About this blog

I’ve done some research on one specific player that will likely have a big impact on not only 2023 but in the next few years as well, Alex Kirilloff, the very first draft pick of the Thad Levine and Derek Falvey regime, let’s take a deeper dive into why he is viewed as a core piece for years to come for the Minnesota Twins.

Does Alex Reyes Make Sense for the Twins?

The St. Louis Cardinals non-tendered their once top prospect; since then, there has been little news regarding Alex Reyes. The former all-star has seen a lack of reported interest so far in free agency and could be a fit for any team looking for relief help, meaning every team. There are several reasons to and not to sign Alex Reyes. I want to examine his current outlook to see if he is a fit for the Minnesota Twins.  Feature Image Via Jeff Curry - USA Today Sports  The first thing you

What if the Twins Didn't Trade Max Kepler?

With Kyle Garlick being dfa'd and Gilberto Celestino being far from reliable, who should the Minnesota Twins have as their bench outfielder? Free agent options such as A.J. Pollock and Andrew McCutchen have signed elsewhere; options are becoming thin for the Twins. Adam Duvall and Tommy Pham are available, but both are 34 years old and could be nearing the end of their time in the Big Leagues. I want to look at one option still in-house that could fill this role for 2023 that would be a practica

What do we Make of Gilberto Celestino

Given the copious injuries the Minnesota Twins dealt with last season, one player that was given as ample an opportunity as anyone was center fielder Gilberto Celestino. Unfortunately, he did not exactly take advantage of it, however, it wasn’t a complete failure either. While the season for Celestino probably didn’t go as well as he or the Twins would have hoped, there were positives to take from it. What is the outlook for Celestino going forward? An everyday player? Maybe a platoon player? St

Willi Castro might be more Familiar than you Think

The Minnesota Twins recently signed Willi Castro to a minor league contract. He will not be the opening day shortstop, he likely won’t make the team, and in a perfect world, he probably never sees the Big Leagues in 2023. Having experienced a very not perfect 2022, Castro provides depth in several positions and has some intriguing skills worth noting. While digging, I found some interesting things about Castro that I would like to share and found him a more familiar player than I initially thoug

Do the Minnesota Twins have 2 Joey Gallo's?

In my previous piece I talked about how Alex Kirilloff may fit into the Minnesota Twins’ long term plans and what his outlook could be in the Major Leagues. For this article I want to look at the Twins other touted corner outfield prospect, one who has spent much of his professional career being compared to Kirilloff; Trevor Larnach.  Trevor Larnach is another player the Twins likely view as a core piece as they build for 2023 and beyond. Making a name for himself for his refined approach a

Can Alex Kirilloff be what the Twins are Hoping For?

After missing out on a number of big time free agents the Minnesota Twins may now have to rely on some talented, yet very unproven young players in their organization. While there is no doubt more moves are to come from the front office, they have entrusted the future of the franchise into some players they hope can be the core of the team moving forward. I’ve done some research on one specific player that will likely have a big impact on not only 2023 but in the next few years as well, Alex Kir
