News
Twins reliever Matt Guerrier was designated for assignment following Wednesday's game.

The 35-year-old reliever has been solid for the club this season, posting a 3.86 ERA over 28 innings. He won't factor into the team's future, though, which may have been the reason for the DFA. The club will call up Ryan Pressly to replace Guerrier on the active roster.

Twins pitcher Casey Fien gave up an earned run on two hits in the eighth inning Monday but still picked up a win in his team's 4-3 victory over the Indians.

Fien (5-4) surrendered a two-out single and allowed a runner on second base to come home and tie the game, but the Twins were able to retake the lead in the bottom half of the eighth inning. He owns a 2.34 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 33:6 K:BB ratio in 42 1/3 innings.

Danny Santana owned the best average of all Twins starters Wednesday despite batting ninth in the lineup. He did nothing to change that with three hits in three at-bats as he raised his mark to a fine .325.

Santana tripled and scored in the first to tie the game, then singled and scored in the fith to give Minnesota a lead it would not relinquish.

News
Twins right-hander Anthony Swarzak had not started a game since Oct. 2, 2012. But he certainly didn't pitch like starting was so foreign to him Wednesday against visiting Cleveland.

Swarzak raised his record to 2-0 by throwing 74 pitches in five innings and giving up one run on two hits. He walked one and struck out three. He is expected to return to the bullpen after taking the place of Kyle Gibson for the one start.

Oblique - 15-day DL. Out until at least mid-July (Updated - 7/2/14)
News
Twins catcher Joe Mauer told the St. Paul Pioneer Press Tuesday he is encouraged by how his oblique injury has responded to fielding work, but still has some work to do before he is in game shape.

Mauer has been taking dry swings while working out before games, but has yet to even try to swing at half speed. He has been out since July 1 as a result of this injury, and remains without a concrete timetable until he can swing at full speed.
