Minnesota Twins Officially Let 3 Players Go

Miguel Sano, Dylan Bundy, and Chris Archer are now free agents, as the Minnesota Twins have officially declined all of their options. This was expected, but it is now finalized.

Sano's option was at $14 million, but given his knee trouble and struggles at the plate when healthy this season, it makes sense that Minnesota is moving on. In 20 games, he had just five hits in 60 at-bats. Even though it was a horrendous year for Sano all around, there should be a market for the one-time All-Star. Keep in mind, he has two 30-home run seasons on his resume, including one in 2021. 

It makes sense that the Twins are not accepting Bundy's $11 million team option. The veteran struggled in his lone season as a Twin, as he had an 8-8 record to go along with a 4.89 ERA. Overall, just not enough to earn that kind of payday, so he will now be testing his luck on the open market. 

Archer's release is not surprising, either. The former All-Star had a 2-8 record and 4.56 ERA in 25 starts for the Twins this year. He will be hoping to bounce back for his new team in 2023.
