Top Twins News

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Receiving Friday off

    Jeffers is out of the lineup for Friday's game against Oakland.

    Jeffers has yet to make consecutive starts behind the plate this season, and his playing time has slipped lately as he hasn't made a start at designated hitter since June 1. It's been a rough month so far for the 27-year-old, who has gone 3-for-30 through nine contests. Christian Vazquez will step in behind the plate Friday to catch for Simeon Woods Richardson.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Not in Friday's lineup

    Lewis is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Athletics.

    Lewis is in the midst of a six-game hit streak, during which he's gone 9-for-23 with two homers, but he'll take a seat Friday after making four straight starts. Jose Miranda will step in at the hot corner and bat fifth.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Remains red hot Thursday

    Correa went 3-for-4 with a two-run home run, an additional run and an additional RBI in Thursday's 6-2 win over the Athletics.

    Correa gave the Twins their first lead with a run-scoring single in the third inning and capped the scoring in the contest with a two-run homer to left field in the seventh. The veteran shortstop finished with his sixth multi-hit performance over his past eight contests, and he's slashing a jaw-dropping .545/.568/.758 with two homers, eight runs and nine RBI over that span. The hot stretch has pushed Correa's season slash line to .299/.363/.481, and he has six long balls, 31 RBI and 30 runs through 212 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Records quality start in victory

    Ryan (5-5) earned the win over Oakland on Thursday, allowing two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out five batters over seven innings.

    Ryan surrendered a two-run homer to Tyler Soderstrom in the second inning, but those were the only runs the A's managed against the righty hurler. Ryan finished with a stat line very similar to his previous outing, when he gave up two runs on three hits over seven frames versus Pittsburgh, though that performance came in a losing effort. The 28-year-old pitcher has four quality starts over his past five appearances and has posted a 2.73 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 32:7 K:BB across 33 frames during that span.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Back with big club

    The Twins recalled Martin from Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    He's switching spots with Alex Kirilloff, who has been optioned to St. Paul. Martin has slashed just .224/.289/.355 across 30 games at the big-league level this season. He could see some action versus lefties, but the 25-year-old's playing time is unlikely to be steady.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Dispatched to Triple-A

    The Twins optioned Kirilloff to Triple-A St. Paul after Wednesday's 17-9 win over the Rockies, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Kirilloff will head to Triple-A in order to get back on track after going 2-for-21 with nine strikeouts since the beginning of June, bringing his season slash line down to .201/.270/.384 through 178 plate appearances. The Twins have not yet announced a corresponding move for Kirilloff's demotion, but his absence will likely result in more time in left field for Trevor Larnach and more time at first base for Carlos Santana.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Homer, three hits in win

    Lewis went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer, a double and three total runs scored in Wednesday's 17-9 win over the Rockies.

    Lewis made his presence felt in Minnesota's 24-hit outburst -- he was one of eight Twins to record two or more hits, including a two-run homer off Angel Chivilli to extend the lead to 10-3. Since returning from a 10-week stint on the IL with a quad injury, Lewis has gone 9-for-28 (.321) with four homers and seven RBI across eight games.

  • Twins' Pablo Lopez: Rebounds for sixth win

    Lopez (6-6) earned the win Wednesday over Colorado, allowing two runs on five hits over five innings. He struck out five.

    It was an encouraging outing for Lopez after he allowed seven runs and six walks in a loss to the Yankees in his last start. The right-hander notably didn't allow a free pass Wednesday. Overall, it's been an inconsistent first quarter of the season for Lopez -- his ERA sits at 5.33 with a 1.21 WHIP and 84:17 K:BB across 14 starts (76 innings). The 28-year-old Lopez is currently lined up to face the Rays at home early next week in his next outing.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Records five hits

    Correa went 5-for-6 with three runs scored and an RBI in Wednesday's 17-9 win over the Rockies.

    Correa's first career five-hit game is the highlight of what's been a stellar run at the plate -- he's now 15-for-29 (.517) with a double and a home run over his last seven contests. The 29-year-old Correa is now slashing .290/.356/.459 with five homers, 28 RBI and 28 runs scored across 208 plate appearances this season.

  • Twins' Brock Stewart: Throws off mound

    Stewart (shoulder) threw five pitches off the mound Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Stewart threw off the bump for the first time since he went down with right shoulder tendinitis more than a month ago. He'll need to continue going through a ramp-up progression and will likely require at least a rehab appearance or two before returning from the 15-day injured list and slotting back into a setup role for the Twins.

  • Twins' Diego Castillo: Removed from 40-man roster

    The Twins designated Castillo for assignment Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    The Twins needed to free up a spot on their 40-man roster for the addition of right-hander Jay Jackson to the bullpen. Castillo had just been sent down to Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday following a brief stint with the big club in which he allowed two runs with a 3:7 K:BB over seven innings. If Castillo clears waivers, he will have the ability to elect free agency if he chooses to do so.

  • Twins' Jay Jackson: Gets call from Triple-A

    The Twins selected Jackson's contract from Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday.

    Minnesota cleared room for Jackson on the 26-man active roster by optioning right-hander Louie Varland to Triple-A and on the 40-man roster by designating right-hander Diego Castillo for assignment. The 36-year-old Jackson is joining the Twins for the second time this season after he was included on the Opening Day roster before he was DFA'd in May after turning in a 6.85 ERA over 22.1 innings. The veteran righty turned in three scoreless one-inning appearances for St. Paul to get the call back to Minnesota.

  • Twins' Louie Varland: Sent down after spot start

    The Twins optioned Varland to Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Varland made a successful spot start Tuesday against the Rockies, spinning five scoreless frames while taking a no-decision in Minnesota's 5-4 loss. The Twins will use his roster spot for a fresh relief arm, with Jay Jackson coming up from Triple-A to join the bullpen.

  • Twins' Jair Camargo: Healthy again for Triple-A club

    Triple-A St. Paul reinstated Camargo (forearm) from its 7-day injured list Tuesday.

    Camargo started at catcher in Tuesday's 3-2 win over Louisville, going 0-for-4 with two strikeouts. The 24-year-old hadn't played for St. Paul since April 27 due to a right forearm strain but got the green light to rejoin the Triple-A club after going 9-for-26 with a home run, two doubles and three walks over seven rehab games between the rookie-level Florida Complex League and Single-A Fort Myers.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Sitting versus lefty

    Kirilloff is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Rockies.

    The lefty-hitting Kirilloff will begin the contest on the bench as the Rockies send southpaw Austin Gomber to the hill. The Twins will use Carlos Santana at first base in Kirilloff's stead.

  • Twins' Max Kepler: Sitting versus lefty

    Kepler is out of the lineup for Wednesday's contest against the Rockies.

    With lefty Austin Gomber toeing the slab for the Rockies, the left-handed-hitting Kepler will get a breather. Manuel Margot will handle right field for the Twins.
