  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Bounces back for eighth win

    Ryan (8-4) allowed one earned run on three hits and no walks while striking out nine across five innings to earn the win Wednesday against Detroit.

    Ryan dominated the Tigers, racking up 18 swinging strikes on only 78 total pitches. It was a needed bouneback effort for Ryan, as he allowed 10 earned runs his last turn through the rotation. Setting aside that disaster, Ryan has allowed two or fewer earned runs in his five remaining starts since July 1. He now owns a 3.67 ERA with an 89:25 K:BB across 90.2 innings on the campaign.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Lit up for 10 runs

    Ryan (7-4) allowed 10 runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out seven over 4.2 innings Friday, taking the loss against the Padres.

    The Padres teed off, tagging Ryan for five home runs that accounted for all but one of the 10 runs against him. This was just the second time he's been taken deep multiple times this year. Unsurprisingly, this was the 26-year-old's worst start of the season, and it inflated his ERA from 2.89 to 3.78 through 85.2 innings in 16 starts. He'll look to keep the ball in the yard in his next projected start, which is tentatively expected to be against the Tigers next week.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Secures seventh win

    Ryan (7-3) earned the win Saturday in Detroit after giving up one run on four hits with seven strikeouts and one walk over 5.2 innings.

    The right-hander kept the Tigers off the board through five innings , but Riley Greene tripled in the sixth and was brought home by Javier Baez to put Detroit on the board. It's the second straight start with exactly one run allowed for Ryan, through he failed to complete six frames in either contest. He has a 2.89 ERA, 1.05 WHIP and 73:23 K:BB across 81 innings and tentatively lines up to pitch next weekend in San Diego.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Limits damage against Brewers

    Ryan allowed one earned run on two hits and two walks while striking out three across 5.1 innings Wednesday against the Brewers. He did not factor into the decision.

    Ryan surrendered a solo home run to Jace Peterson to account for his only earned run. He was otherwise effective, though he wasn't particularly elusive -- he induced eight swinging strikes on 78 total pitches -- and also walked more than two batters for the first time in his last seven starts. For the season, Ryan owns a 2.99 ERA and 66:22 K:BB across 75.1 frames.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Lasts four innings

    Ryan allowed three runs (two earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out three across four innings Wednesday against the White Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

    Ryan limited damage effectively for most of his outing, but he allowed multiple baserunners in three of his four innings. That resulted in a short start -- he needed 85 pitches to record 12 outs -- that was ultimately spoiled by a two-run homer by Eloy Jimenez. Ryan has been inconsistent across five starts since returning from the COVID-19 injured list, maintaining a 4.47 ERA with a 21:6 K:BB across 26.2 innings.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Allows three runs in win

    Ryan (6-3) earned the win against the Rockies on Sunday, allowing three runs on eight hits while striking out one and walking one over five innings.

    Ryan managed to escape Sunday's contest with the win despite allowing eight hits and striking out only one batter. He threw 64 of 102 pitches for strikes across five frames. Two runs came thanks to RBI doubles and the other on a solo shot from Charlie Blackmon. Ryan has lasted more than five innings five times in 11 games this season. The righty will take a 3.20 ERA into his next appearance.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Strikes out seven in quality start

    Ryan gave up three earned runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven over six innings in a 6-5 loss to the Guardians on Tuesday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Ryan bounced back from a poor outing the last time out against the Mariners to pitch a quality start and miss plenty of bats. His 101 pitches are the second most he has thrown this season, and the three earned runs he gave up raised his ERA to an even 3.00 on the year. The rookie right-hander's 3.42 xERA and 4.47 xFIP suggest that his solid numbers to date could be in line for some regression. Ryan lines up to next take the hill this weekend at home against the Rockies.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Handed loss in return

    Ryan (5-3) allowed four runs on five hits and a walk with three strikeouts in 4.2 innings, taking the loss versus the Mariners on Tuesday.

    Ryan threw 74 pitches (45 strikes) in the outing, but two-run home runs by Eugenio Suarez and Ty France were enough to sink him. The Twins provided virtually no support with just four hits (all singles) and two walks in the contest. Ryan has allowed more than two runs in just two of his nine starts this season, so it's safe to assume he was a bit rusty after a bout with COVID-19. He has a 2.81 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 45:15 K:BB across 48 innings this season, and he'll look to correct course next week at home versus the Guardians.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Activated Tuesday

    Ryan (COVID-19) was activated ahead of his start Tuesday in Seattle.

