Eduardo Nunez’s time with the Yankees ended after a decade when the infielder was traded to the Minnesota Twins for left-hander Miguel Sulbaran. The deal was announced Monday. The Twins assigned Nunez to Triple-A Rochester. Signed by the Yankees in 2004, Nunez came up to the major leagues in 2010 and was seen as a possible successor to Derek Jeter at shortstop.
The Minnesota Twins placed utilityman Jason Bartlett on the disabled list Monday and recalled catcher-outfielder Chris Herrmann from Triple-A Rochester. Bartlett sprained his left ankle Sunday at Cleveland after replacing left fielder Josh Willingham, who was hit by a pitch on the left wrist. Willingham was out of the lineup for Minnesota’s home opener against Oakland, and right fielder Oswaldo Arcia was sidelined for the third straight game because of a sore right wrist.
It’s finally here — the day many winter-weary Minnesotans have been counting down to for months: the Minnesota Twins Home Opener at Target Field.
Chris Colabello drove in four runs, Brian Dozier scored three times and the Minnesota Twins outslugged the Cleveland Indians 10-7 on Sunday.
It looks like the weather will be cooperating as the Minnesota Twins get ready for their home opener at Target Field Monday.
Games have already been played for a week all across the majors. The Minnesota Twins, after averaging 97 losses over the past three seasons, could be in for another tough year.
Kyle Gibson limited Cleveland to one run in his season debut after Brian Dozier led off the game with a home run, leading Minnesota to a 7-3 win over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday and giving Twins manager Ron Gardenhire his 1,000th career victory.
Nick Swisher hit a two-run homer in the sixth inning, two batters after Yan Gomes connected for a solo shot, leading the Cleveland Indians to a 7-2 home-opening win over the Minnesota Twins on Friday.
Chris Colabello had a career-high six RBIs and doubled twice, Oswaldo Arcia hit a go-ahead triple and the Minnesota Twins avoided a season-opening sweep with a 10-9 comeback win Thursday over the Chicago White Sox.
Ron Gardenhire won his first replay challenge, but the Minnesota Twins’ manager conceded afterward that it cost him his starting pitcher. Kevin Correia came out after a lengthy delay, the Twins bullpen couldn’t hold a lead and the White Sox beat Minnesota 7-6 on Wednesday. “The 20-second challenge that took a long time,” Gardenhire said of the review in the top of the seventh inning. “I don’t know what was going on, but it ended up taking a long period of time and you end up losing your starter because of it.”
Former Minnesota Twins pitcher Frank Viola is resting comfortably after heart surgery. His children, Frank and Kaley, had said on Twitter that the 53-year-old Viola was scheduled for open-heart surgery Wednesday. The pitcher retired as a player following his 1996 season with the Toronto Blue Jays.
Former Minnesota manager Tom Kelly and Twins Hall of Famer Bert Blyleven have been picked to manage in the All-Star Futures game at Target Field on July 13. Kelly led the Twins to World Series titles in 1987 and 1991.
There’s going to be even more delicious food choices at Target Field this year. On Tuesday, the Minnesota Twins and their food partner, Delaware North Companies Sportservice, have announced the addition of a variety of specialty foods for the 2014 season.
Alejandro De Aza hit two homers, and Jose Abreu had two hits in his major league debut to back Chris Sale and lead the Chicago White Sox to a 5-3 season-opening victory over the Minnesota Twins on Monday.
