Cleveland Guardians vs Oakland Athletics 3/20/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Cleveland Guardians will meet with the Oakland Athletics in MLB action in HoHoKam Stadium Mesa, AZ, on Sunday, March 20, 2022, at 4:05 PM ET. The Guardians ended with a winless record for the first time since 2012.

 

The Guardians were compelled to depend on a lot of younger athletes who lacked MLB experience due to Shane Bieber completing only 16 starts and their offense missing consistency from top to bottom. The average age of a batter for the Guardians was 26.7 years old, the youngest it was since 1992.

 

The Indians found themselves closer, despite the lack of saving opportunities. With a 1.29 ERA and 24 saves in 69.2 innings, Emmanual Clase was dealt to Cleveland in the Corey Kluber transaction and had a fantastic 2021 season.

 

Bobby Bradley’s experiment at first base is a colossal disaster thus far, with the 25-year-old hitting.178 in 2019 and .208 in 2021. Bradley has a lot of pop and may be an ideal fit for the offense, but Terry Francona struggled to keep him in the lineup due to his 35.5 strikeout rate and lack of consistent contact.

 

The Guardians might sign free agents Brad Miller or Colin Moran, who are both reasonable alternatives for Cleveland.

 

  • The Guardians are 17-7 in their last 24 matches as a favorite.
  • Cleveland is 5-11 in their last 16 home matches.
  • The Guardians are 2-5 in their last 7 interleague matches.

Cleveland Guardians vs Oakland Athletics Predictions 3/20/2022

 

I anticipated the Athletics to make a strong postseason push in the second half of the season after acquiring Starling Marte. Oakland, on the other hand, went 34-36 after the all-star break, finishing 6 matches out of the AL Wild Card race.

 

Frankie Montas had a breakout season, finishing sixth in the AL Cy Young voting with a 3.37 ERA and 1.182 WHIP. He was the bright spot in an otherwise disappointing season for the Athletics, and with two more seasons on his deal, Oakland will most certainly try to construct a team around him.

 

However, with several key pieces of the Athletics’ roster set to become free agents in 2022, we might witness a completely different club.

 

Ramon Laureano, the Athletics’ primary center fielder, will miss the first 80 matches of the 2022 season since he is currently serving an 80-game ban for PED violations. Oakland was caught off guard by the ban, but he will be out for the first month of the season.

 

For the 2022 season, Starling Marte, Yan Gomes, Josh Harrison, and Mark Canha all signed with other teams. Andrew Chafin, Trevor Rosenthal, Michael Fiers, Jed Lowrie, Mitch Moreland, and others are still available for free agency.

 

  • The Athletics are 3-2 in their last 5 matches.
  • Oakland is 4-1 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 21 of Athletics’ 41 last matches at home.

Cleveland Guardians vs Oakland Athletics. The MLB pick for this game is the Cleveland Guardians. Before the commencement of the lockout, the Guardians made very few movements.

 

With so many voids on the field, the Guardians will need to make an impact in the free-agent market if they want to compete and retain Ramirez in Cleveland. Ramirez and Amed Rosario, who had a terrific debut year in Cleveland with a.282 average in 141 games, are on the left side of their infield, but first base is their largest infield deficiency right now. The Cleveland Guardians will win at 6-5.
