  1. I watch most of their games. Lots of of other players have taken a while to get adjusted to the speed of the majors. He just looks more comfortable. Even after he has just struck out 2 times in a row. Byron Buxton went 2-for-4 with grand slam and season-high five RBI in the Twins' blowout win over the Mariners on Saturday. Buxton blew this one wide open, extending the Twins' lead to 5-0, with a grand slam to left field off Mariners' starter Wade LeBlanc in the second inning. He also tacked on a run-scoring single in the fourth. It's still early, but the 25-year-old outfielder is showing glimpses of the immense five-category impact potential fantasy owners have always envisioned. He's hitting .281/.338/.525 with 24 runs scored, four homers, 25 RBI and eight steals in 151 plate appearances.
  2. Since you posted this, Bryon has 22 AB 9 Hits 3 2b's 2 Hr 7rbi and 2BB with a .270 Ave. He has struck out 5 times. But he does not look lost at the plate like he has in other years. I think he will continue to improve as the year goes on. His early struggles in the Majors are remind me of how Torii Hunter's career started with the Twins.
  3. J. Polanco 4-4. HR, 2B and two singles, 1 run and 2RBI.
  4. McKinney home run stops a streak of 24 innings of no run allowed by the Twins pitchers vs. Tor. K. Gibson has 10k's, 1 walk and 1 hit given up through 5. There were two innings where Gibson struck out the side.
  5. J. Polanco with a 2 run homer. Twins 3-0.
  6. He should be 6-0 if the bullpen had not blown one of his early starts. He left the game with 3-1 lead after pitching 6 innings with 5 strikeouts. Mejia came in and game up 4 runs in the 8th to give Toronto a 5-3 win.
  7. J. Polonco 1 hit away from the cycle again. I think he is missing a triple.
  8. Pitching coach worked on his mechanics to use his lower body. Also worked with Johan Santana in spring training.
  9. A lot of those walks were when he was coming out of the pen early in the year. The Twins had a lot of days off and didn't need 5 starters. So he was doing long relief for a couple weeks. When he became a starter, he has been borderline dominant in his last few starts. 1 hit in 5 innings so far with 5k's.
  10. Another double for Buxton with a run driven in.
  11. Johan worked with Perez in Spring Training.
  12. He's hit a lot of hard balls. Reddick made a ridiculous catch on him yesterday. Another ball was hit hard right at a fielder.
  13. He keeps doing just enough to keep the interest alive. He might be a better in real life player than a fantasy one. RBI triple today, run scored and some sterling plays in the outfield. Had a hit, stolen base and a run scored Wed night. He is a lot of fun to watch when he is on base.
  14. Pretty hard to pitch better than M. Perez has tonight against the Astros. 4 hits for the Astros. 7 Strikeouts for Perez. 8 shutout innings. Hildenberger comes in for the 9th in a 6-0 game.
