Twins Minor League Hitter of the Month - April 2015

Over the weekend, I handed out the “awards” for Twins minor league relief pitcher and starting pitcher of April. Whether coming out of the bullpen or starting the game, the Twins had some minor leaguers put up some very good numbers..

Today, I am going to profile five Twins minor league hitters who had solid Aprils. There were a few strong offensive performances, but in my mind, one stood out above the rest.


Twins Minor League Report (5/4): The Force is Strong with Buxton

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away...

Actually these games happened in our galaxy and they took place tonight but it's still May 4th. The major league version of the Twins was hosting a Star Wars themed night including a Phil Hughes bobblehead with him dressed as a Jedi Knight.

Down on the farm, there was a trio of games with the Twins affiliates facing off against some of the best young players in the galaxy. Would the Rebels be able to come out victorious? Or would the evil Empire reign supreme?

Fire up your light sabers and let's find out.


Now Leading Off For The Kernels: Tanner English

You might not guess it just to look at him, as he patrols center field for the Cedar Rapids Kernels, but there’s a good chance that Tanner English is among the most athletic ballplayers on the roster.


Eddie Rosario Promoted To Twins; Arcia Placed On DL

UPDATE: It's now official. The Twins have called up Eddie Rosario and placed Oswaldo Arcia on the 15-day disabled list.

Twins left-handed hitting outfielder Eddie Rosario retweeted a message today congratulating him on his promotion to the Minnesota Twins. While no announcement has been made, it seems likely that Rosario would be called up to replace corner outfielder Oswaldo Arcia, who needed to leave yesterday’s game with a right hip irritation.

Here are some Things to Think About!!!


That's The Ticket: Your AL Wild Card Winner

If the MLB regular season were to end today … we would probably be a little bummed. I mean, it just started. But we would be comforted knowing that the Twins would still be playing, because they enter this series tied for the last AL Wild Card spot. So which game to see? As usual, we’ll break it down scientifically.


Twins Minor League Starting Pitcher Of The Month - April 2015

Yesterday, we looked at the top minor league relievers in the Twins farm system in April. Today, we turn our attention to the starting pitchers who got off to a strong start. There were some really good ones. As you see, there are four honorable mentions who posted an ERA below 2.20. That can tell you how well the top four performed during the month.


Episode 191: Above .500!

Aaron and John talk about the Twins clawing their way above .500 after a brutal start, Ricky Nolasco's return and Tommy Milone's departure, Ron Gardenhire looking for a job and the White Sox possibly having an opening, good Mike Pelfrey going away quickly, Byron Buxton catching fire at Double-A, and what to do with Tim Stauffer and Lester Oliveros.

According To Plan

For the Minnesota Twins, the blueprint this year was simple: stay afloat until midseason and give yourself a chance to make things interesting in the final months.

That's more or less true for every team, but especially so for a Twins club that figures to receive significant reinforcements midway through the summer, in the form of impact prospects and a suspended No. 2 starter.

After a 1-6 start where they looked completely inadequate in every aspect of the game, simply remaining relevant appeared a tall task. But to the credit of rookie manager Paul Molitor and his resilient group, the Twins are back above .500 just three weeks later.


Twins Minor League Report (5/3): Fireworks In Chattanooga

A former first-round pick delivered a walk-off victory in Chattanooga on Sunday afternoon, in a game where both teams combined for thirty-hits and twenty-seven runs to provide the most entertaining game of the year. Elsewhere, there were three quality starts from starting pitchers, and standout games from several hitters.

Twins Minor League Report (5/2): Berrios, Buxton, Polanco Lead Lookouts

The Twins reached .500 with their third straight victory over the White Sox on Saturday. Chattanooga also returned to .500 on Saturday with a big win. The Lookouts got big contributions from some major prospects including Jose Berrios, Miguel Sano, Jorge Polanco and Zack Jones. And yes, Byron Buxton’s hot streak continued. In eight games since Doug Mientkiewicz sat him for two games, Buxton is hitting .452 and his batting average has increased from .180 to .284! The Miracle won in dramatic fashion as well!
