Twins' Sean Poppen: Optioned to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was optioned to the Twins' alternate site Tuesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

Poppen has bounced on and off the Twins' roster all season, spending five separate periods with the team. He didn't get into a game during his latest stint, which lasted just three days. Homer Bailey (biceps) was activated from the 45-day injured list in a corresponding move.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Rejoins big-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was recalled from the alternate training site Friday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

The 26-year-old will rejoin the Twins for the final stretch of the regular season with Jake Odorizzi (finger) landing on the injured list. Poppen has given up four runs on nine hits with a 10:4 K:BB over 7.2 innings this season.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Heads back to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins optioned Poppen to their alternate site Wednesday.

Poppen was called up from the alternate site to serve as the Twins' 29th man for Tuesday's doubleheader with the Cardinals. He came on in relief in the second game -- a 6-4 Twins loss -- striking out one of the two batters he faced and allowing a base knock to the other. He'll now head back to the alternate site as the Twins reduce their roster to the normal 28 men prior to their next game Friday against the Indians.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Sent down Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was optioned to the Twins' alternate training site Saturday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Poppen struggled Friday against the Tigers as he allowed two runs on three hits over two-thirds of an inning. He'll head to alternate camp to right the ship but could return to the major-league bullpen at some point over the final few weeks of the season.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Recalled by Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was recalled by the Twins on Saturday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

Poppen has been shuttled between alternate camp and the major-league roster to begin the season, but he could see slightly extended time on the 28-man roster after Jake Odorizzi (abdomen) and Zack Littell (elbow) were placed on the 10-day injured list. Poppen should pitch mainly in lower-leverage situations after posting a 3.00 ERA and 2.00 WHIP with five strikeouts over three innings in his first two relief appearances this year.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Returns to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins optioned Poppen to their alternate training site following Saturday's doubleheader with the Royals.

Poppen was called up from the alternate site in St. Paul to serve as the 29th man for the twin bill, so he was never expected to stick around long with the big club. The right-hander has made two relief appearances for Minnesota this season, giving up a run over three innings.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Serving as 29th man
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was recalled to serve as the 29th man during Saturday's doubleheader against the Royals, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

Poppen was optioned to the Twins' alternate training site Sunday, but he'll be available out of the bullpen for Saturday's twin bill. The right-hander made two appearances as a reliever to begin the season, allowing one run on four hits and two walks while striking out five over three innings. He should be returned to the alternate training site following the doubleheader.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Sent to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins optioned Poppen to their alternate training site Sunday.

Poppen worked two innings in relief in Sunday's 9-6 loss to the Royals, giving up a run on two hits and two walks while striking out four. Since he wasn't likely to be available out of the bullpen for at least the next couple of days, Poppen was optioned to make room for a fresh arm in Cory Gearrin.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Joins big-league bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins recalled Poppen from their alternate training site prior to Sunday's game against the Indians, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

Poppen will assume the active roster spot of starter Homer Bailey (biceps), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. The 26-year-old right-hander could be one of several relievers the Twins turn to Sunday, as the club is expected to treat the series finale as a bullpen game once opener Tyler Clippard exits the contest.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Optioned to minors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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

Prior to the suspension of spring training, Poppen compiled a 3.00 ERA and 10:3 K:BB across nine innings. It remains to be seen whether Poppen will work as a starter or reliever in the minors.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Sharp in spring debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen threw two scoreless innings with two strikeouts and reached 94 mph on the radar gun in Saturday's spring training win over Pittsburgh.

Poppen was thought to be a little behind the other starters since he was coming back from an elbow injury that prematurely ended his 2019 season. However, his appearance in Minnesota's first spring game likely shows he's at full strength. He'll compete for a bullpen role this spring. Poppen was an unheralded prospect at the start of last season, yet he rose from Double-A to the majors based on a strong strikeout rate (10.6 K/9 at Triple-A and 12.4 K/9 at Double-A). He'll need to improve his control to stick in the majors.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Could contend for bullpen role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen may begin the spring a little behind the other starters as he comes back from an elbow injury, but he could compete for a long-relief role, MLB.com reports.

Poppen has been throwing bullpen sessions in spring training and appears ready to appear in games at the start of spring. He missed the last six weeks of last season with a right elbow contusion. Poppen was an unheralded prospect at the start of the season, yet he rose from Double-A to the majors based on a strong strikeout rate (10.6 K/9 at Triple-A and 12.4 K/9 at Double-A). He'll need to improve his control to stick in the majors.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Transferred to 60-day IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen (elbow) was called up from Triple-A Rochester on Sunday and transferred to the 60-day injured list with a right elbow contusion.

The Twins brought the injured Poppen back on the roster solely to move him to the 60-day IL and open up an extra spot on the 40-man roster. He's pitched across three levels for the season -- including for the Twins -- but did most of his work for Rochester, where he accrued a 3.84 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 68 strikeouts across 61 innings.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Heads to MiLB IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was placed on the 7-day injured list Tuesday with a right elbow contusion, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

It's unclear when the injury occurred, but Poppen will be sidelined for at least the next week while on the mend. He sports a 3.84 ERA and 1.31 WHIP with 68 punchouts over 61 innings this season for Triple-A Rochester.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Bumped off active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Twins optioned Poppen to Triple-A Rochester on Thursday.

There was no room at the inn for Poppen after the Twins required a roster spot for reliever Sam Dyson, who was acquired from the Giants on Wednesday. Poppen's latest stint with the Twins lasted a week, with the right-hander making three appearances and striking out seven over 4.1 innings but surrendering four runs.

Twins' Sean Poppen: Back with big club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Poppen was recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Thursday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

Poppen will replace Devin Smeltzer -- who was optioned to the minors following Wednesday's game -- on the roster and in the bullpen. In one appearance with the big club this season, Poppen surrendered three runs on five hits and four walks while striking out two across four innings. The 25-year-old righty has worked primarily as a starter in the minors, so he should offer length out of the bullpen during his time in the majors.
