  • Homer Bailey, RHP
  • Jose Berrios, RHP
  • Tyler Clippard, RHP
  • Randy Dobnak, RHP
  • Tyler Duffey, RHP
  • Rich Hill, LHP
  • Zack Littell, RHP
  • Kenta Maeda, RHP
  • Trevor May, RHP
  • Taylor Rogers, LHP
  • Sergio Romo, RHP
  • Devin Smeltzer. LHP
  • Cody Stashak, RHP
  • Lewis Thorpe, LHP

  • Willians Astudillo, 10-Day, R/R
  • Jake Odorizzi, 10-Day, RHP

Restricted list (2)

  • Michael Pineda, RHP
  • Fernando Romero, RHP

Roster notes:

  • The Twins go with Aaron Whitefield over Travis Blankenhorn. Whitefield will fill in almost 100% as a pinch runner or fielder.
  • Jake Odorizzi will start on the IL, likely only for one turn around the rotation. Lewis Thorpe, who was on the bubble, takes his spot for now.
  • Willians Astudillo has not yet recorded two negative COVID-19 tests so he is not on the active roster.
