Odorizzi pitched well in his last start against the Cincinnati Reds, picking up his second win and third quality start of the season. He managed to go six innings giving up one earned and five hits while striking out three and walking two. The lone run came off a solo home run to Scott Schebler.
The long ball (1.97 HR/9) has been damaging his stat line this year as even though he owns a very solid 87.7% LOB%, he has a 3.94. ERA and 5.28 xFIP. It’s not good now, but the home runs should slightly decrease as the more innings he accumulates since he owns a career HR/9 of 1.32.
Minnesota continues to play losing baseball as they have won just a single game out of seven in the last week. Their lineup’s sluggish start to the season has begun to wear off as they are slashing .265/.338/.462 to go along with 30 extra-base hits and 29 RBI in that span.
Chicago White Sox
Lopez managed to sneak away with the no-decision and kept his streak of two earned runs or less in tact against the Kansas City Royals. He went 6.1 innings giving up just two earned off of 10 hits while striking out two and walking zero. Giving up 10 hits for only two earned runs is pretty lucky, but giving up just two earned runs during a really off game is solid in my eyes.
It was good to see he didn’t issue a walk, but they are still something of concern as he owns a 25:15 strikeout-to-walk ratio. At some point his .232 BABIP is going to regress and when it does, his 86.2% LOB% and 1.78 ERA is going to take a hit and will fall more towards his 4.49 FIP.
In the last week, Chicago has managed to win three of their seven contests. Despite the small struggle, their lineup has been hitting well slashing .260/.315/.456 to go along with 25 extra-base hits and 32 RBI in that span.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Chicago White Sox MLB Prediction: Minnesota takes out Chicago with ease
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Twins -103
I figured with Lopez’s stat line, they’d be heavier favorites, but Vegas thinks otherwise. After giving up 10 hits in his last outing, this could finally be the outing where Lopez bends and breaks. Roll with the road dogs.
