Kennys Vargas gets tall order in major league debut
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Twins have wasted no time throwing first base prospect Kennys Vargas into the fire. He is in the lineup Friday night against White Sox stud left-hander Chris Sale a day after his promotion.

Vargas skipped the Triple-A level in getting called up. He compiled a .281/.360/.472 stat line for Double-A New Britain this season with 17 home runs.

Brian Dozier returns to the lineup Friday
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier returned to the starting lineup Friday night against the White Sox. Dozier was nursing a swollen thumb after sliding into third base Wednesday, which caused him to miss one game. He is hitting .234 with 19 homers and 48 RBI in 406 at-bats.

Path to starting job clearer for Tommy Milone
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Twins assigned newly acquired pitcher Tommy Milone to Triple-A  Rochester Thursday, a bad break for a guy with major-league talent who was already upset with the A's sending him down before the trade. However, he is not likely to spend much time in the minors before he gets a chance to join the Twins rotation, with Logan Darnell's spot looking ripe for the taking.

Milone is the type of pitcher for whom the term "crafty" was invented, given his soft-tossing ways from the left side of the mound. The 27-year-old has logged nearly 500 innings at the major-league level with a 3.84 ERA, including a 3.55 mark in 96 1/3 frames this season. Those numbers should make him a useful Fantasy option, though he will likely need to miss a few more bats if he is to become more of an option in shallower mixed-leagues moving forward.

Given the amount of uncertainty surrounding his role at this point, Milone is not someone you should run out and grab. But, he is absolutely worth a flier in AL-only leagues right now, with a somewhat clearer path to a consistent starting job carved out ahead of him. Mixed-league owners should be ready to jump when he gets the call.
