The foundation is in place in the Twin Cities, so now is a great time to purchase single game tickets and watch the Twins at Target Field! A young core of players led by power-hitting Brian Dozier is maturing under manager Paul Molitor and ready to challenge the AL Central powers of Cleveland, Detroit and Kansas City.
The first 13 home games are against division rivals before Boston and Texas also make visits. The New York Yankees stop by for three games in July, and the Twins will renew their interleague rivalry with Milwaukee. Check out the full season schedule below and figure out what day is a great day for Twins baseball at Target Field!
Dozier will be the focal point of the offense after hitting a career-high 42 homers in 2016. Outfielder Miguel Sano improved his numbers in his first full season in the majors and will provide a nice complement to Dozier in the lineup. Big things are expected from center fielder Byron Buxton, who had 10 homers and 10 steals last year.
The pitching staff is a work in progress, with Ervin Santana trying to regroup from a seven-win 2016. Tyler Duffey took his lumps in his first full season, but there’s plenty of potential after striking out 114 in 133 innings. The good news for Minnesota is the bullpen is in good hands with Brandon Kintzler, who had 17 saves.
