Twins' staff holds the key to team loaded with offense

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Expecting another big season from their high-octane offense, the Minnesota Twins hope to pitch well enough to win a second straight AL Central title.

Minnesota set a major-league record with 307 homers and was eighth with a 4.18 ERA last year.

"We had a pretty darn good pitching staff last year statistically speaking," said right-hander Jake Odorizzi, who went 15-7 with a 3.51 ERA in 30 starts. "You didn't hear anything about it because we had such a historic offense. As with any staff, I think we're fine with it. We don't need the notoriety. This isn't the Nationals' pitching staff, the guys that have tremendous staffs that always get talked about."
