Player Outlook
Jose Miranda failed to capitalize on an opportunity to win an everyday role with the Twins amid a shoulder issue and his future role with the organization isn't clear. Despite dealing with a sore shoulder in spring training, Miranda began the season as Minnesota's everyday third baseman. He struggled and was soon sent to Triple-A on May 10 after hitting just .220/.275/.318. Miranda wasn't much better at Triple-A, where he hit just .255/.326/.360 in 39 games. His shoulder issues soon resurfaced and he had season-ending surgery in September. Miranda was a late bloomer in the minors where he hit .344/.401/.572 with 30 home runs between Double-A and Triple-A in 2021 at age 23. He then hit .287 with a .797 OPS in his final 106 games in 2022. The above-average power he displayed in 2022 cratered in 2023 (just a .092 IS0) though he maintained a good strikeout rate (15.8% K%). Meanwhile, Royce Lewis returned from a torn ACL and established himself at third base and several other corner infield prospects emerged. He'll need to show his sharp decline last season was due to the shoulder injury in order to factor into the corner infield mix again.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Officially lands on IL

    The Twins placed Miranda on the 10-day injured list Sunday with a low back strain. Miranda hadn't played since Wednesday due to the injury and will hit the shelf in advance of the Twins' final game before the All-Star break Sunday in San Francisco. Because the transaction is retroactive to Thursday, Miranda will be eligible to come off the IL as soon as next Sunday, when the Twins will play their second game coming out of the break. Until Miranda is back in the mix, the Twins should have a regular spot in the lineup against right-handed pitching available for Matt Wallner.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Heading to IL

    Miranda (back) will be placed on the injured list Sunday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Miranda was a late scratch Friday due to lower-back stiffness and he didn't take the field Saturday. With the All-Star break coming this week, Minnesota decided that it'd be best to give Miranda extended time off to let the back issue heal. Diego Castillo is expected to be called up in a corresponding move and should help out at third base behind Brooks Lee while Miranda is sidelined.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Remains sidelined Saturday

    Miranda (back) isn't in the Twins' lineup for Saturday's game versus San Francisco. Miranda was scratched from Minnesota's lineup ahead of Friday's contest due to back stiffness, and he'll need at least another day to recover before returning to the starting nine. In his absence, Matt Wallner will serve as the Twins' DH and bat fifth.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Scratched with back stiffness

    Miranda was scratched from Minnesota's lineup ahead of Friday's game versus the Giants due to lower-back stiffness, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports. Miranda was originally slated to start at third base Friday, but instead it will be Brooks Lee at the hot corner with Willi Castro at second base, opening up a spot in the outfield for Matt Wallner. The severity of Miranda's injury remains uncertain, though the Twins may offer more details on his status following Friday's game.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Resting after historic streak ends

    Miranda is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Astros. Miranda will get a breather for the series finale after he recorded a pair of base hits and was hit by a pitch before flying out in his final at-bat of Saturday's 9-3 win. The flyout ended a streak of 13 consecutive plate appearances in which he got on base and 12 consecutive at-bats with a hit, the latter of which tied an MLB record. Miranda still has a 10-game active hitting streak, which he'll presumably put on hold Sunday before he likely returns to the lineup for Monday's series opener against the White Sox.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Ties major-league record in win

    Miranda went 2-for-3 with an RBI in Saturday's 9-3 win over the Astros. He tied a major-league record in the fourth inning by recording a hit in his 12th consecutive at-bat. It's safe to say Miranda has been on fire, registering his third consecutive multi-hit effort and extending his overall hit streak to 10 games. He has enjoyed a major bounce-back campaign in 2024, slashing .328/.370/.531 with nine home runs, 43 RBI and 35 runs scored over 262 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Sets franchise record in loss

    Miranda went 4-for-4 with a homer, a double, two RBI and three runs scored in Friday's 13-12 loss to the Astros. Miranda came a triple shy of the cycle and set a Twins franchise record in the seventh inning by tallying his 10th consecutive plate appearance with a hit. The 26-year-old launched a 414-foot solo shot off Shawn Dubin earlier in the game for his ninth homer of the season. Miranda now sports a nine-game hit streak over which he's batted an absurd .559 (19-for-34) with seven extra base hits, 12 RBI and 11 runs scored.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Swipes second bag

    Miranda went 1-for-4 with a stolen base in Friday's 3-2 extra-inning loss to the Mariners. Miranda is 18-for-49 (.367) over his last 15 contests, adding eight extra-base hits and 14 RBI in that span. The third baseman's streak of drawing a walk in five straight games ended Friday, but he's still showing good plate discipline with a 5.6 percent walk rate and 14.1 percent strikeout rate. For the year, Miranda is slashing .293/.339/.491 with eight home runs, 35 RBI, 26 runs scored and two steals over 65 contests. The Twins continue to rotate Miranda and Royce Lewis between third base and designated hitter, offering both consistent playing time.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Belts three-run homer

