Minnesota’s Game 3 Starting Pitching Options in the Playoffs

The Twins all but locked up a playoff spot over the weekend after sweeping a doubleheader from Cleveland on Saturday. Now fans can start looking ahead to the playoffs and wondering how the club will fare against some of the other top squads in the American League. With Michael Pineda’s recent suspension, there are plenty of questions about how the Twins will use their starting pitchers in the weeks ahead.

Beyond Jose Berrios and Jake Odorizzi, who would start for the Twins in the ALDS Game 3?


Twins Game Recap (9/16): Berrios tosses a strong 7.1 innings

After a big series win in Cleveland, the Twins welcomed the White Sox to town Monday night. The lineup continued to get healthy as Marwin Gonzalez returned to the lineup and Jose Berrios looked good again as the Twins won 5-3.


Gleeman & The Geek, Ep 444: In the Driver's Seat

Aaron and John talk about the Twins' big series win in Cleveland, losing Michael Pineda and Byron Buxton for the season, Brusdar Graterol getting loose, Miguel Sano's knockout blow, and the latest on the Twins' many injured hitters. You can listen by downloading us from iTunes, Spotify, Stitcher, iHeartRadio or find it at GleemanAndTheGeek.com. Or just click this link.


Leading Off Podcast With Matt & Cooper: Movin' Me Down the Central

Matt and Cooper of Twins Daily discuss the dwindling AL Central race, the injury report for a number of players, and talk about the state of a potential playoff bullpen and regular season bullpen. Give it a listen for those topics and much more.


Series Preview: Southside Special

After what was arguably the most impactful series of the year thus far, the Minnesota Twins have now put the AL Central Division on ice. With a magic number at nine, and 13 games left against the divisional doldrums, all eyes are on October. The first opponent of the final homestand in 2019 is none other than the Chicago White Sox. Doubling up on them thus far, Rocco Baldelli’s club gets their final three cracks at Rick Renteria’s squad.


Week in Review: Weathering the Storm

The Minnesota Twins battled through a severely shorthanded series against Washington, then dealt with a decidedly inconvenient rainout on Friday night in Cleveland that left them leaning hard on their bullpen for a critical Saturday doubleheader.

Rather than back down in these tough circumstances, the Twins stepped up in a big way to essentially put the AL Central on ice with two weeks left to go.


Twins Game Recap (9/15): Bad Defense Costs Twins in Series Finale

The Twins lost the series finale to the Indians 7-5 after taking both games of the doubleheader the day before. Leaving Cleveland with a 4.5-game lead in the division was the goal and that is exactly what was done. In a game with Randy Dobnak starting, Kyle Gibson coming from the bullpen and a better lineup sitting on the bench, the Twins did a fine job.


Who is the Twins Team MVP?

2019 has been a bit of a Hollywood season for the Minnesota Twins. After finishing 2018 with a record below .500, and losing a player who has been the franchise’s cornerstone for the last 15 years, Joe Mauer, expectations were tempered heading into the season. Then, from almost the moment the season got underway, it was obvious that this Twins team was something special. However, unlike many great teams, the Twins don’t really have a clear-cut guy who is leading the charge for them night in and night out, but rather they feast on the fact that they can get production from seemingly anywhere. So, that begs the question, who is the Twins MVP for 2019?


Twins Game Recap (9/14): Sano Grand Slam Overcomes Rocky Start for Win

The second contest of Saturday's doubleheader provided another bullpen game, but that is about where the similarities ended. Things didn’t look to be going the Twins way early, but a five-run eighth inning ensured, and the Twins secured, the double-header sweep, beating Cleveland 9-5.


Suspension Shouldn’t Factor into Potential Pineda Reunion

Michael Pineda's current contract with the Twins will end with him under suspension. So his comeback season was tainted and this is the end of the story for him in Minnesota, right? Wrong. He's among the best free agent starting pitchers and this will be a Twins team thirsty for rotation help.


Twins Game Recap (9/14): Bullpen, Polanco Move the Needle in Win

The Twins defeated the Indians 2-0 in the first game of their doubleheader Saturday. Devin Smeltzer set the tone with three scoreless innings and the rest of the bullpen continued to shut out Cleveland. Jorge Polanco provided the big blow, hitting a two-run homer in the third inning.


Get to Know Jorge Alcala

Minnesota called up Jorge Alcala on Saturday to help with the homestretch of the season. A two-game day on Saturday means the club will need as many pitchers as possible, especially after using Jake Odorizzi in a cancelled game on Friday. Alcala came to the Twins as part of the Ryan Pressly trade and he provides a unique option for the Twins over the next couple weeks.
