The Twins have also hit 12 more home runs with projected distances between 430-438 ft. Nelson Cruz has three of them, Miguel Sano and Marwin Gonzalez have two and there's one each from Jonathan Schoop, Byron Buxton, Max Kepler, C.J. Cron and Jake Cave.

 

Seems odd that Eddie Rosario's longest home run so far this season is just 421 ft. Jason Castro leads the Twins with an average home run distance of 421 ft.
