Who is the Cleveland Guardians probable starting pitcher?

Carlos Carrasco gets the nod for the second game in Minnesota. Cookie made his return to Cleveland's rotation last week in Oakland, allowing three runs on six hits in 5 innings with three strikeouts and one walk in a 4-3 loss to the Athletics. It was not necessarily a great performance, but not a bad one either, as Carrasco pitched well enough to give the Guardians a chance to win.

Saturday's matchup with the Twins could be a chance for Carrasco to get his first win of the season. The 37-year-old veteran has been very successful in previous matchups, limiting the lineup to 14 hits in 72 at-bats. Notable batting lines include Max Kepler (7-34), Carlos Correa (3-13), and Byron Buxton (2-10).

Who will the Cleveland Guardians lineup face?

Minnesota will go with Joe Ryan for Game 2. Ryan shut down the Kansas City Royals in his first start, holding them to just one run on three hits in 5.1 innings of work.

Guardians hitters have not been very successful when facing Ryan in the past, slashing .213/.237/.340 as a team. Jose Ramirez is 3-21, Andres Gimenez is 4-19, and Josh Naylor is 2-11 in previous matchups with Ryan. It could be a long day for Guardians hitters if they do not find a way to turn their luck around at the plate.
