Twins Minor League Report (8/11): Remember Michael Pineda?

The Twins signed Michael Pineda to a two-year deal in December, and I’ve been constantly forgetting about him ever since. Nothing against Pineda, it’s just really hard to remember a guy who’s recovering from a surgery. But, if his 2018 debut is any indication, Pineda could serve as the baseball version of finding a loose $20 bill in a pair of jeans you’ve had lying around.


MIN 4, DET 3: Austin Homers, Hildy Survives Save Chance

Tyler Austin hit a two-run homer in his Twins debut and Trevor Hildenberger earned the first post-Fernando Rodney save as the Twins squeaked by the Tigers Saturday night. It was certainly an experience, as Hildy gave up two runs, but whatever works, I guess. Maybe he was paying too close attention to Rodney?


Q&A: Offseason Plans, Molitor's Status and Much More

I asked the Twins Daily community for questions earlier this week, today I'm going to take a crack at answering them. I'd also love it to see your answers down in the comments. Let's get things rolling with a question about the offseason ...


Twins Minor League Report (8/10): Miracle Comeback

One of the new Miracle players hit a huge home run in the ninth inning to help the team to a come-from-behind win. Another newcomer fell a double away from a cycle. A 2018 draft pick was a home run from a cycle. And another prospect whose name has graced these minor league reports nearly every day this season had yet another multi-hit game. And a former top pick and top prospect found out that he is heading to the big leagues.


DET 5, MIN 3: Is There Anything Left?

It’s easy to forget just how good Ervin Santana was for the 2017 Minnesota Twins. He was an All-Star, finished fifth in the American League in both ERA and WHIP. He was seventh in Cy Young Award voting. Ervin made his fourth start of this season, and saw his ERA jump to 6.53.


REPORT: Twins to Promote Kohl Stewart for His MLB Debut

Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reported Friday evening that Kohl Stewart has been scratched from his expected start at Triple-A Rochester becuase he's getting the call up to the big leagues. The assumption is that Stewart will be starting Sunday in Detroit in place of Adalberto Mejia, who was recently placed on the DL.


Twins Minor League Report (8/9): Stephen Gonsalves Strikes Out Nine

A couple of close games and a couple of laughers in the system on Thursday night, including a strong start from Stephen Gonsalves and a combined shutout from Elizabethton. Come check out what else happened across the minors.


BREAKING: Twins Trade Rodney To A's

The Minnesota Twins have announced that they have traded RHP Fernando Rodney to the Oakland A's in exchange for RHP Dakota Chalmers.


Process Set to Yield Results for Kepler

Max Kepler has endured a 2018 season that has seen significant highs, as well as some very real lows. Over the course of the year though, it might be easiest to describe some of the tribulations as simple bad luck. While the Minnesota Twins (as well as Max himself) would like to see better production as a whole, the numbers underneath the hood tell us that a new reality probably isn’t that far off.


Across the Meadow Podcast

Since the activity of the trade deadline has died down, there have been a number of changes at both the Major League level and throughout the affiliates. We covered the week in between the deadline and present in Episode 3 of our podcast.


Showdown In St. Paul (Or Last Stand?)

Maybe it is not high noon. There will not be any “This town isn’t big enough for the both of us” speeches. It’s likely that there will not even be anyone dressed in black. However, the four-game set between the St. Paul Saints and Gary Southshore RailCats this weekend will truly be a showdown that could put one team in a dominant position in the North Division of the American Association, while leaving the other believing that their season may be over.
