The Twins ended the season as American League Central champions, again, before being swept out of the playoffs, again. A look at who will stay, and who will go:

POSITION PLAYERS

EHIRE ADRIANZA

Infielder Age: 31

Adrianza is handy all over the field and has the demeanor of a future coach or manager. But he’s starting to look and play his age.

Contract: Free agent

2021 outlook: With another team

LUIS ARRAEZ

Second base Age: 23

Left knee tendinitis nagged him until the very end of the regular season, when he finished with a flourish.

Contract: Pre-arbitration

2021 outlook: Leadoff hitter

WILLIANS ASTUDILLO

Catcher Age: 28

Season was delayed when he tested positive for COVID-19. The La Tortuga Magic from two years ago was no longer there.

Contract: Pre-arbitration

2021 outlook: Off the bench

ALEX AVILA

Catcher Age: 33

Classic veteran backup who’s solid behind the plate and will occasionally drive a pitch over the fence.

Contract: Free agent

2021 outlook: With another team

TRAVIS BLANKENHORN

Second base Age: 24

Not a standout, but he can play solidly at second plus some outfield and third base. Takes good at-bats. Is well-liked.

Contract: Minor league

2021 outlook: Minors

BYRON BUXTON

Center field Age: 26

Began to tap into his power potential, finishing second on the team in slugging percentage. But a mid-foot sprain during summer camp and shoulder soreness during the season added to his medical file.

Contract: Arbitration-eligible

2021 outlook: Starting center fielder

JAKE CAVE

Outfield Age: 27

Can play all three outfield positions and will provide occasional pop. But his offense was the worst of his three seasons with Twins.

Contract: Pre-arbitration

2021 outlook: With another team

GILBERTO CELESTINO

Outfield Age: 21

Made the initial 60-man player pool at the start of summer camp but not the wild-card taxi squad. Played mostly at Class A in 2019.

Contract: Minor league

2021 outlook: Class AA, wherever that will be

NELSON CRUZ

Designated hitter Age: 40

Over a 162-game season, Cruz was on pace for another 40-homer season. He did tail off some at the end.

Contract: Free agent

2021 outlook: Re-signs with Twins

JOSH DONALDSON

Infielder Age: 34

He delivered tough at-bats, occasional power, good defense and definitely a fiery attitude. The Twins just didn’t see enough of it because of a calf injury.

Contract: $21.75 million a year through 2023

2021 outlook: Lock for third base

MITCH GARVER

Catcher Age: 29

The Silver Slugger winner never gained any traction, getting off to a slow start, then being sidelined because of an intercostal strain.

Contract: Arbitration eligible

2021 outlook: Traded to another team

MARWIN GONZALEZ

Infielder Age: 31

A rash of injuries meant the Twins needed their multi-positional everyday player to step up. And he provided one of the worst offensive years of his career.

Contract: Free agent

2021 outlook: With another team

NICK GORDON

Infielder Age: 24

Gordon was diagnosed with COVID-19 and never made it to summer camp. Another setback for the 2014 first-round pick. The Twins might need his roster spot.

Contract: Minor league

2021 outlook: Minor leaguer

RYAN JEFFERS

Catcher Age: 23

When Garver went down, the Twins turned to Jeffers, and the rookie more than held his own — at the plate and behind it.

Contract: Pre-arbitration

2021 outlook: Opening Day starter

MAX KEPLER

Right fielder Age: 27

Kepler was part of a group of players who never found a groove at the plate and ended up regressing. Short season a factor?

Contract: Signed through 2023 (will earn $6.5 million in 2021)

2021 outlook: Starting right fielder

ALEX KIRILLOFF

Outfielder Age: 22

The top prospect spent the summer in St. Paul then, surprisingly, was added to the wild-card series roster — and then, surprisingly, started Game 2, got a hit and made a sliding catch.

Contract: Minor league

2021 outlook: Starting left fielder

JORGE POLANCO

Shortstop Age: 27

Polanco had the worst season of his career while playing with a sore right ankle that will likely require surgery for the second consecutive offseason.

Contract: Signed through 2023 (makes $4.3 million next season)

2021 outlook: Starting shortstop

BRENT ROOKER

Outfielder Age: 25

Called up when Kepler landed on the injured list, Rooker was batting .316 in seven games when he was hit with a pitch and suffered a broken arm.

Contract: Pre-arbitration

2021 outlook: Competes for roster spot

EDDIE ROSARIO

Left fielder Age: 29

Rosario actually raised his walk rate and lowered his strikeout rate, but it didn’t translate to more damage at the plate. Is he a $10 million player?

Contract: Arbitration-eligible

2021 outlook: Traded to another team

MIGUEL SANO

First base Age: 27

The good: Sano led the team with 25 extra-base hits. The bad: Sano led league with 90 strikeouts. The ugly: Career worst .757 OPS.

Contract: Signed through 2022 (makes $12.3 million in 2021)

2021 outlook: Starting first baseman

LAMONTE WADE JR.

