  1. Twins Minor League Report (4/15): Kernels Streak Ends

    For the second Tuesday in a row, weather played havoc on the Twins farm system.

    It has been a continuous quest for the Twins to solidify their options up the middle. In recent seasons, it has seemed like a revolving door at some key positions on the field and this hasn't been beneficial to the club. One of the most problematic areas for the Twins in recent memory has been their search for a shortstop that could fit into their long-term plans. This search continues and it's hard to see an end in sight.

    In the last decade, the ...

  14. What's the next step for Brian Dozier?

    Word came out of the Twins organization on Tuesday night that Brian Dozier was going to be sent back to Triple-A Rochester after what has been a disappointing rookie campaign.
