Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Taking advantage of delay
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe will have a chance to ramp up fully during the shutdown period, leaving the door open for him to make the 26-man roster, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

He was apparently cut from the competition for the fifth starter's spot because he had a personal leave of absence from spring camp that prohibited him from getting stretched out. However, during this down time, he will be able to get up to speed, so what was true two weeks ago will be a non-issue when play resumes. Even so, Thorpe figures to be trailing at least Randy Dobnak for a rotation job, and Rich Hill (elbow) could be ready to slot in if the delay stretches into June.

Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Monday.

Thorpe was theoretically competing for the rotation spot left temporarily vacant by Michael Pineda (suspension) and Rich Hill (elbow), but the fact that he's been sent down over two weeks before Opening Day indicates that he was always a long shot. The young lefty's 25.0 percent strikeout in his 27.2-inning debut last season hints at good things for his future, though it came with a 6.18 ERA.

Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Back in camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe (personal) rejoined Minnesota's spring camp Sunday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Thorpe took a leave of absence to attend to a personal matter, but he's now back with the team. The 24-year-old had a 6.18 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 31:10 K:BB over 27.2 major-league innings last season and is competing for a roster spot this spring.

Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Away for personal reasons
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe left Twins' camp Tuesday to attend to a personal matter, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The nature of Thorpe's absence and his expected return date are not yet clear. The 24-year-old was already in a battle for a roster spot after struggling to a 6.18 ERA in 27.2 innings last season, so an extended absence would likely sink his chances of breaking camp with the big-league squad.

Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Scoops up win in long relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe (3-2) worked four innings in relief and was the pitcher of record in Thursday's 8-5 win over the Royals. He surrendered two runs on six hits and a walk while striking out four.

Thorpe's last appearance came as a spot starter in Cleveland last weekend, but he was needed out of the bullpen in the series opener after the struggling Kyle Gibson was pulled midway through the second inning. While he put plenty of runners on base in the outing, Thorpe escaped some big jams to mitigate the damage while benefiting from some quality run support. The Twins' pitching schedule doesn't currently call for Thorpe to make any additional starts this season, but that could change next week if Minnesota has already clinched the AL Central and manager Rocco Baldelli wants to extend rest to some of the team's rotation options ahead of the playoffs.

Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Knocked around in short start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe lasted just 3.2 innings Saturday against Cleveland, allowing five runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out six batters. He did not factor into the decision.

Thorpe allowed the first five batters of the game to reach base, though he limited the damage to just two runs after recording three straight strikeouts with the bases loaded. The impressive escape didn't exactly foreshadow an improved performance, though, as Thorpe was pulled after allowing three more runs over the next three frames. He was fortunate to escape with a no-decision after the Twins rallied late to win.

Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Starting Game 2 Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe will start Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Indians.

While Thorpe is a starting pitcher by trade and hasn't appeared in a game since Sept. 6, he also hasn't pitched four-plus innings in a game since Aug. 7, so he may not go deep enough to qualify for the win. Thorpe has a 5.30 ERA in 18.2 MLB innings, working primarily in relief.

Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Stuck with loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe (2-2) took the loss Friday, allowing a run and a hit while striking out one in an inning of work in a 6-2 extra-innings loss to the Indians.

Thorpe allowed leadoff hitter Yasiel Puig aboard with a single to start the 11th. Reliever Brusdar Graterol allowed the inherited runner to score the go-ahead run, sticking Thorpe with the loss. The 23-year-old has now allowed four runs over 4.1 innings since receiving a September callup from Triple-A Rochester. Thorpe was expected to serve as a primary pitcher in Sunday's series finale against the Indians, but it's unclear if the appearance Friday will change that plan.

Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Joins big club as September callup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins recalled Thorpe from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday.

One of the top advanced arms in Minnesota's system, Thorpe previously made six appearances (one start) with the Twins this season, working 14.1 total innings and giving up seven runs on 19 hits and three walks while striking out 14. The 23-year-old rookie could be an option to join the rotation when a replacement is first required Wednesday in Boston for Kyle Gibson, who was placed on the 10-day injured list after being diagnosed with ulcerative colitis.

Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Shuttled back to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe allowed two runs on three hits while striking out one over one inning Sunday against the Tigers. He was optioned to Triple-A Rochester after the game, per Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com.

Thorpe made two appearances during his latest trip to the big leagues, surrendering two runs over three innings of work. The Twins are expected to make a corresponding move prior to Tuesday's series opener against the White Sox.

Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Returns to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Thorpe made his major-league debut at the end of June and this is now his third promotion from Triple-A this season. The 23-year-old has a 3.18 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 10:2 K:BB through his first 11.1 innings in the bigs.

August 3, 2019 12:08 AM
Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Demoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe allowed a run on three hits and struck out one over 1.2 innings Friday against the Royals. He was optioned to Triple-A Rochester after the game, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

The Twins will likely add a fresh arm to the bullpen following Thorpe's demotion, though a corresponding move won't be made until Saturday. The southpaw owns a 3.18 ERA and 1.41 WHIP with 10 strikeouts over 11.1 innings this season in the big leagues.

July 22, 2019 04:56 PM
Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Back with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Monday.

Thorpe has worked primarily as a starter this season, so he should offer length out of Minnesota's bullpen during his time in the majors. The 23-year-old southpaw impressed in a spot start last month, allowing two runs across five innings while striking out seven. Zack Littell was optioned to the minors in a corresponding move.

June 30, 2019 08:36 PM
Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Sent back to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe (0-1) took the loss after allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven over five innings Sunday against the White Sox. He was optioned to Triple-A Rochester after the game, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Thorpe was called on to make a spot start Sunday, and despite turning in a decent outing, he was saddled with the loss. Minnesota is no longer in need of a sixth starter, resulting in a demotion for the 23-year-old southpaw. The Twins will make a corresponding move prior to Tuesday's game against the Athletics.

June 29, 2019 10:48 PM
Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Tabbed to start Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe will start Sunday's game against the White Sox, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Thorpe was called up from Triple-A Rochester on Friday and will make the spot start after Kyle Gibson was utilized out of the bullpen during Thursday's 18-inning affair. Thorpe has a 5.71 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 88:21 K:BB in 14 starts with Rochester.

June 29, 2019 04:48 PM
Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Recalled from Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe was recalled by the Twins on Friday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Thorpe is well rested, having last pitched with Triple-A Rochester on June 23, so he will provide insurance in case one of the team's starters gets chased early this weekend against the White Sox. If he gets into a game, it will be the 23-year-old's major-league debut. Overall, Thorpe is 3-4 with a 5.71 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 88:21 K:BB in 69.1 innings (14 starts) for Rochester this season.

Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Optioned to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe was demoted to Triple-A Rochester on Friday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Thorpe ended the 2018 campaign at Triple-A and saw success in limited chances. He posted a 3.32 ERA with a 26:6 K:BB over 21.2 frames as a starter. Minnesota's No. 9 fantasy prospect is expected to begin the regular season with the Red Wings.

August 15, 2018 11:08 AM
Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Promoted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe was promoted to Triple-A Rochester and will start Wednesday in Columbus, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

After missing the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons while recovering from Tommy John surgery and mononucleosis, Thorpe has returned to his prior high prospect status. He had a 3.58 ERA with a 10.9 K/9 and 2.5 BB/9 at Double-A.

July 14, 2018 03:48 PM
Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Hits inactive list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Thorpe was moved to the temporarily inactive list Saturday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

It's unclear as to why Thorpe was labeled inactive, but more news should be revealed in the near future. He's made 17 starts in 2018, posting a 3.95 ERA and 1.38 WHIP with a 106:24 K:BB over 84.1 innings.

March 7, 2018 09:36 AM
Twins' Lewis Thorpe: Sent back to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins optioned Thorpe to Double-A Chattanooga on Wednesday.

Thorpe was one of four pitchers optioned to the minors Wednesday as the Twins look to find more innings in spring games for hurlers with more realistic chances of making the Opening Day roster. The 22-year-old lefty has impressed when he has been able to take the mound during his time in the minors, but after missing the entire 2015 and 2016 seasons while recovering from Tommy John surgery and mononucleosis, the Twins need to see him pitch more innings before seriously considering him for a rotational spot with the big club down the road.
