Jake cave Jake cave has a chance to be the next dozier.. as in a blue collar guy getting a chance at 25 and late round pick.. though he wasn't draft by the twins.. he was by the Yankees which would make it even better if he turns out to be the player I think he'll be. He brings good depth to the out field and gives the twins time to just let Buxton heal up.. but I think Jake cave can be that unexpected power hitter like dozier and bring that fire to the team. With that old school type of play. Hell do good buuut in like 4 years will probably trade him for prospects haha.. I think he has chance to be a 25 to 30 home run guy and he seems humbled one thing I like about dozier.. generally for the most part in twins history we've for the most part get really humbled players. Good for the locker room. But yea go get em Jake cave! I predicting he'll hit 104 homers the 4 year with us. If we keep him that long.




I predicting he'll hit 104 homers the 4 year with us. If we keep him that long.

I will bet a good chunk of money on the under.That's 26 HR per year, and I would bet the under if 26 was line for his single-season high for his career. 

 

He's having a pretty good year this year, and he has 3 HR.I see his upside as adequate 4th OF.

Remember, we also have Zack Granite waiting in the wings. He won't hit for power, but he will hit for average & OBP.
