We've completed previews for four of the six divisions across baseball, and today, we start our fifth: the AL Central. The Tigers won the division last year after being favored heavily before the season, but not without a huge challenge from the Chicago White Sox. In 2013, the Tigers and White Sox looked primed to contend again, with the Royals potentially being a dark horse in the division. Today, we begin our look at the division with the cellar dwellars from a year ago: the Minnesota Twins. Friday, we finished off the NL Central by previewing the reigning division champion Cincinnati Reds. Here's your recap.
