Player Outlook
Edouard Julien finished seventh in the AL rookie of the year voting as he looks like a potential star for the Twins. Julien offers a mix of exceptional plate discipline and power. He had a .381 OBP and drew walks at a near league-leading 15.7% clip. He also hit 16 home runs with a .195 ISO and was in the 86th percentile for Barrel Rate. His playing time was limited by platoon issues and his defense, however. He hit just .195 with a .447 OPS against left-handed pitching. He also struggled at times at second base (-3 defensive runs saved) and was blocked by Jorge Polanco (when healthy) which led him to be used frequently at DH and even 1B. The Twins should find a spot for him in the everyday lineup against right-handed pitching and should get more exposure to left-handed pitching as he develops.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Officially demoted to Triple-A

    The Twins optioned Julien to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday. Julien put up a 132 OPS+ last season as a rookie and opened the 2024 campaign as the Twins' leadoff man against right-handed pitching. While he started off with an .830 OPS in April this season, he posted a .482 OPS with a 36.5 percent strikeout rate since May 1. Julien could regain a regular role with Minnesota later this season, but he'll head to St. Paul for now as he looks to get back on track. Willi Castro will likely take over as the Twins' primary second baseman, with Kyle Farmer being mixed in against lefties.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Demotion could be coming

    Julien had a meeting with manager Rocco Baldelli and subsequently met with teammates after Sunday's win over the Astros, which could indicate the second baseman is headed to Triple-A St. Paul as Royce Lewis (quadriceps) is set to return from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Julien hit out of the No. 9 hole Sunday and went 0-for-2 with a walk, which dropped his season slash line to .207/.309/.367 through 58 games. The 25-year-old has a 34 percent strikeout rate this year, and the return of Lewis provides an opportunity for Julien to get back on track in a lower-pressure environment. The Twins have yet to make an official announcement regarding Lewis and who he'll replace on the MLB roster.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Resting in series finale

    Julien is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Royals. With Thursday's contest being a day game after a night game, manager Rocco Baldelli will give rest to several key regulars.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Moves down order amid slump

    Julien went 0-for-2 in Sunday's loss to the Rangers. He was moved down to eighth in the lineup against a right-handed starter amid a 1-for-25 slump that has lowered his batting average to .199 and his OPS to .674. Julien also has just one walk over his last eight games as well as his struggles since the end of April have accelerated. He was hitting just .147 with a .418 OPS over his last 24 games before Sunday. Moving him down in the order from his usual leadoff spot against right-handed pitchers is a sign of his recent troubles. His slump has lasted long enough that he may start to lose playing time and it's not out of the question that he could face a trip to the minors to get him back on track .

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: On base three times in loss

    Julien went 2-for-4 with a walk, a run scored and a stolen base in Saturday's 10-8 loss to the Blue Jays. The 25-year-old Canadian put together a solid performance in Toronto as the Twins' leadoff hitter. The multi-hit performance was Julien's first since April 27, snapping a slump that had seen him hit just .097 (3-for-31) over the prior 12 games, while the steal was his fourth of the season, establishing a new career high after he swiped three in 109 games last year as a rookie.

The lefty slugger drove in a run with a third-inning single before drawing a bases-loaded walk in the seventh.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Belts two homers in win

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Belts fifth homer

    Julien went 3-for-4 with a home run, a double, two runs scored and two RBI in Monday's win over the White Sox. Julien doubled in a run during the fourth inning before capping off the 7-0 victory with a solo shot in the seventh. He was stuck in a 3-for-24 skid over his previous seven games since his last long ball April 13. Julien continues to flash his power potential with five home runs and eight extra-base hits through 81 plate appearances. However, his inconsistency has led to a .211/.300/.465 slash line.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Starting again versus lefty

    Julien will start at second base and bat ninth in Monday's game in Baltimore. Julien has now made two straight starts against left-handers and has been in the lineup for all but two games this season. It might not be the case if the Twins weren't missing Royce Lewis (quad) and/or Carlos Correa (intercostal), but for now Julien looks like an everyday player rather than a strong-side platoon option.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Getting start against southpaw

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Sitting versus lefty

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Back in action Monday

    Julien (wrist) will serve as the Twins' designated hitter and leadoff batter in Monday's Grapefruit League game against Atlanta. Julien exited early in his last spring appearance Friday versus the Pirates after being hit by a pitch on the right wrist, but he escaped with nothing more than a bruise. After taking the weekend off to let the pain subside, Julien feels well enough to check back into the lineup, albeit in a non-defensive role. Following a promising rookie campaign, Julien has gotten off to a strong start to the spring with a .421/.476/.789 slash line through eight Grapefruit League games.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Works to improve against lefties

    Julien worked in the offseason to limit his front shoulder from flying open during swings against lefties, the Bobby Nightingale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "I changed a couple of things in my swing to adjust to the slider and be able to hit the fastball against lefties," he said earlier this week. He's 6-for-10 with a walk in four games this spring and 2-for-5 against left-handed pitching. He went 2-for-3 with a home run in Friday's Grapefruit League win over Boston. Julien had an outstanding rookie season with a .381 OBP and drew walks at a near league-leading 15.7 percent clip. However, he hit just .195 with a .447 OPS against left-handed pitching. Julien will become the primary starter at second base after the trade of Jorge Polanco but will likely be platooned with Kyle Farmer. If Julien can show improvement against left-handed pitching, he could take over everyday duties.
