Twinsights: Eduardo Nunez catches Gardy’s eye in cameo

KANSAS CITY -- Eduardo Nunez was sent back to Triple-A Rochester after Thursday’s doubleheader nightcap, but Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was highly impressed with the veteran infielder in his one-game cameo. “I liked him,” Gardenhire said. “He snapped the ball out in left field, a rocket. Really quick feet over there, quick action. A live body, for sure. Took some good rips up there.” Nunez, 26, went 1 for 3 with a walk... Read more..

Solarte: “I don’t want to wake up”

Three weeks ago, Yangervis Solarte still had no idea whether he’d done enough. He knew he’d put up numbers in spring training, but he also knew Eduardo Nunez was the known commodity. Solarte was the new guy, the unfamiliar face, the guy with good exhibition numbers and absolutely no big league time. He’s since made […]The post Solarte: “I don’t want to wake up” appeared first on The LoHud Yankees Blog.

Pre-Double Header Notes: Nunez Called Up, Starters

That's fun. Twins Call Up Eduardo Nunez Thanks to the magic of double headers and roster rules, both the Twins and the Blue Jays are allowed to carry 26 players for today only. In the case of the Twins, they'll call up newly acquired infielder Eduardo Nunez. He has gone 7-for-18 with a home run in two starts (six games total) with the Red Wings. I'd imagine that Gardy would try to give Nunez a start in one of today's two games, simply to make the effort worth the time and money. Nunez will return to Rochester for Friday's game. Starting Pitchers Sorted Out The Twins will send out Kyle...

Twinsights: Eduardo Nunez to be called up, report says

Wednesday's postponement has created at least one short-term opportunity for an intriguing Minnesota Twins farmhand. Triple-A Rochester infielder Eduardo Nunez will be called up as the 26th man for Thursday's doubleheader nightcap, according to the Rochester Chronicle and Democrat. The plan is for Nunez to return to the Red Wings in time for Friday's game. Nunez, 26, was acquired from the New York Yankees on April 6 for Class A lefty Miguel Sulbaran. Nunez went 2 for 5 in Wednesday's loss to Pawtucket, driving in one run and adding a stolen base. Nunez has made two starts at shortstop......

Twinsights: Pedro Florimon isn’t worried about Eduardo Nunez down at Triple-A

Ask Pedro Florimon about the looming specter of Eduardo Nunez down at Triple-A Rochester, and the Twins’ struggling shortstop gives a shrug. “I don’t know anything about it,” Florimon said Saturday. “I just play my game.” Nunez, acquired Monday from the New York Yankees in a minor-league deal, has a reputation for lax defense but offers a little more pop with the bat.

Twinsights: Eduardo Nunez has two hits, error in his Rochester debut

Recently acquired utility man Eduardo Nunez made his 2014 season debut and his Triple-A Rochester debut as well Thursday night at Lehigh Valley. Nunez, 26, went 2 for 3 with a pair of singles but also committed a fielding error while making the start at third base. A sharp grounder went right through Nunez's legs. He was removed in the middle innings, but that was the plan for the former New York Yankees infielder who was acquired Monday for Class A lefty Miguel Sulbaran. Rochester manager Gene Glynn has said he plans to move Nunez around, playing him at several different positions. I......

Twins Acquire Eduardo Nunez from the Yankees

The Twins traded for the Yankees' infielder/outfielder/ultra-utility-guy-who-isn't-the-best-at-fielding-but-hits-better-than-Pedro-Florimon. The Twins on Monday acquired Eduardo Nunez from the Yankees for class A pitching prospect Miguel Sulbaran. If you're wondering who Miguel Sulbaran is, he's the guy the Twins got for trading Drew Butera to the Dodgers. Nunez, now the second Eduardo-named utility player on the Twins 40-man roster, batted .260/.307/.372 has played left field, right field, second base, third base, and shortstop. Despite the plethora of positions Nunez has played at, he's...
