Twins' Bailey Ober: Under consideration for Game 1
Ober is being considered to start Saturday's Game 1 of the ALDS in Houston, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Joe Ryan was going to start a potential AL Wild Card Series Game 3 for the Twins, so he's also a candidate for Game 1 of the ALDS and perhaps the favorite for the start. Kenta Maeda is also in the mix. Ober wasn't even on the AL Wild Card Series roster because the team needed only three starters, but he told Hayes that the Twins "have dropped hints he'll pitch at some point" during the ALDS. Ober posted a 2.08 ERA with 26 strikeouts in 21.2 innings after rejoining the club Sept. 15 following a stint in the minors.... See More ... See Less

The big right-hander was sent to the minors following a midseason swoon, but he returned in September to post a 2.08 ERA with 26 strikeouts in 21.2 innings of work.

Ober ended the year with a strong 3.43 ERA and 146:29 K:BB through 144.1 innings.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Bailey Ober: Blanks Athletics
Ober (8-6) earned the win Tuesday, allowing two hits over five scoreless innings against the Athletics. He struck out eight.

He's now given up exactly two runs in four of his last five starts and has surrendered at least one homer in 10 straight.

Twins' Bailey Ober: Sticking in rotation
Ober will make a start during the team's upcoming series against the Reds in Cincinnati that begins Monday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
In his return to the Minnesota rotation Friday, Ober struck out six and limited the White Sox to two runs over five innings en route to claiming the win. The performance was solid enough to convince the Twins to keep him in the rotation for at least one more turn, with Ober most likely getting the ball Wednesday in Cincinnati if manager Rocco Baldelli elects to keep him on normal rest. Dallas Keuchel has been moved to the bullpen to open up the rotation spot for Ober.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Bailey Ober: Recalled for spot start
Ober was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Friday, Bobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
Ober will make a spot start for the Twins on Friday against the White Sox as the Twins give their regular rotation members a little breather in the final month of the regular season. The right-hander struck out three over five innings of one-run ball in his last start for St. Paul. Ober posted a 2.61 ERA for the Twins in the first half but was demoted after holding a 5.85 ERA in eight starts after the All-Star break.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Bailey Ober: Collects win in return to rotation
Ober (7-6) picked up the win Friday, giving up two runs on five hits over five innings in a 10-2 victory over the White Sox. He struck out six without walking a batter.
Ober tossed 60 of 93 pitches for strikes as he made his first start in the big leagues since Aug. 27 and recorded his first MLB win since July 18, blanking Chicago for four frames until Elvis Andrus tagged him for a two-run homer in the fifth. Ober may have only been making a spot start, but with Dallas Keuchel stumbling to an 8.03 ERA through his first three outings in September, the Twins may elect to keep the right-hander in the rotation for the last couple weeks of the regular season instead....

Twins' Bailey Ober: Could get start Friday
Ober could be recalled from Triple-A St. Paul to start Friday versus the White Sox, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
Pablo Lopez would be available Friday on regular rest, but the Twins look set to use the game as an opportunity to give their regular rotation members some extra recovery time down the stretch. Ober last pitched for St. Paul on Sept. 9, so he would be available on five days' rest Friday.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Bailey Ober: Sent down
Ober was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, Dan Hayes of The Athletic reports.
The Twins have sent Ober to the minor leagues to make room for Kody Funderburk. Ober has struggled in five August starts, posting a 5.63 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with a 25:8 K:BB across 24 innings. The right-hander will be a candidate to rejoin the squad when rosters expand, given his 3.67 ERA through 22 starts (122.2 frames) so far this season.... See More ... See Less
Twins' Bailey Ober: Ineffective Sunday
Ober allowed five runs on five hits and a walk while striking out four over four innings in a no-decision versus the Rangers on Sunday.
Ober's winless streak reached seven outings, and this was the first time in August he failed to complete five innings. He gave up a solo home run to J.P. Martinez and a grand slam to Jonah Heim in the contest, continuing a stretch of eight straight starts in which Ober has allowed a homer. For the season, the right-hander has a 3.67 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 120:26 K:BB through 122.2 innings over 22 starts. He's projected for a road rematch against the Rangers next weekend.... See More ...

Twins' Bailey Ober: Surrenders two hits in no-decision
Ober did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing two runs on two hits and three walks over five innings against the Brewers. He struck out three.
All the damage against Ober came early, with Willy Adames launching a two-run home run in the first inning to mark Ober's seventh consecutive start allowing a long ball, a streak that dates back to the All-Star Break. He also tied his season high in walks and was pulled after 78 pitches despite holding the Brewers to a pair of hits. The outing continued a mildly concerning stretch of brief starts for Ober, who has gone five or fewer frames in five consecutive appearances. He'll likely have a tough time pitching deep in his next start, which is tentatively scheduled to come against the Rangers.... See More ... See Less

Twins' Bailey Ober: Rocked by Royals
Ober (6-5) took the loss Saturday, surrendering six runs on 11 hits over four innings as the Twins were downed 10-7 by the Royals. He struck out five without walking a batter.
The right-hander was maybe catching a bit too much of the plate in this one, as homers by Bobby Witt in the first inning and Michael Massey in the second helped dig an early hole. Ober hadn't given up more than four runs in a start all season coming into Saturday, but keeping the ball in the park is becoming an issue, as 10 of the 13 home runs he's served up have come in his last nine starts -- a stretch in which he has a 3.96 ERA despite a strong 1.11 WHIP and 55:7 K:BB through 52.1 innings. He'll look to bounce back in his next outing, likely to come at home next weekend against Arizona.... See More ... See Less
