Pre-Double Header Notes: Nunez Called Up, Starters

That's fun.

Twins Call Up Eduardo Nunez

Thanks to the magic of double headers and roster rules, both the Twins and the Blue Jays are allowed to carry 26 players for today only. In the case of the Twins, they'll call up newly acquired infielder Eduardo Nunez. He has gone 7-for-18 with a home run in two starts (six games total) with the Red Wings.

I'd imagine that Gardy would try to give Nunez a start in one of today's two games, simply to make the effort worth the time and money. Nunez will return to Rochester for Friday's game.

Starting Pitchers Sorted Out

The Twins will send out Kyle Gibson for his scheduled afternoon start, while Mike Pelfrey will take to the hill in the second tilt. The Blue Jays, meanwhile, send last night's scheduled starter, R.A. Dickey, out for the afternoon contest. Dustin McGowan will counter for Game 2.
