Top Twins News

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Set for debut Sunday

    Woods Richardson will start Sunday's game against the Tigers, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    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 Triple-A 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' Gilberto Celestino: Absent from Saturday's lineup

    Celestino isn't starting Saturday against the Tigers.

    Celestino will get a day off after he went 2-for-8 with a double, an RBI, a walk and a strikeout over the last two games. Mark Contreras is starting in center field and batting ninth.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Retreats to bench Saturday

    Jeffers isn't starting Saturday against the Tigers.

    Jeffers was productive during Friday's series opener in Detroit, going 2-for-5 with a triple, a run and an RBI. He'll head to the bench while Gary Sanchez starts behind the plate and bats seventh.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Strikes out eight in win

    Ryan (13-8) earned the win against the Tigers on Friday, allowing no runs on five hits while striking out eight and walking one over six innings.

    Ryan tossed 65 of 91 pitches for strikes across six frames. He allowed six baserunners, but none of them reached home. This was a bounce-back game for the righty, who gave up three runs in four innings to the Angels in his last start. His Friday appearance was his third quality start in his last five games, all three of which resulted in wins. In five September starts, Ryan ended up with a 2.20 ERA and has lowered his season ERA to 3.55.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Mashes two-run homer

    Correa went 2-for-5 with a two-run home run in Friday's victory over the Tigers.

    Correa's two-run shot came in the seventh inning and sent Mark Contreras home. It was Correa's 22nd homer of the season, his seventh of the month, and his first since Sept. 15. The shortstop has found his stride at the end of the season, picking up hits in all but five out of 27 games in September and slashing .345/.405/.600. During the span of this month, Correa took his batting average from .269 to where it sits now at .287.

  • 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' Luis Arraez: Sits down Friday

    Arraez isn't in the starting lineup for Friday's contest in Detroit.

    After going 5-for-13 with an RBI during Minnesota's last series against the White Sox, Arraez will take a day off. Gary Sanchez will serve as the Twins' designated hitter in his place and bat fourth.

  • Twins' Matt Wallner: Sitting Friday

    Wallner isn't starting Friday against the Tigers.

    Wallner started the last three games and went 3-for-10 with a home run, a double, five RBI, a stolen base, two walks and seven strikeouts. Mark Contreras will take over in right field and bat ninth Friday.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Not in Friday's lineup

    Gordon isn't starting Friday against the Tigers.

    Gordon will get a breather after he went 2-for-16 with a double, three RBI and six strikeouts over the last four games. Jermaine Palacios is taking over at the keystone and batting eighth.

  • Twins' Louie Varland: No-decision against White Sox

    Varland allowed two earned runs on three hits and two walks while striking out three across five innings Thursday against the White Sox. He did not factor into the decision.

    Varland ran into trouble in the third inning, as he allowed all three of his hits and both of his earned runs. In three starts since entering the Twins' rotation Sept. 17, Varland has a 5.17 ERA with a 9:5 K:BB across 15.2 frames. He showed more strikeout upside in the upper levels of the minors, though his six swinging strikes across 72 total pitches suggest that may not translate immediately to the majors.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Hits bench Thursday

    Jeffers is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox.

    After being activated from the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Jeffers made his return to the lineup in Wednesday's 8-4 win and went 0-for-3 with a walk. He'll take a seat for the day game after a night game, but Jeffers should be part of a timeshare at catcher with Gary Sanchez for the final week of the season, if not the Twins' preferred option behind the dish.

  • Twins' Gio Urshela: Scores three times in win

    Urshela went 3-for-4 with a double and three runs scored in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

    Urshela notched a double off righty starter Johnny Cueto during his three-hit, three-run affair. The third baseman has been heating up of late, going 10-for-16 with two doubles, two RBI and five runs over his last four games.

  • Twins' Jake Cave: Two doubles during victory

    Cave went 3-for-3 with two doubles, an RBI and two runs scored in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

    Cave tallied two doubles in addition to a second-inning RBI single, all off righty starter Johnny Cueto. During his last eight games, the outfielder has turned in a .333 average with three doubles and a triple over 27 at-bats. The 29-year-old has been significantly more productive at home during 2022, recording a .755 OPS over 86 plate appearances compared to a .589 OPS over 64 plate appearances on the road.

  • Twins' Matt Wallner: Knocks in three during win

    Wallner went 2-for-3 with a double and three RBI in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

    Wallner gave the Twins a 3-2 lead in the second inning with a two-run double off righty starter Johnny Cueto and later tacked on an RBI single in the fourth. Following a recent 0-for-10 stretch, the outfielder has gone 3-for-7 with two extra-base hits and five RBI during his last two contests.
