Triston McKenzie has been great all season, allowing 21 hits and nine runs in 29.1 innings while striking out 30. Joe Ryan has been sharp as well, but he’s been shaky in his last two starts, allowing 10 hits and six runs in his last 8.2 innings while walking six. The Minnesota Twins have also been shaky all week. There’s great value with the Guardians as an underdog here.
