’t been great.
Ian Desmond has been a revelation this season, currently hitting at a .320 clip with 15 HR, 54 RBI, .372 OBP and 108 total hits.
He is one back of Rougned Odor for the team lead in homers, but leads the AL-leading Rangers in all other major offensive categories.
Like Desmond, Cole Hamels leads the Rangers is the major categories for his position. Hamels has 9 wins, a 2.93 ERA and 105 strikeouts on the year to go along with a 1.28 WHIP.
He’ll be looking for redemption coming off of his worst start of the season, where he allowed 10 hits and 5 earned runs in 4 innings against the same Minnesota Twins.
