Minnesota Twins: Time for the Phil Hughes era to end

The Minnesota Twins welcomed Phil Hughes back from injury during their weekend series against the Tampa Bay Rays. Phil Hughes start on Sunday marked the first time the Minnesota Twins starting pitcher has taken the mound since July 14, 2017. However, after a less than inspiring start, that should be his last start in a […] Minnesota Twins: Time for the Phil Hughes era to end - Puckett's Pond - Puckett's Pond - A Minnesota Twins Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Twins call up Tyler Duffey, option Alan Busenitz

Fresh bullpen arms are on the way.

The carousel o’ arms is starting to heat up again this season for the Twins. After suffering an embarrassing 14-1 loss last night to the Yankees — a game in which fifth outfielder Ryan LaMarre was forced to pitch — the Twins optioned reliever Alan Busenitz back to Triple-A Rochester. In Busenitz’s place, the Twins recalled pitcher Tyler Duffey .

Duffey spent large portions of the last three seasons with the Twins, and was considered by many to be an...

Yankees 14, Twins 1: Yes, that happened on national TV

Yeah... uh, this was pretty embarrassing to be quite honest.

It’s the same story.

The Twins played the New York Yankees tonight. The Twins got pulverized by the New York Yankees tonight. It wasn’t even close. The game was 14-1.

Twins starter Jake Odorizzi gave up two solo-home runs — one to Miguel Andujar, and another to Giancarlo Stanton. Didi Gregorius hit another home run off Rule 5 Draft Pick Tyler Kinley, and then Ryan LaMarre came in to pitch for the Twins. Yes. RYAN LAMARRE....

Berrios aims to follow up PR gem vs. Yanks

Fresh off throwing seven scoreless innings in his native Puerto Rico against the Indians on Wednesday, right-hander Jose Berrios (2-1, 1.63 ERA) will continue to build upon his impressive start to the season. He's thrown at least seven scoreless innings in three of his four starts, and he has walked one batter in 27 2/3 innings compared to 29 strikeouts. Berrios will oppose Yankees lefty CC Sabathia in Tuesday's 5:35 p.m. CT contest.

Twins prolong their struggles vs. Yanks in NY

In what was both a continuation of their struggles since the Puerto Rico series and their prolonged troubles at Yankee Stadium, the Twins fell behind early against the Yankees and couldn't recover in a 14-1 loss on Monday night that extended Minnesota's losing streak to four games. New York made it a blowout with three runs in the seventh and six in the eighth, giving the Twins their worst loss since July 19, 2015, in a 14-1 defeat against the A's.

Yankees fan wears shirt saying Brian Dozier’s hitting streak will end today, Brian Dozier’s hitting streak does not end today

Minnesota Twins second baseman Brian Dozier entered Monday night’s Twins-Yankees game with a 16-game hitting streak on the season, and 23 games dating back to last season. One fan at Yankee Stadium was very aware of the streak. So much so that the Yankees fan actually had a t-shirt made which read, “Dozier’s  streak ends today.” The game was nationally televised on ESPN, and the camera found the fan heckling Dozier while the 2015 All-Star was at the plate. And immediately, Dozier...

WATCH: Giancarlo Stanton finally hears cheers after mammoth HR

Giancarlo Stanton hasn’t gotten many cheers directed his way this season, his first as a member of the New York Yankees. In fact, the former Miami star has been repeatedly, and quite viciously, we might add, booed for his early struggles at the plate.That all changed on Monday night when Stanton went yard in a big way in the bottom of the fifth inning against the Minnesota Twins. #YANKSonYES https://t.co/j5v6kEs6Yupic.twitter.com/kC9L7TQ2zY— YES Network (@YESNetwork) April 24, 2018...

Buxton (foot injury) scratched from rehab game

Byron Buxton was scratched from Class A Advanced Fort Myers' lineup Monday, as he fouled a ball off his foot during Sunday's game and will be re-evaluated. Buxton was slated to play center field in rehab games on Monday and Tuesday before a potential return to the Twins on Wednesday. If the foot injury isn't considered serious, he could still return Wednesday in New York, but his status is unclear.

Minnesota Twins look to prove they can win against the New York Yankees

The Minnesota Twins will look to bounce back from a bad series in Tampa Bay and prove they can beat the dangerous New York Yankees. The Minnesota Twins had a rough weekend in Tampa Bay as they were swept by the Rays in their three game series.

Series Preview: Twins will attempt to salvage road trip against Yankees

Four games in the Bronx might be scary for our pitchers. Let’s hope the Twins bring their bats too!

Another day, another AL East match up for the Twins. This time they’ll be playing the Yankees. Most people would tell you that the Yankees are better than the Rays, which isn’t ideal seeing as the Twins just dropped their first series of the year to Tampa last weekend. The Yankees are somehow in third place in the AL East, at 11-9. Meanwhile, the Twins will be coming at 8-8, but in...

Minnesota Twins: How concerning is Logan Morrison’s slow start?

In many ways, the Minnesota Twins have had an up and down start to the 2018 season. For instance, the new-look bullpen that drew so much attention prior to the season has been both lights out at times and very inconsistent at others. But one player who has overwhelmingly struggled to produce for the entire start of the season is Twins newcomer Logan Morrison. Morrison was signed midway through spring training as a potential upgrade for the DH spot in the lineup. And after a career year in...

Rays 8, Twins 6: Carlos Gomez walks off the Twins

Phil Hughes was shaky early, but bullpen ultimately loses game for Twins.

Phil Hughes is finally back; he wasn’t awful but he wasn’t very good either. In the first inning, he threw a lot of pitches and surrendered a 2-run homer to C.J. Cron. Hughes would eventually work out of that inning after a mound visit settled him down somewhat.

In the 2nd inning Eduardo Escobar hit a solo home run to right to make the score 2-1. In the third, Eddie Rosario singled to score Brian Dozier from 2nd...

Rays 10, Twins 1: For Whom the Snell Tolls

Ask not.

This was one of those games that holds your attention for a while, but ends with you waking up an hour after the conclusion, groggy from a late-evening nap, wondering where you are, and whether or not Tyler Kinley is still giving up runs.

It might not look like it at first glance, but Kyle Gibson was halfway decent tonight. In a rare departure from the Good Gibby/Bad Gibby formula, Halfway-Decent Gibby was tagged with four earned runs, but he struck out seven, only walked one, and...

Bullpen struggles, bats stifled in Twins' loss

Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson pitched well enough to win Saturday night, but received little support from his offense and bullpen as the Rays ran away with a 10-1 victory at Tropicana Field.
