News
Nolasco didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 11-9 victory over the Red Sox, giving up six earned runs on six hits and three walks over two innings. He struck out two.

The veteran righty simply didn't have it Saturday, throwing a whopping 65 pitches over his two frames and getting touched up for four runs in the second inning alone on a Dustin Pedroia ground-rule double and a three-run shot by Hanley Ramirez. The outing was Nolasco's shortest of the season, and the six earned runs equaled his second-highest total in that category in 2016. The 33-year-old has given up 13 runs (12 earned) over three of his last four starts, and has surrendered at least one homer in six of his last seven trips to the mound. He'll look to bounce back when he takes on the White Sox next Friday.

News
Rosario went 4-for-4 with an RBI and three runs in Saturday's 11-9 victory over the Red Sox.

Rosario plated Kennys Vargas with a seventh-inning single, and put together his second four-hit day of July. The 24-year-old has exploded during the month, slashing .396/.411/.642 and raising his season average a whopping 62 points since July 3.

News
Centeno went 3-for-4 with two doubles, a run scored and three RBI in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox.

Kurt Suzuki needed stitches on his chin after taking a foul ball off his face mask Saturday, putting Centeno right back in the starting lineup. The 26-year-old had a big series in Fenway over the weekend, going 6-for-12 with three RBI and two runs scored, but Suzuki isn't expected to miss much time so Centeno will likely return to back duties going forward.

News
Gibson (3-6) allowed one run on two hits and one walk while striking out six over eight innings to earn the win Friday at the Red Sox.

After allowing a lead-off homer to Mookie Betts, Gibson stymied the Red Sox the rest of the way, leaving the contest after throwing only 96 pitches through eight innings. This was his first quality start over his last four outings, and he now has a 4.67 ERA to go along with a 1.39 WHIP on the year. He'll make his next start Thursday against the Orioles.

News
Suzuki is not in Sunday's lineup, but is available in an emergency after leaving Saturday's game with a cut that required stitches on his chin, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

A foul tip caught Suzuki, and apparently it didn't get all facemask as Suzuki suffered a laceration that will require stitches to close. Juan Centeno is catching Sunday and batting eighth in the lineup.

News
Sano went 3-for-5 with a solo homer, two runs and a walk in Saturday's 11-9 victory over the Red Sox.

The young slugger provided an insurance run in the eighth with a 380-foot solo shot, and put together his second consecutive three-hit effort. Sano has hit safely in 12 of his last 14 games, and is slashing .292/.370/.514 over 72 at-bats in July.

News
Grossman is out of the lineup Sunday against the Red Sox, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Twins manager Paul Molitor will continue to stick with the hot bat of Eddie Rosario in left field, after the 24-year-old turned in a four-hit effort Saturday. It will result in Grossman being squeezed out of the lineup for the first time in three games, but he still seems to have solidified himself as a regular option in the outfield or at DH. Grossman is holding down a .408 on-base percentage on the season, good for tops on the team among players with at least 100 plate appearances.

News
Milone (3-3) gave up eight runs (four earned) on 10 hits, including three home runs, in Sunday's loss to the Red Sox. He struck out four without walking a batter.

While a Miguel Sano error in the fifth inning saved some damage to his ERA, Milone's inability to keep the ball away from the middle of the plate is what really doomed him. On the bright side, it was the first time this year he's avoided walking a batter in a start. He'll next take the mound Saturday at home against the White Sox.

News
Plouffe (ribs) was doing some running and throwing out to 90 feet Friday prior to the Twins' game against the Red Sox, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

Plouffe has been out since July 2 with a cracked rib, but looks to be progressing in time to return to play around the first week of August. He will still need to begin to take swings off a tee before live hitting and take in a few games on a rehab assignment before rejoining the Twins.

Dozier went 3-for-3 with a solo homer Friday at the Red Sox.

News
Mauer is not in the lineup for Saturday's game against the Red Sox, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

There has been nothing to suggest an injury is in play and he just rested last Sunday, so it seems Mauer's absence is largely due to his recent slump (4-or-26 since the All-Star break) and season-long struggles against left-handed pitching (.222/.271/.300). Lefty David Price is toeing the rubber for Boston on Saturday. Mauer's spot in the top third of the lineup against right-handers should be safe but he could ride the pine more often against southpaws down the stretch.

News
Vargas is not in the lineup for Friday's game against the Red Sox, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The 25-year-old has hit the ground running since his return to the majors, going 12-for-39 (.308 average) with 10 of those hits going for extra bases. Vargas will head to the bench Friday against a southpaw (Eduardo Rodriguez), as he did Monday the last time the Twins faced a lefty, but it looks like Vargas will be a regular part of the Minnesota lineup against right-handed pitching moving forward.

News
Kintzler notched his eighth save in Saturday's 11-9 victory over the Red Sox, pitching a clean ninth inning.

The veteran righty needed only 13 pitches to get through the final frame of a wild contest, and turned in his fifth straight scoreless outing in the process. Kintzler hasn't allowed a run in 11 of his last 12 appearances, and has converted all eight of his save opportunities, with five coming in July.
