Twins: Class A pitcher Kohl Stewart scratched with sore shoulder

With Class A center fielder Byron Buxton now at five games missed (and counting) with a sore right wrist, the Twins got another dose of bad news about one of their top pitching prospects.

Taking a look at the Big Ten’s top 2015 NBA prospects

Getting a combined 12 players, including nine first rounders drafted the last two years was far from the norm for the Big Ten.

But the Big Ten was even deeper with NBA prospects the following year. Five players from the conference were drafted in the first round for the first time since 1990 (Michigan's Nik Stauskas and Mitch McGary, Indiana's Noah Vonleh, Michigan State's Gary Harris and Adreian......

Twinsights: Kohl Stewart scratched with shoulder soreness

With Class A center fielder Byron Buxton now at five games missed (and counting) with a sore right wrist, the Twins got another dose of bad news about one of their top pitching prospects. Right-hander Kohl Stewart was scratched from his scheduled start on Wednesday night for Class A Cedar Rapids due to "a little shoulder soreness," according to Brad Steil, Twins director of minor league operations. Stewart, the No. 4 overall pick in 2013, had posted a 1.86 earned run average his past eight starts, dating to June 1. However, he averaged fewer than five innings in those appearances, which......

MINNEAPOLIS: Indians newcomers Roberto Perez and Jose Ramirez had their fingerprints all over Wednesday’s series finale against the Minnesota Twins.But without a little help from the club’s veterans during the afternoon game played in front of 34,608 at Target Field, the Indians lost the game 3-1 and dropped the series two games to one.The loss seemed to sting a little too, as the Indians players showered, grabbed a bite to eat and packed their bags in relative silence before boarding a flight for Kansas City, the next stop on an important 11-game road trip against Central Division...

TFD: Vikings among NFL's best when it comes to under-25 talent

A Football Outsiders post on ESPN.com caught our attention this afternoon. Using a number of criteria, they attempted to rank the NFL teams from 1-32 when it comes to the best accumulation of talented players less than 25 years old. Now, having that many good, young players doesn’t necessarily translate to success, but Seattle was No. 1 on the list last year and won the Super Bowl; crazily enough, the Seahawks sunk to the bottom of the list this year because many of those top young players are a year older and no longer qualify. That is an indicator of just how arbitrary the 25-year-old...
