Phil Hughes makes his first start for the Twins since leaving his last start early after being hit by a batted ball in this shin, but fortunately he will not be missing a start. We'll see if the injury affects him at all or if he's able to continue his solid debut season for the Twins.
Opposing him is young lefty Danny Duffy, who is 5-10 on the season but matches that with a stellar 2.47 ERA. He'll be dialing up his fastball to the mid-90s and I expect the Twins offense to have a tough time scoring runs against him tonight.
Lineups will be posted when I return from my dinner date with my wife.
