"We haven't seen anyone offensively put on a show," Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said. "It has been awfully quiet on that side."
Choosing to focus on putting a solid starting rotation together for the 2014 season, the Twins had little luck in acquiring position players during the offseason.
"You'd like to see signs of life to give you a little conviction and belief, even if it is Spring Training," Antony said. "Certain guys need to step forward."
With a heavy dose of left-handers expected to be in the starting lineup come Opening Day, Antony is concerned about how that may affect the team's offensive numbers.
"It is certainly a problem," Antony said. "However, it isn't a huge concern that we are fairly left-handed. We have a lot of lefties and have to learn how to work with that."
