Found August 22, 2012 on Holdout Sports:
The Oakland A's infield turned a triple play in the fifth inning of Tuesday night's game at the O.co Coliseum against the Minnesota Twins.

Your browser does not support iframes.

With Twins runners on first and second, Twins batter Trevor Plouffe hit a sharp chopper to third base. A's third baseman Josh Donaldson was in perfect position to grab the grounder, step on third, turn and throw to Adam Rosales at second for the first two outs.

As Rosales stepped on second, he had to turn and leap over the slide of Twins runner Ryan Doumit before making the throw to first base, but still got it to first baseman Chris Carter in time to complete the triple play.

Report: Pavano won't pitch again in 2012

Carl Pavano's 2012 season is over. The Minnesota Twins right-hander will be shut down for the rest of the year after a new diagnosis on what was originally deemed a sore right shoulder, according to multiple reports. After seeing Dr. David Altchek, Pavano was diagnosed with a bruise on his humerus bone, an injury that requires time to heal. "The good news is it doesn...

Nick Blackburn Sent Back Down to Minors

Minnesota Twins’ starting pitcher Nick Blackburn will be making his second trip down to Triple-A Rochester after struggling yet again at the Major League level.  Blackburn has not won a start since being sent down to the minors and boasts a record of 0-4 in six starts since then. Blackburn is an awful pitcher.  Yes, that is awfully blunt and not the nicest thing to say, but it...

Denard Span’s claustrophobia prevented him from getting MRI

Minnesota Twins outfielder Denard Span missed his tenth straight game because of a shoulder injury.  He was able to take batting practice Tuesday, but was not healthy enough to lace them up Tuesday or Wednesday.  The frustrating part for the Twins – they don’t know what’s wrong with Span.  I’m no doctor, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night, so I know that...

Claustrophobia prevented Denard Span from completing MRI on injured clavicle

    The Minnesota Twins have been without the services of center fielder Denard Span since August 12. During the team’s 7-3 loss to the Tampa Bay Rays Span suffered injuries to his neck and shoulder diving for a fly ball and was initially expected to only miss a few games. Today he missed his [...]

Twins recall Hendriks to start Wednesday vs A's

The Minnesota Twins have recalled rookie Liam Hendriks from Triple-A Rochester to take the rotation spot opened when fellow right-hander Nick Blackburn was demoted to the minor league club. The Twins announced Hendriks will start Wednesday in Oakland, where Blackburn was originally scheduled to face the Athletics. Hendriks made eight starts over two previous stints this season...

In introduction to the “disabled list”

Day 9 of Denard Span being on the Twins’ active roster but unavailable to play because of an injury. — Aaron Gleeman (@AaronGleeman) August 21, 2012   There is a little known clause in Major League Baseball, a loophole, even, that states that players may be removed from the active roster via something called the “disabled list”. Basically,  you can still keep injured players...

Twins 7, Athletics 2

Josh Willingham drove in two runs against his former team, Joe Mauer hit a two-run single and the Minnesota Twins snapped Oakland's four-game winning streak with a 7-2 victory over the Athletics on Monday night. Brian Duensing (3-8) struck out seven and walked one in six innings to win for the first time in three starts after consecutive losses, helping the Twins bounce back...

Hendriks, Twins look to take series in Oakland

For a team undergoing plenty of change, the Oakland Athletics don't seem too bothered. A different result from Tommy Milone wouldn't hurt matters, either. The left-hander seeks his first victory in more than a month while looking to help Oakland win for the sixth time in seven games as it hosts the Minnesota Twins in the finale of a three-game set Wednesday. The Athletics...

Hendriks remains winless while with Twins

Right-hander Liam Hendriks had been very good this season at Triple-A Rochester. He was 9-3 with a 2.20 ERA in 16 starts with the Red Wings in 2012. That included 82 strikeouts and just 28 walks with a WHIP of 0.98 in a team-high 106 13 innings.But during a handful of starts with the Minnesota Twins, Hendriks hasn't been able to translate that success to the major league level...

Walbeck still follows Twins from afar

Twins career: Matt Walbeck, now 42, played with Minnesota from 1994-96. During his time with the Twins, Walbeck, a catcher, played in 275 games, the most he played for any team during his 11-year major league career. He batted .230 with 103 RBI and eight home runs during those three seasons. After breaking into the league in 1993 with the Chicago Cubs, Walbeck was traded to Minnesota...

Wesley Crusher Is Officially Less Infuriating Than the Minnesota Twins

Last night, I was so angry at the Minnesota Twins and the continued incompetence of their medical staff that, instead of watching and writing about baseball, I decided to actually sit down with my wife and watch three episodes of Star Trek: The Next Generation (and live-tweet the whole experience).  This is what the Twins have reduced me to: watching Wesley Crusher, the worst teenager...

A's 5, Twins 1

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Rookie Tommy Milone pitched eight innings, allowed two hits and a run, struck out five and walked only one batter as the Oakland Athletics beat the Minnesota Twins, 5-1, on Wednesday afternoon. Milone (10-9) became the second pitcher on the staff to notch double-digit victories (Bartolo Colon, 10), and the win ended a personal three game losing streak. Coco...

A 'Spark' For A's Minor League Hitters

WEST SACRAMENTO, CA - The Oakland A's haven't had a winning season since 2006. It’s no coincidence during those five down years, Oakland has struggled to develop hitters who have succeeded at the major league level. That has changed this season, as the team has received sizable contributions from promoted players such as Brandon Moss, Chris Carter, Derek Norris and most...
