Minnesota Twins: Players of the Week 5/14-5/20

Finally! After 41 games and seven weeks, the Minnesota Twins played a winning week of baseball.

Sandwiched between a two game sweep at the hands of the Cleveland Indians to start the week and a 16-4 trouncing by the Milwaukee Brewers on Sunday was a four game winning streak for the Twins.

Not only did the Twins manage a 4-3 record on the week, they won their first and second series of the season as well.

This past week saw the returns of Justin Morneau from the disabled list and Ben Revere from the Minor Leagues.

Having Morneau and Revere in the lineup seemed to give the hometown nine the spark they needed to rattle off four straight victories.

Not only did the two provide spark, their presence also seemed to give Twins fans a look at what the lineup should be for the rest of the season, barring injury.

While the lineup clicked for most of the week, starting pitching continued to be an issue for the Twins.

Despite that, the bullpen continued its solid performance this week and played a major role in conserving precious leads in the late innings.

This probably is not the start of a Twins run to the playoffs, but it is without a doubt a step in the right direction for a club searching for an identity during the early part of the season.

Of course, some performances were much better and some were terrifyingly worse than others this week.

Let us now look back and name the Twins players of the (winning!) week.
