Episode details

Caleb Thielbar went from an awesome story to the Twins' best left-handed reliever in just a few seasons. Thielbar's second half of the 2022 season showed that he can be among the game's best left-handed bullpen weapons, with elite batted-ball data and expected results. Thielbar posted a sterling 1.50 ERA after the All-Star break, regularly coming in to put out early fires ahead of Jhoan Durán. Should the Twins pair Thielbar with another strong lefty in 2023? Or is that lefty already in the organization?
