The Minnesota Twins made history in 2017 when they became the first team in MLB history to make the postseason just one year after losing 100+ games. The Twins lost in the AL Wild Card Game, but it was still a season far better than perhaps even the Twins themselves could have ever dreamed of. They will look to build on last year’s magical season and carry that success over to 2018.
Veteran Joe Mauer will enter his 15th season, all of which have come with Minnesota. Despite not producing the type of power scouts once thought he could, Mauer still gets on base at an excellent rate and rarely strikes out. If Brian Dozier hits at least 28 home runs in 2018, it will be his fourth consecutive year reaching that clip. The Twins second baseman has emerged as a lethal power threat in the middle of the lineup along with 2017 All-Star Miguel Sano. Sano is one of the most exciting young players in all of baseball, bringing electricity and power to the Twins lineup. In the outfield, Eddie Rosario, Byron Buxton, and Max Kepler all played key roles in last year’s march to the postseason. Together they form one of the youngest and most entertaining outfields in the American League.
The starting rotation still has plenty of question marks, but there is room for improvement in 2018. Ervin Santana was phenomenal all of last season - it will be essential for him to replicate last year’s success in 2018. Behind Santana, 23-year old Jose Berrios will look to build on a strong 2017 campaign, while improvement is needed from Kyle Gibson, Adalberto Mejia, and Phil Hughes. If Minnesota picks up a key arm during the season, watch out for the Twins.