Outfielder Age: 26

Called up three times during the season, Wade can play all three outfield positions, played some first as well and takes good at-bats.

Contract: Minor league

2021 outlook: Reserve outfielder

RELIEF PITCHERS

JORGE ALCALA

Righthander Age: 25

Posted a 2.63 ERA. Still raw, but his fastball averaged 97 mph and his slider is wicked.

Contract: Pre-arbitration

2021 outlook: Developing late-inning enforcer

TYLER CLIPPARD

Righthander Age: 35

Had one of the best seasons of his career, and posted a career-low walk rate. Can he do it again?

Contract: Free agent

2021 outlook: With another team

EDWAR COLINA

Righthander Age: 23

Made a late-season appearance, and it wasn’t pretty. But his first major league pitch was 100 miles per hour. Also has a good slider.

Contract: Minor league

2021 outlook: Jorge Alcala development program

TYLER DUFFEY

Righthander Age: 29

Broke through last season and was the best reliever this season in an early setup role. Twins adverse to locking up relievers, but Duffey would seem to be a candidate.

Contract: Arbitration-eligible

2021 outlook: Key setup man

ZACK LITTELL

Righthander Age: 24

Limited to 6⅓ innings because of right elbow inflammation as well as ineffectiveness. The Twins removed him from the 40-man roster.

Contract: Pre-arbitration

2021 outlook: Spring training invite

TREVOR MAY

Righthander Age: 31

Will generate interest in free agency with strikeout rate of 14.7 per nine innings. The Twins need more hard throwers, not fewer.

Contract: Free agent

2021 outlook: Signs with Twins

TAYLOR ROGERS

Lefthander Age: 29

Rogers had a rocky season in which most of his numbers were the same as a year ago — except hits. Rogers gave up a lot of them.

Contract: Arbitration-eligible

2021 outlook: The closer … until someone is brought in

FERNANDO ROMERO

Righthander Age: 25

Visa issues kept him out of the country for the entire year. He was a long shot to make the team and now is playing catchup.

Contract: Minor league

2021 outlook: With another team

SERGIO ROMO

Righthander Age: 37

Twins brought back Romo for his experience and big game history.

Contract: $5 million club option, $275,000 buyout

2021 outlook: With another team

CODY STASHAK

Righthander Age: 26

Not a flamethrower, but he doesn’t walk many batters and increased his strikeout rate from 2019.

Contract: Pre-arbitration

2021 outlook: Bigger role in bullpen

CALEB THIELBAR

Lefthander Age: 33

Randolph, Minn., native made a stunning return. His slow breaking ball is pure entertainment.

Contract: Pre-arbitration

2021 outlook: Battle for bullpen spot

LEWIS THORPE

Lefthander Age: 24

Rough season. Gave up too many hits. Walked too many.

Contract: Pre-arbitration

2021 outlook: With another team

MATT WISLER

Righthander Age: 28

Effective slider made him a find.

Contract: Arbitration-eligible

2021 outlook: Back in the bullpen

STARTING PITCHERS

JOSE BERRIOS

Righthander Age: 26

Two-time All-Star stayed at the top of the rotation but was inconsistent. Headed for second arbitration season and a big payday.

Contract: Arbitration-eligible

2021 outlook: Frontline starter

DAKOTA CHALMERS

Righthander Age: 23

Veteran Twins hitters marveled at his curveball during summer camp. His main issue is command, but arm talent is worth it to the Twins.

Contract: Minor league

2021 outlook: Minor leagues

RANDY DOBNAK

Righthander Age: 25

Started out hot but slumped late. He will be dirt cheap and in the rotation if he regains his command.

Contract: Pre-arbitration

2021 outlook: Rotation filler

JHOAN DURAN

Righthander Age: 22

Spent the season working out in St. Paul, where hitters tried to get wood on his split-fingered sinker.

Contract: Minor league

2021 outlook: Major league debut

RICH HILL

Lefthander Age: 40

His elbow held up from surgery in 2019, but left shoulder fatigue sidelined him for 17 games.

Contract: Free agent

2021 outlook: With another team

KENTA MAEDA

Righthander Age: 32

One of the best pitchers in baseball and led the AL in WHIP (walks and hits per innings pitched). Twins got him to throw more breaking balls to lefties, and he took off.

Contract: Three years left on eight-year deal

2021 outlook: Opening Day starter

JAKE ODORIZZI

Righthander Age: 30

Despite an injury-plagued season that saw him make only four starts, the 2019 All-Star’s track record should land him a lucrative deal. He wants to stay.

Contract: Free agent

2021 outlook: With another team

MICHAEL PINEDA

Righthander Age: 31

Had to serve the remaining 39 games of his PED suspension from 2019 but stepped right into the rotation in September and produced.

Contract: Signed through 2021

2021 outlook: Mid-rotation starter

DEVIN SMELTZER

Lefthander Age: 24

Gave up 12 runs over 16 innings and was on and off the roster during the shortened season. He ended up on the postseason taxi squad.

Contract: Pre-arbitration

2021 outlook: Starter in the minors
