Who is the Cleveland Guardians probable starting pitcher?

The Cleveland Guardians will have Triston McKenzie start the first game of their series with the Minnesota Twins. McKenzie has allowed two runs or fewer in his last five starts and six of his previous seven.

The 26-year-old McKenzie will look to continue this recent streak against an opponent that he has dominated in the past. Holding the Twins to a .175/.252/.361 slash line in 97 at-bats, Minnesota has just 17 hits against McKenzie in previous meetings. The only Twins hitter with a respectable track record when facing McKenzie is Carlos Correa's 5-14 with two home runs. Meanwhile, Willie Castro (1-14, 10 strikeouts), Ryan Jeffers (3-14, five strikeouts), Max Kepler (2-19, three strikeouts), and Carlos Santana (0-10) have all struggled.

Who will the Cleveland Guardians lineup face?

Minnesota will counter with Simeon Woods Richardson on Friday. Woods Richardson is looking for a better start this time out, as he gave up five runs on eight hits in 4.1 innings of work against the Toronto Blue Jays, ending his streak of no more than two runs allowed in a start to begin the season. This will be the first time that the Guardians will face Woods Richardson.
