  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Dominant over six frames

    Woods Richardson (1-0) pitched six innings in a win over the Tigers on Saturday, allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out five.

    Woods Richardson cruised to his first win Saturday, going 1-2-3 through the Tigers' lineup in five of the six innings in which he appeared. The only slip-up came in the second, when he allowed a leadoff single and a walk to open the frame, which eventually led to a run coming home for Detroit on a sacrifice fly. It was a very impressive performance in the right-hander's first start of the season, and he certainly made a case to stick around in the big leagues.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Heads back to Triple-A

    The Twins returned Woods Richardson to Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday.

    As expected, Woods Richardson's stay with the Twins was only a temporary one, as he was summoned from St. Paul to serve as the 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader with the Tigers. He started the second game of the twin bill, earning the win while limiting Detroit to one run on two hits and one walk while striking out five over six innings. Woods Richardson should be the Twins' top choice the next time the big club is in need of a spot starter.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Making start during doubleheader

    The Twins will call up Woods Richardson from Triple-A st. Paul to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Tigers, Robert Murray of FanSided.com reports.

    The right-hander was rocked for seven runs over 3.1 innings in his last start at St. Paul. However, he's on the 40-man roster and will be on five days rest Saturday, so that's why Woods Richardson is getting the nod. He made one extended relief appearance last season with Minnesota, allowing five runs over 4.2 frames.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Optioned to Triple-A

    Minnesota optioned Woods RIchardson to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Woods Richardson was unscored upon in three appearances this spring, but he never seemed like a serious candidate for the Opening Day roster. The 23-year-old will be used in St. Paul's rotation at the start of the 2024 season.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Works on new arm angle

    Woods Richardson has worked on adjusting his arm angle this spring from a strictly 12 o'clock release to down a few slots, MLB.com reports. Woods Richardson threw a scoreless inning with a strikeout in his spring debut Monday against the Yankees.

    Woods Richardson took a step backward last season at Triple-A with a 4.91 ERA and 7.6 K/9 along with an increased walk rate to 4.8 BB/9. He also struggled in his one outing in the majors, giving up five runs in 4.2 innings. He's never had great velocity, so it was encouraging to see his fastball sit in the 92-94 mph range, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune. While he'll likely need to prove himself at Triple-A before getting another extended shot in the majors, he could be counted on this summer if Minnesota's rotation depth is tested.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Sent out after 2023 debut

    The Twins optioned Woods Richardson to Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    After starter Kenta Maeda lasted just two innings in Friday's 3-2 loss to Washington in the series opener while battling an ankle injury, the Twins summoned Woods Richardson from Triple-A on Saturday to give a fresh arm to an overtaxed bullpen. The 22-year-old right-hander ended up serving as an innings eater in relief in the Twins' 10-4 loss Saturday, covering 4.2 frames and striking out five but giving up five earned runs on seven hits and three walks. Woods Richardson will head back to St. Paul a day later with the Twins needing to open up a roster spot for Sunday's starter, Bailey Ober, who was called up from Triple-A in a corresponding move.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Recalled from Triple-A

    Woods Richardson was recalled Friday from Triple-A St. Paul, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Woods Richardson had struggled to a 9.00 ERA through two starts (seven innings) this season at the Triple-A level, but the Twins are in need of a fresh bullpen arm. The 22-year-old was a top-50 prospect a couple summers ago prior to being part of the Jose Berrios trade, but his stock has dropped since and he'll presumably work in long relief.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Optioned to minors

    Woods Richardson was optioned to minor-league camp on Saturday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Woods Richardson made his big-league debut in October of last year but didn't seem to have a real chance to push for a rotation spot this spring. The 22-year-old will continue his development at the Triple-A level, where he recorded a 2.21 ERA over seven starts last season.

The Twins will swap him off the 28-man active roster for right-hander Cole Sands, who will give the team a fresh arm out of the bullpen in Wednesday's season finale against the White Sox.

The right-handed rookie forced 10 whiffs while his fastball sat in the low-90s. He posted an impressive 2.77 ERA across 107.1 frames with Double-A Wichita and Triple-A St. Paul this season.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Promoted for big-league debut

    Woods Richardson had his contract selected from Triple-A St. Paul and will start Sunday against the Tigers, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    The 22-year-old was previously confirmed as the starter for Sunday's contest, and he's now officially been called up for his MLB debut. Woods Richardson split the 2022 campaign between Double-A Wichita and St. Paul, and he posted a 2.73 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 116:37 K:BB over 109.2 innings.

