Top Twins News

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Homers, collects two hits

    Correa went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's 4-2 loss to the Rays.

    Correa singled in his first at-bat before crushing a leadoff homer his second time around to put the Twins up 1-0 in the top of the fourth. It was his seventh long ball of the season and his first since May 13 against the Cubs as the shortstop continues to try and gut it out while dealing with plantar fasciitis in his left heel. Correa's average now sits at .210 following the two-hit outing Thursday, and he's gone just 4-for-24 at the plate over his last six games.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Strikes out seven in loss

    Ober (3-3) took the loss Thursday, allowing four runs on three hits and two walks over 5.1 innings against Tampa Bay. He struck out seven.

    Ober (3-3) ran right through the Rays' lineup the first time around, striking out the side in both the second and third innings while not allowing a baserunner through the first three frames. The second time around didn't go as smoothly, however, as the right-hander surrendered three runs with two outs in the fourth, including a two-run bomb to Harold Ramirez. Ober has now lost his last three decisions, though his seven strikeouts Thursday tied his season high. He also produced an impressive 15 swings and misses in the contest.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Day-to-day with tight hamstring

    Twins manager Rocco Baldelli expressed optimism Thursday that Polanco (hamstring) will avoid the injured list, Do-Hyoung Park of reports. "He's still, I think, pretty strong in the muscle," said Baldelli. "But he definitely felt something. We're going to have to pay attention to it."

    Polanco tweaked his troublesome left hamstring while running the bases in the top of the first inning Thursday versus the Rays. The second baseman just returned June 1 from a nearly two-week stay on the IL for a left hamstring strain. He's considered day-to-day leading into the Twins' three-game weekend series at Toronto.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Nursing tight hamstring

    Polanco was pulled from Thursday's game versus the Rays with left hamstring tightness, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Polanco was hurt in the first inning while running the bases. It's the same hamstring which he injured previously, having just returning from the IL at the beginning of the month. If it's deemed an aggravation of that previous issue, another stint on the IL is certainly possible, although the Twins should offer more on the infielder's status after the game.

  • Twins' Jorge Polanco: Exits with apparent leg injury

    Polanco left Thursday's game at Tampa Bay in the first inning due to an apparent leg injury while running the bases, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Donovan Solano replaced Polanco in the lineup at DH. Polanco missed 12 days in May due to a hamstring injury, but it's unclear if Thursday's injury is related to the previous one.

  • Twins' Willi Castro: In leadoff spot Thursday

    Castro is starting at second base and batting leadoff Thursday against the Rays.

    This marks a sixth straight start for Castro, though it's his first look out of the leadoff spot. Jorge Polanco is taking a DH day with Byron Buxton (rib) now sitting on the injured list.

  • Twins' Michael Taylor: Swipes two bags in loss

    Taylor entered Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Rays as a pinch runner in the ninth inning, scoring a run and stealing two bases.

    The veteran outfielder couldn't have contributed much more without an official plate appearance, but his efforts on the basepaths went for naught. Taylor's glove has kept him in center field most of the season, and while his seven homers and 10 steals through 56 games does give him some deep-league fantasy value, his .226/.277/.406 slash line is unappealing in most formats.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Tagged for walk-off homer

    Duran (1-2) took the loss Wednesday as the Twins were downed 2-1 by the Rays, failing to record an out and serving up a game-winning solo home run to Randy Arozarena.

    The right-hander looked like he might be warming up to handle a save chance, as Minnesota scored its only run of the game in the top of the ninth inning and threatened to add more with the bases loaded and one out. Tampa Bay turned a slick double play to end the rally, however, and Arozarena then drove the second pitch he saw from Duran over the wall in right field. It's the first earned run the Twins' closer has allowed in over a month and the first time he's been taken deep since April 12, and on the season Duran still sits with a stellar 1.57 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 32:10 K:BB through 23 innings.

  • Twins' Pablo Lopez: Fans six in quality start

    Lopez didn't factor into the decision in Wednesday's 2-1 loss to the Rays, allowing one run on five hits and a walk over seven innings. He struck out six.

    The right-hander delivered his seventh quality start of the season in style, firing 63 of 92 pitches for strikes, but the Twins only managed three hits on the night and Lopez actually left the game in line for his fourth loss before his teammates eked a run across in the top of the ninth. It was a strong bounce-back effort after he gave up four or more runs in three of his prior four outings, and Lopez will take a 4.25 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 92:22 K:BB through 78.1 innings into his next start, likely to come at home early next week against the Brewers.

  • Twins' Willi Castro: Nabs fifth consecutive start

    Castro will start in center field and bat eighth in Wednesday's game against the Rays.

    Castro is in the lineup for a fifth consecutive game, this time replacing a resting Michael Taylor in center after Castro had most recently picked up a pair of starts apiece in left field and at third base. With Joey Gallo (hamstring) and Byron Buxton (rib) both recently landing on the injured list, Castro could be in store for a semi-regular spot in the Minnesota lineup so long as he's producing at the plate.

  • Twins' Michael Taylor: Heads to bench Wednesday

    Taylor is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays.

    Willi Castro will pick up a start in center field in place of Taylor, who appears to be getting a breather after he had started in each of the Twins' last eight games. Taylor has largely struggled at the dish in his first season in Minnesota, but he's getting on base at a .333 clip through his first five games of June and has contributed a solo home run and a pair of stolen bases.

  • Twins' Donovan Solano: Gets fifth straight start

    Solano will start at first base and bat fifth in Wednesday's game against the Rays.

    Solano will stick in the lineup for the fifth consecutive game, with the 35-year-old picking up three starts at first base and two at designated hitter during that stretch. While both Joey Gallo (hamstring) and Byron Buxton (rib) are on the 10-day injured list, Solano and Willi Castro could both have paths to steady playing time versus both left- and right-handed pitching.

  • Twins' Christian Vazquez: Continues to rotate with Jeffers

    Vazquez is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rays.

    Vazquez continues to work in a roughly even timeshare with Ryan Jeffers at catcher. The two backstops have now alternated turns behind the plate over the past 14 games, drawing seven starts apiece.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Back in action Wednesday

    Lewis (forehead) will start at third base and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Rays.

    After exiting late in Sunday's 2-1 loss to the Guardians when he suffered a laceration to his forehead along with a sore shoulder following his involvement in an on-field collision, Lewis sat out Tuesday's 7-0 loss in the series opener. Fortunately for the Twins, the 24-year-old looks like he'll be good to go moving forward after getting two full days off to recover from the injury. He should handle a near-everyday role at third base after posting a .680 OPS through his first six games since being activated from the 60-day injured list in late May.

  • Twins' Emilio Pagan: Extends scoreless streak

    Pagan allowed a hit while striking out two over two scoreless innings Tuesday against the Rays.

    Pagan has now put together 8.2 consecutive scoreless innings, allowing just two hits while striking out eight in that span. His ERA is down to 3.76 with a 1.14 WHIP and 25:8 K:BB through 26.1 innings this season. The 32-year-old Pagan was moved out of a high-leverage role after a shaky start to the season, but he looks to be working his way back up the Twins' bullpen hierarchy.
