If the Minnesota Twins have any chance to get better coming off their fourth straight season of at least 90 losses, it all starts with the starting pitching.
It was a sunny, summer Sunday as some of the brightest prospects in baseball took to Target Field for the 2014 All-Star Futures Game. It was especially fun for Twins fans as they got their first look at prospects Jose Berrios, Kennys Vargas and Alex Meyer playing in their future home ballpark. Berrios was recently promoted from High-A Fort Meyers to AA-New Britain. So far, advancing a level hasn’t phased him.
The Minnesota Twins will send top pitching prospect Alex Meyer to the Futures Game at the All-Star events at Target Field next week. MLB announced Monday that Meyer will replace fellow right-hander and Triple-A Rochester teammate Trevor May at the exhibition Sunday. May has been out for more than a week with a strained right calf muscle.
The Minnesota Twins will have their three top prospects in camp next month: center fielder Byron Buxton, starting pitcher Alex Meyer and third baseman Miguel Sano. The Twins announced Thursday they invited 23 players not on the 40-man major league roster to spring training this year in Fort Myers, Fla.
The Minnesota Twins have remade their rotation after a rough time on the mound. They’ll have at least three new guys in the five-man group.
After being in the trade rumor mill for months, Denard Span is no longer a Minnesota Twin.
