At least for now, the Cleveland Indians have competition in the AL Central. The Tribe is even more than -300 to win the division in the futures market but the Tigers and Twins have gotten off to good starts to keep pace.
The Tigers’ pitching has been their strength in the early part of April but Matt Moore, after over 10 scoreless innings to start his season, has found himself on the shelf with a meniscus tear. He could be out a while.
His replacement will be Daniel Norris, the once highly-touted prospect who failed to win a starting rotation spot in Spring Training. He’s thrown just over five innings out of the bullpen this season, however, allowing five hits and three walks, compared to just two strikeouts.
The Twinkies lost on Wednesday and will get out of New York after splitting a two-game series with the Mets. After seven consecutive games on the road, Minnesota return to Target Field for just its second home series of the season.
Five Twins have at least two home runs entering Thursday, including Max Kepler, who leads the team with three.
Michael Pineda didn’t pitch at all in 2018, his first season in a two-year deal with Minnesota. So far in 2019, he’s looked ok. He earned his first win since 2017 last time out against the Phillies with five innings of two-run ball, striking out five and walking just one.
He gave up just one hit and a walk in four innings against Cleveland in his first start (40 pitches). Through two games and nine innings, he’s struck out 10 and walked just two, having given up five hits and just two runs.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction: under.
Maybe the reason Norris couldn’t win a starting job in Spring Training is that Detroit’s starting pitching is legit. It looks like it early. I’ll bet on Norris to step in and keep the line moving with four or five good innings before turning it over to the ‘pen.
