The Minnesota Twins will look to rebuild their roster after a successful 2019 season, but which players could be on the move as they depart in free agency?

With the Minnesota Twins’ 2019 season in the rearview mirror, the Twins’ front office duo of Thad Levine and Derek Falvey must turn their attention to the free-agent market. As the Twins crunch the numbers in their heads to decide what could put Minnesota over the hump in 2019, they must first decide what they would like to do with their own free agents.

Entering the hot stove season, the Twins have eight players that are currently slated to test the waters of free agency. With Nelson Cruz having his option for the 2020 season exercised, that leaves seven players for the Twins to decide on as they begin to shape their roster for next season.

So which players could be leaving for greener pastures and which players could be remaining in a Twins uniform when they report for spring training next April? In this piece, we’ll break down each of the seven unrestricted free agents for the Twins this winter and examine their odds of returning to Minnesota in the 2020 season.
