I'll be interested in the order of the rotation and if they don't use a a fifth starter in April.
The way I see it as well, everyone healthy and nobody just stinking up the joint. Hughes is on the outside looking in until he can prove he is 100%, has his fastball back plus his control, endurance, etc. I just can't see him breaking with the Twins. I see extended training for him followed by milb rehab to build himself up in game situations. And then we'll see. I'm hopeful for the guy, I just think this is reality.
A few positive spins on the projected rotation?
1] a pair of young arms in Berrios and May.
2] I don't care what Nolasco does going forward. He was a bad fit. I'don't rather have Santiago, and his numbers, and the way he finished his 2016.
3] I've seen the Twins put out worse rotations, lacking any growth potential, than this one.
