Trevor May Excelling in Bullpen, Could be Permanent

The Minnesota Twins demoted rookie starting pitcher Trevor May to the bullpen in early July when Ervin Santana‘s suspension ended. To that point, May had been 4-7 though 15 starts with a 4.37 ERA and was struggling, having lost his last four decisions. Seventeen appearances out of the bullpen later, May’s demotion has undoubtedly paid off for the Twins and the club might wind...

Ervin Santana: Yankees Stadium ‘a joke’ following rough outing

Minnesota Twins pitcher Ervin Santana isn’t fond of Yankees Stadium after Greg Bird blasted two home runs off him in Wednesday’s game. To be fair, Santana did give Bird credit for one of the dingers, but he staunchly believes the second was due solely to the layout of the stadium. “The other one was a very good pitch, out and way, and he just hit it very good. I know,...

Front of Minnesota Twins rotation suddenly one of league’s best

The Minnesota Twins rotation was basically a joke after finishing dead last in starter ERA in both 2013 and 2014. Phil Hughes was a bright spot for that terrible rotation last year and finished seventh in American League Cy Young voting. The Twins had high hopes for Hughes to continue his success at the top of the rotation, and Minnesota singed veteran free agent Ervin Santana to...

Ervin Santana Pitching Like an Ace for Minnesota Twins

What makes an ace an ace?

Fantasy Roundup: Buyer Beware on Returning SP

Patrick Corbin and Ervin Santana both made their debuts this weekend. Corbin made his debut on Saturday, and it certainly could have gone worse. He threw 76 pitches on the day, 56 of which were for strikes. Given that control and command often elude pitchers returning from Tommy John, it was notable that Corbin didn’t walk a batter. Still, there was obvious rust, which should...
