Week two for Minnesota Twins prospects in the Arizona Fall League included one hitter continuing to show his power, infielders racking up hits, two pitchers making a start during the week with one of them continuing to flash elite strikeout numbers in the early going.
Sometimes we have to hold people accountable. Perhaps not so much in our larger society, but certainly in our baseball world (unless we’re talking the Astros, or…maybe the Red Sox and Yankees…and then there’s all that steroid stuff…but I digress).
What if I told you one of the 2021 Twins’ best relievers ERA-wise was only given four opportunities to strut his stuff? That’s right, here’s the case for Willians Astudillo as a full-time relief pitcher.
Twins fans understand the Eddie Rosario Experience. The exhilarating highs. The baffling lows. The “I can’t believe he just did that, why did he do that, wait it worked never mind” feeling of watching the man patrol the outfield or swing at a pitch that is currently behind him.
One of the most challenging decisions, at least in terms of fanfare, over recent seasons was the one where Eddie Rosario was non-tendered. Minnesota made the right move, but right now, the exciting outfielder is shining in a Braves uniform.

Minnesota Twins fans know that the team has several needs to address this offseason, including starting pitching. Previously, we looked at some ways that the team could improve their rotation for 2022, and we also looked at the possibility of adding a big name at shortstop.
The opening week of the 2021 Arizona Fall League season started off slowly for the Scottsdale Scorpions as they went 0-2 in their first two games. But with help from one of the Minnesota Twins prospects and his power, they finished the week with two consecutive wins to even their record after week...
It may not be who you expect When the Twins hit their 2011-’12-’13 skid, the Detroit Tigers were three-peating as AL Central champions. Yet, I distinctly remember telling anyone who would listen that when Minnesota got competitive again, they would be locking horns with the Kansas City Royals.
It has been a frustrating 2021 season for the Minnesota Twins. The club entered the year with hopes of challenging for a playoff bid, but it quickly became clear that contending wasn’t in the cards for Minnesota this year.
