Get To Know: Twins Infield Prospect Daniel Ozoria

On Tuesday, the Twins announced that they had acquired middle infielder Daniel Ozoria from the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. In exchange, the Twins sent hard-throwing reliever John Curtiss who had been designated for assignment a day earlier to make room for Blake Parker. Today you can get to know a little more about the newest member of the Minnesota Twins organization.

Hildenberger Preparing for Another Heavy Workload

The Twins may lead the league in candidates for Comeback Player of the Year. Up and down the roster and all over the diamond you can find guys coming off disappointing seasons who you can pin high hopes on for 2019. That being the case, Trevor Hildenberger has gone somewhat overlooked. It’s easy to forget just how good he was for the Twins prior to his second-half struggles last year.


Making a Machado Bid

For the second year in a row, the free agent market has been slower than molasses in January. Big name free agents like Bryce Harper, Manny Machado, and Dallas Keuchel remain unsigned. Spring training is looming on the horizon and these high caliber players are going to need to sign somewhere.

So, let’s imagine a world where the Twins could make a bid for Manny Machado.


Now Available! 2019 Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook

UPDATE- The 2019 Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook is now available!

Paperback versions of the 161 page book will cost $17.99 this year.

Electronic version will be available for $12.99. It is a PDF that will be available to download immediately.

For more information on the handbook,, please read below.


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.


The Meltdown Is Sold Out, But You Can Still Get A Free Ticket

The Winter Meltdown is sold out, but you can still get tickets AND honor Joe Mauer AND support a good cause. Just join Joe, Twins Daily writers and Twins players and staff in fighting some terrible diseases by attending the 2019 Diamond Awards. John and other Twins Daily writers will host exclusive Twins Daily table(s), PLUS each attendee gets a VIP ticket to the Winter Meltdown two nights later. Yes, even if you got shutout for Winter Meltdown tickets, you can get one free. Here’s how.


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.


Meltdown Countdown: Sold Out!

We're sorry, but we're sold out! Thank you to those who bought tickets and we'll see you along with Michael Cuddyer, the new Twins beat writers, two free 612 Brew craft beers, the free pint glass, drink specials, Pick & Shovel prize pack, autographed prizes, and pizza swag. This is going to be the best Winter Meltdown yet.


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.


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.
