Twins | Phil Hughes OK

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:44:39 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Phil Hughes (shin) was sore but "not as bad as he thought he might be" after being hit on the shin by a comebacker Thursday, July 24, according to manager Ron Gardenhire. Gardenhire believes Hughes will make his next start.

Fantasy Tip: Wait as long as you can before deciding to activate Hughes, but his matchup with the Padres is enticing.

Twins | Kyle Gibson encouraged by session

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:37:18 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (back) was pleased with his long-toss session from 120 feet and the 10 to 15 throws he made in the bullpen Friday, July 25. He's hopeful he can return to the rotation Tuesday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: The matchup against the Kansas City Royals would be favorable, but he's been living on borrowed statistical time and would probably be rusty. Do you need the stream in a deep mixed league?

Twins | Joe Mauer update

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 14:17:27 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer (oblique) has been hitting off a tee and going through the hitting progression. He doesn't yet have a timetable for live batting practice.

Fantasy Tip: This could drag into late August, diminishing Mauer's impact upon his return. It's looking like a lost season is nearly confirmed unless he can pick it up soon.

Twins | Logan Darnell starting Saturday

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 13:27:51 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Logan Darnell will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester to start Saturday, July 26, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Kyle Gibson (back) clearly isn't ready to go. Darnell is a risky spot start in AL-only leagues.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki has potential suitors

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 09:46:50 -0700

Minnesota Twins C Kurt Suzuki is the subject of trade interest by several teams, including the Baltimore Orioles and St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Both lost big-name catchers in Matt Wieters (elbow) for the rest of the season and Yadier Molina (thumb) for at least a big chunk of the remainder. Suzuki would receive an upgrade at either potential destination and would be a valuable league-crosser, even with his BA likely to drop a little.

Twins | Kurt Suzuki looking for fair annual value

Fri, 25 Jul 2014 01:20:10 -0700

Extension talks are ongoing between the Minnesota Twins and C Kurt Suzuki on a new contract. Suzuki reportedly wants a fair annual market value like those earned by Philadelphia Phillies C Carlos Ruiz (three years, $26 million), Miami Marlins C Jarrod Saltalamacchia ($21 million over three years), and free-agent C A.J. Pierzynski (one year, $8.25 million) over the last offseason.

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 20:36:32 -0700

Twins | Joe Mauer hits in cage

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 17:22:39 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer (oblique) hit in a cage Thursday, July 24. The next step likely will be Mauer taking part in live batting practice, but it is not known when that will happen.

Fantasy Tip: There does not appear to be a definite timetable for when Mauer will return for now. Owners should continue to hold onto him until he is able to return.

Twins | Byron Buxton returns

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 15:03:32 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton (wrist) is leading off and playing center field Thursday, July 24, for Single-A Fort Myers. Buxton missed five games after being hit by a pitch on his right wrist Friday, July 18.

Fantasy Tip: Buxton has only played 13 games all season. He is a must-own player in long-term keeper leagues, but a promotion to Minny is highly unlikely in 2014.

Twins | Kyle Gibson unlikely for Saturday

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 14:54:29 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kyle Gibson (back) is unlikely to start Saturday, July 26, due to back stiffness. The Twins will have to recall a pitcher to start if Gibson is unable to go.

Fantasy Tip: Check back for an official announcement. Benching Gibson until he proves his health isn't out of the question.
