    Twins: Lewis Thorpe, LHP (No. 11) -- 6 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 7 K (Triple-A Rochester) Jose Miranda, 2B/3B (No. 20) -- 3-for-4, 3 R, HR, 2 RBI (Class A Advanced Fort Myers)
    Thorpe is coming off his second taste of the Major Leagues, and he's fared pretty well, overall, with a 3.18 ERA over 11 1/3 innings with the Twins this season. Back in Triple-A, he's been improving as the season has gone on, which continued on Wednesday with six innings of one-hit ball where he struck out seven. He's now struck out 109 batters over 90 1/3 innings in Triple-A. Down in Class A Advanced, Miranda put together a big day of his own with three hits, three runs and a homer in the second half of the doubleheader. Now an even 100 games into his 2019 season with Fort Myers, Miranda is hitting .247 with a .654 OPS. Twins prospects stats »

The 20-year-old has erased a rough first half (.218/.293/.313) with an outstanding .351/.417/.530 second-half showing.

    Twins: Alex Kirilloff, OF/1B (No. 2, No. 16) -- 3-for-5, HR, 2 RBI (Double-A Pensacola)
    Kirilloff has now gone deep twice over the past four games and 10 times this season. The 2016 first rounder missed the entire 2017 season as he recovered from Tommy John, but broke out in a big way last year. Kirilloff hit .348 with 20 homers in his full-season debut and has continued to produce this season, hitting .273 over 78 games in his first experience at the Double-A level. Twins prospects stats »

    Alcala and Graterol will work out of the Red Wings' bullpen. Both need to be added to the 40-man roster this off-season or the team risks losing them to the Rule V draft.

    Saturday, August 17: Vallimont lights-out, Kirilloff rakes
    After carrying a no-hit bid into the eighth inning of his last start, Chris Vallimont was dominant once again Saturday for Class A Advanced Fort Myers. The Twins’ No. 29 prospect threw 61 of his 85 pitches for strikes as he cruised through seven scoreless innings. Vallimont, who yielded his first hit in the fifth, gave up just three hits in the outing and finished with nine strikeouts. The Twins acquired the 22-year-old via a trade with the Marlins in late July.

    Alex Kirilloff showed why teams coveted his bat in the 2016 Draft. The Twins’ No. 2 prospect hit his ninth homer of the year as part of a 3-for-4, three-RBI performance for Double-A Pensacola. Kirilloff hit .348 over two levels last season and is batting .276 through 81 games in 2019, hit first season at the Double-A level. Saturday's prospect stats »

    Friday, Aug. 16: Javier has a big day at the plate; Canterino spins scoreless start
    Twins No. 7 prospect Wander Javier hit a pair of doubles and matched his career-high mark with four hits in Class A Cedar Rapids’ win against Wisconsin. It was the 20-year-old shortstop’s second four-hit performance this season, though, overall, he’s batted just .178/.285/.328 in 65 games. Javier’s big day at the plate supported a scoreless performance on the mound by 21-year-old right-hander Matt Canterino (No. 13), the Twins’ second-round pick in the 2019 Draft. Canterino, a Rice product, allowed one hit and established a pair of career highs by striking out five in five innings. Friday's prospect stats »

The 20-year-old shortstop has hit safely in 13 of 16 games in the Southern League en route to a .269 average. Lewis, the 2017 Draft’s No. 1 overall pick, had a sluggish first half in the Florida State League but began to right the ship in June and batted .260 (.779) OPS with eight homers over his final 32 contests to earn a promotion to Double-A.

    Monday, Aug. 19: Jax posts best start for Rochester
    The Twins’ No. 22 prospect has only made a trio of starts since his promotion to Triple-A Rochester, but Monday’s outing was still the best that Griffin Jax has thrown at the Minors’ highest level. The 24-year-old threw 54 of his 85 pitches for strikes as he struck out seven across six innings of one-run ball. Prior to his promotion the Air Force product was pitching for Double-A Pensacola, where he went 4-3 with a 2.69 ERA and 72 strikeouts over 100 1/3 innings (18 starts). Monday's prospect stats »

    Tuesday, Aug. 20: Alcala earns first Triple-A win
    Jorge Alcala earned the win on Tuesday in his Triple-A debut for Rochester after he entered in the seventh inning and pitched two innings of scoreless relief with just one walk allowed and two strikeouts. This kept the Red Wings within striking distance long enough to break through in the bottom of the eighth with four runs to grab the 4-1 win. Prior to his promotion, Alcala posted a 5.87 ERA over 102 2/3 innings for Double-A Pensacola, which spanned 16 starts and 10 relief appearances. Minnesota’s No. 23 prospect boasts a 70-grade fastball that sits consistently in the high-90s, which could really play up down the stretch as he continues to be used out of the bullpen.

