Darin Mastroianni blasted a two-run homer off Chris Sale in Saturday's loss to the White Sox.
He was recalled from Triple-A Buffalo earlier in the day to give the team another right-handed bat, which paid huge dividends against southpaw Chris Sale on Saturday. It was his lone hit in three at-bats on the day though, and he still owns an .063/.118/.250 slash line on the season. Jun 28 - 4:38 PM

Blue Jays recalled OF Darin Mastroianni from Triple-A Buffalo.

The 28-year-old speedster was hitting .279/.364/.398 with four homers, 16 RBI and 15 stolen bases through 56 games at Buffalo. He's worth the gamble for those desperate for speed in AL-only formats.

Blue Jays claimed OF Darin Mastroianni off waivers from the Twins; optioned him to Triple-A Buffalo.

Apr 22 - 3:31 PM

Apr 20 - 1:56 PM

Twins purchased the contract of OF Darin Mastroianni from Triple-A Rochester.

Oswaldo Arcia was placed on the disabled list in a corresponding 25-man roster move with lingering inflammation in his wrist. Mastroianni is a .230/.298/.309 career hitter in the majors. He's not fantasy-relevant.
Apr 9 - 5:13 PM

Twins sent OF Darin Mastroianni outright to Triple-A Rochester.

The move clears a spot on the 40-man roster. Mastroianni showed some ability in 2012, but he was limited to just 30 games with the Twins this year due to ankle surgery.

Darin Mastroianni went 3-for-6 with three RBI against the Astros on Tuesday.

The 28-year-old enjoyed his best offensive night since coming off the disabled list -- and best of the season, as it were -- with his three hits and three RBI. The big hit came in the 12th inning, as Mastroianni doubled in two runs to give the Twins a three-run lead. All four of his runs batted in this season have come in his last two games.

Twins recalled OF Darin Mastroianni from Triple-A Rochester.

Mastroianni has been limited to just eight games in the majors this season due to ankle surgery. He should see some playing time in center field against lefties, and his speed makes him worth a roster spot in deep AL-only formats.

Twins activated OF Darin Mastroianni from the 60-day disabled list; optioned him to Triple-A Rochester.

Darin Mastroianni (ankle) was removed from his rehab game at Triple-A Rochester Wednesday.

Mastroianni's foot came off first base awkwardly after he beat out a double play. He was able to walk off on his own, which hopefully means the injury isn't a huge setback. Mastroianni initially hurt his ankle on March 25 and has been working back ever since.
Wed, Aug 7, 2013 08:42:00 PM

Darin Mastroianni's (ankle) rehab assignment has moved to Triple-A Rochester.

He's batting second and playing center field for the Red Wings on Wednesday. Mastroianni could potentially return to the Twins this month. He'll function as a reserve outfielder in the Twin Cities whenever he's activated.
