  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Returns from injured list

    The Twins reinstated Paddack (elbow) from the 60-day injured list Sunday.

    Paddack has been on the shelf all season while recovering from the Tommy John procedure -- the second of his career -- he underwent in May 2022. He made three rehab starts in the minors, giving up four runs over 9.2 innings. Paddack figures to initially serve in a multi-inning relief role during Minnesota's postseason run, and he will likely rejoin the rotation in 2024. The Twins optioned Josh Winder to Triple-A St. Paul and transferred Jovani Moran (forearm) to the 60-day injured list as corresponding moves.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Strikes out six in rehab outing

    Paddack (elbow) struck out six over four innings and gave up two earned runs on four hits and no walks in a rehab start Tuesday with Double-A Wichita.

    In his second rehab appearance as he gears up for a return from Tommy John surgery, Paddack tossed 58 pitches and relayed after the game that he feels "outstanding," per MLB.com. Paddack was scheduled to throw a bullpen session later this week before heading to Triple-A St. Paul, where he's expected to make his next rehab appearance in a relief role. If all goes well during the upcoming appearance, Paddack could be activated from the 60-day injured list as soon as Sept. 22 to fill a multi-inning role out of the Minnesota bullpen.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Sits at 95 mph in first rehab start

    Paddack (elbow) allowed two runs on two hits and two walks and struck out four across 2.2 innings Wednesday in his first rehab appearance with Single-A Fort Myers.

    According to Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Paddack's fastball sat around 95 miles per hour, and he induced five whiffs on six swings while throwing his changeup. Paddack is nearly 16 months removed from Tommy John surgery and presumably will require at least a couple more rehab appearances before being activated from the 60-day injured list. The Twins could use him as a multi-inning reliever late in the season.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Rehab assignment coming

    Paddack (elbow) said Tuesday that he'll begin a rehab assignment with Single-A Fort Myers on Sept. 6, John Shipley of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Paddack has spent all season on the 60-day injured list while working his way back from the Tommy John surgery he underwent in May 2022. He's been facing live hitters since the start of August and is set to throw a three-inning sim game at the team's complex in Florida this week. There's been no indication on how long Paddack's assignment could last, but there's a chance the 27-year-old righty is able to rejoin the Minnesota bullpen in a multi-inning relief role in time for the team's playoff push.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Building up to three innings

    Paddack (elbow) is expected to throw a three-inning, 50-pitch simulated game this week at the Twins' spring training complex in Florida, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    After undergoing the second Tommy John surgery of his career in May 2022, Paddack is in the process of building his arm back up. He'll add an inning to his workload this week after he threw two innings of live batting practice last week. Paddack, Twins trainer Nick Paparesta and the right-hander's surgeon, Dr. Keith Meister, are scheduled to discuss the next steps after the three-inning sim game. If both Meister and Paparesta are satisfied with how Paddack has come along in his recovery from surgery, the 27-year-old could be cleared for what would likely be an extended minor-league rehab assignment in September.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Faces live hitters

    Paddack (elbow) is facing live hitters at the team's Fort Myers, Fla. complex this week, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    He still doesn't have clearance to appear in a game, however. The Twins haven't ruled him out for returning this season, but the odds seem long given that he'll need several weeks of a rehab assignment. At least if he can appear in some minor-league or instructional league games, he'll get a head start on returning next season. The right-hander underwent the second Tommy John surgery of his career in May 2022.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Gearing up to face live hitters

    Paddack (elbow) is on track to begin facing live hitters in mid-August, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Paddack is about 14 months removed from his second career Tommy John surgery and has been throwing bullpen sessions without issue since the beginning of June. The 27-year-old right-hander could potentially be an option for the Twins' pitching staff sometime in September if all continues to go smoothly with his throwing program.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Cleared for mound work

    Paddack (elbow) threw a bullpen session Tuesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Paddack has been cleared for mound work almost 11 months after undergoing Tommy John surgery. He told reporters after Tuesday's side session that he wants to be pitching in either a bullpen or rotation role for the Twins by early-to-mid September.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Placed on 60-day IL

    Paddack was placed on the 60-day injured list by the Twins on Thursday as he continues his recovery from Tommy John surgery, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    The team needed to free up a spot on the 40-man roster for the Donovan Solano signing. Paddack is about nine months removed from what was his second Tommy John surgery and just recently began a throwing program. He's hoping to make it back sometime late this season.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Eyeing late-season return

    Paddack (elbow) said Wednesday that he began a throwing program last week and has progressed to throwing off flat ground from 60 feet, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Paddack may be able to get back on the mound and/or face hitters by the end of spring training, but he acknowledged that he likely won't be ready to make his 2023 debut until August or September while he recovers from the Tommy John surgery he underwent last May. Because it was the second Tommy John surgery of his career, Paddack may face an uphill battle to return anywhere close to the level of success he enjoyed as a rookie with the Padres in 2019. Given that they signed Paddack to a three-year, $12.53 million contract extension in January, the Twins must at least be encouraged by how he's responded thus far from surgery.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Signs three-year extension

    Paddack (elbow) signed a three-year extension with the Twins on Wednesday.

    Paddack made five starts with the Twins last season and forged a 4.03 ERA before undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in May. The right-handed hurler is expected to miss the majority -- if not all -- of the 2023 season while recovering from the operation, but he should have a good chance of carving out a role in Minnesota's rotation beginning in 2024.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Inks one-year deal

    Paddack (elbow) and the Twins agreed on a one-year, $2.4 million contract Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The right-hander underwent the second Tommy John surgery of his career in May and isn't expected to be available for at least the first half of the 2023 campaign. Prior to injuring his elbow, Paddack produced a 4.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 20 punchouts over 22.1 innings in five starts with Minnesota.
