Twins relief pitcher Juan Minaya did not allow a hit while walking one in one inning pitched in the Twins' 3-1 loss to the Braves.
Minaya will mainly be used out of the Minnesota bullpen this season. The veteran reliever posted a 2.48 earned run average and .189 opposing batting average in 40.0 innings pitched last season.
Juan Minaya recorded his first save of the season on Saturday, helping secure a 2-0 victory over Baltimore.
It was Minaya's first save of 2018 and his 10th of his MLB career. More importantly, he's rattled off six straight scoreless outings, and hasn't allowed a run in 8 1/3 innings in September.
Juan Minaya fired a scoreless pair off innings and recorded his second win of the season.
Minaya has struck out 11 batters over seven scoreless innings thus far in September. It's allowed his ERA to drop from 4.08 to 3.48. He's only had a couple of save opportunities all season, but if he keeps pitching like this, he may find himself getting a few more.
Juan Minaya struck out two over 1 1/3 innings on Sunday, holding the Angels to one hit.
In five innings this month, Minaya has yet to yield a run. He has nine strikeouts and a walk over that span. His ERA is higher than fantasy owners would like, but he has been providing solid ratios out of the bullpen lately.
Juan Minaya pitched an effective two innings on Monday against the Twins.
He faced three batters in the seventh and struck out all three. He then fanned Eddie Rosario to start the eighth, retired Jorge Polanco, then whiffed Miguel Sano. Those five Ks in one appearance set a new career-high for Minaya. He's had a tough season, but outings like this show his potential. He could be a guy to keep an eye on for future years.
