In Search of a Why Behind Mitch Garver's Slump

I set out in search of a diagnosis with regard to Mitch Garver’s offensive slump – and maybe by extension a suggested cure. But I’m afraid what I found might only be a little more granular explanation of the symptoms. Let's not worry about the math as much as what the numbers are saying.

Questioning the Twins Bullpen Usage

The Twins are nearly a third of the way through their 60-game sprint to the playoffs. Barring a massive implosion, Minnesota should finish in the top-8 teams and this puts them into a three-game toss-up series where a lot of things could happen. In a shortened season, there are going to be plenty of things to question and one of the biggest question marks so far has been the team’s bullpen usage.

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.

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.
