MINNEAPOLIS — The Minnesota Twins begin their 2022 season with six road games against the White Sox (March 31-April 3) and the newly named Cleveland Guardians (April 4-6).
The Twins will then host the Seattle Mariners for their home opener at Target Field on Thursday, April 7.
According to the schedule, the home opener is part of a six-game homestand with the Mariners (April 7-11) and Los Angeles Dodgers (April 12-13).
Twins officials also announced in the news release that "for the first time, all Twins home weekday (Monday-Thursday) night games throughout the entire season will have a 6:40 p.m. scheduled first pitch. All 2022 game times, along with broadcast information, will be announced at a later date."
The 2022 season will have the Twins playing a 20-game Interleague slate against the National League West, along with the traditional rivalry series with the Milwaukee Brewers (July 12-13 at Target Field and July 26-27 at American Family Field).
The August 26-28 series marks the first-ever Target Field appearance for the San Francisco Giants.
The Giants were scheduled to play the Twins in the original, pre-pandemic 2020 schedule.
San Francisco is the only team that has not yet played at Target Field since the ballpark opened in 2010.
