This will be the first game of the series between the Mariners and Twins, as the M’s are finishing up a quick two-game trip out to San Francisco on Wednesday night.
That makes for a tough spot in this one, traveling overnight, losing two hours and then playing a mid-afternoon game in Minnesota the next day.
The good news is that Seattle has won three of its first four and has King Felix on the hill on Wednesday after he blanked the Indians for six innings and beat Corey Kluber on Opening Day. While he’s still fresh, Hernandez can still get it. I’m just not buying him long-term after what I saw last season.
James Paxton struggled to keep the ball in the yard in his first start, even with Ichiro taking one back. Paxton didn’t make it out of the fifth in that first start.
Kyle Gibson threw six no-hit innings against Baltimore in his first start of the season, a 6–2 win, one of Minnesota’s two in the early going.
Gibson did walk five guys but it was a spectacular start coming from a guy who has posted back-to-back full seasons with a WHIP just over 1.50 and an ERA of exactly 5.07. He’s one of the more hittable guys in the league.
Brian Dozier is off to a hot start with three of his team’s eight home runs. It’s really kind of amazing, and a little hard to believe, what Dozier is doing at his age and stage in his career.
Miguel Sano has two of the other five. The problem is, he’s just 1-for-15 in his other at-bats.

Free Seattle Mariners vs. Minnesota Twins MLB Prediction: give me Minnesota.
Not used to doing this with Gibby on the hill, but this is a tough spot for Seattle’s regulars with the travel. I’m not sure how good Paxton will be in the cold weather. He may be a guy who needs a little sun on him. I’m staying away for another month or so.
