The Minnesota Twins vs Tampa Bay Rays in MLB action in Charlotte Sports Park Port Charlotte, FL, on Tuesday, March 29, 2022, at 1:05 PM ET. Many supporters worried the Minnesota Twins would be forced to rebuild after a seemingly endless lockout.

 

The Twins, though, are set to battle their way back to the summit of the American League Central with the additions of Sonny Gray, Gary Sanchez, and Gio Urshela, as well as the major free agency signing phenom Carlos Correa.

 

The lineup appears to be as strong as ever, so I thought I’d take a moment to forecast the performance of every Minnesota Twins Opening Day Starter according to FanGraphs. In this post, we’ll use historical data and forecasts to estimate the triple slashing of all anticipated Opening Day starters, starting with the catcher and first baseman.

 

In sports, going from worst to first is a frequent topic. In 2021, the Twins did just that. After 2 years of dominance in the AL Central, they finished last in the division in the 2021 season.

 

José Berroa was dealt, Michael Pineda opted for free agency, and Kenta Maeda will miss the rest of the season due to Tommy John’s surgery. Alex Colomé signed a free agent contract, Hansel Robles was moved, and Taylor Rogers was sidelined most of the season due to a left middle finger injury. 

 

  • The Twins are 2-3 in their last 5 matches against the spread.
  • Minnesota is 14-21 in their previous 35 road matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 24 of the Twins’ 40 last matches at home.

Minnesota Twins vs Tampa Bay Rays Predictions 3/29/2022

 

Going into the 2022 season, the Tampa Bay Rays are one of the most intriguing case studies. They won 100 games in baseball’s hardest division, the American League East, in 2021.

 

For the fourth season in a row, they made the playoffs and won their division again. They had the best team on-base plus slugging percentage (.751) in the American League and produced the second runs. Despite this, the Rays were unable to win the hearts of their fans.

 

With a total season attendance of 761,072, they were the American League’s second-worst team. The Rays’ fan base is so awful that they’re considering playing half of their 2022 season matches in Montreal, Canada, at the ancient home of the Expos.

 

The plan was halted by MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred, but the mere concept of it demonstrates how terrible Tampa’s fans grew.

 

  • The Rays are 2-3 in their previous 5 matches against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 3 of the Rays’ previous 5 matches.
  • The totals went OVER in 19 of the Rays’ 39 last matches at home.

Minnesota Twins vs Tampa Bay Rays. The MLB pick for this game is the Tampa Bay Rays. Although their order lacks the power of the Toronto Blue Jays, Boston Red Sox, or even the New York Yankees, the Tampa Bay Rays assembled a very good batting order.

 

Austin Meadows will most likely play DH for most of the year, giving the 26-year-old the room he needs to return to his prior hitting averages. In 2019, he hit.291 with 33 home runs and 89 RBIs in 89 at-bats. Meadows’ hitting average dropped dramatically to .234, but his RBI total increased to 106 in 2021.

 

There is promise here. Meadows’ move to the DH position could help him find his perfect flow. The Tampa Bay Rays will win to a predicted score of 6-5.
