Zack Littell (2-5, 4.24 ERA) vs. Simeon Woods Richardson (2-1, 3.29 ERA)

Zack Littell‘s season for the Tampa Bay Rays has been both resilient and vulnerable on the mound, showing both resilience and vulnerability with regards to his 4.24 ERA through over 76 innings pitched. While Littell is capable of striking out batters (71 Ks in all) at times, his propensity to allow hits (92) and homer runs (10), as well as his 1.38 WHIP may indicate frequent baserunners which could be potentially exploited by Twins strong lineup. Littell will play an instrumental role for keeping them stable early; Littell will play an essential part in keeping Twin hitters at bay.

Simeon Woods Richardson of the Minnesota Twins has shown encouraging signs of becoming an effective starting pitcher, boasting an impressive record and 3.29 ERA through 54 innings pitched compared to Littell (2-1 with 48 hits allowed and 1.15 WHIP), not to mention limited walks and homer runs (6 total allowed). Richardson may not strike out quite as often but his ability to limit walks/home runs gives him an edge for maintaining lower scoring innings which could prove key against an inconsistent Rays lineup; should Richardson use his strengths well against them Richardson could lead his Twins side to victory!
