Blue Jays, using Twins leftovers, lead MLB in runs

Toronto is 19-24 this season. That’s not good at all, in case you wanted a strong take on losing records. But it has not been the fault, in the least, of the Blue Jays’ offense. Toronto actually leads all of MLB in runs scored with 223 (next-closest is 205 while the Twins are a very solid ninth at 183). Most of the damage has been done by mashers such as Josh Donaldson, Jose Bautista and Edwin Encarnacion, but Toronto is getting some supplementary help from some surprising sources: namely, from three former members of the Twins organization — Chris Colabello, Danny Valencia and Steve...

Twinsights: Tim Stauffer reinstated, Doug Bernier optioned

CHICAGO --In the wake of Wednesday's 13-inning game in Pittsburgh, which forced the Twins to use all seven members of their bullpen, veteran reliever Tim Stauffer has been reinstated from his rehab assignment. Veteran infielder Doug Bernier was optioned to Triple-A Rochester. In moving to a 13-man pitching staff for the first time this year, the Twins are choosing to ignore a dip in Stauffer's fastball, which topped out at 87 mph in his fourth rehab outing on Wednesday night against Durham. Stauffer threw 20 pitches and retired two batters, but he also allowed two doubles and a run in...

Mauer's HR most encouraging sign on night full of them

Not all games are created equal, and Wednesday’s 4-3, 13-inning Twins victory over the Pirates is one of those 50-50 games that feels particularly good to win. The Twins gave up a lead late … but they battled through extra innings and came away with a win that them at 23-17 after 40 games — roughly the quarter-pole in the MLB season. Tom Kelly’s old benchmark for knowing what you had in a team was 40 games. What the Twins have might not hold up for 162, but for now they are on pace for more than 90 wins instead of 90 losses and are 22-11 (two wins in every three games) since that...

PITTSBURGH--Just before Twins manager Paul Molitor sent up Eddie Rosario to pinch hit for starting pitcher Mike Pelfrey, the veteran righty turned to his skipper with a grin. "You know I'm 2 for 2, right?" Pelfrey said. Molitor just laughed. With a 3-1 lead through six innings and a pitch count at 93, Pelfrey had done his job on the mound. He did work at the plate as well in this 4-3 win in 13 innings, despite entering the night batting .098 in 305 career plate appearances. Pelfrey reached on an infield single and a sharp hit to left, marking the […] The post Postgame Twinsights: Sluggin'...
