Four days is a lot of time off for a baseball player. Heck, it’s a lot of time off for a majority of people. So with four days off in a row, what did the Minnesota Twins roster do with their time? We peeked in to see what everyone was up to.

Jose Berrios: Pushed around trucks in various Cleveland parking lots when not doing All-Star-related activities

Tyler Duffey: Hopped into an episode of The Simpsons to fulfill his contractual duties of playing Duff Man

Kyle Gibson: Spent some time writing replies to all the fan mail sent to him from TJ
