Fox Sports North and the Minnesota Twins announced their broadcast team for the upcoming Twins season and Justin Morneau was a surprise addition.

The former Twin has been added as an analyst for the 2018 season.  Morneau will join familiar faces like Dick Bremer, who is returning for his 35th season in the booth, Bert Blyleven, Jack Morris, Roy Smalley, LaTroy Hawkins and Torii Hunter.

I love how former Twins have returned to be a part of the broadcast team.  It's great for Twins fans to reconnect with past players, who can also offer terrific insight.

Fox Sports North will begin televising Twins games during Spring Training, with the first broadcast scheduled for February 22.
