  1. Twins Minor League Report (5/25): Gibson's Latest Pitch

    There were several stories to follow with the Twins minor league teams on Saturday. Kyle Gibson was back on the mound, looking to put together back-to-back good starts for the first time this season. How did he do? New Britain finished a suspended game and played a second game. Matt Summers was terrific in Ft. Myers. Jorge Polanco was very good and JO Berrios was back on the mound for the Kernels.

    The big news of the night was that DJ Baxendale has been promoted to New Britain. Baxendale ...

  2. Twins Minor League Report (5/23): Baxendale, Darnell Shine

    I’ve been following the Twins minor league system pretty much daily for the past eight years. I can honestly say that I have not seen a pitcher have a stretch like DJ Baxendale has to start this season. His May numbers (see below) have been incredible. But there were other great performances including a 22-year-old southpaw throwing eight innings in New Britain. And Ft. Myers continues to get offense from unlikely sources.

  3. Step Right Up...

    It is now late May, and the Twins season is at a crossroads. The team has lost eight straight games as it embarks on a four-game series in Detroit against the Tigers. The season is in flux, and right now, the roster, specifically the starting rotation, is in flux.

    Before tonight's game, the Twins will add Samuel Deduno to their 40 man roster and then their 25 man roster. Most likely, Tim Wood will be put on the 60 Days Disabled List. Following another poor performance on Thursday, the ...

  4. Twins Minor League Report (5/20): Sano Powers Miracle

    The Twins losing streak went to seven games with a tough loss in Atlanta. They’ll have to get over it quick for a noon game (Eastern) on Wednesday. Twins Daily has learned that Chris Colabello will be attempting to join the Twins in time for the game.

    Virgil Vasquez made a spot start in place of the promoted Sam Deduno. Trevor May had one of the craziest line scores you’ll see. One Twins minor leaguer hit a homer for the third straight game on Tuesday, and it isn’t the same guy that ...

  5. Chris Colabello to be promoted to Twins

    Though we do not know the follow up transactions (DL and 40 man implications), Twins Daily has learned from multiple sources that Chris Colabello has been promoted to the Minnesota Twins. He'll have a very early morning flight and hope to join the Twins for Wednesday's game in Atlanta.

    It is possible that Colabello will take the 25-man roster spot of Trevor Plouffe, who was kneed in the back of the head on a slide at second base. He left the game and was clearly woozy. Likely Eduardo ...

  6. Twins MLB Draft Profile: Austin Meadows, OF

    Today, we continue our look at players that the Minnesota Twins could consider drafting with the #4 overall pick in next month's MLB Draft. Today, we look at an uber-talented prep player from a baseball hotbed!

    Who Is This Guy?

    It can be argued that outfielder Austin Meadows is the top-rated high school position player in the 2013 MLB Draft. It can also be argued that Austin Meadows is not the top-rated high school position player in the 2013 MLB Draft from Loganville, ...

  7. Twins Minor League Report (5/19): Gibson, Richardson, Colabello Star

    The Twins and the Red Sox had a nice three hour rain delay, and fans were treated to The Sandlot during the delay. There was plenty of excitement in the Twins minor league system as well. One of the Twins top prospects almost made a little bit of history. One of the Twins minor league affiliates won on a walk off. A couple of non-roster players continued to make their cases for a big league roster spot.

    With that, check out what happened with the Twins minor league teams on Sunday: ...

  8. Twins Minor League Report (5/18): Great Pitching, Not Much Hitting

    The Minnesota Twins may not have received a very good start from Scott Diamond, but all four Twins minor league started pitched very well on Saturday night. Each of them pitched into the 7th inning and gave up two or less runs. Unfortunately, the hitters from just three of the four affiliates scored enough runs to help their team win. By the time the Twins game got to the 6th inning, all four minor league games were done.

  9. Twins Minor League Report (5/17): Streaks and Walkoffs

    One Minnesota Twins affiliate won 4-3, in 12 innings. Another affiliate lost 4-3 on an unearned run in the 9th inning. The Twins top minor league pitcher so far this season was back on the mound again tonight and didn’t disappoint. Chris Colabello and Andrew Albers are two players that came to the Twins organization via the Can-Am League. They both have a pretty impressive streak with the Red Wings right now. So much happened in the Twins farm system on Friday that I didn’t even mention Miguel Sano ...

  10. Twins Minor League Report (5/16): Buxton Blasts Kernels to Win

    All four Minnesota Twins minor league affiliates played on Thursday night. Two of them won in dramatic, walk-off fashion. One was a two-run single, and one was a lot more dramatic than that. One of the other Twins affiliates won in shutout fashion, just the way you write it up. Starter goes seven, dominant reliever with a strong eighth and another dominant reliever with a scoreless ninth inning. Also, the Twins now have a new organizational home run leader as of today, so you’ll want to check that ...

  11. Twins Minor League Report (5/14): Lee, Walker Propel Kernels

    Overall, it was not a good day for the Minnesota Twins’ minor league affiliates. However, you’ll want to see what the Cedar Rapids Kernels’ most productive and most exciting hitters did on Tuesday.

    Kyle Gibson was back on the mound for the first time since his complete game shutout. How did the Red Wings right-hander back up his strong performance? Antoan Richardson performed the duties of leadoff hitter very well. Cedar Rapids also made several transactions.

  12. Hope for Hicks

    Coming into the game, centerfielder Aaron Hicks had a hitting line of .137/.239/.216 (.455). He had just five extra base hits in the first 30 games. He had struggled one defense as well as with the bat.

    And then came Monday night.

    After popping up in his first at bat, Hicks came up to the plate to lead off the 4th inning. He launched a long home run, 416 feet to straight-away centerfield.

    In the top of the 6th inning, the Twins lead had been cut to 5-3 with ...

  13. Twins Minor League Report (4/12): Soul Patrol Part Deux

    Three minor league affiliates played on Sunday. The two upper-level minor league affiliates played very good, close ball games. Ft. Myers had a day off. The game in Beloit on Sunday was just crazy. You’ll note the final score looks much more like a football score than a baseball score. That is all good news for the Kernels hitters. It certainly doesn’t speak well for the Kernels starters on this day. Consider this early preview… Kernels outfielders (JD Williams, Byron Buxton and Adam Walker combined ...

There were three very good starts. Sam Deduno made his second start of the year, and no less than four WBC competitors had very good games in the Twins minor leagues on Saturday.

    On Sunday, the Miracle will get a day off. Rochester will send PJ Walters to the mound. New Britain will have Logan Darnell start. ...
