The Minnesota Twins are on the upswing. After finishing behind the Cleveland Indians the past two seasons in the AL Central, the Twins have the makings of a contender this year. The roster is filled with young talent, starting with Byron Buxton, Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario in the outfield, Miguel Sano at the hot corner and José Berríos on the mound. It looks to be a two-team race again this year between the Twins and Tribe for the AL Central crown.
Twins fans who also happen to be cable TV cord cutters have a number of ways to watch the Twins whether you're in the Twin Cities or an out-of-market follower of the club.
