Texas Rangers vs Minnesota Twins 8/19/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Texas Rangers will meet with the Minnesota Twins in MLB action in Target Field, MN, on Friday, August 19, 2022, at 8:10 PM ET.


The Rangers are stuck in third place in the AL West and are not even close to making the playoffs. For what the management referred to as a “season of dissatisfactory improvement,” their dismal performance recently led to the termination of their manager, Chris Woodward.


The sacking of manager Chris Woodward last week sent a crystal-clear message to the Rangers roster: Things must improve.


The Rangers’ management spent money on upgrading their starting staff and adding a costly middle infield this offseason, but outcomes were not as expected.


Martin Perez, the Rangers’ most reliable pitcher so far this year, will start on Friday night. Perez lost his most recent start, ending a personal nine-game winning streak, but he still tops the Rangers in quality starts, wins, ERA, WAR, WHIP, innings pitched, and strikeouts.


Perez has a 3.19 ERA and a 2-1 record in his past five outings. In that time, he walked 16 batters while striking out 30.


In his lone start this year against the Twins, he went six innings, surrendered 7 hits, 6 earned runs, 2 home runs, and was left without a decision.


  • The Texas Rangers are 4-2 SU in their last 6 matches. 
  • Texas is 2-4 SU in their last 6 matches against Minnesota. 
  • The total went OVER in 5 of the Rangers’ last 6 matches on the road.

Texas Rangers vs Minnesota Twins Predictions 8/19/2022


The Twins are still very much in the mix for the AL playoffs as they continue their generally successful season. Veteran left-hander Martin Perez (9-3, 2.47) of the Rangers will face right-hander Dylan Bundy (6-5, 4.76) of the Twins in the pitching clash on Friday night.


The opening pitch is set for 8:10 EST. Despite only having a 13-17 record over their previous 30 matches, Minnesota has recently improved, winning three consecutive matches after sweeping the Royals to start the week.


With just two runs allowed in the 3 matches and an ERA of 0.79 in the three victories, the Twins’ pitching was excellent throughout the series.


Dylan Bundy, a righty, will start for Minnesota on Friday night. With a 5.05 ERA over his last five starts, Bundy is only 1-1. During this time, he started fewer starts than five innings on average and allowed 23 hits in 23.1 innings.


This year, Bundy made one start against the Rangers, winning after going 5 innings and allowing 6 hits and 4 runs.


  • The Minnesota Twins are 4-2 SU in their previous 6 matches. 
  • The total went OVER in 4 of Minnesota’s previous 6 contests against Texas. 
  • Minnesota is 5-1 SU in their last 6 matches at home.

Texas Rangers vs Minnesota Twins. The MLB pick for this game is the Minnesota Twins. For the Twins, this is a minimum two-out-of-three-win series.


Although Perez has pitched incredibly effectively this season, he struggled in both his most recent defeat and his lone appearance for the Twins this year.


In six innings of work against the powerful Astros offense, Perez allowed 7 runs on six hits. In a July game against the Twins, Perez allowed 7 hits, six runs, and two home runs.


Perez struggled to limit fly balls, for the most part, this season, but he did so in both of his appearances. At 34-25 entering play on Thursday afternoon, Minnesota played noticeably better at home than on the road this year.


The Twins are also 31-20 versus clubs below.500 and 19-16 against lefties so far this season. Minnesota will win predicted at 5-3.
