The Minnesota Twins will have several tough decisions ahead of Friday’s roster deadline, but who will make the cut to face the New York Yankees?

A couple of months ago, the Minnesota Twins had a good idea about who they could trot out for a potential playoff series. With a lineup that could hit home runs at will and a starting rotation that had enough to get by most teams, the Twins felt pretty confident about where they were at and had a relatively quiet trade deadline.

Fast forward to today and the Twins are in a bit of a bind.

You can say what you want about the lack of moves at the deadline, but several key injuries and a suspension have left the Twins scrambling ahead of their American League Divisional Series with the New York Yankees.

As they look to ramp several players up in the days leading up to Friday’s Game 1 in the Bronx, the Twins will have to make several decisions on who makes the roster and whether they can stay healthy for a best-of-five game series. With the deadline set for 10 a.m. CT on Friday morning, we took a look at who could make the final 25-man roster to take on the Yankees.
