25-Man Roster Projection Update

Judging from the various articles and blog posts in the Twins orbit the last couple of days, this is the time of year to put your guesses on the record. Since I have posted my 25-man roster projections a few times before, this is just the latest update.

As it turns out, there is only one change from the last one I posted at the  end of 2011. The signing of Joel Zumaya makes him a definite roster-spot holder unless he starts the season on the disabled list. I do not have any good information about his physical condition or readiness to compete, so will go on the assumption that he will be ready by opening day.

With that brief lead-in, here is my updated roster:

Everyday lineup:

  • C Joe Mauer
  • 1B Justin Morneau
  • 2B Alexi Casilla
  • SS Jamey Carroll
  • 3B Danny Valencia
  • LF Ben Revere/Trevor Plouffe
  • CF Denard Span
  • RF Josh Willingham
  • DH Ryan Doumit


  • C Drew Butera
  • INF Luke Hughes
  • INF Tsuyoshi Nishioka
  • OF Trevor Plouffe/Ben Revere


  • S Carl Pavano
  • S Scott Baker
  • S Francisco Liriano
  • S Nick Blackburn
  • S Jason Marquis
  • Long Relief Anthony Swarzak
  • Closer Matt Capps
  • LHP Brian Duensing
  • LHP Glen Perkins
  • RHP Joel Zumaya
  • RHP Alex Burnett
  • RHP Terry Doyle
