  1. Another great weekend in SWFL for baseball and the EXST is getting into stride as the starting pitchers are starting to get stretched out going 3 innings. On Friday at the Jet Blue complex, Huascar Ynoa and Edwar Colina both started and went 3 IP. Ynoa worked in his slider and changeup with his fastball that has good late sink at 92-94 mph. Colina was also working a slider and a change but his fastball was 94-96 mph yet with not much movement. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zujYwEsJmFs https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qeVvEFwHyxc On Saturday, Miguel DeJesus and Jordan Balazovic started both going 3 innings. In Game B, Balazovic was impressive with mixing of breaking balls with his 91-92mph fastball that he commanded well. In Game A, DeJesus was throwing his fastball 92-93, Relieving Balzovic was rehabber RHP Keaton Steele whose fastball was 90-91 and went 2 IP. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mKgK0Pila6E https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ugQFoKGpYpQ Following up DeJesus in Game A was LHP Nick Greenwood and it was interesting. Greenwood came in and was throwing like any other pitcher but after the first batter Twins' trainer Corey Dietze was barking from behind homeplate what seemed to be about Greenwood not extending/getting over on his fastball. After the next batter came up, the Dietze called time in the game from behind home plate and then proceeded to head to the mound. My inclination in hindsight is that it had to do with Greenwood's velocity as that is what the trainer was watching as well. Nick topped at 87 mph and was sitting 77-82 mph. Greenwood threw for another two batters before being pulled and throwing in the bullpen again. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n1-PWVUUjnI After Greenwood's abbreviated outing RHP Kam Mickolio came into the game getting 4 outs with a fastball 91-93 mph. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zisIukBXpWE RHP Jose Martinez finished up the game, going two innings, striking out three with a 92-94 mph fastball. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=liTmqZj2XL0 Back in Game B, after Balazovic and Steele, Venezuelan 21 yo RHP Melvi Acosta and Dominican 21yo RHP Amilcar Cruz came into the game. Acosta threw his fastball 93-94 mph but had control issues. Cruz was 91-93 mph with his fastball and showed a decent 80-82 mph slider. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZYZCVYJp8ds https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jEftFt6u3tI Side note, RHP Griffin Jax is listed on the newest and most up to date EXST rosters and is slated to see some game action hopefully. Also, the Twins are converting Trey Cabbage from 3B to LF. I'll have Monday's wrap up later this evening or tomorrow morning. RHP Brusdar Graterol was on the mound he showed flashes of brilliance.
  2. Byron Buxton is back with the Twins and they won a game. So take that, 13-game losing streak! Transaction Report: Byron Buxton recalled from Rochester to the Big Leagues, Tanner English promoted to Rochester from Fort Myers to replace him, Logan Lombana promoted to fort Myers from Cedar Rapids. Colton Davis was promoted to Cedar Rapids from Elizabethton to complete the chain. Continue reading to find out more detail about Thursday in the Twins farm system: RED WINGS REPORT Lehigh Valley IronPigs @ Rochester Box Score Anthony Vasquez, started for the IronPigs, pitched a complete game, 8.0 innings, giving up four hits, a run, and striking out eight, but he gave up a solo home run to Tommy Field in the fifth inning, the only run of the game. The Red Wings pitching staff did one better than Vasquez, shutting out the IronPigs. Nick Greenwood went 7.0 innings, gave up four hits, no runs, no walks, and struck out five.

  5. How many doubleheaders can be played in one day? The Twins farm system tried their best to maximize the answer to this question on Tuesday. There were a trio of doubleheaders up and down the Twins system on Tuesday. The Miracle, Kernels, and DSL Twins all had to make up from some weather issues in the last month. This led to a jam-packed Monday schedule with plenty of chances for players to shine. Chattanooga had a scheduled day off and the GCL Twins were postponed but all the other teams were in action. Which players would stand out above the crowd? Read on to find out.RED WINGS REPORT Rochester 0, Buffalo 3 Box Score For his third straight start, Nick Greenwood pitched at least seven innings and allowed three runs or fewer. On Monday night he tossed seven innings while scattering seven hits. He struck out three and walked three but left the mound trailing 2-0. Neil Ramirez came on in relief and allowed a solo home run during his inning of work. Unfortunately, the Rochester offense couldn't get going in this one.

