The Minnesota Twins, arguably in need of a starter better than Sonny Gray, could be a suitor for NPB star Kodai Senga. Senga, 29, posted an outstanding 1.89 ERA with 159 strikeouts in 148 innings in 2022. Senga has a fastball that reaches 100 mph and a nasty splitter to boot. Will Senga be the steal of the MLB offseason? Should the Twins get involv…
 
This Minnesota Twins regime has handed out only one multi-year deal to a starting pitcher: Michael Pineda. They've strayed toward the one-year deals, presumably reducing risk and avoiding landmines. Free agent starter Andrew Heaney enjoyed a breakout season in 2022 but was greatly limited by injury, perhaps dampening his value on the open market. D…
 
The Minnesota Twins entered this offseason with more starting pitching depth than Derek Falvey's front office has had since they were hired following the 2016 season. Even then, the Twins lack upside and have plenty of questions in the rotation with Tyler Mahle, Sonny Gray and Kenta Maeda dealing with injuries in 2022. Would free agents Chris Bassi…
 
As has been documented at length, the Minnesota Twins haven't had a clear ace on their pitching staff since Johan Santana won two American League Cy Young Awards in the span of three seasons. The Twins are in need of a horse to lead their staff in 2023 and beyond. Is former Chicago White Sox and San Francisco Giant Carlos Rodón that guy? Let's anal…
 
The Minnesota Twins have an opportunity to lock up one of the best shortstops in the world this offseason. On this market, there are four in-their-prime, extremely talented players. Carlos Correa, Xander Bogaerts, Dansby Swanson and Trea Turner represent one of the greatest shortstop classes of all time. When comparing the incumbent Correa and Boga…
 
The Minnesota Twins had a very eventful Friday. First, the team had a special announcement event for their new logos and uniforms. Later in the day, Jeff Passan reported that the Twins traded Gio Urshela for a 19-year-old righty Alejandro Hidalgo. Lastly, multiple reporters confirmed the Twins traded RHP Casey Legumina to the Cincinnati Reds for ut…
 
The Twins have several promising young players on their roster, from Luis Arraez to José Miranda to Jhoan Durán. What if the team followed Atlanta's model by extending all of their top young players? Who would the Twins sign to new contracts and how long would they be? Let's investigate the most likely candidates and whether this approach would be …
 
The Twins added four players to their 40-man roster prior to the Rule 5 deadline Tuesday.

What's the latest on Carlos Correa? Which teams are the biggest …

The Minnesota Twins have plenty of work to do as free agency officially opens Thursday. Carlos Correa will enter the market, leaving a giant hole at shortstop and in the Twins' lineup.

The Minnesota Twins are coming off back-to-back losing seasons, low-lighted by a September collapse that saw the Twins fall to third place in the American League Central.

Byron Buxton made his first All-Star Game in 2022, starting in centerfield and hitting the game-winning homer for the American League. Buxton's performance with the Minnesota Twins was a curious case as he battled through knee, hip and hand injuries. Buxton hit 28 homers but struck out in 30% of his plate appearances, bringing his season average to…
 
Caleb Thielbar went from an awesome story to the Twins' best left-handed reliever in just a few seasons. Thielbar's second half of the 2022 season showed that he can be among the game's best left-handed bullpen weapons, with elite batted-ball data and expected results. Thielbar posted a sterling 1.50 ERA after the All-Star break, regularly coming i…
 
The Twins relied heavily on two first-year relievers during the 2022 season. Jhoan Durán and Griffin Jax both found themselves in extremely high-leverage situations and often answered the call. For Jax, his season was the complete opposite of 2021, when he posted a 6.37 ERA in his first 82 innings as a Major League pitcher. The Twins decided his ro…
 
The Twins made a big splash at the 2022 trade deadline when they dealt multiple prospects for All-Star closer Jorge López. López was lights-out for the Baltimore Orioles before the first place Twins came calling to improve their bullpen hours before the deadline. With López and Jhoan Durán, the Twins hoped they had created one of the best backend d…
 
