      Twins' Brian Dozier: Playing at less than 100 percent

      Twins manager Paul Molitor suggested after Sunday's game that Dozier has been playing at less than 100 percent recently, ESPN reports. That sheds new light on his day off Sunday, but other than getting hit in the leg by a pitch Saturday, there's been no suggestion of what injury or injuries he might be nursing. Minnesota doesn't get another break in their schedule until May 26, so don't be surprised if Dozier receives another rest or two in the meantime.

      Twins' Brian Dozier: Sitting out Sunday

      Dozier is out of the lineup Sunday against the Indians, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports. It looks to be just a routine maintenance day for Dozier, who recorded one hit in seven at-bats in the first two games of the series to sink his season batting average to .218. In his place, utility man Jorge Polanco will pick up a start at the keystone.

      Twins' Brian Dozier: Out Friday with hamstring soreness

Fortunately, it sounds like just a short-term concern, as Dozier said he expects to be back in the lineup for Saturday's game.

      Twins' Brian Dozier: Not in Friday's lineup

      Dozier is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the White Sox, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. It's a little surprising to see Dozier left out after he homered Wednesday and following a team off day Thursday, but the Twins have not given any indication that there is an injury in play. Dozier has sat just one other time to this point and he's been a little slow to get going this season, so it seems manager Paul Molitor just decided Dozier could use a bit of an extended rest. Eduardo Nunez will man second base in his absence.

      Twins' Brian Dozier: Provides bright spot with homer in blowout loss

      Dozier went 1-for-3 with a three-run homer Wednesday -- the highlight of the day for the Twins in a 16-4 shellacking at the hands of the Astros. An early slump had Dozier's batting average dipping into the .100s, but he recovered in a big way during this three-game set against Houston, going 6-for-11. His stats have been pretty remarkably consistent over the last three seasons, so it seems likely that we'll see Dozier belt some more balls out of the yard soon as he continues his course correction.
