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...

Not pitching in: Twins hurlers fail to help club in blowout loss

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Twins signed veteran Kendrys Morales on Sunday with the hope that he can inject some life into their offense. Yet on the same day that Morales was inked to a one-year deal, the Twins' offense wasn't the problem against the visiting Astros. The pitching was. Minnesota's pitchers gave up a season-high 14 runs as Houston won the series finale...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, May 29

Dozier's home run, Deduno's pitching lift Twins over .Mariners

Brian Dozier doesn’t like talking about being a power hitter, but he spoke up Saturday about the state of the team. “We had a lot of close ballgames,” he said. “But if you asked this question last year it would be completely different. We are winning these games. It’s a whole different squad, and good teams win close games.” The Twins held off Seattle 4-3 at Target...

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...

Promising pitching?

Phil HughesPhil Hughes and Samuel Deduno are looking good thus far in spring training. Hopefully this success can translate into the regular season. Deduno has been making his appearances out of the bullpen which is encouraging. It would be exciting to have him take the 8th and Perkins take the 9th. It could help to solidify an otherwise shaky bullpen.For more on Hughes and Deduno...

Minnesota Twins will look to deal starting pitcher

The Minnesota Twins added a number of options to their starting rotation this off-season. While none might be true aces, it creates a crowded situation at the back of their rotation. Once that situation has been decided, the team could look to gauge trade interest in the guys who did not win a spot. Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe writes about that possibility: The Twins,...
