Pre-Game Notes

  • With all the changes on the roster over the last few days, it's worth noting that the team is now carrying 12 position players and 13 pitchers.
  • Sam Fuld and Jason Kubel are, technically, the only two outfielders on the 25-man roster.
  • Danny Santana has been called up, in case you missed that yesterday.
  • Excluding Samuel Deduno, who should be moving into the rotation, Minnesota's bullpen is now: Perkins, Burton, Fien, Duensing, Thielbar, Tonkin, Swarzak, and the newly recalled Logan Darnell.
  • The Twins have finally hit a losing skid - the one we've been expecting since Opening Day. This squad has not behaved as we expected they would, based on teams of the last two or three years. This Twins team has been resilient and, to an unexpected extent, competitive. What will truly separate the Twins in 2014 from the Twins in 2013, 2012, and 2011, however, is how they deal with streaks like this. Hopefully we see the team rebound today.
