Minnesota Twins news, rumors and injuries
Fri, 29 May 2015 14:32:16 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Hunter ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) continues to hold his own at age 39, going 46-for-164 (.280) with seven home runs and 29 RBI this season. In his career against Buehrle, he's 23-for-93 (.247) with three home runs and 16 RBI. Hunter is hitting an even .300 (18-for-60) with three of his seven homers against lefties this year, too, making him a pretty safe FantasyScore investment tonight.

Minnesota Twins OF Eddie Rosario is not in the starting lineup Friday, May 29. OF Shane Robinson is starting in left field and hitting second in the batting order against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle.
Fantasy Tip: Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has never hit more than three home runs in a major league season, and he doesn't have much speed, either (career-high five stolen bases). That makes him a very uninspiring FantasyScore option, even while hitting in the two-hole for a team that has been very productive at home this year.

Minnesota Twins OF Aaron Hicks hit a two-run home run in a winning effort Wednesday, May 27, for his first home run in 171 at-bats since April of last season. He finished the game 1-for-2 with two runs, two RBI and a walk to raise his average to .240.
Fantasy Tip: Hicks ($2,400, 4.8% of cap) hasn't done much offensively since returning to Minnesota, but perhaps his biggest contribution has been drastically improving the team's outfield defense in center field. If he can improve his offense, he may hold off Byron Buxton just a little longer.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove Suzuki ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) from your lineups Wednesday. Over his past 14 games, Suzuki has six runs, three RBI and a .280/.351/.400 slash line. He should continued to be viewed as a low-end catching option in the majority of formats. Hermann is nothing more than a desperation flier in daily contests.

Fantasy Tip: Santana will likely crack the rotation at some point, but he is still a couple of months away from having any use at FantasyScore.
Mon, 25 May 2015 10:11:26 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Nunez ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has not seen much playing time lately and has only one hit in five at-bats this month. Owners probably should avoid using Nunez in their starting lineups.
Mon, 25 May 2015 10:00:20 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Santana ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) is receiving another day off but should return to the lineup soon. Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has a .279 batting average this month, but owners should be able to find better options to use.
Mon, 25 May 2015 01:48:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Rosario ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is definitely hitting, but it's hard to read the Twins. They tend to send down players who are hitting and keep around the ones that aren't. Still, it doesn't look like Rosario is going anywhere, and as long as he's driving in runs he should be safe as a low-cost outfielder.

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton has 11 triples on the season and nine in May alone. It is part of a season that has Buxton hitting .267 with five doubles, five home runs and 33 RBIs at Class AA Chattanooga.
Fantasy Tip: Buxton, the Twins' top prospect, could be in line for a callup later this year if this keeps up. If you can secure his services now in a deeper league where prospects are allowed, pick him up.
Sun, 24 May 2015 10:40:11 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Robinson ($1,800, 3.6% of cap) has struggled in his limited playing time in May and is hitting .179 during the month. Owners on FantasyScore should be able to find better options to use in their lineups.
Sun, 24 May 2015 10:36:00 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Santana ($2,900, 5.8% of cap) probably will return to the lineup in the next day or two. Eduardo Escobar ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will be the starting shortstop and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore since he is hitting .298 this month.
Sun, 24 May 2015 10:28:35 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Suzuki ($2,100, 4.2% of cap) likely is receiving a day off and should return in the next day or two. Herrmann ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has not has much success at the plate this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.
Sat, 23 May 2015 17:55:38 -0700
Fantasy Tip: The nine strikeouts were his most in a game this season, but overall, May ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) hasn't showed the game-to-game consistency to be considered anything more than a risky matchup play at FantasyScore.
Fri, 22 May 2015 23:59:45 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Schafer ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is on the disabled list until the end of May, and it could be a little longer even though the injury is a mild sprain of his medial collateral ligament. Keep an eye on his progress.
Fri, 22 May 2015 14:35:39 -0700
Fantasy Tip: Arcia ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) was hitting .276 (16-for-58) with two home runs and eight RBI before his injury, and he's likely the team's best option in left field when he returns. However, he's merely a matchup play for FantasyScore users.
