Saturday On The Twins Minor League Practice Fields

FT. MYERS – As you are preparing to watch the Minnesota Twins take on the Philadelphia Phillies from Hammond Stadium on Fox Sports North today, here are some minor league notes from my first day in Ft. Myers.

After arriving in Ft. Myers late on Friday night (or early Saturday morning), it was nice to be able to spend a full day at the Twins minor league facilities. They practiced for a couple of hours before playing games. Today, here is a quick download of minor league notes.

The Rochester and Chattanooga rosters traveled to Port Charlotte to take on the AAA and AA affiliates of the Rays. At the Twins facilities, the Ft. Myers and Cedar Rapids faced off against the High-A and Low-A rosters of the Rays. Here are my observations and some conversations with people around.


Report From The Fort: Time For Jose Berrios To Take Control

FT. MYERS – Around this time last year, it was reasonable to feel a little alarmed about Jose Berrios.

Following a tumultuous rookie campaign, the brightest hope for Minnesota's rotation was once again struggling to command his dazzling repertoire. His spring ended with a thud when he started for Rochester in an exhibition against the big-league club on March 31st and allowed five walks with an HBP in just 2 1/3 innings.

But of course, Berrios was still only 22 – a fact easily forgotten due to his meteoric rise through the minors. His growth over the past 12 months has been clearly on display this spring.

Sire of Fort Myers Update and Spring Highlights

The Twins will play their final game in Fort Myers a week from today. Can you believe it? The regular season is right around the corner, which also means we’re heading into the final leg of competition for Sire of Fort Myers.


Nightly Wrap: Vargas Out & Twins Make A Trade

FT. MYERS – In his latest update from Twins spring training, Nick breaks down Minnesota's trade for a Yankees outfielder, as well as the resulting Kennys Vargas DFA. Plus, notes on Jorge Polanco's defensive struggles, Jose Berrios' fourth spring start, Miguel Sano's knee injury and more. Listen here!


Twins DFA Kennys Vargas, Acquire OF Cave From Yankees

FT. MYERS – It was only a matter of time until the Minnesota Twins moved on from Kennys Vargas, whose redundancy following the Logan Morrison acquisition combined with a lack of remaining options essentially punched his ticket off the 40-man roster.

So it was no surprise to see the Twins announce on Friday they'd designated the slugger for assignment. It was, however, a bit surprising that the move made room for a newly acquired player: 25-year-old outfielder Jake Cave, who comes over from the Yankees organization.


Twins 2018 Position Analysis: Left Field

One of the most pleasant surprises for the 2017 Minnesota Twins literally came out of left field.

With newfound discipline at the plate, Eddie Rosario turned the corner and went from frustrating underachiever to fearsome slugger.

But with Rosario slowed by injury this spring, the depth behind him could quickly come into play.


Nightly Wrap: Opening Day Starter, Gibby K & Rosario's Return

FT. MYERS – Who will be the starter on Opening Day for the Twins, now just two weeks away? What did Kyle Gibson have to say about his spring up to this point? How did Eddie Rosario look in his return to the lineup? Listen here and find out.


Report From The Fort: Can Confidence Carry Garver To Success?

FT. MYERS – Carl Lewis once said that if you don't have confidence, you'll always find a way not to win.

As the Twins try to finally work Mitch Garver into the fold as a big-league catcher, they can be confident they've at least checked that box in the quest to set him up for success.


A Breakout or Breakthrough for Sano

Much of the talk leading up to the 2018 Major League Baseball season regarding the Minnesota Twins has focused around potential breakout season for players like Byron Buxton, Max Kepler, or even Jorge Polanco. Despite making headlines for some negative reasons this offseason, Miguel Sano may actually be the one deserving of the biggest breakthrough talk. While he’s coming off an All-Star appearance, the numbers suggest we may have not seen anything yet.

FT. MYERS – Nick reports on the battle for the final bullpen spot, Tyler Duffey's trouble with the change, Byron Buxton's run at history, and a whole lot more. Listen here!