    He logged three scoreless innings while throwing 40 total pitches in his rehab start with Triple-A St. Paul last Thursday. If he is efficient in his first start back, Ryan could go deep enough to qualify for the win, but that's not a given.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Confirmed to start Tuesday

    The Twins will activate Ryan (illness) from the COVID-19-related injured list to start Tuesday's game in Seattle, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Minnesota will get two key rotation cogs back in the fold for the series in Seattle, as Sonny Gray (pectoral) will be activated from the 15-day injured list to start Wednesday. The Twins will officially reinstate Ryan shortly before Tuesday's 10:10 p.m. ET opening pitch after the rookie right-hander tossed three scoreless innings in a rehab start with Triple-A St. Paul last Thursday. Because he hasn't pitched for the big club since May 21 after testing positive for COVID-19 and tossed only 40 pitches in his rehab outing, Ryan may be limited in his return.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Set to return next week

    Ryan (illness) will start Tuesday or Wednesday against the Mariners, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Ryan began a rehab assignment at Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday and allowed a hit and no walks while striking out four in three scoreless innings. The Twins haven't yet settled on a date for him to rejoin the starting rotation, but he'll pitch sometime during a road trip to Seattle next week. The right-hander posted a 2.63 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 27.1 innings over his five starts prior to his absence.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Begins rehab assignment Thursday

    Ryan (illness) will report to Triple-A St. Paul for a rehab start Thursday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    The 26-year-old has been on the COVID-19 injured list the past two weeks, and he'll require a start in the minors before rejoining the big-league rotation. Ryan could be back with the Twins sometime next week if all goes well during Thursday's start with St. Paul.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Rehab start likely on tap

    Manager Rocco Baldelli confirmed Tuesday that Ryan (illness) will likely require a minor-league rehab start before returning from the COVID-19-related injured list, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Though Ryan is throwing again after he cleared all COVID-19-related protocols since testing positive for the virus May 25, he'll apparently need some time to build back up for starting duty after he was sidelined for nearly two weeks. Baldelli didn't specify when Ryan will begin his rehab assignment or which affiliate he'll join, but he'll presumably report to the minors later this week.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: May need rehab start

    Ryan (COVID-19) may need to make a rehab start before returning to the big-league rotation, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    This decision is still up in the air, but it's worth noting that it's not a given that Ryan will slot right back into the rotation once he is activated. He is scheduled to throw a higher intensity bullpen session either Monday or Tuesday.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Not yet back from COVID-19 IL

    Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said Thursday that Ryan (illness) is "a tick behind" Gilberto Celestino (illness) in the two players' respective recoveries from positive COVID-19 tests, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Celestino has cleared all COVID-19-related protocols and is participating in a workout at Target Field on Thursday, so Baldelli's comments would seem to imply that Ryan needs at least one more negative COVID-19 test before he's able to report to the team facility. Minnesota is uncertain if Ryan will require a rehab start prior to being activated from the COVID-19 injured list, but because he's been away from the team since testing positive for the virus May 25, he'll almost certainly need an extended bullpen outing at the very least before the Twins are comfortable slotting him back in the rotation. With that in mind, Ryan seems unlikely to make a start during the Twins' upcoming three-game series in Toronto that begins Friday.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Placed on COVID-19 list

    The Twins placed Ryan on the COVID-19-related injured list Wednesday.

    With Ryan heading to the COVID-19 IL, the Twins summoned Devin Smeltzer from Triple-A St. Paul to take the rookie right-hander's spot in the rotation Thursday against the Royals. It's unclear whether Ryan tested positive for the virus or is being deactivated as a matter of precaution, but it's possible he won't have to miss more than one turn through the rotation while he's on the COVID-19 IL. More information on Ryan's status should come by the end of the week.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Fans six in win

    Ryan (5-2) earned the win Saturday, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over 5.2 innings against the Royals. He struck out six.

    Ryan was efficient, facing 24 batters and retiring 17 on just 79 pitches. In another era, Ryan may have gone deeper into the contest, but manager Rocco Baldelli decided to play the matchups in the sixth inning with the bases loaded. Ryan has allowed two runs over 11.2 innings with an 11:2 K:BB in his last two starts since his four-run hiccup against Houston back on May 10. He has a sparkling 2.28 ERA overall this season.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Back in win column

    Ryan (4-2) allowed one run on four hits over six innings Sunday, striking out five and earning a win over Cleveland.

    Jose Ramirez's solo shot in the fourth inning was the only damage against Ryan in the strong outing. The 25-year-old righty has now allowed fewer than three runs in six of his first seven starts this season, registering a 2.39 ERA through 37.2 innings. Ryan will carry a 36:12 K:BB into his projected outing in Kansas City next weekend.
