The Twins ranked 18th out of the 30 teams in Major League Baseball

Yesterday Forbes published its annual estimate of every Major League Baseball team's net worth.

Altogether the league's 30 teams are collectively valued at $36 billion, a 48 percent increase from last year. It was the largest collective increase since Forbes started doing the rankings in 1998, and even the lowly Twins, coming off four straight losing seasons, saw a decent bump.

The team is now worth $895 million and made $21.3 million off of $223 million in revenue, according to Forbes.

That valuation slots the team at 18th out of 30 teams in Major League Baseball.

Here are Forbes estimates for other major Minnesota sports teams:

Timberwolves: $625 million (29 out of 30 teams) Wild: $370 million (17 out of 30) Vikings: $1.15 billion (20 out of 32)

The Twins' $21.3 million profit last year was the largest out of the state's four major sports teams. The Wild made the playoffs but lost $5.4 million, the Vikings made $5 million in 2013 (2014 NFL valuations haven't come out yet) and the Timberwolves cleared $6.9 million.
