New Phillies center fielder Ben Revere got off to a fast start against his former team with two hits and a steal Wednesday in Philadelphia’s 12-5 loss to the Minnesota Twins.
For a long stretch in Fort Meyers, the big question was: “Will the Twins ever beat the Yankees in the playoffs?” From six divisional titles in nine years to back-to-back last-place finishes – what has happened to the Twins?
The Minnesota Twins announced late Thursday morning that they have acquired right-handed pitchers Vance Worley and Trevor May from the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for outfielder Ben Revere.
Oakland left-hander Brett Anderson pitched seven innings in his first start since undergoing elbow surgery nearly 15 months ago and the Athletics beat the Minnesota Twins 4-1 on Tuesday night.
People inside the Vikings insist they are intent on making playing baseball a part of the new football stadium. If the NHL gets salary roll backs as part of their new collective bargaining agreement, it could be big savings for Craig Leipold on Zach Praise and Ryan Suter’s contracts. Suter chartered his own plane to be part of the fundraiser for Jack Jablonski. Nice move!
Samuel Deduno pitched seven strong innings for his second major league win and Josh Willingham hit his 27th homer of the season, leading the Minnesota Twins to a 12-5 win over the Cleveland Indians on Saturday night.
Minnesota catcher Ryan Doumit is not on the disabled list, and Twins manager Ron Gardenhire says the team’s announcement that he had been put there was incorrect.
The Vikings second first round pick, Harrison Smith out of Notre Dame, has quite a connection to his childhood team in Tennessee. Former Viking Tim Irwin was Smith’s childhood coach, and currently coaches Smith’s younger brother.
Daniel Bard is happy with his conversion from a reliever to starter this spring. So is manager Bobby Valentine.
Wei-Yin Chen looked totally at ease in his new surroundings. Chen made a neat exhibition debut, pitching two scoreless innings for the Baltimore Orioles in a 6-0 win Wednesday over the Minnesota Twins.
Scott Baker pitched two hitless innings in his spring debut as the Minnesota Twins beat the Tamps Bay Rays 3-2 on Tuesday.
The Minnesota Twins have had a crowded outfield for several seasons. That’s not the case this year, with Ben Revere, Denard Span and Josh Willingham settled in their spots before spring training.
Bruce Chen pitched eight crisp innings, Alex Gordon homered and the Kansas City Royals beat the Minnesota Twins 4-0 on Tuesday night.
Ben Revere added a brightspot in another Twins loss. Watch this catch!
One promising prospect has been Ben Revere in center field. He has great range in center and can chase down the baseball, and he’s a menace when he’s on the basepaths.
