Top-Tier Talent: Already in Minnesota?

The Twins won with a roster of players ranging from solid to fantastic in 2019 and will return in 2020 with much of the same. While being a powerhouse in 2019, the Twins could ascend into full blown juggernaut status on the backs of a few players reaching their ceilings. Three such players stand out as the most obvious to take this step.

This Season, More Than Ever, Athlete Health Will Determine The Twins' Success

New Minnesota Twins’ starting pitcher Rich Hill had just wrapped up his first session of long toss when he realized that he was in a good spot.

“I’ve been fortunate that there weren't any issues from the onset,” Hill said regarding the quasi-experimental elbow surgery he underwent last fall to address a partially torn left UCL. “I would say probably right after the first time I played long toss I really felt like ‘Ok, this is something that I’m not really going to have too many issues with moving forward.’”

What Are You Most Looking Forward to for the 2020 Minnesota Twins?

There’s plenty to be excited for in Twins Territory. The fact that we’re getting a season at all (I knocked) is reason enough to be elated and the wait should make baseball all the sweeter. Luckily we’ve also got a really good team.

The 3 Scariest Stretches on the 2020 Twins Schedule

In a 60-game season, where each game essentially counts as a series, slumps will be devastating. While the Twins have the softest schedule in baseball, there are still a few spots that loom as potential traps.

Hindsight is 20/20: 4 Players the Twins Could've Avoided Facing by Signing

They say hindsight is 20/20, but no one could have predicted 2020. Although the offseason and spring training felt like centuries ago, there were numerous free agent signings that the Twins had hoped for that, much like the 2020 season, didn’t exactly go as planned.

The Twins Are on, but What’s Changed?

For the first time since March 11 we have a live Twins baseball game. While it’s still just an intrasquad exhibition, that’s not much less than what Spring Training contests boil down to. At this point we’re calling it Summer Camp, and with the season quickly approaching, Minnesota is dealing with a whole new set of circumstances.

Minnesota Twins Release 2021 Schedule: Will It Happen?

The Twins 2020 schedule was only released last week and now MLB has released the 2021 schedule with the thought that teams will be able to play 162-games. This might be a big assumption on the part of MLB because it will like only happen, if there is a widely available COVID-19 vaccine. The current season is in jeopardy because of the current state of our nation. However, let’s take a dive into the 2021 season and see what it could mean for your potential 2020 World Series Champions and their chances for a repeat.

Rest for Success

Mitch Garver put up some incredible statistics in 2019. He greatly improved his defensive abilities through a ton of hard and focused work. He also kept working on his offensive approach, and for it, he was named the American League’s Silver Slugger Award as the league’s top hitting catcher. What might we expect from the backstop in 2020?

Trevor May, Sliders, and Slime Mold

The last two months of 2019 saw Trevor May emerge as a dominant set-up man in the Twins’ bullpen. From August 1 through the end of the season, May not only had a 1.38 ERA, but held opponents to a pathetic .125/.181/.273 batting line. He fanned 34 of the 94 batters he faced, and walked just six. Of the 333 pitchers who threw at least 300 pitches during that span, May allowed the fourth-lowest weighted on-base average.

Byron Buxton Primed for Big Impact in Short-Burst Season

Up to this point, Byron Buxton has shown he can catch anything. Except a break.

A major-league career that's been characterized by setbacks and shutdowns was on track to open with another one in 2020, as the center fielder had been expected to miss the start of the season, but now fortune has finally turned in Buxton's favor.
