Power Rankings: Twins on the rise

Two rainouts last week didn't prevent Jose Berrios from shining against the Rockies on Thursday. His dazzling performance is among the reasons the Twins have entered the top half of the rankings.

Revisiting preseason questions: Twins

In mid-February, we wondered if Byron Buxton could build on his hot finish to 2016, but the results so far this season have been ugly, as he's striking out 34 percent of the time.

Joey Gallo just barely edged out Jose Abreu for the longest bomb in MLB on Friday. Kennys Vargas' game-tying shot in the ninth inning against the Royals was next, with a pair of D-backs rounding out the list.

Prospects who could push their teams over the top

A former second-round pick is dominating out of the bullpen at Double-A for the Twins and could be an option down the stretch if Minnesota is still contending.

Real or not? Jose Berrios breaks out

Berrios' 11-strikeout performance could be a sign that his previous struggles are behind him. It also earned him high praise from one of his opponents.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Fittingly during these heady times for the Rockies and Twins, they split Thursday's doubleheader. Minnesota seeks its first division title since 2010. Colorado hasn't won its division in 24 previous seasons but went to the 2007 World Series as a wild card.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Jose Berrios tossed an absolute gem tonight, thanks in part to an especially sharp curveball: Four of his 11 K's and career bests with six swings and misses and 19 total strikes (out of 35 thrown). This might well be his "hurdle clearing" start in the bigs as far as becoming start-worthy in fantasy. Berrios' next start is at Baltimore, likely on Wednesday. After this, he gets my endorsement for that game.

Eric Karabell ESPN Senior Writer 

Another terrific outing for Twins RHP Jose Berrios as he strikes out 11 Rockies over 7 2/3 shutout innings. It's only two starts but how can't we be impressed? His 2016 rookie stats don't matter anymore. He's commanding all his pitches. Getting strikeouts. Add him in all formats in case the pitcher so many of us recommended entering last year really is great. Really, we'd all be fine with a 3.00 ERA and 8 Ks per nine. Now that seems reasonable.
