Minnesota Twins Organization: Payroll, Depth Charts + Rosters, (MLB + MiLB)

Ron Gardenhire and Tom Kelly have been the only 2 men to manage the Twins in the last years.  Having stability in the Manager and GM position lends itself for a proper run franchise in terms of on the field success.  The Twins will give Gardenhire the chance to rebuild with this club yet again.

By Chuck Booth (Lead Baseball Analyst/Website Owner): and welcome Jeff Kleiner (Salary, Roster and Depth Chart Expert for the MLB) – visit his website  here  

You guys are all in for a treat.  Jeff Kleiner recently contacted me about a partnership merge for the website.  He has developed a site (prosportsrosters.com) that covers all organizational affiliates in the Minors for all of the Major League Baseball Clubs.  We are going to combine efforts to bring you the best look at salaries, current 25 Man Player Rosters and Depth Charts for all 30 teams. 

Jeff is going to provide the documents in form of spreadsheets and I am going to accompany the posts with deep analysis of what the numbers tell us from my perspective.  If you can’t wait for all of my assessments for each club, go and visit Jeff’s website over at http://www.prosportsrosters.com.

In Speaking with Jeff, he is one of the more passionate fans I have come across towards the game of baseball.  He spends enough time in updating his MLB Facts for it to be a Full-Time Job.  So after the usual Video Clip and READ THE REST OF THIS ENTRY button, you will find some serious &*!@?!#!

Jeff updates this page below on a daily basis.  After you click on it….Bookmark it.  There is a 3 year salary forecast and stats not listed here on this page.  Jeff updates these pages daily and these changes include any Roster moves!

Target Field was a must need for the Twins a few years ago. The HHH Metrodome just was not getting the job done, much like Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay. The weather was and still is the one downside because during the games early in the season the weather can get low with wind being able to rattle the ball around in the air.  Target Field has given the team the proper financial flexibility to compete with the big boys of the American League/.

Target Field was a must need for the Twins a few years ago. The HHH Metrodome just was not getting the job done, much like Tropicana Field in Tampa Bay. The weather was and still is the one downside because during the games early in the season the weather can get low with wind being able to rattle the ball around in the air. Target Field has given the team the proper financial flexibility to compete with the big boys of the American League if need be.  While the club was hovering around the $100 MIL for team salary the last few years, this year has seen a regression.  It is good to know that the ownership will invest in the talent once the team is competitive again.

The Minnesota Twins were almost destroyed by baseball in the early millennium.  Soon all of us were learning exactly what the word ‘contraction’ meant.

MLB had slated a team in both of the NL and the AL to be expunged from their current teams list.  The Montreal Expos were the NL franchise, while the Twinkies were the AL team. Of course the Expos were taken over by baseball – before their 2005 move to Washington – and subsequent sale to Ted Lerner

So what happened to Minny?  The Twins reeled off several successful seasons, built a great nucleus of players that helped the franchise make the playoffs 6 times in the decade.

With the club  being competitive, the fans came back at the turnstiles, giving the eventual go ahead to build a new outdoor stadium in downtown Minneapolis (Target Field.)

The team won a Division in the 1st year of existence, however lean times have been rampant on the organization after that season.  Justin Morneau and Joe Mauer have both battled the injury bug, plus the Starting Pitching has never materialized into anything great.

The club does have a decent Minor League System.  With that in mind, couple with the teams brass probably trading veterans such as Justin Morneau and Josh Willingham near the Trade Deadline this season, perhaps the turnaround for the team in the standings will not take that long.

The Twins, Athletics, Marlins and Tampa Bay Rays were the 1st teams to debunk the myth that you have to spend an outrageous fortune in order to field a playoff caliber team in multiple years in a row. 

Organizational Drafting and savvy Free Agent signings and trades have helped pave the way to a decent legacy.

There is hope for the club in the long term.  Maybe the franchise can find the next Kirby Puckett, Kent Hrbek, Gary Gaetti or Brad Radke.  Or even go one step further and find a Hall of Fame Slugger like Harmon Killebrew – or an electric phenom like Rod Carew.

The Twins are still drawing north of 30000 fans per game, and the team is only 33 – 38 this year.  I am hoping that if the team continues to decline that the fans still go to the yard.  Target Field is a great Ballpark – and knowing the Minnesota organization, the team should be able to field a balanced team in a few years.

Joe Mauer is easily the face of the Twins and possibly the entire city of Minnesota. He has a plethora of awards under his belt, including an MVP, and 5 All-Star Game appearances. The Twins feel secure positioning him behind the plate or at First Base. He is also used as the Designated Hitter often. He is one of the more consistent players in the league and has led the Twins to 4 Postseason appearances.  Joe Mauer is hitting back at his usual .330 clip this season.  He is still a guy to build around

Jeff Kleiner:  “I have been a sports fan since the first Baseball game I went to at Comisky Park in Chicago in 1959, when baseball for me turned from black and white to color. I have attended or watched thousands of games, always paying attention to statistics, rosters and salaries of all professional sports.

Luckily I had the advantage of watching WGN TV and seeing hundreds of games in the 60’s. Collecting Baseball Cards and then later dealing them gave me an extra sense of the sport, both good and bad.” For all of your Salaries, Roster and Depth Charts for all 4 Major Sports (entire organization – Minors and Majors) click here or Follow Me on twitter

About chuckbooth3023

I played competitive baseball until 18 years old and had offers to play NCAA Division 1 University Baseball at Liberty University. Post-concussion symptoms from previous football and baseball head injuries forced me to retire by age 19. After two nearly made World Record Attempts in 2008, I set a New World Record by visiting all 30 MLB Parks (from 1st to last pitch) in only 24 Calendar Days in the summer 0f 2009. In April of 2012, I established yet another new GWR by visiting all 30 Parks in only 23 Calendar Days! You can see the full schedule at the page of the www.mlbreports.com/gwr-tracker . In 2015, I watched 224 MLB Games, spanning all 30 MLB Parks in 183 Days. Read about that World Record Journey at https://mlbreports.com/183in2015/229sked2015/
