Detroit has cooled a little bit of late but they are still in the race, certainly for the AL Wild Card. As such they can’t afford any slips against last place teams like Minnesota.
The Twins are hoping that their recent offensive surges portend to some level of success in the future but at the same time they need their pitching prospects to come through as well.
Detroit picked a bad time to go cold with series against Kansas City and Boston last week.
Justin Upton is finally starting to come around and it would be a shame to not parlay the production they have been waiting for all season into some wins.
The left side of the infield is thin though with both Nick Castellanos and Jose Iglesias injured. It is especially too bad about Castellanos as he was having a breakthrough season.
Daniel Norris has failed to live up to the expectations of when he was acquired in the David Price trade last season.
He has been in and out of the rotation but looks fixed for now.
In three August starts he has given up only 5 runs in 15 innings. He still gives up too many hits but seems to be able to get himself our of trouble.
Pitching only 5 innings per start is not helping the bullpen though.
Now that the pressure is completely off the Twins have been enjoying the fact that they seem to have an offense.
Brian Dozier has exploded up to 29 homers, already besting last year’s career high and Max Kepler is on a 30 homer pace for the season.
They are still not getting that much from Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton is back in the minors. Those are the guys they were hoping would lead them back to prosperity.
The Twins are hoping that Berrios can be the future of the pitching staff, unfortunately, similar to the hitters he is proving that he is definitely not ready yet.
Through 8 starts he has a terrible ERA of 9.28. In four of them he has not even reached the 5th inning.
Every once in a while you see the potential but their is nothing we have seen that makes you want to get behind this guy right now.

Free Detroit Tigers vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction:
The Tigers definitely have more to play for but with Norris on the mound they will mostly be leaning on their lineup. Not necessarily such a bad reason to get behind them given the Twins hurler.
Normally I like getting behind pitchers making their first tour through the league but Berrios has been bad so far, most nights he is not giving them much of a chance to win.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Detroit ML
I think the Tigers have to be the play here. Look for Norris to be just good enough to get them to victory though the total as long as it isn’t over 9 is probably a strong play too.
