Twins Offense Breakdown

Our home run projections for the Twins are led by Byron Buxton, who has the 9th highest home run projection in the league today. If you’re looking for a Twins player to have a big day at the plate, we like Manuel Margot to have the most hits for the team. If you’re looking for a Twins player to hit a home run besides Buxton, we like Ryan Jeffers, as his home run projection is 10th best in the league today.

Even though the Tigers’ offense scored only five runs in their previous game vs. the Pirates, they were still able to pick up the win. Going into the game, they were at +103 on the money line. The Pirates made things interesting after pulling to within one run in the 8th, but Jason Foley was able to close things out and earned the save.

Shelby Miller got the win out of the bullpen, and Casey Mize started for the Tigers, going five innings and giving up two earned runs. Mize allowed one home run and five total hits.
