Top Jose Miranda News

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Two more hits in loss

    Miranda went 2-for-5 with one RBI in Sunday's loss against the Blue Jays.

    The 24-year-old continues to rake, with Sunday marking his second straight two-hit effort. Now hitting .352 since the beginning of July, Miranda is living up to his prospect pedigree. The Twins have moved him more regularly into the cleanup spot in the order, and that has allowed him to rank fourth in the majors in RBI since the beginning of July.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Goes yard in win

    Miranda went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Saturday's 7-3 win over the Blue Jays.

    In his last 12 games, Miranda has gone 17-for-44 (.386) with five extra-base hits and 14 RBI. The 24-year-old is seeing most of his time at the corner infield spots lately as he continues to force his way into the lineup. The recent surge has him up to a .277/.325/.477 slash line with 11 homers, 46 RBI, 28 runs scored, 14 doubles and a stolen base through 70 contests.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Continues raking Monday

    Miranda went 2-for-4 with a walk, three RBI and a run in Monday's 5-3 extra-inning win over the Tigers.

    Miranda came up clutch again late in Monday's contest, plating two runs on an eighth-inning base hit to give him 42 RBI through 232 plate appearances on the season. Dating back to May 20, Miranda has been one of the top hitters in baseball, as he's produced a .339/.381/.570 slash line while striking out at an 18.8 percent clip over that 51-game stretch.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Another three-hit game

    Miranda went 3-for-4 with a double, two RBI and a run scored in Tuesday's 7-6 loss to the Brewers.

    For the second day in a row, Miranda produced exactly three hits and two RBI, lifting his season average up to .271 in the process. The rookie has been especially productive following his second minor-league call-up May 30, as he's slashing an incredible .326/.369/.545 in 41 games over the past two months. At this stage, Miranda seems to have established him as a mainstay in the lineup, and Miguel Sano's recent return from the injured list doesn't look as though it'll change that.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Drives in pair in win

    Miranda went 3-for-4 with two RBI, two runs scored and a hit-by-pitch in a 9-1 win Sunday in Detroit.

    Miranda drove in a run after being beaned in the first, singled and scored in both the seventh and eighth innings and drove in a run with a single in the ninth. It was the rookie's third three-hit game of the season. After struggling in his first month in the big leagues, the 24-year-old has produced a .322/.370/.534 line with six homers in 127 plate appearances dating back to June 3. All three of his hits came against right-handed pitchers, albeit the last one coming off a position player, raising his average to .252 against righties.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Getting steady playing time

    Miranda will start at third base and bat seventh in Sunday's game against the White Sox, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Miranda will crack the lineup for the fourth time in five games, this time filling in for a resting Gio Urshela at the hot corner. The designated-hitter spot may represent Miranda's clearest path to a full-time gig at the moment, as Gary Sanchez is expected to move off the non-defensive role to take over as the Twins' No. 1 catcher with Ryan Jeffers (thumb) having been placed on the injured list earlier this weekend. The Twins should get Miguel Sano (knee) back from the 60-day IL following the All-Star break, however, with he and Miranda likely to vie for one spot in the team's everyday lineup.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Slugs walk-off homer

    Miranda went 3-for-5 with a three-run home run Wednesday against the Brewers.

    Miranda was the hero Wednesday as he slugged a walk-off home run in the ninth inning -- his eighth long ball of the season. He's started 11 of the Twins' last 14 games -- primarily at first base -- and after the performance, he's hitting .348 with four home runs, 16 RBI and five runs scored in that span. Though Miranda isn't locked into a single position, he has certainly helped his cause to remain a regular in the lineup with his recent performance. Miranda owns a .260/.299/.463 line across 187 plate appearances overall this season.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Heads to bench Tuesday

    Miranda is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Miranda is without a clear path to everyday playing time, but the Twins should continue to carve out a part-time role for the rookie while he's swinging a hot bat. Though he'll be on the bench Tuesday, Miranda had started in six of the Twins' past seven games while going 6-for-22 with two home runs, a double, two walks, seven RBI and three runs.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Knocks in three in loss

    Miranda went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Saturday's 9-7 loss to the Rangers.

