The Miracle didn’t quite reach their 12-run total from Sunday, but on Monday they did score seven runs. They also got another strong starter who is beginning this season with a great streak. Pensacola’s Opening Day starter was terrific again, and the Blue Wahoos game ended with a back flip, so that’s always good.Find out everything that happened happened in the Twins system on Monday, starting with the transactions of the day

Two good offensive games and that FTM box score doesn’t look quite so ... offensive.

Don’t get me wrong, a few OPSs near the Mendoza line, but two nights ago it was brutal.

Keep mashing Royce. Need you tearing up AA ASAP.

Alcala has started out well. Like the strikes outs and lack of baserunners.

Now he needs to get deeper in games

He only threw 90 pitches yesterday and around 75 the other 2 starts. He’d be going plenty deep into games with 100 pitches.

Dobnak doesn't have the prospect shine, but he sure seems to get the job done for this organization.I hope he can keep moving up, pitching his game and find himself with a chance to play at Target Field someday.

 

Please stay healthy, Bailey Ober.It's great to see him come back and pick up where he left off last season when he got hurt.

 

Great to see those Miracle bats coming alive.Hopefully, Javier gets up to CR soon and can inject some energy into that lineup.

There are still pitch count limits in the minors after 3 starts. They're going to be cautious with these guys.

Sorry if you've answered this in the previous days minor league reports Seth, but what are we waiting on exactly for Wander Javier and Alex Kirilloff?You mentioned Kirilloff's injury briefly when the team rosters were announced, but haven't heard any updates

 

Besides that, great to see the Miracle bats catching up to help the OUTSTANDING pitching performances in the FSL.

I hadn't heard anything until Sunday when Jeremy Zoll said that Kirilloff and Javier are both very close. That's not detailed, but it's what we've got.

He's looked really, really good... Secondary stuff has looked very improved... through three starts.
