Q&A: Twins president of operations Derek Falvey doesn’t view 2022 as a rebuild year

As Major League Baseball rounds third and heads for home in the 2021 season, the Twins never got to first base. They have never fully recovered from a slow start.

Outside of being 10-9 in August, the Twins have had a losing month every step of the 2021 way. A 9-15 April record, followed by a stretch with 10 losses in 12 games in May have doomed them.

We touched on that and what 2022 could bring with president of operations Derek Falvey.

What it’ll be interesting to follow the rest of this season is what prospects get the call up. Pitcher Joe Ryan and infielder Jose Miranda with AAA-St. Paul are both prime candidates. Rosters expand from 26 to 28 players on Sept. 1, although both would first have to be added to the 40-man roster.
