Twins' Joe Ryan: Will start Game 4 of ALDS
Ryan will get the start in Game 4 of the ALDS on Wednesday versus the Astros, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Ryan has not yet pitched in the 2023 postseason, though he was lined up to start a potential Game 3 of the AL Wild Card Series before the Twins finished off a two-game sweep of the Blue Jays. The 27-year-old right-hander registered an underwhelming 4.51 ERA in 29 regular-season starts, but he showed improved swing-and-miss stuff and excellent command while tallying 197 strikeouts with only 34 walks across 161.2 innings....

Twins' Joe Ryan: Would start potential Game 3
Ryan will start Game 3 of the AL Wild Card Series versus the Blue Jays on Thursday, if necessary, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Ryan had been lined up for the start, so this doesn't come as a surprise. The Twins hope they can save him for the ALDS, of course, which they would be able to do if they are able to eliminate Toronto with a Game 2 victory. Ryan boasted a 197:34 K:BB over 161.2 innings during the regular season, but his 4.51 ERA points to the inconsistency he dealt with.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Joe Ryan: Struggles through five frames
Ryan did not factor into the decision Friday, allowing six runs on eight hits and one walk over five innings against the Rockies. He struck out six.
Ryan allowed three homers on the night, bringing his season total to 32 -- more than all but four other pitchers. The right-hander finishes the regular season with a 4.51 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 197 strikeouts in 161.2 innings, but over his past five outings, he holds an ERA of 6.20 and a WHIP of 1.46. His next start will likely come in the wild-card round, as the Twins look to break an 18-game playoff losing skid that dates back to Oct. 5, 2004.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Joe Ryan: Strikes out 10 in win
Ryan (11-10) got the win over the Angels on Sunday, allowing three runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out 10 over six innings.
Ryan struck out double-digit batters for the sixth time this season and for the first time since July 21. The seven hits were the most he's allowed since Aug. 2, but he displayed excellent command after walking multiple batters in each of his last two starts. Ryan's inconsistencies have left a question mark for the Twins' third rotation spot for the playoffs; however, Sunday's outing likely put him as the front runner to man the role behind Sonny Gray and Pablo Lopez. Ryan now owns a 4.31 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 191:33 K:BB in 156.2 innings and lines up for one final start against the Rockies.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Joe Ryan: Struggles in loss
Ryan (10-10) took the loss Monday against the Reds, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks over five innings. He struck out five.
Ryan pitched Monday in what was easily his worst start of five since returning from a groin injury Aug. 26. He struggled a bit with his command as the three walks issued matched his season high. The 27-year-old has pitched to a 4.30 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 181:33 K:BB over 150.2 innings. Ryan looks to return to form in his next start, scheduled to be against the Angels at home.... See More ...

Twins' Joe Ryan: Another brief start
Ryan did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two runs on five hits and two walks over 4.2 innings against the Rays. He struck out seven.
After lasting just four innings last time out, Ryan got yanked after 4.2 frames Tuesday at 102 pitches. His struggles with the long ball also continued, as he allowed a Rene Pinto solo homer in the fifth frame, the 20th round tripper Ryan has surrendered in his last 52 innings (11 starts). Over that span, the 27-year-old owns a 6.40 ERA and a 76:15 K:BB. He's next expected to toe the rubber against the White Sox in Chicago on Sunday.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Joe Ryan: Lasts just four innings in loss
Ryan (10-9) took the loss Wednesday, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk over four innings against Cleveland. He struck out three.
The 27-year-old allowed only two runs on the afternoon but needed 89 pitches to get through four innings as the right-hander was replaced by Louie Varland to open the fifth. Ryan has now failed to make it through five frames in three of his last five starts, though he's allowed two or fewer runs in three straight. Ryan has also lost five of his last seven decisions (spanning 10 starts), surrendering at least four runs in five of those outings.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Joe Ryan: Fans seven in win
Ryan (10-8) allowed one run on three hits across six innings Friday, striking out seven and earning a win over Texas.
