MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins made postseason appearances in 2017, 2019 and 2020 before finding themselves at the bottom of the American League Central standings last season.

After a busy off-season, this year's squad looks to contend for a pennant.

To bolster the franchise's chances of returning to the postseason, the Twins added a superstar shortstop in Carlos Correa to join Byron Buxton, Jorge Polanco and Miguel Sano in the everyday lineup. In addition, several other key acquisitions, including several pitchers, give Minnesota a revamped roster.

The Twins open the regular season Thursday, April 7, with a four-game homestand against the Seattle Mariners at Target Field. Learn more about the Twins with the interactive graphic below.
