The Minnesota Twins, much like the Tampa Bay Rays, have been on a tear to start the 2023 season.
In fact, the Twins and Rays are the only remaining teams that are still undefeated to start the season.
Much of the Twins’ success is thanks in large part to the hot hitting of outfielder Trevor Larnach.
The 26-year-old has multiple hits in three of the Twins’ first four games and has an average of .438.
On Tuesday, Larnach got a chance to chat with Alanna Rizzo of MLB Network on High Heat, where he discussed what has been working for him thus far.

Larnach is 7-for-19 with a home run, five RBI, four runs scored, and a .750 slugging percentage.
The 26-year-old says that his preparation during the offseason and the lessons he has learned from previous seasons have helped him get off to such a good start.
In recent years, Larnach has dealt with more than his fair share of injuries, but feels that he has learned a lot from those injuries and previous struggles.
Larnach is also working with a new trainer this season, and says that keeping his body and mind fresh and healthy is the ultimate key to being able to stay out on the field and continue to play.
Finally, Rizzo asked Larnach a pressing question, acknowledging that the young outfielder has tried to push himself through injuries in recent years, as was stated by manager Rocco Baldelli.
The outfielder says the key is to be smart with his body and to do everything he can to stay healthy and continue producing.NEXT: Joey Gallo Is Off To A Hot Start With His New Team
