Twins placed 3B Miguel Sano on the 10-day disabled list with a stress reaction in his left shin.

Sano left Saturday's game with the issue and sat out Sunday as well. While the Twins' offense exploded without him in the lineup on Sunday, to lose Sano for any considerable length of time would be a major blow to their postseason aspirations. A corresponding roster move will be announced prior to Monday's doubleheader.

Eddie Rosario went 2-for-5 with four RBI in the Twins' 12-5 victory over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.

Rosario capped off the Twins' nine-run first inning with a grand slam off Diamondbacks right-hander Braden Shipley. The 25-year-old outfielder boasts a .303/.342/.511 batting line with 17 home runs, 50 RBI, five stolen bases, and 57 runs scored in 113 games this season.
Aug 20 - 5:57 PM

Bartolo Colon allowed four earned runs over six innings but picked up a win Sunday versus the Diamondbacks.

Minnesota jumped out to a huge 9-0 lead in the first inning and Colon went into cruise control. He gave up seven hits -- including three home runs -- but the Diamondbacks never really threatened a comeback. The veteran right-hander will bring a 5-10 record and 6.66 ERA into his next start on the road versus the Blue Jays.

Miguel Sano (shin) is not in the Twins' lineup Sunday.

Sano departed Saturday's game with left shin soreness. He's considered day-to-day. Ehire Adrianza is covering third base. Joe Mauer is getting a day off Sunday, as Mitch Garver is at first base.

Jose Berrios notched seven strikeouts while allowing just two base hits in seven shutout innings during a 5-0 throttling of the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

It was total dominance against a strong lineup. He allowed one walk, one single and one double and that was it. The 23-year-old Berrios has been very inconsistent this year but nights like this provide glimpses of his elite potential. He improves to 11-5 with a 3.99 ERA through 18 starts. He will try to maintain his momentum on Thursday against the White Sox.
Aug 19 - 11:32 PM

Brian Dozier went 2-for-3 with two walks, a run and an RBI in Saturday's defeat of the Diamondbacks.

He drove in a run by poking an infield single in the fourth inning, then came around to score on a Joe Mauer single. The second baseman isn't going to repeat last year's 42 home runs but he is having a quality season nonetheless. He has a .259 batting average with 24 home runs, 67 RBI, 66 runs and 11 stolen bases in 113 games.
Aug 19 - 11:23 PM

Joe Mauer went 3-for-3 with a walk and an RBI in Saturday's win over the Diamondbacks.

All three hits were singles, including one in the fourth inning that drove in Brian Dozier with the fifth run of the frame. After a couple of down seasons in terms of batting average, Mauer is up to .290 this year with six homers and 51 RBI in 103 games.
Aug 19 - 11:18 PM

Miguel Sano left Saturday's game against the Diamondbacks with left shin soreness.

The injury is to his lower shin. Sano didn't look right running to first on a fourth-inning double play ball but stayed in until Mitch Garver pinch-hit for him in the seventh. He went 0-for-2 with a walk before exiting. Consider the All-Star third baseman day-to-day.
Aug 19 - 10:43 PM

Tim Melville is expected to start a game during Monday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

The other starter will be Dillon Gee. Melville has had a great year in the minors, compiling an impressive 2.70 ERA over 11 outings including 10 starts for Triple-A Rochester. It will probably be one and done for Melville in the starting rotation, who figures to be the Twins' 26th man on Monday.
Aug 19 - 4:59 PM

Twins optioned RHP Aaron Slegers to Triple-A Rochester.

This move occurred prior to Friday's game after Slegers had functioned as the 26th man for Thursday's doubleheader against the Indians. He pitched well in his debut, allowing just two runs over 6 1/3 innings against the Tribe.
Aug 19 - 9:35 AM

Ervin Santana yielded three runs over six innings in a 10-3 victory over the Diamondbacks on Friday.

Santana gave up two runs in the first inning before David Peralta slugged a solo shot in the second, but he held the D-Backs off the board the rest of the way. He fanned six batters and walked three in the victory. The veteran right-hander is now 13-7 on the year with a 3.33 ERA and 131/54 K/BB ratio in 162 1/3 innings over 25 starts. He’ll square off against the White Sox on the road next week.
Aug 19 - 12:22 AM

Miguel Sano went 3-for-4 with two homers, a walk, and three RBI in Friday’s win over the Diamondbacks.

His second blast traveled 474 feet and landed in the third deck in left-center field. It was his first multi-homer game of the season and the third of his career. Sano has already established new career-highs in home runs (28) and RBI (77) through 110 games this season.
Aug 19 - 12:21 AM

Byron Buxton finished a single shy of the cycle Friday versus the Diamondbacks.

This night is what makes it so hard to give up on his talent. We’re used to seeing players fall a triple short of the cycle, but that was no issue for Buxton, who showcased his speed in a big way and scored three runs in the process. The highlight was his inside-the-park homer in the bottom of the fourth inning. The young outfielder had a chance to finish off the cycle in the seventh inning, but he lined out to second base. Buxton has now hit safely in eight consecutive games.
Aug 19 - 12:20 AM

Brian Dozier slugged a solo homer Friday against the Diamondbacks.

Dozier went 1-for-4 with a walk on the night. Max Kepler, Miguel Sano, Eduardo Escobar, and Byron Buxton also homered in the Twins’ victory. After hitting 13 homers in the first half, Dozier is already up to 11 home runs since the All-Star break. He’s up to his old tricks once again.
Aug 19 - 12:20 AM

Dietrich Enns (shoulder) has been given a pain-killing injection.

Enns was placed on the disabled list Thursday with left shoulder inflammation and he also had a shoulder issue earlier this season in the minors. He could be an option for some starts next month if he recovers well.
