Most Twins games this season will be locally televised on Bally Sports North, while others may be nationally televised on MLB Network (those ones will also be on Bally Sports North), ESPN, ESPN2, Fox or FS1. A couple may be untelevised and stream on YouTube, Apple TV+, Peacock TV or ESPN+.
If you don’t have cable and you live in the Twins market, you can watch a live stream of every televised Twins game on FuboTV or DirecTV Stream, which both include Bally Sports North and come with a free trial.

Twins Season Preview 2023
In 2022, the Minnesota Twins improved over 2021, winning 78 games instead 73. In 2023, they’ll be hoping to compete at the top of the AL Central on the back of a couple of big offseason signings.
The Twins acquired catcher Christian Vazquez and all-star outfielder Joey Gallo, and they traded for pithcer Alejandro Hidalgo, utility player Kyle Farmer and outfielder Michael A. Taylor. They also re-signed shortstop Carlos Correa, all solid moves to help them improve the team this year and hopefully finish higher than third in the division.
At spring training, manager Rocco Baldelli told the MLB Network that he’s excited about the new guys coming in as they try to stock up on good players.
“We worked into the offseason with an idea and a plan. We came in with a group that I think is definitely deeper. We brought in some guys, especially later on in the offseason, both in the outfield and in the infield, that I think are really gonna help us. We’re going to just stockpile as many good major league players as we can,” said Baldelli.
He also said of Correa re-signing with the Twins that everyone was super excited that he didn’t get away after just one season on the team.
“That’s an organizational-changing kind of move, to be able to bring a guy like Carlos back,” said Baldelli. “We’ve got a chance to get the full picture of what he does and he does it on the field, offensively, defensively, he does it in the clubhouse, he does it outside of the clubhouse. He does everything, he elevates the team in every way. It’s a move that I certainly think every single person in our organization, including all of our fans and everyone, were fist-pumping and probably doing some jumping up and down. I couldn’t have been more excited … It honestly doesn’t get any better than that for a team.”
Baldelli also said that Pablo Lopez is going to be a huge addition to the team.
“Incredible. He’s in there with the coaches when it’s still dark out … he’s extraordinarily disciplined, that’s very easy to see already. And just in the conversation, the thoughts that are going through his mind from day one, he’s a very, very impressive human being, not only just as a player. And as a player when you get him out on the mound, and you see the stuff and the ability to pitch and the knowlege of what he’s doing out on the mound, he stands out,” said the Twins manager.
