2019 Game 132: Minnesota Twins at Chicago White Sox

Jake Odorizzi
vs
Ross Detwiler

Another Wednesday Odorizzi start. This time he gets to face Ross Detwiler instead of Giolito. Detwiler has 5.4 rWAR less than Giolito but he did beat the Twins in his only start against them. His season went rapidly downhill from there, including two more appearances against the Twins in July. He's been home run prone, not in the 2019 sense, but actually. He gave up one home run in each appearance so here's to at least 256 home runs after tonight.

    1. For those not watching on TV, Sano tried to call time, half stepped out of the box, stepped back in and hit the ball to the shortstop who I think may also have thought time was granted.

            1. His pitching style and the big jump in his split between the second and third times through the order mean they will never use him really deep into games. That's just the way it is. But other than the Yankee game he's been competitive or better since the All-Star break; not the nearly untouchable he was in May, but effective.

      1. 66 home runs through yesterday in 27 games. They never eclipsed 50 home runs in a month and now topped 60. The Twins have consistently been above 50 however and are at 49 now.

        1. Yankees schedule rest of the way and the opponent's rank in HR allowed (lower number being better)

          Athletics: (4th)
          Rangers: (18th)
          Red Sox: (14th)
          Tigers: (24th)
          Blue Jays: (16th)
          Rays: (1st)
          Rangers: (14th)

          And now for the Twins remaining opponents:

          White Sox: (20th)
          Tigers: (24th)
          Red Sox: (14th)
          Spiders: (7th)
          Nationals: (5th)
          Spiders: (7th)
          White Sox: (20th)
          Royals: (15th)
          Tigers: (24th)
          Royals: (15th)

  1. Yankees now within 8 homers of the Twins.

    Good news is Twins can only gain ground tomorrow with the Yanks being off, and they're facing Dylan Cease, who has the starter's second worst home run rate (2.0/9) after Detwiler
