Braves' Kurt Suzuki steps up big time for ill 3-year-old

The latest social media effort, the #TruckerToughChallenge, began Jan. 31.About four months earlier, the Dukes family had stopped radiation on their little Trucker, ending all of the conventional cancer treatment that his mother, Shauna, had labeled “soooo toxic.”Trucker, 3, had been through enough while fighting Stage IV Neuroblastoma -- not just radiation, but also chemotherapy...

40 in 40: Casey Fien

Casey Fien is fine. In the modern bullpen, there are a number of architypes that relievers are labeled with. The flamethrower, the LOOGY, the long reliever. And then there’s Casey Fien. His fastball sits around 93-94 mph—merely average by today’s standards—and his only standout skill, his command, doesn’t turn heads like strikeouts do. But the Mariners signed him to a one...

Had a short, yet forgetful, stint with the Dodgers. Fungible middle relievers are a dime a dozen in baseball, and that’s exactly what Casey Fien was for the Twins from 2012 through 2015.

Dodgers Claim Casey Fien on Waivers, But Can He Help the Bullpen?

You can say one thing about this front office’s bullpen-building strategy: they certainly have a type. If you simplify Pedro Baez down to a few words, you get “fly ball pitcher who doesn’t throw many offspeed pitches and doesn’t walk many batters” (at least before this season). Yimi Garcia is a fly ball pitcher who doesn’t throw many offspeed pitches and doesn’t walk...

Sunday Notes: Fien’s Twitchy Feeling, Baldelli’s New Gig, Pollock the Scout, more

Casey Fien has found his niche. Primarily fastball-curveball when he broke in with the Tigers, in 2009, the Twins reliever has since added a cutter and learned how to pitch. As he told me a few weeks ago, “Now I know what I can get away with and what I can’t.” Last summer, Fien didn’t […]

Baseball careers often start with winter grunt work

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) Long before any of that major league money starts landing in their bank accounts, most baseball players are in a similar predicament as everyone else in the regular workforce. Between baseball seasons there are no paychecks and bills don't stop for the winter. So they need to find jobs. Minnesota Twins reliever Casey Fien says he signed for $500 and a plane...

Twins' tight-knit bullpen hopes to stay strong with less usage

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- With the repeated struggles of the Minnesota Twins' starting pitchers last year, the team's bullpen resorted to gallows humor. Better laugh about it then gripe and grouse, right? "It became a running joke that we started stretching in the third inning," relief pitcher Casey Fien said. As Fien spoke, starting pitcher Vance Worley smiled while seemingly wincing...
