Joe Mauer sent home after setback in concussion recovery

MINNEAPOLIS -- Twins catcher Joe Mauer was sent home Wednesday after experiencing a setback from his recovery from a concussion. "He didn't have a good day today," said Twins general manager Terry Ryan. "It's a concern more than frustration because you've got to feel for the guy. He just didn't feel well today, so we sent him home. This wasn't...

Mike Pelfrey extends winless streak to 12 games

MINNEAPOLIS -- The last time Mike Pelfrey won a game at Target Field, there was still snow on the ground throughout Minnesota. Hit with yet another loss Wednesday in Oakland's 18-3 rout, the Twins right-hander fell to 5-12 on the year. On top of that, it extended his winless streak at Target Field to 12 games.

Take your base: Lucky Twins fan grabs four foul balls

MINNEAPOLIS -- Most baseball fans would be happy to catch just one foul ball in their lifetime. On Monday, one Twins fan caught enough foul balls for four lifetimes.

Twins slugger Josh Willingham returns to form in win over Oakland

MINNEAPOLIS -- Maybe Josh Willingham should bat sixth more often. Hitting in the No. 6 spot in the order for the first time in nearly four years, Willingham homered twice -- including the go-ahead blast in the eighth inning -- to lift Minnesota to a 4-3 victory over the visiting Oakland Athletics. And he did so lower in the order than he's ever batted in a Twins uniform. Manager...

Josmil Pinto is "Catching" MLB by Storm

Do you know the name Josmil Pinto?  No...well, neither did I until about two weeks ago.  Since joining the Twins the 24 year old catcher has done nothing but hit.  In 7 games he's batting .565/1.513, with 6 R, 5 DBL, 1 HR, and 4 RBI.  That equates to a 0.6 WAR, which is amazing for such a short period of time.  Aside from a poor showing in 2010 and 2011, Pinto has hit well...

Twins impressed by rookie catcher Josmil Pinto so far

MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota Twins catcher Josmil Pinto had three doubles in Minnesota's win Monday, but his most impressive swing of the night didn't account for one of his three hits. In the sixth inning, Pinto pulled a ball well foul down the left field line. The deep drive hit the glass of Target Field's executive suites, a territory rarely -- if ever -- reached by batters...

Escobar, fellow Twins September call-ups out to prove themselves

MINNEAPOLIS -- Eduardo Escobar was understandably disappointed when the Minnesota Twins optioned him to Triple-A Rochester in mid-July. But the reality was that there just weren't enough at-bats for Escobar in the majors. So instead of sulk, Escobar performed. In 43 regular-season games, the utility infielder helped spark Rochester to a playoff berth by batting .307 with four...

Gardenhire ejected after umpires change call

Minnesota manager Ron Gardenhire has been ejected in the fourth inning of the Twins' game against Oakland Athletics. Gardenhire was thrown out after umpires huddled and awarded Jed Lowrie a two-run double after originally calling his line drive down the first-base line foul. Umpire Bill Miller had to dance out of the way of Lowrie's hit as it landed in front of him and ruled...

Plouffe leads Twins over Angels 6-3

Trevor Plouffe went 2 for 3 and drove in the tying and go-ahead runs as the Minnesota Twins snapped a 10-game home losing streak with a 6-3 victory over the Los Angeles Angels on Monday night.

Willingham homers twice and Twins beat A's 4-3

Josh Willingham hit two home runs, including a two-run shot in the eighth that put the Twins in front for good, to lead Minnesota past the Oakland Athletics 4-3 Tuesday night.

Twins welcome call-ups, end 10-game home losing streak

September baseball for non-contending teams means looking at players who could help a team contend in the future.
