Twins Minor League Report (6/17): Kirilloff Doubles Twice

Life as a minor league player can be tough. Few players ever get to live out their dream as a regular player at the big league level. For every player who realizes their dream, another player is forced to be released or find another organization to keep his dream alive.

Right-handed pitcher Zack Jones was released from the Twins organization on Sunday. The 27-year old was drafted by the organization in the fourth round of the 2012 MLB Draft. He pitched seven years in the minor leagues and reached Triple-A once in 2016. This actually came in the Brewers organization after being taken by Milwaukee in the Rule 5 Draft.

This year with the Lookouts he had a 2.49 ERA in 25.1 innings with a 39 to 25 strikeout to walk ratio. He was over 2.5 years older than the competition in the Southern League.

CLE 4, MIN 1: Lots of Traffic, Just One Run

The Twins racked up 10 hits and added three walks but all that activity on the bases resulted in just one run Sunday afternoon in Cleveland. Jake Odorizzi didn’t have his best performance either, walking four batters in five innings while barely throwing more than half of his pitches for strikes.

Twins Minor League Report (6/16): Offensive Burst In Birmingham

Seven Miracle players played in the Florida State League on Saturday night. Rochester had a near-shutout until late, but Nick Gordon played hero. Cedar Rapids had a near-shutout until late when a former Gophers baseball star played hero. An offensive outburst meant that the Lookouts didn’t need late-inning heroics. In fact, inclement weather meant that there weren’t late innings.

MIN 9, CLE 3: That’s Our Eddie

Eddie Rosario, what can you say? One moment he’s making you clap in excitement, the next he’s making you throw your cap on the ground in disgust. It can be an adventure sometimes, but the guy is always trying to make something happen. He did just that Saturday, carrying the Twins’ offense once again.

Twins Minor League Report (6/15): Blankenhorn Blasts Way To Derby Title

It’s All-Star weekend in the Florida State League, and on Friday night, Miracle infielder Travis Blankenhorn won the home run derby. Cedar Rapids has just two games remaining before the Midwest League All-Star Game, and they prepared by scoring a dozen runs. Unfortunately, offense was less abundant for the Twins top two minor league affiliates on Friday.

MIN 6, CLE 3: Anything is Possible

The Twins offense has been sputtering. Corey Kluber has been dominant. Was there some kind of a Freaky Friday situation that played out in this game or something?

The Twins, who just dropped a series to Detroit, rolled into Cleveland and beat one of the best pitchers in baseball behind a great start from Kyle Gibson. Eddie Rosario had another great game and Brian Dozier slid down in the order and provided a big fly.

Miguel Sano's Struggles

MIguel Sano has been a hot mess at the plate pretty much all season. Statistically, he has had career highs and lows in all the wrong categories warranting the need to push pause on his 2018 season.

The demotion to Fort Myers should give him the opportunity to clean up his swing as well as recuperate from whatever lingering leg injuries have been stifling him. When it comes to his swing, you may be asking yourself what exactly does the big man have to clean up? Let's take a look.

Trying to Get a Reed on Addison

Twins fans were thrilled when they signed Addison Reed this offseason on a two year deal worth approximately $16 million. Given the nature of the free agent relief pitching market in recent years, the Reed signing seemed not only to be a great get for the Twins, but a significant bargain given the deals that Rockies handed out to Bryan Shaw, Greg Holland and Jake McGee. The Twins, it seemed, had obtained a reliable reliever with a proven track record who could take on a high workload of high leverage innings and support Fernando Rodney at the back end of the bullpen.
