Urshela went 3-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's victory over the Tigers.

Twins' Gio Urshela: Day off Tuesday
Urshela will sit Tuesday against Oakland.
Urshela has held onto regular playing time even after the arrival of rookies Jose Miranda and Royce Lewis, but the Twins' infield will get crowded once Carlos Correa (finger) returns from the injured list, which is expected to happen soon. Urshela's .226/.280/.330 slash line doesn't make the best case for an everyday role, but his past track record could still keep him in the lineup on a regular basis until he turns things around at the plate. Miranda will be the one to start at the hot corner Tuesday.... See More ... See Less

Twins' Gio Urshela: Sits in favor of rookie Monday
Urshela is out of the lineup for Monday's game against the Orioles.
He'll give way at third base to Jose Miranda, who will make his MLB debut Monday after his call-up from Triple-A St. Paul. The addition of Miranda presents some competition for Urshela, though the 23-year-old prospect may also see at-bats at second base, first base or designated hitter. Urshela's absence from the lineup may be a byproduct of his 0-for-13 showing at the dish over his past three starts, but he's still holding down a serviceable .258 average on the season....
