Do the Twins Have Too Many Starting Pitchers for 2023? in Twins Daily Front Page News Posted Thursday at 02:08 AM I look at it like they have setup 2023 like this: Core Starters: Gray, Ryan, Mahle, Maeda Competing Starters: Ober, Winder, Paddack, Archer/Bundy/Similar FA Pickup (let's assume one from this group) AAA Starter Depth: Smeltzer, Sands AAA Starter Prospects: Balazovic, Enlow, Woods-Richardson Core Relievers: Alcala, Lopez, Jax, Duran, Thielbar, Megill Competing Relievers: Moran, Varland, Canterino, Henriquez Assumptions: Twins don't offer Pagan arbitration Canterino, Varland, Henriquez are ultimately Jax/Duran-like high leverage bullpen converts Maeda returns to quality starter form and Winder is able to stick as a starter All things being equal and healthy (which obviously won't happen) and absent some major shakeup or FA pitching signing, my ideal looks like the following: Starters: Gray, Mahle, Maeda, Ryan, Winder Relievers: Alcala, Lopez, Jax, Duran, Moran, Thielbar, Paddack, Canterino/Varland None of this factors in the $20 - $50mil in FA spending they will have. If Correa comes back for another year, they spend what they have left to sign Willson Contreras at catcher and then a good bullpen arm (replacing Canterino/Varland for 2023). If Correa does not come back they're probably looking at a short term shortstop, a quality starter on 2-3 year deal, and ideally still have room to go after Contreras. None of this factors in any trades they have to make because of lack of 40man space or dealing from other areas of strength (1B/3B/2B) in the system. Too many machinations of how this could play out to be worth typing up here right now, so leaving that alone.
