Samuel Deduno is making his second major league start of the year tonight, and his first start--the stats from which you can see above--didn't exactly go that well. That game was, however, against one of the best lineups in MLB in Detroit. Hopefully Deduno will fair better against a less formidable lineup (that would be the Brewers).

Brewers


Marco Estrada

#41 / Pitcher / Milwaukee Brewers

Despite his less than impressive numbers, Marco Estrada has had some good outings as of late. Estrada has a 2.75 ERA and 15 strikeouts in his last three starts, which is nothing to scoff at especially if you have a rotation like the Minnesota Twins.

Of all the Twins who have faced Marco Estrada, Justin Morneau has been the most successful, going 3 for 4 with a walk. Ryan Doumit has had the least success against Estrada, having gone 0 for 6 against him in his career.
