Twins recalled LHP Logan Darnell from Triple-A Rochester.

He will draw the start on Saturday against the White Sox. The 25-year-old southpaw sports a 3.43 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 73/40 K/BB ratio over 94 1/3 innings at Rochester this season. He should be avoided for fantasy purposes.

Twins optioned INF Jorge Polanco to Double-A New Britain.

The 21-year-old was only with the Twins as emergency infield depth and didn't get an at-bat during his brief stay. Prior to his promotion, he was hitting .291/.364/.415 with six homers, 45 RBI and 10 stolen bases in 94 games at High-A Fort Myers.

Chris Colabello went 1-for-4 and drove home a pair of runs in Friday's loss to the White Sox.

Colabello's two-run single off John Danks in the sixth inning pulled the Twins to within 8-3, but that would be as close as they'd get. He has seen increased playing time at first base with Joe Mauer on the shelf, but remains a fringe fantasy option in all but AL-only formats.

Oswaldo Arcia belted his seventh home run of the season in a losing effort against the White Sox on Friday.

His solo blast came off opposing southpaw John Danks in the seventh inning. He also singled, finishing the night 2-for-4 and raising his season slash to .225/.310/.390 to go along with seven homers and 20 RBI.

Kevin Correia didn’t do his trade value any favors on Friday, getting blasted for six runs on 10 hits over four innings in a losing effort against the White Sox.

Correia walked two and didn’t record a strikeout on the night. The White Sox jumped on him right out of the gate, with a pair of singles and a three-run homer from Jose Abreu to start the ballgame. He now owns a horrifying 5-13 record on the season with a 5.06 ERA and 1.51 WHIP over his 117 1/3 innings. He’ll take on the Royals in Kansas City on Wednesday.

Kyle Gibson (back) will throw a bullpen session on Saturday, and if all goes well he will make his next start on Tuesday against the Royals.

He had been scheduled to start on Wednesday, but was scratched due to back stiffness. The 26-year-old owns an 8-8 record, 4.19 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 54/30 K/BB ratio over 107 1/3 innings through his first 19 starts.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said Friday that while Phil Hughes (shin) is sore, he's "not as bad as he thought he might be."

Hughes exited Thursday's outing after being hit in the right shin by a comebacker, but Gardy expects the right-hander to be fine for his next outing. Hughes holds a 4.10 ERA but a superb 113/12 K/BB ratio over 131 2/3 innings this season.

Twins pitching prospect Kohl Stewart has been placed on Low-A Cedar Rapids' disabled list due to a right shoulder impingement.

Stewart dealt with a shoulder issue toward the end of last season and is having problems again, though the Twins at this point don't appear to be overly concerned. The No. 4 overall pick in last year's draft, Stewart owns a 2.42 ERA through 81 2/3 innings of work at the minor league level this season.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reports that the Orioles and Cardinals are among the teams showing trade interest in Kurt Suzuki.

The report backs up Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, who said in an interview earlier Friday that Suzuki was "in play" for the Cards. Suzuki makes sense for both clubs, as the Orioles (Matt Wieters) and the Cardinals (Yadier Molina) have both lost catchers to injury. The Twins have tried to extend the All-Star catcher, but talks didn't get very far. Suzuki is hitting .308 this season and has batted .348/.413/.409 over his last 19 games.

Joe Strauss of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch said in an interview on CBS Sports 920 Friday that the Cardinals trading for a catcher is "in play."

Strauss mentioned Kurt Suzuki as someone who "would make sense," which is no surprise since the Cards are known to be scouting the Twins backstop. Tony Cruz and George Kottaras are batting a combined .156 (5-for-32) since Yadier Molina (thumb) went down, so St. Louis could look to upgrade for the next month or so until Yadi returns.

X-rays on Phil Hughes' right shin came back negative.

Hughes was forced from Thursday's outing in the fourth inning when he took an Adam Dunn comebacker off the shin. He'll undoubtedly be sore but the Twins are hopeful that he'll be ready for his next start.
Jul 24 - 11:21 PM

Danny Santana ended Hector Noesi's shutout bid with a two-run home run, his only hit in three at-bats as the Twins fell to the White Sox on Thursday.

Santana took Noesi deep to right field to put his team on the board in the eighth, but it was too little, too late at that point. The 23-year-old has hit safely in five of six games since returning from the All-Star break -- and the disabled list -- on July 18. He owns a .325/.361/.465 slash line with three home runs, 18 RBI, and six stolen bases in 167 plate appearances this season.

Phil Hughes is considered day-to-day after being diagnosed with a bruised right shin.

Hughes was injured when he took an Adam Dunn comebacker in the fourth inning of Thursday's outing versus the White Sox. It doesn't appear that X-rays will be required, so Hughes should have a good shot to make his next start. He struck out four while allowing two runs over three frames before exiting.
Jul 24 - 9:38 PM

Phil Hughes left Thursday's start versus the White Sox after being hit in the right leg by a comebacker.

Adam Dunn's smash appeared to hit Hughes' shin, and he eventually limped off the field with the Twins' trainer. He'll likely go for an X-ray, at which point an update on his status will be available.
Jul 24 - 9:10 PM

Joe Mauer (oblique) hit in the batting cage on Thursday.

The next step is taking live batting practice, though that hasn't been scheduled yet. Mauer has been swinging a bat for a few days now and hasn't had any setbacks, which is obviously a good sign. A return sometime next week would seem to be doable.
