Mitch Garver Has to Look Beyond the Groove

The Twins’ Silver Slugger-winning catcher is struggling mightily so far in 2020, and the problem might be the very approach on which we all lavish so much praise.

Twins Notebook 8/12: Kenta Maeda Looks to Continue Strong Start

The beauty of baseball is that every day represents a new opportunity to reset and put the past in the past. After a tough loss on Tuesday night, the Minnesota Twins will get the opportunity on Wednesday to take the series against their border rivals and head into an off-day of much needed rest.

Tyler Duffey: The Bullpen Ace that Almost Got Away

By May of 2019, Tyler Duffey had just about reached the end of the line in Minnesota. Optioned to the minors for a 10th time since his initial call-up in 2015, the right-hander had to be looking forward to a fresh start.

Thankfully, unlike the two other best relief pitchers in baseball – both former Twins – he didn't need one to turn the corner.

MIL 6, MIN 4: Another Loss for Rogers, Additional Missed Opportunities for Offense

Rocco Baldelli was managing his way through another bullpen game and decided to deploy closer Taylor Rogers in the eighth inning to face the middle of Milwaukee’s lineup. The aggressive move didn’t work out, as Jedd Gyorko hit a go-ahead two-run homer that proved to be the difference in the game.

Paving a Path, Women in Baseball: Vanessa Lambert

With the front office and field operations covered on the Twins front, a behind the scenes look at how Twins baseball gets delivered is this weeks focus for the women in baseball series. Vanessa Lambert is a Producer with Fox Sports North and she’s the one that makes sure everything runs smoothly for the viewing audience. In a fan-less season, I’m not sure there’s a great position of importance.

Is It Time for Jhoan Duran?

One of the questions coming into 2020 was how teams would handle prospects. Thus far, teams across the MLB landscape have shown a willingness to call-up top prospects, including several starting pitchers. With injuries severely testing Minnesota’s rotational depth, is it time for the Twins to do the same?

Twins Notebook 8/10: How Will Baldelli Use the Bullpen After Clippard Opens?

Last night Randy Dobnak took the title of Twins ace and continued his mastery on the mound. Allowing just a single run in five innings of work, his MLB best ERA continued to get the job done for Minnesota. With the losing streak snapped, Tyler Clippard and the bullpen will look to keep the Twins rolling tonight.

MIN 4, MIL 2: The Randy and Rosie Show

Randy Dobnak has been so good in 2020, he gave up one run over five innings tonight and his ERA actually went up. Eddie Rosario provided all the offense, hitting a grand slam in the third inning, as the Twins beat the Brewers 4-2.

Ranking the Twins' Current Injury Concerns

For the first time this season, Minnesota is reeling and trying to figure out someway to stop their recent losing streak. One reason for their mounting loses could be the plethora of injuries the team has already been facing. There are five players currently on the injured list, so which injuries are most concerning to the team’s success this season?

Why Harder Might Not Mean Better for José Berríos

The Twins’ ace hasn’t been one through the first quarter of this 60-game season, and that’s hurt within and between his starts. His hard stuff, in particular, is failing him.
