Sizing Up Cody Allen

After reaching agreement with all of their arbitration eligible players last week, the Twins have solidified their projected 2019 payroll at around $96 million. That's about $30M below where they were last year (which was just below the MLB average), so needless to say they've got spending flexibility.

The back end of the bullpen is the clearest need, and in that market, one name stands out as a fairly obvious fit.

Where Are We Now?

On Monday, the Twins Winter Caravan began. Twins broadcasters and some players will travel the Upper Midwest this week and next week. Late next week is the Diamond Awards, Twins Fest and the Twins Daily Winter Meltdown. And at that point, we will be two weeks from the start of spring training. What do the Twins roster and payroll look like today? And what does that mean for the team’s 2019 chances? What moves remain?

Mailbag: Wahoos Line-Up, Leadership, Buxton's Progress

Last week, I examined a handful of burning questions from all corners of Twins Territory. Topics included Minnesota's use of an opener, Sano's legal situation at home, trading Byron Buxton, and Kirilloff's potential MLB debut.

This week's mailbag has even more great topics. Make sure to follow me on Twitter so you can be part of the next Twins Daily mailbag. Let's open some of this week's mail.

I think even the Twins’ harshest critics would have to admit that the Twins minor league system is stronger and deeper than it was just two years ago, or even just last year.

Very soon, the 2019 Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook will be available. Check back to Twins Daily later this week to find out how you can purchase the book. Below, find out more about what you will be able to find in the 2019 edition.

Relevant Reflections From Michael Cuddyer's Playing Career

Today at Twins Daily we are excited to announce that Michael Cuddyer will be our special guest at the Winter Meltdown, now less than two weeks away. (Last-chance tickets go on sale Tuesday morning.)

For a couple of reasons, Cuddyer feels like a fitting choice to have on-stage as we look ahead to the 2019 season. The story of his playing career holds acute relevance for this year's team.

Can the Twins Be Competitive With Their Current Bullpen?

The MLB offseason is far from over. It’s possible the Twins could sign Adam Ottavino or Cody Allen in the coming days, I’d be glad if that happened, but for the purpose of this article let’s just assume the club is willing to head to spring training only with the current available arms. Is this group of relievers good enough to take Minnesota’s bullpen to the next level?

Meltdown Countdown: Pick & Shovel Prize Pack + Panel Announced

The Winter Meltdown is for gathering, and we especially appreciate those attendees that connect with others. So this year, we’ll reward some attendee with a monster gift basket from Pick & Shovel, just for finding the guts to talk to strangers. Plus, we’re happy to announce one of our baseball panels. But you can’t win if you don’t attend, so make sure you’re here on Tuesday morning at 8:00 AM to get some of the limited tickets.
