  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Beginning rehab assignment

    Duran (oblique) will report to Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday to begin a rehab assignment, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    The 26-year-old progressed to facing live batters Friday and has now been cleared for game action. Duran will likely require at least a few appearances with St. Paul before joining the Twins, and he could be activated before the end of April. It remains to be seen if manager Rocco Baldelli will ease Duran into high-leverage work or if the right-hander will immediately reclaim the closer role once reistated.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Throws live BP

    Duran (oblique) threw a 21-pitch live batting practice session Friday and felt no discomfort, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Duran was supposed to throw 20 pitches Friday, but manager Rocco Baldelli noted that the right-hander "wanted an extra [pitch], so that tells you he's feeling good." It's another positive step for Duran, and he appears close to starting a rehab assignment. He began the season on the 15-day IL due to a right oblique strain he sustained in spring training.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Should face hitters Friday

    Duran (oblique) threw a 25-pitch bullpen session Tuesday and expects to face live batters Friday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    It's an encouraging step for Duran, who recently progressed to mound work after starting the season on the injured list with an oblique strain. The right-hander should face hitters a few times before moving on to a rehab assignment, and he could be back with the Twins before the end of April.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Could face hitters soon

    Duran (oblique) will throw another bullpen session Tuesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    He threw his first bullpen session since his oblique strain on Friday, and if he gets through that with no issues he could be cleared for live batting practice sessions. Duran would figure to require at least a couple live BP sessions before beginning a rehab assignment.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Throws bullpen session

    Duran (oblique) threw a bullpen session Friday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    The conditions at Comerica Park on Friday were rainy, but Duran got in some mound work anyway. It's the first time he's thrown a bullpen session since he was diagnosed with a Grade 2 right oblique strain back in mid-March. Duran figures to require another bullpen session or two before progressing to facing hitters and eventually going out on a rehab assignment. He would appear to have a shot to be back with the Twins before the end of the month.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Hoping for mound work Friday

    Duran (oblique) is aiming to throw a bullpen session Friday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Duran has been throwing pain-free on flat ground and it sounds like he's almost ready to try things out from the bump. He's early on in his throwing progression and will need a few rehab appearances before being activated, but a return before the end of April would seem to be possible.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Still no set timetable for return

    Duran (oblique) threw on flat ground from 105 feet Saturday and said afterward that he no longer has pain in his oblique, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Duran said that it's been "a lot of days" since he's felt pain in his oblique, but he's still unsure of what his return timeline will look like. A better picture likely won't come into focus until he's further along in his throwing progression. Griffin Jax has the Twins' lone save so far this season in Duran's absence.
