Twinsights: Phil Hughes not expected to miss a start

--Right-hander Phil Hughes should be able to make his next start, Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said, after taking an Adam Dunn shot off his right shin in Thursday’s loss. Hughes reported soreness but said it was “not as bad as he through it might be,” Gardenhire said. “I think he’ll make his next start," Gardenhire added. " I don’t think there will be any problem with that.” With Monday's off day and with Kyle Gibson expected to slot back into the rotation on Tuesday, the Twins have some wiggle room when it comes to Hughes' next start. Anthony Swarzak, who tossed five......

Rookie infielder Jorge Polanco had never been to Target Field before Thursday.

Twinsights: Kendrys Morales made an impact in Twins’ Latin Quarter

Kendrys Morales hit just one home run in the 39 games he played for the Twins, but his absence is already being felt in the Latin Quarter of the clubhouse. “We learned from him a lot,” Twins utility man Eduardo Nunez said. “He knows a lot about baseball and he would talk to us a lot. Sometimes it’s hard for him explain everything to an American guy because he doesn’t speak English, but for the Latin guys it was a good experience playing with him.” Nunez cited Spanish-speaking teammates such as Oswaldo Arcia, Eduardo Escobar and Danny Santana among those Morales most influence......

Twinsights: Jorge Polanco makes first trip to Target Field

Rookie infielder Jorge Polanco had never been to Target Field before Thursday. When he joined the Twins for four games in late June, they were on a road trip through Anaheim and Texas, and he was playing winter ball during TwinsFest. “It’s good to be here,” Polanco said. “It’s good to get to know the stadium.” Polanco arrived too late to take batting practice on Thursday but he was out there before Friday’s game, taking grounders at both shortstop and second base. He has been splitting time at both spots since returning to Class A Fort Myers at the start of July; all but......

Twins: Kurt Suzuki ready for anything as July 31 trade deadline looms

All-Star Kurt Suzuki knows he'll likely hear his name in trade rumors through July 31, but he isn't going to let it distract him from his job as the Twins' catcher.

Twinsights: Kurt Suzuki could be traded for a third straight season

All-Star catcher Kurt Suzuki knows he’ll likely hear his name in trade rumors through July 31, but he isn’t going to let it distract him from the business at hand. “It’s one of those things where it could happen,” he said. “There’s really not much to even think about. It’s part of the business. I’m just taking it day by day here and having fun with my teammates and going out and winning ballgames.” Nearly three decades ago, Don Baylor went to the World Series in three straight years with three different clubs: Boston Red Sox (1986), Twins (1987) and the Oakland A’s......

Postgame Twinsights: Kyle Gibson upbeat about his prognosis

Kyle Gibson wore a smile late Thursday night as he wrapped a bulky contraption around his lower back for support. "Everything's loosening up," the Twins right-hander said. "Getting back to normal." Will he recover fast enough to start Saturday against the Chicago White Sox? Twins manager Ron Gardenhire and general manager Terry Ryan did all they could to tamp down those expectations Thursday, but Gibson said he intends to throw from 120 feet and maybe even throw off a mound Friday to see if it's possible. "The competitive side of me would love to throw on Saturday," said Gibson, who l......
