As we hit Week 11 of the 2019 MLB season, the Los Angeles Dodgers have continued their dominance of the NL West, opening up a double-digit lead in the division. The Minnesota Twins and Houston Astros have similar leads in the AL Central and AL West, respectively, while the AL East, NL East, and NL Central are as tight as they can be at the top.
If you need some help with your Week 11 MLB survivor picks, The Duel releases weekly picks to help you win your survivor pool. Here are three survivor picks for what is shaping up as a tough Week 11 of the MLB season.
3. New York Yankees
The New York Yankees are more of a unique pick in Week 11, as they'll likely need to start off with a sweep to come through for most in survivor pools. That's because they open with a two-game series against the New York Mets at home, but likely won't have to face Jacob deGrom in either game. After that, the Yankees just have to take care of business on the road against the Chicago White Sox in a four-game set.
2. Boston Red Sox
The Boston Red Sox open up the week with a four-game series against the Texas Rangers at home in Fenway Park, and will likely need to secure three wins against a surprisingly good Rangers' team. If they can get the best of the Rangers early, it would put the Sox in great position to end the week strong in a three-game set against one of the league's worst teams in the Baltimore Orioles.
1. Minnesota Twins
The Minnesota Twins arguably make the most sense for MLB survivor pools in Week 11, as one of the hottest teams in the league with the luxury of playing all their games at home. The Twins, who lead the AL Central by nearly 10 games over the Cleveland Indians, open with a four-game series against the skidding Seattle Mariners, before finishing with a three-game set against the Kansas City Royals.
