MIN 8, CHW 1: Gibby Sizzles Over 7 Solid Innings

All this team does is win. Kyle Gibson was spectacular, completing seven innings for the second time this season, and the lineup stayed hot, scratching across eight more runs. The Twins have now won five straight and 10 of their last 11 games.

Injuries Have Been Huge, Unfortunate Story of Twins Minor League Season

On Saturday morning, the Kernels made official what we started hearing rumblings of on Friday night. Wander Javier was set to join the Kernels. The immensely talented shortstop will make his 2019 debut on Saturday night, and play in his first official games since 2017. He missed 2018 with a non-throwing shoulder injury, and he hurt his quad in a big league spring training game.

However, on Saturday, the Twins announced some major injuries in the Twins minor leagues, and frankly, that has been an unfortunately large story so far this season.

MIN 11, CWS 4: Twins Make Home Run History

José Berríos scared us a little bit early in the game, but an Eddie Rosario-led offense scored in all of the first five innings to promote a powerful comeback and win the fourth in a row. The Twins hit three home runs on the night, becoming only the second team in MLB history to hit at least 100 home runs in the first 50 games of the season. They also maintain the MLB-best record, at 34-16.

Twins Minor League Report (5/24): 2018 Top Draftees Shine in Rough Night Across the System

We’re a little over a week away from the 2019 MLB Draft. On a night with very little offense across the system, 2018 top picks Trevor Larnach and Ryan Jeffers put together strong performances. Come see what else happened Friday evening.

When the Twins Go Buying ... Who Are They Selling?

As we approach the trade deadline - What? It’s only a little over two months away - there are a number of moves the Twins could and possibly should consider to help enhance their ability to make a deep run into the playoffs.

But before we jump into those names, let’s examine who (or what?) other teams will be asking about. Let’s assume, too, that the Twins will make top-5 prospect Royce Lewis, top-15 prospect Alex Kirilloff and top pitching prospect Brusdar Graterol off limits.

Twins Fan Ready to Overreact to 3-Game Losing Streak

Karl Paulson is enjoying the Twins’ astonishing 2019 as much as anyone. He’s also prepared to lose his damn mind at the first sign of a minor setback.

“I’m going to freak the entire hell out if they lose three in a row,” said Paulson. “If I can buy an actual, physical panic button, I will purchase it and smash it with my fists.”

Twins Minor League Report (5/22): Barnes Baffles in Daytona

It was a busy day throughout the Twins organization. The Twins powered past the Angels to complete a sweep. Pensacola got a big win. Ft Myers got a great start and the offense showed up in the ninth inning to take a nice win. Cedar Rapids has received power from a new, maybe unexpected source and got a late-inning clutch hit to win.

Building for Primetime

By the end of next week, the Minnesota Twins will be more than a third of the way through their 2019 schedule. After completing a dominant sweep in Anaheim, they have the best record and second-best run differential in baseball. Their lead in the AL Central has ballooned to eight games.

We're still a week away from June, but it is not by any means too early to start thinking big.

MIN 16, LAA 7: Twins Slug 8 More Home Runs, Sweep Angels

The Twins hit eight more home runs Thursday afternoon, giving them 98 on the year. Wow. The lineup jumped all over Matt Harvey, scoring eight runs in less than three innings en route to wrapping up the series sweep. Martin Perez improved to 7-1 on the season.

Polanco Proving It for Good

If the Major League Baseball season were to end today Jorge Polanco’s .339 average would land him a batting title in the American League. Through his first 46 games this season he already outdone what projection systems saw from him this season, and he’s proven to be one of the most valuable players in baseball. Twins fans may be wondering what the regression looks like and when it’s coming but take some solace in knowing that this is for real.

Twins Top Pitcher Prospect Brusdar Graterol At Target Field For...??

Note the question mark in that headline (for now) but Brusdar Graterol, the Minnesota Twins' top pitching prospect, posted several pictures to instagram that suggest he's at Target Field today, and they include one in front of a locker with boxes in it and one with him on the field. Twins Daily's preseason #3 prospect, who commands triple-digit heat, has dominated in AA this year as a 20-year-old, posting a 1.89 ERA. Is he being called up or being evaluated for something more ominous?

Baldelli Is More Coddling Millennial Than Field General

Rocco Baldelli is the first millennial manager in baseball. It shows.

He’s soft. Well, at least in terms of the pro sports world. He bends to the will of his team and goes out of his way to be accommodating. I’m not sure if he would chastise a player publicly if his job depended on it.

He also might be the best manager in baseball.
