Twins | Alex Meyer throwing new changeup

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 14:55:46 -0700

Minnesota Twins SP Alex Meyer has switched to a new changeup, a three-fingered changeup instead of a circle changeup. "It was really encouraging," assistant general manager Rob Antony said. "He threw 15 changeups. He changed his grip. I think he's going to break that out and use it more in the games. So that's a positive thing. Obviously, he pitched well with 11 strikeouts and three walks. He was pretty dominant." Meyer had a career-high 11 strikeouts in 6 2/3 scoreless innings with Triple-A Rochester Wednesday, April 23.

Twins | Chris Colabello delivering

Thu, 24 Apr 2014 06:28:39 -0700

Minnesota Twins 1B Chris Colabello drove in four runs Wednesday, April 23. He leads the league with 26 RBIs.

Fantasy Tip: Colabello is a tricky fantasy asset. He's a 30-year-old journeyman that the average fantasy owner knows little about. You could keep him and hope this advanced-age surge is for real or sell high and earn a profit from your waiver claim or low draft pick.

Twins | Byron Buxton to play in games

Tue, 22 Apr 2014 13:43:07 -0700

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton (wrist) is scheduled to take batting practice Wednesday, April 23, and he could play in an extended spring game Thursday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: The best-case scenario is probably that Buxton is a September call-up this year. Wrist injuries often hurt a player's power production, too, so you'll have to keep an eye out for that. Buxton is a much better buy for the 2015 season now.

Sun, 20 Apr 2014 20:07:10 -0700

Minnesota Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he would have no problem with 1B Joe Mauer bunting when the opponents are using a shift against him. "I don't mind it a bit," Gardenhire said. "Joe's an on-base guy and a line-drive hitter. That's another weapon he can use."
