Kurt Suzuki slugs first longball as a DH
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/19/14) Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki moved out from behind the plate Saturday, appearing in his first game as a designated hitter in a 5-4 loss to the Royals.

Suzuki went 2 for 4 in the game and used the extra rest to hit his first home run of the season. He drove in three runs total, adding a two-run single in the fifth to his fourth-inning solo shot.

Suzuki is now hitting .277/.375/.383 in 14 games played, and now ranks second on the team with 12 RBI.

Kurt Suzuki providing some offense for Twins
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/14) Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki is known more for being a strong defensive catcher, but he has delivered some early returns on offense in his first year with Minnesota.

Suzuki is batting .318 (7 for 22) with a .444 on-base percentage and .808 OPS through six games. He has only one double and no home runs, but Suzuki has driven in six runs. He also has more walks (five) than strikeouts (two).

Twins giving Kurt Suzuki tryout as No. 2 hitter
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/31/14) Twins manager Ron Gardenhire chose to bat catcher Kurt Suzuki second in Monday's season opener against the White Sox, despite Suzuki having just a career .309 on-base percentage.

"We settled on Suzuki batting second because he's a great contact guy," Gardenhire said, per MLB.com. "And with [Chris Sale] pitching, you have to put the ball in play."

Gardenhire explained his decision to Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony as he could use Suzuki in hit-and-run situations to help manufacture runs. Antony added, however, Suzuki isn't locked in to batting second all year.

"He takes good at-bats," Antony said. "He can hit and run. (Brian) Dozier is not a prototypical leadoff guy in that he's not a 50-stolen base guy. So there are some things we might do hit-and-run-wise. So we're going to try to manufacture runs. So at least on opening day, Gardy wants to see what [Suzuki] can do in the two-hole."

Twins manager mulling leadoff options
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/11/14) Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Tuesday he might bat Brian Dozier or Kurt Suzuki in the leadoff spot, if center fielders Darin Mastroianni or Aaron Hicks don't settle into the role, per the Pioneer Press.
Kurt Suzuki 'not trying to be' Joe Mauer
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/30/14) Although he was essentially signed to replace Joe Mauer behind the plate, Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki said he won't try to measure up to the former AL MVP.

"I'm not trying to be Joe," Suzuki said, per FOX Sports North. "I feel like I've got a lot to offer still in this game. I still feel on top of my game. Obviously the last couple years haven't gone the way I wanted to, but the way my body feels, I'm in a good spot mentally right now. I'm looking forward to this season."

The Twins didn't sign Suzuki, who is a career .253 hitter, for his bat. He was signed to a one-year, $2.75 million contract this offseason because of his leadership and defensive abilities.

"We talked to Oakland when we were out there and they had nothing but the best things in the world to say about Suzuki as far as a leader, a catcher, calling the ball game, very intelligent, helping everybody out," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "He brings a lot to the table."
