Minnesota Twins: Predicting the AL All-Star roster and which Twins should make the cut
The Minnesota Twins are one of the top teams in the American League, but which Twins will have a shot at representing the team at the MLB All-Star Game?
The Minnesota Twins received some good news last week as they found out that Jorge Polanco will be starting for the American League in the MLB All-Star Game. With the starters set for the All-Star Game next month, we can take a look at the other 23 remaining spots for the AL side before the rosters are revealed later today.
The MLB All-Star Game requires that every team have a representative, so we’ll fill out the roster and the selections from this article will follow the roster setup with 33 players; two fielders from each position, two designated hitters, five starting pitchers, three relievers, four undesignated pitchers, two undesignated hitters, and the fan vote player.
The players are listed with their WAR and a brief description of why they made the cut. Afterwards, the article will discuss the seven most deserving Minnesota Twins (with Polanco already in) and why they should make the game as well. The team still holds one of the best records in baseball and is deserving of more recognition, so we’ll make a case for each one heading to the Midsummer Classic.
