The Minnesota Twins are now officially a little over a quarter through the season, with the team playing it’s 44th game of the season yesterday. The team is 27-17, 4.5 games above the Chicago White Sox in the American League Central, and just four games behind the New York Yankees for the best record in the American League (and all of baseball).
With that in mind, it’s time once again to stop and grade the individual players on how they’ve performed over the course of the season so far and take a look at how they earned that grade. We started the series with the hitters on Tuesday, continued with the rotation yesterday, and wrap things up with the bullpen today.
We grade the Minnesota Twins bullpen on their 2022 performances.
Similar to the first two installments, there are some relievers who miss the cut, namely Jorge Alcala, Trevor Megill, Jovani Moran, Dereck Rodriguez, Cole Sands, Jhon Romero, Jharel Cotton, Yennier Cano, and Nick Gordon (lol), all of whom have appeared in less than five games for the Twins this season.
Josh Winder is also not included as he was on the rotation list. We’ll wrap this series up starting with the lower leverage pitchers and working our way up to the high leverage pitchers, starting with Danny Coulombe.
