White Sox @ Twins (-255, O/U 9.5)

  • The Twins offense has averaged 5.87 runs in support of Jose Berrios this season. 

  • Over four starts against the White Sox (27.0 innings) this season, Berrios owns a 3.00 ERA and a 25:3 K:BB ratio.

Berrios Deals Against Chicago

Many pitchers have done well against the Chicago White Sox this season, but Jose Berrios has thrived. Over four starts (27.0 innings) against them, Berrios owns a polished 3.00 ERA with a 25:3 K:BB ratio. Three of the four starts have been in Chicago, but Berrios has still managed to earn three wins against them.

Minnesota’s wealth of offensive firepower has granted Berrios with a luxurious 5.87 runs per game, an amount that any pitcher would love to have. The ace has claimed two wins over his last three starts and should enjoy making a start in Minnesota tonight. His ERA at home (3.32) versus away (3.90) is superior, and he’s fresh off 7.0 shutout innings against the Washington Nationals where he allowed two hits and one walk.

Advanced Stats

Berrios has enjoyed a terrific 2019 campaign, holding opponents to a low 6.0 percent walk rate. Opposing bats are making hard contact just 35.6 percent of the time. He gets ahead with a first-pitch strike 65.2 percent of the time, which has limited his free passes.

The White Sox feature eight bats with high strikeout rates against righties (above 21 percent), making this a match made in heaven for fantasy purposes. It doesn’t hurt that Reynaldo Lopez and his 5.35 ERA oppose Berrios tonight. The Twins offense has clobbered five long-balls over 9 2/3 innings against Lopez this season. Berrios’ odds for a win are maxed out in this matchup.
