Top Twins News

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Scratched with back stiffness

    Miranda was scratched from Minnesota's lineup ahead of Friday's game versus the Giants due to lower-back stiffness, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Miranda was originally slated to start at third base Friday, but instead it will be Brooks Lee at the hot corner with Willi Castro at second base, opening up a spot in the outfield for Matt Wallner. The severity of Miranda's injury remains uncertain, though the Twins may offer more details on his status following Friday's game.

  • Twins' Trevor Larnach: Idle against southpaw

    Larnach is out of the lineup for Friday's game against San Francisco.

    The lefty-hitting Larnach will avoid a same-handed matchup with Kyle Harrison as Willi Castro bats third and fills left field. Larnach is 2-for-21 (.095) with 11 strikeouts and six walks in July.

  • Twins' Max Kepler: On bench Friday

    Kepler is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Giants.

    Kepler will take a seat with the Giants starting southpaw Kyle Harrison. Willi Castro, Byron Buxton and Manuel Margot fill the outfield from left to right.

  • Twins' Brooks Lee: Playing second base

    Lee is batting eighth and playing second base Friday against San Francisco.

    Lee has played third base in all eight of his big-league starts due to Royce Lewis (groin) being on the IL. However, Lee will get his first look at second base Friday, the position he's likely to transition to long-term once Lewis is activated. The 23-year-old Lee has a .947 OPS with a pair of home runs in 35 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Out with shoulder strain

    The Twins placed Farmer on the 10-day injured list Friday due to a right shoulder strain, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Farmer hasn't seen a ton of action in July with nine at-bats in six games, and it's unclear when he picked up the shoulder injury. The 33-year-old will be eligible to be activated early in the second half but is without an official timeline for his return.

  • Twins' Jair Camargo: Brought up to bigs

    The Twins recalled Camargo from Triple-A St. Paul on Friday.

    Camargo will take the place of Kyle Farmer (shoulder) on the Twins' roster as Farmer heads to the IL. With Minnesota already dealing with injuries to Royce Lewis (groin) and Alex Kirilloff (back), Camargo will likely supply depth behind the plate and could see some DH work. The 24-year-old slashed .215/.277/.431 over 141 plate appearances with St. Paul.

  • Twins' David Festa: Moves back to minors

    The Twins optioned Festa to Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday.

    Festa will head back to the minors after a one-day stint with the Twins. He served as the club's 27th man for Wednesday's doubleheader with the White Sox and went unused out of the bullpen.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Homers in nightcap

    Correa went 4-for-7 with a solo home run and a walk in Wednesday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

    After going 3-for-4 in the matinee, Correa launched a solo home run off Drew Thorpe in the nightcap, tying the game,2-2. The 29-year-old shortstop now has at least one hit in 12 of his last 13 games, going 17-for-46 (.370) with five home runs in that span. With his current hot streak, Correa's boosted his slash line to .310/.379/.526 with 13 homers, 47 RBI and 50 runs scored through 312 plate appearances this season.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Nabs 14th save

    Duran picked up the save in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the White Sox, striking out a pair in a perfect ninth inning.

    Duran's held opponents scoreless in his last seven appearances, striking out seven while notching three saves in that span. Overall, the right-hander's ERA is down to 3.03 with a 0.98 WHIP and 28:10 K:BB across 29.2 innings this year.

  • Twins' Pablo Lopez: Better in no-decision

    Lopez allowed two runs on four hits and a walk over five innings in a no-decision Wednesday against the White Sox. He struck out five.

    While he failed to earn the win, it was a much better outing from Lopez after he allowed six runs on eight hits over five innings in his last start against the Astros. Overall, it's been an inconsistent year so far for Lopez, who'll carry a disappointing 5.11 ERA into the All-Star break. However, a 1.18 WHIP, 121:23 K:BB and an xERA of 3.38 indicate that Lopez could be due for some positive regression in the second half.

  • Twins' Bailey Ober: Falls to White Sox

    Ober (8-5) took the loss in the opening game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the White Sox, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out six.

    Ober held the White Sox to one run through his first five innings before Luis Robert launched a two-run homer in the sixth, putting Minnesota in a 3-0 hole in an eventual 3-1 loss. Still, Ober was able to deliver his fifth straight quality start -- he's posted a 2.17 ERA over 33.1 innings in that span. The 28-year-old Ober now sports a 4.14 ERA through 18 starts (100 innings) this year with an impressive 1.08 WHIP and 106:24 K:BB.

  • Twins' Trevor Larnach: Resting for second leg of twin bill

    Larnach is out of the lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the White Sox.

    The Twins are facing a righty (Drew Thorpe) for the second leg of the twin bill, but the lefty-hitting Larnach will head to the bench while manager Rocco Baldelli makes space in the starting nine for the hot-hitting Matt Wallner. Larnach went 0-for-3 with a walk in the Twins' 3-1 loss in Game 1, and he had started in each of the six games in July before that.

  • Twins' Willi Castro: Resting for second leg of twin bill

    Castro is out of the lineup for the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

    Kyle Farmer will get the nod at second base in the nightcap after Castro manned the keystone in the Twins' 3-1 loss in Game 1, going 0-for-3 with a walk. Castro is on the bench for the first time since June 20, ending a streak of 17 consecutive starts.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Rejoins lineup for doubleheader

    Farmer (finger) will start at second base and bat ninth in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with the White Sox.

    Farmer hadn't played in either of the Twins' last two games after he exited the team's 3-2 win over the Astros on Sunday, when he was hit on the index finger by a pitch. The injury is apparently a non-issue at this point, however, as Farmer will head back into the starting nine for the second leg of the twin bill. The right-handed-hitting Farmer typically makes most of his starts against left-handed pitching, but he'll face off against White Sox righty Drew Thorpe on Wednesday.

  • Twins' Max Kepler: Sitting out first game

    Kepler is out of the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

    Kepler will receive some rest for the first game of the twin bill but should be back in the lineup for the second contest. Matt Wallner will patrol right field for the Twins in the early game.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Out of lineup for early game

    Jeffers is absent from the lineup for the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader versus the White Sox.

    Christian Vazquez will start at catcher in the first game of the day, with Jeffers set to return to the lineup for the second contest. Jeffers comes into play Wednesday having slugged two home runs and driven in nine runs over his last eight tilts.

  • Twins' David Festa: Back up as 27th man

    The Twins recalled Festa from Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday.

    Festa will serve as the 27th man for Wednesday's doubleheader against the White Sox and will be available, if needed, in long relief. The young right-hander had previously allowed 12 runs over 10 innings in two starts for Minnesota this season.
