Sano continues to rehab, but return is uncertain

Twins third baseman Miguel Sano continues to rehab his left shin in Minnesota, but manager Paul Molitor said it's becoming more and more unlikely he'll be ready to return before the end of the regular season on Oct. 1.

Series Preview: Twins look to pad playoff lead against Tigers

A four game series against one of baseball’s worst teams may be just what the Twins need.

Nothing quite takes the wind out of the sails of a Twins postseason run like getting swept by the Yankees, but it’s not over yet. In fact, with the Angels loss last night, the Twins still have a 1.5 game lead for the second wild card spot—which is exactly where they were before bombing in the Bronx. They didn’t lose any ground at all.

Sounds like the perfect time for a four game series against...

Yanks over Twins in WC Game? Not so fast

The Yankees' record against the Twins since 2002 -- and this includes four soul-crushing postseason series for Minnesota -- is 89-33. And while this might give Twins fans nightmares ahead of a potential meeting in the Oct. 3 American League Wild Card Game, I can't help but think that Yankees fans might be more nervous.

Eduardo Escobar is one of the best utility players in the AL

At the plate and in the field, Escobar is having a career year.

I don't know if you all have noticed, but Eduardo Escobar is having a career year. In his ninth big league season, Escobar has set or tied career highs in home runs, triples, RBI, stolen bases, and walks. His .254/.312/.448 triple slash (through September 18th) is better than his career slash of .253/.301/.395 too.

He's also one of only two players on the team, the other being Ehire Adrianza, to play six different positions on...

Despite getting swept in NY, Twins look ahead

Even with a new regime and a lineup full of youngsters, Yankee Stadium remains the Twins' house of horrors.

Twins fall in finale, unable to add WC cushion

Aaron Judge and Gary Sanchez launched back-to-back homers and Didi Gregorius also went deep as part of an extra-base-hit barrage, helping the Yankees complete a series sweep of the Twins with an 11-3 victory on Wednesday afternoon at Yankee Stadium.

WC-seeking Twins turn to Mejia in Detroit

As the Tigers won four straight American League Central titles from 2011-14, the Twins were left trying to play the role of spoiler down the stretch against Detroit. But the tables have turned, as it's now Minnesota competing for its first postseason berth since 2010, and the Tigers are the ones looking to hurt the Twins' chances.

New York Yankees 11, Minnesota Twins 3: Bronx Bomb

We are shocked — shocked! — by this outcome.

Before rectalysing what went wrong in this game, let’s remember the good times, shall we? Top of the third, 0-0, one out. Kennys Vargas gets an infield hit. Jason Castro singles, and speedster Kennys takes third. Brian Dozier walks. Then Joe Mauer comes up. We’ll turn now to our ace gamethread reporter, McLoser Asshat, Jr.:

Joe lines to left, foul ball ... bad memories

Latest On Miguel Sano

The Twins are currently 1.5 games up on the Angels for the second Wild Card spot and have a favorable remaining schedule — seven games against the rebuilding Tigers — but they may be without their top slugger over the final 11 games. Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press and Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com write that Miguel Sano looks to be running out of time to make a regular-season return. Sano hasn’t played since fouling a ball into his shin on Aug. 19 — a seemingly innocuous...

The Twins’ potential playoff roster

Whilst perusing FanGraphs earlier this past week, an article caught my eye: AL postseason roster decisions. The Twins weren’t featured as they aren’t a lock for the playoffs just yet, but what if they were? Some players that remained on the roster for most of the season might not make the cut, while others that barely sniffed any action could be an important figure in a playoff game. The following is my attempt to identify who could see the postseason as a Twin, assuming they not only...

Forced to throw strikes, Berrios has off night

For as good as Jose Berrios has been in his breakout second season, the 23-year-old still has outings where he clearly fights his command and struggles as a result.

Colon out to deny Yanks, boost Twins' cause

The Yankees shuffled their rotation for the final game of their three-game series against the Twins at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday, as right-hander Luis Severino will take the mound instead of right-hander Masahiro Tanaka. Minnesota will counter with veteran right-hander Bartolo Colon.

Twins go cold in Bronx, can't add to WC lead

CC Sabathia recovered from a shaky first inning to provide six solid frames and Brett Gardner drove in a pair of runs on Tuesday evening, leading the Yankees to a 5-2 victory over the Twins in another meeting of the top clubs in the American League Wild Card hunt.

Yankees 5, Twins 2: In play, out(s)

You can’t spell “Twins” without “Win.” Unfortunately that factoid is irrelevant tonight.

The Twins were winning at one point, but I honestly forgot how that happened because this game was 48 hours long, not including the one hour rain delay to start the game. Thanks Yankees!

Let’s check here. It seems the Twins started the game with 3 singles and then Eduardo Escobar double played in a run. That sounds pretty Twinsy. Jose Berrios did not have his control undies on today, so in...

The Twins really bungled the firing of minor league manager Doug Mientkiewicz

A Major League Baseball team one of its firing its minor league managers isn’t an uncommon occurrence, but doing so while he’s in the middle of hurricane cleanup, and six weeks after you offered him a coveted Arizona Fall League managerial spot that he only turned down because his wife was undergoing heart surgery? That’s a little more unusual, and much more problematic. But it’s allegedly what happened with the Minnesota Twins’ firing of Doug Mientkiewicz, manager of their high-A...
