In this week's episode, you will see two guys with different pathways to the big leagues.

AJ Achter was drafted in a round that doesn't even exist anymore.

Royce Lewis was the first overall pick in the 2017 draft.



AJ Achter worked his way up the ladder and pitched in parts of three major-league seasons.

Royce Lewis is working his way up the Twins ladder.

We talked to Achter about his time in a Twins unirform and his path to the big leagues. We talked about his relationship with teammates and some of the impressive teammates that he has had. We also talked about his transition from player to pitching coach at Eastern Michigan University.

We talked to Royce Lewis about his spring training, what he worked on this offseason and many random questions about his life away from baseball.

I haven't listened to the podcast yet, but my first thought after reading the headline for this article was: What are Twins doing now? Are they doing another Pat Dean and bringing back another marginal pitcher like A.J. Achter? And then I saw the part about him being a college coach. Whew!

Time for predictions?
"Twins for now."
86 wins says I.
