    • Morneau LaRoche Morales Singleton Teixeira

      Since the league wide implement of the shift, Teixeira has been reduced to nothing more than a RHB, platoon batter vs LHP. Not to mention his bad wrists & propensity for DL stints.

      Morneau hits in the Rockies' lineup sandwiched between CarGo, Tulo, & Rosario, and half the time at Coors Field. LaRoche is solid & his metrics are in line with Morneau. He just doesn't have the Coors Field edge. Morales has an established history as a plus power, above league average hitter. If the Twins can stay healthy with Willingham & Arcia, then he has a chance to hit sandwiched between Dozier, Mauer, Willingham, & Arcia. That's not bad at all. Singleton is a young prospect who will have his ups & downs, most likely, and the net result won't be outstanding. He does have a few tools that you can bank on, though, which are power, draws walks, and handles RHP.
