For the Twins Trevor May will take the mound still in search of his first major league win.  Opposing him for the White Sox will be John Danks.  Here is how both teams will line up.

First Impressions

  • It finally has happened, Ron Gardenhire has decided to put Danny Santana at shortstop for a night.
  • Aaron Hicks is back in the Twins lineup and in center field.  Both he and Schafer can play the position, but Gardy must feel more comfortable with Hicks in center.
  • Josmil Pinto make his return to the Twins lineup and is behind the plate tonight as well.  Supposedly his catching ability has improved, let’s hope he shows that off.

Game Time

First pitch is scheduled for 7:10 Central from beautiful Target Field in downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota.

The game can be seen on FOX Sports North and heard across the Twins Radio Network.
