  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Starts playing catch

    Ober (groin) has started playing catch and said he's hopeful to return to the mound and throw a bullpen by the end of this week, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Ober has an aponeurotic plate injury, which he described as a tendon pulling on his pelvic bone, the Star Tribune adds. Ober could make the first of likely several rehab starts next week.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Heading back to injured list

    Ober will be placed on the 15-day injured list with a right groin injury Monday, Megan Ryan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Ober was sidelined with a right groin strain earlier in the season, and while the extent of his current injury isn't yet clear, he'll at least be forced to miss a few turns through the rotation. The right-hander gave up eight runs in nine innings over his last two starts, and it's possible that his injury contributed to his struggles. Cole Sands is a strong candidate to take Ober's place in the starting rotation.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Gives up fives runs in six innings

    Ober (1-2) took the loss after allowing five runs on nine hits across six innings during Wednesday's 5-0 loss to the Tigers. He recorded four strikeouts and zero walks.

    Ober allowed a leadoff double in the first inning to Willi Castro, who came around to score on an RBI single from Jonathan Schoop two batters later. However, the right-hander was able to settle down and throw three scoreless innings before finding himself in trouble again in the fifth. Ober allowed five of the first six to reach in that frame, including three doubles, which led to four more earned runs. After seven starts this season, Ober's ERA sits at 4.01 ERA, but he sports a 29:7 K:BB across 33.2 innings. His next start is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday's matchup with the Yankees.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Early exit in no-decision

    Ober didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 10-7 win over the Royals, giving up three runs on five hits and a walk over three innings. He struck out five.

    The Twins staked Ober to a 4-0 lead in the first inning, but after he coughed up three runs of his own in the third, he got the hook after 61 pitches (38 strikes). Ober hadn't allowed more than one earned run in a start since his first outing of the season, leaving him with a 3.25 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 25:7 K:BB through 27.2 innings.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Yields one run in return

    Ober allowed one run on three hits and a walk over five innings in Sunday's win over the Royals. He struck out four and did not factor in the decision.

    Ober made his first start since April 28 after a stint on the injured list, and he picked up right where he left off before the injury. Outside of the third inning when Kansas City plated a run, he allowed just one baserunner in the 78-pitch outing. Since yielding four runs in his first start of 2022, the 26-year-old has given up five runs (three earned) over his last 19.2 frames. Ober will carry a 2.55 ERA into his projected rematch against the Royals at home next week.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Reinstated from 10-day injured list

    Ober (groin) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Ober will start Sunday's game against the Royals, and he'll be activated by Minnesota a day before the outing. The right-hander has been sidelined since late April due to a right groin strain but has been pitching off a mound for several weeks. He recently made a rehab start at Triple-A St. Paul and allowed five runs (four earned) on four hits and no walks while striking out seven in five innings. Josh Winder (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day injured list as part of a series of roster moves.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Slated to start Sunday

    Ober (groin) is expected to start Sunday's game against the Royals, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Manager Rocco Baldelli said Tuesday that Ober would return during the Twins' weekend series against the Royals, and the right-hander will ultimately take the mound in Sunday's series finale. Prior to Ober's three-week absence, he posted a 2.75 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 19.2 innings over four starts to begin the year.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Set to return this weekend

    Manager Rocco Baldelli said Tuesday that Ober (groin) will return from the injured list to start during the upcoming three-game series against the Royals, which begins Friday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    The 26-year-old covered five innings during his rehab start with Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday, and it's not a major surprise he'll make his next outing in the majors. Ober may face some minor workload limitations in his first start back from the groin injury which has sidelined him the past few weeks.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Seven strikeouts in rehab start

    Ober (groin) gave up five runs (four earned) over five innings in a rehab start Sunday for Triple-A St. Paul. He had seven strikeouts and no walks but gave up a home run.

    Ober looked sharp enough to return to the major-league rotation, but it's not clear when he'll return. However, manager Rocco Baldelli told the Minneapolis Star Tribune he could join the Twins on the upcoming road trip. He could be activated from the IL and start a game this weekend at Kansas City.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Begins rehab assignment

    Ober (groin) will begin a rehab assignment at Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Ober threw 20 pitches during a bullpen session Wednesday and will now return to game action with the team's Triple-A affiliate. If the right-hander's Triple-A start goes well Saturday, he'll likely be in the mix to rejoin the Twins' rotation late next week or sometime next weekend.

    Ober (groin) threw a 20-pitch bullpen session Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    The 26-year-old completed an 18-pitch session Saturday and returned to the mound Wednesday. Ober will likely need to build up his pitch count and face live batters before potentially embarking on a minor-league rehab assignment.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Throws bullpen session

    Ober (groin) threw an 18-pitch bullpen session Saturday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Ober has been on the injured list since the end of April due to a right groin strain, but he's been cleared to resume mound work. The right-hander will presumably need to increase his pitch count before returning to game action, so it's not yet clear when he'll rejoin the Twins' rotation.

    Ober (groin) was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday, retroactive to April 29.

    Ober exited Thursday's start against the Tigers due to a right groin strain and felt better Friday, but he'll still miss at least one turn through the rotation. Cole Sands was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday, while Josh Winder is a candidate to serve as a spot starter next week.

    Ober was removed from Thursday's game against the Tigers in the top of the fourth inning due to an apparent injury, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Ober gave up two singles and a balk during the fourth inning, and he exited the game after visiting with the athletic trainer. The right-hander threw 73 pitches and allowed a run on six hits and two walks while striking out three in 3.2 innings prior to his departure. The nature and severity of his injury haven't been revealed, and it's not yet clear whether he'll be able to make his next turn through the rotation, which is tentatively scheduled for Tuesday in Baltimore.
