Stephen Nover Free Friday MLB Play

On June 22, 2018, in Free Picks, MLB, by Stephen

Rangers at Twins Under 9 minus $1.15

The Twins have a bottom-10 offense. Their attack is made even less bothersome if you subtract their two best hitters, Eduardo Escobar and Eddie Rosario.

Esobar was lifted from Thursday’s 9-2 loss to the Red Sox after getting hit on the right elbow by a 92-mph fastball from Rick Porcello. Rosario missed the game due to shoulder soreness. Rosario is the Twins’ top hitter batting .320 with a team-leading 16 homers and 46 RBI’s. Escobar leads the majors in doubles with 32 and is second on Minnesota in homers with 12 and first in RBI’s with 48. Both are in danger of missing this game. The Twins already are without Miguel Sano and injured Byron Buxton.

This would be a huge break for lefty Mike Minor. Yep that Mike Minor, the former promising Braves pitcher who has been bad most of the season. Minor, though, did pitch well two seasons ago posting a 2.55 ERA for the Royals and he’s in his best form this year. He’s had back-to-back quality starts. The Under has cashed nine of the last 11 times the Twins have faced a southpaw starter.

Good-looking rookie Fernando Romero will be on the hill for Minnesota. He’s given up three earned runs or fewer in eight of his nine starts. He is 2-0 with a 2.91 ERA at Target Field. The Twins haven’t surrendered more than four runs in six of their last seven games.

Texas has gone Under in 16 of its last 21 road games.