Daniel Palka added his 12th double, the team's lone extra-base knock. Mitch Garver reached base twice and is hitting .375 since being promoted. Byron Buxton was 0-for-4 out of the leadoff spot. The loss drops the Red Wings to 68-56 on the season as they sit nine games out of first place in the International League North.

MIRACLE MATTERS Fort Myers 1, St. Lucie 0 (Game 1- 8 Innings) Box Score In what was scheduled to be a seven-inning contest, the pitching staffs for both teams combined to put up zeros until the eighth frame.

Gordon was able advance Miller to third on a deep fly to left. Joe Maloney brought home Miller on a ground ball single. Maloney finished the game 2-for-4 with the only RBI for either team. Alex Perez picked up a pair of hits in three trips to the plate. Nick Gordon and Christian Ibarra both finished 1-for-4. Overall, the team went 1-for-8 with runners in scoring position. Sam Clay had orginally started this resumed game and made it through one inning. He walked two and didn't allow an earned run. Luke Westphal and Michael Theofanopoulos each pitched 3.1 scoreless innings while combining to strike out seven.

Following a double play, Tanner English slashed a triple to score Perez. Sean Miller drove in English with a double. Things got even more interesting in the final frame. After back-to-back singles from Brad Hartong and Daniel Kihle, Christian Ibarra hit a three-run blast to cut the lead to 8-6. The comeback attempt ended there as the next two batters failed to reach base. Randy LeBlanc started and was charged with eight earned runs on 10 hits. He struck out one and walked two. Cam Booser tossed three shutout frames while striking out six. It was the first time all season Booser pitched more than two innings and the six strikeouts tied a career high. KERNELS NUGGETS Cedar Rapids 1, Peoria 10 (Game 1- 7 Innings) Box Score Sam Gibbons was roughed up in this one for seven earned runs in less than five innings of work.

Williams Ramirez ran into a little trouble in the final frame as he walked a couple of batters with two outs but it wasn't nearly enough E-TOWN E-NOTES Elizabethton 7, Johnson City 17 Box Score The E-Twins found themselves in the middle of quite the slugfest but they didn't have nearly enough firepower on this night. Johnson City pounded out 17 runs on 21 hits with all but one batter in their line-up reaching base multiple times. Ryan Mason started and was charged with seven earned runs on nine hits. He struck out two and walked one. Quin Grogan allowed five runs in his three innings with a pair of strikeouts. Austin Tribby closed things out as he allowed five runs in the final two frames.

Alex Kirilloff went 0-for-5 but managed to score a run. The E-Twins might have been looking forward to Wednesday's day off a little early as the club will have to recover from this lopsided affair.

