    Even at the age of 37 and less than a year separated from an Achilles injury, David Ortiz can still hit with the best of them. The slugger entered tonight’s game against the Twins with a .999 OPS, including five home runs and 23 RBI in 98 trips to the plate. Since joining the club…

    From MLB.com’s Rhett Bollinger comes word that the Twins have placed right-hander Cole De Vries on the 15-day disabled list with a right forearm strain. The move was made retroactive to March 31, so De Vries will be eligible for activation early next week. De Vries was supposed to start Sunday’s series-finale against the Orioles,…

    Scott Diamond was in line to start Opening Day for the Twins, but instead he’ll begin the season on the disabled list. Diamond had a bone chip removed from his elbow in December and at the time the Twins insisted he’d be fully healthy for spring training, but setbacks followed and now Diamond is aiming…

    Twins right-hander Anthony Swarzak is expected to be sidelined for a month after fracturing two ribs in what the team is calling a “non-baseball activity.” Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports that it happened on January 25, so the Twins hope he can be back on a mound by the end of this month.

    Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Chris Tillman wipes sweat from his forehead during the first inning of the Orioles' MLB baseball game against the Minnesota Twins at Target Field in Minneapolis

    Twins 19, Orioles 7: This was a multifaceted butt-whupping, but it got started with Chris Tillman’s butt. Which is a shame considering that five short months ago he was in the Best Shape of His Life. All of those runs for the Twins despite hitting only one homer. It was a Gashouse Gorillas-style conga line…

    It turns out that Francisco Liriano‘s stint as a reliever won’t even last three weeks. On the heels of Anthony Swarzak being knocked around for six runs over just 3 1/3 innings last night against the Tigers, the Twins will move Liriano back into the starting rotation Wednesday against the Athletics. Liriano was removed from…

    Apr 22, 2012, 7:14 PM EDT

    Francisco Liriano

    While the Twins weren’t ready to reveal their exact plans, they said after Sunday’s loss to the Rays that they’d “take a step back” with Francisco Liriano after he gave up five runs and fell to 0-3 on the season. Liriano, who had an outstanding spring after tuning up in winter ball, is 0-3 with…

    Curtis Granderson

    Curtis Granderson had three homers in four innings and then singled in his remaining two at-bats Thursday as the Yankees topped the Twins 7-6.

    Nick Blackburn Getty

    The Twins were given quite the scare this afternoon when Nick Blackburn exited his start against the Rangers due to injury. Fortunately it doesn’t appear to be serious. According to Tyler Mason of FOX Sports Midwest, Blackburn was diagnosed with right posterior shoulder stiffness and is listed as day-to-day. The 30-year-old right-hander allowed two runs…

    Twins Indians Baseball

    Liam Hendriks was supposed to sub for the injured Scott Baker as the No. 3 starter in the Twins’ rotation, but he was scratched from his scheduled Sunday start and hospitalized with food poisoning. Anthony Swarzak did a nice job filling in for the guy who was supposed to be filling in, but Hendriks’ availability…

  14. You asked me questions on Twitter. So I shall answer them.

    Mar 1, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    The Question

    It was a long offseason, my friends. A light winter in these parts but a harsh one all the same. The usual offseason non-stories seemed even less-satisfying than normal. On a personal level, I spent many long, dark hours searching for meaning and happiness in a world that seemed uncompromising, unforgiving and indifferent to humanity.…
