Postgame Twinsights: Updates on Josmil Pinto and Danny Santana

DETROIT -- Ricky Nolasco was warming up with Eric Fryer before the bottom of the first inning, fully expecting Josmil Pinto to emerge from the Twins dugout and take over catching duties, per the lineup card. As Nolasco used up his allotment of warmup pitches, both he and Fryer kept looking into the dugout until finally it became apparent that Pinto could not stay in the game. "I didn't know what was going on," Nolasco (6-12) aid after recording his first win in nearly three months and his first road win in nearly four months. "He just wouldn’t come out of [...] The post Postgame...

Twinsights: Josmil Pinto leaves with illness

DETROIT -- Twins catcher Josmil Pinto left Saturday’s game in the middle of the first inning with an unspecified illness. Pinto, who was standing on-deck as the top of the first ended, was replaced in the lineup by fellow backup Eric Fryer. Pinto had warmed up Twins starter Ricky Nolasco in the bullpen and made the long walk back to the dugout with Nolasco and Twins pitching coach Rick Anderson. Pinto was making just his seventh start at catcher since returning from Triple-A Rochester at the start of September. He was hitting .188 (6 for 32) with 13 strikeouts and a [...] The post...

Postgame Twinsights: Ricky Nolasco vows to come back "hungry" in 2015

Ricky Nolasco made his 13th and final home start of 2014 on Monday night. After getting blasted in a five-run fifth, the Twins’ Opening Day starter finished his Target Field debut season at 3-6 with a 4.46 earned run average. A smattering of boos was heard as Nolasco was lifted. “It’s been a terrible year,” Nolasco said. “I have high expectations of myself. There’s nothing really I could have done (in September). All I can do is try to stay healthy and avoid major injury and rebound next year. Some rest will be good for me. I’ll be ready to [...] The post Postgame Twinsights:...

Twins 3, Tigers 2: Twins win absurd ninth-inning walk-off

After a great game by Ricky Nolasco, Glen Perkins blew up in the ninth. Luckily, a certain former Twins closer did too. Ricky Nolasco pitched a great game tonight, giving up only five hits over eight shut-out innings. On the back of Kennys Vargas, who was only a double short of the cycle, Nolasco looked like he was in line for the win--but this game just had to get a little more exciting than that. After slumping recently, Kennys Vargas came back tonight and provided most of the offensive power for the Twins. With the score still 0-0, Kennys led off the 4th inning with a mega Kennys Vargas...

Postgame Twinsights: The Baltimore bunt that set up biggest blast

BALTIMORE -- Lost in a 33-hit afternoon was a bunt single for Baltimore's David Lough that should have given Ricky Nolasco a much-needed out in the sixth. Lough, who also sacrificed in the first, popped up his bunt this time along the third-base line. It was left to catcher Eric Fryer to race out from behind the plate and try to throw out Lough, which he couldn't. Adam Jones followed with a two-run double on an 0-2 pitch when Nolasco might have been able to work him more carefully with a base open, even though Nelson Cruz was due up next.
