Twins' Michael Pineda: Signs two-year deal with Twins
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Pineda (elbow) signed a two-year deal with the Twins on Wednesday.

The 28-year-old righty underwent Tommy John surgery on July 18, and figures to miss most, if not all of the 2018 season. This gives him some short-term security and a chance to hit the market again after hopefully reestablishing his value in 2019, while it give the Twins an affordable, high-upside starter for 2019. Pineda has generated worse run-prevention metrics than the fielding-independent numbers suggest, as his career 3.60 FIP is quite a bit lower than his career 4.05 ERA. While he hasn't posted an ERA under 4.30 since 2014, he typically strikes out around a batter per inning, and in 2016 he notched 207 strikeouts in 175.2 innings, so there is plenty of long-term upside for dynasty-league owners.

Twins' Trevor May: Stretching out as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

General manager Thad Levine said the Twins plan to stretch May (elbow) out as a starter, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

May missed all of 2017 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March, though he resumed throwing in August and has progressed to making up to 75 throws from around 105 feet. While May isn't expected to be ready for the start of the season, the Twins are hoping he'll be ready to rejoin their rotation in mid-May.

Twins' Miguel Sano: Doing well post-surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sano (shin) is continuing his rehab in Florida, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Sano is about four weeks into his initial eight-week recovery timeframe, but he's apparently doing well. He's expected to continue ramping up his activity before heading to the Dominican Republic to work with Fernando Tatis. Barring any setbacks, Sano should be back to full health well ahead of spring training.

Twins' Nick Burdi: Throws from 80 feet
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Burdi (elbow) made 75 throws from 80 feet Monday as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery in late May, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

While this is excellent news for the power reliever, more impactful news could come Thursday, as Burdi was left off the Twins' 40-man roster and is generating a lot of buzz leading up to this week's Rule 5 draft. He has a huge fastball and was seen as a potential closer prior to tearing his UCL. His shaky command and the risk associated with this injury would be two marks against him in advance of the Rule 5 draft, but he will still likely get selected and change organizations.

Twins' Yunior Severino: Will head to Minnesota
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Severino signed a $2.5 million contract with the Twins on Friday, pending a physical, Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com reports.

One of the 12 prospects granted free agency as part of the Braves' sanctions for violating international signing guidelines, Severino has to be considered one of the biggest losses for Atlanta. The 18-year-old was ranked as the No. 8 international prospect by Baseball America at the time of his agreement with Atlanta last summer, and will now become a part of the Twins' organization following one last workout in front of scouts earlier this week. In the Gulf Coast League last season, Severino slashed .286/.345/.444 with three home runs, 19 extra-base hits and 27 RBI in 48 games. Although he's not going to see the majors any time soon, he projects to be a key part of the future in Minnesota.
