The Minnesota Twins find themselves as possible sellers at the trade deadline. The Twins are one game under .500 and six games back of AL Central leading Cleveland. Minnesota is 4-6 over the last 10 games, including a win in game one of three at Oakland, 6-3.
Veteran Bartolo Colon (0-1, 7.00 ERA) will make his third start for Minnesota. In his first two starts combined for the Twins, he pitched nine innings, allowing 16 hits, seven runs (all earned), two home runs and five strikeouts. He is 0-1 with a 7.00 ERA in those starts.
Oakland is out of playoff contention, and selling at the trade deadline. The most valuable piece Oakland has is starting pitcher Sonny Gray. Gray has been the talk of trade speculation over the last two years.
He was not traded last year due to injury.
Gray has been pulled from tonight’s start with Monday’s non-waiver Trade Deadline looming.
Cotton will return from the disabled list after dealing with a blister on his right thumb, making his first start since July 7.
He pitched six innings, allowing five hits, four runs (all earned) three home runs, two walks and four strikeouts losing, 9-1.

Free Minnesota Twins vs. Oakland Athletics MLB Prediction:
I expect the Oakland Athletics to get hot early against Colon. Oakland might not be a playoff team, but they hit well at home and hit home runs. Take Oakland in this game.
4* Free MLB Betting Pick: UNDER the Number
The combined run total is 9.5 for this contest. Colon will get pulled in the four or fifth inning and Minnesota will rely on their bullpen after. The twins will get runs too, but not many. I like the game to stay under 9.5. Gray should hold the Twins lineup in check.
