Two divisional rivals will meet Thursday for the 1st of a 4 game series at 8:10 ET.
So far, they have played 6 games against each other and each team has won 3 games.
Jean Carlos Mejia will go for the Indians and Jose Berrios will go for the Twins.
Overall, the Indians have had a solid season. They have lost 3 of their last 5 games.
With a record of 40-31, they are 2nd in the American League Central. The White Sox are only 2 games ahead of them.
Cleveland split a two game set against the Cubs in Chicago. Chicago won the most recent game 7-1.
Eli Morgan went 5 innings and allowed 4 earned runs on Tuesday.
Jean Carlos Mejia is in the rotation because of injuries. He has a 1-2 record with a 6.11 ERA. His last start came on Friday against the Pirates when Pittsburgh won 11-10. He went 5 innings and allowed 6 earned runs.
Pitching for this team has been decent this year. They are 15th in ERA with the number sitting at 4.15. Shane Bieber and Zach Plesac are currently injured. Not having those guys in the rotation have hurt them at times.
The offense has been good. They are scoring 4.31 runs per game which is 16th best.
Jose Ramirez is their best hitter and he is having another very impressive year.
The Tribe have hit 84 home runs which is 17th best.
The Twins have been one of the most disappointing teams in all of baseball. This squad was thought to be one of the best teams in the American League before the season started and they simply have not shown up yet. They have played a little better of late, winning 5 of their last 8 games.
Their record is 31-42 which puts them last in the American Central. The White Sox have a 12 game lead over them. I do not think anyone had them having the same record as the Tigers.
Minnesota split a 2 game series against the Reds. On Tuesday, Cincinnati won 10-7. The offense for the Twins was good in that series, scoring 14 runs.
Bailey Ober went 4.1 innings and gave up 4 earned runs on Tuesday.
Jose Berrios has been the best pitcher for their team this year. He is 7-2 with a 3.56 ERA. His last start came against the Rangers on Friday when the Twins won 7-5. He went 6 innings and gave up 3 earned runs.
Pitching has really hurt this team this year. They are 27th in the league with a 4.92 ERA.
The offense has been very good. They are ranked 11th scoring 4.62 runs per game.
This team is known for hitting lots of home runs. They are in 2nd with 107 of them hit.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:

Cleveland Indians vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
I look for the Twins to start off this series with a win.
The Indians are the better team this year, but I am not convinced they will win this one. They have only scored 10 runs in their last 4 games.
Minnesota should feel confident in this one. Berrios is the better pitcher by a wide margin. I look for him to pitch a strong game against the Indians. The Twins should be able to generate some offense against Mejia and get a win.
My final play is Twins on the moneyline.
