  • Twins' Matt Wallner: Swats second homer

    Rotowire

    Wallner went 2-for-4 with a two-run home run and a double in an 8-6 extra-innings win against the White Sox on Monday.

    Wallner was called up from Triple-A on Sunday and started in left field one day later. He belted a big homer in the seventh inning, clubbing a two-run shot to right field to tie the game 5-5. Wallner demonstrated his power potential last year with 14 home runs in 254 plate appearances with the Twins, and he has two long balls through 39 plate appearances this year but is slashing just .167/.333/.433.

  • Twins' Byron Buxton: Remains hot Monday

    Rotowire

    Buxton went 3-for-5 with two doubles, a run and an RBI in Monday's 8-6 extra-innings win against the White Sox.

    Buxton doubled in a run in the fourth inning and scored an insurance run in the 11th after reaching on a single. He finished with his fourth straight multi-hit game and his eighth such effort over his past 12 contests. During that 12-game stretch, Buxton is batting a sizzling .467 (21-for-45) with five homers, eight doubles, 15 RBI and 15 runs. The impressive span has boosted his season batting average from.238 to .282.

  • Twins' Kody Funderburk: Records first career save

    Rotowire

    Funderburk earned a save against the White Sox on Monday by pitching a perfect 11th inning.

    Primary closer Jhoan Duran was deployed to keep the game tied in the 10th frame, leaving Funderburk the opportunity to close things out after Minnesota scored twice in the top of the 11th. The southpaw was successful in doing so, retiring the side in order on 12 pitches. The save was Funderburk's first as a major-leaguer, but it's unlikely he sees many more opportunities with Duran and Griffin Jax locked in as the team's top high-leverage options.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Completes five frames in return

    Rotowire

    Paddack allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out three batters in a no-decision against the White Sox on Monday.

    Paddack was activated from the injured list ahead of the contest after missing over two weeks due to arm fatigue. The right-hander didn't seem to have any trouble with the issue in his return, tossing 78 pitches (54 for strikes) and allowing just five baserunners. Paddack did fade a bit near the end of the outing, though, as three of those baserunners reached in his final frame of work. Assuming he came out of the start fine, Paddack is in line to make his next start in San Francisco this weekend.

  • Twins' Josh Staumont: Extends scoreless streak

    Rotowire

    Staumont allowed an unearned run on two hits while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning Monday against the White Sox. It was his first run allowed this season (on a throwing error), but he hasn't allowed an earned run in 19.2 innings this season.

    Staumont has had an impressive comeback after having thoracic outlet syndrome surgery last July. He's had increased velocity as the season has progressed, reaching a high of 101.1 mph with his fastball on July 7. There are some causes for concern, however, as before Monday he hasn't had a great strikeout rate (20.3%), has a worrisome walk rate (11.6%) and an unsustainable 1.128 BABIP. Still, he's become a dependable option in middle relief for the Twins.

  • Twins' Carlos Santana: Receiving breather Monday

    Rotowire

    Santana is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the White Sox.

    Jose Miranda will pick up the start at first base while Santana rests for the series opener in Chicago. Santana had started all three games of the Twins' weekend series with the Astros, going 3-for-11 with a double, a walk, a run and an RBI.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Good to go Monday

    Rotowire

    Correa (finger) will start at shortstop and bat second in Monday's game against the White Sox.

    Correa was lifted in the first inning of Sunday's 3-2 win over the Astros after he was hit on his right hand by a pitch in his lone at-bat of the day. Fortunately, X-rays cleared Correa of any structural damage, with the Twins labeling his injury as a finger contusion. The injury apparently isn't inhibiting Correa in batting practice Monday, so he'll be ready to go as the Twins kick off a six-game week to close out their pre-All-Star-break schedule.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Activated ahead of Monday's start

    Rotowire

    The Twins activated Paddack (arm) from the 15-day injured list Monday.

    Paddack will rejoin the Twins rotation and start Monday versus the White Sox after missing the past two weeks with right arm fatigue. He didn't make a rehab start prior to being activated, so it's possible Paddack will be a little limited from a pitch count perspective Monday. Reliever Josh Winder was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul in a corresponding move.

