Adrianza signed a one-year, $1.6 million contract with the Twins on Monday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.
Adrianza posted a career-best .349 OBP over 84 games with the Twins in 2019 to earn him a raise prior to hitting free agency after the 2020 season. The versatile infielder is unlikely to carve out a starting role next year given the Twins' depth, but he could still see a relatively consistent role in order to provide load management for the starting infielders.
Adrianza (oblique) is on the Twins' ALDS roster.
An oblique strain has kept Adrianza out of action since Sept. 12. He's seemingly ready to go now, however, and should fill a bench role during the division series.
Adrianza (oblique) has been told he will probably play two games this weekend, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Adrianza has been out of action since Sept. 12 with a right oblique strain. He'll likely need to show he's healthy to have a chance to be included on the playoff roster.
Adrianza (oblique) took swings on the field and participated in infield work Saturday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Manager Rocco Baldelli noted that Adrianza looked to be close to full strength during the workout, but the skipper was unwilling to commit to the utility man playing again in 2019. Adrianza has been out of action since Sept. 12 with the right oblique strain.
Adrianza (oblique) expects to be able to return this season, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
He will receive treatment for five days before possibly advancing to baseball activities. Even if Adrianza gets back before the end of the regular season, he would likely only get back for the final week and would be utilized in a part-time role.
Adrianza exited Thursday night's game against the Nationals with a right oblique strain, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
It's unclear as to when Adrianza suffered the injury, but he'll likely miss some time following this diagnosis. Ronald Torreyes replaced Adrianza at shortstop.
Adrianza is in Sunday's lineup against the Indians, hitting seventh and playing first base, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Adrianza had been available off the bench only as as a last resort due to an illness the past few days, but it looks like he's back to full speed.
Adrianza has been available off the bench only as as a last resort due to an illness, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
This explains why Adrianza hasn't been used as a defensive replacement late in close games the past few days. He's day-to-day.
Adrianza will start in right field and bat fifth Thursday against the White Sox, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
With three of the Twins' everyday players (Marwin Gonzalez, Max Kepler and Miguel Sano) considered day-to-day with injuries, Adrianza will not only capture his second straight start but occupy a prominent spot in the lineup. Both Kepler and Sano will be available off the bench and could be ready to rejoin the lineup as soon as Friday in Detroit, so Adrianza doesn't look like he'll have much longevity in the Twins' starting nine.
Adrianza will start at first base and bat seventh Monday against the Braves.
He'll crack the lineup for the fourth time in five games, despite going hitless in 10 at-bats over his prior three starts. Adrianza's ability to cover multiple spots in the infield and outfield enhance his playing-time outlook, but Marwin Gonzalez and Luis Arraez offer similar versatility with higher offensive floors. With that in mind, Adrianza will likely be hard pressed to maintain an everyday spot in the lineup, especially since the Twins are currently down only one regular player (Byron Buxton).
Adrianza went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple, two RBI and two runs scored in Sunday's 7-6 win over Oakland.
Adrianza finished a home run shy of the cycle but drove in the game-tying run in the ninth inning before scoring on Max Kepler's walkoff single. The 29-year-old utility man has scored 26 runs and driven in 17 in his limited playing time this season.
Adrianza (abdomen) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Unspecified abdominal issues put Adrianza on the IL, but he's received clearance to return without a minor-league rehab assignment. Adrianza has limited experience in the outfield, but he has played there a bit this season, so in addition to spot duty in the infield, the 29-year-old could see some time in the corners with several Twins outfielders on the IL.
Adrianza (abdomen) is expected to return from the injured list soon after he's first eligible Thursday, Chad Graff of The Atheletic Minnesota reports.
Adrianza hit the injured list last Tuesday with an unspecified abdominal issue. He should return to a bench role once he's ready to go.
Adrianza was placed on the injured list Tuesday with abdominal issues.
The utility man will be out at least until June 27 with this vague injury. Luis Arraez was recalled from Triple-A to take his spot on the roster.
Adrianza will start at first base and bat ninth Sunday against the Royals, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Manager Rocco Baldelli will reward Adrianza will a fourth consecutive start after the utility man rapped out five hits and drew a walk in the previous three contests. Adrianza offers some nice versatility and has made impressive strides at the plate this season -- his .794 OPS is 87 points better than his previous career high -- but he'll have trouble finding consistent playing time in a loaded Minnesota lineup once his recent surge ends.
Adrianza went 3-for-4 and with a three-run homer in an 8-1 win over the White Sox on Saturday.
Adrianza drove in four runs and his homer off Kelvin Herrera was his third since May 12. The 29-year-old nevertheless still bats near the bottom of the Twins' lineup, and he has a lackluster .231/.333/.397 slash line with no stolen bases this season.
Adrianza went 2-for-3 with a home run, two RBI and two runs scored in Friday's 7-1 win over the Mariners.
Adrianza opened the scoring with a solo home run in the third inning, and then knocked in first baseman C.J. Cron with a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. The infielder started at third base and batted eighth in the contest. Adrianza is hitting .200 with three homers, six RBI and 10 runs scored over 65 at-bats this season.
Adrianza will start at second base and bat seventh Sunday against the Tigers, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Adrianza was in the lineup for both halves of Saturday's doubleheader, finishing the day 1-for-6 with a pair of walks. Though he'll stick in the starting nine Sunday in place of a resting Jonathan Schoop, Adrianza likely won't be in store for a more extended run in the lineup anytime soon while he maintains a .423 OPS on the season.
Adrianza went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Monday's 1-0 win over Houston.
Adrianza's third-inning shot off Houston starter Justin Verlander proved to be the only run of the game. It's his only extra-base hit in 32 at-bats this season as he works in a utility role.
Adrianza is hitting eighth and starting at shortstop Wednesday against Kansas City, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Jonathan Schoop will have the day off Wednesday, which gives Adrianza his first start of the year. Adrianza will be the main middle-infield utility reserve with Marwin Gonzalez starting the year as the primary third baseman, so if either Schoop or shortstop Jorge Polanco go down, Adrianza should be the next man up.
