Tampa Bay Rays
Blake Snell and Kyle Gibson will be a fine pitching matchup in the first game of this series on Tuesday but there is no drop-off on Wednesday, when Charlie Morton takes on Jake Odorizzi.
Morton lost his first game of the season two starts ago but is 8–1 with a league-leading 2.31 ERA. He’s covered at least six innings in 10 of his last 12 starts and will certainly be an All-Star for the second time in his career after getting his first nod last season at the age of 34.
The Rays have won just four of their last 13 games, going into Tuesday’s opener in Minnesota and the bullpen is vulnerable with Diego Castillo on the DL and Jose Alvarado still not ready to return from a personal issue that has had him out all month.
The Rays are deep, though, and should be able to weather the storm, as they kind of have since the start of May. I still believe this team is as good as any in baseball, save perhaps New York and Los Angeles, when completely healthy.
The Twins have gone just 3–5 in their last eight and are dealing with a host of injuries to the lineup themselves.
As a result, the Indians have cut Minnesota’s lead in the Central down to 7.5. The Twins’ schedule until the All-Star Break isn’t easy, either, with this series, followed by back-to-back road series against the White Sox and A’s, before finishing at home against Texas.
Morton leads the AL in ERA in his first season as a Ray; Jake Odorizzi leads the league in wins in his second as a Twin.
After three consecutive above-average seasons in Tampa, Odorizzi was underwhelming last season but is on pace for his best campaign ever in 2019. He’s never struck out 9.7 batters per nine innings, which he is so far doing this season. He’s also never held opponents to less than seven hits per nine, which he’s also so far doing this year.
