Twins' Tyler Austin: Goes deep in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin went 1-for-3 with a two-run homer, a walk, two runs scored and a strikeout in Wednesday's win over the Tigers.

Austin put the Twins ahead for good in the first inning, delivering his 17th home run of the year. The 27-year-old has received regular playing time since coming over to Minnesota via trade. His value lies mainly in his power, as he's hitting just .232.

Twins' Tyler Austin: Set to take BP on Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Austin (back) will try to take batting practice Monday, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

According to manager Paul Molitor, Austin's back is "heading in the right direction" after being backed off from swings for a few days. He'll try to ramp up his activity Monday, after which it will likely become clearer as to when he may return to the lineup. Robbie Grossman should continue to see some extra playing time while Austin is sidelined.
