Thanks for the minor league playoff updates!I know team success isn't the primary concern in the minors, but I think it's still important, and well, the Twins aren't going anywhere, so it's nice to have a couple affiliates to cheer for at least!


I'd be curious to know, of Pineda's pitches, how many were offspeed, and how many of those were strikes.Sure, he threw 29 of 33 for strikes, but was he just pumping in fastballs?The 95 velo is nice to see, but it's not unheard of for pitchers to come back from TJ actually throwing harder than before.It's the control that's hardest to get back.
