MLB: Which Teams Will Finish in the Cellar This Season?

4 of 7

AL Central: Minnesota Twins

Minnesota will finish last due to pitching.

In the off-season, the Twins traded their best pitcher, Francisco Liriano, to the Chicago White Sox, and everyone that remains in the starting rotation isn’t really that strong.

Everyone in the top five, for example, averaged just 5.5 strikeouts per nine innings pitched. The rest of the AL Central teams are very strong with their bats, so Minnesota’s pitching just won’t cut it.

The Twins are currently tied for last place. Don’t expect them to come out of that position at any point of this season.
