The article presents information related to the baseball team Minnesota Twins. Acquiring Luis Castillo from the team Florida Martins was a critical move for the Twins. The team didn't have a consistent No. 2 hitter last season and the top of the lineup struggled trying to spark the offense. Veteran additions should help alleviate some of the offensive issues, but questions remain.
