The Twins entered and off day Thursday at 48-46, a half-game out of first place in the Aerican League Central, with clear needs in the bullpen and starting rotation. It appears they might be close to boosting their rotation. The Twins are “close” to adding Braves starter Jaime Garcia in a trade, according to a report from Ken Rosenthal on Twitter. Garcia, 31, is a lefty that is most known for his days spent with the Cardinals.
The Twins are 48-46, currently a half-game out of a wild card spot in the American League. That’s one game ahead of the Seattle Mariners (48-48), as of this writing. The Twins bullpen has some bad numbers this year. The Twins bullpen has two guys who’ve been reliable all season and have very good numbers to show for it. The Twins bullpen could use another late-inning, high-leverage reliever. All of these statements are true.
MINNEAPOLIS – Phil Hughes had surgery last year to relieve the symptoms from Thoracic Outlet Syndrome. Doctors removed a part of one of his ribs, with the hope that bringing down the pressure in that area would allow him to pitch pain-free. Maybe even regain some of the lost velocity from previous seasons. Now, he might need surgery again. And his 2017 season is almost certainly over. The Twins on Tuesday put Hughes on the 60-day disabled list.
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".