Jhoan Durán just completed one of the best rookie relief seasons in Twins history. Durán posted a 1.86 ERA with 89 strikeouts in 67 2/3 innings, regularly pitching against the opponent's best hitters in the tightest situations. Durán was a bright spot for a Twins bullpen that consistently blew games throughout the season. What does Durán's rookie y…
 
Bailey Ober was a pleasant surprise in an otherwise treacherous 2021, putting together a solid rookie season and earning a prominent role in the 2022 rotation. Unfortunately, a lingering groin injury shortened Ober's season and he pitched only 56 innings. Ober was very good for many of those innings, posting a 3.21 ERA and 2.92 FIP in 11 starts. Wh…
 
It was a somber day when the Twins traded fan favorite Nelson Cruz to the Tampa Bay Rays just days before the 2021 deadline. Cruz was the catalyst for the most powerful lineup in baseball history. Thankfully, it looks like the Twins got plenty in return. Joe Ryan threw 147 innings in a very solid rookie season in 2022, establishing himself as a bui…
 
The Twins, for the third offseason in a row, have a gaping hole at shortstop. Carlos Correa is opting out of his three-year contract to enter free agency. The Twins have never handed out a contract at the level of Correa's demand and aren't likely to start now. Will they sign another stopgap to keep the position warm for Royce Lewis? Or is this fin…
 
The Twins made a bold move when they traded their first round pick from 2021, Chase Petty, in a deal to land Cincinnati Reds' starter Sonny Gray. Gray, 32, pitched well in first season with the Twins but dealt with a nagging hamstring problem and a pectoral strain to boot. With one year and $12 million left on his deal, was year one a success for G…
 
Max Kepler is one of the longest-tenured Minnesota Twins, playing 837 games and logging over 3,000 plate appearances with the club. Kepler has one more year left on his contract with an option for 2024. With young outfielders on the rise and Kepler's offense declining, it's probably time for the Twins to deal him. Who would he bring back in a trade…
 
Minnesota Twins right-handed pitching prospect Marco Raya joins the show to break down his plans for the offseason, his goals for 2023 and what makes him special as a pitcher. The Twins selected Raya in the fourth round of the 2020 draft and have watched him ascend into one of the best pitching prospects in the system. Raya, 20, posted a 3.05 ERA i…
 
José Miranda was one of the brightest spots of the Twins season in 2023. After struggling upon his call, Miranda put together an incredible stretch where he hit .335/.374/.571 (.946 OPS) over a 50-game stretch in the middle of the summer. Miranda, 24, is already a good Major League hitter but is there more within him? Could he become a true All-Sta…
 
Alex Kirilloff came through the Twins' system as a consensus top-25 global prospect in the world. His smooth left-handed swing was enough for the Twins to select him in the first round in 2016. Kirilloff crushed the minors in 2018 before wrist problems and the Covid shutdown plagued him for what has been the last four seasons. Kirilloff underwent a…
 
The Minnesota Twins struggled mightily down the stretch in 2022, failing to score runs and prevent them to boot. One shining bat in their lineup was in the hands of Nick Gordon, who rode a strong second half to a very good season. Gordon recorded 41 extra-base hits while appearing in 136 games for the injured Twins, driving in key runs and staying …
 
Carlos Correa is heading for free agency at a very opportune time. He just turned 28 years old and has produced back-to-back 5+ win seasons per baseball reference.

Luis Arraez, the 2022 American League batting champion, made a defensive shift early in the season with a move to first base.

Plus, the Twins started their 40-man roster moves as Jake Cave, Jermaine Palacios and Caleb Hamilton were claimed…
 
One of the bigger questions for the Twins this offense is who mans third base in 2023. Gio Urshela did a nice job at the position in 2022, producing three Wins Above Replacement and hitting .285/.338/.429 in 144 games. Urshela is entering his final year of arbitration at an estimated salary of $9.2 million, per MLB Trade Rumors. Should the Twins te…
