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.

Thu, 24 Jul 2014 11:43:57 -0700

Twins | Kohl Stewart scratched

Wed, 23 Jul 2014 21:42:22 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Kohl Stewart (shoulder) was scratched from his start with Class A Cedar Rapids Wednesday, July 23, as he is dealing with "a little shoulder soreness," according to Twins director of minor league operations Brad Steil.

Fantasy Tip: Stewart is one of the team's top prospects, and he joins OF Byron Buxton (wrist) and 3B Miguel Sano (elbow) on the shelf. Stewart is a long way from the majors, but those in dynasty leagues certainly need to know his name.
