  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Taking swings

    Lewis (hamstring) was swinging a bat Tuesday, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    The 24-year-old has been sidelined by a strained hamstring since Sept. 20, so his relatively quick return to swinging a bat is an encouraging sign. Lewis will be eligible to be reinstated from the injured list on the final day of the regular season Sunday, though it remains to be seen if he's expected to be healthy by that point.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Placed on injured list

    The Twins placed Lewis on the 10-day injured list Friday with a left hamstring strain, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    Lewis had to be taken out of Tuesday's game after tweaking his hamstring, and an MRI revealed a strain that will keep him out until at least the final day of the season, though there's no guarantee he'll be ready to play by then. Jordan Luplow will return to Minnesota to replace Lewis on the active roster.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Getting MRI this weekend

    Lewis (hamstring) will have an MRI when the Twins return home for this weekend's series against the Angels, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    As Hayes says, this situation is still very much to be determined, as a hamstring strain could mean the end of Lewis' regular-season play. The Twins are off Thursday, and Kyle Farmer figures to be an everyday player in the short term, especially with Carlos Correa (plantar fasciitis) landing on the injured list Wednesday.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Sitting with hamstring issue

    Lewis (hamstring tightness) is not in Wednesday's lineup against the Reds.

    It's no surprise that Lewis won't play in Wednesday's day game after exiting with trainers Tuesday night with what is currently being categorized as hamstring tightness. Fortunately, it seems he avoided re-injuring his right knee, which has been operated on twice. Lewis also spent time on the injured list this year with an oblique strain. Willi Castro is starting at third base and batting fifth. Minnesota has an off day Thursday prior to a weekend series at home against the Angels.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Dealing with hamstring tightness

    Lewis was removed from Tuesday's game against the Reds due to left hamstring tightness, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Lewis initially stayed in the game after tweaking his hamstring in the sixth inning, but he had to leave after further injuring himself during the eighth frame. Luckily, he's officially listed as day-to-day, so it appears Lewis avoided a significant injury. He could potentially miss a few games to recover before returning to Minnesota's lineup.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Exits with injury

    Lewis was removed from Tuesday's game against the Reds after suffering an apparent injury, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Lewis appeared to tweak something in his leg during the sixth inning, but he was taken out of the game after grimacing following a swing in the eighth. The Twins will take a look at him and should provide more information following Tuesday's game, but fantasy managers should view Lewis as day-to-day for now.

    Lewis went 1-for-2 with three walks, a grand slam, a second run scored and a stolen base in Friday's 10-2 win over the White Sox.

    Chicago's pitching staff wanted nothing to do with Lewis after he drove a Jesse Scholtens fastball over the fence in left field in the second inning with the bases loaded, giving Minnesota a lead it wouldn't relinquish. The 24-year-old third baseman also set a few different records with the blast. Per Joe Pollizze of, his four grand slams in 2023 established a new franchise record for the Twins, while Sarah Langs of notes that Lewis is the first player in MLB history with five slams among his first 16 career homers. His four grand slams in the last 18 games is also a new record, shattering the prior mark for the shortest such stretch -- 39 games by Don Mattingly in 1987.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Gets aboard twice in return

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Activated from injured list

    Lewis (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list Tuesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Lewis wound up missing more than six weeks of action with a Grade 2 left oblique strain, but he's ready to roll now after going 5-for-12 with a couple home runs in four rehab games with Triple-A St. Paul. While the 24-year-old might not have a set starting position, the fact that he can play all over the infield and the Twins also don't have a regular designated hitter bodes well for his chances of regular playing time. Lewis should be scooped back up in any leagues where he was dropped.
