Player Outlook
Jose Miranda failed to capitalize on an opportunity to win an everyday role with the Twins amid a shoulder issue and his future role with the organization isn't clear. Despite dealing with a sore shoulder in spring training, Miranda began the season as Minnesota's everyday third baseman. He struggled and was soon sent to Triple-A on May 10 after hitting just .220/.275/.318. Miranda wasn't much better at Triple-A, where he hit just .255/.326/.360 in 39 games. His shoulder issues soon resurfaced and he had season-ending surgery in September. Miranda was a late bloomer in the minors where he hit .344/.401/.572 with 30 home runs between Double-A and Triple-A in 2021 at age 23. He then hit .287 with a .797 OPS in his final 106 games in 2022. The above-average power he displayed in 2022 cratered in 2023 (just a .092 IS0) though he maintained a good strikeout rate (15.8% K%). Meanwhile, Royce Lewis returned from a torn ACL and established himself at third base and several other corner infield prospects emerged. He'll need to show his sharp decline last season was due to the shoulder injury in order to factor into the corner infield mix again.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Takes seat Thursday

    Miranda is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the Yankees. Miranda had started at third base in seven of the previous eight contests, but he'll cede the hot corner to Willi Castro in the series finale. Though Miranda has posted an .832 OPS over his last 15 games, his opportunities could soon take a hit with Byron Buxton (knee) having kicked off a rehab assignment and potentially returning from the 10-day injured list as soon as this weekend. Castro has been serving as Buxton's primary replacement in the outfield, but Castro will likely see more time at third base at Miranda's expense once Buxton is activated.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Retreating to bench Monday

    Miranda is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mariners. Miranda should be an indirect beneficiary from a playing-time standpoint while Byron Buxton (knee) is on the 10-day injured list, as Miranda had started at third base in each of the previous three games while Willi Castro moved to the outfield to help cover for Buxton's absence. However, Castro will draw the start at the hot corner Monday, opening up center field for Manuel Margot.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Gets third straight start

    Miranda will start at third base and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Red Sox. Carlos Correa's return from the 10-day injured list Monday appeared to have pushed Miranda back into a reserve role, but the 25-year-old has since seen his playing time pick back up after Byron Buxton (knee) landed on the IL on Friday. With Willi Castro shifting to the outfield to cover for Buxton, Miranda has started at the hot corner in all three games this weekend.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Doubles twice in win

    Miranda went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI in Sunday's victory over the Angels. Miranda opened the game's scoring with an RBI single in the fourth inning. He later drove in Minnesota's 11th and final run of the game with an RBI double in the eighth. Miranda has collected multiple hits in three straight games, going 7-for-13 (.538) with four extra-base hits in the process. His slash line is up to .292/.320/.500 through 16 games.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Homers in win

    Miranda went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Thursday's 6-3 win over the White Sox. Miranda hasn't been able to get on base since getting called up April 8, as he entered Thursday hitting just .200 (7-for-35) with one walk in 13 games. He'll need to keep on a roll to get regular time at third base. However, Kyle Farmer is slumping even worse with a .297 OPS as the Twins struggle to find production at third base in the absence of Royce Lewis (quadriceps).

  • 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: 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: 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: 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: 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: 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.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Called up, starting Sunday

    The Twins recalled Miranda from Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He'll start at third base and bat seventh in the Twins' series finale in Baltimore. Miranda is back in the big leagues for the first time since early May, rejoining the Twins as a replacement on the 26-man active roster for Royce Lewis (oblique), who was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Though he wasn't able to build on his promising rookie campaign during his time in the majors earlier in 2023, Miranda's dormant bat has awoken at St. Paul. He finished June with a .287/.362/.436 slash line while striking out just 17 times in 23 games, and Miranda should now get another chance to step in as the Twins' primary option at third base while Lewis is on the mend.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Expected to be called up

    Miranda was scratched from the Triple-A St. Paul lineup Saturday and is expected to be called up after Royce Lewis left Saturday's Twins game with a strained oblique muscle, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports Miranda began the season as Minnesota's everyday third baseman, but he was sent to Triple-A on May 10 after hitting just .220/.275/.318. Miranda hasn't been much better at Triple-A, as he's hit just .255/.326/.360 in 39 games. However, he has shown some progress lately, hitting .305/.374/.476 with two home runs in his last 20 games.
