26. Minnesota Twins

Give credit to the Twins, they knew they needed someone to lead the rotation, so they went out and brought in Ervin Santana (14-10, 3.95 ERA in 2014 with Atlanta). That’s not to say adding Santana is going to fix all the Twins problems. They still have an extremely young team, with still two more prospects (Bryan Buxton, Miguel Sano) on the way. Adding Torii Hunter as a veteran presence was a good move, but the Twins will need more if they hope to contend in the new powerhouse that is the AL Central. Rotation help is key, and the bullpen could use some reinforcement as well. Joe Mauer isn’t getting any younger either, although the move to first base will still allow the Twins to get a few more solid years out of the veteran.

    How do you not mention Justin Morneau in the Rockies section when you talk about how much talent they have? He just won the batting title…
