It was a pretty good 22nd birthday for Minnesota Twins outfielder Oswaldo Arcia on Thursday night.
One day after Arcia had four hits in a big Twins win in Boston, he tallied his first career triple and also hit a two-run home run (his third of the season) as Minnesota won 5-3 in Thursday's series finale at Fenway Park. Thanks in part to the birthday boy Arcia, the Twins took...
Glen Perkins knows his FIP. He also knows his HR/9, Z-Swing% and O-Swing%. More importantly, he understands what they mean. As the Minnesota Twins left-hander says, “I like baseball and I like math.”
Perkins is more than a stat geek. The 30-year-old converted starter is one of the better closers in the American League [despite his skepticism of modern-day closer usage]. Six weeks...
Did the Twins bullpen catcher purposely overthrow Jared Burton to give a fan a souvenir? Deadspin wants to know.

The Minnesota Twins will re-evaluate Pedro Florimon today after he had to leave yesterday's contest against the Boston Red Sox. Florimon came out of the game in the top of the seventh inning with tightness in his right hamstring. The injury occurred when Florimon was trying to beat out a bunt attempt.
According to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com, the Twins have listed Florimon...
For the first time in more than three years, the Minnesota Twins had their shortstop batting leadoff.
Veteran infielder Jamey Carroll got the start Tuesday at shortstop, his first game there this year. He was also penciled into the lineup as the Twins' leadoff batter. Second baseman Brian Dozier had been handling leadoff duties since mid-April but was moved down to ninth in...
The scoreboard Wednesday at Fenway Park resembled a football score, but it was indeed the score from a baseball game. That was thanks in large part to the first two innings the Minnesota Twins put together in Wednesday's 15-8 win over Boston.
In the first two innings combined, the Twins scored a total of 11 runs on nine hits. That included four doubles and two home runs a two...
The Minnesota Twins aren't taking any chances with Scott Diamond's surgically repaired left elbow.
On Tuesday night, he didn't give the Boston Red Sox many.
Diamond allowed three hits in seven shutout innings, Ryan Doumit hit his first homer of the season and the Twins beat the Red Sox 6-1.
Diamond said he still felt strong when he left the game but understands the...
The Minnesota Twins used a 4-run 6th inning to beat the Red Sox 5-3 at Fenway Park and win the series 3 games to 1. For the first 8 batters, John Lackey had the Minnesota Twins completely baffled. He struck out the side in the top of the 1st inning and didn't allow a base runner until there were 2 outs in the top of the 3rd inning.
Stephen Drew took a lot of flak for a slow start to the season after he was activated shortly after the season began. However, as Drew starts to get more at-bats, he’s starting to find his swing some.
He did that in a big way Monday night against Minnesota where he had four hits, including a game-tying home run in the seventh inning and then a walk-off RBI double in the 11th inning...
Memories of the 2012 version of the Red Sox came flooding back over the weekend, as the local nine were swept in a three-game set against the Rangers in Arlington. Luckily for the Sox, a four-game series against a weak Minnesota Twins team awaits them at Fenway to kick off the homestand. The Twins (13-14), who are coming off a series in Cleveland in which they lost two out of...
Kyle Gibson picked a good time for a complete game shutout.
The Minnesota Twins' pitching prospect went the distance Wednesday for Triple-A Rochester in a 3-0 win over Toledo. Just one day earlier, the Red Wings used nine pitchers in a marathon 16-inning 3-2 win, so Gibson helped preserve Rochester's bullpen.
Gibson's best game of the year also followed up his worst...
Let me start off by saying that I am sorry that I have not been able to get out the 3 stars of the game for the last 2 games. I am currently in the last week of school for the semester for myself and I haven't had much time to write anything other than research papers and review notes for my finals. With that being said the recent games have been awful, absolutely abysmal. This...
