Minnesota Twins vs Cleveland Guardians 9/16/2022 Picks Predictions Previews


The Minnesota Twins will go against the Cleveland Guardians at Progressive Field, OH on Friday, September 16, 2022, at 7:10 PM ET.


The Minnesota Twins held the lead in the AL Central for the majority of the season, but the Guardians quickly overtook them. Their dominance over the Twins played a significant role in that run.


They have a 9-4 record this season versus the Twins and won 5 straight. The Twins are now 5 games behind the Guardians in the division, not including Thursday’s game against the Royals.


For the game on Friday, the Twins did not select a starter yet. Chris Archer, who would start in this position, is out for the year due to a pectoral injury that he sustained after making his previous start against the Guardians.


There aren’t many choices left for the Twins staff due to the devastation caused by injuries, so a bullpen day or a call-up from further down the depth chart seems likely.


The Twins’ 4.00 team ERA places them 19th in MLB. With an ERA of 3.89, the bullpen ranks 15th in the league. 


  • The total went OVER in 6 of Minnesota’s previous 9 matches. 
  • The Minnesota Twins are 0-5 SU in their last 5 contests against Cleveland. 
  • The team is 2-10 SU in their last 12 games on the road.