Aside from Corey Seager's solo homer in the fourth inning, Ryan was nearly untouchable in Friday's victory. It was his first appearance without walking a batter since June 27 and the first time he completed six innings since July 26. Despite the strong outing, he threw a season-low 74 pitches, though he still managed to force 14 whiffs. Ryan lowered his season ERA to 4.20 with a 166:27 K:BB through 24 starts. He's currently lined up to start in Cleveland next week.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Joe Ryan: Sharp in return
Ryan (groin) allowed one run on five hits and two walks while striking out seven over five innings in a no-decision versus the Rangers on Saturday.
Ryan missed just over three weeks with a groin strain, but he looked solid in his return. He threw 51 of 80 pitches for strikes, suggesting he may not have much of a workload restriction, if any, going forward. He struggled prior to the injury, but he's at a passable 4.33 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 159:27 K:BB through 131 innings over 23 starts for the year. Ryan is projected for a rematch with the Rangers in Texas next week.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Joe Ryan: Activated ahead of start
Ryan (groin) was activated off the 15-day injured list Saturday ahead of his scheduled start against the Rangers.
Ryan wound up missing most of the month of August while recovering from a groin strain, but he's ready to go after striking out seven and allowing just one run on one hit and a pair of walks in a four-inning rehab start last Sunday. Prior to the injury, Ryan struggled to an 8.63 ERA and 1.79 WHIP over his last seven starts, a far cry from the 2.98 ERA and 0.91 WHIP he managed across his first 15 outings. Jordan Balazovic was optioned to clear space for Ryan's return.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Joe Ryan: Confirmed for return Saturday
Ryan (groin) will return from the 15-day injured list to start Saturday versus the Rangers, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Ryan has been given the official go-ahead to rejoin the Twins' rotation after throwing 71 pitches and striking out seven batters over four innings of one-run ball in his lone minor-league rehab start last Friday with Triple-A St. Paul. The 27-year-old right-hander landed on the injured list Aug. 3 due to a left groin strain.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Joe Ryan: Likely to return Saturday
Ryan (groin) is likely to return from the 15-day injured list to start Saturday against the Rangers, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Ryan showed well in a minor-league rehab start last Friday with Triple-A St. Paul, tallying seven strikeouts while allowing only one hit -- a solo homer -- across four innings of work. He threw 71 pitches in that outing, so there shouldn't be too much of a limit on his workload as he returns to the fold for Minnesota. The 27-year-old right-hander has been on the IL since Aug. 3 because of a left groin strain.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Joe Ryan: Looks good in rehab start
Ryan (groin) allowed one run on one hit and two walks over four innings while striking out seven in his first rehab start with Triple-A St. Paul on Thursday, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Ryan induced 12 whiffs on 28 swings and threw 71 pitches on the night. That sort of workload would seem to be enough for Ryan to make his next start with the Twins rather than in the minors, if that's the direction the big club wants to go. Ryan has been on the 15-day injured list since early August with a left groin strain.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Joe Ryan: Cleared for rehab assignment
Ryan (groin) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul on Friday, Darren Wolfson of Channel 5 Saint Paul reports.
Ryan tossed a bullpen session Tuesday and came out of it with no concerns, clearing the way for his return to game action. It's not clear how long a rehab stint he will need before being activated, but since he's been out for only about two weeks it's not likely to be a long one. He could rejoin the Twins' rotation next week in Milwaukee or back at home versus the Rangers.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Joe Ryan: Throws bullpen, assignment coming
Ryan (groin) threw a bullpen session Tuesday and is expected to embark on a rehab assignment within the next few days, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Ryan's session reportedly went well, and the start date of his rehab assignment will depend on how he's feeling Wednesday. The Twins haven't indicated how long they plan on keeping Ryan on assignment, but a multiple-start trip would keep him out until at least late August.... See More ... See Less
