Notes:

  • Still no Span, and also no Revere (you may remember him turning his ankle trying to beat out a throw to first on Wednesday).
  • The Twins have re-upped with their AAA affiliate in Rochester for two more years. As noted by KSTP's Chris Long, no decision has been made on Class A Beloit. Is my friend Brad's one-man crusade to make the St. Paul Saints the Twins single-A club working?
  • How will Brian Dozier make it back to Target Field? He'll have to earn it. Nice piece from LaVelle. Bonus: Gardy says "get after it" twice.

Enjoy the game, everybody.
