Lewis and Kirilloff are blocked by Donaldson, Polanco, Arraez and Sano. Without a trade or an injury, I don’t see an opening for our top prospects. Maybe, Lewis starts more in center field. Maybe Twins plan to trade prospects for pitching at MLB and MiLB level.
I continue to struggle with these type of viewpoints.
We all watched 2019 happen.
We watched Baldelli get every position player on the roster into the lineup last year.
We saw approximately zero damage to the team while Rocco was working everyone into the lineup.
We set a home run record while Rocco was working everyone into the lineup.
We won 101 games while Rocco was working everyone into the lineup.
Astudilo was not on the 25 man roster for half the season (80 games) due to injury and a 2 week stint in AAA.
Yet, Astudillo still started 44 games out of 82 games.
Why are Lewis and Kiriloff blocked?
