Groin Injury Giving Walters A Shot

P.J. Walters  Samuel Deduno, who pitched extremely well at the WBC, suffered a groin injury during the championship game. He is expected to be out for only a couple weeks at most. This will give P.J. Walters a shot at starting today as the Twins take on the Tampa Bay Rays. However, even if Walters does well today, I still think that Deduno earned a shot at the 5th spot in the...

Rays players relish memories from WBC

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. Ben Zobrists trip produced many memories, but the smallest held the most power. They came in flashes: Walking in a clubhouse with his No. 12 jersey stitched in the United States colors, playing for a veteran coaching staff led by manager Joe Torre, looking at a nameplate above his locker and knowing that he was charged to represent the red, white and blue on...

Twins send Diamond, Swarzak to disabled list

The Minnesota Twins announced on Friday that they have placed pitchers Scott Diamond and Anthony Swarzak on the 15-day disabled list. Diamond, who was Minnesotas best starting pitcher in 2012, has been rehabbing his left elbow after having offseason surgery in December.

Player Profile #18: Evan Longoria | 3B | TB

Consistency hasn’t really been Evan Longoria‘s thing. After ranking 23rd overall in 2010, he played 133 games the next season en route to a disappointing 95th overall ranking. Last year he rebound with great per-game numbers that wouldn have been good enough for a borderline top-20 ranking, but he played less than half the season. For [...]

Zobrist homers, but Rays split squad falls

BRADENTON, Fla. (AP) -- Ben Zobrist homered leading off a three-run sixth inning Friday for Tampa Bay, but Stefan Welch hit a three-run homer in his first spring training at-bat to help the Pittsburgh Pirates beat a split squad 6-4. Welch, a third baseman who played last season at Double-A, hit a towering shot to right field off Dane De La Rosa. The Rays scored three runs to take...

Teammates decorate Tampa Bay Rays pitcher Joel Peralta’s locker for 37th birthday

Tweet   Joel Peralta is a late bloomer by baseball standards, making his Major League debut with the Los Angeles Angels at 29-years old. Since then he has gone on to pitch for the Kansas City Royals, Colorado Rockies, Washington Nationals, and currently the Tampa Bay Rays. In spring training action Saturday the Rays fell [...]

Let Gardenhire go? THAT would be lame

The Twins, they do things differently. One veteran player still can't believe that the team essentially fired bench coach Scott Ulger and hitting coach Joe Vavra at the end of last season ... then turned around and made Ulger the first-base coach and Vavra the third-base coach. Hey, this is an outfit that fired Bill Smith as general manager after the 2011 season ... then rehired...

Twins 14, Blue Jays 5

Joe Mauer had a three-run homer and six RBIs and Justin Morneau hit a two-run drive that caromed off a palm tree behind the right-field wall, helping the Minnesota Twins rout the Toronto Blue Jays 14-5 Sunday. Mauer homered to center in a four-run first off Dave Bush and hit a three-run double in the fourth that chased Guillermo Moscoso, who also allowed Morneau's homer during...

Links of the Day 3/22/13

Happy basketball day part 2! May today go a bit more smoothly than yesterday. Fangraphs is the first place I’ve seen that doesn’t rate Miguel Sano as the Twins’ top prospect. You have to dig deep during the tournament. And another awful GIF from day one of the tournament. Ouch. SCOREBOARD Lots of basketball, no important teams.
