Kansas City 2, Chicago 1 – It’s weird to see 2 AL Central games with a...

Twins' Albers could pitch in South Korea in 2014

MINNEAPOLIS -- Andrew Albers doesn't speak a lick of Korean, but he might have to learn quickly. A team from South Korea, the Hanwha Eagles, remains interested in the Twins left-hander. Albers said Friday that nothing was finalized yet as talks between the clubs were still ongoing, but it sounds as if there's a good chance Albers could pitch in Korea in 2014. "It'...

MLB Pitcher Andrew Albers Gives Back To His Community In An Awesome Way

Minnesota Twins rookie Andrew Albers is a really good dude. Instead of heading down south and spending his offseason vacationing in parts much warmer like many of his contemporaries, he went back to his native Saskatchewan to be a substitute teacher at his alma mater high school, John Paul II Collegiate. It all started four seasons ago as a way to make ends meet in the offseason...

Albers hopeful, motivated for 2014 roster spot

MINNEAPOLIS -- If the last two months have been an audition for Andrew Albers, he left the job interview with a sour taste in his mouth. Pitching in his final game of the 2013 season, the Twins left-hander allowed four runs -- three earned -- on seven hits in 5 innings Thursday as Minnesota fell 6-5 to the visiting Cleveland Indians.

Andrew Albers shines in first time facing Toronto

MINNEAPOLIS -- Toronto is nearly 2,000 miles away from North Battleford, Saskatchewan, where Twins pitcher Andrew Albers grew up. But there was still something special for the left-hander when he got to face the Blue Jays -- Canada's only major league team -- on Sunday at Target Field.

Is Andrew Albers like, good?

Ok, let's get the obvious out the way right up front - he's had two starts, one he he lasted 8 and 1/3 innings and gave up no runs, and another was a complete game shutout.  That's pretty crazy.  He's just the 63rd pitcher to give up zero runs in his first two career starts, and the combined 17.1 innings is the 17th longest scoreless streak ever by a starter to...

Twins rookie starter Andrew Albers already in rarefied air

MINNEAPOLIS -- Andrew Albers didn't think things could get any better than his major league debut last week. He proved himself wrong Monday. The Twins left-hander tossed a two-hit shutout against the Cleveland Indians, going the distance in Minnesota's 3-0 win.

Albers for prime minister? These fans thinks so

Andrew Albers sizzled in his MLB debut on Tuesday night, throwing 8 13 innings of shutout baseball and only allowing one runner to reach second base against Kansas City. As impressive as that is, it pales in comparison to having your own fan club travel on the road with you to show their support as the Twins fans in this video did for the rookie pitcher. These five guys went all...

Andrew Albers dominates Royals in major league debut

Andrew Albers was so close to capping off a memorable night with what would have been an even more memorable ending. He neared a milestone that only one pitcher in Twins history had ever done before: throw a complete game in his major league debut. In the end, Albers fell just two outs shy of going the distance. Still, he stymied the Royals in his major league debut by throwing...
