Video: Teddy Bridgewater Throws Out The First Pitch For The Minnesota Twins

Photo | MLB.com Our beloved Teddy Bridgewater threw out the first pitch for the Minnesota Twins at Target Field on Wednesday their game against the Cleveland Indians. Although it sailed a bit high, I’d say Teddy’s pitch was solid. Now that he’s a professional, there are much more public relation obligations for Bridgewater. Despite being a good sport about it, Teddy hasn...

Until Wednesday afternoon Anthony Swarzak had been used exclusive as a reliever by the Minnesota Twins. When scheduled starter Kyle Gibson came down with a sore back on Tuesday, the Twins needed a spot starter on the fly and turned to Swarzak.

In the end it worked out, with Twins outfielder Josh Willingham lining a home run in the eighth inning Monday night to propel the Twins to a 4-3 victory over Cleveland and snap their three-game losing streak.

Twins Injury Update: Joe Mauer, Ricky Nolasco

The Minnesota Twins entered Monday night's game against the Cleveland Indians in last place in the American League Central with a record of 44-53. The offense has been solid at 11th in the league in runs scored, but the main problem for the Twins has been a pitching staff that is 27th in the league in ERA.

Veteran Willingham helps stop Twins' bleeding with key homer

Bringing Your AAA Game - Trevor May & Robert Refsnyder

First, an update on some guys I have written about previously: Jimmy Nelson got the call (he had one spot start earlier this season) and struggled against the Cardinals.  He was hit with some very bad luck and walked 2 batters in only 4.1 innings.  He did strike out 5 and poor defense behind him gave him two unearned runs to go with 6 earned.  I think this was just a bump in...
