1. KANSAS CITY Kansas City lost pitcher Johnny Cueto and utili2. DETROIT tyman Ben Zobrist in free agency and didn’t blow 3. MINNESOTA anyone away with its offseason moves. But that’s
never been the way of GM Dayton Moore, who fills 4. CHICAGO
his lineup with guys who can run and defend and 5. CLEVELAND
assembles elite bullpens where his guys excel in their roles. Back are most key pieces, like No. 1 starter Edinson Volquez, center fielder Lorenzo Cain, left fielder Alex Gordon and corner infielders Mike Moustakas and Eric Hosmer. In other words, the same formula that won it all in 2015. Don’t sleep on the Tigers, who can hit and added pitcher Jordan Zimmermann to the front of a rotation that could surprise if Justin Verlander repeats his second-half form, or the Twins, whose lineup features exciting young players Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton and a staff that made huge strides under pitching coach Neil Allen.
