Twins' Brian Dozier: Out of Thursday's lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Dozier is out of the lineup Thursday against the Royals, Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com reports.

Thursday will mark just the second time that Dozier hasn't been in the lineup for the month of September. With Dozier out, Eduardo Escobar will start at second base while Jorge Polanco moves up to the leadoff spot.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Finishes 2016 with no-decision versus Royals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana pitched five innings, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk while striking out three Royals in a no-decision Wednesday.

In his final start of the regular season, the 33-year-old veteran got the hook after just 77 pitches. Santana's season ends with a 3.38 ERA over 181 innings. The last Twins' pitcher to have comparable stats was Johan Santana in 2007 (3.33 ERA in 219 innings). His seven wins tied his career-worst total (2015 and 2007), but Santana's ERA and 1.22 WHIP are among the best marks of his 12-year career.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Homers Tuesday in Kansas City
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar went 2-for-4 with a walk, solo homer and scored twice in Tuesday's game against the Royals.

Escobar's fourth-inning blast was his sixth of the season, and his first in the team's last 51 games. Tuesday also marked the switch-hitting infielder's first RBI and run since Sept. 15, as Escobar has had a brutal final month of the 2016 campaign. Entering the contest, he was hitting a pathetic .089/.150/.089 through 56 September at-bats, light years beyond his worst numbers for any month this year.

Twins' Jose Berrios: Lasts 4.2 innings in Tuesday's no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Berrios pitched 4.2 innings, allowing three runs on four hits and one walk while failing to record a strikeout in Tuesday's no-decision versus Kansas City.

The no-decision leaves Berrios without a win in his last eight starts. His last victory (Aug. 1 at Cleveland) happens to also be the 22-year-old's only quality start in 13 tries this season. Making things worse, Tuesday's performance marked the first time that the rookie failed to notch a strikeout all year. If there's a bright side to Berrios' most recent performance, it would be the fact he didn't allow a home run for the first time in five starts. The righty also allowed just one free pass after issuing 17 over his last 20.2 innings. Berrios remains Minnesota's top pitching prospect, but his struggles in the majors this season have put winning a spot in the rotation next spring in doubt.

Twins' Ervin Santana: Will make final start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana will make his final scheduled start Wednesday against Kansas City, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Manager Paul Molitor had given him the option to skip his final start to reduce his workload, but he plans to pitch as planned.
