  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: RBI in loss

    Farmer went 1-for-3 with an RBI in the 4-2 loss to the Orioles on Wednesday.

    Farmer has played in six games since Carlos Correa injured his oblique bouncing between third and shortstop over the past week. While the Twins have said the All-Star's injury is relatively minor, his return status remains unclear, which should open up opportunities for Farmer to get more at-bats. A lifetime .252 hitter, there's bound to be a bit of positive regression to the mean with the veteran averaging .097 across 38 at-bats this season.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: On bench Saturday

    Farmer is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Royals.

    Farmer got the start at second base for the season opener Thursday and finished 0-for-3 with one walk and two strikeouts. With the Royals starting right-hander Seth Lugo on Saturday, Edouard Julien will draw the start at second base. However, Farmer may see most of his action at third base with Royce Lewis out a month or more with a quad injury. Willi Castro and Farmer are likely to platoon at third base in his absence.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Getting start against southpaw

    Farmer is starting at second base and batting seventh for the Twins in Thursday's opener versus the Royals.

    Farmer gets the nod at the keystone with the Royals starting southpaw Cole Ragans. The 33-year-old utility player had a .781 OPS against left-handed pitching last season for Minnesota.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Set to platoon at 2B

    Farmer looks set to platoon with Edouard Julien at second base and serve as the primary backup at shortstop, reports. He's gone 1-for-9 in three games this spring.

    Julien could get more playing time if he improves against left-handed pitching, but Farmer should get steady starts at second base against lefties to begin the season. Farmer is a plus glove at second base, but his lack of premium power and lower contact rate (74.4%) exposes his deficiences with everyday duty.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Gets $6.3 million

    Farmer agreed to a one-year, $6.3 million contract with the Twins on Thursday that includes a $6.25 million mutual option for 2025, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    There's a $250K buyout if the club declines the 2025 option. Farmer is more valuable in real life than in fantasy, as he doesn't have big tools, but he can capably play any position on the infield. He slashed .256/.317/.408 with 11 home runs in 369 plate appearances last season while playing 20-plus games at second base, third base and shortstop.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Swats two-run homer

    Farmer went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and an additional run against the White Sox in a 10-2 win Thursday.

    Farmer's blast in the seventh inning gave the Twins a 6-0 lead and marked the end of Chicago starter Jose Urena's outing. It was the second straight game with a long ball for Farmer, marking the second time he has gone deep in back-to-back contests this season. Farmer is slashing .254/.311/.424 with 11 home runs, 36 RBI, 42 runs and one stolen base across 106 contests on the campaign.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Blasts three-run homer

    Farmer went 1-for-2 with a three-run home run in Monday's 20-6 win over the Guardians.

    Farmer slugged one of the Twins' three home runs against position player David Fry, who covered the final four innings of the contest to save the Guardians bullpen in a game Cleveland was already trailing by 10 runs when he took over in the top of the sixth. The 33-year-old utility player is now up to nine home runs on the season, with three coming in his last seven games.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Filling in for resting Julien

    Farmer will start at third base and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Rangers.

    Farmer will pick up a start against Texas lefty Jordan Montgomery while the lefty-hitting Edouard Julien exits the lineup. Though he's posted an .840 OPS since the All-Star break, Farmer's opportunities are likely to be limited mostly to facing left-handed pitching while the Minnesota infield is at close to full strength.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Belts homer in win

    Farmer went 1-for-3 with a solo home run and two walks in Tuesday's 10-3 win over the Mariners.

    After a 23-game span with no homers, Farmer's gone deep in two of his last three games. The infielder is up to six long balls, 21 RBI, 29 runs scored and one stolen base while slashing .246/.313/.393 over 66 contests this season. Farmer should remain a fixture in the lineup versus left-handed pitchers, but he may lose more time against righties once Jorge Polanco (hamstring) returns from the injured list.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Breaks homer drought

    Farmer went 3-for-5 with a solo home run, a double and two additional RBI in Saturday's win over the Athletics.

    After going without a home run for 23 games, Farmer took Freddy Tarnok yard in the seventh inning for his fifth long ball of the campaign. The multi-hit effort broke Farmer out of a slump during which he batted 5-for-34 (.147) over 14 games.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Pops fourth homer

    Farmer went 2-for-3 with a double and a solo home run in Tuesday's 7-5 win over the Brewers.

    Getting the start at second base and batting seventh, Farmer chased Corbin Burnes from the game by leading off the seventh inning with his fourth homer of the season. The 32-year-old infielder has started only two of the last seven games, and with Edouard Julien getting a look at the keystone and Royce Lewis handling the hot corner, playing time will likely be scarce for Farmer despite his solid .270/.328/.393 slash line on the season.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Moves back to bench Monday

    Farmer is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Astros.

    With Royce Lewis (knee) starting at third base in his return from the 60-day injured list and with Carlos Correa having recently overcome a foot issue, Farmer no longer appears to have a clear path to steady playing time on the left side of the infield. He could challenge Edouard Julien for work at the keystone, but neither player will be anything more than a stopgap solution at the position with Jorge Polanco (hamstring) seemingly close to a return from the 10-day IL. After starting in each of the last nine games, Farmer looks set to see a big downturn in opportunities while he transitions into more of a utility role.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Racks up three hits

    Farmer went 3-for-5 with an RBI and two runs scored in Saturday's 6-2 win over the Angels.

    Farmer has logged multiple hits in four of his last six contests, and he's driven in at least one run in five of those games. The 32-year-old continues to hit well, with his latest strong game lifting his season slash line to .319/.377/.478 with three home runs, 14 RBI, 15 runs scored and two doubles through 77 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Sitting Wednesday

    Farmer is not in the starting lineup Wednesday versus the Dodgers.

    Farmer will take a seat after he went 3-for-9 with a solo homer, four RBI, two walks and two strikeouts over the first two games of the series. The 32-year-old's hit streak has now reached seven games, and he's batting .370 with two home runs, seven RBI, six run scored and three walks over that stretch. Willi Castro will draw the start at third base and bat eighth in the series finale with Los Angeles on Wednesday.
