Willson Contreras' Fit With the Twins, Joe Pohlad's New Role and José Abreu Signing With the Astros

Open in playerListen on);
Brandon Warne not only hosts Locked on Twins, but also runs Access Twins -- a Substack newsletter dedicated to independent coverage of the Minnesota Twins. Warne has covered the Twins in some form or fashion for more than a decade in all forms, and is returning to Locked on Twins after a four-year hiatus.
Episode details

The Minnesota Twins are in need of a competent catcher to pair with Ryan Jeffers for the 2023 season and beyond. Both Gary Sánchez and Sandy León are entering free agency after poor offensive seasons, opening up major holes behind the dish. The best free agent on the market is former Cub Willson Contreras, who may cost more than what many teams are willing to pay for a 30-year-old defensive question. Should the Twins get involved? Plus, Jim Pohlad hands off day-to-day operations to Joe Pohlad and José Abreu signs with the Houston Astros.
