The Minnesota Twins have not been the team we were expecting this past offseason, but they do get a solid opportunity to start turning their season around here when they take on the Detroit Tigers at Comerica Park in Detroit.
The Twins are coming off of 3 straight losses to the Rangers, and given where the Rangers are at right now that is not a great sign for the Twins, as that is a team we would be expecting them to beat when they are playing well.
They do still have some of the big hitters from last year like Byron Buxton who has been red-hot to start the season, and Nelson Cruz is still around slugging the ball around like he normally does.
The pitching has not been great, but it has not been so bad that they should be in the position that they are in right now, so it is tough to put your finger on exactly what is wrong with them at the moment.
Matt Shoemaker will take to the mound here for the Twins and he must be pretty relieved to be playing the Tigers here, as he has an ERA of 7.83 that he really would love to bring back down here against a bad Tigers batting lineup.
The Tigers appear to be who we though they were, as they were touted as a team who was firmly in the midst of a rebuild and they are looking like that coming into this game with a terrible record of 9-22.
The Tigers have actually got plenty of quality starts from their starting rotation, but it just has consistently not been enough, as this batting lineup is hitting .202 as a unit and have only managed to score 92 runs so far.
Tarik Skubal will be the starter here who comes into the game with an ERA of around 6 and a record of 0-4, but despite those numbers he has flashed some serious up side and is more than capable of putting the Tigers in a position to win here on Friday.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Detroit Tigers MLB Prediction:
I still believe that the Twins have to turn this around at some point and this is just such a good opportunity to back them, as they are undervalued by the markets right now.
The Twins have also struggled with runners in scoring position, and the numbers they are putting up right now are not sustainable and that will need to change at some point and this game against the Tigers seems like a good spot to start hitting in a more timely fashion.
