Cleveland Indians Fantasy Spin

Hanley Ramirez went 2-for-2 and clubbed his first home run of the season, leading the Indians to a 2-1 victory over the Twins on Saturday afternoon. Ramirez tagged Twins' starter Jake Odorizzi for a solo shot in the fourth inning to get the Indians on the board. That was the only hit they would get against Odorizzi through six innings. Ramirez also singled and drew a pair of walks in the contest, reaching base safely in each of his four plate appearances. It's only been a couple of games, but the early returns look extremely encouraging for the 35-year-old slugger.

Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin

Jorge Polanco went 1-for-2 with a triple and a run scored as the Twins fell to the Indians on Saturday afternoon. Polanco's one-out triple off of Trevor Bauer in the fourth inning was the lone base hit that the Twins could muster against the right-hander. He immediately scored on an RBI ground out by Nelson Cruz, but that was the extent of the Twins' offense. Polanco also drew a walk in the contest. He's hitting .167 (1-for-6) through his first two games and is still looking for his first RBI.

MLB Betting Trends

Cleveland

The Indians are 8-3 in their last 11 meetings with the Twins overall.

Minnesota

The Twins have dropped 15 of their last 22 games versus the Tribe in Minnesota.

Prediction:

Carlos Carrasco was excellent in 2018, striking out a career-high 231 batters over 192 innings. He’s coming off a solid spring as well, posting a 3-1 record and a 3.79 ERA with 22 strikeouts over 19 innings. Michael Pineda, meanwhile, makes his return from Tommy John Surgery in 2017 and meniscus surgery on his right knee just over a year later. It’s unlikely Minnesota pushes Pineda but with the way Cleveland’s bats have struggled out of the gates, the Twins’ pen should be able to handle the Tribe. The under is 19-7-1 in the last 27 meetings between these two teams at Target Field and is 5-2 in Carrasco’s last seven road outings versus the Twins.

The Pick: Indians/Twins under 7
