Red Sox's Trevor Hildenberger: Makes mechanical adjustment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger adjusted his mechanics during the offseason, Christopher Smith of MassLive.com reports.

Hildenberger described his 2019 season as "miserable," but the Red Sox will give him a chance to help the team's bullpen in 2020. The side-arming right-hander said he never felt right mechanically last season, which diminished his velocity and negatively impacted movement and location. His groundball rate dropped to 41.3 percent, down from 60.3 percent the previous season. "I just felt off," he said. "And I think I corrected some things this offseason and I feel much, much better." Hildenberger is not a hard thrower, so movement and location are important.

Red Sox's Trevor Hildenberger: Gets camp invite from Red Sox
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger signed with the Red Sox as a non-roster invitee Saturday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Hildenberger didn't look good in his 16.1 innings for the Twins last season, posting a 10.47 ERA and a 2.27 WHIP. He can blame a .459 BABIP for some of his struggles, but his 4.81 FIP wasn't exactly promising.

Trevor Hildenberger: Non-tendered by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger was non-tendered by the Twins on Monday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

The 28-year-old righty saved seven games in 2018 and has nine saves over the past three seasons, but gave up 19 runs in 16.1 innings last season. In terms of wins above replacement, he has been replacement level or worse in each of the last two seasons, with his career-best season coming as a rookie in 2017. If he catches on elsewhere on a big-league deal, he would be ticketed for low-leverage work.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Joins big-league roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger was called up by the Twins on Tuesday.

Hildenberger has endured a rough season thus far. He struggled to an 8.36 ERA in 14 innings before being demoted in mid-May and then spent two months on the injured list with a right flexor mass strain. He looks to be back on track now; he allowed just one run in 12.1 minor-league innings after returning from the injury.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Back from IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger (arm) was activated from the 7-day injured list Tuesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Hildenberger was placed on the MiLB injured list in mid-June due to a right flexor mass strain, but after finishing up a rehab assignment in the Gulf Coast League, he'll return to Triple-A Rochester, where he's posted an 8.44 ERA and 1.96 WHIP with nine strikeouts over 10.2 innings this season.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Begins rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger (arm) began a rehab assignment in the Gulf Coast League on Saturday.

He has been on the shelf since early June with a flexor mass strain. If he gets fully healthy he could join the big-league bullpen when rosters expand in September.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: On minor-league IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger was placed on the 7-day injured list Monday with a right flexor mass strain.

This explains why Hildenberger hasn't pitched for Triple-A Rochester since June 8. Prior to suffering the injury, the right-hander compiled an 8.44 ERA, 1.88 WHIP and 9:3 K:BB in 10.2 innings with the Red Wings.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Sent to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

This move comes after Hildenberger allowed three runs on three hits while recording just one out in Wednesday's game against the Angels, raising his ERA to 8.36 on the season. The right-hander should rejoin the big-league bullpen once he smooths some kinks out in the minors. A corresponding roster move is expected to be announced prior to Thursday's series opener in Seattle.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Secures first save of 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger struck out the final two batters of Sunday's game against Detroit to pick up his first save of the season.

Hildenberger entered the contest with one out and the bases loaded in the ninth inning of a two-run ballgame, but he fanned John Hicks and Grayson Greiner to secure the victory. Blake Parker has been the top option for Minnesota in save situations so far this season and began the frame, but he worked his way into a mess, giving Hildenberger a chance to slam the door. He's now tossed 5.1 scoreless frames in eight appearances to begin the year.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Continues scoreless streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger threw a scoreless seventh inning in Saturday's win over Detroit. He's thrown 4.2 scoreless innings with seven strikeouts and one walk in seven appearances this season.

Hildenberger has settled into a setup role and doesn't appear to be among the pitchers used to close games. However, Minnesota's bullpen remains a fluid situation, so he could get save chances at some point.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Swoops in for win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger (1-0) recorded the win Tuesday, striking out the only batter he faced in a 5-4 extra-inning victory over the Royals.

After Taylor Rogers ran into trouble in the ninth inning with the score tied 4-4, Hildenberger got the call to face Billy Hamilton and fanned him on three pitches to end the threat. The sidearmer was then rewarded after the Twins pushed across the winning run in the 10th. Hildenberger seems to be falling into a very narrow role for new manager Rocco Baldelli -- he's only faced one batter in both of his appearances so far -- but if he continues to excel, he could yet be a factor in Minnesota's wide-open closer picture.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Could be part of closer commitee
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Twins manager Rocco Baldeli hasn't indicated his plans at closer and could use a bullpen-by-committee, and Hildenberger could be part of the mix after saving seven games last season, MLB.com reports.

