Emilio Pagan: The Cleveland Guardians secret weapon against the Minnesota Twins

Another game against the Cleveland Guardians, and another disaster for Minnesota Twins reliever Emilio Pagan. Wednesday’s game between the Guardians and Twins followed a familiar script. Pagan was tasked with preserving the lead and failed spectacularly. He allowed a double and a walk while uncorking a wild pitch, leading to three runs, two earned, as he recorded just one out.

Twins' Emilio Pagan: Moves to restricted list

Pagan (not injury related) was placed on the restricted list Friday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Pagan is apparently unvaccinated and is unable to enter Canada as the Twins take on the Blue Jays for a three-game series this weekend. The 31-year-old should be back with the team for the subsequent series against the Yankees, which begins Tuesday. Rookie Jhoan Duran should operate as Minnesota's top option for save chances in the meantime.

Twins' Emilio Pagan: Picks up one-out save

Pagan struck out the only batter he faced Friday, recording his seventh save of the season in a 10-7 win over the Royals. The Twins were up 10-5 heading into the ninth inning, but after Yennier Cano ran into trouble, Pagan got the call to put out the fire and struck out Nicky Lopez on three pitches. Rookie Jhoan Duran continues to push for ninth-inning work, but Pagan has converted seven of nine save chances on the year with a 2.25 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 22:11 K:BB through 16 innings.

Twins' Emilio Pagan: Notches fifth save

Pagan allowed one hit in a scoreless inning during Sunday's win over the Guardians. He struck out one and earned the save. Pagan gave up a two-out double to Amed Rosario but finished off a scoreless frame with just 10 pitches. The 31-year-old has now converted five out of six save chances with a 1.54 ERA this season. Pagan threw an inning in each of the last three games, so he'll likely be unavailable Monday against Oakland.
