MINNEAPOLIS All offseason, the main emphasis for the Minnesota Twins was to improve their starting rotation. To do so, the team signed two veteran free agents and traded for another pitcher in hopes of rebuilding what had been the American League's worst starting staff in 2012.
Though it's still early in the 2013 season, it appears those offseason changes have made a difference...
MINNEAPOLIS Last season, at the ripe old age of 38, Twins infielder Jamey Carroll was an every-day player. He played in 138 games, just shy of his career high.
One year later, Carroll's role in Minnesota has changed drastically. Through the first two weeks of the 2013 season, the 39-year-old Carroll is no longer an every-day player. In fact, he's made just two starts this...
MINNEAPOLIS Lost in the shuffle of Joe Mauer's four-hit night on Tuesday was the performance of the guy hitting ahead of him in the Twins' lineup.
Second baseman Brian Dozier led off against the Angels, his first career start as Minnesota's leadoff man. His 2-for-4 night was enough to convince manager Ron Gardenhire to put Dozier back in the leadoff spot for the second...
As a new feature of the wildly successful “At the Ballpark” app available at MLB.com, Minnesota Twins fans now will be able to upgrade their seats while attending games at Target Field, which is already outfitted with free Wi-Fi.

The Minnesota Twins made some relatively under-the-radar moves yesterday. They placed left fielder Darin Mastroianni on the disabled list while recalling Oswaldo Arcia to fill out the 25-man roster. Mastroianni had been battling a sore left ankle and was scratched from last night's game before eventually being placed on the DL.
Darin Mastroianni is headed to the DL...
The Minnesota Twins still have a lot of work to do with their starting pitching.
The weather has been an early challenge, too.
The Twins postponed their series finale against the Los Angeles Angels on Wednesday night about 15 minutes before it was supposed to begin due to steady rain that was turning to snow.
The forecast was calling for more snow and strong winds Thursday. The...
The Minnesota Twins can't catch a break from the weather.
The Twins' series opener in Chicago against the White Sox on Friday was called off due to a forecast of cold, windy weather. It's the third time this week that bad weather has kept Minnesota off the field:
On Sunday, the Twins' home game against the Mets was washed out and on Wednesday, their series finale...
The Los Angeles Angels and Minnesota Twins have had their series finale at Target Field postponed by rain.
The decision was made about 15 minutes before the scheduled start of Wednesday night's game. The Twins won the first two games of the series to drop the Angels to 4-10, matching their worst start in franchise history.
The Twins said the makeup date has yet to be determined...
The White Sox were scheduled to start a three-game weekend series against the division foe Minnesota Twins on Friday before the game got postponed until a later date (likely August).
Still, a two-game series will kick off at US Cellular Field on Saturday.
The opener of the series and the ten game homestand will see Jake Peavy (2-1, 3.93 ERA) taking...
