|Thursday, September 9th, 2027: SP Boggs Signs Extension with Minnesota|
The latest out of Minnesota indicates that Rob Boggs has re-signed with the Twins and that the 29-year-old starting pitcher is set to earn $8,975,000 over a 3-year span.

|Sunday, July 25th, 2027: Solarte Smashes 300-th Homer|
Minnesota's outstanding third baseman Yangervis Solarte joined the 300 Club today at Hubert H Humphrey Metrodome with a booming blast in the Twins win over the Tigers. They topped Detroit 12-10.
On his milestone day Solarte had 1 hit in 3 at-bats with 5 RBI and 1 run scored.
Tongue-in-cheek he told the press, "Don't tell me when I get close to the next milestone. Just tell me after I reach it. It will be easier to hit that way."
His all-time numbers show Solarte is carrying a .263 career batting average with 300 home runs and 912 RBIs.
