Jose Berrios averaged four earned runs in just under six innings in his last three starts before the break and his ERA nearly went up a run.
That’s a testament to how well he had pitched to that point but also a bit of a warning that he was tiring. He threw 58 innings last season and has already exceeded that in this one.
The Twins need not push their budding ace too hard.
Paul Molitor will be tempted though, in a pennant race with few other reliable arms. The Twins don’t have what it takes to truly compete this season and it might be for the best the earlier Molitor accepts it. This year will be a hell of an improvement from last.
The Stros faced Berrios back at the end of May when he was really doing his thing and they managed four in five innings. They would be happy to get four again, even in six.
Charlie Morton looked great in his return a week ago. He scattered four hits and two walks over six innings in his first start since the last week of May.
Morton probably came back a little late to dissuade Luhnow from making a deal but if/when he does add an arm and Morton continues to toss quality starts, the Astros are going to feel a little too rich.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Houston Astros MLB Prediction: both starters are great but at least one bullpen struggles.
A quality start for Berrios would be impressive and I think that’s what he does. Minnesota’s bullpen is at a disadvantage in this one, though, which is why I have Houston 2/3.
