White Sox vs Twins Free Pick May 17, 2021
Stephen Nover White Sox vs Twins Free Pick
Start Time: May 17 2021, 7:40 PM
At some point the Twins have to improve on their 13-25 record. They certainly aren’t that bad. But I don’t see Minnesota starting to turn around its season in this game.
Yes, the Twins draw aging and declining Dallas Keuchel. But the White Sox get southpaw J.A. Happ.
The White Sox are a mind-boggling 22-2 against lefty starters since the start of last season. Chicago leads the majors in batting against lefties at .293. The next closest is the Red Sox at .282.
Happ found out the hard way how well the White Sox hit and play against lefties when he faced them in a 13-8 loss this past Wednesday in Chicago. The White Sox battered Happ for nine earned runs in 3 1/3 innings, by far his worst outing of the season. The 38-year-old Happ is another over-the-hill veteran, who has a bad history against the White Sox. His ERA is 6.34 in nine career starts versus Chicago. The White Sox lead the American League with a .343 on-bast percentage.
Current White Sox batters are hitting a combined .333 versus Happ.
Chicago enters this series having won eight of its last 10, while the Twins have dropped nine of their last 11 games. Minnesota is giving up an average of 7.1 runs in its last seven games.
