Latest Updates

 

Crede won't report, might retire


(2/17/2011) The Denver Post reports that Rockies 3B Joe Crede, who signed a minor league deal in January, has decided not to report to camp. Crede, who has dealt with back problems all of his career, might retire.

Rockies to give Crede a look


(1/19/2011) The Rockies agreed to a minor-league deal with 3B Joe Crede on Wednesday. Crede didn't play in 2010. He hit .225 with 15 homers for the Twins in 2009.

ChiSox not interested in Crede


(6/7/2010) The Sports Xchange reports 3B Joe Crede has been out of baseball since back problems again hampered him in the 2009 season with the Twins. GM Ken Williams was asked recently if the former Sox third baseman would ever get a call, especially with Mark Teahen on the shelf for at least six weeks with a fractured right middle finger. His reply came without hesitation -- a big "no."

Crede not wanted by Twins


(2/28/2010) Joe Crede remains an unsigned free agent and Twins GM Billy Smith seems happy not to bring him back. Crede played 3B for the Twins last season but Smith won't call Crede an option to bring back. "We've got a few guys over at third base and a few guys battling for utility positions," he said. "We like the guys we've got."

Five Twins file for free agency


(11/18/2009) The following Twins have filed for free agency: Orlando Cabrera, SS; Joe Crede, 3B; Ron Mahay, LHP; Carl Pavano, RHP; Mike Redmond, C.

Crede needs another back surgery


(4:48 pm ET) Twins 3B Joe Crede plans to have another surgery on his injured back. Crede, out for the season, said the procedure by Dr. Andrew Dossett, a Dallas orthopedist, will remove fluid from a herniated disk that is impeding on a nerve. Crede expects to have the operation Friday. The date will be finalized Monday. "It's something I have to do if I want to get back out there," Crede said before Sunday's game against Detroit. Recovery time is about two months.

Crede likely done for season


(9/14/2009) Joe Crede is likely done playing for the year. Crede came off the disabled list last week, but the third baseman only felt well enough to start one game: He went 0 for 4 with four strikeouts on Sunday. Manager Ron Gardenhire hadn't received official word from the team's medical staff, but the manager said Crede probably wouldn't be able to play anymore this season because of a back problem that flared up this summer. "He tried. It's just not going to work for him," Gardenhire said.

Crede to be limited down the stretch


(9/14/2009) The Sports Xchange notes that Joe Crede returned to the lineup for the first time since Aug. 22 on Sunday, batting sixth as Minnesota's DH. The third baseman is still not ready to play in the field, but can DH and pinch hit for now.

Crede comes off DL, not in lineup


(9/8/2009) The Twins activated 3B Joe Crede from the lineup Tuesday, but he was not in the lineup that night in Toronto. Out since Aug. 21 due to a sore lower back, he's batting .229 with 15 homers and 48 RBI.

Crede to get live look at pitching


(9/7/2009) Minnesota 3B Joe Crede (lower back strain) fielded grounders and took part in batting practice Monday and will get a look at live pitching during Francisco Liriano's simulated game Tuesday.

Twins place Crede on disabled list


(8/29/2009) The Twins placed 3B Joe Crede on the 15-day DL on Friday. Crede had missed the last six games because of the sore back. He received a pain-killing shot earlier this week and will get another one before coming back, manager Ron Gardenhire said.

No word yet on Crede's back


(8/26/2009) The Twins were still waiting before the game against the Orioles Wednesday for word from doctors regarding 3B Joe Crede's back problem, which flared up this week and has kept him out for the past five days. He will head into the team's next series against the Rangers as questionable but the disabled list is definitely a possibility.

Crede might have to go on the DL


(8/26/2009) Twins 3B Joe Crede's lingering back problems are flaring up at the worst possible time. Crede missed Tuesday night's game against Baltimore with a sore back that has now kept him out four straight games as the Twins try to chase down Detroit and Chicago in the AL Central. He had an MRI exam Tuesday, and manager Ron Gardenhire said it revealed "post-surgical changes." Team pyhsicians need to consult with the doctor who performed Crede's most recent back surgery in 2008 before a treatment plan is formed, so it is still not clear whether Crede will be put on the disabled list. "It's locked up right now. His back doesn't feel very good," Gardenhire said. "I'll let the doctors tell me where we go."

Crede waiting on MRI results


(8/25/2009) Twins third baseman Joe Crede is out of the lineup for Minnesota's game Tuesday night against Baltimore because of a lingering back injury. Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Crede was scheduled to have an MRI exam Tuesday to assess the extent of the injury. Gardenhire said he would wait to hear from doctors before making a decision on his status going forward. Injuries are nothing new for Crede, who has missed four straight games. He signed with the Twins in February after missing significant time the past two seasons after major back surgeries.

Crede misses Monday's contest


(8/24/2009) Minnesota 3B Joe Crede did not get into the game on Monday against the Orioles as he remains day to day with a back problem.

Crede an injury risk yet again


(8/24/2009) Twins 3B Joe Crede is considered day to day after being scratched from the lineup against Kansas City Sunday due to a sore back.

Crede scratched on Sunday


(8/23/2009) Minnesota Twins third baseman Joe Crede has been scratched from the lineup against Kansas City due to a sore back. Crede was initially in the lineup Sunday, but was replaced by Brendan Harris about 45 minutes before the first pitch. He missed Saturday's game after slightly spraining his ankle while running the bases against the Royals the night before, but manager Ron Gardenhire said he probably could have played.

Crede on RBI streak for Twins


(8/19/2009) Minnesota 3B Joe Crede went 2 for 4 on Wednesday in a win over the Rangers. Crede doubled and drove in a run. He also scored a run and is batting .234 on the year.

Crede returns with great performance


(8/12/2009) Joe Crede hit a three-run homer in his return to the lineup, Francisco Liriano had his best start in two months and the Minnesota Twins beat the Kansas City Royals 7-1 on Wednesday night. Crede, who was questionable for the game with a shoulder issue and had not played since Aug. 6, needed two cortisone shots in the joint before the game. He showed no ill effects, hitting his 15th home run in the first inning and finishing with his first three-hit game of the season and the three RBI. Crede is batting .239 for the year.

Crede likely to return Wed.
