Continued: MLB Insider: Dodgers' massive TV deal means millions to Twins

Always a first time?

The Twins have drawn 121 walks, most in the major leagues. History says they won’t stay there, though — in the American League’s 113-year history, the Twins (and the Washington Senators before them) never have led the AL in walks.

CENTRAL INTELLIGENCE

Even the best-laid plans go awry, as the American League Central has discovered already this year. Each team’s biggest disappointment thus far:

Indians: No telling whether the switch from catcher/first base to third is to blame, but Carlos Santana’s awful start (.128 average, three RBI) leaves a huge hole in Cleveland’s lineup.

• • •

Royals

They can live with the batting average hovering around .200, but Kansas City dropped Billy Butler to sixth in the lineup because he hadn’t hit a home run yet.

• • •

Tigers: Alex Gonzalez drilled a walk-off single on Opening Day, but barely two weeks later, the veteran shortstop was released due to his terrible range and 5-for-30 hitting.

• • •

White Sox: When Avasail Garcia was lost for the year, Alejandro De Aza was supposed to ease the loss. A .187 average and .244 on-base percentage entering Saturday hasn’t done it.
