  1. All indications point to him being activated after tomorrow's game.

Berríos tossed an absolute gem, striking out eight and lowering his ERA to 3.49 over the course of seven innings for one of his better performances of an already strong campaign. Other than two poorly located pitches against Kyle Tucker and Robe
  3. José Berríos threw one of his greatest games of the season and big, timely hits from Miguel Sanó and Jorge Polanco helped drive the Minnesota Twins past the Houston Astros Saturday evening. Oh, and Nick Gordon was a major factor on the base paths and in centerfield.

  4. When the Minnesota Twins signed veteran shortstop Andrelton Simmons to a one-year, $10.5 million contract this past January they did so with the intention of him not only serving as a stopgap before top prospect Royce Lewis made his much anticipated jump to the Majors but also to shore up a Twins’ defense that desperately needed an upgrade over what Jorge Polanco was providing. The deal at the time was widely respected, neither panned nor necessarily praised, as it was widely understood that the team’s primary target to replace Polanco, Marcus Semien, who ultimately signed with the Toron
  5. The deal at the time was widely respected, neither panned nor necessarily praised, as it was widely understood that the team’s primary target to replace Polanco, Marcus Semien, who ultimately signed with the Toronto Bluejays, simply did not want to come to Minnesota. Additionally, Simmons had been the definition of a generational talent defensively since his debut in 2012, so there was quite literally no better option on the market if improving the team’s defense was a top priority. Simmons has largely lived up to his defensive reputation on his way to compiling 10 outs above average
  6. The Minnesota Twins made pitcher Griffin Jax the first athlete from the United States Air Force Academy to reach the Majors when they selected his contract and promoted him earlier this week from Triple-A St. Paul. While his route hasn’t exactly been straight forward, he has the potential to stick around. Amateur Career Jax was named the 2013 Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Colorado as well as a Louisville Slugger High School First-Team All-American after going 7-1 with a 1.74 ERA and a 57/2 K:BB ratio for Cherry Creek High School. He started 29 games on the mound
  7. Amateur Career Jax was named the 2013 Gatorade Player of the Year for the state of Colorado as well as a Louisville Slugger High School First-Team All-American after going 7-1 with a 1.74 ERA and a 57/2 K:BB ratio for Cherry Creek High School. He started 29 games on the mound for the Air Force Academy Falcons across his freshman and sophomore seasons while posting a mediocre 5.49 ERA with 115 strikeouts and 56 walks. However, he exploded onto the scene in 2016 during his junior season by going 9-2 with a 2.05 ERA and striking out 90 batters while walking only 20. He was selected as t

They were only able to gather two hits as a team, the other being a double off the bat of Mark Contreras. Additionally, Jhoan Duran - Twins Daily’s No. 5 prospect in the Twins system - looked like a mere mortal. He struggled with control all game

  10. Nothing solid, but this is the time of year when call-ups start cranking up. Not sure what else he can prove at High-A.
  11. All four minor league teams won on Sunday, including the Saints who have won seven in a row. It was a Grand day in Cedar Rapids. Wichita had another late-inning comeback, and Ft. Myers got a great pitching performance. TRANSACTIONS C Ben Rortvedt called up to Minnesota Twins (from St. Paul) RHP Ryan Shreve called up to Cedar Rapids (from Ft.

Bailey Ober started on the mound for St. Paul and was dominant the first time through the order. He struck out the first six batters he faced and had opponents looking foolish with his curveball.

  15. It was 81 degrees at CHS Field by the bottom of the third inning Saturday evening, but it wasn’t because it’s late May in Minnesota and summer is right around the corner. No, it was because St. Paul Saints starter Jhoan Duran was PUMPING HEAT. Duran - the Minnesota Twins’ #2 pitching prospect according to MLB Pipeline (#1 according to Twins Daily) - made his season debut for the Saints after being recently reinstated from the IL with a shoulder injury and touched 103 mph on multiple occasions according to CHS Field’s admittedly hot gun. He threw 63 pitches, allowed four hits and one

  18. Matt Canterino has put up some really intriguing numbers early in the season for Cedar Rapids. The Minnesota Twins own one of the deeper farm systems in all of baseball and their cupboard is chock full of intriguing pitching prospects, many of whom may find their way to Minneapolis over the next one to two seasons. One such pitcher is right-hander Matt Canterino of Southlake, Texas, a national hotbed for producing professional athletes, who is currently stashed at High-A Cedar Rapids. Canterio - the Twins’ 2019 second round pick out of Rice University - comes in at No. 7 down o

  20. Randy Dobnak and Lewis Thorpe threw for the St. Paul Saints on Sunday afternoon. This is how they've looked for the team thus far this spring. I witnessed the St. Paul Saints lose in Twinsian fashion live and in person Sunday afternoon after Ian Gibaut allowed eight earned runs to cross the plate in the ninth inning, but, thankfully, that’s not what this article is about. This article is about Randy Dobnak and Lewis Thorpe. Randy Dobnak made his third start for the Saints after being optioned off the Twins’ roster on May 3 with the intent of being stretched out and looked much more

This article is about Randy Dobnak and Lewis Thorpe. Randy Dobnak made his third start for the Saints after being optioned off the Twins’ roster on May 3 with the intent of being stretched out and looked much more like his early 2020 self than he did during his previous outing. He sat 92-93 mph with his sinker on Sunday and touched as high as 96 mph with
  22. Boxscore José Berríos: 7.0 IP, 8 H, 4 R, 4 ER, 0 BB, 6 K Home Runs: Sanó (3) Top 3 WPA: Sanó .558, Donaldson .145, Cruz .141 Win Probability Chart (via FanGraphs) Well, that's one way to win a game. Trailing 4-1 entering the bottom of the eighth inning, the Minnesota Twins scored four runs — capped off by a three-run home run off the bat of Miguel Sanó — to claim their first win since defeating the Detroit Tigers 7-3 over a week ago. But — and at risk of being an brutal Debbie downer — suffice it to say that the Twins are still not playing very well right now.
  23. The Minnesota Twins won and now sit at 13-24. But many of the team's struggles continued to manifest on Saturday. When will the team start making changes?