    Woods Richardson has had a dominant season in the upper levels of the minors for the Twins, combining to post a 2.73 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 116:37 K:BB across 108.2 innings with Double-A Wichita and St. Paul. He has thrown six innings in three consecutive starts with St. Paul, so he shouldn't have any limitations on his workload in his big-league debut.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Slated to debut soon

    Woods Richardson is expected to pitch for the Twins prior to the end of the regular season, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Woods Richardson was promoted to Triple-A St. Paul in mid-August and was dominant over the last month and a half, posting a 2.21 ERA and 0.86 WHIP in 36.2 innings over seven starts. The Twins haven't officially announced which day the right-hander will make his major-league debut, but the team hasn't yet announced a starter for Sunday's game in Detroit, so it seems likely that he'll draw that start. He was one of two prospects the Twins received in the trade that sent Jose Berrios to the Blue Jays last summer.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Gets bumped to Triple-A

    The Twins promoted Woods Richardson from Double-A Wichita to Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    The 21-year-old right-hander will move up to the Twins' top affiliate after supplying a 3.00 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 78:27 K:BB across 72 innings at Double-A. Woods Richardson was one two prospects the Twins received in last summer's trade that sent Jose Berrios to Toronto.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Back from COVID-19 IL

    Woods Richardson (illness) was activated from the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    Woods Richardson hasn't taken the mound for Wichita since June, but he's now cleared the COVID-19 protocols and should soon retake the mound. The 21-year-old has a 3.31 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 54:20 K:BB over 54.1 innings this season.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Dominant at Double-A

    Richardson has allowed one unearned run in 16.2 innings in three starts for Double-A Wichita with a 14:4 K:BB.

    Richardson had a 5.76 ERA with a troubling 5.2 BB/9 at Double-A New Hampshire before his trade to Minnesota from Toronto last season. He threw just eight innings for Wichita after the trade as he spent time on the U.S. Olympic team. It's just three starts, but his improved control is an encouraging sign.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Makes organizational debut

    Woods Richardson debuted for Double-A Wichita on Saturday, tossing 1.1 scoreless innings in his start against Arkansas. He gave up no hits and struck out two but issued three walks.

    After acquiring Woods Richardson in the July 30 deal that sent Jose Berrios to Toronto, the Twins have slow played the right-hander's integration into the organization. The 20-year-old's organizational debut was delayed in part due to his commitment to pitching for Team USA in the Olympic Games, and he wasn't immediately activated upon returning from Tokyo. Though he was finally cleared to pitch for Wichita over the weekend, Woods Richardson showed spotty control in the start, tossing only 19 of his 40 pitches for strikes. Consistently finding the strike zone had proved to be an issue for Woods Richardson prior to the trade; he submitted a bloated 12.9 percent walk rate in his 11 starts with the Blue Jays' Double-A affiliate in New Hampshire.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Deactivated at Double-A

    Double-A Wichita moved Woods Richardson to its development list Tuesday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    One of two prospects the Twins acquired from the Blue Jays in the July 30 deal that sent Jose Berrios to Toronto, Woods Richardson has yet to debut for his new organization after he played for Team USA in the Olympics. The 20-year-old looks like he may have to wait a while longer to do so, as the Twins may want to work with him to refine his mechanics after a string of poor outings at Double-A New Hampshire prior to being traded. Over his final five starts with the affiliate, Woods Richardson posted a 10.18 ERA, 2.02 WHIP and 28:16 K:BB in 20.1 innings.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Heading to Twins for Berrios

    Woods Richardson is part of the trade package going from the Blue Jays to the Twins in exchange for Jose Berrios, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

    Woods Richardson was Toronto's top pitching prospect following the graduation of Alek Manoah, though he's struggled at Double-A this season with a 5.76 ERA, 1.51 WHIP and 67:26 K:BB across 45.1 innings (11 starts). The right-hander is still only 20 years old and has shown swing-and-miss stuff with a 33.2 percent strikeout rate, but his command has been inconsistent with a 12.9 percent walk rate. Still, it's a strong return for the Twins, who will also receive shortstop/outfielder Austin Martin in the deal for Berrios, per Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca. Woods Richardson is currently playing with the U.S. Olympic team in Tokyo, so he won't be joining his new organization immediately.
