  • It’s nice to see Brian Dozier back in the lineup for the Twins after being scratched a day ago due to injury.
  • Miguel Sano will get the start at designated hitter, a spot that he will likely push for when he gets his eventual call up to the big leagues.
  • Once again Josmil Pinto is not in the starting lineup for the Twins. He is nursing himself back to health from a quad strain.

First pitch is scheduled for 12:05 pm CT and can be heard on the Twins Radio Network.
