Twins 2021 Season Preview

The Twins won the AL Central with a 36-24 mark in last year’s pandemic-shortened campaign, bowing out of the playoffs with a two-game wild-card series loss to the Houston Astros.

While they saw the departures of a pair of stalwarts in outfielder Eddie Rosario and righty reliever Trevor May over the offseason, the Twins added to their roster primarily through one-year deals, perhaps in an effort to preserve their considerable cap space for 2022’s potent free-agent crop.

Shortstop Andrelton Simmons, lefty starter J.A. Happ, righty starter Matt Shoemaker, and righty relievers Hansel Robles and Alex Colomé all joined on one-year pacts. Slugging designated hitter Nelson Cruz returned to the team on a one-year deal worth $10.5 million.

While Minnesota did little to improve an offense that ranked 10th in runs in the American League a season ago, the addition of Simmons should vastly improve the team’s defense.

“There aren’t a lot of defenders about whom the average fan can pick up with the naked eye — ‘Oh, he’s special. He’s different.’ This guy, you can see it,” Twins president of baseball operations Derek Falvey said of the 31-year-old shortstop, according to the Star Tribune. “The other day, he was taking ground balls, and there was a line drive where he knocked it down with his glove and grabbed it out of the air. That’s not normal. Most guys can’t do that.”

Simmons enjoyed his most productive offensive season in 2018, when he hit .292/.337/.417 with 11 home runs, 75 RBI and 10 steals for the Los Angeles Angels.

The four-time Gold Glove winner will push Eddie Rosario over to second base and, with third baseman Josh Donaldson, form arguably baseball’s best defensive left side of the infield.

“He’s an elite shortstop in our game, and I’m definitely excited to play alongside of him,” Donaldson said, according to ESPN. “I think that we’ll be able to make some nice plays throughout the year.”

The Twins clubhouse suffered a tragic loss just days before the season; bench coach Mike Bell passed away at age 46 due to kidney cancer on March 26. He joined Minnesota in December 2019 after years working for the Arizona Diamondbacks.

“You can’t replace Mike Bell,” Falvey said, according to MLB.com. “There’s just no way. I know many of our staff members are already taking on a lot of the responsibilities that Mike had when he was here in terms of baseball responsibilities. But we’re never going to replace the person. He’s going to be with us all year.”
