Twinsights: Aaron Hicks isn’t sweating Sam Fuld’s arrival

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Having dispatched of Alex Presley with relative ease this spring, why should Aaron Hicks be all that concerned about the arrival of Sam Fuld via the waiver wire? After all, Fuld basically is Presley with better base-stealing instincts and less power. This time, however, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire and assistant general manager Rob Antony both used the Fuld acquisition as an opportunity to call out Hicks for some recent blips. Both the manager and assistant GM used the term "in a fog" to describe Hicks' play at times. While Gardenhire didn't want to talk about "the......

Twinsights: Gardy talks up new Twins outfielder Sam Fuld

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Before placing a waiver claim for veteran outfielder Sam Fuld on Friday, Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony asked manager Ron Gardenhire his opinion. "Absolutely," came the replay. "I like this guy. He can make us better." Gardenhire wasn't interested in discussing "the platoon stuff or anything like that," but he made it clear he hopes to incorporate Fuld into the mix as soon as possible. Even if that means taking away some at-bats from 24-year-old center fielder Aaron Hicks. "He can play anywhere in the outfield, he’s a leadoff-type guy, he can fly,......

Sam Fuld vs Darid Mastroianni (and Alex Presley)

Jesse takes a closer look at Minnesota's new outfielder. If you prefer to evaluate the defensive prowess of baseball players, look no further than this clip to see exactly how good Sam Fuld can be in the field. Your browser does not support iframes. Darin Mastroianni, as serviceable as he's been over the last couple of seasons, didn't seem capable of making this caliber of play. He made some good ones, but I don't remember seeing anything like this. But it's just one play, and truth be told, Fuld isn't likely to get any more playing time than Mastroianni had been. Fuld does have a high grit...

Twins Claim Sam Fuld, DFA Darin Mastroianni

We thought this might happen. Earlier in the week, we were told that the Twins didn't really see Sam Fuld as a fit. Well, it looks like that stance either A) has changed, or B) was a front to screen us from the true intentions of the front office. Because being interested in a fourth outfielder deserves a smoke screen, right? Darin Mastroianni was taken off of the 40-man roster in December before being re-added earlier this month, and the move to claim Fuld confirms that the organization is luke warm on Maestro. Barring a change, Mastroianni's 2014 with the Twins ends with an 0-for-11 line,...
