A Minnesota Twins fan made a great one-handed grab of Justin Morneau's home run ball in the second inning of Saturday's game at Target Field against the Detroit Tigers.

The fan was in the right field stands holding his beer in his right hand and his jacket with his right arm, but still managed to catch the ball barehanded with his left hand. Nice job.

The Minnesota Twins are not looking likely to compete for a postseason berth this season, despite the fact that MLB has added two additional playoff spots into the fray, meaning they may become highly motivated to shred some payroll as the season progresses. The one player who could net them the most in return may also just be the riskiest player for other teams to acquire...
MINNEAPOLIS Some closers have to wait several days before getting a chance to redeem themselves after a blown save. Matt Capps had to wait just 24 hours.
One day after blowing his first save of the year Sunday in a loss to Detroit, Capps bounced back by picking up the save Monday in Minnesota's 5-4 come-from-behind win over the visiting Oakland Athletics.
On Sunday, Capps...
MINNEAPOLIS When the Minnesota Twins opened Target Field in 2010, the organization prided itself on staying local with almost every aspect of the ballpark. From the food served at concession stands to the materials used to build the park, nearly everything came from Minnesota.
Now they're applying that philosophy to the roster.
Throughout the team's history, it has had...
At yesterday’s Minnesota Twins pre-game, Master Sgt. Robert Buresh, who was stationed in Afghanistan, surprised his daughters as they ran the bases by popping out from behind Twins mascot TC. Happy Memorial Day and thank you to those who keep us safe!
MINNEAPOLIS Through their first several starts, Twins starting pitchers P.J. Walters and Scott Diamond seemed to have success nearly every time out after their promotions from Triple-A Rochester. But their somewhat surprising starts raised the question of what would happen once they faced a team for the second time.
Walters did that Sunday, facing a Detroit Tigers lineup that tagged...
Minnesota Twins right-hander Francisco Liriano is moving back to the rotation. After making five relief appearances, Liriano will start on Wednesday against the Oakland A's at Target Field. He will take the spot of righty Anthony Swarzak, who struggled mightily in his previous start and has flu-like symptoms. "I'm just looking forward to the start," Liriano...
MINNEAPOLIS As 11-year-old Annie Buresh and her 8-year-old sister, Alex, ran the bases prior to Sunday's Minnesota Twins game, they had no idea what kind of surprise awaited them at home plate.
The Buresh sisters rounded third base to see their father, Robert, pop out from behind Twins mascot T.C. Bear to greet the girls at home plate. Master Sgt. Robert Buresh recently returned...
The Minnesota Twins need a win…badly! The problem is, so do the
Oakland A’s. Both teams are undergoing the types of losing skids that
makes them almost unwatchable. The good news
for the A’s and the Twins is that regardless of how awful they’ve been
playing, one team will emerge victorious and end their losing streaks.
The A’s and the Twins have each...
MINNEAPOLIS -- The normally unflappable Ryan Cook had his worst outing of the season for the Oakland A's on Monday, allowing a pair of runs in the eighth inning as the Minnesota Twins rallied for a 5-4 win on Memorial Day. Cook (1-1), who had not allowed an earned run this season in 21 appearances, gave up an infield single to Joe Mauer, walked Josh Willingham, then allowed...
MINNEAPOLIS After Sunday, the Minnesota Twins will have played the Detroit Tigers five times. Of those five games, however, they'll have avoided facing Tigers ace Justin Verlander so far this season.
That's seemingly a good thing on paper, as the reigning American League MVP and Cy Young winner is 5-2 with a 2.15 ERA in 10 starts so far this season. But Minnesota's...

A's at Twins - Scott Diamond and his 3-1 record take the hill for the Twins today vs Travis Blackley who has not started since 2007. Diamond has not given up a run in 14 innings pitched at Target Field this year. Considering the Twins own the worst ERA among starting pitchers in baseball at 5.47, Diamond is their ace with a 1.78 ERA. The A'...
By KATE HEDLIN,
Prince Fielder's struggles at the plate in Detroit's last series contributed to his team's disappointing sweep by the AL Central leaders, but he's making up for it this weekend.
Fielder and the Tigers will try to complete a three-game sweep of the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.
After scoring six total runs during three straight losses at...
– The Minnesota Twins designated Erik Komatsu for assignment. Komatsu, 24, was hitting .216/.293/.216 with 1 RBI and a 45 OPS+ in 51 AB's for the Twins this season. This movement will create room for right handed pitcher Jeff Manship who was recalled from Triple-A.
– The Toronto Blue Jays designated right handed pitcher Ryota Igarashi for assignment. The 33-year old Igarashi...
