Indians 8, Twins 2: Twins try to keep pace, completely lose it in the top of the 9th

Believe it or not, this game was a close 4-2 going into the ninth inning. Yohan Pino only made it 6.1 innings for the Twins tonight, giving up the lead early with three runs in the top of the third, and another run later in the top of the fifth. The Twins kept it close, scoring a run in the fourth and another in the seventh, but... yeah. Brian Dozier was the best news for the Twins tonight, hitting his 19th home run on the season, in addition to a single and a double. He was only a triple from the cycle. After that, the news gets... not so good. I mean, Oswaldo Arcia was able to score on a...

Twinsights: Jason Kipnis’ oblique battle could be instructive for Joe Mauer

Joe Mauer spoke only briefly with Cleveland Indians second baseman Jason Kipnis this week. Considering the oblique injury they now share in common, Mauer might want to pick his fellow all-star’s brain a bit. “I wouldn’t use the word ‘progress.’ I’d use the word ‘adjustment,’ “ Kipnis told Cleveland.com. “As far as the oblique goes, it’s going to be there all year. It’s not going to go away until the offseason.” Kipnis, who also swings left-handed, suffered his oblique... Read more..

Fresh off a surprise turn at the Home Run Derby, Twins second baseman Brian Dozier has picked up another honor. He was voted this year’s Twins winner for the Heart and Hustle Award, which is sponsored by the Major League Baseball Players Alumni Association and given to players for “their passion, desire and work ethic demonstrated both on and off the field.” “It’s something I definitely treasure,” Dozier said. “It’s a great award in my opinion.

RHP Danny Salazar recalled from minors to start Tuesday's game against host Twins

RHP Danny Salazar recalled from minors to start Tuesday's game against host Twins

The Indians roster carousel continued to turn Tuesday, as the club made a roster move to call up a starting pitcher for the evening’s game for a second consecutive day. A day after left-hander T.J. House was recalled to start, Tuesday’s move brought right-hander Danny Salazar back to the major league level after two months at Triple-A Columbus. To make room on the roster, right-handed reliever C.C. Lee was optioned back to Columbus. Salazar burst on the scene in dramatic fashion last season and gained so much trust by the Indians brass he started the wild card game against the Tampa...

Postgame Twinsights: Gardenhire reaches 1,000 career losses

Postgame Twinsights: --Sunday's loss was the 1,000th of Twins manager Ron Gardenhire’s career. He becomes the 50th manager to reach that unwanted milestone. Of those ahead of him, however, 26 are in the National Baseball Hall of Fame.. Just four other active managers have 1,000 career losses: Bruce Bochy (Giants), Buck Showalter (Orioles), Mike Scioscia (Angels) and Terry Francona (Indians). Those four have combined to win five of the past 12 World Series. "I'll say the same thing about 1,000 losses as I did about 1,000 wins," said Gardenhire, who reached the la... Read more..

Twinsights: Would Joe Mauer be sent on a rehab assignment?

Joe Mauer took dry swings on Sunday for the first time since landing on the disabled list June 2 with a strained right oblique. “That’s a good sign,” Twins general manager Terry Ryan said. “Everything is moving in the right direction.” It has not been determined yet if Mauer will go out on a rehab assignment once he’s fully recovered. “We haven’t discussed that yet,” Ryan said. “I’d have to talk with him too. I’m sure (Twins manager Ron Gardenhire) will and our trainers will ask him where he’s at and see whether he thinks he needs to go out. If (Mauer) thinks......

Twinsights: Danny Santana’s swing is “out of whack,” Gardy says

Rookie leadoff man Danny Santana was left out of Sunday’s lineup so he could work on his swing with Twins hitting coach Tom Brunansky. Santana, 23, went 0 for 11 with three strikeouts on a three-game rehab assignment at Class A Fort Myers. Since returning to the Twins on Friday to open the second half, Santana was 1 for 9 with six strikeouts. “He was flat-footing everything,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. “Coming off a knee injury, you get in some bad habits. He had no stride (Saturday). He was a little out of whack. David (Price) can do that to people.” Santana missed......

Twinsights: Twins great Tony Oliva turns 76

Twins special assistant Tony Oliva celebrated his 76th birthday on Sunday. The eight-time all-star remains a beloved figure inside the Twins clubhouse and throughout the team’s fan base. “He’s huge,” Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. “Look what he’s done. He has a track record. He should be in the hall of fame. That’s probably one of the great injustices in this game as far as Minnesota goes: Tony Oliva not being in the hall of fame. This guy was a great baseball player and a great ambassador for our game.” Oliva’s .304 lifetime batting average is the second-highest......
