It has been a disappointing season for the Minnesota Twins in general, but there have been a few silver linings.
While outfielder Josh Willingham and pitcher Scott Diamond regressed significantly, Twins fans got to see Brian Dozier succeed as a converted second baseman and Chris Herrmann become a viable option as a backup catcher.
There have been a few independent league players who have come in and contributed, like pitchers Andrew Albers and Caleb Thielbar, but other established major leaguers like pitcher Vance Worley ended up in the minors.
All in all, it’s another rebuilding year in Minneapolis. Some of these names on the list will help fill in spots during the Byron Buxton, Miguel Sano era, while others will be playing for another team or be out of the game by the time the Twins are good again.
