Minnesota Twins: Who Starts in the Wild Card One Game Playoff?

1 of 6

If the Twins make the playoffs, who is handed the ball to start in the one game wild card playoff?

Calling all aces. The Minnesota Twins need you. If there is a Clayton Kershaw that the Twins can afford, they should be directed to call Terry Ryan immediately. Down to the final couple weeks of their playoff push the Twins will realize they are missing an ace in the rotation. Their best starting pitcher is, at best, league average.

When imagining who might start in a wild card game for the Twins, no one stands out. This presents Paul Molitor with a tough decision in possibly naming the guy good enough to start the one game playoff. Remember, Ervin Santana is not eligible to pitch in the playoffs. Which leaves a likely group of five pitchers who could be chosen. All have a case to start but also have, at times, seemed to regress to last year.
