Molitor: Wild pitches, Suzuki foot problem unrelated
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Twins have thrown three wild pitches that allowed two runs to score with Kurt Suzuki behind the plate since he took a foul ball off his right foot Monday. But Paul Molitor doesn't believe the two facts are related.

"I don't think it's affecting his ability to block the ball," Molitor told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "You can see he's doing the right thing."

Suzuki hasn't appeared to be affected at the plate either. He slammed two hits on Tuesday.

Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki remains in the lineup Tuesday
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki is still in the starting lineup Tuesday after taking a line drive off his foot, the team announced. Suzuki didn't have any swelling and said after the game Monday the ball hit the fleshy part of his foot and felt he would be able to play Tuesday.

"I checked with Kurt and thankfully he's OK," Molitor said. "He's bruised and all that. But he's fine. He wants to be in there and is capable in there. Not going to set him back."

Suzuki feels like he's taken a bit of a beating to start the year, according to MLB.com.

"The first 10 games I've been playing in, I feel like I've been getting beaned, or foul-tipped or back-swinged," Suzuki said. "Maybe I'll just get that out of the way now and I'll be fine the rest of the season."

Suzuki is hitting .182 with two home runs and four RBI in 33 at-bats this season.

Twins' Suzuki gets a day off Thursday after a rough day Wednesday
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins manager Paul Molitor circled Thursday's game against the Tigers as a day to potentially rest catcher Kurt Suzuki. His decision got a lot easier after Suzuki took a breaking ball off his right thumb while trying to block a pitch in the dirt Wednesday. He also fouled a pitch off his left instep.

"He got a little beat up," Molitor said, per the Pioneer Press. "He's fine. He's a guy who can play nicked up. We saw that last year. Kurt loves to catch. He wants to catch as many games as he can."

Chris Herrmann drew the start Thursday at catcher.
