Twins' Bailey Ober: Second strong outing
Ober threw two scoreless innings with two strikeouts in Wednesday's spring training win over Toronto. Ober has averaged more than 93 mph with his fastball in both spring starts after averaging 91.5 mph during the 2022 regular season, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
Ober has thrown three scoreless innings with five strikeouts and a walk in two spring starts. Ober is challenging for a spot in the rotation, but he's likely the sixth starter at the moment and thus could begin the season in the minors. It's also possible the Twins could opt for a six-man rotation as Kenta Maeda (elbow) works his way back from Tommy John surgery. Ober will make the decision difficult if he continues to pitch this well during spring training.... See More ... See Less

Twins' Bailey Ober: Making second rehab start
Ober (groin) is scheduled to make his second rehab start Tuesday with Single-A Fort Myers, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.
Ober joined the affiliate last week for his first game action in three months and looked good over his three-inning outing, striking out three while allowing one run on three hits. The 42-pitch appearance suggests that Ober will be built up as a starter during his rehab program, so he'll likely require at least one or two additional outings beyond Tuesday before the Twins bring him back from the 60-day injured list. Before being shut down with an aponeurotic plate injury, Ober made seven starts for Minnesota and produced a 4.01 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 29:7 K:BB across 33.2 innings.... See More ... See Less

Twins' Bailey Ober: Facing hitters again
Ober (groin) was scheduled to face hitters in a live batting practice session Monday, MLB.com reports.
The live session represents a step forward in the rehab process for Ober, who has been throwing full-effort bullpen sessions featuring all of his pitches over the past couple of weeks. The Twins remain optimistic that Ober will be able to return from the 60-day injured list at some point in September, but it's unclear if he'll have enough time to properly build up for a starting role with the big club. Given that he's been sidelined since June 1 with the right groin strain, Ober will likely need to make multiple minor-league rehab appearances prior to being activated.... See More ... See Less
