Listen, the season is very young still, were only six games in as of writing. But the Twins are in first place in the AL Central, they’re also top 10 in hitting WAR, wRC and OBP. They also have the best ERA in the league at this point of the season, at 2.02, and are also top 10 in pitching WAR.
Hector Santiago is part of that success, pitching five strong innings in his last outing and allowing only one run and allowing only six baserunners.
Yet historically, Santiago profiles as a low strikeout, high walk kind of pitcher. He has been resilient over the years, pitching over 180 the past two years, but has developed a certain profile as a pitcher at this point in his career.
The Tigers are also playing well at this point of the season, going 4-2 in a division that many think the Cleveland Indians will dominate from wire to wire.
However if there is a team that will be in contention, the Tigers profile as the most likely choice. They still have some high level players scattered throughout the lineup, the question this season for the Tigers will be depth.
Part of that lack of depth is pitcher Matthew Boyd, he wasn’t great last year in limited action and in his first outing against the White Sox, he got blown up. Boyd allowed five earned runs over only 2.1 innings pitched, in which he walked four and gave up five hits.
He was about average in walk rate last year, so that can be expected to regress towards the mean, but has a tough start against a hot team on Thursday.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
Not a great pitching matchup and difficult to project, however I think that the Tigers have the stronger lineup and will expose Santiago in this outing and hang on for a win.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: OVER 8.5
Santiago is looking to repeat his last performance, while Boyd wants to forget his. Both pitchers historically have issues and I think it’s reasonable to expect some scoring in this game. Take the over.
