Mike Napoli (finger) is back in the starting lineup Thursday against the White Sox.

Apr 17 - 4:44 PM

Jose Abreu will get the day off Thursday against the Red Sox.

Abreu is currently in a 1-for-20 stretch, so it's not a bad time to give him a breather. Paul Konerko will make the start at first base.
Apr 17 - 4:41 PM

Twins recalled INF Eduardo Nunez from Triple-A Rochester.

Nunez, who was recently acquired from the Yankees, will function as the 26th man for Thursday's doubleheader and play third base in the nightcap. He'll be optioned back to Triple-A on Friday.
Apr 17 - 4:37 PM

Kyle Gibson pitched four-hit ball for eight innings and combined with Anthony Swarzak on a shutout of the Blue Jays on Thursday.

It's a depleted Blue Jays lineup, but that's still quite an outing for the 26-year-old. He's already 3-0 with a 0.93 ERA this year after going 2-4 with a 6.53 ERA in 10 starts as a rookie last season. While he should remain a decent enough AL-only starter, we don't expect him to last as an asset in mixed leagues.
Apr 17 - 4:34 PM

R.A. Dickey lasted just 4 1/3 innings and gave up five runs in a loss to the Twins on Thursday.

Dickey's slow start last year could be explained by a sore back that robbed his knuckler of some velocity. This year, he has no such excuse; he just hasn't been able to locate. He's been effective in just one of his four starts, when he walked one batter in 6 2/3 scoreless innings against the Yankees. In his other three starts, he's walked 14 in 16 1/3 innings. Mixed leaguers might want to try another option next week.
Apr 17 - 4:31 PM

Joe Mauer contributed two hits and scored two runs Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Mauer has been striking out more than usual -- 17 times in 14 games -- but he has his average up to .293, and with nine walks mixed in, he's scored 10 runs. That's quite an improvement over his pace from last year, when, despite a .404 OBP, he scored just 62 times in 113 games.
Apr 17 - 4:28 PM

Doug Fister (lat) threw two innings Thursday in an extended spring training game.

Fister threw a total of 28 pitches. He's expected to three innings next time out before going on a minor league rehab assignment. Barring any setbacks, the hope is that he'll join Washington's rotation in about 20 days.
Apr 17 - 4:25 PM

Twins' No. 8 hitter Aaron Hicks went 0-for-4 in Thursday's win, dropping his average to .170.

Hicks has walked nine times in 47 at-bats, but he's not making any sort of case to move into the leadoff spot yet. Maybe that will come later. As is, he's just fighting to stay in the lineup.
