News
Centeno is out of the lineup Tuesday against the Braves.

After starting three consecutive games, Centeno is out of Tuesday's lineup as Kurt Suzuki returns from his recent chin injury. Although Centeno went 6-for-12 during Suzuki's absence, there's no reason to believe he'll be used in a greater capacity going forward.

News
Santana (3-9) allowed two runs on seven hits with five strikeouts in a complete game Tuesday but still took the loss Tuesday against Atlanta.

Santana now has two complete games and four quality starts in his last five outings as he is starting to round into form. He owned a 5.10 ERA after allowing five runs in five innings to the Angels on June 14. In six outings since then, he has allowed just 11 runs in 49 innings, good for a brilliant 2.02 ERA. The key has been keeping the ball in the yard -- opponents have managed just two home runs off Santana overt those six starts.

News
Suzuki (face) is back in the lineup Tuesday, batting eighth and starting at catcher.

Just days after receiving eight stitches for a lacerated chin, Suzuki will draw back in behind the plate for Tuesday's interleague matchup with the Braves. His return will bump Juan Centeno back to the bench. Suzuki has slashed .319/.347/.468 with eight RBI in 47 July at-bats.

News
Grossman is out of Tuesday's lineup against the Braves, Brandon Warne of Cold Omaha reports.

The Twins will opt to start Eddie Rosario in left field instead of Grossman. Rosario, who's hitting .413/.429/.630 over the last 14 days, will be hitting seventh in Tuesday's lineup.

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
Buxton is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Braves.

It's hard to understand why the Twins insist on giving Buxton a day or two off each week, especially when it Robbie Grossman, Eddie Rosario and Danny Santana are the three players starting over him in the outfield. He has 14 strikeouts in his last 28 at-bats, so that obviously has something to do with it, but so far unpredictable playing time has not helped him improve on his contact issues.

Ribs - Expected to be out until at least Aug 1 (Updated - 7/4/16)
News
Plouffe (ribs) hit soft toss Wednesday and will have a live batting practice session Friday, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

Plouffe is scheduled to go on a rehab assignment in the near future, as long as his upcoming batting practice goes without any issues. The team has yet to say how long Plouffe's rehab assignment will be, but it's apparent that he'll likely return to the team at some point in early August.

News
Santana is batting 8-for-32 with a .250/.294/.375 line in July.

The super-utility man seemingly can't find a spot in the lineup since the Twins moved Miguel Sano to third base and started using a five-man outfield rotation. Santana has just eight starts in July and none in the past eight days.

News
Kepler is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Braves.

Coming off an 0-for-4 outing on Tuesday, Kepler, who's played in every game since the All-Star break, will have the night off and be replaced by Danny Santana in right field. Kepler will likely return to his normal spot in the lineup Thursday when the Twins face the Orioles.

News
Duffey (5-8) was blasted for five runs on eight hits and a walk over just 1.1 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Braves.

His teammates made a valiant comeback effort, but it fell just short, leaving Duffey with his second straight loss in an abbreviated outing. In those two games, he's given up 11 runs (all earned) and a stunning 17 hits and two walks without a strikeout over 3.2 innings. Duffey's been hugely blowup-prone this year, and this is only the latest example, but manager Paul Molitor said after the game that the 25-year-old righty is still in line to start Monday.
