Minnesota Twins: Who’s Hot and Who’s Not, Mid-May
Jose Berrios was impressive in his first MLB start of 2017.
It’s only been one game, but there is most definitely reason to freak out about Jose Berrios. He’s been a highly sought-after prospect for a long time, and we’ve just been waiting for his coming out party. We may have just seen it.
Against the Indians, Jose Berrios went 7.2 innings, giving up only 2 hits and 1 run.
Jose Berrios also struck out four batters and only walked one. His ERA is now 1.17.
The Minnesota Twins are in desperate need of some pitching help. Berrios could very well be that. Twins’ fans around the country were calling for him to be brought up, and when he finally was, there was a sigh of relief around Twins’ Nation.
If the Twins can get that kind of performance out of Jose Berrios every time he comes out, it could be very dangerous. He could be the second guy to a great 1-2 punch beginning with Ervin Santana.

The Minnesota Twins have been one of the surprise teams in the MLB this year. To keep it up, they’ll need the hot players to stay that way and the cold players to step it up. Only time will tell, but GO TWINS.
