Assessing the 2015 damage: The Yankee Middle Infielders

The Yankees had five years to find a replacement for Derek Jeter. That's how well he telegraphed his retirement. Five years. They drafted a SS, (Cito Culver), in the first round. They signed a Manuto tribute band of nubile 16-year-old Latinos. The closest they came was Eduardo Nunez, the Butcher of Baghad with a glove. In fact, the more we saw of Nunez, the more he looked like...

Santana excited about move back to shortstop

MINNEAPOLIS -- Danny Santana insists that nothing surprised him during his rookie year with the Minnesota Twins in 2014. As a 23-year-old in his first big-league season, Santana batted .319 and stole 20 bases in 101 games. And he did most of that while playing out of position, shifting from shortstop to center field. Rarely, if ever, did he look overwhelmed. Perhaps the only time...

No mandatory helmet law for Twins' Nunez

MINNEAPOLIS -- There was something unusual about Twins infielder Eduardo Nunez's three-run home run in the sixth inning of Thursday's loss. It wasn't that it tied the game, although Minnesota eventually lost 5-4. It wasn't the fact that it was only Nunez's fourth homer of the year. No, the most bizarre part of Nunez's home run was that his helmet stayed on his head while he rounded...

Boxscore Breakdown #139: Back on track – Angels 5, Twins 4

Well, it wasn’t pretty and more difficult than it really needed to be, but the Angels are back in the win column and back on track for their smooth ride to the AL West crown. The offense showed some life, too. The poor Santiago start was less than ideal, but after getting swept by the Astros, this is a real step forward.

Twins' again leave too many on base in loss to Royals

Another game, another night in which Minnesota's offense struggled. For the second night in a row, the Twins went just 2 for 12 with runners in scoring position against Kansas City. And once again, it resulted in a loss, this time a 6-3 defeat at the hands of the Royals. Though Minnesota's bullpen faltered in a four-run seventh inning, the Twins' lack of timely hitting was again...

Twins run into trouble in loss to Royals

In a one-run game, the little things can often be magnified. One missed opportunity could mean the difference between winning that one-run game or being on the losing end of it. Such was the case Wednesday when Minnesota fell 3-2 to Kansas City at Kauffman Stadium. Though the Twins led 1-0 into the sixth inning, a sequence of miscues -- on the basepaths, no less -- cost Minnesota...

WATCH: Umpire get drilled in mask by flying bat

This was a pretty scary moment from Wednesday night’s Twins-Mariners game. Eduardo Nunez fouled off a pitch from Brandon Maurer and lost his grip on the bat after the swing. Nunez’s bat then smacked home plate umpire Gabe Morales in the mask. The sound it made was just gross, and I’m thankful that Morales wasn’t seriously injured.

The Twins traded for Nunez in early April to bring him over from the New York Yankees. At the time, Nunez said he wasn't sure what his role would be with Minnesota, which already had plenty of infielders. "They...
