That's The Ticket: Your AL Wild Card Winner

If the MLB regular season were to end today … we would probably be a little bummed. I mean, it just started. But we would be comforted knowing that the Twins would still be playing, because they enter this series tied for the last AL Wild Card spot. So which game to see? As usual, we’ll break it down scientifically.

Twins Minor League Starting Pitcher Of The Month - April 2015

Yesterday, we looked at the top minor league relievers in the Twins farm system in April. Today, we turn our attention to the starting pitchers who got off to a strong start. There were some really good ones. As you see, there are four Honorable Mentions who posted an ERA below 2.20. That can tell you how well the top four performed during the month.

According To Plan

For the Minnesota Twins, the blueprint this year was simple: stay afloat until midseason and give yourself a chance to make things interesting in the final months.

That's more or less true for every team, but especially so for a Twins club that figures to receive significant reinforcements midway through the summer, in the form of impact prospects and a suspended No. 2 starter.

After a 1-6 start where they looked completely inadequate in every aspect of the game, simply remaining relevant appeared a tall task. But to the credit of rookie manager Paul Molitor and his resilient group, the Twins are back above .500 just three weeks later.

Twins Minor League Report (5/2): Berrios, Buxton, Polanco Lead Lookouts

The Twins reached .500 with their third straight victory over the White Sox on Saturday. Chattanooga also returned to .500 on Saturday with a big win. The Lookouts got big contributions from some major prospects including Jose Berrios, Miguel Sano, Jorge Polanco and Zack Jones. And yes, Byron Buxton’s hot streak continued. In eight games since Doug Mientkiewicz sat him for two games, Buxton is hitting .452 and his batting average has increased from .180 to .284! The Miracle won in dramatic fashion as well!

Warne Notebook: Injuries, Ex-Twins and Affiliates

The Twins announced a pair of roster moves following Friday night’s game. With Ricky Nolasco (right elbow inflammation) and Brian Duensing (right intercostal strain) set to be activated, the Twins needed to make a pair of moves to free up spots.

Josmil Pinto And His Bat

Through the early part of the season, the Minnesota Twins knew they were going to be without the services of Josmil Pinto. After taking three swings to the back of the head in a spring training game, there's no doubt the time lost due to injury was going to cost him a roster spot. After a largely unimpressive 2014, Pinto needed to earn his way on, and time simply ran out. Knowing that it's his bat that will carry him at the next level, the promotion is coming, but what will it look like when it does?

Who Is "This" Mike Pelfrey?

With just one week left to go down in Fort Myers, the Minnesota Twins' spring training campaign was winding down. First year manager Paul Molitor was faced with some tough decisions, and of those, the most important revolved around his starting pitching options. Choosing to send Mike Pelfrey to the bullpen, the veteran pitcher met the decision with anger, criticism, and some angst.

Twins Minor League Report (5/1): Kernels No-Hit, But Buck Is Back

It was an interesting Friday night in the Twins organization. The big league club got a great start from Kyle Gibson to beat the White Sox. The Lookouts’ bats got rolling. The Miracle and Kernels’ bats did not get going. In fact, one of those teams was involved in a no-hitter. As important to the Twins as anything, Byron Buxton remained on fire, collecting three more hits in the game.

Twins Minor League Report (4/30): The Stars Shine Bright

I just do not understand how baseball works. The Twins got all over perennial Cy Young candidate Chris Sale on Thursday night en route to trouncing the Chicago White Sox 12-2. Sale was out after just three innings and he had given up nine runs, the most in his career. Trevor May gave up just a pair of runs despite scattering ten hits, but couldn't finish the sixth inning.
