Twins' Joe Ryan: Set to start Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (wrist) will make his next start in Wednesday's game against the Cubs, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

Ryan was pushed back from starting Sunday while recovering from a bruised right wrist, but he'll rejoin the rotation Wednesday after receiving a couple extra days to recover. The 25-year-old has pitched well through his first three big-league starts with a 2.12 ERA, 0.53 WHIP and 14:2 K:BB in 17 innings.

Twins' Joe Ryan: Not starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (wrist) won't start Sunday against the Blue Jays as Luke Farrell will instead start a bullpen game for the Twins, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Ryan has been dealing with a bruised right wrist after being hit by a comebacker in his previous start last Tuesday versus Cleveland, and he'll receive some extra rest between outings. There's been no indication the right-hander is heading to the injured list, so he could be an option to start Tuesday against the Cubs following Monday's scheduled off day.

Twins' Joe Ryan: X-rays negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan's X-rays were negative Tuesday after he was struck in the arm by a comebacker, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

Ryan struck out five and allowed just one run on three hits in a walk over five innings of work Tuesday against Cleveland before a Myles Straw liner knocked him out of the game in the sixth inning. He marched directly off the field without waiting for team trainers, which could have indicated a more serious injury, but he's been diagnosed with nothing more than a right wrist contusion. Whether or not the injury will force him to the injured list is not yet clear.

Twins' Joe Ryan: Hit by comebacker
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan exited his start Tuesday against Cleveland after getting struck in the arm by a comebacker, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

Ryan was pitching well in the matinee of Tuesday's twin bill before a Myles Straw liner hit him in the sixth inning. In five innings of work, he allowed just one run on three hits and a walk while striking out five batters. The nature and severity of his injury aren't yet clear, but it's possible it's a bad one, as he marched straight to the dugout without even waiting for a visit from team trainers. Given that there's less than three weeks left in the regular season, anything more than a minor issue could wind up shutting him down for the year.

Twins' Joe Ryan: Takes perfect game into seventh
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (1-1) allowed just one hit and struck out four through seven shutout innings, picking up his first career win in Wednesday's 3-0 victory over Cleveland.

The Minnesota rookie retired the first 19 batters he faced before Amed Rosario broke up the party in the seventh with a single. The base hit was the only damage to Ryan's line, as he had Cleveland thoroughly perplexed for the entire outing and did not issue a free pass. While the right-hander doesn't possess wipeout velocity, his tendency to challenge hitters and an arm angle that makes the ball appear as if it's coming from his shoulder make him an interesting pitcher to watch. It may be too late for the 25-year-old to make a significant impact in 2021, but this is the type of start that the brass will remember when assembling next season's rotation.

Twins' Joe Ryan: Staying in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against Cleveland.

After a mostly encouraging showing in his MLB debut Sept. 1 against the Cubs -- Ryan gave up three runs on three hits and a walk while striking out five over five innings -- the 25-year-old right-hander will stick in the Minnesota rotation for a second straight turn. Given that he's an older prospect, the Twins aren't expected to impose any major restrictions on Ryan's workload the rest of the season, so he should get a full run of starts in September as the organization looks to assess whether he's a fit for the Opening Day rotation in 2022.

Twins' Joe Ryan: Takes loss in first MLB start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan (0-1) was tagged with the loss Wednesday against the Cubs as the result of allowing three runs on three hits and one walk over five innings. He struck out five.

Ryan wasn't bad in his first big-league start -- he induced 14 swinging strikes and surrendered only three hits over five frames. However, a third-inning three-run home run by Frank Schwindel was all the Cubs needed to secure the victory in a contest during which Minnesota was shut out on only two hits. Ryan wowed with a 92:12 K:BB across 66 Triple-A innings this season, and he showed good swing-and-miss potential in his major-league debut. He'll likely stick in the rotation for the remainder of September as he auditions for the team's 2022 rotation.

Twins' Joe Ryan: Promoted for first MLB start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins selected Ryan's contract from Triple-A St. Paul ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Cubs, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

One of the prospects Minnesota received in the July 22 deal that sent Nelson Cruz to Tampa Bay, Ryan is expected to get a trial in the Twins rotation for the final month of the season as he aims to secure a starting role with the big club in 2022. Between stops at St. Paul and Durham this season, Ryan was one of the most dominant pitchers at the Triple-A level. Over 66 innings, the 25-year-old righty held opposing hitters to a .173 average while compiling a 3.41 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 92:12 K:BB.

Twins' Joe Ryan: Looks on track for Wednesday debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins plan to select Ryan's contract from Triple-A St. Paul when rosters expand Wednesday, and he'll likely be in line to start in his MLB debut later that day in Minnesota's series finale with the Cubs, Darren Wolfson of Channel 5 Saint Paul reports.

