Continuing with the up and down
nature of their season thus far, the Nationals split a two game series with the
Mets; winning the first in the 9th and losing the second by nine. Roster
moves finally came with the DFA of Zack Duke and Henry Rodriguez and the
placing of Danny Espinosa on the DL. In their place, Jayson Werth returned to
the active roster and relievers Ian Krol and Fernando Abad were recalled. In
further injury news Stephen Strasburg was placed on the 15-day DL for his lat
strain. The move was retroactive to June 1 so Stras is eligible to return on
June 16. Rainouts and the likely return of Ross Detwiler next week should rid
the Nats of needing to call up another starter to fill out the rotation. A
rainout on both Thursday and Friday should leave the Nats well rested and ready
to get their record to over .500 and begin the process of whittling down the
Braves lead in the NL East.

The Twins come to Washington sporting a 26-31
record, having won seven of their last ten but most recently dropped two
straight to the Royals. Their offense ranks 22nd in OPS at .700, and
they have a bunch of hitters who as a team walk nearly 9% of the time, good for
6th in MLB but they also strike out 20.8% of the time which is in
the bottom 1/3 of MLB. Offense is where the positives tail off for the Twins, their
starting rotation has the third worst ERA (5.27) and sixth worst FIP (4.84)
while having the worst K/9 in baseball at 4.33. The Twins also rank last in
defense, having posted a -18.5 UZR as a team through the first 1/3 of the
season.

Former
Giant, Padre and Pirate Kevin Correia will get the start on Saturday for the
Twins. As has been the case with him for the majority of his career, Correia
has been fairly unspectacular this season; accounting for a 0 WAR over 11
starts 4.09 ERA (5.24 FIP). The peripherals are even worse, specifically his
K/9 as he’s only managing to strike out 3.71 batters per nine innings, good for
dead last among qualified starting pitchers. He’s made it through the sixth
inning in all but three starts this year, including his most recent two. He’s
also allowed nine homeruns in his last 23.2 IP, so just over a home run every
2.2 IP.

Correia
throws everything but the kitchen sink, and none of it has been particularly
effective so far this year. He carries a Slider (84-90, 88 avg), Four-Seam
Fastball (87-93, 90 avg), Changeup (83-88, 86 avg), Two-Seam Fastball (88-93,
90 avg), Curveball (76-80, 78 avg), and occasionally throws a Cutter (87-91, 90
avg).

In 13 career appearances (6
starts) against Washington, Correia is 3-3 with a 3.33 ERA and a 1.253 WHIP.
Current Nats have combined for a .726 OPS against him with Adam LaRoche (1.147
OPS, 27 PA’s) and Jayson Werth (.785 OPS, 13 PA’s) leading the way.

After an
inconsistent April left him with a 5.34 ERA (4.13 FIP) Gio has been much
better; compiling a 2.27 ERA since the calendar turned to May. Over that same
period Gio has held opposing batters to just a .545 OPS over 39.2 IP. In his
most recent outing, at Atlanta he went seven strong innings allowing one run on
three hits and a walk while striking out seven.

Gio has had six career
starts against the Twins and emerged with a 2-3 record, a 7.80 ERA and a 1.867
WHIP. In 31 PA’s against current Twins he hasn’t fared much better as they hold
a combined .894 OPS against Gio. The two Twins with the most success are the
two you’d suspect: Justin Morneau with a 2.100 OPS in 6 PA’s and Joe Mauer with
a .786 OPS over 14 PA’s.

Former
highly touted prospect Scott Diamond, while having a perfect name for baseball,
has not been good this season. His most recent outing against Seattle was a six-inning
shutout while allowing four hits and striking out three. It was also his first
quality start in five attempts. After the promising start against the Mariners,
opposing hitters are still combining for an .847 OPS against him this season
while Diamond is only striking out a paltry 4.18 per nine innings.

Diamond throws a Fastball
(84-91, 88 avg), Curveball (77-85, 81 avg) and a Changeup (80-86, 83 avg). He
has never faced the Nats and the only current National to face him is Kurt
Suzuki.

Making
his third start since being called up to take the place of an injured Ross
Detwiler, Nathan Karns hasn’t pitched particularly well. Obviously small sample
size warning here, in his two Major League starts he’s yet to make it through
the fifth inning, compiling a 6.00 ERA (7.85 FIP), 1.67 WHIP and a 4.00 HR/9.
The homeruns will certainly normalize downwards, but the line as a whole has
not been impressive thus far. His most recent outing saw him go 4.1 innings
while giving up three runs on five hits (two homeruns). As Karns has only made
two starts he has not faced the Twins or any current Twins.
    

Game 62: Sunday, June 9, Nationals
Park 7:05pm, Samuel Deduno, RHP (2-1, 3.44 ERA) vs. Jordan  Zimmermann, RHP (8-3,
2.16 ERA)

Despite
getting shelled by the Tigers in his season debut on May 24, Dominican World
Baseball Classic hero Samuel Deduno has put together two very solid starts in
his most recent outings against Milwaukee and Kansas City. The outing against
the Royals included six innings of shutout ball, while only allowing four hits
and two walks while striking out five.

Deduno throws a Fastball

The
rock of the rotation since day one of the 2013 season, Jordan Zimmermann had
one hiccup of a game against Baltimore. He bounced right back against the Mets
in his most recent outing with eight innings of four hit ball, allowing two
unearned runs while striking out four. This will be his first chance at facing
the Twins with the only player on their roster to have faced Jordan being Mike
Pelfrey.
