  • 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 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.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Returns to minors

    Miranda was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday.

    The 23-year-old was called up by the Twins in early May and struggled in his first taste of big-league action with a .164/.200/.284 slash line in 19 games. Miranda will now head back to St. Paul while top prospect Royce Lewis takes his spot on Minnesota's 26-man roster.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: On bench again Wednesday

    Miranda is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Athletics.

    Miranda is on the bench for the third time in five games and appears to have lost hold of an everyday role following Luis Arraez's recent return from the COVID-19 injured list. The rookie has thus far had a rough introduction to the majors, hitting .096 with a 20.4 percent strikeout rate across 54 plate appearances. If playing time grows more scarce for Miranda, he could be headed back to Triple-A St. Paul in short order.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Out of Sunday's lineup

    Miranda is not in Sunday's lineup against the Guardians.

    He started six of the last seven games but will head to the bench with Luis Arraez starting at first base and Gary Sanchez starting at designated hitter. Miranda is hitting .114 in 11 games since getting the call, and it's possible he will be the odd man out when Carlos Correa (finger) comes off the injured list.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Starting Saturday

    Miranda is starting Saturday's game against Cleveland.

    The 23-year-old got a day off in Friday's series opener against the Guardians after starting in 10 consecutive games, but he'll return to the lineup at first base and bat sixth Saturday. Since Luis Arraez has spent plenty of time as the designated hitter recently, Miranda is in line to serve as Minnesota's primary first baseman after Alex Kirilloff was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday. Miranda is hitting .128 with a homer, two doubles, three RBI and two runs to begin his major-league career.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Swats first career homer

    Miranda went 1-for-3 with a walk and a solo home run in Friday's 2-1 win over the A's.

    In his fifth career MLB game, Miranda got the Twins on the board by taking Zach Logue deep in the second inning for his first career homer. The 23-year-old also flashed his defensive chops -- with the bases loaded and one out in the ninth inning, Miranda snagged a slow chopper off the bat of Seth Brown and fired home just in time to get the force out and preserve Minnesota's lead. A third baseman by trade, Miranda has started four games at first base with Miguel Sano (knee) on the shelf, and it looks like he could remain there for a while. Just like this Twins team, he's young, scrappy and hungry, and Miranda's not throwing away his shot at proving he belongs in the majors.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Gets fourth consecutive start

    Miranda will start at first base and bat eighth Thursday against the Orioles, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Miranda will pick up his fourth straight start since his promotion from Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, including his third straight at first base. Though he'll be sitting Thursday against Orioles right-hander Spenser Watkins, the lefty-hitting Luis Arraez is still expected to see steady work at first base against right-handed pitching, but the Twins could still find at-bats for Miranda by moving him to third base or deploying him as a designated hitter. Miranda will have to pick up the pace at the plate to ensure he sticks as a regular in the lineup, however, as he's off to a 1-for-13 start to his big-league career.
