The MLB is back in action today as the New York Yankees will clash with the Minnesota Twins.
The New York Yankees will give the starting nod to 38-year-old left-hander CC Sabathia, and the Twins will hand the ball to 28-year-old left-hander Martin Perez.
New York Yankees Form
The Yankees are one of the best teams in the league this season. And they also have CC Sabathia as he will get his 17th start of the season. His aim will be to get his first win for of the month.
Furthermore, Sabathia was solid in his last game, as he kept the Rays to three runs in six innings in a no-decision in a game the Yankees’ won.
On the offensive side of the game, the Yankees score an average of 5.69 runs per game which is the best scoring record in the Majors. Also, their pitching stands at 4.02 team ERA, placing them eighth in the Major Leagues.
Minnesota Twins Form
The Twins will give the nod to Martin Perez and this will his 20th start of the season. However, he only has 1 win this month and will need to improve in this game. On a positive side, Perez was great in his latest start, holding the Mets to only two runs (one earned) in six innings, leading to the no-decision in a game the Twins lost.
The Twins are a good team this season and there is more to come from them.
On the offensive side of the game, the Twins score an average of 5.59 runs per game which is the 3rd best record in the MLB in scoring. The Minnesota pitching staff has a 3.94 team ERA, which is the sixth-best record in the Majors.
The Twins and the Yankees are two great teams this season. This game will be very tight and the two teams have a good chance of winning it. However, I am siding with the Yankees in this one. CC Sabathia showed some promising signs and I expect him to make a difference in this game. Take the Yankees in this one.
