SEA 2, MIN 1: Paxton Outduels Romero

Fernando Romero was excellent once again, but he was dealt his first loss in five starts because the Mariners took advantage of their opportunities. Oh, and having James Paxton on the mound didn’t hurt, either. Max Kepler had a great game, but Paxton and the rest of the M’s staff hed the lineup in check.

Twins Minor League Report (5/25): Vargas Powers Wings

CEDAR RAPIDS - This report comes to you directly from Cedar Rapids where I will be the next few days. Tomorrow will be a busy day with some interviews and a double header, but it will be a fun day. On this night, Kennys Vargas and newcomer Chris Carter provided some power for the Red Wings. Chattanooga got a strong start, and so did the Kernels. There was a near cycle in Cedar Rapids too.

Why Isn't Mitch Garver Playing More?

Jason Castro recently became the latest in a series of injuries and suspension which have contributed to a pedestrian start to the 2018 season for the Minnesota Twins. Castro was struggling offensively, his slow start already stimulating debate around how much playing time Mitch Garver should have.

Ready To Move Up

As Memorial Day approaches, it’s noteworthy the the first halves of the Kernels, Miracle and Lookouts seasons are coming to an end. Soon, we’ll hear which players are going to play in the All Star game. Often, that milestone also means that it is promotion time for some of the prospects. Today, I’ll mention six Twins minor leaguers that I think are ready for the next level.

Game Thread: Twins @ Mariners, 5/25 @ 9:10pm CT

The Twins kick off a 3-game series in Seattle tonight and I’m going to be serious for once in my life.

I’d like everyone’s attention as I ask for assistance and cooperation from all in order to achieve an objective together.

The Objective: Game threads will be a sanctuary from unmistakable hard-nosed negativity.

Twins Minor League Report (5/24): Brent Rooker Jacks Two Dingers

Brent Rooker hit two homers for Chattanooga, Nick Gordon cracked a couple of doubles for Rochester and neither Stephen Gonsalves nor Blayne Enlow gave up an earned run in their starts. Keep reading for more information on the night that was across the minor league system

Bartolo, the Twins, and a Guy Named Phil

The year was 1973 and the Dominican Public had already become a breeding ground for baseball players. With the country producing multiple success stories, yet another chapter being written was hardly a far-fetched idea. Fast forward to May 24, 2018 however, and baseball fans have been blessed with 45 years of Bartolo Colon.

Did Minnesota Just Summon the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come?

In the Charles Dickens classic, A Christmas Carol, Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by three ghosts.

The last of these phantoms, the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, is most fearsome of all. Why? Because it represents what the future holds for Scrooge if he does not change his ways.

Scrooge awakens from this haunting experience a new man, steered back toward a righteous path by the vision of a dire future.

I'm not saying the Twins traded for Chris Carter to make a similar impression on Miguel Sano.

I'm only saying it'd make a lot of sense.

Twins Minor League Report (5/23): Debuts and Longballs

Lots of action took place on the farm today. Miguel Sano homered for the second straight day during his rehab assignment and Ervin Santana began to work his way back up to the Twins. Specifically among minor leaguers though, Nick Gordon debuted at Triple-A, and Jacob Pearson made his stamp on the Twins organization. There's a lot to dive into here, so let's get started.

Will Kernels Offense Suffer As Prospects Move Up?

When this season was in its infancy, I had a lot of high expectations for the 2018 Cedar Rapids Kernels. I was not alone, of course, since the Kernels’ Opening Day roster was filled with big-bonus position players, highlighted by 2017’s first-overall draft pick, Royce Lewis, and the Twins’ 2016 first-round pick, Alex Kirilloff.

DET 4, MIN 1: Niko’s Revenge

Former Twin Niko Goodrum hit a two-run homer and the Twins' offense couldn’t muster much of anything after the first inning. On the plus side, Kyle Gibson delivered a quality start, Eddie Rosario had a great game and the Twins still won the series against the Tigers ... but it was still a frustrating finish to the homestand.

Twins Daily Roundtable: Top Prospect Timelines

Twins Daily Roundtable is a new weekly series. As part of this series, a question will be posed to the site’s writers and they will respond in 200 words or less. This will give readers an opportunity to see multiple points of view and then add their own point of view in the comments section.

Top prospects are a fickle bunch. For every Miguel Sano and Byron Buxton, there is an Adam Johnson and a BJ Garbe. The truth is that it takes a lot for a prospect to make it to the major leagues. Big league rosters are limited and teams have a lot to consider. More players miss out on their big league dream than ever find success.

Twins fans have seen top pitching prospect Fernando Romero make his much anticipated debut this season. In fact, last week’s roundtable discussion looked into his rotation spot after the return of Ervin Santana. Now fans might be wondering when the next big prospects will be on their way.

This week’s roundtable question is “What’s the timeline for the organization’s top prospects?”
