MINNEAPOLIS — Robbie Grossman is likely headed to the disabled list after he left Thursday’s second game with a broken left thumb. Grossman started the game in right field and collided with Byron Buxton as Buxton caught a fly ball in right-center field. Grossman singled in his first at-bat, but was lifted when his turn came up the second time around, replaced in right field and the batting order by Max Kepler. The Twins have not given a timeline for Grossman’s recovery.
Aaron Slegers will make his MLB debut for the pitching-needy Twins as part of a day-night split doubleheader Thursday against the Indians. His start will bump back J.O. Berrios to the weekend series against the Diamondbacks. So in a pivotal spot against the division-leading Indians, the Twins are turning to Kyle Gibson and a rookie making his MLB debut. That’s a pretty big test for your first big-league assignment.
The Twins have experienced the swing of emotions in the past couple weeks. At the non-waiver trade deadline, the front office bosses decided that this season wasn’t worth investing more assets into, and hey, while they were at it, they might as well cash in pending free agents for some pitching prospects that might prove useful down the line. From where I sit, it’s hard to disagree with the logic of the decision. But you could understand why there’d be disappointment inside the clubhouse.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
