The Twins are giving Tyler Duffey extra days off, because he sucks is still young and they want to keep down his innings total. He's scheduled for Monday (and Phil Hughes for Tuesday, BTW.) So Milone goes today against Jose Quintana, a weirdo who pitches with the wrong hand. WAIT -- so does Milone. Expect both starters to be out there moonwalking and singing Beatles tunes in a way which makes every lyric "Paul is dead."

Their 2015 digits (note the baBIP, Vegas oddsmakers did):

ERA H/9 K/9 BB/9 HR/9 OPS v L/R baBIP FIP
Quintana 3.60 10.0 7.8 1.9 0.7 .658/.785 .344 3.21
Milone 3.54 8.5 6.3 2.3 1.3 .551/.764 .269 4.39

Your matchup magic! Milone gets hit hard by Avisail Garcia, of all people. He's frustrated Alexei Ramirez, Melky Cabrera, and Adam Eaton. Quintana's been tough on Dozier, Escobar, and Santana. Hunter and Mauer, both with nearly 30 AB against him, rock Quintana's world.
