Twins Spring Training: Understanding The Action

5 of 6

How Is The Outfield Covered

The Twins have what should be considered a familiar infield. With Trevor Plouffe, Santana, Brian Dozier, and Joe Mauer playing the field, the group is plenty familiar with each other. In the outfield however, Aaron Hicks will be flanked by Oswaldo Arcia and Torii Hunter; it could cause some issues.

Target Field has one of the bigger outfields in all of Major League Baseball. While Hammond Stadium is not set up to mimmick the big league park a la Jet Blue for the Boston Red Sox, ground coverage will be something worth watching. Neither corner outfielder is fleet of foot, and it will be on Hicks to direct traffic. Ironing out issues and seeing how things come together this spring will go a long ways towards comfort during the season.
