Analysis

If you're not familiar with the name Cole Ragans, it might be one to put on your betting radar. The 26-year-old lefty has become a late bloomer and his development in Kansas City has been impressive. Ragans was traded from Texas to Kansas City last season, and he went 5-2 with a 2.64 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP with the Royals. His 96.7 mile per hour average fastball was the second-highest among left-handed starters last season. His average fastball jumped +4.4 miles per hour from the 2022 season to last season, which was the biggest leap in baseball last season. On the other side, Minnesota will likely have one of the best bullpens in the game this season. Entering Opening Day, FanGraphs has the Twins' bullpen ranked as the best in the American League.
