No Brian Dozier today for the Minnesota Twins, he is still out with some back stiffness after a collision in Toronto on Wednesday afternoon. The Twins do add Sam Fuld and Eric Fryer to the roster today, though. Fuld is activated after Aaron Hicks was put on the DL and Fryer is up after the demotion of Josmil Pinto. None of the players I just listed are in the starting nine for this crucial series against division leading Detroit, so let’s look at who is in the lineup tonight.
Minnesota Twins (31-33) Lineup
Joe Mauer 1B
Detroit Tigers (34-28) Lineup
Ian Kinsler 2B
Don Kelly LF
- Back-to-back Eduardo’s means double the fun!
- Kurt Suzuki in the two-hole! PARTAY!
- It’s amazing how Kendrys Morales makes this lineup actually look not half bad. (I’ll probably be saying this for a while)
- This is a pretty huge series for the Twins if they actually want to contend. No pressure, boys.
- Smyly, another great name.
First pitch is scheduled for 6:08 Central from Comerica Park in Detroit, Michigan.
The game can be seen on FOX Sports North or heard on the Twins Radio Network.
