  1. Twins Minor League Report (7/17): Kohl Stewart Looks Like an Ace!

    The Twins didn't lose today, and they haven't lost a baseball game for almost a week! The Twins return to the diamond on Friday, fresh off the All Star fun in Minneapolis, and are riding a hot stretch, having won five of their last seven games.

    With the All Star games over in the Minor Leagues as well, we have a full slate of Minor League action to discuss.

  3. Twins Minor League Report (7/10): Virgil Vasquez Goes the Distance

    The Twins picked up a win on Thursday night thanks to another big game from Kendrys Morales against his former team. Morales had an important two-run double to help stretch the Twins' lead. The Twins have now won three straight games and head out to Colorado for some interleague play against the Rockies and Justin Morneau, Michael Cuddyer and LaTroy Hawkins.

    Let's take a look at the Minor Leagues.

  4. Twins Minor League Report (07/08): Alex Meyer Shines, Mike Kvasnicka Glows

    The Twins pulled out a late night win against the Mariners. Phil Hughes pitched 7.1 shutout innings and Sam Fuld hit a go-ahead home run, his first as a Twin. Brian Dozier hit an RBI sac fly to increase the lead to 2-0 late in the game and the bullpen shut down the Mariners bats.

    Ricky Nolasco was put on the 15-day Disabled List with a sore pitching elbow. The Twins have recalled Chris Herrmann to take his spot on the 25-man roster, giving Gardy a third catcher ...
  5. Twins Minor League Report (7/3): Alex Meyer Bounces Back

    The Twins took an early lead against the Yankees and Masahiro Tanaka but could not hold as the Yankees came storming back in the fifth inning with a couple of home runs against Phil Hughes. The Twins tried making a game of it, but the Yankees ran the score up to 7-4 and the Twins did not have enough firepower to hang in.

    Lots of tight games down in the Minor League system, as every full season affiliate played a one- or two-run game. Let's get to it.

  6. Twins Minor League Report (6/28): Bryan Haar Homers Twice

    When it rains, it pours. That was certainly the case Saturday in Minneapolis as the Twin Cities was drenched in yet another big rain storm. But it was also true down in Arlington where the Twins lost yet another road game to run their road losing streak to nine games. Kyle Gibson takes the hill on Sunday with a chance to send the Twins home on a positive note.

  7. Twins Minor League Report (6/26): Nick Gordon Continues to Hit!

    The Twins extended their road losing streak to seven games and were swept out of Anaheim after another ineffective Ricky Nolasco Start. Nolasco has been a disaster in just about every start he has made after his Twins debut.

    With Danny Santana dealing with a sore hamstring and the the Twins already short on middle infielders, the Twins demoted Yohan Pino and called up Jorge Polanco all the way from High-A Fort Myers prior to yesterday's game. Polanco becomes the first Twins player ...
  8. Twins Minor League Report (6/19): Red Wings Storm Back

    Thirty-year old Yohan Pino made his Major League debut on Thursday night, after nearly ten full years pitching in the Minor Leagues. Pino pitched well, yielding just two runs over seven innings to go along with seven strike outs. Like Andrew Albers before him, Pino will have to prove he has staying power after a strong initial outing.

  9. Twins Minor League Report (6/12): Pino Wins Again!

    The Twins did not play on Thursday, but that does not mean they were idle. Reports are that center fielder Sam Fuld is ready to join the Twins on Friday in Detroit, and that catcher Eric Fryer has been recalled to take the place of Josmil Pinto. The Twins have not announced a corresponding roster move to make room for Sam Fuld, but Aaron Hicks is a likely candidate to either go on the Disable List with a bum shoulder, or be demoted to AAA to work on hitting right handed against right handed pitchers. ...
  10. Twins Minor League Report (6/5): Gilmartin Shines, Again

    The Twins took an early four-run lead courtesy of an Oswaldo Arcia grand slam that nearly landed in the Target Field Plaza OUTSIDE of Gate 34. Unfortunately the home team, dressed handsomely in powder blue throwback uniforms, could not hold the lead as Correia and the bullpen let the lead slip away and the Twins failed to rally.

  11. Twins Minor League Report (5/29): Jason Wheeler-Dealer!

    The Twins fell behind the Rangers early and could not catch the Rangers down the stretch, despite Josh Willingham's best game of the year. The Twins open a three-game series in New York on Friday night, and then begin a four-game home and home series with the Brewers beginning on Monday night in Milwaukee.

  12. Twins Draft Preview: Kyle Freeland

    In his most recent mock draft, Jim Callis of MLBPipeline.com had the Twins taking Tyler Kolek at the fifth spot, but among the other candidates he listed the Twins might be looking at he included Kyle Freeland.

  13. Twins Minor League Report (5/23): Arcia and Willingham lead the Red Wings

    The Twins fell behind early in San Francisco and could not take advantage of six walks from starter Tim Lincecum in the first six innings. Brian Dozier and Joe Mauer both had two hits at the top of the lineup but the rest of the Twins batters had a tough day against the Giants.

    Down in the Minor Leagues the Twins affiliates went 2-2.

  14. Twins Minor League Report (5/22): Fort Myers' Back-to-Back Jacks

    The Twins were off on Thursday and begin a three game series with the San Francisco Giants on Friday night. The Twins have been playing well against good baseball teams over the past couple of weeks, but winning a series on the road against a surprisingly tough Giants team will be a real test for the Twins.

    It was a tough night in the Minor Leagues for the Twins affiliates, with the
    Twins organization picking up only one win in the system.
