FILE - In this Thursday, June 8, 2017, file photo, Minnesota Twins center fielder Byron Buxton lands after making a leaping catch of a line drive hit by Seattle Mariners' Robinson Cano during the fifth inning of a baseball game in Seattle. The Twins were thoroughly beaten during a four-game sweep over the weekend by the Cleveland Indians, losing their lead in the AL Central in the process. But the primary reason the Twins were there in the first place as one of baseball's most surprising teams has been a vast improvement in their defense, the third and most-overlooked phase of the game.

FILE - In this Jan. 27, 2017, file photo, Minnesota Twins chief baseball officer Derek Falvey addresses the media as he stands in front of a 1987 Twins World Series championship photo collage during a luncheon prior to the baseball team's annual TwinsFest in Minneapolis. The Twins have the No. 1 pick in the MLB draft for the first time since 2001. It’s the first major decision for Falvey, the fresh-faced, 34-year-old who was brought in from Cleveland this winter to energize a Twins front office that was well-respected, but presided over a six-year playoff drought that bottomed out with last season’s 103 losses.
