  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Blasts first homer

    Miranda went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI during the Twins' 7-4 loss to the Orioles.

    Miranda came into the game with just two hits in 13 at-bats but topped that mark with three hits Monday to go along with a 411-foot blast to left-center that represented his first home run of the season. The 26-year-old Miranda was recalled on April 8 with Monday's game representing his fifth start and seventh appearance since rejoining the big club. He followed up a strong rookie campaign in 2022 by struggling significantly last season and failing to make the club out of camp this season. However, until Royce Lewis (quad) returns, Miranda should continue to see a decent amount of playing time.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Won't be regular third baseman

    Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said Monday that Miranda could play third base "maybe a couple times a week," Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Miranda is starting at third base Monday versus the Dodgers after being recalled earlier in the day, and there is an opening for playing time there while Royce Lewis (quad) is sidelined. However, the Twins see Miranda as mainly a first baseman and designated hitter at this point, and those positions are more difficult to crack right now. In other words, it sounds like he'll be a part-time player for the time being.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Joining big-league club

    The Twins recalled Miranda from Triple-A St. Paul on Monday.

    The 25-year-old missed out on Minnesota's Opening Day roster but will join the big club less than two weeks into the season. Miranda is unlikely to see significant playing time, but he could be an injury away from a more regular role since Royce Lewis (quadriceps) is already out for the foreseeable future.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Hits homer in Triple-A opener

    Miranda went 2-for-4 with a home run in Saturday's season-opening win for Triple-A St. Paul. He started at first base.

    There's been conflicting reports about whether Miranda is at full strength to be able to throw from third base after offseason surgery to remove scar tissue from his right labrum and rotator cuff. He's set to play first base for St. Paul initially this season. As a result, he's not seen as a short-term option to help fill the void at third base with the Twins after the quad injury to Royce Lewis. Miranda could help force the issue if he continues his hot start to the season.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Sent down to St. Paul

    The Twins optioned Miranda to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    The addition of Carlos Santana pretty much blocked Miranda's path to an Opening Day roster spot. He's probably best off going back to the minors for a while, anyway, following offseason surgery to remove scar tissue from his right labrum and rotator cuff.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Will focus on first base

    Miranda (shoulder) will focus on playing first base when he returns to the field this week, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Miranda has been limited to DH so far this spring. "We think he can really fit [there, but] it's a position he hasn't played a ton," said manager Rocco Baldelli.

    Miranda underwent offseason surgery to remove scar tissue from his right labrum and rotator cuff. He's 3-for-8 with a double in three games this spring. Miranda appears set to begin the season at Triple-A barring an injury elsewhere on the roster, so it will be interesting to see if he's limited to first base in the minors as well.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Collects two hits Monday

    Miranda (shoulder) went 2-for-3 with one double, one RBI and one run scored in Monday's exhibition against the Yankees. He started at DH and the Twins plan to ease him into action for a few weeks before using him at first base or third base, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Miranda underwent offseason surgery to remove scar tissue from his right labrum and rotator cuff, and he's since been cleared for game action. He looked sharp in his chances at the dish Monday, as he collected a base knock in the top of the first inning and doubled home the first run of the game in the third. Now that Miranda has returned to health, he'll set his sights on earning playing time either at the hot corner behind Royce Lewis or at first base, where he'll compete with Carlos Santana and Alex Kirilloff.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Begins throwing

    Miranda (shoulder) began throwing in mid-January, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Miranda had surgery in early October to remove scar tissue from his right labrum and rotator cuff. He was cleared to begin hitting in early December and recently progressed to hitting off a pitching machine and throwing. The plan is for Miranda to be eased into game action this spring at designated hitter before eventually playing the field. All 35 of Miranda's starts during his injury-shortened, disappointing 2023 season came at third base, but his best shot at playing time in 2024 could be at first.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Starts hitting

    Miranda (shoulder) started hitting within the past week, but he's not expected to begin throwing until January, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Miranda underwent surgery on his shoulder in September, which was a cleanup procedure, according to the Star Tribune. That development is considered a positive, since his shoulder issues were thought to be more serious. Miranda struggled last year by hitting just .211/.263/.303 in 40 games before his season ended in July due to the shoulder injury. Miranda began last season as Minnesota's everyday third baseman, but his struggles and shoulder injury have clouded his outlook for 2024. He'll potentially compete for a role at first base this spring, but he may need to prove himself again at Triple-A.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Undergoing shoulder surgery

    Miranda will undergo surgery on his injured right shoulder Thursday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Miranda is having a consultation Wednesday before undergoing the procedure Thursday. More information regarding the exact nature of the operation and a potential rehab timetable is expected after the surgery, but at the very least it's going to end his 2023 campaign. Miranda has been sidelined since mid-July with a right shoulder impingement.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Moves to 60-day IL

    The Twins transferred Miranda (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list Friday.

    Miranda was already expected to be out until late September, but his move to the 60-day IL ensures he's out until at least Sept. 15. His spot on the 40-man roster will be filled by Andrew Stevenson, who was selected from Triple-A St. Paul on Friday.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Starts hitting of tee

    Miranda (shoulder) has started hitting off a tee and throwing at about 50 percent from 60 feet, The Athletic reports.

    Miranda received a platelet-rich plasma injection for his injured right shoulder in mid-July. He's finally showing some signs of improvement and said he hopes to begin a rehab assignment in three weeks. He could return in late September if all goes well, though the Twins may not need him on the active roster.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Plasma injection in shoulder

    Miranda received a platelet-rich plasma injection in his injured right shoulder and will be shut down for at least a week before the Twins determine the next course of action, John Shipley of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    An MRI exam on Miranda's shoulder revealed an impingement. It sounds like he'll be out several more weeks as a result even in a best-case scenario.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Heading to IL with shoulder issue

    Miranda is likely to be placed on the 10-day injured list due to a sore shoulder, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    MIranda was scratched with the issue before Friday's game. Miranda has been bothered by the shoulder since spring training and it's a bad sign he had a setback after resting during the All-Star break. Matt Wallner is likely to be recalled from Triple-A, with Kyle Farmer, Willi Castro and Donovan Solano likely to split time at third base until Royce Lewis returns.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Officially placed on injured list

    Miranda was placed on the 10-day injured list Saturday due to a right shoulder impingement.

    Miranda was scratched Friday due to shoulder soreness, an issue which turns out to be serious enough to sideline him for at least 10 days. The young third baseman has dealt with shoulder issues this season dating back to spring training, which may partially explain his poor .211/.263/.303 slash line. Matt Wallner was recalled to take his place on the roster.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Scratched with sore shoulder

    Miranda was scratched from the lineup for Friday's game against the A's with right shoulder soreness, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Miranda has been battling soreness in his right shoulder since early in spring training. The extent of his latest setback is unknown at this time. Alex Kirilloff will enter the lineup at first base as Kyle Farmer moves to third base and Donovan Solano slides to second.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Sitting against righty again

    Miranda is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles.

    Miranda is on the bench for the Twins' third straight matchup with a right-handed starting pitcher after going hitless in nine at-bats since he was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on July 2. Though he had a clear path to a regular starting role at third base after Royce Lewis (oblique) was moved to the injured list, Miranda's struggles have opened the door for the hot-hitting Donovan Solano to pick up more work at the position.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Taking seat Wednesday

    Miranda is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest versus the Royals.

    Miranda started each of the last three days at third base after coming up to take Royce Lewis' (oblique) roster spot but went hitless in each game. He'll now take a seat for this one in favor of Donovan Solano.
