Top Twins News

  • Twins' Wynston Sawyer: Re-ups with Minnesota

    Sawyer inked a minor-league deal with the Twins on Friday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Sawyer will continue to serve as organizational catching depth for Minnesota heading into the 2019 season. The 27-year-old spent most of last season with Triple-A Rochester but saw action in only 23 games, hitting .318/.446/.394 with one home run and 11 RBI.

  • Twins' Ryne Harper: Returns to Twins

    Harper agreed to a minor-league deal with Minnesota on Friday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Harper spent the 2018 season in the Twins' organization, splitting time between the Double-A and Triple-A levels. He logged a cumulative 3.60 ERA and 1.09 WHIP with an 86:10 K:BB across 65 innings of relief, though his numbers took a decent-sized dip during his outings with Triple-A Rochester. Don't expect to see the 29-year-old up in the majors barring a rash of injuries.

  • Twins' Zack Weiss: Heads to Minnesota

    Weiss signed a minor-league deal with the Twins on Friday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Weiss was released by Cincinnati in early September after spending the past six years in the organization. He only made one big-league appearance during that time -- in April of 2018 -- during which he gave up four earned runs on two hits (two home runs) and two walks while failing to record an out. Weiss spent a majority of this past season at Triple-A, and he will likely report to Minnesota's Triple-A club this coming spring.

  • Twins' Preston Guilmet: Agrees to deal with Twins

    Guilmet signed a minor-league contract with Minnesota on Friday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Guilmet appeared in eight major-league games split between St. Louis and Toronto this past season. His 11.70 ERA and 2.20 WHIP across 10 innings of relief justified the Blue Jays' decision to designate the right-hander for assignment, and he spent the rest of the year at the Triple-A level. Guilmet will serve as additional depth for the Twins' bullpen in 2019.

  • Twins' Randy Cesar: Signs with Minnesota

    Cesar inked a minor-league deal with the Twins on Friday, Brandon Warne of Zone Coverage reports.

    Cesar spent the 2018 season at the Double-A level in the Astros' system, hitting .296/.348/.428 with 10 home runs and 62 RBI in 116 games. The 23-year-old wound up breaking a 49-year-old Texas League record with a 42-game hit streak, during which he went 66-for-169 (.391 average) with 30 RBI in almost two months of action. The third baseman will provide some extra infield depth in Minnesota's organization moving forward.

  • 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.