    Miranda went 2-for-5 with a three-run home run Thursday against the Rays. Miranda's clutch homer came with two on and two out in the ninth inning to tie the game and send it into extra innings. It was the eighth blast of the season for Miranda, who continues to distance himself from last year's nightmarish campaign that included a .566 OPS. The third-year pro is now slashing .280/.317/.477 with eight homers, 12 doubles, a triple, 27 RBI, 23 runs and a steal over 205 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Breather in Game 2

    Miranda is not in the starting lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader with the Athletics. Miranda will head to the bench after he went 2-for-4 in the team's 6-2 win in Game 1. Trevor Larnach will slot in at designated hitter while Manuel Margot enters the lineup in left field and bats seventh against Oakland.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Starts at first base, bats third

    Miranda will start at first base and bat third in Tuesday's game against the Yankees. Miranda has been the Twins' primary third baseman for the last few weeks, but that position will be unavailable most days now with Royce Lewis back from the injured list. However, it would appear to be a good sign for Miranda that he remains in the lineup in a prominent spot even with Lewis back in the fold. Miranda has an .883 OPS with four home runs over his last 50 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Homers, doubles in game-winner

    Miranda went 2-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and a run scored Sunday against the Astros. Miranda collected his 10th multi-hit game of the season, homering in the sixth to knot the game at three, then adding a go-ahead RBI double in the eighth that served as the game-winner for the Twins. After struggling to a .211 average in 40 games last season, Miranda has fared much better this season, posting a slash line of .280/.311/.469 with six homers, nine doubles, 20 RBI and 19 runs through 151 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Playing time picking up

    Miranda will start at third base and bat sixth in Sunday's game against the Rangers. Willi Castro looked as though he would settle in as the Twins' primary third baseman after Byron Buxton returned from the injured list around the middle of May, but Minnesota has instead kept Castro in the regular lineup by moving him all over the outfield. As a result, Miranda has gained traction at the hot corner of late; Sunday will mark his ninth consecutive start at the position. Miranda has earned the playing time by producing a .986 OPS over his last eight starts, but he could nonetheless see his opportunities decrease by the end of next week, when Royce Lewis (quadricep) could be back from the IL.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Retreating to bench Monday

    Miranda is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Mariners. Miranda should be an indirect beneficiary from a playing-time standpoint while Byron Buxton (knee) is on the 10-day injured list, as Miranda had started at third base in each of the previous three games while Willi Castro moved to the outfield to help cover for Buxton's absence. However, Castro will draw the start at the hot corner Monday, opening up center field for Manuel Margot.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Gets third straight start

    Miranda will start at third base and bat ninth in Sunday's game against the Red Sox. Carlos Correa's return from the 10-day injured list Monday appeared to have pushed Miranda back into a reserve role, but the 25-year-old has since seen his playing time pick back up after Byron Buxton (knee) landed on the IL on Friday. With Willi Castro shifting to the outfield to cover for Buxton, Miranda has started at the hot corner in all three games this weekend.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Doubles twice in win

    Miranda went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI in Sunday's victory over the Angels. Miranda opened the game's scoring with an RBI single in the fourth inning. He later drove in Minnesota's 11th and final run of the game with an RBI double in the eighth. Miranda has collected multiple hits in three straight games, going 7-for-13 (.538) with four extra-base hits in the process. His slash line is up to .292/.320/.500 through 16 games.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Homers in win

    Miranda went 2-for-4 with a solo homer in Thursday's 6-3 win over the White Sox. Miranda hasn't been able to get on base since getting called up April 8, as he entered Thursday hitting just .200 (7-for-35) with one walk in 13 games. He'll need to keep on a roll to get regular time at third base. However, Kyle Farmer is slumping even worse with a .297 OPS as the Twins struggle to find production at third base in the absence of Royce Lewis (quadriceps).

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Blasts first homer

    Miranda went 3-for-4 with a home run and two RBI during the Twins' 7-4 loss to the Orioles. Miranda came into the game with just two hits in 13 at-bats but topped that mark with three hits Monday to go along with a 411-foot blast to left-center that represented his first home run of the season. The 26-year-old Miranda was recalled on April 8 with Monday's game representing his fifth start and seventh appearance since rejoining the big club. He followed up a strong rookie campaign in 2022 by struggling significantly last season and failing to make the club out of camp this season. However, until Royce Lewis (quad) returns, Miranda should continue to see a decent amount of playing time.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Won't be regular third baseman

    Twins manager Rocco Baldelli said Monday that Miranda could play third base "maybe a couple times a week," Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports. Miranda is starting at third base Monday versus the Dodgers after being recalled earlier in the day, and there is an opening for playing time there while Royce Lewis (quad) is sidelined. However, the Twins see Miranda as mainly a first baseman and designated hitter at this point, and those positions are more difficult to crack right now. In other words, it sounds like he'll be a part-time player for the time being.

  • Twins' Jose Miranda: Joining big-league club

    The Twins recalled Miranda from Triple-A St. Paul on Monday. The 25-year-old missed out on Minnesota's Opening Day roster but will join the big club less than two weeks into the season. Miranda is unlikely to see significant playing time, but he could be an injury away from a more regular role since Royce Lewis (quadriceps) is already out for the foreseeable future.
