  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Terrific effort not enough for win

    Ryan (7-3) was dealt a tough-luck loss against the Guardians on Sunday, allowing two runs on two hits and a walk while striking out four over 6.2 innings.

    Ryan was cruising and had faced the minimum through 6.2 frames before walking Jose Ramirez and surrendering an RBI double to Josh Naylor for the first run of the game for either team. He was then replaced by Caleb Thielbar, who immediately allowed a triple to Andres Gimenez. Those two runs were enough to hand Ryan the loss despite a late rally from the Twins. The 27-year-old returned to dominant form after a blunder against the Astros earlier in the week, and now sits at a 2.76 ERA, 0.95 WHIP and 80:14 K:BB over 71.2 innings. He'll look to get back in the win column in a road test against the Blue Jays next weekend.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Stung by long ball in loss

    Ryan (7-2) took the loss Tuesday against the Astros, allowing five runs on four hits and three walks while striking out six over four innings.

    Ryan gave up two homers in the second frame, amounting to three runs for the Astros, and then surrendered a pair of runs in the third. He went fewer than five innings for the first time all year and gave up more than two earned runs for the first time since April 19. His three walks allowed were also his worst mark on the season thus far. Coming into Tuesday, Ryan had allowed just four home runs this year and had gone six straight starts without giving up a long ball. It was a bit of an uncharacteristic night for the 27-year-old, though he still managed to generate 14 whiffs. He now holds a 2.77 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 76:13 K:BB across 65 innings and will look to get back on track in a projected home start against the Guardians over the weekend.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Picks up seventh win

    Ryan (7-1) earned the win Wednesday, allowing one run on six hits and two walks over five innings during a 7-1 loss to the Giants. He struck out four.

    The five innings were a season low for Ryan, ending his streak of seven straight quality starts. Despite laboring a bit, he still picked up his seventh win and now holds a 2.21 ERA across 10 outings (61 innings). Ryan's four strikeouts Wednesday tied his second-lowest mark of the campaign, but his 70:10 K:BB remains elite. The soon-to-be 27-year-old's next start is projected to come during a three-game set in Houston.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Turns in solid outing

    Ryan did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing three runs (two earned) on seven hits and one walk over six innings against the Angels. He struck out nine.

    Ryan now has 19 strikeouts and just two walks over his last two outings, and he's given up only four earned runs in his past four starts. The right-hander also ranks third in the league with a stingy 0.89 WHIP and is tied for second with six wins. The 26-year-old is tentatively slated to face the Giants at home in his next appearance.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Fans 10 in win over Cubs

    Ryan (6-1) picked up the win in Saturday's 11-1 rout of the Cubs, scattering four hits and a walk over six scoreless innings. He struck out 10.

    The right-hander didn't let a runner get past second base and tied his season high in strikeouts in another dominant performance, generating 36 called or swinging strikes among his 102 pitches. Ryan has reeled off six straight quality starts and seven in eight outings to begin the season, and he'll take a 2.16 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 57:7 K:BB through 50 innings into his next start, likely to come on the road next weekend against the Angels.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Takes loss despite quality start

    Ryan (5-1) took the loss Sunday, allowing two runs on eight hits over six innings during a 2-0 loss to Cleveland. He struck out four and did not walk a batter.

    Ryan surrendered three straight singles to start the game and escaped the opening frame with two runs allowed. After the rocky first, he scattered four hits across five scoreless innings but still suffered his first loss, as Cleveland's pitching staff combined for a one-hit shutout. Sunday's outing marked just the third time over seven starts that Ryan has allowed multiple earned runs, and his 47:6 K:BB through 44 innings remains elite. The right-hander will look to continue his stellar beginning to the campaign next time out, which is tentatively scheduled for a three-game weekend set versus the Cubs.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Nearly unhittable over six frames

    Ryan allowed no runs on just one hit and two walks while striking out seven over six innings Tuesday against the White Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

