Top Twins News

  • Twins' Michael Reed: Claimed by Minnesota

    Reed (back) was claimed off waivers by the Twins on Wednesday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Reed only played in seven big-league games for Atlanta in 2018, going 2-for-7 with one run scored and three strikeouts during his brief opportunity with the club. He spent a majority of the year at the Triple-A level, which is where he'll likely begin the 2019 season within Minnesota's organization. Reed was sidelined for the final month of the 2018 campaign with a lower-back strain but should be fully operation well before spring training.

  • Twins' Gregorio Petit: Off 40-man roster

    Petit was outrighted to Triple-A Rochester on Thursday.

    Petit slashed .246/.313/.279 over 61 at-bats with the Twins this season after signing a minor-league deal last December. The 33-year-old is able to elect free agency and will likely pursue another minor-league deal for next season.

  • Twins' Brent Rooker: Dealing with ankle sprain

    Rooker is sidelined from Arizona Fall League action while recovering from a sprained ankle, Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com reports.

    Per Mayo, the Twins are taking a "wait-and-see approach" to Rooker's setback. The first baseman played in 130 games with Double-A Chattanooga during the regular season, slashing .254/.333/.465 with 22 home runs, 79 RBI and six stolen bases.

  • Twins' Ehire Adrianza: Expected to be ready for Opening Day

    Adrianza is expected to be ready to go by Opening Day after undergoing surgery to repair the labrum in his left shoulder Tuesday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

    Adrianza suffered a tear in his labrum near the beginning of September, though he continued to play through the injury for the remainder of the season before opting to go under the knife. The procedure typically carries a 3-to-4 month recovery timeline; with the start of spring training a little more than four months away, the utility man should be good to go before the start of the season, barring any setbacks. Assuming he's healthy, Adrianza should have an inside track to a spot on the Twins' Opening Day roster as a utility option.

  • Twins' Eddie Rosario: Set for normal offseason

    Rosario (quadriceps) expects to have a normal offseason, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

    Rosario played in just eight games over the final month of the season due to a nagging quadriceps issue, hitting just .219/.219/.406 over that stretch. Fortunately, the outfielder hasn't had any persistent trouble with the injury this offseason, and barring any setbacks, he's expected to enter spring training at full health. Rosario hit .288/.323/.479 with 24 homers and eight steals in 138 games.

  • Twins' Michael Pineda: Progressing well from surgery

    Pineda (knee) is progressing well in his recovery from meniscus surgery, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

    This is encouraging news for Pineda, who opted for surgery after suffering a torn right meniscus at the end of August while rehabbing from Tommy John surgery. At this point, it's unclear if the right-hander will be ready to go by the start of spring training.

  • Twins' Ehire Adrianza: Slated for labrum surgery

    Adrianza will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair the labrum in his left shoulder, Mike Berardino of The Indianapolis Star reports.

    Adrianza first tweaked his shoulder in the Twins' series in Texas that ran from Aug. 31 to Sept. 2, but he proceeded to play through the injury the rest of the way, appearing in 20 of the team's final 26 contests. The procedure should eliminate the discomfort Adrianza endured throughout September, but an official timetable for his recovery won't be known until after surgery is completed. If he's fully healthy by the end of spring training, Adrianza should have an inside track to a spot on the Twins' Opening Day roster as a utility option.

  • Twins' Miguel Sano: Won't face charges after car accident

    Sano (leg) won't face criminal charges after he was involved in a car accident in the Dominican Republic early Sunday that resulted in a police officer suffering a broken leg, ESPN.com reports.

    Reports initially surfaced Sunday suggesting that Sano was arrested as a result of the incident, but Dominican national police concluded that the 25-year-old backed up his pickup truck outside of a nightclub without realizing that the officer was positioned behind his vehicle. According to police colonel Frank Duran Mejia, Sano took the injured officer to the hospital himself and wasn't charged because he didn't abandon the scene of the accident. With the situation surrounding the accident now clarified, it appears Sano will avoid any punishment from Major League Baseball and can turn his focus to rehabbing the left leg injury that limited him to just four appearances in September.
