Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-5 with an RBI, stolen base and run scored in Sunday's win over the White Sox.

Every batter in the Twins lineup scored at least once, but none scored more than Nunez. The shortstop actually scored twice in the Twins' nine-run eighth inning. The stolen base was his fifth of the season. He started out hot out of the gate, but the Nunez is batting just .252/.283/.367 and isn't much of an option for fantasy purposes.
Aug 3 - 8:28 PM

Eduardo Nunez went 3-for-5 with a home run, two RBI and three runs scored in the Twins' lopsided 10-2 win over the Royals on Tuesday.

Nunez contributed an RBI single in the fourth inning before launching a solo home run in the sixth. The homer was his third of the year to go with 14 RBI. He also scored the first run of the game. The 27-year-old has been on fire through his first 27 games, posting a .321/.354/.487 line, and with Danny Santana out he'll continue to find regular at-bats in the near term.
Jul 1 - 11:47 PM

Twins activated UTIL Eduardo Nunez from the 15-day disabled list.

Nunez was out for a little over two weeks because of a right hamstring strain. The 27-year-old utilityman is hitting .290/.319/.435 in 25 games with Minnesota.
Jun 30 - 3:17 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) has reported no issues through his first three minor league rehab games and is on track to be activated from the disabled list on Monday.

Nunez, currently on a rehab assignment with Double-A New Britain, has been sidelined since June 15 with a strained right hamstring. In his first 25 games before the injury, he was hitting .290/.319/.435 with two homers and 11 RBI.
Jun 28 - 3:22 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) will start a rehab assignment with Double-A New Britain on Thursday.

Nunez will be eligible to return at the end of the month, and the fact that he's starting a rehab assignment now means he'll likely be activated when first eligible. Nunez was batting .290/.319/.435 in 25 games before the injury.
Jun 25 - 9:58 PM

Twins placed INF Eduardo Nunez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 15, with a right hamstring strain.

The move clears a spot for Thursday's starter, Yohan Pino, on the active roster. Nunez tweaked his hamstring over the weekend and will now get some extended rest.
Jun 19 - 4:29 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) passed pre-game tests Tuesday is available off the bench.

Nunez hasn't played since aggravating his right hamstring injury Saturday, but he's ready to roll now. The infielder is batting .290/.319/.435 over 25 games for the Twins this season.
Jun 17 - 7:50 PM

Eduardo Nunez (hamstring) is not available Monday.

Nunez aggravated his right hamstring Saturday and will now miss his second straight game. He's considered day-to-day.
Jun 16 - 5:05 PM

Eduardo Nunez went 3-for-5 with a home run and two RBI in a loss to the Astros on Sunday.

The Twins got massacred, but not for lack of effort on Nunez' part. The 26-year-old hit his second home run of the season when it was still a game, and he added an RBI single in the seventh inning. He's now hitting .291/.316/.436 in 55 at-bats this year.
Jun 8 - 7:16 PM

Eduardo Nunez went 2-for-4 and drove in the go-ahead run with an RBI single in Sunday's win over the Tigers.

Making his fifth career start in left field, Nunez punctuated the Twins' three-run, eighth-inning rally with a base knock that scored Josmil Pinto. He got thrown out at second base while trying to stretch the hit to a double, but the damage had already been done. Nunez has made three straight starts for the Twins and could churn out some value in AL-only leagues.
May 11 - 4:31 PM

Twins recalled INF Eduardo Nunez from Triple-A Rochester.

Nunez, who was acquired from the Yankees on April 7, is a .261/.310/.370 hitter over his last 341 plate appearances. Even if he finds regular playing time, the 26-year-old is doubtful to hold fantasy relevance.
May 8 - 12:24 PM

Eduardo Nunez (oblique) reported no issues after playing nine innings at shortstop Monday for Triple-A Rochester.

Nunez has been eased back into action after suffering a minor oblique strain at the end of April. He could join the Twins' major league roster in a week or two.
May 6 - 4:53 PM

Eduardo Nunez (oblique) returned to the starting lineup Thursday afternoon at Triple-A Rochester.

Nunez missed three games with a minor oblique strain. He could be added to the major league roster soon.
Apr 24 - 2:46 PM

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Sunday that Eduardo Nunez is nursing a minor oblique strain, but is expected to be promoted to the big league club soon.

Gardenhire noted the team's desire to become more athletic overall, and his versatility would go a long way toward accomplishing that goal. Unless he's receiving consistent at-bats though, his value will lie solely in AL-only leagues.
