  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Snags another save Tuesday

    Duran pitched a scoreless ninth inning on his way to a save in Tuesday's 2-0 win over the Tigers. He hit a batter and allowed a base knock.

    With Emilio Pagan unavailable after working two innings Monday, Duran was called upon in the ninth Tuesday. He allowed a single to Miguel Cabrera to open the frame and hit Jeimer Candelario with one out in the inning, but he was able to get Willi Castro to ground into a double play to end the game. The 24-year-old now has now converted all four of his save opportunities this year while also snagging four holds. Duran has posted a 2.53 ERA and 0.75 WHIP with 31 punchouts over 21.1 innings in 16 appearances in 2022. Pagan still appears the favorite for the ninth inning, but the rookie seems to be a budding star in the big-leagues.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Notches third save

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Records six-out save

    Duran picked up his second save of the season Saturday against the Athletics, striking out five and allowing one walk in two hitless, scoreless innings.

    Duran entered the top of the eighth with a one-run lead and promptly struck out the side. He had a bit more of an adventurous ninth inning, walking Seth Brown with two outs before hitting Sean Murphy, but he struck out Christian Bethancourt to secure the save. He now owns a 3.68 ERA and a 42.1 percent strikeout rate through 14.2 innings this season.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Secures first save

    Duran struck out one batter in a perfect inning and earned a save over the Orioles on Monday.

    Getting the first save chance of his MLB career, Duran needed just 10 pitches to finish off the 2-1 victory against Baltimore. The 6-foot-5 righty has struck out eight batters during his active six-inning scoreless streak. He's lowered his ERA to 3.00 through 12 innings on the year.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Electric in MLB debut

    Duran threw two scoreless innings with four strikeouts and a walk in his MLB debut in Friday's loss to Seattle. He reached 100 mph with his fastball on six pitches. Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said he plans to use Duran in the middle innings while he adjusts to the majors, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Duran gave up hits to the first two batters he faced and then struck out the side in his first inning. The 24-year-old entered the game in the fifth inning and may be used in similar lower-leverage situations in the short term, but given his dominant arsenal he could be closing games before too long.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Makes MLB roster

    The Twins announced Monday that Duran will be included on the Opening Day roster.

    Duran was limited to just 16 innings in 2021 -- all at Triple-A St. Paul -- due to an elbow issue, but he made enough of an impression in spring training to push his way on to the Opening Day roster. During Grapefruit League play, Duran has turned in six scoreless innings while striking out eight batters and reaching triple digits with his fastball. He could easily be sent to Triple-A with a slow start to the season, but he could also quickly find a high-leverage role in the bullpen.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Could win big league role

    Duran is a candidate to win a spot on the pitching staff to begin the season, reports. "I wouldn't put him in a box, saying he's going down soon and that's the end of it," manager Rocco Baldelli said. "We're going to keep letting him pitch and let him show us what he is right now. I think he's getting to that point in his career where he's right on the brink of helping a big league team win a lot of games."

    Duran is one of Minnesota's top pitching prospects, but he threw just 16 innings last season due to elbow issues. He threw two scoreless innings in his spring debut and touched 100.4 mph with his fastball. It sounds like he's being considered for the bullpen, but the Twins do have an opening in the rotation as well.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Impressive in spring debut

    Duran threw two scoreless innings with two strikeouts in his spring debut Saturday against the Red Sox. He reached 100.4 mph with his fastball, according to Do-Hyoung Park of

    Duran is one of Minnesota's top pitching prospects, but he threw just 16 innings last season due to elbow issues. He could contend for the major-league rotation later this season, but his workload may be managed as he works his way back to form, Park also reports.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Shut down for at least five weeks

    Duran (elbow) will be shut down for 5-to-6 weeks but will not need surgery for the time being, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Duran suffered an elbow strain on June 20. That no surgery was recommended at this time is a positive, though the team will be without one of its better pitching prospects for much -- if not all -- of the remainder of the season. Duran has thrown only 16 innings on the campaign, as he also dealt with a trapezius issue.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Shut down, being further evaluated

    Duran (elbow) has been shut down for the time being and will be further evaluated in the coming days, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Duran was placed on the 7-day IL on Sunday with a strained right elbow and he's now set to go through further imaging to see if there is anything more serious going on with the injury. The highly touted prospect will not throw for at least the next few days, and depending on the results of the additional imaging, possibly much longer.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Out with elbow strain

    Duran was placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A St. Paul with a strained right elbow, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    The 23-year-old missed the start of the season while dealing with trapezius tightness, and he'll now be sidelined by an elbow issue. Duran is Minnesota's top pitching prospect, and it's unclear how long he's expected to be on the shelf.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Sharp in return from injured list

    Duran (shoulder) returned from the injured list Saturday to make his first start of the season at Triple-A St. Paul. He gave up one run over three innings with six strikeouts and one walk.

    Duran went on the injured list after suffering from trapezius tightness during spring training. Duran relies on a power sinker that has touched triple digits on the radar gun, but he likely needs to develop a third pitch to remain a starter. The top Twins pitching prospect could make his debut with Minnesota later this season.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Working back from shoulder injury

    Duran has only recently started throwing after having some trapezius tightness in spring training, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Duran is a few weeks away from returning, according to the report. He'll begin the season on the injured list at Triple-A St. Paul as a result.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Heads to MiLB camp

    The Twins optioned Duran to their minor-league camp Sunday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Along with Duran, fellow pitchers Dakota Chalmers, Jordan Balazovic and Bailey Ober were also optioned as Minnesota made its first cuts of spring training. The Twins are expected to send the 23-year-old fireballer to Double-A Wichita or Triple-A St. Paul to continue his development as a starter, though Duran could make his big-league debut as a reliever once he's ultimately called up from the minors.
