2015

Achter is a late bloomer as the former 46th-round draft pick carved out a relief role in the minors and continued to be productive at each level. He had a 2.38 ERA and 8.6 K/9 at Triple-A which resulted in a September callup to the Twins. He struck out just five batters in 11 innings in the majors, but otherwise held his own with a 3.27 ERA. While he doesn't have an overpowering fastball, his minor league strikeout rates and good control suggest he could be an effective reliever in the majors. He'll try to win a spot in Minnesota's bullpen this spring.
