  • Twins' Jake Cave: Taking on everyday role

    Cave will start in left field and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays. Cave will be picking up his sixth consecutive start Sunday, and he looks as though he could continue to hold down a near-everyday role in the corner outfield until one of Trevor Larnach (core) or Kyle Garlick (rib) returns from the injured list. While cracking the lineup in left or right field in each of the previous five contests, Cave went 6-for-19 with a home run, a triple, a double, a walk, two RBI and two runs.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Hits first homer of season

    Cave went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 9-3 loss to the Blue Jays. Cave's ninth-inning blast had no impact on the result, but he's now hit safely in all three of his games since joining the big-league club. The outfielder is 4-for-10 with a homer and a double in those contests after slashing a solid .273/.370/.509 with 14 homers and 10 stolen bases in 84 contests with Triple-A St. Paul to start the year. As long as the Twins' outfield is plagued with injuries, Cave should have a chance to carve out playing time versus right-handed pitchers.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Joins big-league roster

    The Twins recalled Cave from Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Cave has posted solid numbers since failing to make the Opening Day roster, slashing .273/.370/.509 with 14 home runs and 57 RBI for Triple-A St. Paul. He'll provide some much-needed outfield depth with Alex Kirilloff (wrist) on the injured list.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Won't make Opening Day roster

    The Twins reassigned Cave to minor-league camp Sunday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. Cave, who was attending camp as a non-roster invitee, is expected to open the 2022 campaign at Triple-A St. Paul. The 29-year-old outfielder saw action in 76 games for the Twins in 2021, slashing .189/.249/.293 with three home runs and one stolen base across 178 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Outrighted to Triple-A

    Cave was outrighted to Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday. Cave recorded a 106 wRC+ across the first three years of his MLB career but stumbled to a 49 wRC+ last season, the product of a .189/.249/.293 slash line. He could return to his former level as a passable part-time outfielder next season, but he has a modest ceiling to pair with a low floor.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Avoids arbitration with Twins

    Cave agreed to a one-year, $800,000 deal with the Twins on Friday, avoiding arbitration, Darren Wolfson of Channel 5 Saint Paul reports. This was his first year as an arbitration-eligible player, and this is one of the lower dollar figures a player will accept in the arbitration process. Cave, who turns 29 in a couple weeks, hit .202/.263/.332 with seven home runs in 118 games over the last two seasons.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Filling in for resting Rooker

    Cave will start in left field and bat eighth Wednesday against the Tigers. He'll be filling in for Brent Rooker, who takes a seat after starting in five of the past six games. Since blasting a three-run home run in an Aug. 25 game against Boston, Cave has gone 4-for-24 with no extra-base hits while seeing limited opportunities over the past month of action.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Launches three-run homer

    Cave went 1-for-5 with a three-run home run in Wednesday's 9-6 extra-inning win over Boston. The 28-year-old saved his best at-bat for last, launching a towering blast to right-center field to extend Minnesota's lead in the 10th inning. Cave has seen his playing time diminish, and for good reason -- he's gone just 8-for-38 (.211) in August, although two of those hits have left the yard. For the year, the outfielder is slashing just .188/.260/.316 with three homers, eight RBI, 13 runs scored and a stolen base across 147 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Losing work in center field

    Cave will start in center field and bat ninth Tuesday against the Red Sox. Although Cave is back in the lineup for the series opener in Boston, the Twins may have pulled the plug on using him as their primary center fielder. Cave made his previous two starts in right field and left field, with Nick Gordon or Rob Refsnyder getting the nod in center the prior five contests. If Byron Buxton (finger) returns from the injured list later this week, Cave's path to reps in the outfield will become further blocked.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Slaps second home run

    Cave went 1-for-2 with a solo home run in Thursday's 7-5 loss to the Yankees. Cave slammed a solo homer off Jameson Taillon in the sixth inning. It was just his second long ball of the season with his other one coming on April 23. Since coming off the 60-day injured list on July 25, he is batting .222 without any multi-hit games. The 28-year-old is slashing just .183/.263/.300 with five RBI and 12 runs scored in 134 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Not starting Tuesday

    Cave is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against Cleveland. It appeared that Cave was in the process of taking over as the Twins' primary center fielder, but he will now sit in favor of Rob Refsnyder for the third time in five games. Cave is just 2-for-15 across his last six games, and it seems like he's out of an everyday role for the time being.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Playing time increasing

    Cave will start in center field and bat sixth Wednesday against the White Sox. The Twins appear to have at least temporarily turned over center field to Cave, who will pick up his fourth start at the position in five games. The 28-year-old is holding down a .535 OPS and a 34.2 percent strikeout rate for the season, so he may not have a long leash on a regular spot in the lineup versus right-handed pitching.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Riding pine Saturday

    Cave isn't starting Saturday's game against the Cardinals. Cave drew two consecutive starts after he returned from the 60-day IL, but he'll now head to the bench for a fourth straight game. Brent Rooker, Max Kepler and Trevor Larnach will start in the outfield from left to right at Busch Stadium.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Remains on bench

    Cave isn't in the lineup Wednesday against the Tigers. Even with right-hander Wily Peralta starting for Detroit in Wednesday's series finale, Cave will ride the pine for a second straight game. He's gone 2-for-9 with a walk and three strikeouts in three appearances since he was reinstated from the 60-day injured list. Nick Gordon will start in center field and bat seventh.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Sitting against lefty

    Cave is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Tigers. With a southpaw (Tyler Alexander) on the bump for Detroit, the lefty-hitting Cave will cede his spot in center field to platoon mate Gilberto Celestino. Since returning from the 60-day injured list Saturday, Cave has made two starts, going 2-for-8 with a walk.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Making second straight start

    Cave will start in center field and bat eighth Monday against the Tigers. For the second game in a row, Cave will stick in the lineup versus a right-hander (Matt Manning), after he went 1-for-4 in Sunday's 6-2 loss to the Angels. Cave looks like he'll get the chance to fill a strong-side platoon role in center field until the Twins get Byron Buxton (hand) or Rob Refsnyder (hamstring) back from the injured list.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Reinstated from 60-day IL

    Cave (back) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Saturday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports. Cave suffered a stress reaction in his lower back in mid-May and has been on the injured list since then, but he recently began a rehab assignment at Triple-A St. Paul. He went 11-for-30 with a home run, a double, six runs and five RBI across eight rehab games, and he should serve as a depth option in the Twins' outfield.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Moving towards rehab assignment

    Cave (back) could begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul next week, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports. A stress fracture in his back has sidelined Cave since mid-May. He's nearly eligible to return from the 60-day injured list, but he'll likely need a fairly long rehab assignment given the length of his absence.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Starts playing catch

    Cave (back) was on the field playing catch before Thursday's loss to Cleveland, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. "He's not imminently coming back here," manager Rocco Baldelli said. "He's still got a ways to go." Cave is on the 60-day injured list due to a stress reaction in his lower back. It sounds like he's still a month or more away from returning despite this positive step.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Placed on 60-day injured list

    Cave was placed on the 60-day injured list Saturday due to a fracture in his back, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Cave was held out of the lineup and unavailable Friday due to the injury, and he'll now be sidelined at least two months. His absence further thins the Twins outfield, with Alex Kirilloff (wrist) and Byron Buxton (hip) also currently on the injured list.
