Erik Johnson audition for 2016 rotation could start soon

MINNEAPOLIS - If the White Sox rotation hadn't remained so healthy this season - or if Jeff Samardzija had been traded - Erik Johnson very likely would have been in a Sox uniform sooner than Tuesday against the Twins at Target Field.

Twinsights: J.R. Graham (shoulder) plays catch, feels better

Twins reliever J.R. Graham (shoulder) played catch on Tuesday for the first time since being place on the disabled list a week earlier. A medical exam on Graham’s shoulder over the weekend found only weakness and some range-of-motion loss, the rookie Rule 5 pick said, rather than any structural damage. Graham still hopes to return this season. “I’m feeling good,” Graham said. “We’re on the right track.” Briefly --Double-A reliever Adrian Salcedo received a 100-game suspension without pay for a second positive test in violation of Major League Baseball’s ban on...

Twinsights: Twins haven't ruled out a promotion for Jose Berrios

Twins manager Paul Molitor said Tuesday the organization hasn’t ruled out a possible September promotion for top pitching prospect Jose Berrios. Despite the 21-year-old right-hander being passed over for one of five promotions doled out after Monday night’s game at Triple-A Rochester, Berrios could still join the Twins’ postseason push, possibly as a reliever. “I don’t think we have finalized everything we’re going to do here,” Molitor said. “Going forward, his name is definitely still being talked about.” While Berrios is the odds-on favorite to repeat as Twins minor league...

Twinsights: Burdi, Walker, Rogers head Twins' 2015 AFL class

Inside the numbers of Miguel Sano's first two months in the majors

Miguel Sano made his major league debut on July 2. That’s a little crazy to think about because he’s only been in the majors for two months, yet it’s hard to remember what the Twins’ lineup looked like without him. (Hint: It wasn’t as pretty. They averaged 4.22 runs per game before Sano joined the team and have averaged 4.52 runs per game since he came into the lineup). With the calendar page turned to September and the Twins firmly entrenched in a playoff race, here is a look at Sano’s first two months in the big leagues, by the numbers: THE OUTCOMES OF A SANO AT-BAT Every...

Minnesota Twins: Jose Berrios reportedly not among call-ups

Surging right-hander Jose Berrios did all he could Monday night to impress Twins general manager Terry Ryan on the sixth and final day of the executive's scouting trip to watch Triple-A Rochester.

Twinsights: Five earn promotions from Rochester; Jose Berrios not among them

Surging right-hander Jose Berrios did all he could Monday night to impress Twins general manager Terry Ryan on the sixth and final day of the executive’s scouting trip to watch Triple-A Rochester. For now, at least, Berrios will have to wait for his first crack at the big leagues, according to a person with direct knowledge. Berrios will remain with the Red Wings for one final 2015 start despite lowering his earned run average on Monday to 1.80 over his past nine starts (60 innings). In that span the 21-year-old Berrios has struck out 66 and walked just nine while […] The post Twinsights:...

Twinsights: Nick Burdi to headline Twins' 2015 fall league class

Nick Burdi will get a chance to build on the gains of a strong second half. The hard-throwing, right-handed reliever will headline this year’s class of Twins prospects at the Arizona Fall League, a person with direct knowledge said Monday. Burdi, 22, struggled mightily in his first crack at Double-A Chattanooga but he rallied nicely after being sent back to Class A Fort Myers for fine-tuning. Since the start of July, the former College World Series standout at the University of Louisville has worked 18 times, posting a 1.35 combined earned run average with the Miracle and the Lookouts. In...
