Twins 5, Rays 3: Late Dozier home run seals the victory

Brian Dozier came through with a two-run homer in the 8th inning to put the Twins ahead.

On an afternoon where the score was deadlocked for most of the game, the Twins struck late to take this matinee from the Rays by a score of 5-3.

While the score was deadlocked, the pace was gridlocked as starting pitchers Adalberto Mejia and Jake Odorizzi constantly had runners on base but both were able to successfully navigate through most of their troubles. Though each allowed over a baserunner per...

A recap of the Twins' minor league affiliates' results from May 26th, 2017.

Triple-A: Indianapolis Indians 11, Rochester Red Wings 6

Jeepers, how many frigging “Indians” or “Chiefs”-named teams are there? A lot, apparently. I guess there was tons of respect/love for Native heritage just floating around in the aether back when. Anyhoo, SP Nick Tepesch sucked, but you don’t care, because he’s 28-year-old roster filler and you know it. I’m sure he does, too. He’s putting off...

Nick Burdi to undergo Tommy John

RED ALERT!!! RED ALERT!!! RED ALERT!!!

Well, this is not great news. Highly touted Twins prospect Nick Burdi will be undergoing Tommy John Surgery, per multiple media outlets.

Burdi, the fireballing right-handed, had been discussed as a potential contributor to the Twins yet this year, and one of their most highly touted prospects. After what was essentially a lost season for Burdi last year due to injury, this has to be a frustrating set back.

Burdi last pitched on Sunday, in a 4-out outing...

Rays 5, Twins 2; Daaaaaaaaaanger Zone!

Chris Archer shares a last name with Sterling Archer, who says “Daaaaaaaaaanger Zone” on the animated FXX sitcom Archer.

The Twins, riding a 4-game winning streak and playing about as well as they’ve played in forever, ran head-on into Tampa Bay’s Chris Archer on Friday night. And it went...poorly.

Archer stymied the Twins through 7.2 innings, giving up just two runs while striking out 11 in a 5-2 Tampa victory. That’s a lot of strikeouts.

There’s really nothing more to it than...

Twins reportedly expected to pass on Hunter Greene at No. 1

A top-rated prospect heading into the 2014 draft and one of the most well-regarded arms in the Twins’ minor league ranks, Burdi’s career had already been slowed by...
