Twins vs. Indians: News and Notes

Hannah Foslien

Only seven more chances to see the Indians at Target Field this year!

Probables

  • Monday, 7:10pm, FSN: Andrew Albers vs. Danny Salazar
  • Tuesday, 7:10pm, FSN: Samuel Deduno vs. Zach McAllister
  • Wednesday, 12:10pm, NO TV: Kyle Gibson vs. Carlos Carrasco

Indians Notes

  • One week ago, Cleveland had a lot of hope. They'd won ten of eleven, they were three games back of the Tigers, with four games in Cleveland coming up with Detroit. A sweep would have seen them into first place in the AL Central. Instead, Detroit won all four, and Cleveland went out and lost two more to the Angels for good measure, and now they're seven back and the division race is more or less over. A week ago, they were in the second wild-card spot; now they're four back, even though Tampa has lost five straight. It's all going wrong in Cleveland.
  • Carrasco, who's now scheduled to start Wednesday, was brought up on Friday in case the Indians' terrible bullpen had to pitch again.

Twins Notes

  • Darin Mastroianni is eligible to come off the disabled list on Thursday, except that he's yet to get a hit at Rochester during his rehab assignment. This hasn't stopped the Twins from calling guys up before - see Hicks, Aaron - but it'd be a slightly confusing decision if they decide to not let him get back on track first.
  • Every one of the Twins' 19 runs in Chicago scored thanks to a home run. I'm fairly confident that this hasn't happened for the Twins since pretty much ever.
  • As of yesterday morning, Justin Morneau was tied for the league lead in post-All-Star-Break home runs. This fact is brought to you by the Twins front office, who are printing it up and mailing it out, along with hundred-dollar bills, to pretty much every team in baseball.
