Joe Ryan


How Did we get him?

Ryan was part of the Nelson Cruz trade. He was acquired at the trade deadline in 2021 and was seen as a young pitcher with lots of potential.

How is he doing?

Joe Ryan has started blazing hot. With a 3-1 record and a 1.17 ERA through April, Ryan had given up 3 runs off 10 hits in his 4 starts and has 25 strikeouts. Opponents are batting .132 against Ryan.

What is his role?

If Ryan continues his performance. He will continue on to be a franchise pitcher. He is doing better than Jose Berrios ever did and he is only a rookie. He should be 1st in the rotation and continue to lead this amazing Twins pitching staff.
