Twins' Robbie Grossman: Available off bench
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Grossman (oblique) is available from the bench Wednesday against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

It appears that a stint on the DL won't be necessary for Grossman. Although he's still receiving treatment for his sore oblique, he's able to play Wednesday if need be. He should still be considered day-to-day heading into Thursday's series opener versus the White Sox.

Twins' Danny Santana: Likely out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Santana has been diagnosed with a Grade 2 shoulder sprain and will likely miss the rest of the season, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports.

Santana will not require surgery on his shoulder, but his recovery timetable is 4-to-6 weeks, so he presumably will not play again in 2016. He should be back at 100 percent well in advance of spring training, when he will try to lock down a spot on the Twins' Opening Day roster.

Twins' Eduardo Escobar: Out of lineup Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Escobar is out of Wednesday's lineup against the Indians, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

Jorge Polanco will start at shortstop while Escobar gets the night off. Having gone 5-for-18 (.278) with two doubles over the last seven games, Escobar has remained consistent with his season line of .266/.298/.385.

Twins' Brian Dozier: Hits historic homer Tuesday versus Indians
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Dozier went 1-for-4 with a walk and a solo shot in Tuesday's game against the Indians.

Dozier has hit safely in 25 of the team's 28 games this month, raising his average more than 10 points in the process. The second baseman's 31st homer of the year was also his 12th in August, giving him the most by a Twins player in any month since Harmon Killebrew in July of 1969. Dozier has already busted his career-high marks in quite a few categories, including triples, homers and RBI; and, the 29-year-old is likely to surpass a couple more before the 2016 campaign ends. He's been nothing short of a fantasy stud this year and is showing no signs of slowing down nearing the home stretch.

Twins' Andrew Albers: Clobbered in first start since 2013
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Albers lasted just two innings in Tuesday's no-decision versus the Indians. He allowed four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out two.

Albers first start since 2013, and the 11th of his career, was a disaster. He was given a 4-1 lead, but surrendered three in the bottom of the second while looking nothing like a major league talent. The left-handed Albers managed a solid 3.69 ERA with a shaky 1.45 WHIP in 21 starts for Triple-A Rochester this season, earning him a crack in the Twins muddled rotation. His performance Tuesday may have ruined the opportunity to become a mainstay for the season's final month, but with nothing to play for, the team will likely afford him a chance to rebound Sunday versus the White Sox.
