|Twins | Jose Berrios knocked out early|
Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:38:07 -0700
Minnesota Twins SP Jose Berrios allowed five runs on six hits and struck out five in four innings in his loss to the Cleveland Indians Wednesday, April 27. "Jose was probably a little amped up," Twins manager Paul Molitor said. "I don't think we saw him at his best. He competed fairly well. Command wasn't particularly sharp."
Fantasy Tip: Berrios is arguably their best pitching prospect and one of the better prospects in the majors. He's worth holding onto to see if he can harness his command.

|Twins | Jose Berrios not on strict limit|
Wed, 27 Apr 2016 11:15:17 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Berrios had a 2-0 record, 1.06 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 10.6 K/9 in three starts for Class AAA Rochester this year, and he had nothing left to prove in the minors as Minnesota's top pitching prospect. With both Ervin Santana (back) and Kyle Gibson (shoulder) on the DL, Berrios could stick around for a while if he pitches well. He should've already been owned in AL-only and dynasty leagues, and he certainly deserves consideration for ownership in mixed leagues, as well.

|Twins | Ervin Santana likely to DL|
Tue, 26 Apr 2016 11:09:24 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Berrios is Minnesota's top pitching prospect, and his upside is very high with three above-average swing-and-miss offerings. He should be scooped up anywhere that he's available, even if his stay in the big leagues is short once Santana returns from injury. Berrios could also take the spot of struggling starter Kyle Gibson eventually if he pitches well in his first MLB taste.

|Twins | Jose Berrios coming up for Twins|
Tue, 26 Apr 2016 10:15:05 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The Twins are likely calling Berrios, their top pitching prospect, up to insert him into the starting rotation, so he could be taking the spot of Kyle Gibson. Berrios, just 21, went 14-5 with a 2.87 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 175 K's in 166 1/3 frames in two minor league stops last year. He has three above-average pitches than can all generate swings and misses. Berrios should've already been stashed in AL-only and dynasty leagues, but he'll now become a popular waiver wire target in all other mixed formats.

|Twins | Jose Berrios with dominant showing|
Fri, 22 Apr 2016 08:03:32 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Berrios could be an option to come up after the Super Two deadline and give the Twins a dominant arm its rotation lacks. He's worth stashing in AL-only leagues, and keep an eye on him for mixed leagues.

|Twins | Jose Berrios roughed up by minor leaguers|
Tue, 15 Mar 2016 11:08:53 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Berrios was making a strong case to crack the rotation to start the season, so a rough outing against supposedly weaker hitters isn't encouraging. However, an impressive bounce-back start next time out could be more telling than his results Tuesday. Continue to monitor Berrios leading into the season. He remains a solid late-round grab in cavernous mixed and AL-only formats, and he could even enter the conversation in mixed leagues with a strong finish this spring.

|Twins | Jose Berrios padding case for rotation spot|
Thu, 10 Mar 2016 14:36:50 -0800
Fantasy Tip: Berrios boasts excellent mound presence and control, and he posted a 9.5 K/9 over two stops in the minors last season. He'll compete for a rotation spot to open the season. Monitor his progress during the spring and consider him as an upside target in the endgame of mixed league drafts. He is a nice grab in cavernous and AL-only formats, too.

|Twins | Ricky Nolasco not guaranteed a spot|
Tue, 02 Feb 2016 11:57:50 -0800
Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco is not guaranteed a spot in the starting rotation to open the season, according to manager Paul Molitor. Molitor said SP Tyler Duffey "has a really good chance" to crack the rotation. SP Tommy Milone is a player that will battle with Nolasco for a job, and RP Trevor May will receive a look, as well. SP Jose Berrios will receive a look and could become a rotation option sometime this season.
Fantasy Tip: Nolasco has posted ERAs over 5.00 each of the last two seasons and pitched only 37 1/3 innings in 2015 because of injury. It's a stretch to think he can help many fantasy owners outside of deep AL-only leagues if he wins a rotation spot. Duffey, despite a lack of pitch speed, can generate strikeouts with his diverse arsenal. He's not a bad gamble in deep mixed leagues in a pitcher's park if he wins a job.

|Twins | Jose Berrios won't join Minnesota |
Wed, 02 Sep 2015 16:57:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Berrios is a top pitching prospect for the Twins, and he owns a 2.90 ERA with a 7.4 K/9 over 161 1/3 innings through two minor league stops this season. He is a stash candidate in deep keeper/dynasty formats, but he can be dropped in all one-year leagues.

|Twins | Tommy Milone on DL|
Tue, 04 Aug 2015 09:19:55 -0700
Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a strained left elbow Monday, Aug. 3. SP Tyler Duffey will be called up from Class AAA Rochester to make his major league debut Wednesday, Aug. 5, against the Toronto Blue Jays. Duffey went 4-6 with a 2.72 ERA for Rochester this year. SP Jose Berrios was in consideration, too, but the Twins felt Duffey was more prepared. Milone's DL trip is precautionary, and manager Paul Molitor said Milone's elbow was "in good shape" structurally. SP Trevor May remains in a relief role.
Fantasy Tip: Duffey will be a cheap option on FantasyScore if you want to build your lineup with studs at other positions. However, a matchup against the highest run-scoring team in the major leagues isn't an ideal place to use the young right-hander.
