Andrew Heaney had his worst season in the major leagues in 2021 with an 8-9 record, a 5.83 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP across 129.2 innings with the Los Angeles Angels and New York Yankees. He’ll look to get things back on track this season with the Dodgers and is set to make his debut for Los Angeles on Tuesday night.
Chris Archer recorded a 4.66 ERA and a 1.34 WHIP in just 19.1 innings with the Tampa Bay Rays last season. Archer has struggled with injuries and consistency over the last four seasons after opening his career with a solid run as an effective starter for the Rays.
Los Angeles Struggling On Offense Out Of The Gate
Julio Urias allowed six runs in only two innings as the Dodgers lost to the Colorado Rockies 9-4 in Sunday’s series finale. The Dodgers have lost their last two games after opening the 2022 season with a 5-3 win over the Rockies.
Los Angeles’ lineup is stacked from top to bottom with excellent hitters and is expected to be among the best in baseball this season. But facing an underwhelming Rockies pitching staff in the thin air of Colorado, the Dodgers averaged only 3.67 runs per game in their season-opening series.
Carlos Correa Off To A Slow Start
The Twins picked up a 4-0 win over the Seattle Mariners on Monday night as Dylan Bundy and four relievers combined to allow only two hits in the shutout performance. Minnesota lost its first two games of the season to Seattle before bouncing back with back-to-back wins to split the four-game series.
Carlos Correa was signed to a 3-year, $105-million contract this offseason to bolster Minnesota’s lineup. Correa is off to a slow start out of the gate, batting just .125 with two runs and one RBI through his first 16 at-bats. Bettors taking Minnesota as their Dodgers vs Twins prediction would love to see Correa have a breakout game on Tuesday night.

Twins: Keys To Victory
Chris Archer is 0-3 with a 6.19 ERA and a 1.56 WHIP in three career starts against the Dodgers. All signs point to a high-scoring game in this one, so it will likely be up to the Twins offense to drive Minnesota to a win as the Dodgers vs Twins pick in Tuesday’s series opener.
