TB 19, MIN 6: This Never Happened

You ever have a day so bad you’d just like to permanently erase it from your memory?

Saturday’s game off to a great start. Jose Berrios had a no-hitter going through three innings. Even when he slipped, the bats stormed back. Minnesota held a 6-4 advantage after six innings.

Then things really went sour.

MIN 11, TB 8: Twins Get a Scare on Friday the 13th, Prevail over Pesky Rays

The Twins aren’t dead yet, but they’ve given themselves very little room for error. They can’t afford to do things like, for example, blow seven-run leads. Well, it’s a good thing they didn’t do exactly that Friday, but things were pretty hairy there for a second.

Twins Minor League Report (7/13): Multi-Hit Games Everywhere (Lewis Promoted)

The Twins Daily Midseason Twins Top 50 Prospect series is complete. Early on Friday, the Top 5 prospects were posted, an exciting group, to be sure. You will notice that our Prospect Summary list has been updated. But, on the field, this was a great night for a lot of hitters. Ten hitters had three hits. There were homers. And there were a couple of strong pitching performances too.

2018 Twins Midseason Top Prospect List: 1-5

Over the past two weeks, we have been counting down our Top 40 Midseason Minnesota Twins Prospect Rankings. There are many different types of prospects. There are young guys with high ceilings with a long ways to get to the big leagues. There are solid prospects who are close to being able to contribute in the big leagues who may not have high ceilings, but they have a high likelihood of reaching the big leagues.

Today, we conclude the series by looking at our choices for the Top 5 Minnesota Twins Prospects and it is a good combination of those things. There is a pitcher who could be in the big leagues for a long time as a mid-rotation starter, debuting soon. There is a young, potential big league shortstop who is one stop from the big leagues but still has question marks surrounding him. There is a very young pitcher with upside as high as we’ve seen in the Twins system in a long time. And there are two really young hitters with huge upsides who are several steps from the big leagues and could still get there relatively quickly.

MIN 5, TB 1: Who’s the Snub?

Tampa Bay’s Blake Snell was considered one of the bigger All-Star snubs this season. Well, if I didn’t know any better, I’d have definitely guessed Kyle Gibson was the starting pitcher in Thursday night’s matchup who was among the best pitchers in the American League this season who was snubbed for the All-Star Game.

The Twins got to Snell, knocking him out after just three innings, while Gibby was dynamite, completing eight frames.

Twins Minor League Report (7/12): Trey Cabbage and Bailey Ober Dominate in Cedar Rapids

Dozier’s Days Numbered, Then What?

Despite sweeping the hapless Baltimore Orioles, and then taking a series from the equally terrible Kansas City Royals, the Minnesota Twins are still trending towards being sellers in 2018. With a couple more weeks before the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, Derek Falvey and Thad Levine are coming down to crunch time in terms of stockpiling assets. Minnesota doesn’t have much in the form of big pieces, Kyle Gibson and Eduardo Escobar potentially chief among those, but arguably the most intriguing name remains Brian Dozier.

Hildenberger Back In Late-Inning Role

Remember during spring training when we were all wondering aloud if we should be worried about Trevor Hildenberger? Or, how about in late April when he wasn’t pitching well, and it was looking as if he might need some time back in Rochester to work things out and find some success again? To his credit, Hildenberger never worried, at least outwardly. He spoke of process and of the work he was putting in. Well, he was right. He’s back to the role of being the Twins top set-up man, and all is right with the world.

Twins Minor League Report (7/11): Elizabethton Stays Hot, While Kernels Stars Pop

Only the Rochester Red Wings were off today across the Minnesota Twins affiliates. Runs were put up in bunches across the lower three levels of the farm, and the long ball continued to be a fun theme across multiple lineups. Wednesday saw a professional first for a 2018 draftee, and Miguel Sano even got in on the action for Fort Myers. Read about all the action below.

2018 Twins Midseason Top Prospect List: 6-10

Well, we finally made it to the Top-10 and it is a Top-10 that looks vastly different than a couple years ago. Of the players written about below, only one was in the Top-10 at the start of the 2017 campaign. Former high ranking players like Tyler Jay and Kohl Stewart have dropped in the rankings, while other top players have graduated from this list.

Many of the players listed below have been acquired during the new front office regime. These are the players who will be most associated with the success or failure of Falvey and Levine. However, only a couple of them project to play at the big league level in 2018 or 2019.

It’s going to be a slow process but there are definitely some names to be excited about.
