Chart: Projected Twins lineup for 2014

  • Updated: January 14, 2014 - 12:27 AM

A lowly affair: ranking the Twins

Star Tribune staff writer Phil Miller takes a swing at what the Twins lineup could look like, with Baseball America’s position ranking for fantasy baseball among major leaguers. Below is player with his Baseball America rank and a comment:

Alex Presley, CF

Rank: 99

One stolen base in his last seven attempts, so Twins will want improvement on bases.

Brian Dozier, 2B

Rank: 13

If he repeats 18 HR season, Twins can live with strikeouts.


Joe Mauer, 1B

Rank: 7 (at catcher)

Gets on base more than 40 percent of time in five of last six seasons.

Josh Willingham, DH

Rank: 52

Twins hope for return to 35-HR power, but he’ll be 35 next month.

Oswaldo Arcia, LF

Rank: 70

Full-time job could turn him into 25-HR producer, but whiffs pile up.
