  • Twins' Louie Varland: Blanks Rockies in spot start

    Varland didn't factor into the decision Tuesday against Colorado, allowing one hit and one walk with three strikeouts across five scoreless innings.

    Varland was part of the Twins rotation to start 2024, but after falling to a 9.18 ERA after four starts, he was sent down to Triple-A. The 26-year-old also struggled in the minors, owning a 5.31 ERA before being called up Tuesday to give Minnesota's starters an extra day of rest. Varland made quick work of the Rockies, needing just 63 pitches to get through five innings. However, he didn't qualify for the win, as the Twins didn't score until the seventh inning.

  • Twins' Louie Varland: Recalled ahead of start

    The Twins recalled Varland from Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday.

    Varland will make a spot start Tuesday against the Rockies as the Twins give the regular members of their rotation some extra rest.

He's likely to be sent back down immediately after Tuesday's outing.

  • Twins' Louie Varland: Confirmed to start Tuesday

    Varland will be recalled from Triple-A St. Paul to start Tuesday's game against the Rockies, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    The Twins will promote Varland to the big leagues for a spot start as the club aims to give the rotation an extra day of rest, per Gleeman. Diego Castillo is set to be optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move. Varland has struggled in four starts for Minnesota this season, posting a 9.18 ERA and 2.16 WHIP with an 18:9 K:BB across 16.2 innings.

  • Twins' Louie Varland: Could make spot start Tuesday

    Varland and Caleb Boushley are the two leading candidates to be called up from Triple-A St. Paul to make a spot start Tuesday against the Rockies in Minnesota, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    The Twins will give each member of their rotation an extra day of rest between starts by adding a spot starter in the mix Tuesday. Varland hasn't had much success in the minors since he lost the Twins' fifth-starter role and was sent to Triple-A in April. He owns a 5.31 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 44:14 K:BB in 40.2 innings at St. Paul this season.

  • Twins' Louie Varland: Dispatched to Triple-A

    Minnesota optioned Varland to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday.

    The move comes one day after Varland turned in another ugly start in which he allowed four runs over just 2.2 innings in a 6-1 loss to the Tigers. Varland offered plenty of potential at the beginning of the season, but it hasn't manifested thus far, as he held a 9.18 ERA in four outings. Simeon Woods Richardson could be called up from Triple-A to take Varland's spot in the rotation later this week.

  • Twins' Louie Varland: Rotation spot in question

    Twins manager Rocco Baldelli wouldn't commit to Varland making another turn in the Minnesota rotation after Sunday's 6-1 loss to Detroit, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    The lack of commitment from the Twins comes as little surprise after Varland gave up four runs in 2.2 innings Sunday and now owns a 9.18 ERA and 2.16 WHIP through four starts. Varland is likely to head to Triple-A St. Paul in the near future, though he could move to the bullpen. Simeon Woods Richardson is the most likely candidate to enter the rotation if the Twins choose to pull the plug on Varland as their No. 5 starter.

  • Twins' Louie Varland: Falls to 0-4

    Varland (0-4) allowed four runs on three hits and four walks over 2.2 innings Sunday, striking out two and taking the loss against Detroit.

    Varland coughed up two runs in the first inning before Buddy Kennedy knocked him out of the game with a two-run shot in the third. It was Varland's shortest start of the year and bumped his ERA up to 9.18 through four outings. He threw just 35 of 74 pitches for strikes and forced one whiff. Varland's next outing is lined up to be on the road against the Angels.
