Twinsights: Wander Javier and the vagaries of international scouting

CINCINNATI--Nearly six years after signing Miguel Sano for $3.15 million, the Twins are still waiting for the Dominican slugger to arrive in the major leagues. If the Twins sign Dominican shortstop Wander Javier on Thursday for $4 million, as widely projected, how long would it take that 16-year-old to justify that investment? Twins general manager Terry Ryan, while not specifically addressing Javier or any other big-ticket members of this year’s international signing class, recently discussed the difficulties of scouting such youthful talent. As a handful of teams in recent years have...

Twins: Brian Dozier's numbers better than his all-star campaign

CINCINNATI -- Brian Dozier may or may not return to Great American Ball Park when the All-Star Game lands here in two weeks.

Twinsights: Brian Dozier has his manager's full all-star endorsement

CINCINNATI --Brian Dozier may or may not return to Great American Ball Park when the All-Star Game lands here in two weeks. Twins manager Paul Molitor, however, has no doubt his second baseman would be a worthy selection. “Absolutely,” Molitor said Monday. “I see him every day. I know what he’s meant to this team and I know the kind of year he’s having. He’s been an all-star for us, no doubt about that.” Dozier, who participated in last year’s Home Run Derby at Target Field but has yet to receive all-star designation, trails only Cleveland’s Jason Kipnis in combined...

CINCINNATI -- Twins right-hander Ricky Nolasco will travel to Charlotte, N.C., to have his ailing right ankle examined Thursday by Dr. Robert Anderson, co-chair of the NFL's foot and ankle committee.

Twinsights: Ricky Nolasco headed to Charlotte for another ankle exam

CINCINNATI --Twins right-hander Ricky Nolasco will travel to Charlotte, N.C., to have his ailing right ankle examined on Thursday by Dr. Robert Anderson, co-chair of the NFL’s foot and ankle committee. Nolasco, who last pitched on May 31, has had to cut short multiple bullpen sessions despite taking a cortisone shot and being fitted for orthotic inserts. Anderson, the team orthopedist for the NFL’s Charlotte Panthers, is considered a leading expert in the field. He is best known for operating on a number of NFL players diagnosed with a midfoot or Lisfranc injury. Recovery period can range...

Twins need to get their bats going against Reds

Joe Mauer is batting second in the order for just the fourth time this season, as manager Paul Molitor tries to figure out how to free the offense.

Lack of taking walks is haunting Twins

There are multiple reasons to explain the Twins’ recent offensive woes, and the most notable among them might be an expected one: they have cooled off considerably in the clutch. As of late May, the Twins were hitting .299 with runners in scoring position and .286 with two outs and RISP, and both marks were among the best in MLB. Just a month later, those overall numbers have dipped to .288 with RISP and .256 with two outs and RISP, meaning June has been pretty brutal for the Twins in the clutch. Clutch hitting, however, was something most of us figured wasn’t sustainable. That’s an ebb...

Twinsights: Wander Javier gets more Baseball America love

Thursday marks the start of the 2015-16 international signing period. So where does Dominican shortstop Wander Javier, expected to sign with the Twins for a rumored $4 million bonus, rate in Baseball America's newly released Best International Tools exercise? Javier, 16, is tied with countryman Ronny Brito for best infield arm and draws honorable mention of sorts for most exciting player. "For pure tools across the board, Wander Javier grades out higher than anyone in the class," Baseball America's Ben Badler writes. "In a showcase, he’s one of the most exciting players to watch, but in the...
