Miranda went 3-for-5 with a homer and two RBI against Triple-A Omaha on Sunday. He's now hitting a spectacular .337/.398/.653 across 24 games with the Triple-A club -- even better numbers than what he put up in Double-A. Miranda has racked up 21 homers, 60 RBI and 60 runs in 71 games across the two levels he's seen this year, and he's managed to do so while striking out just 43 times. If not for the presence (and contract) of Josh Donaldson, Miranda might be in the majors already. As it stands, he appears poised to keep terrorizing Triple-A pitching until the Twins are ready to call him up.
Miranda went 5-for-6 with three home runs, a double, four runs and six RBI in Triple-A St. Paul's 15-4 win over St. Paul on Tuesday. After getting called up from Double-A Wichita on Monday, Miranda made his Triple-A debut Tuesday, and it couldn't have gone any better. A relatively unheralded prospect heading into 2021, Miranda has put himself in the conversation for a second-half call-up after dazzling at Double-A and in his first game at Triple-A. Over 224 plate appearances between the two affiliates, Miranda has supplied a .360/.420/.645 slash line while striking out only 11.2 percent of the time.
The Twins promoted Miranda from Double-A Wichita to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports. After a down season between two affiliates in 2019, Miranda has returned from minor-league baseball's one-year layoff with a vengeance. The 22-year-old earned his first call-up to Triple-A after decimating Double-A pitching to the tune of a .345/.408/.588 slash line with 13 home runs and a minuscule 11.5 percent strikeout rate across 218 plate appearances. In addition to his exploits at the plate, Miranda has picked up double-digit starts at first base, second base and third base, signaling that the Twins could be preparing him for a utility role if and when he arrives in the majors.
