  • Twins Activate Max Kepler From IL

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler (right fifth toe fracture) has been activated from the 10-day injured list, according to an announcement from the club. In a corresponding move, outfielder Mark Contreras was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul. Kepler has looked solid in his age-29 season, slashing .244/.344/.390 with nine homers, 39 RBI, a 12.2 BB%, and 14.5 K%. He offers upside both at the plate and in the field, amassing 4.6 oWAR and 3.6 dWAR through 85 games. He should be rostered in most fantasy leagues going forward.

  • Max Kepler Could Return This Weekend

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler (toe), who is dealing with a fractured right fifth toe, said he's been running, hitting and throwing and felt fine after doing outfield work on Wednesday. He said he'll be back "soon." Skipper Rocco Baldelli said it's "possible" that Kepler is activated from the 10-day injured list this weekend. The 29-year-old is eligible to return on Saturday. Once he's back with Minnesota, Kepler should return to being a lineup regular in the outfield. Before his injury, he was slashing .244/.344/.390 with nine home runs, 39 RBI, 41 runs scored and two stolen bases in 337 plate appearances over 85 games in Minnesota. Kepler had played in just two games after the All-Star break before going on the IL.

  • Max Kepler, Miguel Sano Head To IL

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler (toe) and first baseman Miguel Sano (knee) were placed on the 10-day IL Saturday. Kepler had missed the last three games with a toe injury that is now known to be a fractured right pinkie toe. After a hot start at the dish, he has cooled down with just four homers and an OPS below .700 since May 1. Sano had played in just three games since returning from surgery to repair his left knee meniscus, and it's that same knee that is causing him to head back to the IL. Neither player needs to be held onto in any fantasy format. Alex Kirilloff and Gilberto Celestino will likely cover for Kepler in right field, while Luis Arraez and Jose Miranda will take turns playing first in Sano's absence.

  • Max Kepler Still Out Against Padres

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler (toe) remains out of the starting lineup on Friday against the San Diego Padres. Kepler will miss his third straight game while dealing with a displaced fracture in his right pinkie toe. For now, he's being considered day-to-day, but fantasy managers shouldn't be shocked if the Twins eventually put him on the injured list. On the season, the 29-year-old German left-handed hitter is batting .244/.344/.390 with nine home runs, 39 RBI, 41 runs scored and two stolen bases in 287 at-bats. Gilberto Celestino is starting in right field and is batting ninth on Friday against Padres left-hander Blake Snell. Celestino is 1-for-6 in four games over the last two weeks and is still searching for his first home run of the season. Avoid him in DFS.

  • Max Kepler Day-To-Day With Fractured Toe

    Updating a previous report, Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler (toe) has been diagnosed with a mildly displaced fracture of his pinky toe. According to Twins reporter Do-Hyoung Park, the injury isn't quite as bad as it sounds and Kepler is being considered day-to-day. The fracture isn't on a weight-bearing part of his foot, so he may be able to play through the injury and avoid the injured list. Park reports that the Twins are going to test Kepler out over the coming days to see if he can indeed avoid a stint on the injured list.

  • Max Kepler Being Held Out On Tuesday

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler (toe) is being held out of the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. Alex Kirilloff is shifting over to cover Kepler's usual right field post while Miguel Sano (knee) is entering the starting lineup following his activation from the injured list. Kepler was hit by a pitch in his left foot during this past Sunday's game against the Detroit Tigers. He exited the game after the incident. The team hasn't released any notable updates on his status the past few days and he should be considered day-to-day for now.

  • Max Kepler Exits After Being Hit By Pitch Sunday

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler (foot) was hit in his left foot by a pitch during Sunday's game against the Detroit Tigers. He was removed from the game after the incident as Gilberto Celestino came on to pinch run for him. Kepler grounded into a fielder's choice during his first and only other at-bat on Sunday. He earned an RBI during the play and eventually scored later on in the inning. Through 84 games on the year, the 29-year-old owns a .244/.344/.390 slash line to go along with nine home runs.

  • Max Kepler Exits With Potential Leg Injury Tuesday

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler (leg) was removed from Tuesday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers. He fouled a ball off his leg during his at-bat in the sixth inning. He wound up finishing off the at-bat, but he was replaced in the field by Gilberto Celestino the following inning. The team has yet to provide an update on Kepler's status, but we should know more soon. The 29-year-old owns a .242/.346/.396 slash line on the year to go along with nine home runs, 37 RBI and 37 runs.

  • Max Kepler, Emilio Pagan Activated From Restricted List

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler and relief pitchers Emilio Pagan, Caleb Thielbar and Trevor Megill have been activated from the restricted list on Monday. In corresponding moves, Jharel Cotton, Mark Contreras and Ian Hamilton were optioned to Triple-A St. Paul. Kepler, Pagan, Thielbar and Megill weren't able to play in the weekend series in Toronto against the Blue Jays because they aren't vaccinated against COVID-19. Pagan should return to the save's mix for the Twins despite converting only one of his last three save chances. Kepler should be back in the team's starting lineup on Tuesday against New York Yankees right-hander Jameson Taillon after their off day on Monday.

  • Max Kepler, Emilio Pagan Land On Restricted List

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler and relief pitcher Emilio Pagan have been placed on the restricted list. The Twins have a series in Toronto, so they will presumably be without these players because they're unvaccinated. Kepler just returned to action last week due to a quad issue, so fantasy managers will be without him again for a few days. The bigger hit to the roster is losing Pagan for this series. Jhoan Duran could be asked to make an appearance or two in the ninth without Pagan available. Fantasy managers should have Duran on their radar this weekend.

  • Max Kepler Exits Game Early, Will Have MRI

    Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler was removed from Saturday's game in the 5th inning with tightness in his right leg. Kepler took two at-bats, going 0-for-2 with a strikeout, before being taken out of right field. After the game, manager Rocco Baldelli said that Kepler would get an MRI and it "could go either way" regarding a possible IL stint. The lefty is having a great start to his campaign, slashing .250/.357/.431 with 6 home runs coming into Saturday, so hopefully this is only a minor setback. Consider Kepler day-to-day for now.
