  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Set to begin baseball activities

    Correa (right intercostal strain) is scheduled to begin baseball activities next week, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "His symptoms are improving dramatically from where we were," said Twins head trainer Nick Paparesta.

    Correa was placed on the injured list April 13 with the intercostal strain and it was described as mild. There isn't a timetable for his return, but it's a good sign he's making progress. With Correa out, Willi Castro has been the primary shortstop for the Twins.

  • Twins' Justin Topa: Slated to throw live BP

    Topa (knee) will throw live batting practice Tuesday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    If Topa is able to get through BP without any issues, it's possible the Twins send him out on a rehab assignment. He's been on the injured list since the beginning of the season due to left patellar tendinitis, so he would likely require multiple appearances in the minors, but it appears the 33-year-old righty isn't too far away from rejoining the Twins' bullpen.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Resumes baseball activity

    Lewis (quad) has resumed baseball activity and is aiming to begin a running progression next week, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Lewis hit off a tee and stood in during a few bullpen sessions Saturday. Head trainer Nick Paparesta said he is pleased by the progress the 24-year-old infielder has made since straining his right quad on Opening Day, though he noted that Lewis still has a ways to go before the Twins can start thinking about a return.

  • Twins' Daniel Duarte: Out for season

    Duarte will undergo season-ending elbow surgery on May 8, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Duarte initially landed on the IL due to a triceps strain, but it now appears the primary issue lies in his right elbow. It's unclear whether or not the 27-year-old's procedure will be a Tommy John surgery or some other operation, but it will put an early end to his 2024 campaign nonetheless. He allowed one earned run and struck out three batters through four innings across two appearances.

  • Twins' Carlos Santana: Not starting Saturday

    Santana isn't in the Twins' lineup for Saturday's game against the Tigers, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Santana has now sat out three of Minnesota's last four games after slashing .125/.210/.143 across his first 15 games. His absence Saturday will move Alex Kirilloff to first base while Austin Martin, Byron Buxton and Trevor Larnach start across the outfield.

  • Twins' Trevor Larnach: Knocks first homer

    Larnach went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Friday's loss to Detroit.

    In his third game back from the injured list, Larnach hammered a two-run shot in the first inning. It was his first home run and first multi-hit game of the 2024 season. In 58 MLB games last season, Larnach slashed .213/.311/.415 with 18 extra-base hits and 40 RBI.

  • Twins' Joe Ryan: Stumbles against Tigers

    Ryan allowed four runs on seven hits and a walk over 5.1 innings in a no-decision Friday. He struck out six during the loss to Detroit.

    Ryan coughed up three runs in the first three innings Friday as he produced his worst start of the year. The 27-year-old has given up 10 runs (eight earned) over his last three appearances, driving his ERA up to 3.57 through 22.2 frames. He forced 12 whiffs on 93 pitches, all coming on the fastball and sweeper. Still searching for his first win, Ryan is lined up for a home matchup with the White Sox next week.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Throws BP session Friday

    Duran (oblique) threw a 21-pitch bullpen session Friday and felt no discomfort, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Duran was supposed to throw 20 pitches Friday, but manager Rocco Baldelli noted that the right-hander "wanted an extra [pitch], so that tells you he's feeling good." It's another positive step for Duran, and he appears close to starting a rehab assignment. He began the season on the 15-day IL due to a right oblique strain he sustained in spring training.

  • Twins' Josh Staumont: Activated, optioned to Triple-A

    The Twins reinstated Staumont (calf) from the 15-day injured list Friday and optioned him to Triple-A St. Paul, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    A left calf strain has kept Staumont on the sideline since Opening Day. He made three rehab appearances at St. Paul and will remain with the Saints after allowing three runs across 3.2 innings, though he could return to the majors if the Twins find themselves in need of a fresh bullpen arm later in the season.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Not in Friday's lineup

    Martin is out of the lineup for Friday's game against the Tigers.

    Martin has a modest five-game hit streak going but will head to the bench for Friday's contest. Trevor Larnach will take over in left field and bat cleanup in the series opener versus Detroit.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: RBI in loss

    Farmer went 1-for-3 with an RBI in a 4-2 loss to the Orioles on Wednesday.

    Farmer has played in six games since Carlos Correa injured his oblique, bouncing between third base and shortstop over the past week. While the Twins have said Correa's injury is relatively minor, his return date remains unclear, which should open up opportunities for Farmer to get more at-bats. A lifetime .252 hitter, there's bound to be a bit of positive regression to the mean with Farmer batting .097 across 38 at-bats this season.

  • Twins' Tanner Hall: Out with glute injury

    Hall was placed on the 7-day injured list at Low-A Fort Myers with a strained left glute muscle, TwinsDaily.com reports.

    Taken with the 114th overall pick in the 2023 First-Year Player Draft, Hall threw just 2.2 innings in his professional debut before being shut down with the injury.

  • Twins' David Festa: Hot start at Triple-A

    Festa has a 1.46 ERA and 11.2 K/9 through four games (12.1 innings) at Triple-A St. Paul.

    Festa threw four scoreless innings in his last start Wednesday. Festa is perhaps Minnesota's top pitching prospect, and his early success is notable with the last two spots in the big-league rotation struggling (Louie Varland and Chris Paddack). However, Festa has an ugly 8.2 BB/9 and hasn't gone more than four innings in any start. As a result, he may not be seen as an option this early in the season even if Varland and Paddack continue to labor.

  • Twins' Pablo Lopez: Allows one run in no-decision

    Lopez didn't factor in the decision Wednesday against the Orioles after he gave up one run on two hits and no walks over six innings. He struck out seven.

    The right-hander allowed nine runs (eight earned) while losing his past two outings but rebounded with a quality start Wednesday, with the only blemish against him being a solo homer by Gunnar Henderson. Lopez now has a 3.97 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 23:4 K:BB over 22.2 innings through four starts this season. He lines up for a favorable home matchup against the White Sox next week.

  • Twins' Max Kepler: Starting rehab assignment Thursday

    Kepler (knee) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Kepler was cleared to run the bases this week and came out of it well, paving the way for his return to game action. He's missed the last week-and-a-half of action with a right knee contusion. Kepler shouldn't need too many rehab at-bats before being activated.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Back in lineup Wednesday

    Martin will start in center field and bat seventh in Wednesday's game against the Orioles.

    Martin saw his streak of eight consecutive starts come to an end in Tuesday's 11-3 loss to the Orioles, but he'll be back in the lineup for the series finale in Baltimore and will be flanked in the outfield by Trevor Larnach and Alex Kirilloff while Byron Buxton serves as the team's designated hitter. Buxton should continue to start in center field more often than not, but Martin could continue to hold an edge in playing time in left field over Larnach, who was called up from Triple-A St. Paul earlier this week. Martin will take a four-game hitting streak into Wednesday's contest.
