  5. Is Pedro Florimon Meeting or Exceeding Expectations?

    On Tuesday, we took a look at Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier and noted that his performance is certainly trending in the right direction, and that continued on Wednesday night in Kansas City. Today, weíll shift to the other side of the infield and try to determine whether Dozierís keystone combination partner Pedro Florimon is meeting or exceeding expectations.

    If Iím being honest, my expectations for Mr. Florimon were not terribly high. In fact, when I posted my 2013 Twins ...

  6. Twins Minor League Report (8/6): Rock Cat Bats Bash

    When youíve followed the Minnesota Twins farm system for as long as I have, you canít help but root for the underdog. Itís easy to be a fan of Miguel Sano, Byron Buxton and other top prospects, no question about that. But the fun part of following the farm system, for me at least, is that there is no one way to the big leagues. There are many different paths. Andrew Albers is the newest example of a guy who didnít exactly make a direct trip through the minors to the big leagues. What a story! He ...

  7. Trending in the Right Direction

    Anyone that looked at the Minnesota Twins roster coming out of spring training new that the team would not be competing with the Detroit Tigers in 2013. So, in my mind, 2013 would be all about development and improvement. Those two things would be the keys, the things I would be looking for, in 2013.

    From a development standpoint, the Twins farm system continues to add talent, and the top ranked players are continuing to improve as they move up. From an improvement standpoint, there ...

  10. Twins Minor League Relief Pitcher of the Month - July

    In recent days, we posted the choices for Minnesota Twins Minor League Starting Pitchers and Hitters for the month of July. Today, I present the top relief pitching performers for the month. There are a couple of guys at the top of this list that, if you argued the other should be #1, or vice versa, I wouldnít have much of an argument. Two guys stand out on this list, but all five of them warrant recognition. Interestingly, the short-season teams played all of July and they are represented on this ...

  11. Twins Minor League Report (8/3): Rochester Wins in Dramatic Fashion

    There are a lot of ways to win a ball game, but one of the most unlikely occurred in Rochester on Saturday night. A 29-year-old from Marshalltown, Iowa, who was drafted by the Minnesota Twins eleven years ago got to play hero, twice. Another minor league free agent signing helped lead the New Britain Rock Cats to a big victory. A great way to get a win happened with the Ft. Myers Miracle. If your pitcher throws a complete game shutout, there is a good chance your team will win.

    Of course, ...

    The Twins announced tonight that Andrew Albers will be called up tomorrow to the Minnesota Twins. It is something that he very much deserves. Who knows how it will go for him, but he has earned the opportunity.

    Following the 2011 Twins minor league season, I named Andrew Albers the Minnesota Twins Minor League Relief Pitcher of the Year. Because of that, I wrote the below story about him that appeared in the 2012 Minnesota Twins Prospect Handbook. Like so many other Twins this season, ...
