Tampa Bay Rays vs Minnesota Twins 6/12/2022 Picks Predictions Previews

 

The Tampa Bay Rays will go against the Minnesota Twins in MLB action in Target Field, MN, on Sunday, June 12, 2022, at 2:10 PM ET.

 

The Tampa Bay Rays’ 2022 season is far from a disaster, but the early going showed that matters will not be as simple as they were last season for the defending AL East champions.

 

Last year’s club was known for timely hitting, a good bullpen, and defense, but not all of those aspects are there in 2022. The Rays were defeated 6-5 by the AL Central Division-leading Minnesota Twins on Saturday.

 

Jeffrey Springs will earn his 16th start of the season on Sunday, and his 8th as a starter. Springs thrived and provided Tampa Bay another credible starter, despite being assigned for what appears to be an opener’s position.

 

Springs was pushed out to 90+ pitches for the first time this year in his last appearance, going six innings and allowing six hits but no runs. His ERA is presently at a dazzling 1.62.

 

  • The total went OVER in 4 of Tampa Bay’s last 6 matches. 
  • The Tampa Bay Rays are 1-5 SU in their last 6 matches against Minnesota.
  • Tampa Bay is 2-5 SU in their last 7 matches on the road.

Tampa Bay Rays vs Minnesota Twins Predictions 6/12/2022

 

The Minnesota Twins reclaimed first place in the AL Central, and with their most serious competitor, the Chicago Cubs, struggling recently, they may not be going anywhere for a long.

 

With a 35-26 record and a 4-game lead in the AL Central, the Twins claimed two consecutive matches. In the feeble AL Central Division race, only Cleveland has a winning record.

 

The Twins won 6-5 on Saturday after scoring five times in the third inning and once in the sixth. Luis Arraez, the American League’s top hitter with a.367 average, led the way by going 3-for-4 with a home run and four RBI in the win.

 

Cole Sands will take the mound for the Twins on Sunday, with the potential to complete the series sweep. Sands only made four appearances this year, two of which were starts. He was unsuccessful thus far, allowing 17 hits in his 11.2 innings of work.

 

In four starts, he walked six hitters and struck out 13. He only lasted 3.2 innings against the Yankees in his last appearance, giving up eight hits and four runs in a 10-4 Twins defeat.

 

  • The Minnesota Twins are 4-2 SU in their last 6 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 6 of Minnesota’s last 7 matches against Tampa Bay. 
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Minnesota’s last 5 matches at home.

Tampa Bay Rays vs Minnesota Twins. The MLB pick for this game is the Tampa Bay Rays. When Springs takes against Sands tomorrow afternoon, Tampa Bay should have a clear pitching advantage.

 

Sands struggled in his starts this season and was forced into a starting role owing to injuries to the Twins’ pitching staff. Springs progressed from his initial role as an opener to a respectable spot in the Rays’ rotation. Sands failed to go past the fourth inning in both of his outings this season for the Twins.

 

Springs went 11 innings in his two starts this month, allowing 11 hits and only two runs on solo home runs. In his seven starts thus far this year, the Rays are 5-2. Behind Springs’ left arm, Tampa Bay should be able to salvage a win in this series. The Tampa Bay Rays will win to a predicted score of 5-4.
