MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Logan Forsythe may be best known by Minnesota fans as the player who replaced fan favorite Brian Dozier.
The lone major leaguer of the three players the Dodgers sent to the Upper Midwest on July 31 for the second baseman, Forsythe has filled in capably.
Forsythe had three RBIs, the Minnesota bullpen tossed 5 1/3 shutout innings and the Twins beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 6-4 Wednesday.
NEW YORK (AP) — Pitcher Tyler Duffey has been brought up from the minor leagues by the Minnesota Twins.
The 27-year-old right-hander allowed three hits and a pair of unearned runs in 11 innings over four relief appearances for Triple-A Rochester this season.
He is 16-16 with a 5.29 ERA in 36 starts and 56 relief appearances for the Twins over the past three seasons. He was 2-3 with a 4.94 ERA in 56 relief appearances with Minnesota last year.
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Yonder Alonso blames a bad month on him trying to do too much.
The Athletics' All-Star first baseman is trying a new approach, and it seems to be working.
Alonso homered in the bottom of the 12th inning to lift the Oakland Athletics to a 6-5 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Sunday.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Lonnie Chisenhall hit two home runs for Cleveland in the second game after Jose Ramirez went deep twice in the opener, helping Cleveland take over first place in the AL Central by sweeping a doubleheader from the Minnesota Twins with 9-3 and 6-2 victories on Saturday.
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Minnesota Twins right-hander Trevor May has undergone Tommy John elbow surgery that will keep him off the mound this season.
The Twins announced on Wednesday that the replacement of May's torn ulnar collateral ligament was successful. The 27-year-old was transitioning back to starting, following a move to the bullpen halfway through the 2015 season.
FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — If the Minnesota Twins are going to rebound from a 2016 season marked by a club-record 103 losses, they need their youngest starting pitchers to take the next step in their progression this spring.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Nelson Cruz's towering two-run home run seemed to give the Seattle Mariners the jolt they needed Saturday night, tying the score with the second-longest homer in the majors this season.
Instead, Minnesota's own big slugger, Miguel Sano, responded with his own big swing and a big defensive play after an error in the ninth inning to keep Seattle's struggling offense down and deal a blow to the Mariners' wild-card hopes.
DETROIT (AP) — Tyler Duffey knew that he needed a clean fourth inning Wednesday night.
Not only didn't he get one, he couldn't even get three outs.
The Minnesota Twins had just scored five runs in the top of the fourth to take a 5-2 lead over the Detroit Tigers. If Duffey could shut them down in the bottom of the inning, the Twins would have regained the momentum that saw them beat Detroit 8-1 on Tuesday.
DETROIT (AP) — Miguel Cabrera's homer broke a seventh-inning tie, and the Detroit Tigers rallied for a crucial 9-6 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday night.
The Tigers trailed 5-2 in the fourth inning, but came from behind to pull one game behind Toronto for the second AL wild card.
Ian Kinsler had four hits, finishing a homer short of the cycle, and drove in three runs while scoring two. Brian Dozier and Kurt Suzuki homered for the Twins.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Twins were once an organization lauded for fundamentals, often fielding a team that was one of the best fielding teams in the major leagues.
Defense, these days, is one of their many problems.
Mike Napoli hit a mammoth home run on the first pitch of the fifth inning to give Cleveland the lead, and the Indians hung on to beat the Twins 5-4 on Friday night and maintain their six-game lead in the AL Central.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Mike Napoli hit a mammoth home run on the first pitch of the fifth inning to give Cleveland the lead, and the Indians hung on to beat the Minnesota Twins 5-4 on Friday night and maintain their six-game lead in the AL Central.
TORONTO (AP) — The Minnesota Twins have selected the contract of right-handed pitcher Alex Wimmers from Triple-A Rochester, promoting their 2010 first-round draft pick to the major leagues for the first time.
The move was made Friday before the game at Toronto.
Wimmers and left-hander Andrew Albers are taking the place on the staff of starters Jose Berrios and Tyler Duffey, who were sent to Rochester after the game Thursday. The rotation for next week is up in the air.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Jose Berrios has returned to Triple-A, where he has dominated for a second straight year.
Maybe next time he'll be back in Minnesota with a better feel for how to make it in the majors.
James McCann had a three-run homer among his four hits, Daniel Norris pitched into the seventh inning and the Detroit Tigers beat Berrios and the Twins 8-5 to complete a three-game sweep for Minnesota's seventh straight defeat.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Brian Dozier has given a big jolt to the Minnesota Twins' offense the second half of the season.
Minnesota's pitching is leaving Dozier's power display to go for naught.
Dozier hit his career-high 30th homer for the Twins, but starter Tyler Duffey (8-10) allowed six runs in three innings as Minnesota fell to the Detroit Tigers 9-4 on Wednesday night.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Minnesota Twins manager Paul Molitor labeled it "unraveling."
Twins right-hander Tyler Duffey (8-9) retired the first 10 hitters, striking out four. But he only got one out from the final seven batters he faced before being removed by Molitor in an 8-1 loss to the Kansas City Royals on Thursday night.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Brian Dozier's milestone home run led to his first career curtain call and a satisfying win for the Minnesota Twins.
Dozier hit his 25th homer of the season and the 100th of his career, leading Tyler Duffey and the Twins over the Kansas City Royals 5-3 Saturday night and ending a four-game losing streak.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — After spending much of the first half of the season in the cellar, the Minnesota Twins became an afterthought in the American League.
Minnesota is giving the rest of the AL something to think about now as a playoff spoiler with some minor league call-ups getting more of a chance in the lineup.
Tyler Duffey pitched six effective innings and Minnesota took advantage of two misplays by center fielder Carlos Gomez in a three-run fifth that sent the...
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — With their stagnant offense struggling the way it is, the Houston Astros can't afford the sort of defensive mistakes center fielder Carlos Gomez made Monday night.
Tyler Duffey pitched six effective innings and Minnesota took advantage of two misplays by Gomez in a three-run fifth that sent the Twins to a 3-1 victory over Houston.
Gomez, the former Twins outfielder, let Jorge Polanco's single skip by him for a two-base error that allowed one run...
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — One night after a Minnesota starting pitcher went the distance, Twins right-hander Tyler Duffey barely lasted an inning.
Duffey was chased by Atlanta after recording just four outs, giving up five runs and eight hits in a 9-7 loss Wednesday.
The short outing for Duffey was his second straight — he went just 2 1/3 innings his last time out — and came on the heels of a complete game from Ervin Santana. Though Santana went nine innings Tuesday,...
BOSTON (AP) — Tyler Duffey was trailing Boston by a run after throwing just one pitch. It didn't get much better from there for Minnesota's young right-hander or the pitchers that followed him.
Mookie Betts hit a leadoff homer on the first pitch he faced from Duffey and the next three Boston batters singled as the Red Sox rode the early lead to a 13-2 rout of the Twins on Thursday night.
