"Possibility" Nelson Cruz Gets Activated Monday

Minnesota Twins designated hitter Nelson Cruz may return from the injured list Monday when first eligible. He landed on the shelf last weekend with a wrist injury, but has made a speedy recovery as expected. Cruz has been on fire in the second half hitting .333 with 16 homers in 25 games showing little age as a 39-year-old. He's been limited to 87 games this year, but has produced nearly full-season totals with 32 dingers, 76 RBI, and a .294 batting average this season. Cruz will hopefully join the Twins for a six-game homestand this week as they continue to battle the Indians for the AL Central title.

Max Kepler Hits 33rd Homer On Friday

Minnesota Twins outfielder Max Kepler went 1-for-4 with a two-run homer in a 4-3 win over the Texas Rangers on Friday. Kepler's fourth-inning shot broke a 0-0 tie and got the Twins on the board. The young outfielder is having a stellar breakout season, hitting .255 with an .869 OPS, 33 homers, 82 runs, 80 RBI, and a steal. He had been slowing down of late, hitting just .107 over his past seven games, so hopefully the homer will help him to heat back up at the plate. He will look to keep it going against Texas right-hander Ariel Jurado on Saturday.

Luis Arraez Stays Hot In Thursday Win

Minnesota Twins second baseman Luis Arraez stayed hot in a 13-6 win over the Texas Rangers on Thursday. Arraez went 3-for-5 with a double, a homer, two runs, and three RBI in the win. The rookie infielder has been extremely impressive this season, stealing the everyday second baseman job from veteran Jonathan Schoop and producing in a loaded Minnesota lineup. Arraez is hitting .355 with 10 doubles, three homers, 34 runs, 19 RBI, and one steal. At this point, Arraez needs to be owned in all leagues while he's hot at the plate.

Michael Pineda Solid In Return From IL

Minnesota Twins right-hander Michael Pineda pitched well in a 13-6 win over the Texas Rangers on Thursday. Pineda was activated from the injured list earlier in the day after spending about two weeks on the sidelines with a triceps strain. Pineda allowed three runs over five innings while striking out six and walking just one. The veteran right-hander improved his record to 8-5 with a 4.20 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 109 strikeouts in 122 innings of work. Pineda will look to keep it going in his next start, which comes on Tuesday against the Chicago White Sox.

Mitch Garver Homers In Second Straight Game

Minnesota Twins catcher Mitch Garver went 1-for-5 with a solo homer in a 6-5 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers on Wednesday. The young backstop's home run was a leadoff shot off Milwaukee lefty Gio Gonzalez. Garver has now hit homers in two straight games, giving him 23 on the season. He has taken a massive step forward this season, hitting .266 with a .960 OPS, 49 runs, and 50 RBI. He has firmly established himself as a top-six fantasy catcher with his excellent hitting for the Twins.
