Three starts into his Twins career, Walters is surprising...well, everyone. For a guy whose been pitching in triple-A since 2008 with occasional MLB stints, this isn't what the oracles foretold. Yet here we are.

If the Twins would like to salvage a victory in this series and keep their losing streak from extending to five games, they'll need him to come up big again. And it's certainly no small task against the Tigers. He mixes up his pitches pretty well, and he's had a good deal of success in term of BABIP, but he also hits too much of the plate against right-handed hitters.


Rick Porcello

#48 / Pitcher / Detroit Tigers

It hasn't been a good start to the season for Porcello, but what do you expect from a 20-year old pitcher? Yes, the "RICK PORCELLO IS JUST 20 YEARS OLD" meme will never die.

Let's win Twins!
