Thu, 10 Jul 2014 16:58:16 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer (oblique) is unlikely to return to the team right after the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Returning prematurely from oblique injuries isn't wise, which is why the Twins will make sure that Mauer is cautious with his rehab. You'll probably have to be really patient with this one.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco to DL

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 12:21:01 -0700

The Minnesota Twins will place SP Ricky Nolasco (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with a right elbow strain Tuesday, July 8. OF Chris Herrmann will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester. The move is retroactive to July 6. The Twins haven't announced who'll replace Nolasco in the rotation, but it could be SPs Samuel Deduno or Anthony Swarzak. Herrmann was batting .314 with two home runs and 15 RBIs with Rochester and had been splitting time between catcher and the outfield.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco should only be held onto in AL-only leagues at this point. Deduno or Swarzak likely only have short-term value in the starting rotation and aren't worth much consideration, aside from AL leagues.

Twins | Ricky Nolasco to undergo MRI

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 18:18:46 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco (elbow) is dealing with a sore elbow and he will undergo an MRI Tuesday, July 8.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco has had a rocky first season in Minneapolis, and an injury would not be great news if he hopes to turn things around anytime soon. He is only worth using in deeper AL-only fantasy formats at this point, and he should be dropped in those formats, too, if his elbow ailment turns out to be something which forces him to the 15-day disabled list for a while.

Twins | Miguel Sano cleared to throw

Mon, 07 Jul 2014 13:55:25 -0700

Minnesota Twins 3B Miguel Sano (elbow) has been cleared to start a throwing program after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow. He was examined by Dr. David Altchek Monday, July 7. It's unknown if Sano will be able to serve as a designated hitter in minor league games late this year, but the team is hoping he can. Sano will be allowed to take part in the Arizona Fall League and Dominican Winter League. He could be cleared to swing a bat next month.

Fantasy Tip: Sano is the future for Minnesota at third base. His raw power at the dish makes him a prized prospect next year.
