Twins optioned LHP Buddy Boshers to Triple-A Rochester.

The left-hander has been in a rut lately, allowing five runs over his last two outings (1 IP). Perhaps a change of scenery in Rochester will do him some good. Regardless, he should be back when rosters expand in September.

X-rays on Jose Ramirez's right forearm/wrist came back negative.

Ramirez left Thursday's matinee in the second inning after taking a 93 mph fastball off his right forearm but looks to be all right. In fact, Indians manager Terry Francona said he could be available for the second game of Thursday's day/night doubleheader. Giovanny Urshela handled third base after Ramirez exited and will likely draw the start there in Game 2 against Twins rookie Aaron Slegers.

Yan Gomes went 3-for-3 with a homer, four RBI, a walk and a HBP as the Indians topped the Twins 9-3 in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader.

It's the first time in his career he's reached base safely five times in a game. He hadn't even reached four times in a game since Aug. 13, 2015 against the Yankees. Gomes had a great month of May this year, but he's otherwise been really quiet offensively. Even after today, he's hitting just .226 with eight homers and 37 RBI in 257 at-bats.

Carlos Carrasco fanned nine in five innings of one-run ball Thursday in the first game of a doubleheader against the Twins.

Carrasco got the win, moving him to 12-5 on the season. It would have been nice if he could have worked a little deeper into this one, considering the Indians still have at least nine more innings to go today, but he was inefficient, throwing 94 pitches.
Aug 17 - 5:35 PM

Kyle Gibson yielded three runs in four-plus innings Thursday in a loss to the Indians.

The good news is that Gibson hasn't allowed more than three runs in any of his last four starts. That bad news is that those starts keep getting shorter; he went six innings on July 22, followed by 5 1/3 on Aug. 5, 4 2/3 on Aug. 11 and four today. Gibson is 6-10 with a 6.05 ERA. He'd seem to be running out of chances at this point.
Aug 17 - 5:34 PM

Making his first appearance in the majors since April 2016, Glen Perkins was charged with two runs in one-third of an inning Thursday against the Indians.

Perkins gave up a pair of singles, but more damaging was the two hit batsman; he grazed Carlos Santana's jersey with a fastball and hit Yan Gomes in the foot with a slider. His velocity was solidly in the 90-92 mph range and his slider had some action, so once he gets his feet wet, he could contribute.
Aug 17 - 5:32 PM

Jason Kipnis went 3-for-5 with a homer and two RBI against the Twins in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader.

Kipnis has homered in back-to-back games after going 24 games without one.
Aug 17 - 5:30 PM

Byron Buxton homered, walked and scored twice in the first game of Thursday's doubleheader against the Indians.

Buxton is hitting .319 with two homers, nine RBI and four steals in 15 games since coming off the disabled list. Maybe it's time for the Twins to try elevating him in the lineup. Paul Molitor got himself burnt by opening the year with Buxton in the third spot, but Buxton has been a solid OBP guy since late April and he's very good when he's on base.
