  • Twins' Kody Funderburk: Shelved with oblique strain

    The Twins placed Funderburk on the 15-day injured list Sunday with a left oblique strain.

    After being called up from Triple-A St. Paul on June 21, Funderburk made six appearances out of the Minnesota bullpen and gave up seven earned runs over 9.1 innings before sustaining the oblique injury. The Twins promoted right-hander Ronny Henriquez from Triple-A to replace Funderburk in the bullpen.

  • Twins' Ronny Henriquez: Back with big club

    The Twins recalled Henriquez from Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday.

    He'll join Minnesota as a replacement in the bullpen for left-hander Kody Funderburk (oblique), who was placed on the 15-day injured list in a corresponding move. Henriquez had previously made two appearances for the big club this season, striking out three over three scoreless innings.

  • Twins' Manuel Margot: Sitting in second straight game

    Margot is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

    Margot had picked up starts in four of the Twins' final five games before the All-Star break, but he finds himself on the bench for a second straight contest to begin the second half. Even with injuries beginning to pile up for the Twins with all of Carlos Correa (heel), Jose Miranda (back), Kyle Farmer (shoulder) and Royce Lewis (adductor) landing on the injured list within the past three weeks, Margot is still likely to see the majority of his playing time against left-handed pitching.

  • Twins' Matt Wallner: Hitting bench Sunday

    Wallner is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

    Austin Martin will enter the lineup in left field in place of Wallner, who had picked up starts in the corner outfield or at designated hitter in each of Minnesota's first eight games following his July 7 call-up from Triple-A St. Paul. During that eight-game stretch, Wallner hit .333 and flashed power (two home runs, two doubles), but it came with a 42.9 percent strikeout rate. Though the high amount of swing and miss in Wallner's game remains a concern, he should have a relatively clear path to playing time while the Twins contend with a slew of injuries to position players.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Resting Sunday

    Jeffers is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Brewers.

    Dating back to before the All-Star break, Jeffers had started in each of the Twins' last five contests at either catcher or designated hitter, but he'll take a seat Sunday as Minnesota and Milwaukee close their series with a day game. Christian Vazquez will get a turn behind the dish in the finale.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Needs more time on IL

    Miranda (back) has improved but he will need several more days before he returns from the injured list, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Miranda could have returned from the IL on Sunday, but it may be until later in the week before he returns. He may need a short rehab stint at Triple-A St. Paul, according to the report.

  • Twins' Brock Stewart: Could return next week

    Stewart (shoulder) has given up one run in three innings at Triple-A St. Paul with five strikeouts and two walks during a rehab assignment. He'll make at least one more appearance before being activated from the injured list next week, The Athletic reports.

    Stewart has been on the shelf with shoulder tendinitis since early May. 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.

  • Twins' Royce Lewis: Could begin rehab assignment soon

    Lewis (adductor) is expected to head out on a brief minor-league rehab assignment next week, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Lewis started running and taking batting practice during the All-Star break, and he may need only a few games in the minors before he's activated from the 10-day injured list. He's on the IL for the second time this season, after he had previously missed nearly 10 weeks due to a strained right quadricep, which he suffered Opening Day.

  • Twins' Carlos Santana: Launches 14th homer

    Santana went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run and a walk in Saturday's 8-4 extra-innings loss to the Brewers.

    Santana hit just .133 over his first nine games in July, but he's gone deep twice over his last three contests while going 3-for-9 in that span. The first baseman is up to a .244/.327/.434 slash line with 14 homers, 43 RBI, 36 runs scored, two stolen bases and 17 doubles through 90 games. Santana's always been fairly disciplined at the plate, but he's getting by on a 9.7 percent walk rate this year, the lowest of his career.

  • Twins' Pablo Lopez: Sharp in no-decision

    Lopez allowed a run on four hits and a walk while striking out seven over seven innings in a no-decision versus the Brewers on Saturday.

