    The 2013 Minnesota Twins season was the 53rd season for the franchise in Minnesota, and the 113th overall in the American League.

    The Twins started the 2013 season on April 1, with a game against the Detroit Tigers (losing Opening Day 2-4).[1] The Twins ended their season with a 5-1 loss against the Cleveland Indians.[2]

    The Twins finished their season with a 66-96 record, although they finished 4th in the American League Central standings ahead of the Chicago White Sox, avoiding a last place finish for the first time since 2010. The team continued to struggle with offense and bullpen rotation, despite the off-season acquisitions of veterans Vance Worley, Mike Pelfrey and Kevin Correia.[3]
