While their current roster is clearly not working, the 14-27 Minnesota Twins should be looking to make a few mid-season moves in 2012.

As their offense improves from poor to so-so and defense remains solid, the Twins’ pitching has performed terribly this year, and is showing little signs of improvement.

So what’s happened to their pitching?

The Twins starters have pitched a league-worst 6.67 ERA, .319 BAA and 9-22 record through 213.1 innings. They also are the second-worst team in MLB for innings-per-outing, averaging around five.

On the other hand, Twins relievers are ranked 15th best for ERA (3.61), and ninth-best for BAA (.229) in MLB, holding a solid 5-5 record.

Statistically, the Twins’ greatest weakness is starting pitching, followed by offensive production.

This article examines potential moves the Twins should consider to improve their starting pitching and to jump-start their offensive production.
