  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: Continues recent turnaround

    Duffey allowed no runs with no hits or walks while striking out four over 1.2 innings Thursday against the Guardians, and the addition of a changeup to his arsenal has contributed to his recent improvement, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Duffey has thrown nine scoreless innings over his last six appearances with a 8:2 K:BB. It's a stark turnaround after he began the season with a 6.38 ERA and 24:8 K:BB in his first 24 innings, a rough stretch that saw him relegated to low-leverage opportunities. Duffey has switched his pitch mix, relying less on a high fastball and using the changeup more frequently. He could return to a key setup role if he continues performing well.

  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: Struggles again Tuesday

    Duffey allowed three runs on two hits and one walk while striking out two over one inning Tuesday against the Yankees.

    It was Duffey's second poor outing in a row after he allowed three runs and a home run in two-thirds of an inning at Toronto on Sunday. Duffey has given up nine runs in his last 4.2 innings with 10 hits allowed and four walks. He may need to be used in some lower-leverage spots until he gets out of his recent slump.

  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: Notches first save

    Duffey pitched a perfect inning against the Athletics on Monday, striking out one batter and earning a save.

    Emilio Pagan has been the primary closer for Minnesota of late, but he pitched in three straight games over the weekend and was held out Monday. The Twins thus turned to Duffey with a two-run ninth-inning lead, and the right-hander came through with his first save of the season. Duffey hasn't allowed a run in his past six outings and is an important part of Minnesota's bullpen, but he doesn't figure to get many save chances going forward with Jhoan Duran joining Pagan in collecting a majority of the team's ninth-inning opportunities.

  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: Picks up win in relief

    Duffey (1-2) earned the victory, striking out two in one perfect inning in a 2-1 win Friday over the White Sox.

    Duffey entered the game in the top of the eighth inning with the Twins losing 1-0 and had his best outing of the season. Facing the top of the Chicago lineup, he struck out the first two batters before getting Jose Abreu to ground out. Minnesota scored twice in the bottom half of the inning to put Duffey in line for the win. The 31-year-old got off to a rocky start this season, blowing two saves in his first four appearances, but was called upon late in a close game and was rewarded with the victory when he got the job done.

  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: Allows two home runs in loss

    Duffey (0-2) took the loss after allowing two runs on three hits with two strikeouts in one inning in a 4-3 loss Tuesday in Kansas City.

    Duffey gave up solo homers to Salvador Perez and Hunter Dozier in the sixth inning. With the Twins leading 3-2 when Duffey entered, it was technically a blown save, his second of the season. The 31-year-old has pitched in the sixth or seventh innings in each appearance since his blown save April 9. Minnesota has yet to have any pitcher record a save in 2022 and it is unclear who will be given those opportunities when they arise.

  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: Blows save, takes loss

    Duffey (0-1) gave up two runs on three hits while striking out one over one inning in a 4-3 loss Saturday against the Mariners.

    Duffey blew the save when Adam Frazier doubled home two runs in the ninth. The Twins did not name a closer to start the season and Duffey was the first reliever given the opportunity to record a save. Despite his poor showing in his 2022 debut, the 31-year-old should continue to receive late-game opportunities as he has been one of the best bullpen arms for Minnesota over the past three years.

  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: Inks one-year deal

    Duffey agreed to a one-year, $3.8 million contract with the Twins on Tuesday to avoid arbitration, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Duffey recorded a 3.18 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 61:28 K:BB over 62.1 innings while recording three saves and 22 holds last season. He should enter spring training as a high-leverage bullpen option for Minnesota next year.

  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: Picks up third save

    Duffey worked a perfect inning while striking out two en route to his third save of the season in Wednesday's 3-0 win over Cleveland.

    With Alex Colome having picked up saves on three consecutive nights (and needing 49 pitches to do so), the Twins figured to head in a different direction at closer if the need arose Wednesday. As luck would have it, it did, and Duffey answered the call. He'll likely return to his setup role once the Twins feel that Colome is ready to go again.

  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: Notches second save

    Duffey allowed an unearned run on two hits and struck out one in one inning to earn the save in Friday's 7-5 extra-inning win over Texas.

    With Taylor Rogers and Hansel Robles both logging perfect innings earlier in the contest, Duffey was called on to lock down a save in the bottom of the 10th. He allowed an RBI single to Joey Gallo, but the right-hander was otherwise effective in his second save of the year. He's pitched to a 4.15 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 24:13 K:BB in 26 innings this season. Duffey has also picked up eight holds in 28 outings, often serving as a setup option.

  • Twins' Tyler Duffey: Picks up save Sunday

    Duffey recorded a save Sunday against Cleveland after tossing a scoreless inning, walking one and fanning two.

    Duffey pitched the 10th inning and looked in command of the situation -- despite walking Jake Bauers with one out, he still tossed nine of his 15 pitches for strikes en route to picking up his first save of the campaign. He's gone 1-for-2 in save opportunities this season.
