  • Twins' Tzu-Wei Lin: Clears waivers

    Lin was outrighted to Triple-A St. Paul after clearing waivers over the weekend, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

  • Twins' Tzu-Wei Lin: Designated for assignment

    Lin was designated for assignment by the Twins on Friday, s Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Lin was with the team briefly to cover for other players who had been placed on the COVID-19 injured list. He got into just one game during his time with the team and didn't receive a single plate appearance.

  • Twins' Tzu-Wei Lin: Contract selected by Twins

    Lin's contract was selected by the Twins on Friday.

    Lin spent parts of four seasons as an infrequently used utility player for the Red Sox before joining the Twins on a minor-league deal in December. His .223/.298/.316 career slash line through 218 plate appearances at the highest level suggests he's best used in a bench role.

  • Twins' Tzu-Wei Lin: Sent to minor-league camp

    Lin was reassigned to minor-league camp Saturday.

    Lin was a non-roster invitee to camp and slashed .333/.500/.533 with three doubles, one RBI and two stolen bases in 15 spring at-bats. He'll now join the team's minor-league camp ahead of the regular season and should begin the year at Triple-A St. Paul.

  • Twins' Tzu-Wei Lin: Inks minor-league deal

    Lin signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Saturday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Lin spent the entire 2020 season on Boston's major-league roster, but he only logged 57 plate appearances over 26 games. He was unable to generate much production, slashing .154/.182/.173 with three RBI and 17 strikeouts. While it's unclear whether his deal with Minnesota includes an invitation to major-league spring training, it wouldn't be surprising to see him serve as a non-roster invitee.

  • Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Outrighted to minors

    Lin was outrighted to Triple-A Pawtucket on Monday, Christopher Smith of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Lin received 57 plate appearances for the struggling Red Sox this season and did very little with them, hitting .154/.182/.173. That dragged his career slash line down to .223/.298/.316. He's unlikely to play a major role for the Red Sox next season.

  • Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Seeing few at-bats

    Lin remains out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Marlins, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    Lin has been up with the Red Sox since Opening Day, but he's picked up only 10 starts through Boston's first 50 games. Even with the 18-31 Red Sox well removed from playoff contention, don't expect Lin to see his playing-time situation improved over the final week and a half of the regular season.

  • Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Starts in center

    Lin started in center field and went 0-for-4 in Tuesday's 13-6 loss to the Phillies.

    Jackie Bradley was scratched due to a sore right wrist, so Lin was deployed in center field for the first time in 2020. The utility infielder has played just eight career games in center, but the Red Sox didn't have many options as Andrew Benintendi (ribs) is on the injured list. Boston manager Ron Roenicke told Ian Browne of MLB.com that Bradley is feeling better, and the manager is hopeful he can return Wednesday against Philadelphia right-hander Jake Arrieta.

  • Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Starts at second base

    Lin started at second base and went 1-for-4 in Saturday's 5-2 loss to the Yankees.

    Lin filled in for Jose Peraza, who was given the day off after starting the first eight games. This was Lin's second start of the season; he filled in for an injured Xander Bogaerts at shortstop last Wednesday. He'll continue in a utility infielder role going forward but may not survive when rosters are trimmed. The Red Sox, who are 3-6 and missing their top two starters for the season, may decide to use the abbreviated campaign to take a deeper look at their roster. That could lead the organization to look toward the future and carry Rule 5 pick and utility infielder Jonathan Arauz instead of Lin.

  • Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Plays first base Sunday

    Lin played first base in Sunday's intrasquad game, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    Lin handled himself well at first, making a couple of nice picks. The versatile Lin has lined up at second base, shortstop, third base and center field in his three seasons with the Red Sox, so they are confident in his ability to add a new position. He could be used as Brock Holt's replacement this season in the versatility role.

  • Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Back in action Wednesday

    Lin (hamstring) is starting at second base and batting eighth in Wednesday's Grapefruit League game versus the Rays.

    The 26-year-old was shut down last week after exiting a game with left hamstring tightness, but his relatively quick return to game action indicates the injury was a minor concern. Lin seems likely to begin the 2020 season in the minors, but he figures to fill a utility role if and when he's called up.

  • Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Likely to miss a few days

    Lin (hamstring) is expected to be shut down from baseball activities for the next two or three days, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

    The Red Sox don't believe the left hamstring tightness that forced Lin out of Tuesday's game against the Yankees is a major concern, but he'll require some maintenance time before resuming workouts. Even though he injury doesn't look like it'll jeopardize Lin's availability for Opening Day, he still probably finds himself on the outside looking in for one of the Red Sox's reserve infield jobs.

  • Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Leaves with hamstring tightness

    Lin left Tuesday's game against the Yankees with left hamstring tightness, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

    The severity of the injury is not yet clear. Lin is on Boston's 40-man roster but wasn't considered a favorite to win a roster spot even when healthy.

  • Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Gets start in split-squad game

    Lin (concussion) is in the lineup for Monday's split-squad game against the Rays, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

    Lin ended last season dealing with a concussion, but he has put the issue behind him and will make his second appearance of the spring Monday. He will man third base and hit second in Boston's batting order.

  • Red Sox's Tzu-Wei Lin: Dealing with concussion

    Lin has been diagnosed with a concussion, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

    Lin, who last played with Pawtucket on Aug. 26, was scheduled to be evaluated by the medical staff Saturday. The 25-year-old Lin is on the 40-man roster and will presumably join the Red Sox later this month if he's able to pass concussion protocol.
