Ben Paulsen: Cut loose by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulsen was released by the Twins on Monday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Paulsen batted just .230 with a 20.3 percent strikeout rate in 74 at-bats with Triple-A Rochester, so the Twins decided to cut ties with him in order to make room for the higher-upside prospects in their system. Despite being kicked out of the organization, the 29-year-old does have a decent bit of MLB service time to his name, so he could find a new job fairly soon with an organization needing depth in the corner outfield or at first base.

Twins' Ben Paulsen: Shifted to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulsen was reassigned to minor-league camp Thursday, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Paulsen was hoping to catch on with some reserve at-bats at first base, outfield and designated hitter, but Minnesota instead will stash him at Triple-A Rochester. Don't be surprised if the lefty bat gets a chance in the bigs during the 2017 season. AL-only fantasy players can keep him on their watchlists.

Twins' Ben Paulsen: Won't make 25-man roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulsen (calf) struck out as a pinch hitter in Sunday's loss to Boston. He's been told he won't make the final 25-man roster, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Paulsen missed some time after being kicked in the calf in a spring training game last week, but looks fine for the regular season. Paulsen hit just .217/.258/.304 for the Rockies last season. He spent most of his time at Triple-A Albuquerque where he hit .278 with a .765 OPS. He may spend most of his season at Triple-A again this year and provide depth.

Twins' Ben Paulsen: Dealing with minor calf injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulsen (calf) is reportedly ok after being kicked in the calf during Monday's spring league game, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

Paulsen had to be helped off the field after suffering the lower leg injury, but luckily it doesn't appear to be anything serious. It's still unknown how long he'll be held out for, so consider him day-to-day until the Twins note otherwise.

Twins' Ben Paulsen: Leaves game after being stepped on
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Paulsen was forced to exit Monday's game after his heel was stepped on, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

Paulsen had to be helped off the field after Jonathan Davis stepped on his heel hustling out a ground ball. It's unclear how long the heel issue will keep the 29-year-old sidelined, but he should be considered day-to-day for the time being.
