Twins optioned INF Jorge Polanco to Triple-A Rochester.

The move clears the way for Trevor Plouffe's return from the disabled list. Polanco has already had two stints with the Twins this season and should be back again at some point this summer.

Twins activated 3B Trevor Plouffe from the 15-day disabled list.

Plouffe, out since April 17 with a right intercostal strain, was cleared to return after playing a pair of minor league rehab games. Eduardo Nunez has swung the bat well while filling in at third base, but he's now likely headed back to a bench role.

Gio Gonzalez allowed four hits over six innings as the Nationals blanked the Royals 2-0 on Monday.

Gonzalez struck out just one, but the struggling Royals offense couldn't put together hits against him. Gonzalez has a 1.15 ERA and a 0.99 WHIP through five starts. We're not buying those numbers, but he does figure to continue to pitch better than he did last year.
May 3 - 12:12 AM

Ryan Zimmerman doubled twice and drove in a run Monday against the Royals.

The results haven't been there yet, but Zimmerman ranks among the top five percent of the league in exit velocity, suggesting that things are going to pick up for him. He's at .234/.310/.338 with one homer so far.
May 3 - 12:10 AM

Salvador Perez went 0-for-4 on Monday and is in a 2-for-18 slump that's dropped his average to .241.

Perez had a great first three weeks, but has been cold since. He'll probably rebound soon enough, but he needs to build his numbers up during the first half of the season, since he tends to get too worn out to contribute offensively down the stretch.
May 3 - 12:07 AM

Jose Berrios won for the first time in the majors after allowing two runs in 5 1/3 innings Monday against the Astros.

Berrios issued five walks to go along with the two homers he allowed, but the homers came with the bases empty. It's still not ideal that he threw just 54 strikes among his 96 pitches, but his stuff is good enough that he'll be able to get away with that kind of thing sometimes. He struck out eight of the 23 batters he faced tonight.
May 3 - 12:02 AM

Dallas Keuchel dropped to 2-4 after giving up five runs in 4 1/3 innings Monday in a loss to the Twins.

Keuchel's velocity remains down significantly, and he's walked 18 batters in 37 innings. Those two factors would seem to suggest he's dealing with an injury of some sort, but he hasn't admitted to anything. On the plus side, he's still getting grounders and swings and misses. He's not nearly hopeless yet.
May 3 - 12:00 AM

Adam Wainwright notched a quality start with three runs allowed over six innings in Monday's 10-3 win over the Phillies.

The Phillies got to Wainwright with a three-run third inning, but he pitched well aside from that unfortunate frame. He also slugged a three-run homer into the upper deck to help his own cause. It was a small step in the right direction, although it speaks to how poorly he's pitched that it was probably his best effort of the season. Wainwright takes on the Pirates at home over the weekend.
