Top Twins News

  • Twins' Max Kepler: Sitting vs. lefty

    Kepler isn't in Tuesday's starting lineup against the Red Sox, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Kepler will take a seat with David Price slated to take the mound for Boston. Marwin Gonzalez is set to man right field and bat sixth in Kepler's stead.

  • Twins' Ehire Adrianza: Hits IL with abdominal issues

    Adrianza was placed on the injured list Tuesday with abdominal issues.

    The utility man will be out at least until June 27 with this vague injury. Luis Arraez was recalled from Triple-A to take his spot on the roster.

  • Twins' Luis Arraez: Recalled Tuesday

    Arraez was recalled from Triple-A Rochester prior to Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.

    Ehire Adrianza was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Arraez has been a hitting machine in the minors and majors this season, but he will likely only serve as a part-time player while Adrianza is on the shelf. We could see him competing to be the Twins' starting second baseman in spring training next year, so he is worth stashing in dynasty leagues.

  • Twins' Ian Krol: Inks minors pact with Twins

    Krol signed a minor-league contract with the Twins and has been assigned to Triple-A Rochester.

    The 28-year-old lefty logged a 5.33 ERA and 1.54 WHIP in 25.1 innings of relief at Triple-A in the Reds organization earlier this season. He should serve as organizational bullpen depth for Minnesota.

  • Twins' Byron Buxton: Lands on injured list

    Buxton (wrist) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

    Buxton hadn't played since getting hit by a pitch Friday against the Royals. The issue had been referred to as a bruise, and there haven't been reports of an updated diagnosis, so it appears as though the bruise was significant enough to warrant him missing at least another week. The move was made retroactive to Saturday, so he's eligible to return as soon as next Tuesday. Jake Cave was recalled in a corresponding move.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Promoted to big leagues

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

    Cave got off to a shaky start at the dish in the major leagues this season, slashing .220/.347/.268 over 18 games, but he'll get another shot in Minnesota after Byron Buxton was placed on the 10-day injured list with a wrist issue. Expect Cave to see his fair share of starts in center field until Buxton returns.

  • Twins' Jose Berrios: Strikes out 10 in loss

    Berrios (8-3) gave up one run on five hits and no walks while striking out 10 through eight innings, taking the loss against the Red Sox on Monday.

    Berrios allowed three straight hits to start the game to allow his only run, but proceeded to dominate the rest of his outing with 19 swinging strikes. The 25-year old continued his consistency with his fifth straight quality start and has a 1.85 ERA in that span. Berrios will look to keep rolling in his next start Saturday against the Royals at Kauffman Stadium.

  • Twins' Trevor Hildenberger: On minor-league IL

    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' Mitch Garver: Out again Monday

    Garver is not in the lineup Monday against the Red Sox, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

    Garver will head to the bench for a second straight game as Jason Castro picks up another start behind the dish in his place Monday. In 10 appearances since returning from the IL, Garver is 10-for-37 (.270) with two homers and nine RBI.

  • Twins' Byron Buxton: Still out Monday

    Buxton (wrist) is not in the lineup Monday against the Red Sox, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

    Buxton will remain on the bench for a third straight game as he continues to nurse a wrist injury he picked up after getting hit by a pitch Friday. Max Kepler is once again covering center field in his stead, with Marwin Gonzalez starting in right.

  • Twins' Max Kepler: Knocks four hits

    Kepler went 4-for-6 with a pair of doubles, two RBI and a run scored in Sunday's 8-6 loss to the Royals.

    Kepler was terrific out of the leadoff spot as he has been for most of 2019. It was his second four-hit contest in June alone. The 26-year-old outfielder continues his breakout season with a .917 OPS and 17 homers.

  • Twins' Nelson Cruz: Drives in three runs

    Cruz went 2-for-5 with a home run, a double, three RBI and a walk in Sunday's 8-6 loss to Kansas City.

    Cruz launched a solo shot in the seventh inning before driving a two-run double in the eighth. The 38-year-old slugger is showing no signs of slowing down with six homers already in June. For the season, he owns a tremendous .941 OPS with 13 long balls and 34 RBI.

  • Twins' Martin Perez: Yields five runs in loss

    Perez (7-3) coughed up five runs (four earned) on six hits and a walk in 6.2 innings Sunday, striking out seven and taking the loss against the Royals.

    Perez was in trouble early, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk in the second inning alone. He settled in, throwing four straight perfect frames after that before another bumpy stretch in the seventh. He's now given up at least four runs in three of his last four outings, raising his season ERA from 2.95 to 4.09 during that span. He'll look for redemption in Kansas City on Friday.
