The Minnesota Twins have been on the outside looking in with regards to the World Series with plenty of talent on this team but always seemingly falling short, however, with 2021 comes a new season and this Twins high powered batting lineup will look to get rolling when they play the Detroit Tigers this Monday at Comerica Park.
The Twins were able to show off those awesome bats in their last game beating the Milwaukee Brewers by a score of 8-2 with Max Kepler and Miguel Sano batting in 5 of the 8 runs they scored. Michael Pineda started that last game and it ended up being a great start to the season for him striking out 5 of the Brewers and not allowing a single earned run to be scored.
We do know how the Twins want to play ball though, and given their overall pitching staff I would expect many more high scoring games then low scoring games with this batting lineup full of home run hitters.
The other thing that the Twins have that many other teams will struggle with this year is depth, as they really can hurt you all the way through the lineup with guys who bat down the order like Max Kepler and Buxton consistently delivering on offense.
Matt Shoemaker will be getting the ball here for the Twins and it is very tough to know what we will see from him here, as he has not been able to pitch much in recent season due to a slew of injuries, but when he is on he has great stuff, so if he is coming into this game like the pitcher he used to be the Tigers are likely in for a very long afternoon.
The Tigers were denied the sweep in their last game, as Cleveland was finally able to pick up a victory with that last contest ending in blowout fashion with a final score of 9-3. This Tigers team has to feel good about themselves though, as taking a series off of what is likely to be the class team of the division has to give this locker room some added belief they can compete despite garnering zero hype in the offseason.
Just like Shoemaker there are plenty of questions over Jose Urena who is a veteran with at times outstanding stuff, but he did not look all that good during Spring Training and you are not going to find many tougher tasks than this Twins batting lineup in terms of pitching assignments.

Yes the Twins have an outstanding batting lineup, but these are two guys on the mound who can really throw some great pitches, and I think this is a good environment for both of these guys to thrive.
