  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Leaves with rib injury

    Garlick left Monday's game against the Tigers with right rib inflammation, Megan Ryan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Garlick took two at-bats Monday before departing the contest. The extent of his injury is not yet known, so it remains to be seen if he will miss any additional time.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Showing advanced skills in Double-A

    Julien is batting .292/.436/.494 with 12 homers, 12 steals and a 66:81 BB:K through 74 games for Double-A Wichita.

    While Julien is still striking out a fair amount, he's balanced that out with a walk rate north of 20 percent, which has helped him put up some of the best OBP numbers in the minors across the last two seasons. Julien has also found his power stroke recently, smashing five homers in his last 10 games -- a stretch in which he's also hit .324 with a 10:7 BB:K. It's also noteworthy that the 23-year-old Canadian has spent almost the entire 2022 season at second base; last year, he made appearances at first, second, third and left field, but it seems the Twins are no longer grooming him as a jack of all trades. Of course, that also means that he's blocked by Jorge Polanco for the time being.

  • Twins' Alex Kirilloff: Remains on bench

    Kirilloff (wrist) isn't starting Monday against the Tigers.

    Kirilloff was removed from Saturday's matchup against San Diego due to right wrist soreness, and he'll be out of the lineup for a second consecutive game. Kyle Garlick will take over in left field and bat fifth.

  • Twins' Byron Buxton: Not in Monday's lineup

    Buxton isn't starting Monday against the Tigers.

    Buxton is resting after he went 5-for-18 with three homers, a double, five runs, three RBI and a stolen base over the last five games. Nick Gordon will take over in center field and bat seventh.

  • Twins' Mark Contreras: Optioned and recalled

    The Twins optioned Contreras to Triple-A St. Paul after Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Padres, then they recalled him ahead of Monday's game against the Tigers.

    Minnesota elected to reverse the transaction it made hours earlier due to the team requiring another depth option in the outfield with Gilberto Celestino (personal) landing on the paternity list Monday. Once Celestino likely rejoins the team Thursday, Contreras will presumably head back to St. Paul at that time.

  • Twins' Gio Urshela: Back from paternity leave

    The Twins reinstated Urshela (personal) from the paternity list ahead of Monday's game against the Tigers, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Urshela spent the maximum three days away from the team while observing the birth of his child. Now that he's back with the Twins, the new father should settle back into a near-everyday role at third base as the team begins a seven-game week.

  • Twins' Gilberto Celestino: Heads to paternity list

    Minnesota placed Celestino on the paternity list Monday, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    The Twins will swap one position player off the paternity list for another, as Gio Urshela (personal) rejoins the club for Monday's series opener with the Tigers while Celestino will now be away from the team for between 1-to-3 days. Once he's reinstated from the list, Celestino could end up seeing steady action in the Minnesota outfield while Max Kepler (toe) and Trevor Larnach (core) are on the shelf and while Alex Kirilloff (wrist) is day-to-day.

  • Twins' Yennier Cano: Sent back to minors

    The Canon="Minnesota Twins" data-type="SPORTS_OBJECT_TEAM" data-league-abbreviation="MLB" data-team-abbreviation="MIN">Twins optioned Cano to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Cano was sent back to the minors to clear a spot on the 26-man active roster for third baseman Gio Urshela (personal), who was reinstated from the paternity list. The 28-year-old right-hander was up with the big club for just over a week and gave up two earned runs over his lone two-inning appearance out of the bullpen.

  • Twins' Jose Godoy: Moved off 40-man roster

    The Twins designated Godoy for assignment Monday, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    He'll forfeit his spot on the 40-man roster to right-hander Aaron Sanchez, whose contract was selected from Triple-A St. Paul in advance of his scheduled start Monday against the Tigers. Godoy made two appearances with the big club earlier this season when the Twins required extra catching depth, but he's otherwise toiled at Triple-A St. Paul throughout the campaign.

  • Twins' Aaron Sanchez: Gets spot start for Minnesota

    The Twins selected Sanchez's contract from Triple-A St. Paul and will have him start Monday's game against the Tigers at Target Field.

