The Minnesota rotation was a strong point, with Badack, Joe RyanAnd Chris ArcherAnd Sony GrayAnd Billy Uber (currently in IL for 10 days with a hip injury), and Josh Winder Every step is good to start the year. Dylan Bundy It also looks like he’s on the cusp of a comeback from COVID-IL, so Bundy could go straight into Paddack’s spin-off if Paddack is already sidelined.
