  1. The Struggles of Scott Diamond

    To say that Rochester Red Wings pitcher Scott Diamond has had a tough start to the 2014 season,would be putting it nicely.

    Diamond, Rochesterís opening day starter, is 0-2 on the season with an International League worse 15.58 ERA. If that large number wasnít enough, through just nine innings pitched in three starts, Diamond has allowed an IL worse 25 hits and walked seven batters as well.




    After his last ...

    Calling the 2013 Rochester Red Wings season a roller coaster ride would be considered a drastic understatement. Rochester started off the year at 2-11, went on to finish the season 77-67, clinched a wild card birth, and made their first playoff appearance in seven years.

    This years team is completely different, none of the current pitchers were on last years opening day roster, and just three position players from opening day are returning. ...

  7. A Very Early Look at the 2014 Rochester Red Wings

    It's been just four days since the Red Wings lost game five of their playoff series against the Pawtucket Red Sox, 3-0. Immediately after the game the Minnesota Twins selected contracts of seven Rochester players, which started me thinking about what the Red Wings could look like in 2014.

    While there will be free agent signings, trades will take place, it will be interesting to see exactly what the Rochester Red Wings are going to look like next season, and see if theyíll be able to ...
  8. Interview with Red Wings Centerfielder Aaron Hicks

    Entering his sixth professional season, Aaron Hicks has been one of the biggest prospects in the Minnesota Twins system for the past five years. After having a strong season with New Britain last year, Hicks was given the opportunity to compete and win the starting center-fielders job for the Twins. But after hitting just .192 in 281 at-bats in Minnesota, he was sent down to Rochester to continue to develop his swing and to ensure that he will be ready for the 2014 season in the majors. After batting ...

    Before the season-started manager Gene Glynn named Kyle Gibson the number two starter in the rotation, slightly surprising considering Gibsonís hype, but would take the mound in game two against, the Buffalo Bisons.

    In his first start of the year, Gibson pitched 5 innings, giving up four hits, one run, striking out four, and walking none. Leaving the game with the lead after five innings, Michael ...

    Rapidly approaching the midpoint of the season, the Rochester Red Wings sit just two games short of the .500 mark at 34-36 after sweeping the four game series against the Gwinnett Braves this weekend.

    Currently in fourth place in the Northern division, seven games back, it seems like it was just a month ago that we were wondering what kind of season this was going to be in Rochester, so what has changed?
