Twins Spring Training: Understanding The Action

3 of 6

Which Players Are Given The Work

With positional battles running rampant down in Fort Myers for the Twins, there will be plenty of players to key in on. Taking a look at the context as to how certain players are being utilized and for what period of time remains the biggest hint as to how the battle is shaking out.

For Danny Santana and Eduardo Escobar, it will be worth noting the amount of starts each makes at shortstop, as well as the total amount of innings played. Are the interchanged? Does one start more often? Is one getting significant playing time after the rest of the starters have been removed? With Santana looking like the clear-cut favorite, Molitor will have to decide how he progresses the competition as whole.
