    On Saturday morning, I chatted with Twins outfielder Aaron Whitefield about a variety of topics, including getting a big-league opportunity. Join the conversation live on the Twins Daily Twitter, Facebook or

    The Twins signed outfielder Aaron Whitefield out of Australia despite very limited baseball experience. He was a star fast-pitch softball player and represented his country internationally in that sport.


    He's a great athlete with lots of tools, and he's gradually worked his way up the Twins organizational ladder. He reached Double-A Pensacola in 2019. He was likely headed there to start 2020, and then came a global pandemic.


    However, Whitefield was a surprise late addition to the Twins Summer Camp in July, and he made the Twins Opening Day roster. His big-league time was short-lived, but even in his two games played, his most elite tools were on display.


    Aaron Whitefield is fast. Really fast. And he's very good in centerfield. He also runs the bases well.


    Find out more about Whitefield, his story, and what else he's got going on Twins Spotlight.

    Nice job again Seth. Interesting Aaron thinking of super utility position, sounds very athletic, fast and possibly ready defensively, but needs bat improve. Handled being released well and sounds like likes Twins organization. Will be watching his progress.
