  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Takes another loss on homer

    Duran (0-2) took the loss Sunday against the Guardians, giving up a game-ending home run in the bottom of the ninth inning. He allowed three runs on one hit and two walks with no strikeouts in two-thirds of an inning.

    It was the second home run that Duran allowed in the late innings in a tied game in the three-game series during which the Twins were swept. Duran hadn't walked a batter in eight innings before Sunday, so this is probably a minor setback. The bigger worry for fantasy managers is that he's been used in the eighth inning against the heart of the opposing team's order several times since his return from the injured list, ceding the save chance to another arm (usually Griffin Jax) in the bullpen. While Duran as the top choice for saves, Twins manager Rocco Baldelli isn't afraid to use him earlier in games or in tied games on the road.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Tough no-decision Sunday

    Paddack notched a no-decision decision Sunday despite allowing just two runs on three hits and no walks over eight innings against the Guardians. He struck out six.

    Paddack bounced back after allowing five runs and 12 hits in his last start against the Yankees. He pitched into the eighth inning for the first time with the Twins and kept the Twins in the game until they lost in the bottom of the ninth inning.

  • Twins' Caleb Boushley: Recalled by Minnesota

    Boushley was recalled Sunday from Triple-A St. Paul.

    The right-hander will be sent up to the Twins while Jay Jackson was designated for assignment in a corresponding move. Boushley has recorded a 4.54 ERA and 1.14 WHIP with 38 strikeouts across 41.2 innings with Triple-A St. Paul and should fill a low-leverage role while up in the majors.

  • Twins' Byron Buxton: Not starting Sunday

    Buxton is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Guardians.

    Buxton went 1-for-4 with a run and an RBI in his return from right knee inflammation Saturday, and he'll sit for the series finale in Cleveland. Willi Castro will man center field Sunday for the Twins.

  • Twins' Jay Jackson: Gets designated for assignment

    Jackson was designated for assignment by the Twins on Sunday.

    The veteran reliever will be removed from the 40-man roster to free up space for right-hander Caleb Boushley, who was recalled by Minnesota in a corresponding move. Jackson will likely pitch for Minnesota's Triple-A affiliate in St. Paul if not picked up by another team.

  • Twins' Byron Buxton: Notches RBI in return

    Buxton went 1-for-4 with a run and an RBI in Saturday's loss to the Guardians.

    Buxton was activated from the injured list Saturday after missing over two weeks due to right knee inflammation. The outfielder helped Minnesota avoid being shut out, plating the team's first run in the ninth inning with a single to right field. Buxton is slashing .250/.298/.385 with a home run, 12 RBI, 13 runs and a stolen base through 104 plate appearances this season.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Surrenders five runs in loss

    Ober (4-2) took the loss against Cleveland on Saturday, allowing five runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out four batters over four innings.

    A first-inning, two-run home run by Jose Ramirez set the tone for Cleveland's offense, which ended up scoring in all but one of the four frames during which Ober toed the rubber. The right-handed hurler needed 91 pitches to get 12 outs and finished with his shortest outing since his disastrous eight-run, 1.1-inning loss in his first start of the campaign. Ober had rebounded impressively from that blowup prior to Saturday, posting a 2.16 ERA and 0.67 WHIP over his subsequent seven starts.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Not starting versus lefty

    Kirilloff isn't in the Twins' lineup for Saturday's game against Cleveland.

    Kirilloff will move to the bench Saturday as left-hander Logan Allen prepares to start on the mound for the Guardians. Willi Castro will fill the void in left field, batting third.

  • Twins' Trevor Larnach: Riding pine against lefty

    Larnach isn't in the Twins' lineup for Saturday's game against the Guardians.

    The lefty-hitting Larnach will step out of the lineup as the Twins prepare to face southpaw Logan Allen. Ryan Jeffers will move into the DH spot as a result, allowing Christian Vazquez to start at catcher while batting ninth.

  • Twins' Max Kepler: Sitting down versus lefty

    Kepler isn't in the Twins' lineup for Saturday's game against the Guardians.

    Left-hander Logan Allen will toe the slab for Cleveland on Saturday, meaning the lefty-hitting Kepler will retreat to the bench. Manuel Margot will take over in right field and bat sixth.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Resting versus LHP

    Julien isn't in the Twins' lineup Saturday versus Cleveland.

    With lefty Logan Allen set to take the mound for the Guardians, Julien and his career .545 OPS against southpaws will stay put in Minnesota's dugout. Kyle Farmer will get the nod to start at second base instead and bat eighth.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Optioned to St. Paul

    The Twins optioned Martin to Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday.

    With Byron Buxton (knee) returning from the injured list, Martin will be pushed back to Triple-A. During his latest stint in the majors, the 25-year-old utility player went 3-for-14 with two stolen bases and three runs scored in eight games.

  • Twins' Byron Buxton: Reinstated from IL

    The Twins reinstated Buxton (knee) from the injured list Saturday.

    Buxton went 0-for-6 with an RBI during his two-game rehab assignment, but he has seemingly fully recovered from his right knee inflammation and will return as Minnesota's everyday center fielder. The 30-year-old was slashing .343/.410/.543 with four RBI and eight runs scored across his last 10 games before getting injured.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Allows one run in no-decision

    Woods Richardson did not factor into the decision Friday against the Guardians, allowing one run on four hits and no walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out two.

    Woods Richardson looked much steadier in his outing Friday night, allowing just five baserunners by scattering four singles and issuing one hit-by-pitch. It also marked his first career start without allowing a walk, as he yielded at least one base on balls in each of his previous six starts. The 23-year-old right-hander is scheduled to pitch against the Nationals on the road in his next outing.
