  1. Awesome that you got to see the game! It is definitely a trip I'd like to make in the future. Miranda has definitely taken steps forward that you want to see this year (plate discipline), and the results are following. He will definitely get a bump soon keeping this up.
  2. There were big time prospects on the mound at each of the upper levels of the Minnesota Twins system on Tuesday night, and another in the lowest level who may be giving them a run for their money so far in the 2021 season. It did not go remotely well for one of those top prospects however, while the other added to their legend.

TRANSACTIONS RHP Yennier Cano was promoted to the St. Paul Saints along with RHP Shaun Anderson being sent on a rehab assignment IF Will Holland was activated from the injured list for the Fort Myers Mighty Mussels. SAINTS SENTINEL Iowa 3, St. Paul 1 Box Score Those in attendance in St. Paul on Tuesday night were surely excited to watch top Twins pitching prospect Jhoan Duran take the mound. But they did not g
  4. Change-up has definitely been known as his best pitch, but I wouldn't classify him as a "soft-tosser," especially for a lefty. He was 92-94 in this one when I was paying attention. 55 of his 93 pitches in the game went for strikes (59%), which isn't a great percentage, but he's kept his walk rate in decent territory so far this year. It's hard to find plus command in the minors anywhere. The one Twins prospect who has it is Bailey Ober.
  5. As Seth mentions, the 40-man plays a big role here. If his chance is going to come, it's likely a situation where the others aren't available and the Twins need a body. But that can easily change as the season goes on and he keeps this up as well.
  6. I have been a huge fan of Hackimer, so much so I'm actually surprised they didn't have more of a leash for him to work through anything. That said, he had been...not good...since his promotion to the Saints. Release also odd in that he was just promoted not that long ago. Moran and Cano have been awesome! Said weeks ago after watching Cano that he needs to be in triple-A. They both should be pushed, and soon!
  7. Well, this is depressing 😑 Same way the Twins lost Burdi, no? He'd still be a definite add for me.
  8. In minor league action on Tuesday night, Minnesota Twins affiliates had a couple of their best performing starting pitchers taking the mound, a season debut for another, and the major league team’s MVP beginning a rehab assignment. To find out how all your favorite Minnesota Twins prospects performed in Tuesday night’s series opening games, keep reading! TRANSACTIONS The Minnesota Twins optioned CF Gilberto Celestino and outrighted RHP Juan Minaya to the Saints. Byron Buxton was activated for his rehab assignment, and RHP Tom Hackimer was released. RHP Cody Lawerys

  10. I'm a little disappointed, with all the BBQ you ate, that Jack Stack's wasn't one of the spots! 😉
  11. You're not the only one 🙂 While I know most of the names, with the no 2020 minor league season we're seeing/hearing about a lot of them for the first time this year. A lot of the Fort Myers players were 18/19 rookie league guys in 2019, or didn't even play that year for whatever reason. It'll be a lot of fun getting to know them better as this year goes along though!
  12. In minor league action on Tuesday night the St. Paul Saints were rained out in Louisville, but each of the other three affiliates came away with a win. Two of those games were nail-biters with pitchers finding ways to limit runs for each team, and the third was not decided until late with a clutch home run.

TRANSACTIONS • In triple-A the Saints were assigned 2B Sherman Johnson from Wichita, and in a corresponding move OF Mark Contreras was sent back to the Wind Surge. •

  14. Agree, it's almost like he's turned into a completely different player. He was a slugger at Auburn, broke Frank Thomas' RBI record I believe. No homers yet this year, but a big OPS driven by that on-base percentage. He's not a huge guy by any means, but also not what you think of for a burner type player either.
