Twins looking to Aaron Thompson, Ryan Pressly for long relief


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/3/2015) The Twins are working without a dedicated long reliever. Tim Stauffer is on the 15-day disabled list, and the team decided to send Tommy Milone to Triple-A so he could remain a starter, instead of sending him to the bullpen. 

Manager Paul Molitor said he'd mix and match pitchers in long-relief situations. Aaron Thompson got the first call, going 2 1/3 innings on Saturday. Ryan Pressly is probably next. 

Pressly was promoted from Triple-A on Friday. 

"Pressly is probably one of the longer guys I could use in a game right now, but it could change day to day," Molitor said, per MLB.com

"It's all fine by me," Pressly said. "I just want to pitch and prove to them I've made some tweaks, and I'm not the same reliever that was all over the place in Spring Training. I just have to take the opportunity and run with it."

Through five appearances, Stauffer has a 9.00 ERA.

Stauffer said that his changeup "is still not where I want it to be".

Tim Stauffer no longer in the running for spot in Twins' rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/18/2015) Twins manager Paul Molitor announced Wednesday pitcher Tim Stauffer has bowed out of the competition for the final spot in the rotation and will now focus on a move to the bullpen, per the Pioneer Press.

Molitor said Stauffer is "fine" with the move to the bullpen. Stauffer has made three appearances this spring -- all in relief -- but has not pitched well. He has allowed 12 runs (10 earned) on 16 hits and four walks in six innings. He has a 15.00 ERA. 

“We will make a little adjustment with his routine, and he is going to get into more of a bullpen routine to prepare for something along the lines of that role,” Molitor said. “He was fine with that. Neil will change his schedule on how we’re going to be using him.”


Twins' Tim Stauffer feels 'a little sluggish'


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/17/2015) Twins pitcher Tim Stauffer has struggled with production and velocity this spring, but he said Tuesday he's completely healthy and just feeling "a little sluggish," the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

"I just feel a little sluggish out there," Stauffer said. "Nothing hurts or anything. There’s no pain. Just a little dead-arm funk right now."

Manager Paul Molitor said Sunday that he and pitching coach Neal Allen would meet with the pitcher Tuesday to discuss plans for the final three weeks of camp, which could include Stauffer preparing for a bullpen role. Stauffer indicated that his lack of fastball velocity has caused him to use more offspeed pitches in games.

"Obviously everything is related to the arm speed and velocity," he said. "That’s all going to change when you get going the right way. Obviously it’s much more challenging working with half a deck of cards, so to speak. I’m staying positive and not getting overly concerned with the results. You know when your stuff is good. I know right now it’s not where it was last year and the previous year. I know my arm’s not where it’s going to be. Hopefully here in the next couple weeks I’ll get it ironed out."

Stauffer has surrendered 12 runs (10 earned) in six innings while striking out two and walking four this spring.


Twins GM Terry Ryan not ready to name favorite for final rotation spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/9/2015) Jim Souhan of The Star Tribune wrote in his Sunday column he feels Alex Meyer is the leading candidate for the final spot in the Twins' rotation. He mentioned it to Twins general manager Terry Ryan, who doesn't appear to have anyone atop his list yet as the favorite for the role of fifth starter.

“You’re ahead of yourself,” Ryan said. “There are people who are going to argue with you. There are other people out there who are going to compete for that job and believe they’re ahead of Alex Meyer, because of their track record and experience.

“One of them is Tommy Milone. He’s got a lot more experience than Alex Meyer. He’s got somewhat close to the same stuff. He’s won 13 games in the big leagues. He isn’t going to want to hear that … stuff.

“There are guys competing out there who want to send Alex Meyer back to the minors. Alex better realize he has to earn this thing. Which is a good position for us to be in.

Tim Stauffer is another guy. He had a good year in San Diego about three years ago. He’s no slouch.

Mike Pelfrey is a good man.  I’m hoping things turn for him. He certainly wants to earn his keep. He has a shot at the fifth spot, and if that doesn’t work out, he has a shot at the bullpen.”


Twins' Tim Stauffer open to any role


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(6/3/2014) Padres pitcher Tim Stauffer couldn't make it out of the third inning Monday, giving up two earned runs on four hits and two walks in 2 2/3 innings while striking out four in his team's 10-3 loss to the Pirates.

Stauffer (2-2) got through two scoreless innings before coming unglued in the third, starting by giving up a leadoff home run. After two infield singles and a walk loaded the bases, he gave up his second run on a sacrifice fly and was removed after walking the next batter to re-load the bases. Stauffer, who threw 71 of his team's whopping 249 pitches in the short outing, has only managed to pitch three innings in his last two starts combined to tax the San Diego bullpen.

Stauffer owns a 4.73 ERA and 28:13 K:BB ratio in 26 2/3 innings. He's tentatively scheduled to face the Nationals Sunday, but he could have his start pushed back or skipped altogether with the expected return of Andrew Cashner this weekend.

Stauffer (2-1) was at least able to record a strikeout against the only batter he retired, but that was the only positive to take away from Wednesday's start, in which he surrendered five singles and a double before being removed. He owns a 4.50 ERA and 24:11 K:BB ratio in 24 innings. Stauffer is scheduled to face the Pirates Tuesday.

Staffer is 2-0 in 13 appearances, only one of which has come as a starter. He has a 1.90 ERA in 23 2/3 innings of work on the season. At this point, it is not clear if he will make another start.