    Sanchez may be moved off the roster immediately after the outing, as the team's fifth starter heading into the All-Star break, Devin Smeltzer, isn't eligible to pitch for big club for 15 days after he was optioned to Triple-A on July 17. Smeltzer will be eligible for a call-up the next time the Twins require a fifth starter Saturday against Toronto, so Sanchez may need to dazzle in his Minnesota debut to ensure he receives more than a spot start. Sanchez was roughed up to the tune of an 8.33 ERA and 1.76 WHIP across seven starts in the majors with the Nationals earlier this season, and his numbers at Triple-A in the Twins organization (4.26 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, 9.1 K-BB%) haven't been much better, considering the level of competition.

  • Twins' Matt Canterino: Starts up rehab assignment

    Canterino (elbow) has struck out four while allowing one run on three hits and one walk in 2.2 innings between two appearances since beginning a rehab assignment Monday with the Twins' rookie-level Florida Complex League affiliate.

    Canterino has been shut down at Double-A Wichita since early June with a right elbow strain, but he should be ready to rejoin the affiliate within the next couple of weeks. Prior to being deactivated, the 24-year-old turned in a 1.83 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 50:22 K:BB over 34.1 innings for Wichita.

  • Twins' Dylan Bundy: Done in by sixth inning

    Bundy (6-5) took the loss during Sunday's 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Padres, allowing three runs on four hits with three strikeouts in five-plus innings.

    Bundy made one mistake early that resulted in a Jurickson Profar solo home run and was in line for the win after Minnesota took the lead in the top of the sixth inning. He subsequently allowed consecutive singles before being pulled, with both runners coming around to score to give the 29-year-old the loss. Bundy targeted the strike zone early and often with 56 of 78 pitches going for strikes and nine coming on swings-and-misses in recording his fifth start without issuing a walk. Bundy carries a 5.04 ERA and 1.29 WHIP into his next start, scheduled to come over the weekend against Toronto.

  • Twins' Caleb Thielbar: Makes rehab appearance

    Thielbar (hamstring) struck out a batter over a perfect inning of relief in his rehab appearance Sunday for Triple-A St. Paul.

    Thielbar needed just seven pitches to retire the side in his first appearance since landing on the injured list July 23 with a left hamstring strain. He'll could make one more appearance in the minors but should be ready to return from the IL when first eligible Thursday.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Opportunities picking up

    Garlick will start in left field and bat cleanup in Sunday's game against the Padres.

    He'll take over in left field for the fourth time in five games after going 3-for-10 with a solo home run and two doubles over that stretch. The righty-hitting Garlick should be a mainstay in the lineup versus left-handed pitching moving forward, but his ability to pick up regular at-bats versus righties may hinge on the health of Alex Kirilloff (wrist). The Twins are viewing Kirilloff as day-to-day after he exited Saturday's win with a sore right wrist, an issue that forced him to the injured list for three weeks earlier this season.

  • Twins' Gilberto Celestino: Making third straight start

    Celestino will start in right field and bat eighth in Sunday's game against the Padres.

    Celestino will pick up his third straight start after going 2-for-7 with an RBI over the previous two contests. Though his opportunities should be on the rise while Max Kepler (toe) and Trevor Larnach (core) are on the injured list, Celestino's path to a regular role against right-handed pitching may be blocked unless Alex Kirilloff's wrist issue forces him to the IL, too.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Connects on 13th homer

    Correa went 1-for-5 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 7-4 win over the Padres.

    Correa's one-out big fly in the top of the eighth inning helped the Twins add some cushion to their 2-1 lead before the club ultimately closed the door on the win to end a three-game losing streak. The shortstop is now up to a .270 average to go along with 13 home runs on the season, but modest RBI (36) and run (42) totals to go with zero stolen bases have made Correa merely a solid fantasy option rather than a spectacular one. He'll be back in the lineup for Sunday's series finale, manning shortstop while batting second.

  • Twins' Nick Gordon: Not starting against lefty

    Gordon is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

    Though he will take a seat against San Diego southpaw Sean Manaea, the lefty-hitting Gordon should be able to maintain a near-everyday role against right-handed pitching while Alex Kirilloff (wrist) is day-to-day and with Max Kepler (toe) and Trevor Larnach (core) on the injured list. Gordon doubled in each of his last three games to bring his OPS up to .712 for the season.

  • Twins' Gary Sanchez: Getting Sunday off

    Sanchez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Padres.

    Sanchez will be receiving some much-needed maintenance after he started behind the plate in each of the Twins' last nine games, a streak that dates back to before the All-Star break. Caleb Hamilton will get a rare turn behind the dish Sunday while Sanchez rests.
