Minnesota Twins pitching prospect Jose Berrios promoted to Triple-A Rochester

Twins pitching prospect Jose Berrios is taking the next step in his journey to the big leagues. The 21-year-old right-hander has been promoted to Triple-A Rochester, a move that he announced on his personal Twitter account Tuesday morning. Berrios, the Twins' No. 4 prospect, went 8-3 with a 3.08 ERA in 15 starts for Double-A Chattanooga. He racked up 92 strikeouts in 90 2/3 innings...

Replay decay: four thoughts from a five minute in-game delay

This was what Major League Baseball precisely wanted to avoid. In the third inning of Sunday’s matinée between the Milwaukee Brewers and the Minnesota Twins, pitcher Mike Fiers picked Eduardo Escobar off at first base. It was a close call and Escobar, after the call, remained on first base. Twins manager Paul Molitor stood at the top step of the dugout, staring back at one of...

When the Milwaukee Brewers had Stormin’ Gorman Thomas

Thirty-two years ago yesterday (June 24), a near-capacity Milwaukee County Stadium crowd roundly applauded the announcement of a ball player – from the other team. “Stormin’” Gorman Thomas, a popular outfielder with the Milwaukee Brewers back in their AL days, had been traded to the Cleveland Indians about two weeks earlier, and was making his first appearance back at the...

Twins’ Byron Buxton joins stellar rookie class

This has been The Year of the Rookie in MLB, with many top prospects getting the call up to the majors and providing a jolt of excitement and fresh air to what hasn’t been a terribly exciting 2015 season thus far. (Fans of the Royals or Astros would surely disagree with that. Maybe Nats fans too, thanks to Bryce Harper and Max Scherzer.) Cubs fans have surely enjoyed surging...

Minnesota Twins Need to Scrap Eight-Man Bullpen

First-year manager Paul Molitor has gone with an eight-man bullpen for over a month now, leaving the Minnesota Twins with just three available bench players on a regular night. It’s an interesting concept and the Twins have the pieces to make it work because so many of their players can play multiple positions. Because of this, they never need to dig deep into their bench when...

WATCH: Torii Hunter strips down during meltdown

Your browser does not support iframes. After striking out on a called third strike by home plate umpire Mark Ripperger, Torii Hunter had a must-see meltdown. Hunter felt the pitch was outside. Ripperger obviously did not agree and the two exchanged words before Hunter was ejected from the game. Twins manager Paul Molitor came out...Read More

The Minnesota Twins and the Molitor machine

Paul Molitor always seemed to be a thorn in the side of the Chicago White Sox. And being a Sox fan, he was therefore a thorn in my side. But Molly was a thorn in the side of every opponent on the ball field. The guy was a machine. You could set your watch by the predictability of his batting average, on-base percentage and slugging percentage. They were always going to be right around...

Twins to limit players' smartphone use on game days

  Taking away cell phones isn’t just a punishment for misbehaving teenagers anymore.   The Minnesota Twins said Friday that they’re going to limit their players’ cell phone time on game days, asking them to shut down their devices 30 minutes before the first pitch. The policy is something former manager Ron Gardenhire tried to start late last season and that...

Twins expected to hire Paul Molitor as manager

The Minnesota Twins’ search for a new manager is reportedly ending soon. The team is expected to hire Paul Molitor as its skipper, according to ESPN 1500’s Patrick Reusse. If hired, the Hall of Famer would beat out other candidates such as Boston Red Sox bench coach Torey Lovullo and former Twin Doug Mientkiewicz, who is currently the manager of the Twins’ single-A affiliate...

Molitor working to improve Twins' defensive positioning

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Back when Paul Molitor played, some of the most advanced technology that allowed hitters to scout opposing pitchers were VHS tapes. Most of the Twins players he now coaches have likely never used a VCR in their lives. Times have changed, and Molitor is slowly but surely adapting. Molitor was added to the Twins' coaching staff this offseason and will oversee the...
