Twins | Brian Dozier getting foot down earlier

Thu, 17 Apr 2014 16:13:55 -0700

Minnesota Twins 2B Brian Dozier said he worked last season to get his foot down earlier, which allows him to have more power at the plate. He said the change started to occur in mid-May of last season. "I was missing a bunch of fastballs pretty much down the middle and didn't know why," he said.

Fantasy Tip: There isn't much upside here, but Dozier gives you nice power from the position. Plenty of room for regression here, so be aware.

Twins | Josh Willingham headed to DL

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 16:47:06 -0700

The Minnesota Twins will place OF Josh Willingham (wrist) on the disabled list Saturday, April 12, and will call up RP Michael Tonkin in a corresponding move.

Fantasy Tip: More good news for the owners of Chris Colabello, as he'll continue to see consistent playing time with Willingham and Oswaldo Arcia (wrist) out. Darin Mastroianni is also worth owning, in AL-only leagues, with the Twinkies thin in the outfield.

Twins | DL possible for Josh Willingham

Fri, 11 Apr 2014 14:37:42 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Josh Willingham (wrist) may head to the disabled list if his wrist issue lingers through this weekend, according to bench coach and acting manager Terry Steinbach.

Fantasy Tip: This would bode well for Jason Kubel and Chris Colabello remaining in the lineup. Both are worth an add in deep mixed leagues. Kubel, being a LHB, might have more shelf life in this instance.

Twins | Josh Willingham not ready yet

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 14:55:09 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Josh Willingham (wrist) was held out for the third straight game Thursday, April 10, with a bruised left wrist. However, he took batting practice for the second straight day and is expected to move to BP on the field Friday, April 11. The team is waiting for the swelling in Willingham's wrist to completely subside before he's back in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Consider Willingham's injury a day-to-day issue right now. Once he's ready, Darin Mastroianni will become the club's fourth outfielder off the bench.

Twins | Byron Buxton to begin at extended ST

Thu, 10 Apr 2014 10:12:23 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton (wrist) is expected to resume baseball activities soon and will start his season at extended spring training. He's likely to report to Class AA sometime in May.

Fantasy Tip: Entering spring training, Buxton was one of baseball's top prospects and a likely candidate to make a big fantasy impact. The wrist injury has put a damper on that excitement. Depending on how he recovers, Buxton probably won't realistically make an impact at the major league level this year until late in the year.
