Minnesota Twins Outfielders of the 2010s
Left Field: Eddie Rosario (2015-2020)
Eddie Rosario played the most in left field of anyone in the past decade, playing a total of 681 games out there. Although his defense and running antics often left Twins fans shaking their heads, Rosario had an 11.2 offensive WAR with Minnesota and hit over 20 HR three times as well. Overall a solid corner outfielder for half of the decade.
Center Field: Aaron Hicks (2013-2015)
Just kidding. It’s obviously Byron Buxton. Although Buxton has not played a full season since 2017, when he’s on the field, he gives the Twins the best chance of winning. A great leader and MVP caliber player when healthy, he’s the most talented player the Twins have had both offensively and defensively this decade.
I speak for all Twins fans when I say I hope that we get to see a stretch of full seasons for Buxton with his new extension that he signed.
Right Field: Max Kepler (2015-Current)
If you want a guy who is going to play almost every day, mess around and hit 20 HR in a season, steal between 6-10 bags, and be solid defensively, then Max Kepler is your guy. He’s struggled over the past few years, but Kepler is a very solid player and was very good in the 2010s.
If he can bring that average up again and bounce back to the player he was during the last decade, he would be able to elevate himself to a consistent starter alongside Buxton in the outfield.
