Twins P Blaine Boyer (15.00 ERA) says he's fixed his problem
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/17/15) Twins reliever Blaine Boyer is off to a poor start in 2015 (15.00 ERA in four appearances) but said he's identified the issue and has rectified it, per TwinCities.com.|
"It was a timing issue I've been dealing with ever since the season started," Boyer said. "I was taking way too much time to get all my weight to my back leg. Everything was rushing. I had nothing behind the ball."
Boyer hasn't pitched since April 12 when he gave up three runs on four hits to the White Sox without recording an out.

|(3/30/15) The Twins informed pitcher Blaine Boyer that he made the team's Opening Day roster, per MLB.com.
Boyer signed a minor league contract in January that included a non-roster invitation to Twins spring training camp. The team added him to the 40-man roster earlier in the day on Monday.
"It was a load off my shoulders," Boyer said of making the team. "It was a surreal moment for me. I'm just excited and very thankful to Terry Ryan."
Boyer had a 1.69 ERA in seven games this spring.

|(3/30/15) The Twins added pitcher Blaine Boyer to the 40-man roster Monday, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Boyer is set to earn $750,000 after signing a minor-league deal this offseason and can also earn up to $100,000 in bonuses. He has been named as the starting replacement for Kyle Gibson (illness) Monday night against the Red Sox.
General manager Terry Ryan said Monday that Boyer's fastball has sat at 93-to-94 mph this spring, which is up from the 91-to-92 mph the team was expecting.
