  1. Kohl Stewart's Abbreviated Start, His Velocity, and Strikeouts

    On Saturday, the Twins' 2013 first round draft pick, Kohl Stewart, had his last start of the first half of the season for the Cedar Rapids Kernels.

    He was originally scheduled to pitch on Sunday, but had his start moved up a day so that he'd have two days of rest before Tuesday's Midwest League All-Star game.

  2. Twins Minor League Report (6/13): Meyer Exits Early

    Kyle Gibson and the Minnesota Twins shutout Detroit to climb back within one game of .500 and just 3.0 games back of the Tigers divisional lead on Friday.

    Unfortunately, the organizationís affiliates didnít fare as well, going 0-2 (3?) on the night despite some big names on the mound.

  3. Carew to Puckett to Hunter to Perkins

    Through my forty plus years following the Twins I have off and on had one player that stood out as my favorite. As I've grown older the reason for a player earning the designation of "favorite Twin" has evolved.

    The Carew Era - When I was a young baseball fan

    When I first tuned the radio to the Twins in the 70's it was Rod Carew. Rodney made a big impression, he was fast, smooth and graceful. He even made ...

  5. Twins Minor League Report (6/12): Pino Wins Again!

    The Twins did not play on Thursday, but that does not mean they were idle. Reports are that center fielder Sam Fuld is ready to join the Twins on Friday in Detroit, and that catcher Eric Fryer has been recalled to take the place of Josmil Pinto. The Twins have not announced a corresponding roster move to make room for Sam Fuld, but Aaron Hicks is a likely candidate to either go on the Disable List with a bum shoulder, or be demoted to AAA to work on hitting right handed against right handed pitchers. ...

    Sure, not everyone thought he was washed up. Over the winter his agent -- Matt Sosnick of Sosnick Cobbe Sports -- reassured me that Willingham was strong like bull after his knee surgery in 2013. The procedure cleaned everything up and he was healthy. The message? Get ready because 2014 would be a rebirth of Willingham -- avert your eyes because you ...

    If you're listening to this podcast, you probably have more than a passing interest in Twins baseball. You've probably read about all of their draft picks, even guys drafted after the first few rounds, like Minnesota native Pat Kelly, who was taken in the 12th round.

  9. Twins Minor League Report (6/10): Shibuya Flirts with No-No

    The Twins took care of business in Toronto on Tuesday night and most of the teams in the minor leagues were able to follow their lead. It didn't take long for Kendrys Morales to remember how to hit and Brian Dozier is putting himself into the All-Star conversation at second base.

    Minnesota is in the mix for the playoffs and many of their minor league affiliates are fighting for first half titles. Every win is important so let's jump down on the pond to check out the action.

ID:	7770Coming into spring training, I don't think that Ron Gardenhire and the Twins were planning on bringing Josmil Pinto north with the big-league club. The young backstop had been awfully impressive with the bat during a September audition in 2013, sure, but Twins officials commented repeatedly throughout the offseason that he was still somewhat raw and his defensive game needed work.

    That was a fair position to hold. Pinto was a bit of a slow developer ...
  11. Twins Hangouts: Tuesday, June 10.

    If you haven't noticed, it's Tuesday again. This week's Hangout had been listed as day-to-day which, in TwinsSpeak, could mean a day, a week, or possibly that we'd never do another Hangout again. You just. Don't. Know.

  14. Thorpe, Romero Make Kernels Debuts

    As the Cedar Rapids Kernels wrap up the final stretch of the first half of their 2014 Midwest League season, the parent Minnesota Twins sent them some needed starting pitching help in the form of two teenage pitching prospects.

    Australian 18-year old lefty Lewis Thorpe and right-hander Fernando Romero, a 19-year old out of the Dominican Republic joined the Kernels from extended spring training last week and both were immediately inserted in to the starting rotation by manager ...
