Twins Look To Bounce Back In 2014

Twins Look To Bounce Back In 2014
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

The Twins spent nearly a decade at or near the top of the AL Central, but 2013 marked their third straight 90-loss season. They struggled in two key phases on the game, scoring less than four runs per game, and placing dead-last in starting pitching, with a 5.26 earned-run average. It was a short offseason, but the players are ready to get back to work. "You know what, I'm glad it went by quickly. Having 96 losses is not a good taste in your mouth for the offseason. I'd like to go ahead and get past that get back to spring training and get after it," said Ryan Pressly.

The Twins had a busy offseason trying to improve, signing starting pitchers Ricky Nolasco and Phil Hughes. Nolasco's four-year, $49 million-dollar deal, and Hughes' three years and $24 million-dollar deal, mark the largest free agent signings in Twins history. Pressley feels these transactions could be the difference maker in 2014.

"Well, getting Hughes and getting Nolasco is going to be interesting. Those are both 200-plus inning guys and our bullpen was pretty taxed last year so having those guys on our staff is going to help us a lot, so we're not going to be as tierd at the end of the season. I'm really looking forward to also having Kurt Suzuki back there as well as a new face. It's going to fun," said Pressly.

The Twins roster will continue to take shape as they head to spring training, before eventually finalizing their 25 man roster in mid-March. With a couple a big changes, the rebuilding process is nearly complete and goals are clear. Now all that's left is mark down some 'W's' in the left column. "Personally for me, if the team wins that's a success for me. We have to win some games. We can't be loosing 90-plus games a season. If we're in the hunt, and we're getting talking about at the end of the year, that's our first goal. Our ulimate goal is to win the Division, win the playoffs and eventually win the World Series," said pitcher Brian Duensing.

The Twins also have a number of young prospects, including Byron Buxton and Miguel Sano, who will look to have an impact in 2013. The team opens up the regular season March 31st versus the White Sox.
