Scott Baker Returns Wednesday

Who gets bumped?

When the Twins get back to Minneapolis, Scott Baker will be waiting for them.  He has one bullpen session scheduled for today, and then will be jumping a flight back to the Twin Cities.  There isn't much debate over who he'll be replacing in the rotation, as admirably as R.A. Dickey pitched in Friday's series opener, but there is some question as to which pitcher will get sent away.

Veteran Dickey isn't likely to accept an assignment to Rochester, and it's unlikely the Twisn are willing to part with him at this point in the season.  Likely the axe will fall on Brian Duensing, with financial committments and options eliminating any other bullpen options.

The move will be made Wednesday, likely prior to the third game against Toronto.
