Twins C Kurt Suzuki breaks loose in victory over Royals
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The struggles at the plate of Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki are over - at least for now. Suzuki raised his batting average to .200 with a two-hit game Thursday against the Royals.

Most impressive was a two-run homer off Chris Young in the eighth. Suzuki also singled in the win, breaking a three-game hitless slide.

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.

Twins option Josmil Pinto, Eric Fryer to Triple-A
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

The Twins have optioned catchers Josmil Pinto and Eric Fryer to Triple-A Rochester, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Pinto dealt with concussion issues late in the spring and went 6 for 17 in seven games of action. He could be back before long once he's received enough at-bats. Fryer was 9 for 32 with one home run this spring.

With the moves, the Twins are set to open the season with Kurt Suzuki as the starting catcher and Chris Herrmann as the backup.
