  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Back at third base for Game 3

    Lewis (hamstring) will start at third base and bat cleanup Tuesday in Game 3 of the ALDS against the Astros.

    Lewis had been limited to DH duties through the Twins' first four postseason games after straining his left hamstring Sept. 19, but he feels healthy enough to man the hot corner as the best-of-five ALDS shifts from Houston to Minnesota. Edouard Julien will fill the DH role and bat leadoff Tuesday at Target Field as Jorge Polanco covers second base and hits second.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Likely to remain at DH

    Lewis (hamstring) is likely to remain at designated hitter for the ALDS against the Astros, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Lewis and the Twins are hoping he'll be available to play third base at some point, but his left hamstring still isn't 100 percent. For now, the club will just be happy to have his bat in the lineup. Lewis homered twice and also drew two walks during the Twins' AL Wild Card Series versus the Blue Jays.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Smacks two home runs in win

    Lewis went 2-for-3 with two home runs and a walk in Tuesday's 3-1 win over the Blue Jays in Game 1 of the AL Wild Card Series.

    Lewis provided all the offense in this contest, as he had Kevin Gausman's number from the start and made sure to take advantage in both the first and third innings. The rookie third baseman had been on a power binge of sorts heading into the postseason, with five home runs in his 15 games to close out the regular season. During that span, he slashed .315/.422/.630 with 12 runs and 19 RBI.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Included on Twins' WC roster

    Lewis (hamstring) is on the Twins' AL Wild Card Series roster, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Lewis hasn't played since Sept. 19 due to a left hamstring strain, but he went through a workout with his teammates Monday to show the club he was ready to go. He is expected to be limited to designated hitter duties, at least initially, as he comes back from injury.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Should be ready for Tuesday

    Lewis (hamstring) is expected to be listed on Minnesota's roster for its upcoming AL Wild Card Series against Toronto, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Lewis sounded unsure about his availability when speaking with media earlier in the day, but Hayes notes that he demonstrated his health during Monday's workout. Hayes also acknowledged that it's likely Lewis will be limited to the DH role, but it would still be a big boost for the Twins to get his bat back in the starting nine. Expect the official roster to be revealed Tuesday morning.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Uncertain for wild-card round

    Lewis (hamstring) acknowledged that he's uncertain if he'll be available to play Tuesday in Game 1 of the Twins' wild-card round series with the Blue Jays, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Lewis made his final appearance of the regular season Sept. 19 before landing on the 10-day injured list with a left hamstring strain. He was able to take part in simulated games last week, but he said Monday that he still isn't yet running at 100 percent. Even though speed is a big component of Lewis' game, the 24-year-old has been one of the Twins' more productive batters when healthy, so he could still be activated for the wild-card round to serve as a designated hitter. The Twins will likely re-evaluate Lewis early Tuesday before deciding on his status for the upcoming three-game series.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Plays simulated game

    Lewis (hamstring) played in a simulated game Wednesday at Target Field, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    He even hit a homer, per Park. Lewis has made a swift recovery from the mild left hamstring strain he suffered last Tuesday and could be activated from the injured list when first eligible this Sunday, the final day of the regular season. The 24-year-old is a key potential run producer for the Twins as they head into the playoffs.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Taking swings

    Lewis (hamstring) was swinging a bat Tuesday, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    The 24-year-old has been sidelined by a strained hamstring since Sept. 20, so his relatively quick return to swinging a bat is an encouraging sign. Lewis will be eligible to be reinstated from the injured list on the final day of the regular season Sunday, though it remains to be seen if he's expected to be healthy by that point.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Placed on injured list

    The Twins placed Lewis on the 10-day injured list Friday with a left hamstring strain, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    Lewis had to be taken out of Tuesday's game after tweaking his hamstring, and an MRI revealed a strain that will keep him out until at least the final day of the season, though there's no guarantee he'll be ready to play by then. Jordan Luplow will return to Minnesota to replace Lewis on the active roster.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Getting MRI this weekend

    Lewis (hamstring) will have an MRI when the Twins return home for this weekend's series against the Angels, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    As Hayes says, this situation is still very much to be determined, as a hamstring strain could mean the end of Lewis' regular-season play. The Twins are off Thursday, and Kyle Farmer figures to be an everyday player in the short term, especially with Carlos Correa (plantar fasciitis) landing on the injured list Wednesday.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Sitting with hamstring issue

    Lewis (hamstring tightness) is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Reds.

    It's no surprise that Lewis won't play in Wednesday's day game after exiting with trainers Tuesday night with what is currently being categorized as hamstring tightness. Fortunately, it seems he avoided re-injuring his right knee, which has been operated on twice. Lewis also spent time on the injured list this year with an oblique strain. Willi Castro is starting at third base and batting fifth. Minnesota has an off day Thursday prior to a weekend series at home against the Angels.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Dealing with hamstring tightness

    Lewis was removed from Tuesday's game against the Reds due to left hamstring tightness, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Lewis initially stayed in the game after tweaking his hamstring in the sixth inning, but he had to leave after further injuring himself during the eighth frame. Luckily, he's officially listed as day-to-day, so it appears Lewis avoided a significant injury. He could potentially miss a few games to recover before returning to Minnesota's lineup.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Exits with injury

    Lewis was removed from Tuesday's game against the Reds after suffering an apparent injury, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Lewis appeared to tweak something in his leg during the sixth inning, but he was taken out of the game after grimacing following a swing in the eighth. The Twins will take a look at him and should provide more information following Tuesday's game, but fantasy managers should view Lewis as day-to-day for now.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Knocks another homer

    Lewis went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's loss against the Reds.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Makes history with another slam

    Lewis went 1-for-2 with three walks, a grand slam, a second run scored and a stolen base in Friday's 10-2 win over the White Sox.

    Chicago's pitching staff wanted nothing to do with Lewis after he drove a Jesse Scholtens fastball over the fence in left field in the second inning with the bases loaded, giving Minnesota a lead it wouldn't relinquish. The 24-year-old third baseman also set a few different records with the blast. Per Joe Pollizze of, his four grand slams in 2023 established a new franchise record for the Twins, while Sarah Langs of notes that Lewis is the first player in MLB history with five slams among his first 16 career homers. His four grand slams in the last 18 games is also a new record, shattering the prior mark for the shortest such stretch -- 39 games by Don Mattingly in 1987. Lewis is putting together a massive September, slashing .288/.393/.615 through 14 games with five homers, 13 runs and 21 RBI as the Twins close in on an AL Central title.

The rookie has just two hits in 15 at-bats over his past four games, but both have left the park, and he's racked up five RBI during that span. Lewis is slashing an impressive .300/.355/.530 with 13 homers, 46 RBI, 32 runs and five thefts over 217 plate appearances on the campaign.
