    Josh Donaldson

    As usual, teams in general won at a slightly better rate than players in arbitration hearings. 2014 saw the most arbitration hearings since 2001.

  15. 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…

  16. 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…

  17. 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…

  18. 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…

  19. 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…

  20. 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…

  21. 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…

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

    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]…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. 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…
