Minnesota Twins: What to watch for against the Detroit Tigers
By Chris Schad
Can Jake Odorizzi keep it going?
One of the best storylines this season has been the dominance of Jake Odorizzi. After having a disappointing 2018 season, the 29-year old currently leads the American League in ERA at 1.96, is third in wins (8) and fourth in WHIP (0.96). Such stats are nice to have when Odorizzi will run into one of the league’s worst lineups on Sunday afternoon.
As of now, Odorizzi is positioning himself not only for an All-Star bid, but potentially pitching his way into the American League Cy Young race. While all that is nice, Odorizzi needs to take things one start at a time and if he can put another great start together in Detroit, it will be one less game that the Twins will have to rely on their shaky bullpen.
If Odorizzi can pick up the win, it will be another step forward in what has been the ultimate rebound year for the Twins right-hander.