  7. Happy Father’s Day across Twins territory, including Rochester, NY; Chattanooga, TN; Fort Myers, FL; and Cedar Rapids, IA! If you were out at a ballpark today, I hope you stayed hydrated! There were three games in the minor leagues on Sunday afternoon, with those teams looking to bring home a victory just like their parent club did against the Yankees. One team got most of their offense in just one inning, while the other two teams scored first and tried to hold on. Did any of them do enough to send their fans home happy? Let’s check out all the action from Sunday, and find out!RED WINGS REPORT Rochester 8, Toledo 5 Box Score Rochester used a big inning to take down the Toledo Mud Hens on Sunday, scoring seven of their eight runs in the sixth inning when they sent eleven men to the plate. Adam Walker led off the inning by reaching base on an error, moved to third on a John Ryan Murphy double, and scored their first run of the inning when James Beresford drove him in with a single. Logan Schafer followed with an RBI single and then both Toledo’s starting pitcher and manager were ejected. Jorge Polanco (1B), Eddie Rosario (sac fly), Tommy Field (2B), and Wilfredo Tovar (2B) all contributed RBI hits afterward, and the Red Wings took the lead 7-1. Nick Greenwood made the start for Rochester, his first AAA start of the year, and worked the first five innings. He allowed one run on four hits and a walk, and struck out two. In his five innings, Greenwood threw just fifty-eight pitches. Dan Runzler was the first man up from the bullpen for the bottom of the sixth, and the Mud Hens got three of those runs back off of him. He struck out the first man he faced, but a single and three walks scored one before Sean Burnett came on, with Runzler responsible for all men on base. Burnett got a ground ball and force at home for the second out, but a single to the next batter scored two more to make it 7-4. Burnett stayed in the game and pitched a one-two-three seventh inning before giving way to Alex Wimmers in the eighth. The Mud Hens John Hicks led off the inning with a double, and two ground ball outs would allow him to score, closing the gap to 7-5. The Red Wings got one back in the top of ninth, as Polanco brought in Beresford with a sac fly, but Wimmers finished off the victory with a scoreless bottom frame for his sixth save. Rochester improves their record to 42-28 on the year, and in the month of June has gone 13-5. CHATTANOOGA CHATTER Chattanooga 3, Montgomery 5 Box Score The Lookouts jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning thanks to a Daniel Palka sac fly to score Zach Granite from third, who had singled to lead off the game. Still in the first, they threatened to score another run, but Engelb Vielma was thrown out at home on a ground ball off the bat of Travis Harrison. Chattanooga’s starter Kohl Stewart gave that run back in the bottom of the first after recording two quick outs. A single and wild pitch followed by a bloop single tied the game at one. The Biscuits made it 2-1 in the second as a walk was followed by an RBI double, and two doubles in the third made it 3-1. The Biscuits would never look back. All told, Stewart finished four and one third innings, allowing five runs on eight hits and three walks. He struck out two and raised his ERA to 4.82 in four starts at AA. Mitch Garver closed the gap to 5-3 in the sixth inning, as his fifth home run of the year was a two-run shot to left field, but they would be shut out the rest of the way. Granite and Leonardo Reginatto each had two hits on the day. In addition to his RBI, Palka also stole his fifth base of the year. The bullpen duo of Corey Williams and Raul Fernandez finished the game without allowing a run. Williams walk two and gave up one hit in 1.2 innings, striking out one. Fernandez allowed a hit and a walk in his two innings. The Lookouts finish the first half of their season with a 36-34 record and second place in the North Division, ten games out of first place behind the Jackson Generals. They will have to win the division in the second half (or finish second to Jackson again) to find their way into the postseason. MIRACLE MATTERS The Miracle, along with the rest of the Florida State League, enjoyed Sunday afternoon off after their All-Star Game in Fort Myers yesterday. They are back in action on Monday night at home against the Charlotte Stone Crabs to kick off the second half of the FSL season. KERNELS NUGGETS Cedar Rapids 3, Quad Cities 4 Box Score The Kernels had the first lead in the game, as a walk from Daniel Kihle was followed by consecutive singles from Luis Arraez and Sean Miller in the top of the third inning. They also lost that lead in the bottom half of the frame, as starter Sam Clay was unable to finish the inning. He allowed a leadoff single, walk, and an RBI single while recording only one out before manager Jake Mauer went to the bullpen. Sam Gibbons came on and gave up a run on a wild pitch to his first batter, but escaped the inning with no further damage. Gibbons went on to pitch a scoreless fourth inning, but ran into trouble himself in the fifth. A single and three doubles added to the River Bandits lead, making it 4-1. An error, balk, and fly out put Sean Miller on third in the sixth, and a double off the bat of Zander Wiel brought him in to close it to 4-2. Anthony McIver pitched the final two innings for Cedar Rapids, retiring every batter he faced, including two strikeouts, to give the Kernels offense a chance. In the ninth, Chris Ibarra drew a walk and was moved to third on a J.J. Fernandez single to put the tying runs on base. Kihle brought in Ibarra with a ground ball out, but Fernandez was stranded on second to end the game. Arreaz was the only hitter with multiple hits, including a double. As a team the Kernels were just 1-11 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base. They finish the first half of the Midwest League season with a 36-22 record, finishing third in the Western Division, 2.5 games out of a clinching a playoff spot. Cedar Rapids will play host to the Midwest League All-Star Game on Tuesday night at 7:05PM CST. The Kernels will be represented in the game by position players Luis Arreaz and LaMonte Wade (both voted starters), and pitcher Sam Clay.

