Oakland Athletics vs Minnesota Twins 5/8/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Oakland Athletics will meet with the Minnesota Twins in MLB action in Target Field, MN, on Sunday, May 8, 2022, at 2:10 PM ET.

 

The Oakland Athletics failed to be a threat on offense, presently ranking last in the league with a.589 team OPS and a 3.58 run per game average.

 

Christian Pache, the team’s center fielder, struggled early in the season, going 15-for-82 with a.495 OPS, two home runs, and six RBI while walking just twice and striking out 19 times. So far this season, he hit better on the road, slashing.250/.267/.386 with a home run and four RBI in 13 matches.

 

Daulton Jeffries is Oakland’s 13th-ranked prospect, but his metrics from Baseball Savant show that he struggled throughout the 2022 season, with strikeout percentages in the 15th percentile, xBA in the 22nd percentile, xSLG in the 29th percentile, and barrel % in the 29th percentile.

 

Jefferies has a five-pitch repertoire, with his curveball being the most hit, with batters hitting it 5-of-14 while striking out four times. He never played Minnesota, but in seven career road outings (five starts), he surrendered 16 runs on 24 hits with 10 walks and 13 strikeouts in 23.2 innings.

 

  • The Oakland Athletics are 0-8 SU in their last 8 matches.
  • Oakland is 13-7 SU in their last 20 matches against Minnesota.
  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Oakland’s last 5 matches on the road.

Oakland Athletics vs Minnesota Twins Predictions 5/8/2022

 

The Minnesota Twins are a decent offensive club this season, ranking 10th in MLB with a.710 OPS and being patient at the plate, drawing 95 walks as a team.

 

Carlos Correa, the shortstop who escaped the IL following a hit by pitch, must step up at the plate with an.831 OPS, 5 homers, 12 RBI, and 9 runs scored. He also attempted two base steals. Correa is no stranger to the A’s, having played 95 games versus them and hitting.239 with 12 home runs, 53 RBI, and 43 runs scored.

 

Chris Padack throws 4 pitches (fastball, changeup, curveball, and slider), with the changeup being his strongest pitch, with batters hitting.217 against it and a.348 slugging percentage. Chris Paddack pitched well against Oakland in his two career appearances, going 1-1 with a 5.91 ERA in 10.2 innings.

 

  • The total went UNDER in 4 of Minnesota’s previous 6 matches.
  • The Minnesota Twins are 13-3 SU in their last 16 matches.
  • The total went UNDER in 13 of Minnesota’s previous 20 matches against Oakland.

Oakland Athletics vs Minnesota Twins. The MLB pick for this game is the Minnesota Twins. The Minnesota Twins are one of the strongest teams in the American League, while the Oakland Athletics, despite a strong start, are suffering.

 

The main difference between both clubs during the last 15 days is that Minnesota is third in MLB with an.803 OPS, while Oakland is in the dead last with a.526 OPS.

 

While Chris Paddack has a history of showing the potential to get going and put some zeroes on the board, Daulton Jefferies is in his 12th game and the seventh start of his career, so we are yet to see what he can be and struggled.

 

The Minnesota Twins have a superior roster and a deeper lineup, so choose them to win in their own stadium. The Minnesota Twins will win to a predicted score of 5-2.
