And it isn’t even September
This past Friday night in Toronto Alex Wimmers became the 29th pitcher used (counting Eduardo Escobar’s one relief appearance) by the Twins this season and 47th player overall. The Twins record for pitchers used in a season was 25 in 2012 (catcher Drew Butera made one relief appearance). Eleven different pitchers have made starts and 23 have made relief appearances. The Twins most players used in a season is 48 in 2014.
The numbers of players used by the Minnesota Twins this year probably won’t equal the number of games the Twins win this season but it will be very close. Wouldn’t that be something if the Twins used more players than the number of games they won?