  8. RED WINGS REPORT Rochester 8, Toledo 5 Box Score Rochester used a big inning to take down the Toledo Mud Hens on Sunday, scoring seven of their eight runs in the sixth inning when they sent eleven men to the plate. Adam Walker led off the inning by reaching base on an error, moved to third on a John Ryan Murphy double, and scored their first run of the inning when James Beresford drove him in with a single. Logan Schafer followed with an RBI single and then both Toledo’s starting pitcher and manager were ejected. Jorge Polanco (1B), Eddie Rosario (sac fly), Tommy Field (2B), and Wilfredo Tovar (2B) all contributed RBI hits afterward, and the Red Wings took the lead 7-1. Nick Greenwood made the start for Rochester, his first AAA start of the year, and worked the first five innings. He allowed one run on four hits and a walk, and struck out two. In his five innings, Greenwood threw just fifty-eight pitches. Dan Runzler was the first man up from the bullpen for the bottom of the sixth, and the Mud Hens got three of those runs back off of him. He struck out the first man he faced, but a single and three walks scored one before Sean Burnett came on, with Runzler responsible for all men on base. Burnett got a ground ball and force at home for the second out, but a single to the next batter scored two more to make it 7-4. Burnett stayed in the game and pitched a one-two-three seventh inning before giving way to Alex Wimmers in the eighth. The Mud Hens John Hicks led off the inning with a double, and two ground ball outs would allow him to score, closing the gap to 7-5. The Red Wings got one back in the top of ninth, as Polanco brought in Beresford with a sac fly, but Wimmers finished off the victory with a scoreless bottom frame for his sixth save. Rochester improves their record to 42-28 on the year, and in the month of June has gone 13-5. CHATTANOOGA CHATTER Chattanooga 3, Montgomery 5 Box Score The Lookouts jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning thanks to a Daniel Palka sac fly to score Zach Granite from third, who had singled to lead off the game. Still in the first, they threatened to score another run, but Engelb Vielma was thrown out at home on a ground ball off the bat of Travis Harrison. Chattanooga’s starter Kohl Stewart gave that run back in the bottom of the first after recording two quick outs. A single and wild pitch followed by a bloop single tied the game at one. The Biscuits made it 2-1 in the second as a walk was followed by an RBI double, and two doubles in the third made it 3-1. The Biscuits would never look back.

