⚾ José Miranda’s Shoulder Says ‘Nah, I’m Good’, Twins Send Up Matt Wallner From Triple-A 🚀
TL;DR: The Minnesota Twins have declared a shoulder timeout 🚦 for their third baseman José Miranda, ushering him onto the 10-day injured list due to a right shoulder impingement. But every cloud has a silver lining ☁️🌈 – Matt Wallner, top prospect, has been recalled from Triple-A St. Paul to fill in. The Twins are definitely trying to turn the beat around after their recent plays.
Buckle up, folks! Minnesota Twins’ hotshot third baseman José Miranda is taking a pit stop due to an irksome right shoulder impingement. 🚧 Now, isn’t that a bummer? We’ve all seen him hit .211 with four doubles, three home runs, and 13 RBIs this season. His last play was Wednesday, and in case you’re keeping track, the injured list move is retroactive to that. Is it me, or does anyone else miss the sight of Miranda waiting for that pitch already?
So, who’s stepping in to fill those cleats? Enter Matt Wallner! 🎉 Triple-A St. Paul’s shining beacon who’s been turning heads with a .368 average, a home run, and four RBIs in just 11 games. This marks Wallner’s third rendezvous with the Twins this season. The guy had a whopping .423 average with three home runs and RBIs in his first six games back at St. Paul after being optioned to the minors on May 29. Not too shabby, huh?
As we sit here scrolling through stats 📊, Wallner is out there boasting a .308 average with 11 doubles, seven homers, and 31 RBIs in 36 games at Triple-A this season. To quote the man himself, “I just feel like I’ve been consistent since I left,” Wallner noted. “I’ve hit the ball well. The biggest thing is that I’ve put the ball in play more than I ever have, so I feel good about that part.” Can you hear that? That’s the sound of self-confidence and we’re all here for it.
However, we can’t help but wonder, is Wallner’s recall a band-aid solution for the Twins, or is this the start of a new era in their lineup? 💭 I mean, Wallner’s stats definitely paint a picture of a promising prospect, but how will he perform under the major league pressure?
Okay, enough with the speculation, let’s move to you folks – Do you think Matt Wallner has what it takes to step into the cleats of the sidelined José Miranda? And how does this move affect the Twins’ season? 🤔 Sound off in the comments!
