Twins prospect J.R. Graham making push for bullpen role
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/24/15) Twins prospect J.R. Graham has worked an efficient spring training to say the least. Graham took over Tuesday after Brian Duensing was hit with a line drive. The bases were loaded with no outs and he managed to get out of the inning unscathed.
Manager Paul Molitor loves what the young player has done so far in camp, reports The Star Tribune.
"I loved that," Molitor said. "That kind of got my blood going the right direction."
Because he was a Rule 5 draft pick, the Twins must either keep him on the roster the entire season or offer him back to the Braves.
"If we think a guy has a ceiling, we'll take care of it, but first he has to make the club," general manager Terry Ryan said. "It's tough to carry a Rule 5 guy that doesn't contribute. We're hoping that J.R. Graham, if he does pitch well enough this spring, he could give us thoughts of carrying him."
Graham has no plans of returning to Atlanta.
"I don't want to go back," he said. "I want to stay on the team, I want to make the team. I looked at this as my opportunity. I’m planning on staying."

|(12/11/14) The Twins selected Braves pitcher J.R. Graham in Thursday's Rule 5 draft.
The 2011 fourth-round pick went 1-5 with a 5.55 ERA in 27 appearances (19 starts) for Double-A Mississippi in 2014. The former top-100 prospect is 19-12 with a 3.37 ERA over four minor-league seasons.
Braves to keep J.R. Graham in starting role
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/2/14) The Braves have no plans to move pitching prospect J.R. Graham into a minor-league relief role, MLB.com reports.
"We like him as a starter," said director of player development/assistant general manager Bruce Manno. "He has started before for us. He had a shoulder issue last summer and rehabbed during the rest of last season and in the offseason. He came to Spring Training healthy and ready to go. Our feeling is we'd like to have him remain as a starter."
Graham made just eight starts last season while dealing with a strained shoulder.
J.R. Graham won't have any limitations in spring training
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/23/14) The Braves said starting pitcher prospect J.R. Graham, who missed the rest of the 2013 season after hurting his shoulder in mid-May, will not have any limitations when spring training begins, according to MLB.com.
Graham, who is considered the Braves' third-best prospect by Baseball America, was 1-3 with a 4.04 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in eight starts for Double-A Mississippi last season before being shut down. The 2011 fourth-round pick was 12-2 with a 2.80 ERA and 1.06 WHIP in 26 starts in 2012 between high Class A and Double-A.
