The Minnesota Twins have placed right-hander Samuel Deduno and outfielder Wilkin Ramirez on the 15-day disabled list. Deduno left his previous start against the Royals early with soreness in his right shoulder. Ramirez fractured his left shin after fouling a ball off his leg in the fifth inning of Thursday’s game against the Royals. The Twins have recalled left-hander Pedro Hernandez from Double-A New Britain and outfielder Darin Mastroianni from Triple-A Rochester to fill the open roster spots.
The Minnesota Twins announced Wednesday they’ve selected the contract of Chris Colabello from AAA Rochester. The Twins made the move after placing infielder Trevor Plouffe in the seven-day disabled list with concussion symptoms.
“Hey kid, you’re going to the show…” That’s the sentence every aspiring baseball player wants to hear.
Darin Mastroianni hopes to run his way onto the Minnesota Twins.
Josh Willingham drove in two runs against his former team, Joe Mauer hit a two-run single and the Twins snapped Oakland’s four-game winning streak and a five-game skid of their own with a 7-2 victory over the Athletics on Monday night.
The Twins let an opportunity pass them by in the fifth inning. They didn’t get a better chance later, either.
Darin Mastroianni and Ryan Doumit each homered and drove in three runs, Samuel Deduno baffled the struggling Detroit Tigers for seven innings and the Minnesota Twins snapped a four-game losing streak with a 9-3 victory Monday night.
Darin Mastroianni got his first major league hit and drove in three runs to help the Minnesota Twins overcome Jose Bautista’s two homers in a 7-6 victory over Toronto on Friday night.
The struggling Minnesota Twins are shaking things up, moving Francisco Liriano to the bullpen and optioning third baseman Danny Valencia to Triple-A Rochester.
