Hangout and Talk Twins: 40-man Review

Twins right-handed prospect Alex Meyer is set to join the Twins Hangouts podcast tonight at 9:00 central time. He was one of four Twins minor leaguers that were added to the Twins 40-man roster. Meyer, along with Miguel Sano, Alex Meyer, Eddie Rosario and Jason Wheeler filled out the Twins 40 man roster.

Tonight at 9 pm, Seth and Jeremy will discuss the additions of these players as well as the omissions of others.


Twins Winter League Updates

Twins Daily would like to thank Steve Lien for giving us weekly updates of the Arizona Fall League. Today, I wanted to provide Twins Daily readers an update on what is happening in the other winter leagues.


Twins Taking A Close Look At Justin Masterson

By now you are aware that the Minnesota Twins have some level of interest in free agent pitcher Justin Masterson.

The big-bodied Masterson is an ideal rebound candidate -- he is only 30 years old, he has big ground ball numbers, solid strikeout rates, averaged 199 innings per season from 2010 to 2013 while working 6.2 innings per start, big BABIP numbers are primed for regression and so on. You know, all the stuff that made Phil Hughes so amazing. On the other hand, because of his delivery and repertoire, he has never fared well against left-handed opponents and he had some shoulder ailments at the end of the 2014 season.

The Twins front office will tell you that they are doing due diligence on all the available options, not just Masterson. Beyond the reasons above, here is a more in-depth look at what to expect from him in 2015.


The Case For Brett Anderson (Again)

I feel like I've written this article before. Maybe that's because I have.

A year ago, Brett Anderson looked like a good target for the Twins to pursue. This time around, because of his circumstances -- and the team's -- he seems like an even more logical fit.

Will Terry Ryan feel the same way? And if so, what will it cost to bring in the left-hander?


Twins Minor League Report: AFL Week 6

It was about a week ago when the Minnesota Twins AFL team, the Salt River Rafters, clinched their spot in league championship game, but they still had a few games left to play before that.

Eddie Rosario entered the season’s final week with a chance at a batting title, and two relief pitching prospects had yet to allow a run in a league play. How did they finish?


Twins Hangouts: 40-man Preview

Seth and Jeremy took a week off but return to discuss the Twins pending 40-man roster decisions, arbitration decisions, Twins coaches, Twins rumors, and much more. They tried to keep the show to 30 minutes... but failed. But, only by three minutes. Check out the condensed Twins Hangouts podcast and let us know what you thikn.

You can also check out Seth's preview.


Who Should the Twins Add to their 40-Man?

Might as well kill the lead right here in the first paragraph. When the Twins announce the players that they are adding to their 40-man roster on (or before) Thursday, we will see the names Alex Meyer, Miguel Sano and Eddie Rosario. Will the Twins choose to add any more than those three? We’ll find out then, but for a look at who all is eligible, keep reading.


NoDak Twins Fan Offseason Blueprint

The Twins Daily Offseason Handbook was released a few weeks ago and still available. We always encourage readers to develop their own blueprint for the Twins offseason. Today, Cody Christie shares his blueprint with us. We set up a special forum for Twins Daily readers to post their own blueprints here.


Early Offseason Rumors

The offseason is underway, and although we've already seen a couple notable signings, most analysts are expecting the free agent market to develop slowly this year.

Still, with the door now open, conversations are beginning to take place as we build toward the MLB Winter Meetings, which are three weeks away.

Let's take a look at the early Twins-related rumblings.

Salt River Rafters Claim AFL Title Behind Bat of Eddie Rosario

The Arizona Fall League season came to a close with the championship game on Saturday, with the West Division champion Peoria Javelinas facing the East Division champion Salt River Rafters, the team for which Minnesota Twins prospects play.


Jordan Schafer: Breakout or Bust

Jordan Schafer is at his 4th stop having moved from Atlanta to Houston to Atlanta prior to being claimed by Minnesota. He enters next season as a 28 year old with a significant 1398 plate appearances. Is there a chance that the once highly rated prospect can turn it around at age 28? Has it happened before?
