The New York Yankees have been on an absolute tear to start the month of June. They’ve completed consecutive series sweeps against the LA Angels and Detroit. Difficulty ramps up a bit as they travel to face the AL Central-leading Minnesota Twins in a three-game weekday series.
After the first few months of the season, the AL Central tends to look the weakest. Despite Minnesota having some inconsistent results lately, they are still well ahead of rest of the division. Heading into this series, no other team is above .500 other than the Twins.
The Yankees continue pulling away in the AL East. Toronto has rebounded in recent weeks, and Boston is currently on a 5-game winning streak heading into Tuesday night. But the Yankees still are at the top by a wide margin. In this 6-game winning streak, they have allowed just 7 total runs.

For the Twins, they’ll have someone else in place of Bailey Ober on Tuesday night. The original starter is out indefinitely with a groin injury. Kyle Garlick has missed a few games with a mild hamstring issue and he is currently designated as questionable to start the series.
Player Props for Yankees vs. Twins
When selecting one of these props, you’ll find great welcome offers for new users at these top New York sportsbooks.
Judge now has 62 total hits, which is 16 more than the next-best Yankee. If you knew that second player was Isiah Kiner-Falefa (46 hits), then you’re a true die-hard fan. In 3 games against the Tigers, Judge had 6 hits, 3 RBIs, and 2 home runs.
Stanton made his return against Detroit on Saturday, going 1-for-4 with a double and 2 strikeouts. He didn’t start in the following game, but he should be ready to go this week.
LeMahieu has certainly bounced back during the winning streak. He went 0-for-3 against the series finale against the Tigers, but before that, he’s collected 7 total hits and 6 RBIs since May 28.
