Minnesota Twins: Way-too-Early Opening Day Lineup Predictions for 2023
By Otto Johnson
A 2022 Minnesota Twins season that started with so much promise is now in the rearview mirror. Despite starting out well, the team’s injuries (highlighted by the team’s glaring lack of depth), a lack of top talent, and mediocre pitching resulted in the team sitting on the couch for October.
With the Twins once again on the outside looking in, it’s time to look ahead at the 2023 season. Barring some monumental movement, the 2023 roster won’t look too different from the 2023 version, but there are definitely several adjustments that are coming the team’s way. We’re here to make some guesses on what those changes will be.
What will the Minnesota Twins 2023 Opening Day Lineup look like?
We’re starting off with the lineup, a group that finished fifth in the American League in batting average, slugging percentage, on-base percentage, hits, and fourth in walks. Despite this, the group was inconsistent, so the lineup will definitely be adjusted.
In addition, the Twins start the season against the Kansas City Royals on March 30th, so they’re likely to see Royals ace and right-hander Brady Singer on the mound (for lineup purposes, this will be something to remember, as Rocco likes playing the advantages). With this in mind, here’s what the lineup might look like in 2023.
