Twins Rumors: 3 Players Not Expected Back Next Season

After a busy offseason, the Minnesota Twins ended the 2022 season with an underwhelming 78-84 record. Some poor play down the stretch forced them out of playoff contention, and now they are heading into this upcoming offseason with an array of questions. They also are expected to lose some key players as well. Let's look at three Twins who will likely be gone in 2023.

Carlos Correa: Carlos Correa has already announced that he will be opting out of his contract with the Twins; thus becoming a UFA for the second straight offseason. Baseball fans knew there was a good chance this would occur, and now the 28-year-old will be looking for a big contract. Given the fact that he had a very good season, expect a high-market club to outbid Minnesota for his services.

Gary Sanchez:
The Twins are also likely to move on from Gary Sanchez this season. The power-hitting catcher will be hitting the open market and should get interest from clubs looking to upgrade behind the plate. 

Michael Fulmer: Michael Fulmer emerged as a dependable reliever this season, and there will be plenty of teams interested in him during free agency because of it. Unfortunately, that likely means that Minnesota will lose him to another team.