  • Twins' Brock Stewart: Slated for rehab assignment

    Rotowire

    Stewart (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday, Darren Wolfson of Channel 5 Saint Paul reports.

    Stewart has been on the shelf since early May with right shoulder tendinitis but is ready to test himself in a game setting after getting through several throwing sessions without any hiccups. With a 0.66 ERA and 34.8 percent strikeout rate over 41 career innings with the Twins, Stewart will be a big boost to the bullpen once he returns, which should happen at the start of the second half.

  • Twins' Kyle Farmer: Exits with sore hand

    Rotowire

    Farmer left Sunday's 3-2 win over Houston in the sixth inning after getting hit by a pitch on his index finger in the fourth inning, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    X-rays administered after the game didn't show any fractures, so Farmer is likely just managing a sore or bruised finger. He went 0-for-2 with a pair of strikeouts Sunday before departing, dropping his batting line to .192/.295/.269 over 149 plate appearances on the season. Farmer has largely served as a short-side platoon player in the Twins infield this season, seeing most of his starts against left-handed pitching.

  • Twins' Christian Vazquez: Leads club to comeback win

    Rotowire

    Vazquez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two additional RBI in Sunday's 3-2 win over the Astros.

    The Astros established a 2-0 lead in the second inning, but Vazquez got one of those runs back with an RBI single. He added another RBI on a fielder's choice in the fourth before providing a walkoff homer in the ninth to complete the comeback. The catcher has multiple hits in each of his last three games, including two homers in that span. He's slashing .204/.227/.311 with four homers, 16 RBI, 13 runs scored and two stolen bases over 180 plate appearances this season. Vazquez continues to alternate starts at catcher with Ryan Jeffers, who has offered moderately more offense and power this season.

  • Twins' Jhoan Duran: Earns fourth win

    Rotowire

    Duran (4-3) earned the win Sunday over the Astros, allowing a hit and a walk while striking out one over a scoreless inning.

    Duran was tasked with keeping the game tied at 2-2 in the ninth inning, and he got the job done. He then earned the win when Christian Vazquez walked it off for the Twins with a solo home run in the bottom of the frame. Duran has been dialed in with 11 scoreless outings over his last 12 appearances, allowing just two runs with a 10:3 K:BB in that span. For the year, the closer has a 3.25 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 25:9 K:BB through 27.2 innings while converting 13 of 14 save chances and adding one hold.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Turns in quality start

    Rotowire

    Woods Richardson allowed two runs on three hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings in a no-decision versus the Astros on Sunday.

    Woods Richardson gave up both runs in the second inning, but the Twins were able to respond and ultimately won 3-2. He's been just fine with 18 runs allowed over 37.2 innings across his last seven starts, three of which registered as quality starts. He's now at a 3.48 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 64:23 K:BB through 77.2 innings over 15 starts this season. The 23-year-old is projected to make his next start in San Francisco.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Expects to play Monday

    Rotowire

    Correa (finger) expects to be in the lineup Monday versus the White Sox, Audra Martin of Bally Sports North reports.

    Correa exited Sunday's 3-2 win over Houston with a bruised right finger in the first inning, but he explained to Martin after the game that he doesn't expect the injury to sideline him moving forward. The shortstop will look to bring his expectation to fruition in Monday's series opener on the road against the White Sox.

  • Twins' Josh Winder: Optioned to Triple-A

    Rotowire

    Winder was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul after Sunday's 3-2 win over the Astros, Audra Martin of Bally Sports North reports.

    Winder was called up Friday and appeared in the team's 13-12 loss to Houston, pitching two innings, allowing four runs (three earned) on five hits while striking out two batters. The right-hander will now have to wait for his next chance to join the major-league roster while the vacancy he leaves behind with the big-league club is expected to be filled by Chris Paddack (arm).

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Dealing with bruised finger

    Rotowire

    Correa had X-rays come back negative and was diagnosed with a right finger contusion after exiting Sunday's game against the Astros, Audra Martin of Bally Sports North reports.

    Correa was struck by 96-mph pitch during the opening frame of Sunday's contest but appears to have avoided a serious injury. The 29-year-old should be considered day-to-day heading into Monday's series opener against the White Sox.