    Lopez limited the damage to an RBI single by Jackson Chourio in the third inning, but the Twins didn't get on the board until the eighth. This was Lopez's third quality start in his last five outings. Minnesota's ace has had a few too many duds this year, giving him a 4.86 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 128:24 K:BB through 111 innings over 20 starts. He's projected to make his next start at Detroit.

  • Twins' Byron Buxton: Back in lineup Saturday

    Buxton is starting in center field and batting third Saturday versus the Brewers.

    Buxton was absent from the Twins' lineup for the team's final two games prior to the All-Star break, but he'll be back in action Saturday. A streaky hitter, Buxton has been on a tear since early June, batting .376 with six home runs, 22 RBI, 25 runs scored and three stolen bases over his last 101 at-bats. He'll look to keep up the hot streak as Minnesota officially kicks off the second half of their season against Milwaukee.

  • Twins' Edouard Julien: Joins Twins, starting Saturday

    Julien was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. He'll bat ninth and play second base against the Brewers.

    With Carlos Correa (foot) placed on the injured list, the Twins had a significant need for middle infield depth, and opted to bring Julien up to the big-league roster. The 25-year-old has 194 plate appearances with Minnesota this season, slashing .207/.309/.367 with seven home runs and six stolen bases.

  • Twins' Austin Martin: Activated from 10-day IL

    Martin (oblique) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Saturday.

    Martin will return to the big-league roster after a minimum stay on the IL with a strained right oblique. Prior to getting hurt, the outfielder had seen his playing time dwindle greatly and it's unclear if he has a path to more consistent usage moving forward.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Placed on 15-day IL

    Paddack was placed on the 15-day injured list with a right forearm strain Saturday.

    Paddack last pitched Sunday against the Giants, surrendering two runs (one earned) over five innings, potentially picking up a forearm injury in the process. The right-hander could be set for an extended absence as a result of the injury being to his throwing arm, but only time will tell. It's unclear who will replace Paddack in Minnesota's starting rotation, but in the meantime, Austin Martin (oblique) was activated from the 10-day injured list Saturday, filling in the hole on the major-league roster.

  • Twins' Carlos Correa: Placed on 10-day IL

    Correa (heel) was placed on the 10-day injured list with right plantar fasciitis Saturday, retroactive to July 16.

    Correa missed the Twins' final two games before the All-Star break with a heel injury, but it wasn't considered to be particularly serious at the time. He will now be forced to miss at least the the next 10 games, but plantar fasciitis can be a very tricky situation, so it's unclear if the shortstop will be able to return when first eligible. Correa had been on a tear since the beginning of June, batting .360 with nine home runs, 28 RBI and 29 runs scored over 36 contests, so his absence is a tough pill to swallow for fantasy managers. In a corresponding move, Edouard Julien was called up from Triple-A St. Paul.

  • Twins' Darren Bowen: Comes off IL

    Bowen (elbow) was reinstated from Double-A Cedar Rapids' 7-day injured list and recorded just one out while allowing six earned runs on six hits and one walk in a July 12 loss to Beloit.

    Bowen started for Cedar Rapids in his return from a month-long absence due to a right elbow sprain, but he tossed just 28 pitches before being lifted from the game after being knocked around by the Beloit lineup. Despite Bowen's rough showing in his return, the Twins haven't indicated that he suffered any setbacks with his elbow, so he should be ready to make his next turn through the rotation coming out of the All-Star break. Bowen holds a 6.23 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 43:14 K:BB in 43.1 innings with Cedar Rapids on the season.

  • Twins' Austin Brice: Calls end to playing career

    Brice announced Wednesday via social media that he has retired from professional baseball.

    The 32-year-old's announcement came two days after Triple-A St. Paul placed him on its voluntarily retired list. The right-hander didn't see any big-league action this season between stints in the Phillies and Twins organizations and turned in an ugly 12.00 ERA over 15 innings between the Triple-A and Double-A levels. Brice previously made 144 appearances in the majors from 2016 through 2022, logging a 5.12 ERA while collecting four wins and 16 holds over 168.2 innings across stops with the Marlins, Reds, Red Sox and Pirates.
