Santana excites Twins fans with five hits in win over White Sox

With the Minnesota Twins out of contention and in last place in the division, fans of the team will likely turn their attention to the younger players on the roster, especially those who figure to be a part of the Twins' future. Danny Santana is doing his part to draw some of that attention his way. Minnesota's center fielder finished Sunday's game with a career-high...

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...

Who has been clamoring for Eric Fryer?!

Terry Ryan on fans clamoring for the #MNTwins to call players up: "They all wanted people. A lot of the people that they wanted are here." — Tyler Mason (@FSNtylermason) July 27, 2014 I guess the question I have is what number is Terry Ryan’s threshold for “a lot”? Here is the list of players that had even the slightest bit of buzz before they came up: Danny Santana...

Twins make moves: Fryer, Fuld back; Hicks to DL

Two days after optioning catcher Josmil Pinto to Triple-A Rochester, the Minnesota Twins added a backup catcher to take his place. The Twins announced Friday that they've recalled catcher Eric Fryer from Rochester. He'll be the backup to Kurt Suzuki and will join Minnesota in Detroit in time for Friday's game.

Twins ready to usher in new era behind the plate

When the Minnesota Twins pulled the trigger on moving Joe Mauer from catcher to first base, they also did the same with their contingency plans. Mauer, who suffered a concussion that sent him to the disabled list last season, agreed with the team that will pay him $184 million over eight seasons and through 2018 to switch positions. They agreed with the goal in mind of Mauer staying...

Suzuki is coming to Minnesota

These are things I said on Thursday: “I don’t have anything against Ryan Doumit, but there was no way he had a spot on the team any more. The team is looking to go with Josmil Pinto at catcher, and have a young option to back him up in Chris Herrmann, or a veteran like Eric Fryer.” So the Twins, in my mind, traded Doumit because having him on the roster was superfluous....

The trade that finally happened

  Well, the Twins did it. I don’t have anything against Ryan Doumit, but there was no way he had a spot on the team any more. The team is looking to go with Josmil Pinto at catcher, and have a young option to back him up in Chris Herrmann, or a veteran like Eric Fryer. They have no shortage in incredibly slow corner outfielders either, from Chris Parmelee to Chris Colabello to...

Minnesota Twins are looking to bring back A.J. Pierzynski

With former All-Star catcher Joe Mauer moving to first base, the Minnesota Twins are very interesting in returning A.J. Pierzynski to his roots.  The Twins are looking to do so on a year-year basis. As reported by John Heyman of CBSSports.com, people familiar with the situation say the Twins are looking at bringing back A.J. Pierzynksi, who played with the Twins long before he played...

Mike McKenry will miss the rest of the season

You've likely already seen the news that Mike McKenry will miss the rest of the 2013 season with a torn meniscus. It came across yesterday afternoon right at the trade deadline, and frankly, it's not huge news for the Pirates. McKenry's a pretty prototypical back-up catcher, and Tony Sanchez is ready to replace him and spend some time apprenticing under Russell Martin...

Twins overcome Rays in 10th inning

PORT CHARLOTTE (AP) Sure, Desmond Jennings wants to see more pitches per at-bat. Yes, he'd like to take more walks this season. And maybe this is the year he finally masters the bunt. But the Tampa Bay Rays center fielder and leadoff man sees his job as a simple one: get on base. He did that two more times on a Monday night, but the Minnesota Twins rallied to tie it in the...

Roster Watch: Eric Fryer

Eric Fryer has actually already been removed from the roster.  In fact, Fryer has already signed on with the Minnesota Twins, so he will not be back. This is really no great loss, as his status as a prospect was pretty weak to begin with, and overall very short-lived. The Pirates acquired Fryer for disgruntled [...]

Pirates Outright Daniel McCutchen, Jeff Clement, and Eric Fryer

The Pittsburgh Pirates have outrighted Daniel McCutchen, Jeff Clement, and Eric Fryer to Triple-A Indianapolis. We previously heard that Clement and Fryer had been designated for assignment when the team created room for the waiver claims of Chad Beck and Ali Solis. This is the first we’ve heard that McCutchen was removed from the 40-man roster. Fryer has already elected free agency...

Pirates claim Chad Beck and Ali Solis

The Pirates claimed pitcher Chad Beck and catcher Ali Solis off waivers on Thursday. Jeff Clement and Eric Fryer were designated for assignment to make room for Beck and Solis on the 40-man roster. Obviously, these are pretty minuscule moves in the grand scheme of things, but I’ll briefly break them down anyway. Beck is a 27 year old reliever that was recently DFA by the Blue...

Pirates Claim Two Players, DFA Clement and Fryer

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced a few moves this afternoon. The team claimed right-hander Chad Beck off waivers from Toronto, and catcher Ali Solis off waivers from San Diego. To make room on the 40-man roster, they designated Jeff Clement and Eric Fryer for assignment. Beck, who turns 28 in January, has just 18 innings in the majors, with a 5.50 ERA, a 6.0 K/9, and a 2.5 BB/9 ratio...

Pirates Recall Fryer, Locke, Wilson; Selected Holt, Leroux From Triple-A

The Pittsburgh Pirates made the recalls of Eric Fryer, Jeff Locke, Justin Wilsoon, and the selection of the contracts of Brock Holt and Chris Leroux official. It was reported late last night of these moves.  Fryer provides Manager Clint Hurdle flexibility as the club’s third catcher. It can give him more opportunities to pinch-hit Michael McKenry if Rod Barajas gets the start...

First Pitch: Profiling the September Callups

As Kristy Robinson reported tonight, the Pirates will call up five players tomorrow when rosters expand, including infielder Brock Holt. To serve as an introduction to some of these players (or a refresher), here is a brief summary of each player. I included Kyle McPherson in this list, even though he was called up yesterday and threw in tonight’s game. I included him because there...

September call-ups, round one

The following players will join the Pirates tonight in Milwaukee as September call-ups: Chris Leroux, Justin Wilson, Eric Fryer, Jeff Locke, and Brock Holt. None of these are a surprise, except for Holt – who also makes plenty of sense. Holt – a 9th round draft pick in 2009 – hit very well in Double-A early this season, and has gone absolutely insane in Indianapolis since being...
