  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Hit hard in Baltimore

    Paddack (0-1) took the loss Tuesday against the Orioles, allowing nine runs on 12 hits and a walk over 5.1 innings. He struck out two.

    While Paddack's 5.1 innings pitched were a season high, he didn't miss many bats, allowing three runs in the second inning and another four in the fourth en route to his first loss of the year. The 28-year-old Paddack's ERA is up to 8.36 with a 2.07 WHIP and 9:5 K:BB through his first three starts (14 innings) this year. He's currently slated to face the White Sox at home in his next outing.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Goes 4.2 innings vs. Dodgers

    Paddack didn't factor into the decision Wednesday against the Dodgers, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out five.

    After allowing a run in the first inning, Paddack rebounded to put together a solid outing, holding the Dodgers to just one additional run on a Max Muncy solo homer. However, the right-hander allowed a pair of hits in the fifth and ultimately left the contest one out away from qualifying for the win. Paddack's allowed four runs on 12 hits while striking out seven through his first two starts this season. He's currently in line for a tough road matchup against the Orioles in his next outing.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Lasts four innings in Milwaukee

    Paddack didn't factor into the decision Wednesday against the Brewers, allowing two runs on six hits and two walks over four innings in a 7-3 victory for the Twins. He struck out two.

    Making his first big-league start in nearly two years, Paddack threw 82 pitches (47 strikes) and uncorked two wild pitches in an inefficient performance, but he mostly limited hard contact aside from a Rhys Hoskins solo shot in the fourth inning. The 28-year-old right-hander is looking to get his career back on track after missing almost all of the last two seasons while recovering from his second Tommy John surgery, but he hasn't thrown more than 108.1 innings in a season since 2019. Paddack lines up to make his next start at home early next week against the Dodgers.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: First start coming Wednesday

    Paddack is scheduled to start Wednesday's game against the Brewers at American Family Field.

    After making his return from Tommy John surgery late last season, Paddack's lone three appearances with Minnesota came as a reliever, so he'll be making his first regular-season start since May 8, 2022 when he takes the hill Wednesday. The right-hander broke camp with a rotation spot in hand despite not being particularly sharp during Grapefruit League play, finishing with a 4.73 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 10:3 K:BB in 13.1 innings.

  • Twins' Chris Paddack: Working on cutter

    Paddack has added a cutter to his arsenal and threw it four times in his spring debut Friday against the University of Minnesota, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Paddack threw 1.2 scoreless innings with two strikeouts and a walk. "I've seen guys throw it, but I've never thrown it," Paddack said. "I'm trying to learn how to use it in certain counts, aggressive hitters, behind in the count, whatever that might be."

    After making a full recovery from his May 2022 Tommy John surgery, Paddack returned to action for the Twins in late September and struck out eight while allowing three earned runs across five innings over two relief appearances. He then struck out six over 3.2 scoreless frames during Minnesota's postseason run. Adding another pitch to his repertoire could help him return to his 2019 form, when he had a 3.33 ERA and 26.9 percent strikeout rate over 140.2 innings for the Padres. While he's penciled in as the No. 4 starter, Paddack's innings may be limited in his first full season back from Tommy John surgery.
