Berrios was solid in his last outing as he put in a quality start, but was tagged with his 11th loss of the season in a 1-4 loss to the Kansas City Royals.
He went six innings giving up three hits and one earned run while he struck out five and walked two.
In 173.2 innings of work this season, Berrios owns a solid 9.12 K/9, a solid 2.64 BB/9, and a slightly high 1.24 HR/9, and a solid 76.5% LOB%.
The end-result is a decent 3.83 ERA to go with a similar 4.01 FIP.
Minnesota has played solid baseball in the past week winning four of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .254/.315/.350 to go with 13 extra-base hits and 27 RBI.
Kansas City Royals
Lopez pitched a gem in his last outing as he put in a quality start and picked up his second win of the season in a 4-1 victory over Minnesota.
He pitched eight stellar-innings giving up just one hit and one earned run while he struck out four and walked one.
In 48.1 innings of work this season, Lopez owns a weak 6.89 K/9, a slightly high 4.10 BB/9, an excellent 0.56 HR/9, and a mediocre 73.1% LOB%.
The end-result is a solid 3.72 ERA to go with a similar 3.86 FIP.
Kansas City has played mediocre baseball in the past week winning three of their six contests.
During that span their lineup is slashing .227/.325/.359 to go with 16 extra-base hits and 22 RBI.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Kansas City Royals MLB Prediction:
Minnesota handles their business on the road against Kansas City.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: Twins -131
With Lopez’s inability to produce strikeouts, I don’t expect a repeat performance of last game where he only struck out four in eight innings of work, especially against the same lineup.
Berrios is coming off of a quality start and I like him to continue that against this Kansas City lineup that hasn’t been hitting the ball well in the past week.
