Still no Danny Santana at shortstop.

This is going to be a tough game tonight for the Twins with having to face David Price. While it's nice to see Gardy doing some platooning for once (i.e. starting Eduardo Nunez against a LHP), it comes at the expense of avoiding Danny Santana at shortstop. This continues the infuriating trend where the Twins say one thing and then do the exact opposite.
Kyle Gibson takes the mound and he's been riding the struggle bus a lot lately. His ERA for most of the season was around 4, but he's now around 4.50 for the year. He might be tiring here at the end of the season, but the Twins haven't shown any evidence that they want to shut him down yet. Still, he's easily been the second-best pitcher in the rotation.
