  • Twins' Josh Staumont: Activated, optioned to Triple-A

    The Twins reinstated Staumont (calf) from the 15-day injured list Friday and optioned him to Triple-A St. Paul, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    A left calf strain has kept Staumont on the sideline since Opening Day. He made three rehab appearances at St. Paul and will remain with the Saints after allowing three runs across 3.2 innings, though he could return to the majors if the Twins find themselves in need of a fresh bullpen arm later in the season.

  • Twins' Josh Staumont: Poised for rehab assignment

    Staumont (calf) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul on Tuesday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Staumont has been out all season after tweaking his left calf late in spring training, but he's ready to test things out in game action. He made seven appearances this spring before getting hurt, so he shouldn't need too many outings before joining the Twins' bullpen.

  • Twins' Josh Staumont: Hits IL with calf strain

    The Twins placed Staumont on the 15-day injured list Thursday with a left calf strain.

    Staumont was on track to make the Twins' Opening Day roster, but his bid was derailed when he slipped in the bullpen earlier this week and apparently suffered the calf strain in the process. The transaction is retroactive to Monday, so Staumont will be eligible to return from the IL as soon as April 9.

  • Twins' Josh Staumont: Nursing knee issue

    Staumont is having his knee evaluated Tuesday after he slipped in the bullpen, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribunereports.

    The right-hander is set to make Minnesota's Opening Day roster, but the knee issue could end up sending him to the injured list. Staumont posted a 5.40 ERA in 21 outing for the Royals last season and is likely to fill a low-leverage role for the Twins when healthy.

  • Twins' Josh Staumont: Velocity bouncing back

    Staumont reached 98 mph with his fastball in his last outing Saturday after only reaching 92-93 mph earlier in the spring, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. He's given up two earned runs with four strikeouts and five walks in 4.2 innings this spring.

    He had an 95.8-mph average fastball last season. Staumont is working his way back after undergoing thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in July. He has a minor-league option left, so he may begin the season in Triple-A as he builds back to full speed. It's also possible he begins the season in the majors with injuries to Caleb Thielbar (hamstring) and Jhoan Duran (oblique).

  • Twins' Josh Staumont: Decreased velocity this spring

  • Twins' Josh Staumont: Considered 100 percent

    Staumont (shoulder) will not be under any restrictions at the start of spring training, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Staumont underwent thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in July but told reporters Wednesday that he's been throwing for months. It's an operation that is notoriously difficult to come back from. Staumont has posted a 6.09 ERA over 63 appearances since the start of the 2022 season.

  • Twins' Josh Staumont: Signs one-year deal with Twins

    Staumont (shoulder) signed a one-year contract with the Twins on Wednesday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.

    Hayes says the deal is worth a little less than $1 million and notes that Staumont will have a year of arbitration eligibility in 2025, as well. Staumont was non-tendered by the Royals last month after undergoing thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in July. The 30-year-old has posted a 6.09 ERA over 63 appearances since the start of the 2022 season, but from 2019-21 he held a 2.93 ERA and 124:53 K:BB over 110.2 innings. The track record of pitchers coming back from TOS surgery is checkered, at best, but on a one-year pact the Twins felt Staumont was worth a roll of the dice.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: To have season-ending surgery

    Staumont (neck) is expected to have thoracic outlet syndrome surgery in the coming days, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    Staumont's upcoming surgery will almost certainly end his season. The right-hander will close 2023 with a mediocre 5.40 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 24:13 K:BB through 20 innings. The Royals have not indicated if he'll be delayed to start spring training in 2024. Staumont was moved to the 60-day injured list Friday.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Bullpen session on tap Wednesday

    Staumont (neck) played catch Monday and will throw a bullpen session Wednesday, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

    MRI results revealed Staumont's neck strain wasn't as severe as initially thought, so the 29-year-old reliever began throwing slightly ahead of schedule. He will likely require multiple bullpen sessions before heading on a rehab assignment, meaning he's likely to return near the beginning of July.

  • Royals' Josh Staumont: Placed on IL with neck strain

    Kansas City placed Staumont on the 15-day injured list Wednesday, retroactive to June 6, with a neck strain.

    Staumont will serve as the opener during Monday's series opener in St. Louis, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.

He will fill the roster spot previously held by Dylan Coleman, who was optioned to Omaha on Thursday.
