Minnesota Twins: 3 Low Risk, High Reward Signings the Twins could Make
By Otto Johnson
The Minnesota Twins have always been really good bargain bin hunters in free agency. We rank the three best signings they could make.
Free agency is here for the MLB, and while the Atlanta Braves and New York Mets have been active, the Minnesota Twins have been very quiet. The only signing that the Twins have made was bringing in Derek Law, a quiet move that could work out very well in 2021.
Let’s face it: These are the moves the Twins will make. After making the largest splash in Twins history in 2020 with the signing of Josh Donaldson, the Twins are going to be looking to make small, smart, high upside signings for a team that has a lot of chance for internal improvement.
With this in mind, there are lots of targets for a small market team without a lot of holes. The only needs are middle of the rotation starters, utility depth, and maybe a corner outfielder if you feel Trevor Larnach and Alex Kirilloff aren’t ready (they both are).
The Twins will likely look to save some money filling those spots or go for short one year deals so they can afford to be active in the incredible 2022 free agent class. We dig into three players that fill a need and can have a pretty big impact if everything breaks right while still not breaking the bank. Let’s get into it.