    Miranda launched a fourth-inning blast that scored Carlos Correa and Jorge Polanco. It was Miranda's seventh home run of the year and his second in his last four games. The infielder has four total hits and only one strikeout during that span. The outing helped bring his season batting average up to .243.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Poaching starts from Urshela

    Miranda will start at third base and bat seventh in Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

    Miranda will pick up his third start in a row and has now replaced Gio Urshela at third base on two of those occasions. Now that the Twins have nearly all of their key everyday players back from the injured list, the hot corner looks as though it could represent Miranda's most realistic path to consistent playing time moving forward. Urshela still remains atop the depth chart, but Miranda has outperformed him since the rookie was called up from Triple-A St. Paul on May 30. In the month-plus since that time, Miranda has produced an .824 OPS, a mark 89 points higher than Urshela's.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Drives in three

    Miranda went 1-for-4 with a double and three RBI on Thursday against the Guardians.

    Miranda accounted for all of the Twins' offensive production with a bases-loaded double in the third inning. He's had an inconsistent role in the lineup since Alex Kirilloff returned, though Miranda has started three consecutive games during which he's tallied four hits with four RBI and a run scored. Overall, Miranda is hitting .240/.275/.418 across 153 plate appearances on the season.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Two extra-base hits in twin bill

    Miranda went 3-for-7 with a solo home run and a double while starting both ends of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Guardians.

    Miranda started at third base for a resting Gio Urshela in the early game, then stepped in for the lefty-hitting Alex Kirilloff in the nightcap while the Twins brought southpaw Konnor Pilkington to the hill. Prior to Tuesday, Miranda hadn't started in any of the Twins' previous three contests, and the rookie may have to settle for a short-side platoon role after Jorge Polanco (back) returned from the injured list for the second game of the twin bill to create further crowding in the Minnesota infield.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: May lose work to Kirilloff

    Miranda is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Guardians.

    Miranda has posted an .884 OPS in June and seems to be hitting his stride after a rough start to his big-league career, but he may have to settle for a part-time role following the recent call-up of Alex Kirilloff from Triple-A St. Paul. The rookie will take a seat against a right-handed starting pitcher (Aaron Civale) for the second time in three games while Kirilloff starts at first base and Gary Sanchez serves as the Twins' designated hitter.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Gets fifth straight start

    Miranda will start at first base and bat sixth in Wednesday's game against the Mariners.

    Miranda will draw his fifth start in a row, despite seeing his five-game hitting streak come to an end in Tuesday's 5-0 loss with an 0-for-3, two-strikeout performance. The rookie has indirectly benefited from the Twins missing some lineup regulars in the past couple of weeks, but as long as Jorge Polanco's sore back doesn't force him to the 10-day injured list, Miranda could be moving to a part-time role soon.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Three hits, three RBI in win

    Miranda went 3-for-4 with a double, three RBI and a run in Wednesday's victory over the Yankees.

    Miranda ripped an RBI single off Nestor Cortes in the bottom of the fourth frame before later adding a double, a run and a two-RBI single. It was the third time in his last four starts where he's recorded multiple hits, going 8-for-16 with two homers, two doubles, seven RBI and four runs in those contests. With Carlos Correa now back in the fold following a stint on the COVID list, it may be difficult for Miranda to start on a consistent basis, but his recent stretch has certainly helped his chances to crack the lineup.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Retreats to bench

    Miranda is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Marly Rivera of ESPN.com reports.

    Miranda has produced three home runs while batting .318 over his last six starts, but his playing time could grow more scarce with Max Kepler recently returning from the restricted list and with Carlos Correa (illness) on track to come off the COVID-19-related injured list Wednesday. The rookie will be taking a seat Tuesday for only the third time in the Twins' last nine contests.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Slugs two homers in win

    Miranda went 2-for-4 with two homers and three RBI in Friday's 9-3 win over the Blue Jays.

    The rookie launched a solo shot off Yusei Kikuchi in the second inning and a two-run blast off Trevor Richards in the sixth as part of a five-homer night for the Twins' offense. Miranda has four hits in 14 at-bats since returning to the majors May 30, with three of them leaving the yard, but his five strikeouts over that stretch remain the biggest obstacle between the 23-year-old and a regular role in the big leagues.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Back in big leagues

    Miranda was recalled by the Twins on Monday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Miranda was optioned Sunday that Royce Lewis could take his place on the roster, but he'll return one day later as Lewis hits the injured list with a bone bruise in his right knee. Miranda hit a very disappointing .164/.200/.284 in 19 games prior to his demotion, but that brief stretch isn't enough to conclude that he doesn't have what it takes to succeed at the highest level.