    Wednesday, Aug. 21: Trio of top prospects rake in Double-A
    Twins prospects Alex Kirilloff (No. 2), Royce Lewis (No. 1) and Trevor Larnach (No. 5) respectively occupied the top three spots in Double-A Pensacola’s order on Wednesday and combined for seven hits and four RBIs while reaching base nine times. Both Kirilloff and Lewis went 2-for-4 with a walk, with the former also scoring a pair of runs from the leadoff spot, while Larnach paced the Wahoos’ offense with three hits and three RBIs. Kirilloff, Lewis and Larnach were the Twins’ first-round Draft picks in three straight years (2016-18). Wednesday's prospect stats »

    Thursday, Aug. 22: Kirilloff stays hot for Pensacola
    Alex Kirilloff, the Twins’ No. 2 prospect (No. 16 in MLB) has been on fire lately for Double-A Pensacola and continued that trend with a 2-for-3 performance.The 21-year-old, a first-round pick from the 2016 Draft, not only has hits in six straight games, but four of those performances are multihit efforts. In fact, Kirilloff has been hot all month and is hitting .325 through 19 games, bringing his season average to .284. Kirilloff didn’t play in 2017 as he was recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he raked in 2018 (.348 over 130 games) and has shown this year that that wasn’t a fluke. Thursday's prospect stats »

    1-0, 0.00 ERA, 1 G, 8 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 11 SO, 0.38 WHIP

    Duran logged a 7.13 ERA in his first five Double-A starts before recording the longest outing of his career, striking out 11 and permitting just four baserunners in eight scoreless innings on Friday. He's 5-12 with a 3.85 ERA and 130 whiffs in 110 innings between Class A Advanced and Double-A.

    Monday, Aug. 26: Javier racking up hits for Cedar Rapids
    Make it three multihit performances in four games for Wander Javier after the Twins’ No. 7 prospect went 2-for-3 with a double, two RBIs and two walks for Class A Cedar Rapids on Monday. Javier’s lack of production this season -- .181/.285/.319 in 74 games -- has been disappointing, though it’s important to remember that the 20-year-old lost all of 2018 following surgery to repair a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder. Prior to the injury, Javier was one of the best hitters in the 2017 Appalachian League and slashed .299/.383/.471 over 41 games. Monday's prospect stats »

    Sunday, Aug. 25: Jax fans seven in quality start
    Griffin Jax’s defense didn’t do him any favors as two of the three runs he gave up were unearned. Still, the Twins’ No. 22 prospect struck out seven over six innings in his second straight quality start. The 24-year-old, a third-round pick from the 2016 Draft, threw 60 of his 89 pitches for strikes for Double-A Pensacola and lowered his ERA to 2.62 through 19 starts. Jax, pitching at the Double-A level for the first time, has been impressive this season, but he also missed roughly three weeks on the injured list, which may have slightly delayed his development. Sunday's prospect stats »

    Saturday, Aug. 24: Vallimont fans nine for Fort Myers
    Strikeouts have been commonplace for Chris Vallimont lately as he’s now fanned nine in back-to-back starts for Class A Advanced Fort Myers. The Twins’ No. 29 prospect has 150 strikeouts over 127 2/3 innings after spinning 5 2/3 innings of one-run ball Saturday. Vallimont threw 60 of his 88 pitches for strikes and has a 3.55 ERA in four starts since being acquired from the Marlins prior to the Trade Deadline. Saturday's prospect stats »

    Friday, Aug. 23: Duran flirts with no-hitter
    Twins No. 9 prospect Jhoan Duran retired 10 of the first 11 batters he faced and carried a no-hit bid into the seventh inning. The right-hander threw 58 of his 80 pitches for strikes and gave up just one hit over eight scoreless innings. Duran also recorded 11 strikeouts, his third double-digit strikeout performance of the year. The outing was a nice bounceback outing for Duran, who had yielded 19 runs over 19 innings in his previous four starts. Friday's prospect stats »

