Celestino was included in Minnesota's 60-man player pool ahead of summer camp before the 2020 season begins, MLB.com reports.

When the Twins acquired Celestino in July 2018 from Houston in the Ryan Pressly trade, he had some slap hitter qualities, struggling to impact the baseball. While he only hit .174 with six strikeouts and one home run in 24 plate appearances in big-league spring training, Celestino's showed added strength after gaining 15 pounds. He's likely to spend the full season at Minnesota's alternate training site, but his inclusion shows the team is high on his potential.
