Pittsburgh Pirates vs Minnesota Twins 3/27/2023 Picks Predictions Previews


The Pittsburgh Pirates will meet with the Minnesota Twins in MLB action at Lee County Sports Complex, FL, on Monday, March 27, 2023, at 1:05 PM ET. Fans of the Pirates did not have anything to anticipate for a very long time.


From 2019 through 2021, the Buccaneers consistently placed fifth in the NL Central, and they only managed to place fourth last season on a technicality since the Pirates and Reds tied for last place with identical 62-100 records.


Things are starting to improve this year at last. Will the Pirates have a successful season? Very likely not. Can they raise their three-year winning percentage from.369 to anything higher? They most certainly can.


It’s not too far-fetched to forecast that they will better their 62-100 record from the previous season by 12 wins. Although it doesn’t make the Pirates a playoff club, it will make Pittsburgh’s baseball much more entertaining.


Reynolds is a gifted player in all areas, and for the past four years, he was Pittsburgh’s top player. For just as long, he was also the focus of trade speculations (at least it seems that way).


This year, the 28-year-old All-Star will still make headlines, but we’ll have to wait and see what they’ll be about. Hayes failed to match the extraordinary first season in which he recorded 1.9 fWAR in just 24 contests.


Although his bat was a weakness, he was regularly one of the top defensive players in the league. Hoi was a fan favorite in Tampa Bay and will have the chance to win over a new following there.


It’s great that the Pirates acquired such a dependable guy to occupy that position after having difficulty finding a first baseman in 2022.


The Pirates added a veteran trio to their lineup, and Santana is the third. Even though he is getting close to being 37 years old, he can still draw walks and smash double-digit home runs.


  • The Pittsburgh Pirates are 4-1 in their previous 5 meetings against the spread.
  • Pittsburgh is 42-39 in their previous road meetings against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 4 of the Pirates’ previous 5 meetings.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Minnesota Twins Predictions 3/27/2023


The Twins signed the biggest deal in franchise history as part of a busy, daring, drama-filled summer that was focused on turning things around after back-to-back losing seasons, including a September collapse last season caused by injuries.


In one of the strangest free-agent sagas ever, they stunned the baseball world by re-signing Carlos Correa for $200 million.


They also added starter Pablo Lopez and Christian Vázquez as new Opening Day batteries, took a one-year chance on slugger Joey Gallo’s comeback, and accumulated veteran depth in an effort to prevent a repeat of last season’s short-handed slump.


Just two 100-RBI seasons by Twins batters occurred in the previous ten years, with Eddie Rosario (109) and Nelson Cruz (108) surpassing the century mark for the record-breaking 2019 club.


Jose Miranda is a strong contender to finish third. His aggressive plate approach and an anticipated spot in the middle of the lineup, in addition to the fact that he is a highly talented young hitter, make him a candidate for huge RBI totals.


Miranda seldom walks, so he doesn’t miss many opportunities to get an RBI. Miranda is expected to take one of the typical RBI positions when Correa and other hitters reach base.


  • The Minnesota Twins are 1-4 in their previous 5 meetings against the spread.
  • The Minnesota Twins are 34-47 in their previous road meetings against the spread.
  • The totals went OVER in 2 of the Twins’ previous 5 matches.

Pittsburgh Pirates vs Minnesota Twins. The MLB pick for this game is the Pittsburgh Pirates. There’s a great chance here. At some point this year, Endy Rodriguez will take over as the starting catcher.


He excelled every step of the way last season as he advanced from High-A to Double-A to Triple-A.


Although the Pirates don’t need to push him because he’s only 22 years old, he can only dominate Triple-A pitching for so long until he needs a new challenge.


Although Henry Davis is behind Rodriguez in terms of development, he is a little older and might be called up if he performs well in the lower leagues.


Quinn Priester had a successful season’s end in 2022. Although he won’t be the first option mentioned in the event of an injury since he needs a little more experience at Triple-A, don’t be shocked if he starts for Pittsburgh in the next few games.


Mike Burrows, who is a year older than Priester, played at Triple-A for the first half of his 2022 season. Although his potential isn’t as high, he’s more likely to get called up in the first part of the season.


Both Luis Ortiz and Liover Peguero experienced the major leagues for a limited period of time last season, but neither is prepared to stay there permanently.


Due to a lack of options, Peguero was brought up last summer, but his bat isn’t nearly ready for major-league pitching.


Ortiz is closer, but the Pirates shouldn’t push him because of how much potential he has. The Pittsburgh Pirates will win to a predicted score of 6-3.
