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 | Tyler Duffey won't be shut down

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 15:58:56 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey isn't being shut down, according to general manager Terry Ryan. The team will continue to monitor him on a start-by-start basis. Duffey starts against the Detroit Tigers Saturday, Sept. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Duffey ($6,000, 12.0% of cap) has allowed more than three earned runs just once in his eight starts this year, and it came all the way back on Aug. 5. He's struck out a surprising 8.7 hitters per nine innings, too, and he's not a bad option for your second pitching spot on FantasyScore tomorrow.

Twins | Phil Hughes scratched from next start

Wed, 16 Sep 2015 17:14:26 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey will start in place of SP Phil Hughes Sunday, Sept. 20, according to general manager Terry Ryan.

Fantasy Tip: Hughes ($5,600, 11.2% of cap) allowed three runs on six hits over three innings in a loss to the Detroit Tigers Tuesday, Sept. 15, in his first start since coming off the disabled list due to a back injury. Manager Paul Molitor said he wasn't sharp and had difficulty keeping the ball down. Duffey ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his last six starts and has four quality starts over that stretch, so he could be worthy of consideration as a value option in FantasyScore.

Twins | Tyler Duffey will be skipped

Tue, 08 Sep 2015 21:36:48 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey will be skipped in the rotation, manager Paul Molitor said Tuesday, Sept. 8. The move is "just precautionary," and Molitor said Duffey is not being shut down.

Fantasy Tip: Duffey ($4,400, 8.8% of cap) should be avoided in FantasyScore until he can officially return to the rotation. It is uncertain when he'll make his next scheduled appearance.

Twins | Tyler Duffey coming back up

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 10:49:25 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey will be recalled from Class AAA Rochester to start against the Cleveland Indians Saturday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Duffey was battered for six earned runs in just two innings in his major league debut in a spot start last week against the Toronto Blue Jays. This next start will be against a much more manageable opponent, but Duffey is still better left untouched in daily games.

Twins | Tyler Duffey sent down

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 09:00:14 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Tyler Duffey was sent to Class AAA Rochester Thursday, Aug. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Duffey ($3,400, 6.8% of cap) made just one start and allowed six earned runs in only two innings. In fairness, it was against the majors' highest-scoring team in the Toronto Blue Jays. We may not see Duffey again until rosters expand, and even then, he may not start again in 2015. Tommy Milone is expected back soon, so the Twins may use a spot starter in his place until then.

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.
