  2. Twins Minor League Report (6/27): Walk-off's and Bid For Perfection...

    The Twins were lifeless for the entire game against Rangers starter Nick Tepesch, before Twins Dailyís #8 prospect Jorge Polanco made a big splash in the ninth inning with a two-RBI triple off closer Joakim Soria to make the score 5-4. Unfortunately, a Brian Dozier strikeout and Kurt Suzuki groundout would prevent him from becoming the Miracle ninth-inning hero.

  6. Twins Draft Preview: Nick Gordon

    Arguably, it's been quite a long time since the Twins have employed a franchise type player at the most important position on the diamond, shortstop (I'll leave J.J.
