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.

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.

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.

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.

How Jose Berrios Used Video To Regain Confidence

Jose Berrios rattled off an exhaustive list of mechanical issues to reporters after a particularly disappointing outing late last year.

He told them he wasn’t staying in his heel long enough. He wasn’t rotating his chest quick enough. His front shoulder was flying open. It was a lot of cues to think about each night on the rubber.
