My free play is on the Min Twins at 8:10 ET.
The Cleveland Indians won the AL Central three straight years from 2016-18, before missing the postseason in 2019, despite winning 93 games. Cleveland was back in the postseason in 2020, due to an expanded playoff field caused by COVID-19. The Indians are currently 41-31, two games back of the division-leading White Sox and are expected to be in the postseason 'hunt' all the way, challenging for the AL Central title or a wild card spot. The 2021 outlook for Minnesota is nowhere near as rosy. The Twins have won the AL Central the last two seasons (.617 winning percentage) and opened the 2021 season having made the postseason in THREE of the previous four years. However, unlike Cleveland, Minnesota has NOT been competitive. The Twins are currently 31-43, leaving them in last-place in the AL Central, 13 games back of the White Sox.
These two AL Central rivals opened a four-game series in Minnesota last night, with the Indians winning 4-1. Eddie Rosario broke a 1-1 eighth-inning tie with a two-run single in his first game in Minnesota since he signed with Cleveland in the offseason (note: Rosario spent his first six MLB seasons with the Twins). The win was Cleveland's SEVENTH in its last 10. The Twins had won five in a row from June 16 through June 21 (team's longest winning streak of the season) but the 4-1 loss was Minnesota's second straight, after losing 10-7 to the Reds on Tuesday.
The Indians will send Cal Quantrill (0-2, 2.74 ERA) to the mound to face the Twins on Friday night. Minnesota was expected to start Randy Dobnak (1-6, 7.83) but he was placed on the 10-day IL with a strained middle finger on his pitching hand. Instead, the Twins will give the 31-year-old left-hander Danny Coulombe his first major league start, as he's been recalled from Triple-A St Paul. Quantrill began his career with San Diego in 2019, going 6-8 with a 5.16 ERA in 23 appearances (18 starts). He made 10 appearances for the Padres last season (only ONE start), going 2-0 with a 2.60 ERA, but was traded to Cleveland towards the end of the season. He made eight appearances (two starts) for the Indians, going 0-0 with a 1.84. He's been used mostly out of the bullpen in 2021, going 0-2 with a 2.74 ERA in 22 appearances but just four starts (team is 2-2 in those starts).
Coulombe began his career with the Dodgers back in 2015 but was traded to Oakland during that season. He pitched for the A's from 2016-198 making 134 appearances, all in relief (6-4 with a 4.10 ERA). He spent all of 2019 in the minors and made just two relief appearances for Minneota in 2020, pitching 2.2 scoreless innings. As noted above, this will be his FIRST start, after 150 career relief appearances. Call it a 'feeling,' but I'll back Coulombe in his first-ever MLB start. After all, he's stepping in for Dobnak, who owns a 7.83 ERA, 1.65 WHIP and .324 BAA.
