Former Twins in the Postseason

The Twins are outside looking in on the playoffs, but that doesn't mean that the Twins' fans have no rooting interests. Former Twins are on several Postseason Rosters, which makes the games more interesting for me to watch (not that playoff baseball was uninteresting in the first place).

Houston Astros:

Carlos Gomez:

Pat Neshek:

Honorable mention: Alex Presley and Sam Deduno

New York Yankees:


Honorable mention: Jim Kaat is still doing TV now and then for the Yankees, and Garrett Jones, a former Twins farmhand played in the regular season for New York.

Chicago Cubs:


Honorable Mention: Ron Coomer does radio for the Cubs.

Pittsburgh Pirates:

Pedro Florimon:

Francisco Liriano:

Vance Worley:

Honorable Mention: Deolis Guerra on the Pirates 60-Day DL, was part of the trade that sent Johan Santana to the Mets. He was the last player to play in the Twins org. from that trade, but was granted minor league free agency following the 2014 season.

Texas Rangers:


Toronto Blue Jays:

Chris Collabello:

Ben Revere:

R.A. Dickey:
what gives? I don't have a Twins card of R.A. ? Do you?

Liam Hendriks:

LaTroy Hawkins:
this card is from 1995. 1995!!!

Honorable Mention: Steve Tolleson, Danny Valencia (now with Oakland), and Andrew Albers all played for the Blue Jays at some point in the season.

New York Mets:

Michael Cuddyer:

Sean Gilmartin:

Rule V selection in 2015, never pitched for the big league Twins
Tim Stauffer:
A disaster out of the pen for the Twins, he didn't last long enough to get a card.

Los Angeles Dodgers:


Honorable Mention: Scott Baker started two games for the Dodgers this year. Also Vin Scully, who was no connection to the Twins, but who should always be mentioned honorably.

Saint Louis Cardinals:


Kansas City Royals:

Kendrys Morales:
Another Free Agent that couldn't make a dent in the Twins record books.

Drew Butera:

Honorable Mention: Yohan Pino appeared in 7 games for the Royals including one start during the regular season.

The Blue Jays are the team with the most Twins, so they are the team I am pulling for now. It was a bummer that Hawkins got the loss in game 2, hoping for that series to go a little longer.
