    A three run lead and Rafael Soriano on the hill usually leads to an un-tuck fest. Not last night it didn’t.

  7. The Twins trade Vance Worley to the Pirates for cash

    Mar 25, 2014, 5:05 PM EDT

    Vance Worley

    Nota big trade, but a trade anyway: The @Twins have traded RHP Vance Worley to the Pittsburgh Pirates for cash. — Dustin Morse (@Twins_morsecode) March 25, 2014 Worley was the Twins’ Opening Day starter last year. But he was miserable in 2013, 1-5 with a 7.21 ERA and suffering with arm problems. Last week the Twins…

  8. Twins make Kyle Gibson their fifth starter

    Mar 21, 2014, 8:25 PM EDT

    Minnesota Twins v St Louis Cardinals

    LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that the Twins have given the final spot in their starting rotation to pitching prospect Kyle Gibson. Gibson, 26, has been listed as one of baseball’s top-100 prospects going into the 2010, 2011, and 2013 seasons by both Baseball America and Baseball Prospectus. The rotation…

  9. Vance Worley clears waivers, stays with Twins

    Mar 21, 2014, 3:45 PM EDT

    Vance Worley

    Vance Worley was the main piece the Twins received in the Ben Revere trade last offseason and then started on Opening Day … and now he’s headed to Triple-A after being placed on waivers and going unclaimed by the other 29 teams. In between he had a miserable season in which he went 1-5 with…

  10. Twins monitoring free agent left-hander Joe Saunders

    Mar 1, 2014, 4:34 PM EDT

    Joe Saunders AP

    Darren Wolfson of 1500ESPN.com reports that the Twins are monitoring the situation of free agent left-hander Joe Saunders and could be interested in signing him if he is willing to take “a minimal deal.” Saunders made $6.5 million with the Mariners last season, but he struggled to find much interest over the winter after putting…

  11. Joe Mauer takes live BP for first time in six months

    Feb 23, 2014, 9:01 AM EDT

    joe mauer getty

    Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press has the story: Before he stepped into the box against Vance Worley and Logan Darnell on Saturday, Joe Mauer hadn’t faced professional pitching in just over six months. Let that sink in for a moment. Mauer didn’t do much swinging on this day, but afterwards he sounded…

  12. Evan Gattis returns to New York under better circumstances

    May 24, 2013, 8:40 PM EDT

    Evan Gattis

    The Braves are in Queens, New York tonight to open up a three-game series against the Mets. Catcher Evan Gattis isn’t starting, but figures to be used as a pinch-hitter late in the game if the Braves are in need of some offense, as the 26-year-old came up with two big home runs recently: on…

  13. Believe it or not the Twins’ rotation has gotten even worse

    May 23, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Rick Anderson, Ron Gardenhire

    Remember all those offseason quotes from general manager Terry Ryan about how the Twins were focused on improving last season’s terrible starting rotation? Their actual moves didn’t quite match the talk, as they signed Kevin Corrreia (who’s been decent) and Mike Pelfrey (who’s been awful) and traded for Vance Worley (who went from Opening Day…

  14. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 23, 2013, 6:57 AM EDT

    Star Trek into Darkness

    Phillies 3, Marlins 0: Cliff Lee shuts out the Marlins on three hits. Granted, it doesn’t take anyone as good as Lee to shut out the Marlins, but that’s nothing that Lee could help. He was dominant. Just like Benedict Cumberbatch in that scene when he killed all those [alien race redacted to avoid spoilers]…

  15. Twins demote Opening Day starter Vance Worley to Triple-A

    May 22, 2013, 3:45 PM EDT

    Vance Worley

    It’s not often that you see an Opening Day starter sent to the minors, let alone demoted less than two months into the season, but that’s exactly what the Twins just did with Vance Worley. Worley got knocked around for eight runs in 3.2 innings against the Braves today, falling to 1-5 with a 7.21…

