Catching Up with Twins RHP Prospect Dakota Chalmers

In November, the Minnesota Twins added five players to their 40-man roster. One of those players was right-handed pitcher Dakota Chalmers. This past weekend at Target Field, we caught up with the hard-throwing 23-year-old about the whirlwind of his career since joining the Twins in August 2018.

Are the Twins Ready for No Pineda, No Hill, No Impact Starter to Begin 2020?

The Minnesota Twins are starting the season without their full complement of preferred starters. Just what is ahead of the Twins until Michael Pineda returns from suspension and can they weather whatever storm could head their way?

Minnesota’s Previous Front Offices Deserve Credit For Current Core

The Twins won over 100 games last season for only the second time in franchise history. Free agent additions like Nelson Cruz, Jake Odorizzi and Marwin Gonzalez helped to bolster the team, but the majority of the players were developed through the Twins' minor league system. The tenure of former general managers Terry Ryan and Bill Smith isn’t always looked on with fondness, but their impact on the current roster is still being felt.

Michael Pineda's Numbers Tell Two Different Stories

Michael Pineda is a big guy with a power pitcher's reputation, but quietly, he's become much more dependent on command and control. Luckily, there's evidence that he has some of the best of each in all of baseball.

Fernando Romero: The Forgotten Flamethrower

The hype train is in full gear for the Minnesota Twins 2020 relief corps. Last Thursday night at the Diamond Awards, manager Rocco Baldelli opined that it's the best bullpen in baseball right now – a perfectly defensible claim.

Bolstered by Brusdar Graterol's now-confirmed inclusion, this unit is loaded with emerging high-powered arms and proven veteran performers. One major wild-card, however, tends to get left out of the conversation.

Projected Minnesota Twins 2020 Statistical Leaders Per ZiPS

Now, more than ever before, baseball fans have all of the numbers in the world at their fingertips in order to reflect on what has happened in the past as well as project what will happen in the future. Let’s discuss what the projections say about the Minnesota Twins statistical leaders in 2020.

The Twins Should Finish the Offseason by Adding Taijuan Walker

The Twins obviously still have at least two question marks in their rotation and with the offseason coming to an end it wouldn’t hurt to add some depth. Taijuan Walker gives you that depth with a lot of added upside. Walker should be the finishing touch on this Twins offseason.

How Good Can the Twins Defense Become in 2020?

Last year, one of the few things the Twins were pretty bad at was their defense, especially on the infield. While signing Josh Donaldson may have been a huge step toward improving that, there are still some question marks. Here are five questions I thought are worth being asked.

Under The Radar: Bullpen Breakouts

We went from pulling out our pitchforks at the sight of the bullpen lineup to being downright optimistic about it by the end of 2019 as Ted laid out earlier this week. We seemingly saw more pitchers take steps forward than in any year in recent memory across the organization. Some pitchers like Taylor Rogers had their trajectory pointing toward a career year in 2019. Others like Tyler Duffey emerged from a questionable past and future. It's stories like Duffey's that keep baseball fans guessing. A fringe MLB pitcher turned elite seemingly out of nowhere. It's the system he was in however that unlocked his talent, and there just might be more unlikely aces to emerge in this Twins bullpen in 2020.

On Rich Hill's Experimental Elbow Surgery and Previous Injury History

The Minnesota Twins entered the 2020 offseason with big plans, building a roster capable of springboarding off the success of the 2019 season — one of the single greatest seasons in team history — being at the forefront.

Projection: How Many Bombas will the Twins Hit in 2020?

2019 was the year of the Bomba form the Minnesota Twins, as they set a Major League record with 307 home runs as a team. Assuming that Major League Baseball decides to go back to not using the “juiced” baseballs this season, it is fair to assume, that there will be a decent drop in home runs league wide in 2020. With that being the case, let’s take a look at the Twins 2020 roster, and project the number of home runs they will hit this year.
