The Minnesota Twins have one of the best shortstops in the MLB, Carlos Correa, plus he has the highest base salary among players at the same position in the league. The Twins' roster is relatively good, but they haven't won a World Series since 1991.

So far, the Twins' record is 18-11 overall, the team plays better at home than on the road with 11 wins and 4 losses. The most recent series was a home win against Oakland Athetics (Gray's ex-team). The Twins play them again on May 16, 2022.
