  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Avoids arbitration

    Garlick (wrist) signed a one-year, $750,000 deal with the Twins on Monday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    After battling through an injury-filled season in 2022, Garlick will run it back for his third season with the Twins in 2023. His .233/.284/.433 slash line from last year may not jump off the page at first glance, but he's proven himself to be effective against left-handed pitching, as his OPS jumps up to .805 against southpaws.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Shifts to 60-day IL

    The Twins transferred Garlick (wrist) from the 10-day injured list to the 60-day IL on Monday.

    Garlick wasn't able to take part in any minor-league rehab games after he was placed on the IL on Sept. 16 with the left wrist sprain, and even though he's likely made some progress in his recovery over the past two and a half weeks, the Twins won't have him return in 2022. He'll wrap up his second season in Minnesota with a .233/.284/.433 slash line and nine home runs over 162 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Lands on injured list

    Garlick landed on the injured list with a left wrist sprain Friday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    Garlick exited Thursday's game against the Royals with pain in his left wrist and hand. The injury turned out to be serious enough to sideline him for at least 10 days. He'll be eligible to return for the final nine games for the regular season, but it's possible his campaign is done. Mark Contreras was recalled to take his place on the roster.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Exits with hand injury

    Garlick left Thursday's game in the seventh inning due to pain in his wrist and hand, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    He underwent testing after the game. It sounds like he'll need a day or two off as a result.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Takes seat Wednesday

    Garlick is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Royals.

    Garlick has benefited from an uptick in playing time of late while Byron Buxton and Max Kepler have missed time with injuries, but the 30-year-old will get a breather Wednesday. He had started each of the past three contests, going 1-for-11 with five strikeouts.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Homers in return

    Garlick went 3-for-4 for a solo home run and two additional runs scored in a 9-0 win over the Giants on Friday.

    Garlick had been out of action since suffering a rib cage injury Aug. 1 and rapped out three hits from the leadoff spot in his return to the lineup Friday night. Luis Arraez was getting the day off. Garlick's solo home run came off position player Austin Wynns, who was called in to pitch in a lopsided affair that the Giants had conceded. Garlick should operate out of a backup role for the remainder of the season with most of his playing time coming against lefty starters. He is slashing .275/.339/.550 in 109 at-bats this season.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Reinstated from IL

    Garlick (ribs) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Friday.

    Garlick will return to the big-league roster after missing the last 21 games with a rib cage injury. He went 1-for-7 with a walk over his two-game rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul and will be an option for the Twins versus left-handed pitching down the stretch. Tim Beckham was designated for assignment Friday to open a roster spot for Garlick.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Close to rehab assignment

    Garlick (rib cage) is progressing toward taking live at-bats and could begin a rehab assignment within a few days, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Garlick has been on the injured list since Aug. 4 with a bruised right rib cage. The righty-hitting 30-year-old outfielder has been a key weapon against left-handed pitching this season, producing a .928 OPS in those matchups.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Starting rehab assignment Wednesday

    Garlick (rib cage) said he will report to Triple-A St. Paul to begin a rehab assignment Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Garlick noted that the pain in his bruised rib cage has gone down significantly since he was first placed on the 10-day injured list Aug. 4, so he may need only one or two rehab games before he's deemed ready to rejoin the big club. He could be activated as soon as Friday, depending on how he fares on the rehab assignment. When healthy, the righty-hitting Garlick has been a fixture in the lineup versus left-handed pitching.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Begins playing catch

    Garlick (rib cage) has been able to play light catch, but is still too sore to swing a bat, MLB.com reports.

    Garlick suffered a cartilage fracture after running into the outfield wall at Petco Park on July 29. He's making some progress, but is still a ways away from a definitive timetable. It sounds like he won't return until September.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Placed on 10-day IL

    Garlick was placed on the 10-day injured list Thursday with a right rib cage contusion Thursday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Garlick sat out the last two games with his rib injury, and he'll ultimately be forced to spend time on the injured list. Gilberto Celestino (personal) was reinstated from the paternity list and should see increased playing time in Garlick's absence, while Mark Contreras and Jake Cave are also in line for additional at-bats.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Sitting due to rib issue

    Garlick (rib) is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Tigers.

    Garlick normally starts against southpaws such as the Tigers' Tyler Alexander, so the former player's absence from the lineup Wednesday suggests he hasn't completely recovered from the inflamed right rib that caused him to leave Monday's 5-3 extra-inning loss. With Garlick on the bench, the Twins will roll out a starting outfield of Jake Cave, Nick Gordon and Mark Contreras from left to right.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Leaves with rib injury

    Garlick left Monday's game against the Tigers with right rib inflammation, Megan Ryan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Garlick took two at-bats Monday before departing the contest. The extent of his injury is not yet known, so it remains to be seen if he will miss any additional time.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Opportunities picking up

    Garlick will start in left field and bat cleanup in Sunday's game against the Padres.

    He'll take over in left field for the fourth time in five games after going 3-for-10 with a solo home run and two doubles over that stretch. The righty-hitting Garlick should be a mainstay in the lineup versus left-handed pitching moving forward, but his ability to pick up regular at-bats versus righties may hinge on the health of Alex Kirilloff (wrist). The Twins are viewing Kirilloff as day-to-day after he exited Saturday's win with a sore right wrist, an issue that forced him to the injured list for three weeks earlier this season.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Gets cleanup assignment Wednesday

    Garlick will start in right field and bat cleanup in Wednesday's game against the Brewers.

    Garlick will be starting for just the second time since being activated from the 10-day injured list June 19. He'll be filling in as the Twins' starting right fielder in place of Max Kepler, who exited Tuesday's loss with a bruised right knee. Even if Kepler's injury proves to be more serious than anticipated, the righty-hitting Garlick likely wouldn't be in line for anything more than a short-side platoon role in the Minnesota outfield.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Back from injured list

    Garlick (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list Sunday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    Galick has been sidelined just over two weeks by a strained left hamstring, but he'll rejoin the big-league roster after going 3-for-11 with a solo homer during a three-game rehab stint with Triple-A St. Paul. The 30-year-old won't immediately rejoin the lineup Sunday and will serve as a reserve outfielder now that he's healthy.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Making progress in rehab games

    Garlick (hamstring) has gone 1-for-5 over his first two rehab games for Triple-A St. Paul, and the Twins will decide his next step after he plays Saturday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    It sounds like Garlick will be activated from the injured list after the weekend if all goes well. The 30-year-old has a .250/.324/.567 slash line through 68 plate appearances in the majors this year with six homers and 14 RBI.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Set for rehab stint

    Garlick (hamstring) is scheduled to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul on Wednesday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Garlick has been on the 10-day injured list since June 4 due to a left hamstring strain, but he's making steady progress and will clear another hurdle Wednesday by embarking on a rehab stint. He figures to need at least a few games in the minors before being activated from the IL.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Placed on 10-day injured list

    Garlick (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday, retroactive to June 4.

    Garlick sustained a left hamstring strain during Friday's win in Toronto and will be forced to miss at least a week and a half due to the injury. It's not yet clear when Garlick will be able to return to game action, but Gilberto Celestino should see a slight uptick in playing time as outfield depth.

  • Twins' Kyle Garlick: Still out Sunday

    Garlick (hamstring) is not in Sunday's lineup against the Blue Jays.

    He suffered a left hamstring strain after hitting two homers in Friday's game and hasn't played since. Prior to the two-homer game, Garlick had hit .194 with one home run over his last 14 games.
