Tough call. I agree with Evan. Since Canseco didn’t get an error for the head/homer, thus shouldn’t be one other. Give Solak the dinger.
Ha, I don't really know. I mean, if statcast tells you it was hit 450 feet and left the bat at 113 mph, you really going to feel consolation if your guy pretends to jog a few steps? Tip your cap and get him next time.
José Berríos is done after throwing 96 pitches over 5 1/3 innings. The command still doesn't look fully there. He's issued 3 walks in consecutive starts, but still did a decent job of navigating a good amount of traffic to keep the Twins in it, for the most part.
Not sure if this is a new thing or not, but I've seen it a few times from Rosario in LF this year. If the ball is smoked over the fence and everyone knows it's gone, he won't even give the courtesy look/steps. Seems like he barely flinches! #MNTwins
According to defensive runs saved, Marwin González was a fine outfielder and just an OK infielder throughout his Astros career. But he was worth 5 DRS at 3B for the Twins last season, and he's already made some really nice plays around the infield in 2020.
Tomorrow night's matchup is sneaky-good. Only six pitchers in MLB have started two or more games and allowed just one run, and Dobnak-Houser pits two of them. (Dobnak and Lance Lynn are only ones with one run in three starts).
Pitching matchups for Twins @ Brewers: Mon -- Dobnak vs. Houser Tue -- TBA vs. Lindblom Wed -- Maeda vs. Lauer Sounds like a bullpen game on Tuesday, perhaps with an opener, perhaps with Thorpe. Maeda getting an extra day off before his start.
Ha. After hitting everything 400 feet or more for a couple of days, Jorge Soler tops a dribbler toward RF that confuses Miguel Sano and rolls into the outfield for an accidental single. Merrifield scores on sac fly moments later, it's 3-2 Royals.
79 at first pitch. I was so dreading humid mid-90s temps predicted here, I looked up whether it would be hottest Twins game ever in first 16 games of season. Got to be, right? Found odd fact: Twins-Yanks on April 18, 1976 was 96 degrees -- still hottest April day in NY on record.
