When asked if Ryan Pressly could push Brandon Kintzler for the closer role, Twins manager Paul Molitor said, "I'm not going there yet."
Pressly has been a steady presence in the Twins' pen, recording a 3.35 ERA over his last three seasons. The hard-throwing right-hander has the look of a late-inning enforcer but for now, Molitor is sticking with Kintzler in the ninth inning. Veteran Glen Perkins could force his way into the closer discussion as the year progresses, but he's still on the mend after undergoing shoulder surgery last season. Mar 11 - 5:17 PM

Ryan Pressly earned his first career save Sunday in the Twins' win over the White Sox.

Brandon Kintzler had worked three days in a row (and blew a save on Saturday) so Pressly got the ninth-inning call in this one. The right-hander gave up a two-out double to Melky Cabrera but whiffed Justin Morneau to end it. Pressly has a 3.67 ERA and 50/19 K/BB ratio in 54 innings this season for Minnesota.

Ryan Pressly pitched well in relief during Sunday's 16-inning, 6-5 loss to the Nationals, striking out four over two scoreless innings.

Twins starter Tyler Duffey was hit by a comebacker to the right shoulder early in the contest and was forced to exit after four-plus innings. It would be up to the bullpen from that point on. After a scoreless inning from Casey Fien, Pressly came on to pitch two run-free innings of his own. He allowed two hits in the process. The 27-year-old right-hander holds a 2.77 ERA and 12/6 K/BB ratio over 13 innings. He doesn't see enough high-leverage work to make for much fantasy help.

Ryan Pressly (lat) won't be limited in spring training.

Pressly missed the entire second half with a strained lat. He resumed throwing in December and has already arrived at the Twins' spring training facility in Fort Myers. "After getting shut down, the main goal was just getting into the offseason healthy," said Pressly. "But the lat is feeling really good, so if I can come back and still be in the upper 90s, that'd be nice." He'll be battling for a job in the Twins' bullpen.