  9. RED WINGS REPORT Syracuse @ Rochester - Postponed The Red Wings game on Sunday afternoon was postponed due to inclement weather. The game will be made up as part of a doubleheader on June 30th. Rochester finished their recent homestand with a 5-1 record and begins a seven-game road trip tomorrow night in Charlotte. CHATTANOOGA CHATTER Biloxi 1, Chattanooga 2 Box Score There was little offense to be had for either team in this one, as both starting pitchers put in solid efforts. For the Shuckers, it was Jorge Ortega who held Chattanooga scoreless into the seventh inning, and for the Lookouts it was Nick Greenwood who limited Biloxi’s scoring chances for nearly the entire game. Biloxi got on the board first in the third inning after a one-out double put a runner in scoring position who was later driven in from third on a ground out. But that would be it for the Shuckers as Greenwood allowed only three more hits over the next five innings. On the game he went eight innings, allowing just the one run on six hits and no walks, while striking out three. The Lookouts were able to tie the game at one in the sixth when Daniel Palka and Travis Harrison clubbed back-to-back doubles with two outs. In the seventh inning Chattanooga took the lead after Ryan Walker’s one-out triple chased Ortega from the game. Walker scored on a Joe Maloney single that against the Shucker’s bullpen. In the ninth, it was Omar Bencomo who was summoned for his first save opportunity of the year. Although he allowed two singles, he finished the game and picked up the save by picking off one of the runners at first and inducing two easy ground balls around them. Chattanooga was outhit 8-5 on the day, but cashed in on two of their four opportunities with runners in scoring position to pull out the victory. MIRACLE MATTERS Fort Myers 7, St. Lucie 1 Box Score Early season stud left-hander Stephen Gonsalves took the mound for the Miracle on Sunday, and although he didn’t necessarily dominate as he had in other starts, he still picked up the win to improve to 5-1 on the season. He finished 5.1 innings, allowing just one earned run on four hits and a walk. He struck out three and if not for a Nick Gordon error in the sixth, may have been able to finish that inning. With one out and two men on base he was lifted for Brian Gilbert who induced an inning- ending double play. Fort Myers took a 4-0 lead in the top of the third inning on home runs from Austin Diemer (solo) and Trey Vavra (three run), and extended that lead to 6-1 in the fourth after a Chad Christensen double, an Alex Real single, and a Diemer sac fly plated two more. Max Murphy added the seventh run in the eighth inning with a solo home run. Gilbert finished a scoreless seventh inning as well and allowed only one hit in his 1.2 innings. Todd Van Steensel pitched the final two frames and allowed just one hit. The Miracle offense got multi-hit efforts from Gordon (2-4, R), Vavra (2-4, R, HR, 3 RBI, SB), Christensen (2-4, R, 2B), and Diemer (3-3, R, 2B, HR, 2 RBI). Murphy scored two runs and walked once in addition to his fourth home run of the season. KERNELS NUGGETS Cedar Rapids 1, Wisconsin 7 Box Score Cedar Rapids scored first in this one, taking a 1-0 lead in the second inning after a walk to Daniel Kihle and an error put him on third base, where he easily scampered home on a ground out from Sean Miller, but that would be it for the Kernels for the day as they managed just one hit the entire game against Wisconsin pitchers. The Timber Rattlers took the lead for good in the bottom of the second after three singles and a double steal (of second and home) put them up 2-1. Miles Nordgren made the start for the Kernels, and went just five innings. He allowed five runs (four earned) on seven hits and three walks, but did strike out eight. Anthony McIver pitched the sixth inning, and allowed two runs on three hits and two walks, including a home run to his first batter. Nick Anderson calmed the storm for the final two innings, going one-two-three in both, along with four strikeouts. Over his last six appearances, Anderson has pitched ten innings and allowed just one hit and one walk to opposing batters, while striking out eighteen of them. Quite a nice little stretch for the 2015 free agent out of the independent leagues. As can be imagined when you only tally one hit as a team, Cedar Rapids had few opportunities for more runs in this game, despite getting six walks. They were 0-4 with runners in scoring position and left seven men on base. The hit came off the bat of Zander Wiel in the first inning.

  10. Tyler Duffey was pretty good for the Twins again on Sunday afternoon as the parent club won their second straight game against the Cleveland Indians. In the minors on Sunday, one game was postponed, a lefty top prospect took to the mound in Florida, was outdone by a lefty newcomer to the system in another game, and one team struggled to collect any hits for most of the day, even though they took the no-hitter off the table early. To find out who did what and where on Sunday, read on!RED WINGS REPORT Syracuse @ Rochester - Postponed The Red Wings game on Sunday afternoon was postponed due to inclement weather.
