Pre-Game Notes

  • The Twins won't need a fifth starter for another ten days, but they've chosen to keep Kris Johnson on the roster anyway. Which seems like a waste, but I'm not calling the shots. You may have noticed this to be the case.
  • Kevin Correia's ERA in his last six starts: 2.43.
  • Just as cold as Correia is hot: Eduardo Escobar. He's hitting .143/.175/.182 in his last 21 games
  • JUSTIN MORNEAU IS PARTICIPATING IN THE HOME RUN DERBY.
  • Carlos Gonzalez is 6-for-17 with three home runs versus Correia in his career. Nobody else has hit him much at all.
  • 23-year old rookie Tyler Matzek coasts versus lefties (.633 OPS) but right-handed hitters have had significantly more success (.791 OPS).
