Top Gio Urshela News

  • Angels' Gio Urshela: Traded to Halos

    The Twins agreed to trade Urshela to the Angels on Friday in exchange for right-hander Alejandro Hidalgo, Jeff Passan of ESPN reports.

    Urshela finished third on the team in plate appearances in 2022 with 551 and was worth a couple wins above replacement by fWAR. However, he's due north of $6.5 million in his final year of arbitration eligibility, and the Twins ultimately decided to flip him for a young prospect rather than pay up. Urshela could play some shortstop for his new club or move across the diamond to first base, but Anthony Rendon's inability to stay healthy could open up plenty of playing time at third base as well.

  • Twins' Gio Urshela: Leads offense in loss

    Urshela went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run in Monday's loss to the White Sox.

    Urshela provided all the offense for the Twins on Monday with a two-run home run to right field in the top of the first inning. Additionally, with Minnesota down 3-2 in the top of the ninth inning, Urshela singled against Chicago closer Liam Hendriks to lead off the inning and was removed for a pinch runner before Hendriks stranded him and two other runners to end the game. The third baseman has been rounding out the season hot, batting .472 (17-for-36) with three extra-base hits, six RBI and eight runs scored over his last 10 games.

  • Twins' Gio Urshela: Knocks homer in win

    Urshela went 3-for-4 with a solo home run, an additional run scored and a double in Friday's 4-0 win over the Angels.

    Urshela fell a triple shy of the cycle Friday, striking out in the eighth inning to miss achieving the feat. It was still one of his better games of late -- his last three-hit effort was July 6. The third baseman has a .268/.309/.439 slash line with 11 homers, 46 RBI, 40 runs scored, 18 doubles and two triples through 94 contests this year. Urshela should still see most of the playing time at third base now that he's moved past an ankle injury, but the hot-hitting Jose Miranda could also see some looks there.

  • Twins' Gio Urshela: Starts after three-game hiatus

    Urshela (ankle) will start at third base and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the Blue Jays.

    Urshela is back in action after he was sidelined for the previous three contests due to a twisted ankle, which he suffered Wednesday against the Tigers, according to Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Assuming he avoids any setbacks in Sunday's contest, Urshela should serve as the Twins' primary third baseman moving forward, though he'll cede the occasional start at the position to hot-hitting rookie Jose Miranda.
