Twins Minor League Relief Pitcher of the Month - May 2015

Relief pitchers seem to go under the radar when they do their jobs well. On the occasions when they don’t do their job well, then they get noticed. Here at Twins Daily, we want to make sure that the relief pitchers get some positive recognition. Instead of just doing a Minor League Pitcher of the Month, we separate the starters and the relievers because many relievers deserve to be noticed for positive reasons.

Twins Draft Preview: Kyle Tucker

As far as adding position players to their system, the Minnesota Twins could do a lot worse than high school outfielder Kyle Tucker. The six-foot-five outfielder from Hillsborough County outside of Tampa -- a sun-soaked and highly competitive baseball region -- has all the projectability in the world including an advanced approach at the plate. His plus-hit tool and ability to mash could see him become the next Twins’ first-round draft pick.

That is, unless someone else gets to him first.

Dear Negative Twins Fan, Get Over Yourself

Dear Negative Twins Fan,

I understand keeping a level head about things, a wait-and-see approach. I understand looking at advanced stats which say these first-place Twins will probably regress to the mean.But I don’t understand reacting to an incredible 20-win month with this attitude:

“The losing streak’s coming. Just you wait. They’ll blow it, and the Pohlads will sell them if they get good anyway.”

C’mon, dude. Just enjoy the moment.

Twins Minor League Report (6/1): Gonsalves Flirts With No-No, Then Promoted

With a rainout in Boston and the Red Wings having a scheduled off-day, the Twins' two highest clubs didn't take the field on Monday night. There wasn't much to be excited about down on the farm with the teams that did take the field.

Two offenses struggled to score runs and it took a nearly perfect pitching performance for the other affiliate to come out victorious. Luckily, most of the team's affiliates are still holding on to division leads as the calendar turns to June.

Here's the action from down on the pond.

Twins vs Yankees (Part 1): The Rise Of The Damn Yankees

The Minnesota Twins’ dislike of the Yankees predates the Minnesota Twins. That’s because the Twins team that moved to Minnesota in 1961 was the Washington Senators franchise, and the Senators consternation with the Bronx Bombers goes back at least 80 years. That’s why the musical “Damn Yankees” featured the Senators – their dislike (or jealousy) of New York was legendary.

Twins Draft Preview: 10-round Twins Mock

It was nearly one year ago today that I correctly predicted that the Twins would draft Nick Gordon in the first round of the 2014 draft and Max Murphy in the ninth round. I also suggested that the Twins could look at converting “a gajillion college relievers.” While I was off by a dozen or two on that projection, it was a common theme on the second day of the draft.

While I anticipated probably getting each one of my picks wrong, I feel pretty good about getting two right and having the theme correct. I feel so good, in fact, that I’m going to give it another shot today.

Twins Minor League Report (5/31): Everybody's In First Place (Almost)

The calendar of the year 2015 is turning to June, and the Minnesota Twins have the best record in the American League.

Wait…what?!

There were few who believed that might be case this season, except maybe Terry Ryan, but it’s true and this team has certainly been fun to watch again!

Twins Minor League Report (5/30): Saturday In The Parks

The Twins evened their series with the Blue Jays with a nice 3-2 win. All four affiliates played on Saturday as well. There were some good games. Two of the four games finished in walk-off fashion. A big inning late in the game helped one of the affiliates to a win. Chih-Wei Hu returned to the mound for Ft. Myers.

Possibility Of A Six-Man Rotation For The Twins

Earlier this week, it was announced that the Mets would start using a six-man rotation. Their plan is to stick with having an extra starter in the rotation through early-to-mid-August. New York's reasoning behind the move is to shave innings totals without the need to shut down pitchers before the end of the season.
