Minnesota Twins Fantasy Spin

Twins placed DH Nelson Cruz on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to May 14, with a left wrist strain. An MRI on Cruz's wrist on Monday came back clean, but he still hasn't felt well enough to return to the lineup and the Twins don't want to play shorthanded anymore. Cruz will be eligible for activation on May 24, although it's unclear at this point whether he will be ready at that time. The club figures to rotate various players into the DH spot while Cruz is out.

Seattle Mariners Fantasy Spin

J.P. Crawford hit his first home run of the season in Thursday's loss to the Twins. Crawford caught a hanging Michael Pineda breaking ball in the fifth inning and yanked it out to right, barely clearing the wall. The ball was actually such a rope that it bounced off the railing in the stands and bounced back onto the field with some force. The homer, a solo shot, was Crawford's first in six games since being promoted, and he's hitting .217/.250/.391 in those six games. The once-top prospect has lost a lot of luster after continued struggles at the dish, but the pedigree is such that he's an interesting player to monitor if nothing else.

MLB Betting Trends

Minnesota

The Twins are 4-0 in their last four road games and 11-0 in their last 11 road games versus a team with a losing record.

Seattle

The Mariners are 4-13 in their last 17 games overall.

Prediction:

The Mariners are really scuffling, dropping 13 of their last 17 overall and 11 of their last 15 at home. They’re also just 2-7 in Marco Gonzales’s last nine starts coming off four days of rest and are 1-6 in their last seven games when facing a left-handed starter. On the other side, the Twins are 4-1 in Martin Perez’s last five starts and are 35-16 in their last 51 games overall.

The Pick: Minnesota Twins -109
