The Rhino and Compass:
The Twins selected right handed pitcher Kohl Stewart in tonight’s draft. I know literally nothing about about him (or for that matter, any of the other prospects), so I did a Google search to find out a little about him. Let’s make some rush’s to judgment!
Um… Hold up. This was the Twins’ draft pick right, and not the Vikings? /double checks. Hmmm. Does Kohl know this?
Anyways, the Twins selected 14 year old right handed quarterback out of a high school in Texas. I like the fit with the Twins. He can talk to Joe Mauer about being a quarterback and then watch Mauer’s kids when Joe and wife need a night alone. Stewart looks like a very trustworthy youngster. I’m sure he is very excited to play baseball with the big kids.

MINNEAPOLIS The Minnesota Twins have a pretty good track record of drafting high school quarterbacks.
In 2001, they took the hometown kid, Cretin-Derham Hall quarterback and catcher Joe Mauer, with the No. 1 overall pick. Mauer chose baseball over football despite having an offer to play quarterback at Florida State. That decision has turned out OK for both Mauer and the Twins,...
Minnesota Twins have drafted right-handed pitcher Kohl Stewart with the 4th pick in the draft, and he is one of the more intriguing players in the draft. He is dual sport star and is committed to play both football and baseball at Texas A&M.
A premium football recruit as a quarterback, Stewart passed for 8,803 yards and 87 touchdowns in three high school seasons before committing...
The Minnesota Twins didn't wind up having enough room for Tyler Robertson this spring.
The team they face on the road this weekend does, though.
Four days after the Twins designated Robertson for assignment, the Washington Nationals claimed him off waivers. The left-handed pitcher was bumped to clear space for outfielder Clete Thomas, whom Minnesota called up from Triple-a Rochester...
Free agent outfielder Grady Sizemore recently resumed baseball-related activities, meaning he’s nearing the point where
he’ll consider signing his next contract. When this happens – likely closer to
the All-Star break – the Minnesota Twins are one of the teams that will have
interest in Sizemore, according to Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN.
Wolfson points out that...
MINNEAPOLIS The Minnesota Twins took another pitcher with their second-round pick, drafting LSU right-hander Ryan Eades with the 43rd overall pick.
Eades was 8-1 with a 2.81 ERA in 16 starts for LSU this season. He struck out 77 batters and walked 30 in 96 innings. The 6-foot-3, 200-pound Eades was originally drafted by the Colorado Rockies in the 19th round in 2010 before going...
MINNEAPOLIS For the second year in a row, the Minnesota Twins drafted a high school player with a top-four pick in Major League Baseball's draft. On Thursday, it was pitcher Kohl Stewart of Texas.
Stewart, who measures at 6-foot-3, 185 pounds, is a hard-throwing right-hander who pitched for St. Pius X (Texas) High School. He was widely regarded as the top prep talent in the...
A pair of streaks came to an end Wednesday in Kansas City. Neither of them were favorable for the Minnesota Twins.
The Twins entered Wednesday's game against the Royals having shut out their opponents for a stretch of 20 consecutive innings. That included two straight shutouts as Minnesota blanked the Seattle Mariners by a 10-0 final on Sunday and the Royals by a score of 3...
Although it was unforeseen, the Minnesota Twins will get their second day off of the week Friday.
As Tropical Storm Andrea moves up the East Coast, Twins and Washington Nationals officials decided to postpone the teams' scheduled 6:05 p.m meeting until Sunday, creating a day-night doubleheader at Nationals Park. The teams will square off at 12:35 p.m. as originally slated, then...
The Minnesota Twins have been on a nice roll since a lengthy skid last month.
P.J. Walters has been a nice addition to the club's rotation during that stretch.
Walters makes his first start at Kauffman Stadium on Wednesday night against a Kansas City Royals team trying to end its longest single-season home winning streak in team history.
Since winning his season debut May 25...
