Brian Dozier tripled and singled three times against the White Sox on Sunday.

Dozier finished the game 4-for-5 with an RBI and run scored. The triple was his first of the 2015 campaign. It's been a bit of a slow start for the second baseman, who posted a 20/20 season last year, but we'll see if this game gets him going. Overall, he's hitting .240/.318/.385 with two home runs, 11 RBI, 18 runs scored and two steals.

Trevor Plouffe hit a grand slam and drove in five runs in Sunday's 13-3 demolishing of the White Sox.

Plouffe smashed the home run off of beleaguered White Sox starter John Danks in the third inning. The Twins scored seven runs in the inning, then added another four in the fourth inning. Plouffe chipped in an RBI single in that inning, too, on his way to a 3-for-5 day. The Twins racked up 19 hits in the win. Plouffe's now homered in back-to-back games, giving him five for the season. With the recent power surge, he's boosted his slash-line to .278/.356/.478.

Avisail Garcia hit three singles in Sunday's loss to the Twins.

Garcia finished the game 3-for-4 with a run scored. He was the only White Sox batter to manage more than one hit in the 13-3 loss. The three singles boosted his season slash-line to .342/.381/.430. He's now working on a nine-game hitting streak. During the streak, Garcia is hitting .416. He's starting to show off the potential that led to predictions of a breakout season.
May 3 - 6:09 PM

Giants prospect Mac Williamson clubbed four hits Saturday for Double-A Richmond.

Williamson missed most of last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery and really hadn't done much prior to Saturday. With that said, his .280 average is respectable and it could be just a matter of time until Williamson starts raking. The talented 24-year-old slugged 25 homers with High-A San Jose in 2013.

Shane Victorino (hamstring) isn't expected to return from the disabled list until the Red Sox travel to Oakland on May 11.

While he's first eligible to come off the disabled list on May 8, the Red Sox don't seem keen on the idea of him playing on the turf in Toronto, so they'll push him back a few days as a precautionary measure. He's expected to begin a minor league rehab assignment this week.

Mike Pelfrey surrendered two runs on five hits in 3 1/3 innings against the White Sox on Sunday.

While two runs isn't the worst thing in the world, diving a little deeper into Pelfrey's game reveals a rather disturbing fourth inning. After allowing a walk and a single, Pelfrey hit Alexei Ramirez to load the bases. Pelfrey would then proceed to hit two more batters to force in two runs before he was yanked with one out. The White Sox wouldn't manage another run in the frame, which is probably due to the fact that Pelfrey wasn't there to plunk anybody. The early exit also undoubtedly preserved Pelfrey's ERA. In his last relatively healthy season back in 2013, Pelfrey posted a 5.19 ERA. He's boasting a 2.63 mark to go with a 1.24 WHIP in 2015. Make of that what you will. Pelfrey will try to keep it going against the Indians in his next start.

Austin Jackson (ankle) said Sunday that he thinks he'll be able to avoid a trip to the disabled list.

Jackson sprained his right ankle during Sunday's game against the Astros when he stepped on the foot of opposing starter Roberto Herandez while he was covering first base. While his optimism is encouraging, he's still likely to miss at least a few games early in the week, in which case Justin Ruggiano could see extended action.
May 3 - 5:48 PM

John Danks was crushed by the Twins on Sunday, allowing seven runs (three earned) in just 2 1/3 innings.

The Twins opened the game up with a seven-run third inning, keyed by Trevour Plouffe's grand slam. The "unearned runs" on the line came via a Danks error to load the bases just prior to the Plouffe slam, plus another Danks error later in the inning. The Twins need to have a talk with their home scorekeeper here. Earned, unearned, we're quibbling with semantics. The outing was awful. Danks now holds a 6.20 ERA and a 1.54 WHIP, with a 19/6 K/BB ratio in 24 2/3 innings. He's not a reliable starter for fantasy play at this point, but he'll at least try to rebound from this meltdown when he faces the Reds in his next outing.
