End of season post-mortem: Minnesota Twins

The Twins are probably going to end 2014 with their best record since 2010, but given that they’re coming off three-straight 96-loss seasons, that’s not exactly a consolation. This once proud franchise has fallen onto rough times, and their 2014 season could be their most disappointing year considering the additions the club made in the offseason.

What will the Twins rotation look like next season?

The Twins, at 11 games out of first place, are at a point where they can safely begin thinking of next year. I do believe that it’s important to continue to show strides this year. As many complaints as they have had, they haven’t hit their late season swoon yet, and they have a very good chance at 70 wins this season. It would show the players on the roster that there is hope...

Twins prospects show off for hometown fans at Futures Game

MINNEAPOLIS -- On a day when pitching dominated, a pair of Minnesota Twins prospects were partially to thank. Righthander Alex Meyer needed just four pitches to cruise through an inning of work in Sunday's Futures Game. Fellow Twins prospect Jose Berrios' day was nearly as efficient. The Puerto Rico native threw 12 pitches in a perfect first inning as the starter for the...

Minnesota Twins Top 10 Prospects

The Minnesota Twins have one of the best farm systems in baseball. Buxton and Sano should become All-Stars and franchise cornerstones. Stewart and Meyer should become good starters. Rosario, Berrios, and Thorpe have tons of potential, but are unpolished. The other players on this list will most likely become solid contributors. The Twins are going to be tough to beat for many years...

Twins tapping cask of Kentucky collegiate talent

When Minnesota Twins left-hander Logan Darnell made his big league debut on Monday in Cleveland, Gary Henderson was watching -- on his cell phone. Thankfully for Henderson, the head baseball coach at the University of Kentucky, it's easier than ever to track his former players like Darnell.

45 Prospects in 45 Days: Minnesota’s Alex Meyer

Bruce Kluckhohn/Minnesota Twins/Getty Images Profile When the Twins decided to move towards a rebuild and began trading their more experienced players, it was a fair assumption that they would be able to get a fair return, considering the value of the assets they were dealing – namely, Denard Span.

Prospect Meyer eyes Majors debut in '14

With a fastball that sits in the high 90s and a towering 6-foot-9 frame, Twins top pitching prospect Alex Meyer possesses a rare combination for a starting pitcher. In fact, only eight players 6-foot-9 or taller have made big league starts, with only future Hall of Famer Randy Johnson making more than 170 starts.
