Trying to figure out a solution for struggling pitcher Nick Blackburn, the Twins are reportedly weighing options for the righthander, including a trip to Class AAA Rochester, having him skip a start or moving him to the bullpen. Blackburn, who hasn't won since June 22, lost to the Seattle Mariners Friday night to drop his record to 4-9.
Francisco Liriano, Scott Baker and Nick Blackburn have seen their ups and downs with the Twins. The Pioneer Press caught up with the three pitchers to talk about what has held them back over the last few years.
Injuries were a major problem for the Twins in 2011. That's why the news that Scott Baker and Nick Blackburn are healthy is a step in the right direction for the 2012 Twins. Blackburn says if everyone can stay healthy, the upcoming season "should be a different story."
Scott Baker missed the majority of the final two months last season because of elbow problems, and he missed his scheduled start Thursday because of another sore elbow. Twins GM Terry Ryan says this is a "standard thing that happens to him every spring." Baker is scheduled to throw a bullpen session on Saturday.
Nick Blackburn threw another bullpen session Friday and felt great afterward. That means the right-hander will likely rejoin the Twins’ rotation on Tuesday. If he does it will likely push Anthony Swarzak back into the bullpen. Swarzak was roughed up by the Yankees Thursday night.
The disabled list behind him, Nick Blackburn returns to the Twins starting rotation tonight in Kansas City. Blackburn is coming back from a quad injury. He tells the Pioneer Press he’s confident and ready to start. While Blackburn was sharp in spring training, he’s had a rough year so far, compiling a 1-4 record over seven starts.
