On the 162 Game Workload

Commissioner Manfred’s ballpark tour took him to Texas yesterday, where he got to witness one potential solution to baseball’s run scoring problem: clone Samuel Deduno. I’m guessing that probably won’t be on the table when the next CBA negotiations come around, but it would bring offense roaring back to life, probably. My mediocre attempt at […]

Just Not Their Night; Houston Drops Final Game of Silver Boot Series At Home

Samuel Deduno made quick work of Texas in the first, but left some mistakes over the plate in the second and third innings that the Rangers did not miss. Astros manager AJ Hinch spoke about his starter after the game saying that, “Sam...

Twins' Deduno claimed by Astros

Samuel Deduno's time in Minnesota is over. The Houston Astros claimed the right-hander on outright waivers Saturday, the Twins announced. Deduno appeared in 30 games this season for Minnesota, including eight starts. He was 2-5 with a 4.60 ERA in 92 innings. With Deduno gone, the Twins' 40-man roster is now at 37 players. That could come into play in the next few days when Minnesota...

Deduno, Twins bullpen provide bright spot in close loss to Yankees

MINNEAPOLIS -- With the New York Yankees launching their own Fourth of July fireworks in the first two innings Saturday against Kyle Gibson, it appeared as if the Twins might be in for a long day. Despite a season-low two innings from Gibson, Minnesota's bullpen kept the Twins in the game. However, an early six-run deficit proved too much for Minnesota's offense to overcome even...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, May 29

Thursday’s limited slate gives us 10 games with only a few reliable starters. To help you decipher the rest, here are our Daily SP Rankings.

Streak stopped: Twins, Deduno can't continue positive vibe vs. Cleveland

Minnesota's starting rotation had gotten on a roll the last four games, as the Twins starters tossed four straight quality starts dating back to the series opener against Baltimore. Unfortunately for Samuel Deduno, he had to be the one to break the streak. The Twins right-hander made his first start of the year Tuesday against Cleveland and surrendered four runs (three earned) in...

Erratic Deduno settling into bullpen role

MINNEAPOLIS -- Kurt Suzuki was warned about Samuel Deduno. The former was signed this offseason to take over the everyday catching duties for the Minnesota Twins. The latter was perhaps the most erratic -- yet still effective -- arm on the Twins' pitching staff last year. While Deduno had one of the best strikeout rates of the starting rotation in 2013, he also walked a lot of batters...
