MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Twins have remade their rotation after a rough time on the mound. They'll have at least three new guys in the five-man group.

The real solution might be a few years away.

Two prospects acquired by trade this offseason, Trevor May and Alex Meyer, are waiting in the wings. Former first-round draft pick Kyle Gibson is closer to contributing, but he's coming off Tommy John ligament replacement surgery on his elbow and will likely be on an innings limit in 2013.

This might not be of much help to the Twins, but there's hope in the organization for a resurgence of strong starting pitching. After enduring some barren years, the farm system has slowly been restocked with some top-tier talent.
