Blaine Boyer tossed a perfect ninth inning Saturday against the Blue Jays for his first save of the season.

Boyer was filling in for Glen Perkins, who had thrown in three out of the last four days and took the loss in a rare shaky outing on Friday. This was just the third save of Boyer's career. The 33-year-old has a 2.19 ERA and 10/6 K/BB ratio over 24 2/3 innings this season. The Twins are 19-7 this month, tops in the American League.

Kyle Gibson was handed a no-decision Saturday after allowing two runs (one earned) over 5 2/3 innings against the Blue Jays.

The first run scored on a solo homer by Kevin Pillar in the fourth inning, but the Blue Jays tied the game in the sixth inning thanks to a throwing error by catcher Chris Herrmann. Gibson gave up eight hits and four walks, so the Blue Jays had plenty of chances, but he managed to minimize the damage by inducing three double plays. The 27-year-old owns a 2.61 ERA through 10 starts this season, but with the lack of strikeouts, we're skeptical about his ability to maintain it.
May 30 - 5:12 PM

Aaron Sanchez allowed two runs in six innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Twins.

Sanchez gave up seven hits (including a solo homer to Chris Herrmann) and three walks while striking out five batters. After failing to complete six innings in each of his first five starts, he has gone at least six innings in four out of his last five starts. The control has been a little better recently, but it's still shaky. He has a 39/37 K/BB ratio over 58 innings this season.
May 30 - 5:12 PM

Chris Herrmann slugged a solo home run Saturday against the Blue Jays.

It was his first home run since August 30, 2013. He had gone 157 at-bats without one. Herrmann is batting .171/.227/.317 over 15 games as Kurt Suzuki's backup this season.
May 30 - 5:11 PM

Kevin Pillar hit a solo homer and drew a walk Saturday against the Twins.

It was his second home run of the season and his first since way back on April 12. Pillar is hitting just .184 this month, but he has now hit safely in three straight games. Perhaps he's finally snapping out of it.
May 30 - 5:11 PM

Sean Doolittle did not participate in Saturday's fielding practice and could be headed back to the disabled list.

Doolittle looked uncomfortable playing catch Friday and topped out at 89 mph Wednesday in his return from the disabled list. The rotator cuff injury that kept him out for the first eight weeks of the season might still be bothering him. Tyler Clippard will remain the closer while Doolittle works through his injury.
May 30 - 5:08 PM

Jorge De La Rosa (finger) had his start pushed back to Tuesday.

He'll pitch the first game of Colorado's doubleheader against the Dodgers. De La Rosa was supposed to pitch Saturday but was scratched because of a cut middle finger. Eddie Butler grabbed the start in his place.

Khris Davis left Saturday's game with an undisclosed injury.

Davis swung awkwardly on a strikeout in his first at-bat. Gerardo Parra replaced him in left field the following inning. We should have an update on his status shortly.
