  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Signs three-year extension

    Paddack (elbow) signed a three-year extension with the Twins on Wednesday.

    Paddack made five starts with the Twins last season and forged a 4.03 ERA before undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in May. The right-handed hurler is expected to miss the majority -- if not all -- of the 2023 season while recovering from the operation, but he should have a good chance of carving out a role in Minnesota's rotation beginning in 2024.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Inks one-year deal

    Paddack (elbow) and the Twins agreed on a one-year, $2.4 million contract Friday to avoid arbitration, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

    The right-hander underwent the second Tommy John surgery of his career in May and isn't expected to be available for at least the first half of the 2023 campaign. Prior to injuring his elbow, Paddack produced a 4.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 20 punchouts over 22.1 innings in five starts with Minnesota.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Undergoes second Tommy John surgery

    Paddack (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    The 25-year-old was already facing an extended absence after being placed on the 60-day injured list with elbow inflammation last week, and he's now undergone Tommy John surgery for the second time in his career. Paddack will miss the rest of the season and will also be sidelined for at least the first half of the 2023 campaign.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Moves to 60-day IL

    Paddack (elbow) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    While the Twins haven't yet revealed whether Paddack will require elbow surgery, he'll be unable to return to game action until at least mid-July. The right-hander posted a 4.03 ERA and 1.21 WHIP in 22.1 innings over his first five starts with the Twins but will be forced to miss significant time. Chris Archer and Josh Winder have been filling in as starters recently as the Twins' rotation deals with several injuries.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Placed on injured list

    Paddack (elbow) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

    The move was an expected one after it was announced earlier in the day that Paddack was seeking a second opinion on his elbow and could require surgery. The decision on his treatment plan has not yet been made, but he'll miss at least one turn in the rotation and likely several more. Jharel Cotton was recalled to take Paddack's place on the roster.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: May need elbow surgery

    Paddack is getting a second opinion on his inflamed right elbow, with surgery potentially on the table, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Paddack has been a serviceable starter for the Twins this season, posting a 4.03 ERA through five starts and a 1.69 FIP that suggested things could have been much better. Unfortunately, it looks like things might instead get much worse. He's yet to be placed on the injured list or even officially ruled out for his next start, but the fact that surgery is being considered suggests that a long absence could be coming. If Tommy John surgery winds up being the required procedure, Paddack would miss all of this season as well as the majority of the next, though even a lesser elbow surgery could still wipe out a large portion of this season.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Exits with inflamed elbow

    Paddack's early exit from his start in Sunday's game against the Athletics was due to right elbow inflammation, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Paddack recorded four strikeouts and was charged with three runs on five hits and no walks before he departed with one out in the third inning. The diagnosis of inflammation rather than tightness or a strain bodes well for Paddack's chances of avoiding an extended absence, though the injury could still be significant enough to force him to the IL. The Twins should have a better idea regarding the severity of his elbow issue after evaluating him in the next day or two.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Day ends early with apparent injury

    The Twins removed Paddack from his start Sunday against the Athletics due to an apparent injury. He struck out four over 2.1 innings and allowed one run on five hits and left two runners on base before exiting.

    Expect Minnesota to provide an update on Paddack's health later in the day after he was pulled from the contest following a visit to the mound from a team trainer. If Paddack is forced to miss time due to an injury, the Twins could condense from a six-man to five-man rotation rather than finding a replacement for him in the rotation.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Picks up first win

    Paddack (1-2) allowed one run on four hits and a walk over 5.1 innings Monday, striking out three and earning a win against Baltimore.

    Paddack yielded a pair of singles through four shutout frames before the Orioles got on the board with Ramon Urias' RBI sacrifice fly in the fifth. It was the third consecutive start in which he went at least five innings while allowing two or fewer runs. The 26-year-old is now sporting a 3.15 ERA and a 16:2 K:BB through 20 innings. Paddack is lined up to face Oakland at home this weekend.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Just short of quality start

    Paddack pitched 5.2 innings, surrendering one run on five hits and a walk while striking out six in Tuesday's victory over the Tigers. He did not factor into the game's decision.

    Paddack had his best outing of the season Tuesday, with his only blemish coming on a two-out double by Javier Baez in the bottom of the sixth inning, scoring Derek Hill and ending the starter's day on the mound. His six strikeouts were a season high and had the bullpen not blown it, he would have picked up his first win of the campaign. The right-hander's season numbers now sit at a 3.68 ERA and 1.16 WHIP over 14.2 innings.