  16. Shane Victorino: “I got to have these, man. My addiction’s getting so bad.”

    May 17, 2013, 9:00 AM EDT

    Vance Worley

    Sad. Shane has so many friends and teammates looking out for him, yet he is still spiraling into addiction. And he doesn’t seem to care about it. And because he makes good money, the fact that each hit costs hundreds of dollars doesn’t work as a deterrent for him like it would most people. No, it’s…

  17. Some pitching feats in tonight’s action

    Apr 12, 2013, 10:40 PM EDT

    A.J. Burnett

    A.J. Burnett turned in his third consecutive solid effort, holding the Reds to three runs over six innings tonight, striking out eight. Since 2000, there are only ten occurrences of a pitcher tossing at least five innings and striking out eight or more in at least his first three starts of the season. Randy Johnson…

  18. Twins name Vance Worley as Opening Day starter

    Mar 27, 2013, 4:40 PM EDT

    Vance Worley

    Would-be Opening Day starter Scott Diamond is beginning the season on the disabled list with an elbow injury, so the Twins announced that Vance Worley will get the Game 1 assignment. Worley, who was acquired from the Phillies along with prospect Trevor May in a trade for center fielder Ben Revere this offseason, has a…

  19. 2013 Preview: Minnesota Twins

    Rick Anderson, Ron Gardenhire

    Between now and Opening Day, HardballTalk will take a look at each of baseball’s 30 teams, asking the key questions, the not-so-key questions, and generally breaking down their chances for the 2013 season. Today: the Minnesota Twins. The Big Question: Did the Twins do enough to improve their AL-worst rotation? After a decade-long run as…

  20. Scott Diamond will begin the season the disabled list

    Mar 18, 2013, 3:15 PM EDT

    Scott Diamond Getty

    Initially when Scott Diamond had surgery in December to remove bone spurs from his elbow the Twins said he’d be recovered in plenty of time for the season, but setbacks followed and now the left-hander will begin the year on the disabled list. Diamond is healthy enough to pitch in a minor-league game today and…

  21. Vance Worley started dating his fiancee when she asked him out on Twitter through Hunter Pence

    worley getty

    David Murphy of the Philadelphia Daily News has a really good article about Vance Worley, who was traded from the Phillies to the Twins for Ben Revere this offseason. It begins with the amusing story of how Worley learned about the trade from Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. while waiting to pick up an…

  22. Coming off elbow surgery, Scott Diamond might not be ready for Opening Day

    Feb 8, 2013, 9:58 PM EDT

    Scott Diamond Getty

    When left-hander Scott Diamond had surgery in December to remove a bone chip from his throwing elbow, it was expected that he would be ready for spring training. However, it appears that he is running behind schedule. LaVelle E. Neal III of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune writes that while Diamond has begun his throwing program, it’s…

  23. Twins set to sign Mike Pelfrey for $4 million

    Dec 16, 2012, 7:52 PM EDT

    Mike Pelfrey

    CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman is reporting that the Twins and Mike Pelfrey have come to terms on a one-year deal worth $4 million. The deal includes $1.5 million in incentives for the rehabbing right-hander. The soon-to-be 29-year-old Pelfrey had a 2.29 ERA in three starts for the Mets last season before undergoing Tommy John surgery. He…

    Washington Nationals' Lannan pitches to New York Mets in MLB game in New York

    UPDATE: CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman reports that it’s a one-year deal with a $2.5 million base salary. He could make an additional $2.5 million in performance incentives. Given what we’ve seen in this market, this is a pretty nice deal for the Phillies. 10:50 AM: John Lannan was non-tendered by the Nationals last month, but…

  25. The Phillies tried to get Asdrubal Cabrera from the Indians

    Dec 11, 2012, 9:40 AM EDT

    asdrubal cabrera getty

    I think I like hearing about trades that didn’t happen more than I like hearing about trades that did happen. From Paul Hoynes of the Cleveland Plain Dealer: Before the start of the winter meetings last week in Nashville, the two teams were talking about a trade that would have sent shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera to Philadelphia for…
