4. Pitching In Abundance
For the first time in as long as many Twins fans should be able to remember, pitching can probably be considered an asset. Looking at the projected rotation, or even what looks like a very full 25 man roster, Minnesota should have plenty of options when it comes to guys they will run out onto the mound.
Considering Paul Molitor may have to send a guy like Trevor May to Triple-A to start the season, or bring top prospect, Alex Meyer, out of the bullpen, there is plenty reason to get excited. Having a pitcher like Tommy Milone shore up the back-end of your five-man rotation is something the Twins haven’t had in years. Looking at the starting staff, there are no Kevin Correia types, and considering the arms that may be forced to the bullpen, it could be amongst the most intriguing competitions of spring.
At this point, it is good to remember that everything is on paper, and that nothing matters until production and performance take place on the field. That being said, injuries happen and guys go through slumps. In 2015 however, the Twins should have the options to fill in the gaps and make sure they can compete on a nightly basis.
