OF Aaron Hicks, SP Logan Darnell set to join Twins
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Twins have announced the activation of outfielder Aaron Hicks from the disabled list and the promotion of left-hander Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester.

Hicks spent the minimum amount of time on the DL with a strained hamstring. He will try to break a 3-for-30 skid upon his return.

Darnell has shined in the minors this season, and particularly since moving into a starting role. He is 5-1 with a 2.78 ERA.

Twins' Eddie Rosario mashes first grand slam of career in loss
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Twins outfielder Eddie Rosario connected on his first-career grand slam on Thursday, but it wasn't enough to avoid the 6-4 loss to the White Sox.

Rosario came to bat with the bases loaded and his team down 1-0 in the third inning. With one swing of the bat, he gave the Twins a three-run lead. The bullpen was unable to make that lead last however.

The four RBI is a new career-high for the Twins rookie. Rosario is batting .237 (9 for 38) with two homers and six RBI over his last 10 games.

Twins SP Kyle Gibson gets no-decision despite quality start
by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer

Twins right-hander Kyle Gibson turned in a quality start on Thursday against the White Sox, but was left with a no-decision. Gibson allowed three runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out four and did not walk a batter, as the Twins dropped the series-finale 6-4.

Gibson allowed an early run in the top of the first inning, but the Twins rallied to take the lead on the heels of an Eddie Rosario grand slam in the third. But the White Sox chipped away, adding runs in the fourth and sixth innings. He left the game with the score tied 3-3, but the bullpen gave up three runs in the seventh.

Gibson has allowed three runs or fewer in five of his last seven starts, as his ERA is down to 3.84 on the year.

Twins' Perkins won't go on road trip; Jepsen to close in his absence
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Twins closer Glen Perkins will not go on the team's nine-game road trip, which begins Friday at Houston, due to his lingering back injury. The Twins don't return home until Sept. 14 vs. Detroit.

"I honestly don't know what happened. I pitched Tuesday. That day I would have said I felt 90-95 percent," Perkins said, per 1500ESPN.com. "Everything was good, everything was fine, I pitched, I didn't think anything of it after the game. Then when I woke up [Wednesday], I couldn't get out of bed. It completely blindsided me.

"I don't feel any better today [Thursday]. It's going to take a little bit more time this time."

Manager Paul Molitor said Kevin Jepsen will fill-in as closer in Perkins' absence.

"It's a tough thing. Because you can't really inject it, it's not an injury that needs that type of attention," Molitor said of Perkins' injury. "There's not really anything you can do other than to try to find ways to calm it down and do what you can to see if you can get him back out there.

"There's a chance, at least in my mind, that this could be something that lingers. Might have some good days, some bad days here on out."
