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

Wiel would seem an odd inclusion as a 27-year old player at Triple-A not considered a top prospect, but he hit 24 home runs last season with an .834 OPS. He gives the Twins a veteran bat at first base if the club needs a short-term callup. He'll likely spend most of the season at Minnesota's alternate training site.
