What does this new look Minnesota Twins roster look like?

Well, with all of the moves that we’ve made, here’s what our way-to-early new 26-man roster looks like:

Batters (14 Players)

  • C: Mitch Garver
  • 1B: Miguel Sano
  • 2B: Jorge Polanco
  • SS: Marcus Semien (3 years, $75 Million)
  • 3B: Jose Miranda
  • LF: Trevor Larnach
  • CF: Byron Buxton
  • RF: Max Kepler
  • DH: Josh Donaldson
  • Bench: Alex Kirilloff, Ryan Jeffers, Luis Arraez, Nick Gordon, and Jake Cave (or Brent Rooker)

Pitchers (12 Players)

  • SP Anthony DeSclafini (2 years, $30 million)
  • SP Steven Matz (1 years, $15 million)
  • SP Michael Pineda (2 years, $25 million)
  • SP Bailey Ober
  • SP Joe Ryan
  • RP Tyler Duffey
  • RP Jon Gant
  • RP Jorge Alcala
  • RP Caleb Thielbar
  • RP Cody Stashak
  • RP Jovani Moran
  • CP Taylor Rogers

Randy Dobnak, Lewis Thorpe, Danny Coulombe, Juan Minaya, and more could make the bullpen mix a little murkier, but this lineup can carry any team, especially one with a solid rotation that offers a lot of flexibility for the future. We’ll see how everything plays out for real this winter.
