The Yankees are starting Michael King (RHP), who is 0-3 on the season with a 3.62 ERA, 4.18 FIP, .307 wOBA, K% of 20.8%, BB% of 8.3%, 88.1 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.29 WHIP in 27.1 innings pitched.

The Twins are starting J.A. Happ (LHP), who is 3-2 on the season with a 5.61 ERA, 4.79 FIP, .341 wOBA, K% of 16.8%, BB% of 7.3%, 91.1 MPH average exit velocity, and a 1.33 WHIP in 51.1 innings pitched.

On the hitting side, The Yankees have a .306 wOBA, .316 OBP, .374 SLG, .69 OPS, 95 wRC+, & 71 HRs. The Twins have a .321 wOBA, .315 OBP, .423 SLG, .738 OPS, 105 wRC+, & 83 HRs.

If you would just look at their records you would think J.A. Happ is the better pitcher but that isn't so. Michael King has a respectable stat line & better than Happ's. The Yankees have the relieving edge while the Twins have the hitting edge. Overall, I like Michael King to get his first win of the season for the Yankees!
