SAMUEL DEDUNO RUMORS

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...

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...

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...

Twins P Samuel Deduno throws pitch with real bite

Minnesota Twins pitcher Samuel Deduno unleashed his secret weapon during Monday's win over the Angels: his necklace. No, it had nothing to do with wearing the braided Phiten titanium necklace around his neck. Deduno instead opted to chew it while pitching -- and it worked. With one out in the seventh inning and a runner on third, Deduno put the necklace in his mouth and fired...

Your browser does not support iframes. Minnesota Twins pitcher Samuel Deduno threw a strikeout while chewing on his stars-and-stripes necklace during the seventh inning of Monday night's game in Anaheim.

Deduno provides a jolt of adrenaline to Twins' staff

MINNEAPOLIS Samuel Deduno has only been with the Twins for five days this season, but even he could see just how taxed Minnesota's bullpen has been lately. With that in mind, Deduno delivered exactly the type of outing the Twins needed Wednesday especially coming off Tuesday's 14-inning marathon in Milwaukee. With the Brewers in town for a two-game series at Target Field...

Twins reassign WBC star Deduno to minors

The Dominican right-hander was a breakout star in the tournament last month, beating the United States and Puerto Rico in back-to-back starts to lead his team to the championship.

Twins' Deduno takes step back vs. White Sox

Occasionally, a young pitcher will be referred to as "effectively wild." On Saturday, Minnesota's Samuel Deduno was simply wildly erratic. Deduno began the day owning the second-most wins (six) of any Twins starter. Yet, the right-hander rarely found the strike zone against the first-place White Sox in an eventual 5-3 Twins setback. Deduno was all over the place...

Twins' Deduno scratches, claws way to 3-0

Somehow, some way, Samuel Deduno is 3-0 for the Minnesota Twins.Deduno stymied the Boston Red Sox on Thursday in just his fifth career start, holding them to only two hits in six scoreless innings as the Twins beat Boston 5-0 at Fenway Park. Oddly enough, Deduno threw fewer than half of his pitches for strikes. He finished with 101 pitches in six innings; only 50 of them went for...
