  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Allows one run in no-decision

    Woods Richardson did not factor into the decision Friday against the Guardians, allowing one run on four hits and no walks over 5.1 innings. He struck out two.

    Woods Richardson looked much steadier in his outing Friday night, allowing just five baserunners by scattering four singles and issuing one hit-by-pitch. It also marked his first career start without allowing a walk, as he yielded at least one base on balls in each of his previous six starts. The 23-year-old right-hander is scheduled to pitch against the Nationals on the road in his next outing.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Hit hard in no-decision

    Woods Richardson came away with a no-decision in Saturday's 10-8 loss to the Blue Jays, surrendering five runs on eight hits and a walk over 4.1 innings. He struck out two.

    The Twins spotted the right-hander a 4-0 lead by the top of the second inning, but Woods Richardson quickly ran into trouble of his own as half of the eight hits off him went for extra bases, including homers by Bo Bichette and Davis Schneider. Woods Richardson has failed to complete five innings in two of his last three starts, but he'll still carry a respectable 3.24 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 23:6 K:BB through 25 innings into his next outing, which lines up to come on the road next weekend in Cleveland.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Dominates against Mariners

    Woods Richardson allowed a hit and a walk over six shutout frames in a no-decision Monday. He struck out eight during the win over Seattle.

    Woods Richardson struck out the first four batters he faced and five of the first six through two perfect frames. Only one Mariner reached scoring position against him as he turned in the best outing of his MLB career. The 23-year-old righty generated 10 whiffs, matching his season high. Woods Richardson dropped his ERA to 1.74 with a 21:5 K:BB through 20.2 frames. His next start is projected to be this weekend in Toronto.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Gives up seven hits

    Woods Richardson came away with a no-decision Tuesday against the White Sox, giving up two runs (one earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out two batters across 3.2 innings.

    Woods Richardson was fortunate to only surrender two runs Tuesday after allowing nine men to reach base in less than four innings, but an Eloy Jimenez RBI single and a fielding error from Carlos Santana still put the Twins in a 2-0 hole to begin the game. Woods Richardson now carries a 2.45 ERA and 1.36 WHIP across 14.2 innings through three starts, and he will likely get a chance to improve upon his shortest outing of the season Monday against the Mariners.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Sticking around in rotation

    Woods Richardson is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the White Sox.

    Woods Richardson will be making his second straight turn through the Minnesota rotation after he was called up from Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday to replace the struggling Louie Varland, who was optioned to the minors. While making his second start with the big club of the season Thursday, the right-hander took a no-decision against the White Sox, striking out six and allowing two earned runs on seven hits and one walk over five innings. The outing was good enough to earn Woods Richardson at least one more turn through the rotation, with the 23-year-old getting another crack against the White Sox on the road.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Solid start against White Sox

    Woods Richardson gave up two runs on seven hits and one walk over five innings in Thursday's win over the White Sox, but he didn't factor in the no-decision. He struck out six.

    Woods Richardson pitched well enough to likely keep him in the rotation for at least another start or two as the Twins look for a fifth starter. He's shown increased velocity this season with an average 93.2-mph fastball, which is up nearly three ticks from last season. The 23-year-old has given up just three runs with an 11:2 K:BB across 11 innings through two starts.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Starting Thursday

    Woods Richardson will be recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday to start against the White Sox, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    The 23-year-old righty was originally expected to join the Twins' rotation for Friday's game against the Angels, but he will instead come up a day early to give Bailey Ober an extra day of rest before starting Friday. Woods Richardson fared well during his first big-league start of the year, allowing one run across six innings in a win over the Tigers on April 13. However, he has struggled to find success in the minors, accumulating a 6.08 ERA across 13.1 innings in three starts. Ronny Henriquez will be optioned to St. Paul upon Woods Richardson's arrival.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Recalled ahead of start

    The Twins recalled Woods Richardson from Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday.

    He will start Thursday's game against the White Sox, and with Louie Varland back in the minors, Woods Richardson will have an opportunity to stick in the Twins rotation for a while. The right-hander spun six innings of one-run ball against the Tigers on April 13, but a 6.08 ERA across 13.1 innings in three starts with St. Paul this season suggests that fantasy managers should exercise caution with him.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Likely entering MLB rotation Friday

    Woods Richardson will likely start Friday's game for the Twins in Anaheim, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Louie Varland was dispatched to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, and manager Rocco Baldelli confirmed that Woods Richardson is lined up to join the big-league rotation. Woods Richardson was effective in his lone MLB start earlier this season at Detroit, and he averaged 93.4 mph with his fastball in that outing after sitting at 91 mph with that pitch in 2022 and 2023. If Woods Richardson can just tread water in this role, he could stick in the big-league rotation indefinitely, given Minnesota's lack of viable options behind him on the organizational depth chart.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Dominant over six frames

    Woods Richardson (1-0) pitched six innings in a win over the Tigers on Saturday, allowing one run on two hits and one walk while striking out five.

    Woods Richardson cruised to his first win Saturday, going 1-2-3 through the Tigers' lineup in five of the six innings in which he appeared. The only slip-up came in the second, when he allowed a leadoff single and a walk to open the frame, which eventually led to a run coming home for Detroit on a sacrifice fly. It was a very impressive performance in the right-hander's first start of the season, and he certainly made a case to stick around in the big leagues.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Heads back to Triple-A

    The Twins returned Woods Richardson to Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday.

    As expected, Woods Richardson's stay with the Twins was only a temporary one, as he was summoned from St. Paul to serve as the 27th man for Saturday's doubleheader with the Tigers. He started the second game of the twin bill, earning the win while limiting Detroit to one run on two hits and one walk while striking out five over six innings. Woods Richardson should be the Twins' top choice the next time the big club is in need of a spot starter.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Making start during doubleheader

    The Twins will call up Woods Richardson from Triple-A st. Paul to start the second game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Tigers, Robert Murray of reports.

    The right-hander was rocked for seven runs over 3.1 innings in his last start at St. Paul. However, he's on the 40-man roster and will be on five days rest Saturday, so that's why Woods Richardson is getting the nod. He made one extended relief appearance last season with Minnesota, allowing five runs over 4.2 frames.

  • Twins' Simeon Woods Richardson: Optioned to Triple-A

    Minnesota optioned Woods RIchardson to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, Do-Hyoung Park of reports.

    Woods Richardson was unscored upon in three appearances this spring, but he never seemed like a serious candidate for the Opening Day roster. The 23-year-old will be used in St. Paul's rotation at the start of the 2024 season.
