Today’s matchup is between the Cleveland Indians (26-18) and the Minnesota Twins (27-18). The Indians have lost their last 3 games to Kansas City and the Twins have won 3 of their last 5 games.

The Indians are starting Zach Plesac (RHP), on the mound who is 3-1 in 5 starts on the season pitching a 1.32 ERA, 2.89 FIP, .209 wOBA, K% of 27%, BB% of 1.6%, 87.2 MPH average exit velocity, and a .74 WHIP in 34 innings pitched.

The Twins are starting Rich Hill (LHP), who is 1-1 in 5 starts with a 3.86 ERA, 4.56 FIP, .311 wOBA, K% of 17.1%, BB% of 11.4%, 86.7 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.38 WHIP in 21 innings pitched.

The Indians are the 7th best in the Majors in Relieving Pitching while the Twins are 6th.

On the hitting side, the Indians have a .301 wOBA and a .318 OBP. The Twins have a .319 wOBA and a .320 OBP. The Indians have 43 HRs this season while the Twins have 63 HRs.

The Indians and Twins is an interesting matchup to breakdown, with the Indians having Zach Plesac at the mound vs the Twins overall with their batting, and their relieving. I'm going to go with the Twins since Rich Hill happens to be a lefty and the Indians haven't hit particularly well against lefties.
