Injury update
After Tuesday's game, Justin Morneau was activated off the DL. He's been swinging in batting practice for the last couple of days. The Twins optioned Chris Parmelee to AAA, so that means Justin will be back at first base.


Carl Pavano's shoulder is still bugging him, even though he seems committed to keep pitching through it. He's going to hang back in Minneapolis while the team travels to Detroit so he can do some more work with a soft-tissue specialist. He'll meet the team in Milwaukee before his next scheduled start. I admire his willingness to play through this. He's not really helping the team, but he's certainly not hurting it. And it's not like he's blocking anyone who could do a better job.


Denard Span was held out of the lineup on Tuesday due to a tight hamstring. It didn't sound serious.

Tweet of the series
ESPN1500 writer and radio personality Phil Mackey had this little nugget of information after Tuesday's game:
Holy crap. Derek Lowe threw 127 pitches today and 115 of them were sinkers. He threw the SAME pitch 115 times!

Way to learn how to make adjustments, Twins.

    Pavano has got to rest that shoulder and get some velocity back so the Twins can get him pitching well enough again to be trade bait at the end of July.

    I don't know if there aren't better pitchers ready to take over for him (DeVries, Bromberg).
