The Twins are off to a rather cold start, and their offense is colder than the weather says Brian Murphy of Minnesota started the year 0-7 and hitting .091 with runners in scoring position and struck out 79 times.

Thirty-eight times in MLB history have started 0-7. None of those thirty-eight teams made the players, and only two finished with winning records (although none have done it in the past 33 years).

More from around the American League Central:

  • Max Rieper of Royals Review talked about how April is the time for Royals fans to freak out about the bullpen, with some Twitter proof to back it up.
  • Upon the return of Michael Brantley and Lonnie Chisenhall, the Indians outfields will see some major changes. Currently, the Indians are rolling with four outfielders: Rajai Davis, Tyler Naquin, Marlon Byrd and Collin Cowgill.
  • For the latest edition of ESPN The Magazine, Adam LaRoche opened up about his decision to walk away from the game of baseball, all for his son Drake. In his explanation, LaRoche understands the criticism that some threw his way for raising his son inside a baseball locker room, going as far to say that he doesn't think it's the way for everyone to raise their kid.
  • For the first time in his baseball career, Detroit Tigers catcher James McCann is headed to the disabled list. The 25-year-old will hit the shelf for the next 2-4 weeks for a sprained right ankle.
