Minnesota Twins

The Minnesota Twins are on the upswing. After finishing behind the Cleveland Indians the past two seasons in the AL Central, the Twins have the makings of a contender this year. The roster is filled with young talent, starting with Byron Buxton, Max Kepler and Eddie Rosario in the outfield, Miguel Sano at the hot corner and José Berríos on the mound. It looks to be a two-team race again this year between the Twins and Tribe for the AL Central crown.

Twins fans who also happen to be cable TV cord cutters have a number of ways to watch the Twins whether you’re in the Twin Cities or an out-of-market follower of the club.

Out-of-market Twins streaming

If you are a Twins fan living outside of the Land of 10,000 Lakes, you can’t watch the Twins on Fox Sports North. You can, however, stream their games live with an MLB.TV subscription.

You’ve got two options:

  • Pay $119 a year (or $25 a month) to be able to watch every out-of-market game live or on-demand, and the in-market (home) team with a 90-minute delay from the end of the game.
  • Pay $92 a year to watch a single, out-of-market team. In this case, the Twinkies and nobody else.

Both MLB.TV plans also include streams of home and away radio broadcasts. The radio broadcasts aren’t subject to the blackout rule, so you can listen to home team games live.

CNET may get a commission from retail offers.
