Jose Berrios has been dominant in his first two outings this season for the Minnesota Twins. He’s looked so good that he has one of his opponents comparing him to the late Jose Fernandez. Here’s what Colorado Rockies first baseman Ian Desmond said about Berrios after Thursday’s game. Desmond would know, as he used to face the Miami Marlins stud when he was in the NL East as a member of the Washington Nationals. And with the stuff Berrios displayed — his sweeping breaking ball was awesome — the comparison makes sense. Berrios struck out 11 Rockies over 7.2 scoreless innings. He allowed just two hits and one walk while picking up his second win.
