Twins turn to inexperienced pitchers to fill rotation holes

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) The Minnesota Twins have holes in their rotation and inexperience pitchers might fill them.

After a stagnant free-agent market this offseason that has carried over into the first week of camp, the Twins have been unable to land any of their top targets. Most recently left-handers Jason Vargas, who signed with the New York Mets on Friday and Jamie Garcia, who signed with the Blue Jays on Thursday.

With no outside additions, Aaron Slegers, Stephen Gonsalves, Felix Jorge and Fernando Romero will all have an opportunity to showcase themselves in big league camp. Any other season, this group would all be destined for the team's Triple-A affiliate to start the season in Rochester. This season, however, there is a chance that one or more of them breaks camp in the rotation.
