Top Twins News

  • Twins' Johan Camargo: Inks minors pact with Twins

    Camargo signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Sunday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    The switch-hitting journeyman can play all over the infield, and his most-played position in 2022 was shortstop. Camargo, who turns 29 next month, has slashed .208/.265/.319 with seven home runs and zero steals in 311 MLB plate appearances since the start of the 2020 season.

  • Twins' Elliot Soto: Minor-league deal with Twins

    Soto signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Tuesday.

    The 33 year-old infielder got added to Minnesota's 40-man roster in June but was designated for assignment a day later without appearing in a game. Soto is a glove-first player (81 wRC+ last year at Triple-A) whose upside is likely capped as a bench piece.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Shipped up north

    The Reds agreed to trade Farmer to the Twins on Friday in exchange for right-hander Casey Legumina, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.

    A late bloomer, Farmer became a regular for the Reds at shortstop over the past couple seasons. He led Cincinnati in plate appearances by a wide margin in 2022, though the team eventually moved Farmer off shortstop to give Jose Barrero, Spencer Steer and others some time late in the year. The 32-year-old Farmer is best utilized as a utility player, and that's almost certainly what he will be with Minnesota.

  • Twins' Alejandro Hidalgo: Sent to Minnesota

    The Angels traded Hidalgo to the Twins on Friday in exchange for Gio Urshela.

    Hidalgo, who will still be 19 years old when next season begins, pitched to a 4.62 ERA and 58:19 K:BB over 10 starts (39 innings) for Single-A Inland Empire last season. Minnesota will take a chance on the strikeout upside and avoid a tough arbitration decision with Urshela. Look for Hidalgo to begin next year back at the lowest level of full-season ball.

  • Twins' Brent Headrick: Joining 40-man roster

    Headrick was added to Minnesota's 40-man roster Tuesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Headrick posted a 3.32 ERA across 108.1 innings between High-A Cedar Rapids and Double-A Wichita last season, and the Twins added him to the 40-man roster in order to prevent him from potentially being selected during the upcoming Rule 5 draft.

  • Twins' Casey Legumina: Joins 40-man roster

    Legumina was added to the Twins' 40-man roster Tuesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Legumina opened the 2022 campaign at High-A Cedar Rapids but spent most of the season with Double-A Wichita. The 25-year-old made 30 appearances (13 starts) at Double-A and had a 4.93 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 76:32 K:BB in 73 innings.

  • Twins' Matt Canterino: Joins 40-man roster

    Canterino (elbow) was added to the Twins' 40-man roster Tuesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Canterino underwent Tommy John surgery in August, but the Twins still opted to protect him from potentially being selected in the upcoming Rule 5 draft. The 25-year-old had a 1.83 ERA across 34.1 innings for Double-A Wichita prior to the injury but will now be sidelined for 2023 while he rehabs from the procedure.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Jumps to 40-man roster

    Julien was added to Minnesota's 40-man roster Tuesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Julien spent the 2022 campaign with Double-A Wichita and cemented his status as one of Minnesota's top prospects with a .303/.443/.491 slash line, 17 home runs and 19 steals in 114 games. The 23-year-old posted an incredible 19.7 percent walk rate and should move to Triple-A St. Paul this coming year, and he could also sniff the majors.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Avoids arbitration

    Garlick (wrist) signed a one-year, $750,000 deal with the Twins on Monday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    After battling through an injury-filled season in 2022, Garlick will run it back for his third season with the Twins in 2023. His .233/.284/.433 slash line from last year may not jump off the page at first glance, but he's proven himself to be effective against left-handed pitching, as his OPS jumps up to .805 against southpaws.

  • Twins' Sonny Gray: Sticking in Minnesota for '23

    Minnesota exercised Gray's (hamstring) $12.5 million club option for 2023 on Sunday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    Gray finished the 2022 season on the injured list, but he put together a solid campaign, posting a 3.08 ERA and 1.13 WHIP with a 117:36 K:BB across 119.2 frames. He'll serve as the Twins' top rotation arm heading into 2023, barring any major additions this winter.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Having strong AFL campaign

    Martin is hitting .380 with a .971 OPS, a home run and 10 stolen bases in 19 games in the Arizona Fall League.

    The fifth overall pick in 2020 by Toronto was the key return in the Jose Berrios trade and seen by many as one of the top hitting prospects in the majors when traded to the Twins in 2021. However, he took huge step back in 2022 as he hit just .235/.362/.304 at Double-A. His struggles may have been due to an injury, as he missed five weeks in July and August due to a torn UCL in his left (non-throwing) elbow, per MLB.com. However, he was struggling even before the injury, especially to produce power. He did have 34 stolen bases, which could make him a fantasy asset with even modest power. Martin has strong on-base skills (12.3 percent walk rate), so his AFL performance could prove his 2022 season was an aberration.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Breaks out in 2022

    Julien wrapped up the 2022 season with a .300/.441/.490 slash line, 17 homers, 19 steals and a 98:125 BB:K across 113 contests, all for Double-A Wichita.

    He's gone on to play 10 games in the Arizona Fall League thus far, slashing .363/.544/.636 with a pair of homers, a steal and a 13:10 BB:K. All in all, this has been a spectacular breakout year for Julien, who flew under the radar in 2021 as an over-aged prospect in Single-A and High-A despite putting up a .914 OPS with 18 homers and 34 swipes. Few are sleeping on the 23-year-old now, after he posted one of the most remarkable walk rates you'll ever see from a prospect (19.3 percent) alongside his power and speed contributions. If Julien keeps doing his thing in Triple-A in 2023, it's hard to see how he doesn't find his way to the big leagues by midseason.
