Twins | Minny manager talks top of the lineup

Mon, 30 Mar 2015 14:32:01 -0700

Minnesota Twins SS Danny Santana, 2B Brian Dozier and 1B Joe Mauer will bat first through third in the order, respectively, according to manager Paul Molitor. Molitor noted the rest of the lineup will change based on matchups.

Fantasy Tip: FantasyScore players will want to note the Twins scored the sixth most runs in baseball last season, and their lineup might be underrated. Against weak pitchers, stacking a few Twins is a sound strategy, especially with Santana ($4,500, 9.0% of cap), Dozier ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) and Mauer ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) carrying mid-range prices.
