DOWN: The Twins’ overall health

After two marathon games in a nine-day stretch and a couple of tough losses to the White Sox over the weekend, the Twins look like a team that desperately needs a break. Luckily for them, the All-Star break is right around the corner and as we’ve mentioned earlier, that might be a blessing in disguise for a team with playoff aspirations.

With all the negativity surrounding the injury front, there could be good news on the horizon barring anything unforeseen in the next week. The Twins have already gotten the services of Buxton and Gonzalez back and should have Rosario and Willians Astudillo back once they hit the field after the All-Star break.

The best thing about this is that the Twins haven’t had a massive drop off with these players out of the lineup. Sure, the Twins have had some clunkers, but they still haven’t had a three game losing streak and had three straight months with a winning record for the first time since 2010. If the Twins can keep this going, it should be a special second half in Minneapolis.
