Pitching As An Asset

We’ve used this moniker a handful of times this offseason but it finally makes sense for the Twins. After hitting a home run with Hughes in 2014, the Twins can consider the starting rotation a strength as they head into 2015. While the offseason only saw the addition of Ervin Santana, the Twins should also get a much better Ricky Nolasco (yes, it’s fair to say he can’t be much worse). Throwing in a now-seasoned Kyle Gibson, and a fifth starter that is pulled from names like Tommy Milone, Trevor May, and Alex Meyer, and the Twins have themselves a major league quality five.
