Minnesota Twins

Following a rough season-opening performance, Bailey Ober has been exceptional for the Minnesota Twins. Ober will eye a fifth straight winning decision this season while trying to continue his success against the Guardians on Saturday evening when the teams meet in Cleveland. Ober (4-1, 3.77 ERA) opened his fourth major league season by allowing eight runs and nine hits, including three homers, in 1 1/3 innings of Minnesota's 11-0 loss at Kansas City on March 31.

Following a one-run loss, Minnesota manager Rocco Baldelli was having a hard time processing what had just happened to his ballclub. This one was tough on the Twins. “There was some stuff going on today,” Baldelli said. Several questionable pitch calls and a confusing rule violation tripped up the Twins, who dropped their fourth straight game Friday night, 3-2 as the Cleveland Guardians got a home run in the eighth inning from José Ramírez after Minnesota reliever Jhoan Duran got squeezed by plate umpire Roberto Ortiz.

When Byron Buxton landed on the injured list earlier this month with right knee inflammation, he had played in nearly every game to that point, appearing in 28 of the team's 30 contests. Most of that had come in center field. When Buxton comes back from the injured list — he met the team in Cleveland on Friday morning after playing in two rehab games with the Triple-A Saints and is likely to be activated ahead of Saturday's game — his usage is expected to be more or less similar to what it had been. “That's what I'm hopeful for,” manager Rocco Baldelli said.

Clarke Schmidt cruised to a career-long eight shutout innings after Anthony Volpe led off the game with a home run that sparked a three-run first inning, and the New York Yankees finished a three-game sweep with a 5-0 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Thursday. Schmidt (5-1) scattered a double and two singles without a walk while striking out eight batters and winning his third consecutive start. “I was happy he left me out there for as long as he did,” said Schmidt, who has allowed three runs or fewer in each of his nine starts this season.

The last time the Twins and Yankees met, the Twins clinched a season series against its longtime tormenter for the first time in 22 years, and did so by scoring six, six and six runs. Yankee retribution arrived at Target Field this week, and as it was perhaps preordained a year ago, it felt biblical.

May 16—The Minnesota Twins have one of the most intriguing rituals in baseball. Players will tap an unopened summer sausage before their at bats for good luck. It started during the April 24 game against the Chicago White Sox, and the sausage has made an impact. The Twins are 15-4 since the sausage came along after going 9-14 before. It's the latest example of how superstition has a seat at ...

As well as the Twins have played over the past three weeks, they learned Tuesday night that they couldn't survive giving the New York Yankees, the team with the best record in the American League, extra outs and free bases. Willi Castro, playing center field, misplayed a routine fly ball from Juan Soto in the first inning, blinded by the sun before making a late break toward the ball. After ...

Ryan Jeffers had a rare day off on Sunday, a chance to sit back while his teammates took care of business against the Toronto Blue Jays. The Twins'[ catcher is not used to playing this much – the Twins typically employ a 50-50 split behind the plate – but these days, he’s made it nearly impossible to take his bat out of the lineup. If he’s not catching, it’s likely he’s still in the lineup as ...
