2023 Player Outlook
The Twins exercised their $12.5 million option on veteran righty Sonny Gray, assuring that he will be back for a second season with the team. Even though he missed significant time with various injuries Gray was solid when he did take the mound. He ended the season with an 8-5 record and 3.08 ERA/1.13 WHIP to go along with 117 strikeouts in 119.2 innings. Even though Gray’s average fastball was only 92.1 mph last season (a career low) he continues to pitch well when healthy and will again take full advantage of a pitcher-friendly Target Field in 2023.
