Marwin became a free agent after the 2018 season, and given how highly prized players who can play several positions well are in today’s game, it would have been expected that he would have a lot of interest, but that wasn’t the case.
He didn’t find a team until the last week of February 2019, and it was a bit of a surprise when he inked a two-year, $21 million deal with the Minnesota Twins.
With the Twins, he played 114 games and hit.264 with 15 homers and 55 RBIs, which was fewer than he did with the Astros.
Given that he was playing in an extremely favorable hitting environment, with his team breaking the all-time record for home runs in a season, his OPS+ was only 94.
He continued to play all over the field on defense, with the right field being his most common position, followed by third base, first base, and left field.
The Twins won 101 games and won the division, but they were defeated in three games by the New York Yankees in the postseason. In the three games, he went 3 for 11 with a double, but he didn’t score or drive in any runs.
