  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Heads to bench Monday

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Hits bench Thursday

    Jeffers is out of the lineup for Thursday's game against the White Sox.

    After being activated from the 60-day injured list Tuesday, Jeffers made his return to the lineup in Wednesday's 8-4 win and went 0-for-3 with a walk. He'll take a seat for the day game after a night game, but Jeffers should be part of a timeshare at catcher with Gary Sanchez for the final week of the season, if not the Twins' preferred option behind the dish.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Reinstated from IL

    Jeffers (thumb) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Tuesday.

    Jeffers has been out since July 14 after having surgery on his right thumb. He hit .229 with three home runs, four walks and four strikeouts in nine games during a rehab assignment. Sandy Leon (knee surgery) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. While he is not in Tuesday's lineup, Jeffers should play a decent amount over the final nine games of the season.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Rehab moves to Triple-A

    Jeffers (thumb) will report to Triple-A St. Paul for a rehab assignment Friday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    There is still no target date in place for Jeffers to return from surgery on his right thumb, but moving his rehab assignment to Triple-A is a good sign and leaves room for a possible return before the end of the season. He is scheduled to serve as St. Paul's designated hitter Friday.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Starts playing rehab games

    Jeffers (thumb) has started to play rehab games in instructional league, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    It sounds like he could return in the next week or so, but there's no definitive timetable for his activation from the injured list. It's also possible he could be shut down with any setback with the Twins falling far out of playoff contention. Jeffers has been on the 10-day IL since undergoing surgery to repair an avulsion fracture of his right thumb July 20.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Transferred to 60-day IL

    Jeffers (thumb) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Saturday.

    The move should have no impact on Jeffers' eventual return date. He'll be eligible to return in mid-September, but he isn't expected to have a chance to return until the last few days of the month.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Starting baseball activities

    Jeffers (thumb) will head to Florida to begin baseball activities, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.

    Jeffers continues to set his sights on a return during the team's final homestand of the 2022 regular season, which runs from Sept. 27 to Sept. 29 against the White Sox. His progress over the next few weeks will likely dictate whether he can meet this goal. Jeffers has been on the 10-day IL since undergoing surgery to repair an avulsion fracture of his right thumb July 20.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Eyeing late-September return

    Jeffers (thumb) is scheduled to receive additional X-rays Monday and could be cleared to start catching bullpen sessions as soon as Friday, MLB.com reports.

    Jeffers has been sidelined since undergoing surgery July 20 to repair an avulsion fracture in the joint of the thumb on his throwing hand. Assuming he's able to catch some side sessions this weekend without incident, Jeffers plans to head to the Twins' spring complex in Florida next week to continue his rehab program. He's hopeful that he'll be ready to start a minor-league rehab assignment in the middle of September before returning from the 10-day injured list before the end of the month, which would allow him to get a few games under his belt prior to a potential playoff run. In the meantime, the Twins are expected to get by with a timeshare of Gary Sanchez and Sandy Leon at catcher.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Ditches cast

    Jeffers had the cast removed on his surgically repaired right thumb Aug. 1 and is now sporting a removable splint, MLB.com reports.

    At the time he underwent surgery July 20 to repair an avulsion fracture of the thumb, Jeffers was projected to miss 6-to-8 weeks. Assuming that timeline still holds, Jeffers won't be a realistic option to rejoin the Twins until the early part of September at the soonest. Minnesota will get by with Gary Sanchez as its everyday catcher in the meantime.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Set to miss extended time

    Jeffers has a small fracture in his right thumb and will be sidelined for at least 6-to-8 weeks, Megan Ryan of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Jeffers was initially diagnosed with a right thumb contusion when he landed on the 10-day injured list Friday, but he underwent further testing that revealed a fracture. The 25-year-old is unlikely to be available to return to game action until at least September, and he'll presumably require a rehab assignment prior to rejoining the Twins. Gary Sanchez is in line to serve as Minnesota's primary catcher in Jeffers' absence, while Caleb Hamilton will serve as the No. 2 option behind the dish.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Riding pine Friday

    Jeffers isn't starting Friday against the White Sox.

    Jeffers went 2-for-7 with a run, a walk and a strikeout over the last two games and will retreat to the bench Friday. Gary Sanchez is starting behind the plate.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Out with bruised thumb

    Jeffers was placed on the 10-day injured list Friday with a right thumb contusion.

    Jeffers presumably picked up the injury during Thursday's matchup with the White Sox, when he went 1-for-4 with a strikeout. According to Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic, manager Rocco Baldelli believes the injury is more serious than a typical contusion, so the 25-year-old may be sidelined beyond the 10-day minumum. Gary Sanchez should operate as Minnesota's primary catcher in the meantime, while Caleb Hamilton was called up to fill backup duties.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: On bench Tuesday

    Jeffers is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Brewers, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

    Gary Sanchez will form a battery with starting pitcher Josh Winder while Jeffers gets a breather. Jeffers was behind the plate for three of the Twins' last four games and went 6-for-13 with two home runs, a double, five RBI and three runs over that stretch.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Pops seventh homer

    Jeffers went 2-for-4 with a home run and two RBI in Sunday's 6-5 win over the Rangers.

    Jeffers has hit safely in three straight games, going 6-for-13 with two homers, five RBI, three runs scored and a double in that span. The 25-year-old backstop's long ball Sunday was a big one, as it put the Twins ahead 5-4 in the sixth inning. He's upped his slash line to .211/.288/.378 with seven long balls, 25 RBI and 22 runs scored through 206 plate appearances. Jeffers is likely to continue splitting playing time with Gary Sanchez behind the plate.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: On bench Saturday

    Jeffers isn't starting Saturday's game against Texas.

    Jeffers went 4-for-9 with a homer, a double, three RBI, two runs and three strikeouts over the last two games and will get a breather Saturday. Gary Sanchez is starting behind the dish while Gilberto Celestino enters the lineup in center field.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Sits Tuesday

    Jeffers is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

    Jeffers returned from a two-game absence due to a right thumb injury to catch nine of the 10 innings of Monday's 6-3 win, so his absence from the lineup a day later isn't a major surprise. Gary Sanchez will step in for Jeffers behind the plate.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: No hits in return

    Jeffers (thumb) went 0-for-4 in Monday's 6-3 extra-inning win over the White Sox.

    Jeffers missed two games after suffering a right thumb contusion Friday versus the Orioles. Since a five-game hitting streak in June, the catcher has gone just 2-for-21 (.095). He's slashing .192/.276/.331 with five home runs, 20 RBI, 19 runs scored and nine doubles in 55 contests. Gary Sanchez's semi-regular presence at designated hitter should allow Jeffers fairly steady playing time despite his lackluster batting numbers.

  • Twins' Ryan Jeffers: Returns to action

    Jeffers (thumb) is in the lineup for Monday's game against the White Sox.

    Jeffers has not played since injuring his thumb Friday, but he is ready to get back on the field. He will get the nod behind the plate and occupy the ninth spot in the Twins' batting order.
