2022 Game 149: Minnesota Twins at Kansas City Royals

Bailey Ober
Daniel Lynch

Let's take a look at the Twins traded away in the offseason, or deadline for Mahle, and how they performed compared to the players acquired.
Twins traded away this year:

Mitch Garver2151000.40.3
Isiah Kiner-Falefa490862.71.1
Josh Donaldson4951012.61.8
Spencer Steer64840.10.0
Brent Rooker3615-0.5-0.4
Taylor Rogers60.1127-0.90.9

DRS likes Kiner-Falefa's fielding but UZR and OAA rate him as average. Similar with Donaldson but OAA agrees with DRS.

Rogers has replicated his 2020 season where he has a below average ERA but above average/good FIP. Although his FIP since the trade to Milwaukee has also been bad but it was very good with San Diego.

Acquired Twins this year:

Gary Sánchez425870.51.1
Gio Urshela4951122.51.6
Chris Paddack22.11050.20.9
Emilio Pagán58.0126-0.8-0.3
Tyler Mahle16.11150.1-0.1

  1. I'm curious as to why you left out Jorge Lopez, Sandy Leon, and Michael Fulmer. Was it because the Twins didn't trade any major leaguers for them?

    1. Yes. Same with Sonny Gray.

      Mahle is borderline because the Twins didn't trade any major leaguers but Steer was called up soon after.

  2. Cory says that last time out, Ober was on a pitch count. Before that game, Rocco had said he was not on a pitch count. I don't have a particular problem with him being on a pitch count in that game, but why not be honest about it?

      1. Well, Cory specified that the pitch count last time was seventy pitches. I suppose he could've misunderstood, but he was pretty specific.

  3. Nick Gordon's RHP/LHP spilts

    RHP (314 PA) .298/.337/.486/.823
    LHP (78 PA) .221/.299/.309/.608

    He probably turns into a serviceable platoon dude which really aint a bad way to have a career
