Twins pitching prospect Kohl Stewart tossed seven strong innings Saturday in a win for High-A Fort Myers.

He allowed four hits and one run, striking out four with no walks. It was Stewart's first win pitching in the Florida State League. Saturday was actually his first win at any level since July 17. Stewart missed three weeks earlier this season with right elbow inflammation but didn't look any worse for the wear on Saturday. He's No. 34 on MLB.com's list of the top 100 prospects.

An MRI on Twins pitching prospect Kohl Stewart's right elbow came back negative.

Stewart will begin a throwing program soon after being shut down for nearly a week. The 20-year-old holds a 3.10 ERA with 10 strikeouts over 20 1/3 innings for High-A Fort Myers this season.

Twins pitching prospect Kohl Stewart has been placed on High-A Fort Myers' disabled list due to right elbow inflammation.

Twins director of minor league operations Brad Steil wouldn't say if Stewart would be seen by a specialist or undergo an MRI. "We know he will miss his next start," Steil said. "We don’t know how he will feel in six days when he is due to come off the DL." Stewart is ranked as a top-50 prospect by some, but he had shoulder issues last season and now has elbow trouble. The 20-year-old was the No. 4 overall pick in the 2013 Draft.
Apr 24 - 8:46 AM

Twins prospect right-hander Kohl Stewart says his shoulder is now 100 percent and that it has "never been as strong as it is right now."

Stewart posted a 2.59 ERA with a 62/24 K/BB ratio in 87 across 19 starts with Low-A Cedar Rapids last season, but he was bothered by a shoulder issue during the second half. Fortunately, he's feeling much better after getting some time to rest. Selected No. 4 overall in 2013, the 20-year-old still needs to build up his innings and is likely a couple of years away, but he has the potential to be an impact starter in the majors.

Twins pitching prospect Kohl Stewart left his outing with Low-A Cedar Rapids on Tuesday with more shoulder soreness.

"I felt like (crap), tried to pitch through it," Stewart said. Last year's No. 4 overall pick was making just his second start since returning from the disabled list due to shoulder issues. The Twins will almost surely shut him down for the season now. They just have to hope his shoulder is structurally sound.

An MRI on Twins pitching prospect Kohl Stewart's right shoulder came back clean.

Stewart has an impingement, but it appears he's avoided a serious injury. While it certainly qualifies as good news, they seem likely to shut last year's No. 4 overall pick down for the season. Stewart holds a 2.42 ERA through 81 2/3 innings of work at the minor league level this season.

Twins pitching prospect Kohl Stewart has been placed on Low-A Cedar Rapids' disabled list due to a right shoulder impingement.

Stewart dealt with a shoulder issue toward the end of last season and is having problems again, though the Twins at this point don't appear to be overly concerned. The No. 4 overall pick in last year's draft, Stewart owns a 2.42 ERA through 81 2/3 innings of work at the minor league level this season.

Twins prospect RHP Kohl Stewart was scratched from his scheduled start at Low-A Cedar Rapids on Wednesday due to shoulder soreness.

Twins director of minor league operations Brad Steil said Stewart is dealing with "a little shoulder soreness," an affliction he dealt with toward the end of the 2013 season as well. It's not a huge cause for concern for the No. 4 overall pick in 2013, and he should be back on the mound sooner than later. Stewart owns a 2.42 ERA through 81 2/3 innings of work at the minor league level this season.

Twins prospect RHP Kohl Stewart scattered four hits over five scoreless innings Thursday, striking out three batters without issuing a walk for Low-A Cedar Rapids.

The No. 4 overall pick in the 2013 draft, Stewart has impressed this year in his full-season debut, with a 2.42 ERA, .230 opponents' batting average and 58-23 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 81 2/3 innings for Cedar Rapids. The 19-year-old hasn't allowed more than two earned runs in a game over his last eight starts, and he owns a 1.86 ERA and 26-8 strikeout-to-walk ratio during that span. Though he hasn't missed as many bats as expected, Stewart has been difficult to barrel (.599 opponents' OPS) and he's consistently kept the ball on the ground (1.81 GO/AO).

Twins right-handed pitching prospect Kohl Stewart scattered six hits, while allowing one run and striking out five batters for Low-A Cedar Rapids on Friday.

The Twins have held back the reins on Stewart this season, but he has performed very well, putting up a 2.58 ERA and a 1.148 WHIP as a 19-year old in a league where the average player is 22.

Twins prospect right-hander Kohl Stewart allowed five runs (one earned) over 2 2/3 innings for Low-A Cedar Rapids on Saturday.

Stewart allowed four hits, including a home run and a double, and hit a batter while striking out three batters. Stewart has the potential to be a frontline starter, but this is the point in the season where many prospects who are in their first full professional season begin to wear down. He has thrown 70 2/3 innings, which is likely more than he has thrown in his life, so it will be interesting to see how the Twins handle his workload going forward. He has already skipped a few starts so it will be likely that his workload will be lessened as the season progresses.

Twins right-handed pitching prospect Kohl Stewart struck out four and allowed two runs on six hits over five innings for Low-A Cedar Rapids on Wednesday.

Stewart has been solid but not spectacular in his first full professional season, holding opposing batters to a .220/.297/.280 line with a 2.53 ERA and a 1.125 WHIP while striking out 6.3 batters per nine innings. Stewart was the fourth overall pick in the 2013 draft and projects as a top-of-the-rotation stalwart.

Twins right-handed pitching prospect Kohl Stewart struck out six, allowing only one hit, one walk, two hit batsmen, and one (unearned) run in six innings for Low-A Cedar Rapids on Friday.

Stewart also picked up his first professional win in his 11th professional start. The Houston, Texas native won't turn 20 until after the season, so if he continues to shine in the Midwest League (3.15 ERA, 0.750 WHIP), he could spend time in High-A before his 20th birthday. Stewart has the potential to pair a mid-90s fastball with a biting slider, milking in above-average curve balls and change-ups to be the top of the rotation ace that the Twins have lacked since they traded Johan Santana prior to the 2008 season.

Twins prospect RHP Kohl Stewart allowed two runs on two hits with a walk and two strikeouts on Sunday in his debut for Low-A Cedar Rapids.

Stewart, the No. 4 overall pick in the 2013 draft, spent his professional debut last summer between a pair of Rookie levels, positing a 1.35 ERA and 24/4 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 20 innings. The Twins won't rush the 19-year-old up the ladder this year, but the consensus is he has the stuff and makeup to move quickly.
