The Twins are back at it again today, looking to take Game 3 and the series from the Tigers before Toronto comes to town. Joe Ryan is taking the bump for the home team, back at it after his worst outing of the season last week in San Diego. Lefty Tyler Alexander will be hurling for the Tigers, coming into the game with a 4.10 ERA across 5 starts and 10 relief appearances.
I bet you thought the roster moves were done after yesterday’s flurry, but you were wrong. Shame on you. Caleb “Meat Raffle” Thielbar is back from the IL, taking the spot of Joe Smith, who has been DFA’d today after much wailing and gnashing of teeth over DFA’ing Jharel Cotton (for the third time) yesterday rather than the adrift submariner. Additionally, trade import Sandy Leon has been called up and Caleb Hamilton sent down.
Sandy León has been added to the active roster. Joe Smith has been designated for assignment.
Caleb Thielbar has been activated off the IL. Caleb Hamilton was sent to Triple A. #MNTwins
