Berrios (2-1) worked seven scoreless innings Wednesday, striking out five and allowing three hits in the win over the Indians. He did not factor into the decision.
Berrios matched zeroes with Cleveland starter Carlos Carrasco through seven innings before the bullpens took over in what turned out to be a 16-inning affair. The 23-year-old could've potentially gone deeper, as he sat at just 84 pitches when he came out. It was also the third straight start he didn't issue a free pass, putting his K:BB at a ridiculous 29:1. One poor start against Seattle is all that's working against his ratios -- though his ERA and WHIP still sit at a minuscule 1.63 and 0.58, respectively -- but he's gone at least seven shutout innings in his other three starts. He'll look to stay hot when he takes the hill Monday against the Yankees.
Carrasco's start Wednesday against the Twins in San Juan, Puerto Rico will happen as planned despite the general power outage on the island, Marly Rivera of ESPN reports.
Hiram Bithorn Stadium is less affected by the power outage than the rest of the island, as it's equipped with generators which can run for 48 hours. Puerto Rico Series Director of Operations John Blakeman is confident that the game will be unaffected, saying, "We are fully prepared," so expect Berrios to be able to make his scheduled start unless further reports come out that indicate otherwise. The young righty is off to an excellent start to the season, with a 2.18 ERA, a 32.0 percent strikeout rate and a 1.3 percent walk rate through 20.2 innings.
Berrios will start Wednesday's game against the Indians in Puerto Rico.
The Twins' pitching schedule has been in flux after the entire three-game series this weekend against the White Sox was postponed due to inclement weather in Minnesota, but Berrios was always believed to be in line for a start either Tuesday or Wednesday in Puerto Rico, his native country. He'll take the hill for the second game of the two-game set, resulting in Lance Lynn and Kyle Gibson getting their next starts pushed back to next weekend.
Berrios (2-1) got the win in a dominant showing against the White Sox on Thursday, giving up three hits over seven innings, striking out 11 and walking none in Minnesota's 4-0 victory.
After giving up five runs against the Mariners in his last outing, Berrios was brilliant in this one, baffling the White Sox to the tune of 11 punch-outs on 99 pitches. The dud against Seattle hasn't put a dent in what has been a ridiculous start for the 23-year-old right-hander, who now sports a 2.18 ERA and a microscopic 0.63 WHIP in part thanks to a stellar 24:1 K:BB through his first 20.1 innings. It's still too early to declare this a breakout campaign but if Berrios continues to light it up like this, he could very well be headed for one.
Berrios (1-1) took the loss against the Mariners on Saturday, giving up five runs on six hits over 4.2 innings while striking out seven.
He actually held Seattle hitless through the first three innings, but the chilly conditions -- the temperature at first pitch was 27 degrees, a record low for an MLB game in Minnesota -- eventually got to Berrios. The 23-year-old still has an impressive 13:1 K:BB through his first 13.2 innings this season, and he'll look to rebound Thursday at home against the White Sox.
