Found April 09, 2014 on Fox Sports North:
MINNEAPOLIS -- Minnesota's injured outfielders are attempting to get back on the field, but neither left fielder Josh Willingham nor right fielder Oswaldo Arcia were in the Twins' lineup Wednesday against Oakland. Assistant general manager Rob Antony said Willingham took swings in the cage Wednesday and is "headed in the right direction" after getting hit in the hand by a pitch Sunday in Cleveland. Arcia, meanwhile, took some swings on the field before Wednesday's game but wasn't making progress. Antony said it's likely that Arcia will be placed on the 15-day disabled list before Thursday's game. "We'll figure that out here in the next few hours and make the call and make a decision," Antony said. "I don't think we can keep playing two guys short. I don't know if Arcia's improving at the rate he needs to be available here in the next few days." With those two out of the lineup Wednesday, it meant Chris Herrmann ma...

Twins rumors: Minnesota made multiple significant offers to free agents

The Minnesota Twins have been getting a lot of flak in their local media for not spending as much money as other teams have been.  According to the Twins though, it's not like they didn't try to grab some.  Derek Wetmore of 1500 ESPN has a quote from President Save St. Peter:"We made offers to Matt Garza, a very significant offer. We made a significant offer to Ervin...

Twins show fight during mild, late-game altercation

MINNEAPOLIS -- By bench-clearing standards, what took place Wednesday between Minnesota and Oakland was relatively tame. But by the Twins' standards, the scuffle along the first base line during Minnesota's 7-4 loss was a bit out of character. It all started when Twins closer Glen Perkins struck out Oakland third baseman Josh Donaldson for the final out of the 10th inning...

Twins put Oswaldo Arcia on disabled list with wrist injury

Oswaldo Arcia injured his wrist Friday and tried to convince the Twins he could play through the pain before finally admitting this afternoon that he couldn’t, so Minnesota placed the 23-year-old outfielder on the disabled list. Darin Mastroianni, who was dropped from the 40-man roster last year, will be re-added to the roster and called up from Triple-A to take Arcia’s spot...

Twins top prospect Byron Buxton (wrist) gradually increasing activity

Byron Buxton is widely regarded as the top prospect in all of baseball. Unfortunately, the 20-year-old hasn't had much of a chance to show it. The Minnesota Twins outfielder is yet to play a minor league game this season as a result of a sprained left wrist, suffered three weeks ago. According to Mike Berardino of the St Paul Pioneer Press, Buxton is starting to progress towards...

Twins Thursday: Mastroianni grateful for return to big leagues

MINNEAPOLIS -- For most players, a demotion during spring training is a disappointment. Not for Darin Mastroianni. He welcomed it. The Twins outfielder was reassigned to minor-league camp on March 16, two weeks before the end of camp. He went down to Fort Myers hoping to win a spot on the 25-man roster as the fourth outfielder. But as he continued to work his way back from an ankle...

Upon further review: Twins get heavy dose of replays against Athletics

MINNEAPOLIS -- Major League Baseball's new replay system is still in its infancy stages just one week into the 2014 season. The Minnesota Twins -- and particularly, catcher Kurt Suzuki -- should already be fans of it after benefitting from replays three times in Wednesday's 7-4 extra-innings loss to Oakland. Suzuki was involved in all three replays that took place at Target...

Ron Gardenhire: And It’s A Thousand

To many April, 5th 2014 nothing great happened. But if you are a Minnesota Twins fan it is something that you should remember for a long time. I know I will. But let me start a the beginning. It started in 2002 when Minnesota Twins Manager Tom Kelly announced that he would retire as manager. Soon after Kelly walked off into the sunset his 3rd base coach, Ron Gardenhire was named...

Twins place Arcia on DL, call up Mastroianni

Does having demonstrative players matter?

  Yesterday, Glen Perkins struck out the A’s Josh Donaldson, and started yelling some stuff. Who knows what was yelled, but it irked Donaldson, and he started to saunter over to Perkins. The Twins rushed to come between Donaldson and Perkins, the A’s spilled out of their dugout, there was posturing and warnings were given out. Ultimately, this will be a story that is forgotten...