Hildenberger has allowed two runs in five spring innings with five strikeouts and one walk. Trevor May is likely the leading candidate to close games along with Blake Paker, but Hildenberger could be in the mix along with Addison Reed, Taylor Rogers and Fernando Romero. However, Hildenberger could also be a candidate to be sent to Triple-A to begin the season since he has a minor-league option remaining.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Crisp spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger threw a scoreless inning with two strikeouts in his first spring appearance in Saturday's split squad win over Tampa Bay.

Hildenberger is in the mix for the closer role in what could be a wide-open competition. It's also possible the Twins could use a committee approach under new manager Rocco Baldelli. Hildenberger, Trevor May, Blake Parker, Addison Reed and even Fernando Romero could be in the mix for saves.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Allows four runs, takes loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger (4-6) allowed four runs on three hits in one-third of an inning to take the loss against the Tigers on Tuesday. He struck out one and walked one.

Hildenberger entered the game with the Twins up 1-0 in the eighth inning and put two runners on via a single and a walk before giving up RBI base hits to Nicholas Castellanos and Niko Goodrum. He was then relieved by Trevor May but both Castellanos and Goodrum came around to score on an RBI double by James McCann. Hildenberger has now allowed runs to score in five straight games and has seen his ERA balloon to 5.25 on the season. The righty is 7-for-11 in save chances on the year and would figure to close out the season as the closer, but nothing is for certain.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Records seventh save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

HIldenberger allowed a run on two hits in an inning of work but still came away with his seventh save of the season Tuesday against the Tigers. He struck out two.

Working with a three-run lead, Hildenberger allowed a hit and a run-scoring single as the hosts drew within two. He then uncorked a wild pitch, which brought a runner to third, but he was able to strike out the next batter to end the game. Hildenberger has now allowed seven earned runs over his last 2.1 innings.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Collapses in ninth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger (4-4) blew the save and suffered the loss against the Royals on Friday. He gave up five earned runs on four hits and a walk while generating only a single out.

Hildenberger was able to get the first batter of the inning to ground out, but then the wheels fell off as he gave up a RBI single before Salvador Perez connected on a game-winning grand slam to seal the victory for the Royals. Hildenberger hadn't allowed an earned run in his previous seven appearances, but he now has three blown saves in nine opportunities this season. Following Friday's loss, his ERA stands at 4.70 in 2018.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Locks down sixth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger pitched 1.1 scoreless innings with a strikeout and one hit allowed Wednesday to earn the save against the Yankees.

Hildenberger struck out Andrew McCutchen to end the eighth inning, then worked around a one-out single in the ninth to secure the save. The 27-year-old's 4.06 ERA isn't great, but he's successfully converted all six save opportunities since taking over the primary closing duties, while also picking up a pair of wins in that span.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Nails down fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger tossed a perfect ninth inning Wednesday to record his fifth save of the season in a 4-3 win over Cleveland.

He needed only eight pitches (seven strikes) to close things out. Hildenberger seems to have settled down a little since taking over as the primary ninth-inning option for the Twins, posting a 3.52 ERA in his last seven appearances while converting all five of his save chances, but his 6:4 K:BB in 7.2 innings over that stretch is far from dominant and he's likely to be a volatile fantasy asset down the stretch.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Nabs fourth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger allowed a solo home run but still managed to record his fourth save Thursday against the Athletics.

The Twins turned to Hildenberger in the save situation Thursday after bypassing him in favor of Taylor Rogers and Matt Magill in a similar situation Tuesday. Hildenberger was noted as the favorite by manager Paul Molitor, though he has now allowed five home runs across his last eight innings. If he is able to emerge as the preferred closer, he could provide a decent number of saves down the stretch as the Twins remain competitive despite not being in playoff contention.

Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: Doesn't get save chance Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hildenberger has converted all three of his save chances since the trade of Fernando Rodney, but the closer role remains an open competition, Zonecoverage.com reports. "To be honest with you, with Hildy getting off to a good start, (he's the frontrunner), but it might just not play out that way." said manager Paul Molitor.

Matt Magill started the ninth inning in Friday's game with a one-run lead, but was pulled with two outs. Taylor Rogers got the final out for the save. Hildenberger had pitched two consecutive games before Thursday, so perhaps he was simply held out to give him another day of rest, but Friday's game suggestd the Twins may use a committee or tryout approach at closer the next few weeks.
