Twins | Ricky Nolasco targeting mid-August return

Fri, 01 Aug 2014 17:59:14 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Ricky Nolasco (elbow) is expected to return to the team's rotation as soon as Friday, Aug. 15, barring any setbacks.

Fantasy Tip: Nolasco has been a disaster for the team this season, posting a 5-7 record with a 5.90 ERA and a 1.62 WHIP while the opponent is batting .330 against him. Only fantasy owners in deeper AL-only fantasy leagues need to bother with him at this point.

Twins | Brian Dozier has swollen thumb

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 15:56:00 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier (thumb) planned to take batting practice Thursday, July 31, and be available off the bench. He jammed his left thumb sliding into third base Wednesday, July 30.

Fantasy Tip: Dozier's situation looks day-to-day for now. Take him out of your daily lineups and hope he returns tomorrow night.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki lands extension

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 14:30:45 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki signed a two-year, $12 million contract extension Thursday, July 31. The deal also includes a vesting option for the 2017 season. Suzuki is hitting .304 with two home runs and 41 RBIs on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki has been one of the few bright spots this year for the Twinkies. He won't provide much power, but with the way he's swinging the lumber this year, he's useful in most formats when he's in the lineup.

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:32:40 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Kennys Vargas' call-up is more of a long-term plan, unless he fails miserably.

Twins | Extension for Kurt Suzuki?

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 09:00:06 -0700

The Minnesota Twins and C Kurt Suzuki have had discussions about an extension, and there's a reasonable chance they reach an agreement.

Fantasy Tip: Suzuki's batting average bubble should burst sometime later this season, but he's still valuable in two-catcher setups.

Twins | Tommy Milone to join Twins soon

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 08:28:28 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone is expected to join the big-league club soon despite being sent to Triple-A Rochester. He started Tuesday, July 29, for the Oakland Athletics' Triple-A Sacramento.

Fantasy Tip: They're probably just keeping him on hold until his next turn. Milone should be grabbed in deep games; regaining a rotation spot will help him continue his solid season for the back end of fantasy rotations.

Twins | Recall Kennys Vargas

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 08:23:45 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Kennys Vargas was recalled from Double-A New Britain.

Fantasy Tip: As noted in his previous update, Vargas could be a deep-league asset on the chance the power he displayed at Double-A shines through.

Twins | Tommy Milone reporting to AAA

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 08:16:45 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Tommy Milone will report to Triple-A Rochester.

Fantasy Tip: Bummer. Initial guesses said he'd join this rotation in this pitcher-friendly park. He still might in due time, but the mild deep-league payoff will have to wait. Maybe he's worth a stash.

Twins | Kennys Vargas coming up

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 08:08:02 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B/DH Kennys Vargas will be called up from Double-A New Britain.

Fantasy Tip: The switch-hitter is having a standout year at New Britain with a .281 BA, 17 HRs and 63 RBIs in 356 at-bats. He's an AL-only grab with deep-mixed potential who could find himself in the lineup at least a few times per week.

Twins | Send Sam Fuld to Oakland

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 08:02:30 -0700

Updating a previous report, the Minnesota Twins sent OF Sam Fuld to the Oakland Athletics for SP Tommy Milone.

Fantasy Tip: Fuld, who started 2014 with the Athletics, probably will start a few times a week in Oakland's platoon-laden outfield. They'll probably value his defense significantly, though. He can be valuable in five-outfielder mixed leagues.

Twins | Tommy Milone acquired

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 07:56:15 -0700

The Minnesota Twins acquired SP Tommy Milone from the Oakland Athletics for an undisclosed package.

Fantasy Tip: Milone's value may decrease slightly due to the decline in potential run support, but he was doing well with a rotation spot in Oakland's pitcher-friendly park. He's a deep-mixed add.

Twins | Joe Mauer takes batting practice

Wed, 30 Jul 2014 17:41:53 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer (oblique) was able to take batting practice in the cage Wednesday, July 30, and no issues were reported.

Fantasy Tip: Mauer is slowly making progress in his recovery, but fantasy owners need to be patient. Keep him reserved in all fantasy leagues until he is officially activated from the 15-day disabled list and able to prove his health in a full game or two without any setbacks. The exact timetable of when that will be is still up in the air.
