BRIAN DUENSING RUMORS

Duensing's T-shirt, Twitter campaign raises childhood-cancer awareness

MINNEAPOLIS -- Next to Brian Duensing's locker in the Minnesota Twins clubhouse sat a stack of boxes and padded envelopes, nearly 20 in all. As a professional athlete, Duensing is used to getting mail sent to him from fans, so the pile of packages didn't appear too out of the ordinary. But this was no ordinary fan mail. In late August, the Twins reliever took to his Twitter...

Brian Duensing improving his 'mediocre' season

MINNEAPOLIS -- Sitting with his head buried in his Target Field clubhouse locker, a framed 4x6 of his 1-year-old daughter, McKenna, watching over his nonchalant pregame routine of iPad chicanery, Brian Duensing suddenly received an open-palmed slap to the back of the neck. The 30-year-old Twins reliever swiveled his chair slightly to the left -- his pitching arm side -- just enough...

Twins' Duensing displays growth vs. Red Sox

Last Saturday, Brian Duensing had just a few hours between a late-night text from pitching coach Rick Anderson and his Sunday start against the Indians. It was a six-inning, one-run affair, a last-minute start after the team traded Francisco Liriano to the White Sox.

Duensing recalls playing in Beijing Olympics

MINNEAPOLIS Tucked away in Brian Duensing's closet is a wardrobe of clothing he'll never wear again, everything from shoes to jackets, shirts and pants.

Duensing returns to battle Athletics

The All-Star break didn't slow the Oakland Athletics, and a thumb injury isn't posing a problem for Yoenis Cespedes. He'll try to keep the A's hot Sunday as they look to complete a three-game road sweep of the Minnesota Twins for the first time in more than 12 years. Oakland (45-43) entered the break winning six of seven, and has picked up right where it left off...
