In 2009, Mark Reynolds set the single season mark with 223 strikeouts in a season. It should be noted that he hit 44 HR’s that year, had an OPS of .892 and finished 20th in the MVP voting.

Here is quick look at some Twins pace given Reynolds 662 AB’s he had in 2009:

Byron Buxton, on pace for 352 strikeouts (53.3% k rate). .497 OPS.

How did we get here?

The 2011-2014 swoon led to a lot of high draft picks . And the losses forced the Twins to look into the future and move veterans like Span and Revere for prospects. While it is ideal for a rebuilding team to time when all their prospects reach the big show, it has worked out a little too nice for the Twins. We find ourselves with too...

When will Buxton be called up?

He is ripping up AA (.880 OPS, 3 HR, 5 3B, 7 SB).

We have seen Terry move position players quicker, like Santana, Vargas, Arcia, and Hicks. We have a need in CF. And I think they would love a little extra buzz this year.

I think after the super 2 deadline he is up.

-Address our real needs of OF defense and starting pitching

Starting Rotation
