I created a predicted roster for the Twins as spring training was opening. We now have a couple weeks of games behind us, as well as new information from spring training camp. I have been doing daily updates of the competition, but I thought it would be interesting to see how things look right now.
To be clear, this is a prediction that will almost certainly change, although my opening day lineup hasn't changed at all since last time.
Opening Day Lineup:
Hicks - CF
Carroll - 2B
Mauer - C
Willingham - LF
Morneau - 1B
Doumit - DH
Parmlee - RF
Plouffe - 3B
Florimon - SS
Worley - SP
Rotation: Worley, Diamond, Pelfrey, Correia, Gibson
Bullpen: Perkins, Burton, Duensing, Burnett, Fien, Pressly, Wood
Fielders: Mastroianni, Escobar, Dozier, Butera
On the edge: Hendricks, Benson, Roenicke, Robertson, Thielbar, Boggs
The biggest change is Gibson as the 5th starter. DeVries, who I had as the 5th starter, is getting his first start this coming week. But I think Hendricks and Gibson will have to show they aren't ready for him to be considered.
Pressly replaced Robertson in the bullpen. Dozier replaced Sobolewski on the bench.
