Minnesota Twins SPs Samuel Deduno, Vance Worley, Scott Diamond and Kyle Gibson are competing for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, and assistant GM Rob Antony has said he doesn't believe there's a clear-cut front-runner. Deduno, Worley and Diamond don't have options remaining.
MLB.com reporter Rhett Bolinger believes Deduno appears to be the slight favorite because of his success in 2013 (3.83 ERA, 67 strikeouts and 41 walks in 108 innings). He appears to be healthy after having gone arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder last September, too. Manager Ron Gardenhire indicated that he'd like Deduno to make the club one way or another following the right-hander's three scoreless innings on Sunday, March 9. "He's filthy," Gardenhire remarked.
Fantasy Tip: Whoever wins this job is unlikely to have relevance in mixed leagues, but all of them have either produced the results or boasted the promise, or both, to be useful in them. Deduno and Gibson fit the bill most, but it's mostly AL-only managers who should be following them.

There appears to be no clear-cut front-runner for the Minnesota Twins' final rotation spot between SPs Samuel Deduno, Vance Worley, Scott Diamond and Kyle Gibson, but Deduno may be the slight favorite because of his success last year. Deduno has looked healthy this spring after having arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder last September. Manager Ron Gardenhire indicated he'd like Deduno on the roster as either a starter or reliever this year. Worley is also healthy after having shoulder problems last year, and he's roughly 25 pounds lighter than 2013. Gibson might be on the outside looking in at the end of camp, because he still has minor league options left.
