Know thine enemy: The Crawfish Boxes

Coming off a rough start to the series yesterday, the Twins look to strike back against the Astros tonight. This time, they won’t be facing a future first-ballot Hall of Famer on the mound, so that should help. Taking the bump for the Twins will be Chris Archer, who has been effective so far this year. It remains to be seen how he will do when pitching deep into games (if he’s ever given the chance).

The Twins made a couple roster moves today, moving lefty Danny Coulombe, who’s been excellent so far this year, to the 15-day IL and calling up righty Yennier Cano from Triple-A St. Paul. Jhon Romero was transferred to the 60-day IL to make room on the 40-man roster.