    We saw the Kernels play last night and it was a great game with the Kernels winning 2-1 on an unearned run in the bootom of the 9th. The Kernels' pitching was pretty sharp. Andrew Cabezas started the game and went 5.2 innings. He allowed 5 hits, 3 walks and struck out 3, but was always around the strike zone -- 97 pitches, 61 strikes. JT Perez pitched 1.1 innings and did not allow a baserunner, nor did he strike anyone out. Nate Hadley looks to be a very hard-throwing bullpen arm, possibly a future closer. His fastball topped out around 94 on the stadium gun (notoriously slow -- it looked like it was closer to 97). He allowed the run on 2 hits, a walk and 5 Ks in 2 innings. The Kernels have a little guy that played SS for them last night that may never make the bigs, but he is fun to watch. His name is Daniel Ozoria and he just turned 19. He is listed at 5'9", 140, but looks to be closer to 5'4" 130. His main asset is his speed. He scored both runs for the Kernels. He created the winning run by bunting a ball that the pitcher fielded and threw away, allowing him to get to 2nd. He scored on a single by Spencer Steer. The official scorer did not give Ozoria a hit on the bunt, but I would have. He also stole his 15th base last night to set up the first run.
    The River Bandits (Houston Astros chain), have some great arms in the outfield and a catcher named Oscar Campos that is pretty good.

    Monday, Sept. 2: Javier hits 11th home run
    Wander Javier closed out the regular season on a high note Monday, going 1-for-5 with a two-run home run, his 11th of the season. The numbers weren’t there in 2019 for Javier, who signed back in 2015 for a $4 million bonus, but it’s encouraging to see the Twins’ No. 7 prospect get a full season in after missing all of 2018 with a torn labrum in his non-throwing shoulder. Javier appeared in 80 games with Class A Cedar Rapids this season and finished with a .177 average and .601 OPS. The Kernels are set to open the playoffs against Quad Cities on Wednesday, so Javier will have a few more opportunities to build momentum entering the offseason for what will be a crucial 2020 season.

    Sunday, Sept. 1: Larnach keeps mashing for Blue Wahoos
    Trevor Larnach’s bat continues to heat up for Double-A Pensacola after he went 2-for-4 with a double in the Blue Wahoos’ loss to Montgomery. The Twins' No. 5 prospect has raised his average by 60 points since the start of August and has tallied multiple hits in three of his last four ballgames. Larnach’s career slash line as a professional now stands at .307/.382/.468. Sunday's prospect stats »

    Saturday, Aug. 31: Wallner impressing since promotion
    No. 15 prospect Matt Wallner recorded his second multihit game since his promotion from Rookie-level Elizabethton to Class A Cedar Rapids on Aug. 21. Wallner, the No. 39 overall pick in this year’s Draft, collected a third of his team’s hits, going 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored in the Kernels’ 3-1 win over Beloit. Wallner’s left-handed power is his calling card, and the 21-year-old outfielder has shown plenty of it during his pro debut by hitting eight homers, two triples and 20 doubles in 63 games across two levels. Saturday's prospect stats »

    Friday, Aug. 30: Lewis homers for Blue Wahoos
    Top prospect Royce Lewis hit a first-inning solo shot to put Double-A Pensacola on the board and finished the game 2-for-4, leading the Blue Wahoos’ offense in a 3-2 win over Montgomery in the opener of a doubleheader. The homer was the second at the Double-A level for the 2017 No. 1 overall Draft pick and gives him 12 dingers this season in 124 games between two stops. Overall, the 20-year-old shortstop has racked up 42 extra-base hits and 21 steals while compiling a .239/.290/.377 batting line in his second full season. Friday's prospect stats »

    Thursday, Aug. 29: Larnach homers on big night for Pensacola
    Not only did Trevor Larnach hit his 13th homer of the year, but the Twins’ No. 5 prospect also matched his season high with a trio of hits. Larnach, who has hits in four straight games, went 3-for-5 for Pensacola and is hitting .285 through 39 Double-A games. The 2018 first-round Draft pick has shown an advanced approach at the plate dating back to his days at Oregon State, and that has certainly carried over to the professional ranks, as he’s a career .303 hitter.

    Wednesday, Aug. 28: Balazovic throws five scoreless innings
    Jordan Balazovic, the Twins’ No. 4 prospect, turned in his fifth scoreless start of the year as he fired five strong innings for Class A Advanced Fort Myers. The 20-year-old threw 46 of his 61 pitches for strikes as he struck out nine and navigated his way around two hits and a walk. Balazovic, who has a 2.84 ERA through 15 games (14 starts) with the Miracle, retired the first seven batters he faced and gave up both hits in the fifth, but he also struck out the side in that frame.

He’s batting .253 on the season, with eight homers and 25 doubles in 115 games. Tuesday's prospect stats »