    Ryan was rolling through the White Sox order. He had six strikeouts through four innings and finished with at least seven strikeouts for the fourth time in six starts. The lone hit he gave up was to Gavin Sheets in the second inning. He concluded his outing with a 12-pitch battle to Tim Anderson, which ultimately ended in a walk, before he got Andrew Benintendi to ground into a 4-6-3 double play to end the inning. He finished with 87 pitches and likely could have continued into the seventh, but manager Rocco Baldelli noted after the game that Ryan's velocity noticeably dropped from 93.3 mph versus Anderson to 89.8 mph versus Benintendi. With the heart of the order due up, Baldelli didn't want to risk putting him back out on the bump seeing that Ryan was running out of gas. The 26-year-old has been as dominant as they come so far this season. He now boasts a 2.37 ERA and is tied atop the league with a 0.76 WHIP to go with a 43:6 K:BB over 38 innings. He'll look to rack up his sixth win of the year in his next projected start against the Guardians over the weekend.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Misses out on two-start week

    Ryan is no longer scheduled to start Sunday's game against the Royals, as Sonny Gray is now in line to start the final contest of the Twins' homestand.

    After both Gray and Ryan started on Monday and Tuesday, respectively, versus the Yankees, the right-handers both appeared on track to make two starts during the Twins' seven-game week. However, with Kenta Maeda suffering a triceps strain in his start Thursday and landing on the injured list a day later, the Twins called up Bailey Ober from Triple-A St. Paul in a corresponding move and will quickly plug him into the rotation Saturday rather than waiting to use him the next time Maeda's turn came up. As a result, all the Twins' other four starters have been pushed back a day, resulting in only Gray getting a two-start week. Ryan should still line up for a two-step next week, as he's expected to face the White Sox on the road on Tuesday before starting the series finale in Cleveland next Sunday.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Fires seven strong frames

    Ryan (5-0) earned the win Tuesday against the Yankees, allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits and no walks across seven innings. He struck out seven.

    The right-hander surrendered single tallies during the first and fifth innings but otherwise blanked New York by scattering seven singles. Ryan dominated the zone and threw 72 of his 91 pitches for strikes, generating 14 whiffs. He's gone at least six frames in all five of his starts this season and has a 2.81 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 36:4 K:BB across 32 innings.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Notches fourth win of season

    Ryan (4-0) earned the win Wednesday, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk over six innings against Boston. He struck out three.

    Ryan now ranks fourth in MLB through Wednesday's games with a 0.76 WHIP. The right-hander has won all four of his starts, and he also ranks eighth in the league with a .167 opponent batting average. The right-hander is tentatively slated for a rematch with the Yankees in his next start after he gave up one run and struck out 10 in seven frames against them April 13.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Shuts down Bronx Bombers in win

    Ryan (3-0) earned the win Thursday, allowing one run on three hits and zero walks over seven innings against the Yankees. He struck out 10.

    Ryan pitched like a true ace in a hostile environment, as his only blemish on the night was giving up a solo homer to Anthony Rizzo. The former seventh-round draft pick has now recorded two straight starts with 10 strikeouts and has a 2.84 ERA and 26:3 K:BB in his first 19 innings of the season. He will look to continue his hot start to the season against the Red Sox next week.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Fans 10 in win

    Ryan (2-0) earned the win Saturday, allowing four runs on three hits and one walk over six innings against the Astros. He struck out 10.

    The third inning was the only trouble spot for Ryan as he allowed two singles and a walk to load the bases for Yordan Alvarez, who cashed in with a grand slam. Ryan buckled down from there and was rewarded with his second win in as many starts to begin 2023. He induced a whopping 19 swinging strikes on just 81 pitches Saturday, which is impressive against any team but all the more so against the reigning World Series champions. Ryan will take a 3.75 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 16:3 K:BB into a road start in Yankee Stadium next week.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Downs Royals in season debut

    Ryan (1-0) earned the win Sunday in Kansas City, allowing one run on three hits and two walks over six innings in a 7-4 victory. He had six strikeouts.

    The right-hander surrendered a solo homer to Edward Olivares during the second inning, but he was otherwise in complete control against the Royals. He generated only nine swinging strikes but still managed six strikeouts. Ryan will have a much tougher test next weekend as he lines up to pitch at home versus the Astros.
