Twins | Glen Perkins has banner May

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 06:30:28 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Glen Perkins was 13-for-13 in save opportunities in May, which set a franchise record for saves in a calendar month.

Fantasy Tip: Perkins is 19-for-19 on the season with a sparking 1.88 ERA and 1.08 WHIP. His K-rate has dipped to 7.88 K/9, which leaves a bit to be desired, but he's one of the best closers in fantasy baseball right now.

Twins | Glen Perkins bounces back

Sun, 31 May 2015 18:59:45 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Glen Perkins (arm) returned from a one-game absence and picked up his 19th save in as many chances in a 6-5 win over the Toronto Blue Jays Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Perkins had a rough outing Friday, May 29, and was unavailable Saturday. However, he showed no lingering effects Sunday and should be safe to deploy going forward.

Twins | Blaine Boyer picks up save

Sat, 30 May 2015 17:50:07 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Blaine Boyer picked up his first save of the season Saturday, May 30, against the Toronto Blue Jays because RP Glen Perkins (arm) was not available.

Fantasy Tip: Boyer has been solid out of the pen this year, but there is nothing in his history that suggests he can sustain his current 2.19 ERA. However, it appears that he is next in line to handle the ninth inning, and if Perkins needs to miss time, Boyer is worth a flier if you are hunting for saves.

Twins | Glen Perkins has arm issue

Sat, 30 May 2015 17:43:42 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Glen Perkins (arm) said his arm did not feel fresh and was not available against the Toronto Blue Jays Saturday, May 30, but manager Paul Molitor said he should be available Sunday, May 31.

Fantasy Tip: Perkins was shelled Friday, but his overall numbers remain stout. For now, the arm issue appears minor, but Blaine Boyer picked up the save Saturday and is worth keeping in mind of Perkins misses extended time.

Twins | Glen Perkins pitches in game

Thu, 19 Mar 2015 10:39:02 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Glen Perkins (oblique) threw a scoreless inning and allowed a hit in a minor league game Thursday, March 19. He threw nine of his 14 pitches for strikes and was between 90 and 93 mph on the radar gun. Perkins is expected to pitch again Saturday, March 21, and Tuesday, March 24.

Fantasy Tip: Perkins seems to be recovered from his oblique ailment, and if he doesn't have any setbacks, he should be ready to pitch on opening day. Consider Perkins a midrange closing option for your fantasy squad, and he may come at a discount because he's dealt with an injury in camp.

Twins | Glen Perkins throws 'pen

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 11:32:09 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Glen Perkins (oblique) had a successful bullpen session with no setbacks Tuesday, March 17, and he'll pitch in a minor league game Thursday, March 19. Perkins has been dealing with a mild right oblique strain. He could make his spring debut this weekend if all goes well Thursday. Perkins is expected to be ready for the start of the season if he doesn't have any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Because he's a reliever, Perkins doesn't need many innings or outings in spring training to be regular season-ready. Right now, he may be going at a nice value in fantasy drafts as a midrange closing option. Take advantage if you can.

Twins | Glen Perkins has enough time

Tue, 17 Mar 2015 09:56:54 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Glen Perkins (oblique) should have enough time to get ready for the start of the regular season as long as he doesn't suffer any setbacks, according to general manager Terry Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Oblique injuries are tricky, so don't be surprised if he isn't ready for opening day. The injury may make Perkins a value pick on draft day, so keep that in mind when you're searching for midrange closers in the middle rounds of your draft.

Twins | Glen Perkins plans to play catch Friday

Wed, 11 Mar 2015 14:28:06 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Glen Perkins (oblique) said his right oblique strain is improving, and he is scheduled to play catch Friday, March 13. Perkins will throw off a mound again Saturday, March 14, if all goes well Friday. He still expects to be ready for opening day.

Fantasy Tip: Perkins has 70 saves over the past two seasons, and as long as he is healthy, he'll be the go-to man in the ninth for Minnesota. Continue to check back for updates on Perkins' progress this spring. There could be a lot of room for profit, if Perkins begins sliding too deep in drafts.

Twins | Another setback for Glen Perkins

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 11:12:38 -0700

Minnesota Twins RP Glen Perkins (side) shut down his bullpen session with pain in his right side again Monday, March 9. He'll meet with a team doctor Tuesday, March 10, but is ready to miss several days of spring workouts. Perkins said he felt something pull on his right side similar to what happened Friday, March 6. He thinks he stopped before he made the injury worse, though, and he feels there is time for him to be ready for opening day.

Fantasy Tip: Keep an eye on what the Twins team doctor has to say about Perkins' injury. The good news is that his forearm injury doesn't seem to be a problem. However, there's a realistic chance that he won't be ready for the start of the season, so you'll need to downgrade him a tad in your closer rankings. Casey Fien is likely to see the first shot at saves if Perkins misses any time, but he's probably not worth a draft pick in standard leagues unless Perkins is certain to start the year on the disabled list.
