Notes:

-Cole DeVries will be making his MLB debut on Thursday, matching up against Chicago's Phil Humber.
-The Twins are now 5-1 on their current road trip, averaging 7.33 runs per game. Go figure.
-Justin Morneau is 1 home run away from tying Torii Hunter for 7th place on the Twins' all-time home runs list. He currently has 191 homers.
-Anthony Swarzak will be Friday night's starter, opening a 3 game series against Detroit. Since both Marquis and Blackburn are out, the Twins needed a warm body, and despite Swarzak's not-so-great starter numbers, he got the nod (6.75 ERA).

GO TWINS!