Minnesota is still listing their starter for Wednesday as "TBA," but with Randy Dobnak (finger) set to return from the 60-day injured list to start Friday against the Rays and Andrew Albers in line to take the hill Saturday, Ryan represents the most logical candidate to fill the opening for the series with the Cubs. After being acquired from the Rays on July 22 in the Nelson Cruz deal, Ryan didn't make his organizational debut until Aug. 20, as he had been a member of the Team USA roster in the Olympic Games in Tokyo. Much like he did at Triple-A Durham prior to the Olympics, Ryan has impressed in his first two turns at St. Paul, covering nine innings between the starts while allowing two earned runs and striking out 17. Expect the Twins to give him a look in a starting role over the final month of the season in what amounts to an audition for a spot in the 2022 Opening Day rotation.

Twins' Joe Ryan: Could be called up Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan is a candidate to be called up to start against the Chicago Cubs on Wednesday, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Manager Rocco Baldelli said "we could see him in September" when asked about Ryan being recalled. The Twins will push back Andrew Albers' next start to Saturday, which leaves an opening on Sept. 1 -- also the first day of expanded rosters. Ryan has given up just up two runs with 17 strikeouts in nine innings in his first two starts at Triple-A after he was both traded to the Twins and returned from playing in the Olympics.

Twins' Joe Ryan: Strong impression after trade
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan gave up one run over five innings with eight strikeouts and one walk Wednesday for Triple-A St. Paul. He's given up two runs with 17 strikeouts in nine innings in his first two starts for the Saints after he was both traded to the Twins and returned from playing in the Olympics.

Ryan and Drew Strotman were traded from the Rays to the Twins as part of a trade for Nelson Cruz. Ryan is a candidate to be called up the majors in September as the Twins may decide to give him some major-league innings as they evaluate their options for 2022. Ryan has a 3.41 ERA and 12.5 K/9 at Triple-A between St. Paul and Durham.

Twins' Joe Ryan: Dealt to Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan and Drew Strotman were traded from the Rays to the Twins on Thursday as part of a trade for Nelson Cruz.

Ryan was one of the top pitching prospects in the Rays' farm system, and he began the year at Triple-A Durham. He posted a 3.63 ERA and 0.79 WHIP in 57 innings across 12 appearances (11 starts). The right-hander also impressed during spring training this year, and he could be in consideration to make his major-league debut at some point in 2021, especially if the Twins trade away some starting pitchers prior to the trade deadline.

Rays' Joe Ryan: Impresses prior to reassignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan, who Adam Berry of MLB.com reports was reassigned to minor league camp Tuesday, has fired three clean innings across three Grapefruit League appearances, recording four strikeouts.

A seventh-round pick in the 2018 first-year player draft, Ryan has been impressive at every minor-league stop thus far, with his 2019 stint at Double-A Montgomery counting as his highest professional foray. Ryan was a candidate for the Rays' 60-man roster pool last summer but never saw major-league action. However, his body of work this spring has at least planted the seed for a possible big-league promotion at some point in 2021, especially if the right-hander is able to keep it up wherever he starts the minor-league season.

Rays' Joe Ryan: In line for roster pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan is expected to be named to Tampa Bay's 60-man roster pool, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The 24-year-old received an invite to major-league spring training but was reassigned to minor-league camp shortly before operations were shut down. Ryan began 2019 at High-A Charlotte and earned a late-season promotion to Double-A Montgomery, delivering a 3.38 ERA and 1.15 WHIP in three starts.

Rays' Joe Ryan: Reassigned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday, Juan Toribio of MLB.com reports.

Ryan was among five other Rays cut from the Tampa Bay spring roster Wednesday. The 23-year-old climbed from Low-A to Double-A in 2019, totaling a 1.96 ERA with a 0.84 WHIP across 123.2 innings. The right-hander spent valuable time with the major-league coaching staff to begin spring training, and he's now heading to the minors to continue developing as one of the Rays' top pitching prospects.

Rays' Joe Ryan: Invited to big-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Ryan was invited to the Rays' major-league spring training Monday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

Ryan competed at the Low-A, High-A and Double-A levels in 2019, totaling a 1.96 ERA with a 0.84 WHIP across 123.2 innings. He'll get the chance to further develop with the major-league coaching staff during spring training, but the 23-year-old will likely require more time in the minors prior to making his major-league debut.

Rays' Joe Ryan: Moves up to Double-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rays promoted Ryan from High-A Charlotte to Double-A Montgomery on Tuesday, Sam Dykstra of MiLB.com reports.

The 23-year-old righty will move up a rung on the minor-league ladder on the heels of earning Florida State League Pitcher of the Week honors for turning in a one-hit, 13-strikeout gem in his most recent start Aug. 7. After the seven-inning shutout performance, Ryan now maintains a 1.79 ERA and 159:23 K:BB across 110.1 innings between Charlotte and Low-A Bowling Green in 2019.
