The Twins are rolling right now. They beat Houston on Monday behind Jake Odorizzi for their fourth win in a row. They are in first place in the AL Central.
With Michael Pineda set to go on Tuesday against Wade Miley, the Twins haven’t named a starter to face Justin Verlander in the finale on Wednesday.
After finishing up this series on the road, Minnesota returns home to face the Orioles and, again, the Astros. The Twins will likely finish April in first place in the division.
With the exception of former Astro, Marwin Gonzalez, who is off to a horrid start (.204, .271, .278), every regular in the Twins’ lineup has an OPS+ above league-average. The pitching has had some early successes but the offense has fueled the good start.
After catching Seattle rather quickly following the Mariners’ white-hot start, the Astros are back in second place in the AL West after losing a couple games in Texas over the weekend and the first one vs. Minnesota.
The ‘Stros lost the last two in Arlington, despite having big advantages in the starting pitching matchups. The bullpen has actually been pretty good with teh exception of Josh James, who has thrown the most innings out of the ‘pen but also given up three homers and seven earned runs, which equates to a 5.91 ERA.
Carlos Correa has a decent enough OPS+. It isn’t elite but it’s certainly above league-average. I’m still concerned about his power, though, which disappeared when he hurt his back last season and hasn’t fully returned. He’s hit just three home runs in about 75 at-bats so far this year.

I won’t lay the 1.5 in this one. Minnesota is hot and while I think the Astros win behind Verlander, the Twins won’t make it easy.
