– The Twins have a full 40-player major league roster, and the only catchers are Jason Castro and Mitch Garver. Veteran Chris Gimenez was much admired as Castro's backup in 2017, and yet the front office felt a need to clear a spot that Garver could win in his sixth pro season and at age 27. The Twins were a week into exhibition games on Feb. 28 when Garver strained a knee. He was sent for an MRI, it came back showing no damage and Garver was catching again on March 4.
FORT MYERS, FLA. – Starting pitchers were crossing paths in the Twins clubhouse at Hammond Stadium on Tuesday morning. The present and the future both had short trips to make. Lance Lynn was headed a couple of doors south in the corridor to be formally introduced as the latest and last of a half-dozen significant acquisitions for 2018. Fernando Romero was headed a couple of hundred yards northwest to the minor league complex with four other pitchers.
– The Twins introduced Lance Lynn at a Tuesday morning media session. A couple of hours later, the 30-year-old righthander threw his first exhibition pitches of the spring, hit 94 miles per hour and went three scoreless innings with five strikeouts and one walk against Baltimore.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
