1968 Minnesota Twins Roster

The off-season saw the Minnesota Twins trade favorites Jim Grant and Zoilo Versalles to the Los Angeles Dodgers for Johnny Roseboro, Bob Miller and Ron Perranoski and the promising Jim Merritt was sent to Cincinnati for shortstop Leo Cardenas. Perranoski toiled in a secondary role this season to Al Worthington, who led the league with 17 saves. But after a promising start, the Twins fell to 24 games out of first as Harmon Killebrew hurt his hamstring as a starter in the All-Star Game. Tony Oliva, also an All-Star, wrecked his shoulder and was out-for-the-season in August, and Jim Kaat started the season on the disabled list. Kaat did win another Gold Glove and Rod Carew started in the All-Star game but attendance continued to slip to 1,143,257.
