Opener excitement: With new players, Twins ready to make push for MLB post-season
Minnesota added several new players, including shortstop Carlos Correa, catcher Gary Sanchez and several pitchers, to join Byron Buxton, Jorge Polanco and Miguel Sano on the roster.
MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins made postseason appearances in 2017, 2019 and 2020 before finding themselves at the bottom of the American League Central standings last season.
After a busy off-season, this year's squad looks to contend for a pennant.
To bolster the franchise's chances of returning to the postseason, the Twins added a superstar shortstop in Carlos Correa to join Byron Buxton, Jorge Polanco and Miguel Sano in the everyday lineup. In addition, several other key acquisitions, including several pitchers, give Minnesota a revamped roster.
The Twins open the regular season Thursday, April 7, with a four-game homestand against the Seattle Mariners at Target Field. Learn more about the Twins with the interactive graphic below.
