Twins Minor League Report (7/27): Stephen Gonsalves Debuts In Mwl

The Minnesota Twins were able to avoid the brutal 4-game sweep at home courtesy of their fellow AL Central bottom dwellers, the Chicago White Sox, after a Sam Fuld single in the seventh inning gave them just enough of a cushion for the eventual 4-3 victory. Glen Perkins made it interesting in the ninth, but struck out two to pick up his 25th save of the year.

In the minors, a grand slam brought one affiliate a victory, another went into extra innings, and a top pitching prospect made his Midwest League debut.

Monday Morning Madness: July 28, 2014

Who won the most recent game? Those of us with a healthy recency bias are pretty high on the Twins right now. Everyone else? Not so much.

Logan Darnell...sort of
Congratulations to Darnell for making his first MLB start on Saturday. Darnell, Yohan Pino and Kris Johnson have all deserved their starts. That said, can we please have Trevor May and Alex Meyer now?

About Twins Daily

Twins Daily is not an online newspaper.

I know – it sure looks like one. That’s how we fool you. That’s how we draw you closer to the trap. But our stories are just the surface of the water, and if have the gumption to reach out, you’ll find out what’s just under the surface.

Twins Minor League Report (July 26): Pitching Shutouts

Minnesota Twins Minor League Report for July 26, 2014. The Twins had yet another rough one with the White Sox. Three Twins pitching prospects had impressive, shutout performances. There was a walk-off win for one of the affiliates, and another needed 11 innings to win.

Welcome to the new Twins Daily!

It has been two long months of project outlines, software testing, design, development, testing, and finally… migration.

Video: Minnesota Baseball History

Over All-Star weekend, the local SABR chapter had a series of panels on Minnesota baseball at Fan Fest. I was on one that covered the history of baseball in Minnesota, starting with the Nininger Nine in 1857 (before statehood) and going through the Twins.

Twins Minor League Report (7/25): Friday Night Lights

Another game, another frustrating loss for the Twins. Kevin Correia's trade value dropped in half, though the number wasn't all that high to begin with. Jose Abreu, Alexei Ramirez and Tyler Flowers all homered for the White Sox. Oswaldo Arcia and Josh Willingham homered for the Twins. The Twins have lost the first two games of the series and get to face Chris Sale on Saturday.

There were plenty of story lines throughout the Twins minor league affiliates on Friday night including a AAA debut, another strong starting performance in Ft. Myers and another Max Murphy home run. The Kernels showed off some power in a one-run game in Kentucky, and the Miracle also played a one-run game. Of course, there were again several more transactions including the addition of another player from the independent leagues.

Twins Daily will be down Saturday morning, 7/26

Tomorrow morning, Twins Daily is going under the knife and receiving the largest update in its history. There will be new features, old features, shiny features, and half-baked features (despite our rigorous attempts to QA the new site for the past several weeks).

Alex Meyer's Time is Here

On Wednesday of this past week, Twins pitching prospect Alex Meyer dismantled the Rays’ Triple-A affiliate Durham Bulls, striking out eight over six innings of work while not allowing either a walk or a run.

With Phil Hughes apparently sidelined for some time after absorbing an Adam Dunn projectile missile in combination with the inconsistent performance from the starting five that now consists of non-prospect arms, it is hard not to ask “When is it Meyer’s time?”

Twins Minor League Report (7/24): Puerto Rican Prospects Prosper

It sure was an action-packed day in the Twins organization, on and off the field. The Twins Puerto Rican Futures contingent had another big day. Trevor May got back on the mound for the Red Wings, and let's just say he didn't give up a hit. A couple of the affiliates didn't hit much, but a couple top prospects returned to the field. There was even a walk-off win in the system. The Twins made what could be the first of several trades over the next five days.

The Twins and White Sox started a four game series. A Danny Santana two-run ninth inning home run kept the team from being shut out. They lost 5-2. Phil Hughes left the game early after being hit on the shin with a line drive. The team's play again tonight at 7:10 at Target Field with a John Danks/Kevin Correia matchup!
