    The Rays entered this afternoon’s contest against the Twins having completed back-to-back shutouts. Starter Chris Archer shut them out over six innings on Friday while Matt Moore went three innings in a rain-soaked affair last night. The last time a Rays pitcher had allowed a run was in the sixth inning on Thursday against the…

    Josh Willingham

    Whatever slim chance the Twins had of getting something decent in return for Josh Willingham before the July 31 trade deadline is gone, as he’ll miss 4-6 weeks following knee surgery. As of yesterday afternoon Willingham and the Twins were saying he was optimistic about avoiding surgery and returning from the disabled list in the…

    Aaron Hicks‘ season-long struggles now include a hamstring injury and Minnesota’s rookie center fielder has been placed on the disabled list. Oswaldo Arcia, who was demoted to Triple-A two weeks ago despite playing well in 30 games for the Twins, has been called back up to replace Hicks on the roster. Hicks has recovered from…

  6. And That Happened: Thursday’s scores and highlights

    May 31, 2013, 6:52 AM EDT

    Groundhog Day

    Pirates 1, Tigers 0: Jim Leyland was in the Virgin Islands once. He met a girl. they ate lobster, drank piña coladas. At sunset, they made love like sea otters. That was a pretty good day. Why couldn’t he get that day over, and over, and over? Or, well, at least two out of three days. It’d…

  7. Update: Anibal Sanchez loses no-hit bid against Twins

    May 24, 2013, 9:16 PM EDT

    Anibal Sanchez

    Tigers starter Anibal Sanchez has no-hit the Twins through seven innings tonight in Detroit. The only base runners he has allowed came on walks to Jamey Carroll and Chris Parmelee, and he has retired each of the last 17 batters he has faced. Parmelee, Eduardo Escobar, and Aaron Hicks are slated to face Sanchez when…

  8. Tigers lose because Jim Leyland’s closer-by-committee really wasn’t

    Apr 3, 2013, 7:40 PM EDT

    Jim Leyland

    Jim Leyland said all of the right things this spring after Bruce Rondon failed to step up and win the Tigers’ closing gig. He didn’t seem the least bit disturbed to go with a closer-by-committee situation while waiting for things to shake out. And then he went and seemingly abandoned the idea in the second…

  9. Twins considering trade for Rays righty James Shields?

    The Twins had one of the worst pitching staffs in the majors this season, finishing with a combined 4.77 ERA that ranked 28th out of baseball’s 30 teams. It was a given that they’d try to do some patchwork this winter, but could a big splash be on the way? According to Nick Cafardo of…

    May 15, 2012, 4:46 PM EDT

    Chris Iannetta, Justin Morneau

    Justin Morneau‘s injured wrist must have felt pretty good after his batting practice session, because the Twins announced that he’ll be activated from the disabled list before tomorrow night’s game. To clear room on the roster Minnesota demoted Chris Parmelee to Triple-A after the 24-year-old first baseman struggled when asked to jump from Double-A to…

  11. Why not another no-hitter for Jered Weaver?

    May 7, 2012, 5:40 PM EDT

    Jered Weaver

    So, yeah, it’s probably still a thousand-to-one shot, but in his rematch with the Twins tonight, Jered Weaver would seem to be better set up for back-to-back no-hitters than any pitcher in memory. Here’s how tonight’s Twins lineup has hit right-handers this season: CF Denard Span – .321 SS Brian Dozier – MLB debut (.316…

  12. Will Jered Weaver’s no-hitter help Angels turn things around?

    Jered Weaver couldn’t hold back the tears in the aftermath of his first career no-hitter on Wednesday night against the Minnesota Twins. After an emotional celebration with his Angels teammates, he hugged his parents and his wife before taking the microphone to address the crowd. “My mom, my dad, my wife, I mean this is…

    The good news is that Twins rookie Chris Parmelee has yet to experience any concussion-related symptoms after being drilled in the helmet Wednesday and seems likely to avoid the disabled list. The bad news, as Twins media communications staffer explains, is that Parmelee now “looks like he got punched by Mike Tyson”:

    Boston Red Sox v Minnesota Twins

    Chris Parmelee got drilled in the helmet by a pitch last night and was down for several minutes before being checked out by Twins trainers and eventually leaving the field under his own power. He looked a little dazed as he made it back to the dugout and the Twins’ recent history with concussions to…

    Ben Revere AP

    As speculated earlier this afternoon, the Twins just announced that outfielder Ben Revere has been optioned to Triple-A Rochester. Clete Thomas, who was claimed off waivers from the Tigers today, will take his place on the active roster. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing, as Revere was essentially being wasted on the Twins’ bench. While…

  16. What ever is wrong with Roy Halladay?

    Mar 14, 2012, 5:59 PM EDT

    Roy Halladay

    Roy Halladay gave up a homer to Alex Rodriguez in his first spring start, which is fine because that’s Alex Rodriguez, the active major league leader in home runs. In his second spring start, Halladay gave up two homers to Eric Patterson, a journeyman most famous for being the younger brother of a former top…
