The Minnesota Twins filled one of their open spots in the 2020 starting rotation last week when Jake Odorizzi accepted a qualifying offer from the team. Although the one-year, $17.8 million deal is nothing to laugh at, Odorizzi revealed how much he likes pitching in Minnesota during an interview on MLB Network’s Hot Stove Monday morning.
“I really enjoy Minnesota,” Odorizzi said in the interview. “The people up there are fantastic. Obviously the team is really good. Our front office does a great job. Having [manager Rocco Baldelli] there is a great familiarity with me.
