Twins | Kyle Gibson wins rotation spot

Fri, 21 Mar 2014 10:25:33 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson has won the team's final rotation spot to begin the season, which will move SP Samuel Deduno to the bullpen. Gibson posted a 2.70 ERA in four spring outings (two starts).

Fantasy Tip: Gibson is one the the best pitching prospects coming into the big leagues. He's more than a year removed from Tommy John surgery, too. However, he doesn't miss a ton of bats, although his home park should help him in that arena. He's worth a stash in AL-only leagues now that he's won a spot.

Twins | Samuel Deduno aided by Ervin Santana signing

Wed, 12 Mar 2014 07:25:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Samuel Deduno appears to be the club's "biggest beneficiary" of Ervin Santana signing with the Atlanta Braves, according to Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press. Santana was offered a deal by Minnesota, but the fact it didn't work out strengthens Deduno's case for a rotation gig with the Twins. He has made a full recovery from surgery to repair a frayed labrum and rotator cuff in September. In three spring games, he has a 1.35 ERA with a .227 opponents' batting average in 6 2/3 innings. Manager Ron Gardenhire endorsed Deduno after his three-shutout-inning appearance Sunday, March 9.

Fantasy Tip: He's battling Mike Pelfrey and Kyle Gibson, among others, and AL-only diggers should be the only ones concerned here for now.

Twins | Samuel Deduno has early edge for No. 5?

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 17:23:53 -0700

Minnesota Twins SPs Samuel Deduno, Vance Worley, Scott Diamond and Kyle Gibson are competing for the No. 5 spot in the rotation, and assistant GM Rob Antony has said he doesn't believe there's a clear-cut front-runner. Deduno, Worley and Diamond don't have options remaining.

MLB.com reporter Rhett Bolinger believes Deduno appears to be the slight favorite because of his success in 2013 (3.83 ERA, 67 strikeouts and 41 walks in 108 innings). He appears to be healthy after having gone arthroscopic surgery on his right shoulder last September, too. Manager Ron Gardenhire indicated that he'd like Deduno to make the club one way or another following the right-hander's three scoreless innings on Sunday, March 9. "He's filthy," Gardenhire remarked.

Fantasy Tip: Whoever wins this job is unlikely to have relevance in mixed leagues, but all of them have either produced the results or boasted the promise, or both, to be useful in them. Deduno and Gibson fit the bill most, but it's mostly AL-only managers who should be following them.

Twins | No front-runner for final rotation spot

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 15:01:39 -0700

There appears to be no clear-cut front-runner for the Minnesota Twins' final rotation spot between SPs Samuel Deduno, Vance Worley, Scott Diamond and Kyle Gibson, but Deduno may be the slight favorite because of his success last year. Deduno has looked healthy this spring after having arthroscopic surgery on his shoulder last September. Manager Ron Gardenhire indicated he'd like Deduno on the roster as either a starter or reliever this year. Worley is also healthy after having shoulder problems last year, and he's roughly 25 pounds lighter than 2013. Gibson might be on the outside looking in at the end of camp, because he still has minor league options left.
