2 Newly Available Bats that May Interest the Twins

The Minnesota Twins are staring down the potential departures of their two most established run producers this winter, with a key decision on Eddie Rosario looming in a few days.

Should they be seeking out power bats to replace these lineup fixtures, the Twins may take interest in couple of righty sluggers that unexpectedly hit the market over the past week.

Which of These Free-Agent Contracts Makes Most Sense for the Twins?

In this video, I take a look at which of the free-agent contracts predicted by the staff of MLB Trade Rumors would make the most sense for the Twins.

Avoiding the Aces

There’s an influx of high end pitchers becoming available on the trade market from Blake Snell to Sonny Gray this offseason and it’s natural to dream of the Twins landing the big fish in the trade market. While it’s fun to consider the Twins acquiring a ready made star pitcher on the trade market, they would likely be better off not doing so.

Black Friday Sale: Cheap Players Who Could Make a Difference

Black Friday’s here and there are some deals the Twins shouldn’t miss! You won’t need to stand outside at 3 a.m. waiting for the doors to open, rather a phone call to the three players covered in this article during business hours will probably go over better than knocking on their door at 5 a.m.

Twins Extension Candidate: Kenta Maeda

Teams can approach contracts in a multitude of ways. Do you sign a young player before arbitration to buy out some more years of team control? Do you extend a current player to keep him in the organization? Do you reward a player for an exceptional year on the field? It’s a balancing act to make the right choice for an organization and Kenta Maeda certainly provides an interesting choice for the Twins.

Twins Extension Candidate: Michael Pineda

Minnesota, like many teams, is constantly searching for big-league pitching depth. Last winter, the Twins headed into the offseason looking to add multiple players to their rotation. Pineda was disappointed in how his season ended in 2019 and it seems natural that he wanted to make it up to the Twins. Now, he is again heading back to free agency, so what would it take to keep him in Minnesota?

Twins Extension Candidate: Byron Buxton

There are certainly high expectations when a player is taken second overall in the MLB Draft. This is the case with Byron Buxton as he was considered the best prospect in baseball for multiple seasons. Things aren’t as shiny now that he has played multiple big-league seasons. Injuries have been part of his professional career so how can the Twins find the right balance while keeping Buxton in a Twins uniform in the years to come.

Thinking Big: The Twins and Really Tall Pitchers

Bailey Ober, added to Minnesota's 40-man roster a few days ago, is set to become the latest in a long line of Twins pitchers that are really, really tall.

It's a running fascination that traces back through several different front office configurations. Let's explore the recent history of towering Twins hurlers.

Twins Extension Candidate: Jose Berrios

Extensions can be tough especially for players that have grown and developed in one organization. There is a connection between the player, the team, and the fans. When the Twins drafted Jose Berrios, there was an emotional moment as he was surrounded by many of the people that helped to make his dream a reality. Now he is heading for a life-changing contract that may or may not be coming from the Minnesota Twins.

Twins Extension Candidate: Alex Kirilloff

In recent years, the Twins have done a good job of locking up multiple parts of their young core. Jorge Polanco, Max Kepler, and Miguel Sano will all be in a Twins uniform for at least the next two years with multiple options that can be exercised. With an eye to the future, here is one other player Minnesota can look to extend this winter.
