The bottom two teams in the AL Central division will face off as the Minnesota Twins travel to Kansas City to take on the Royals in a 3 games series starting Saturday night from Kauffman Stadium.
The Twins have taken a massive step back after winning the division last season, while the Royals started off the season strong but have been fading of late, as they come in on a 9 game losing streak.
Salvador Perez celebrated his All-Star selection with a home run as the Royals rallied from down 3 runs to win 7-4 on Friday night.
The Twins spent much of the spring looking a shell of the squad that ran away with the AL Central division last year.
The offense hasn’t been the problem as the Twins rank 11th in runs per game and are top 10 in batting average, hits per game, and home runs per game. Their pitching has been the bigger issue as they have the 26th best team ERA at 5.04.
Nelson Cruz remains one of the most intriguing players in baseball, as he continues to get better by year. He leads the team in all 5 offensive categories, as Cruz is hitting .310, with 18 home runs, 45 RBI, a .382 OBP, and 76 hits.
Kansas City Royals
Kansas City can’t be more glad to finally be back in Kauffman Stadium after a brutal road stretch. They went 1-9 in 10 away games which includes 9 straight losses. They dropped 2 of the 3 to the Yankees then followed that up by being swept by the Rangers and the Red Sox.
The Royals sit near the bottom of baseball in almost all of the offensive categories and their pitching hasn’t helped the cause either. Despite having the 10th best batting average Kansas City is 24th in scoring. Additionally, their team ERA is 28th at 5.06.
Injuries have led to struggles as well, with Andrew Benintendi out, along with both shortstops, Adalberto Mondesi and Emmanuel Rivera. In terms of pitchers they are down 4 relievers as well.
MLB Baseball Betting Trends:
- Twins are 33-47 overall
- Twins are 16-24 on the road
- Kansas City is 34-47 overall
- Kansas City is 19-19 at home
Minnesota Twins vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Kansas City returned home to Kauffman Stadium and finally snapped their 9 game losing streak. The Royals have an even record at home while the Twins have not been great away from Target Field.
Take Kansas City to win again as Duffy has been a reliable starter for the Royals.
