Twins’ Rule 5 pitcher Tyler Kinley tries to apply game lessons
NEW YORK Tyler Kinleys summer internship is going quite well, thanks for asking, and he sees a big payoff ahead from all the on-the-job training he is receiving.
NEW YORK Its been a season full of surprises for Ryan LaMarre, starting with beating the odds to make the Twins roster, followed by his hot streak to start the season, and interrupted by an out-of-the-blue, if brief, demotion to the minors. It just got weirder Monday night.
NEW YORK This time, it might not be Yankee Stadium, or the pinstriped action heroes who play here. This time, it might just be the Twins.

FORT MYERS, Fla. (AP) — Tyler Kinley started spring training knowing he had a tough task to make Minnesota's roster.
The 27-year-old right-handed reliever has been throwing hard to try to fulfill his goal of making the major leagues, and that happens to be his greatest asset.
Because Kinley was selected from Miami in the winter meeting draft, he must be offered back to the Marlins if the Twins don't keep him in the majors.
Rule 5 pick Tyler Kinley makes bid to stick with Twins
FORT MYERS, FLA. Twins manager Paul Molitor referred to relief pitcher Tyler Kinley by his nickname.
Were going to keep evaluating T.K, the best we can, Molitor said. We talked about trying to get him longer stints and get him up in the game a little earlier, some of the things you want to see here if we get an opportunity.
Pitching coach Garvin Alston is not yet that comfortable with the rookie righthander.
I said it once or twice, Alston said with a slight grimace. Im going with Kinz for now.
