Twins Infographics. Thorpe K's 7 in MLB debut. Lewis Thorpe allows two runs on five hits over five innings while striking out seven batters against the White Sox in his big league debut. Cruz's 2-run dinger. Cruz belted a two-run blast to center field in the seventh inning to cut Minnesota's deficit to two, marking his 16th home run of the season and his third over the last two contests. The year-old slugger is slashing. Thorpe took the loss after allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven over five innings Sunday against the White Sox.
Thorpe was called on to make a spot start Sunday, and despite turning in a decent outing, he was saddled with the loss. Minnesota is no longer in need of a sixth starter, resulting in a demotion for the year-old southpaw. The Twins will make a corresponding move prior to Tuesday's game against the Athletics. Castro has turned the Twins ' catching situation into more of a timeshare lately, as he drew starts in the first two games of the series while Mitch Garver rested.

Given that Castro has only batted. Sano broke out of his slump at the plate while starting the first two games of the series, smashing three home runs and walking twice between the two contests. He'll thus retain the top job at third base for the time being, though the recent returns of utility men Marwin Gonzalez and Ehire Adrianza from the injured list threaten Sano's playing time.
Kepler recently overcame a sprained ankle, but manager Rocco Baldelli said that the outfielder's absence from the lineup for the series finale is a pre-planned maintenance day rather than the result of any recurrence of injury, per Miller.
Luis Arraez will enter the outfield in place of Kepler, whose pair of solo home runs in Saturday's win allowed him to establish a new career high 21 in the category. Paul Pioneer Press reports. Thorpe was called up from Triple-A Rochester on Friday and will make the spot start after Kyle Gibson was utilized out of the bullpen during Thursday's inning affair. Thorpe has a 5. Kepler went 2-for-5 with two solo home runs in Saturday's win over the White Sox. It's his second multi-homer game of the month after he went deep three times in Cleveland on June 6.

His two-run shot in the first inning gave the Twins a lead they'd never relinquish, and Cruz then capped Minnesota's scoring on the afternoon with another two-run blast in the ninth. The huge performance snapped a game homerless streak for the veteran slugger, and on the season Cruz is now slashing. Pineda struck out eight and picked up the win in Saturday's victory over the White Sox, giving up one run on four hits and a walk over six innings. The ChiSox managed fewer hits off Pineda than the Twins hit homers on the afternoon.
The right-hander has now delivered six quality starts in his last nine trips to the mound, posting a 3. Pineda will look to keep rolling in his next outing July 6, at home against the Rangers. Moya was removed from the man roster Tuesday and passed through waivers unclaimed, so he will remain with the Twins ' Triple-A affiliate.
He has not appeared in a big-league game this season after making 35 appearances with the Twins last year. Gibson will not start Sunday as scheduled and will be pushed back to start Wednesday against the A's, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Gibson was needed for an inning out of the bullpen in the Twins ' inning contest Thursday, and he has apparently not recovered from that outing just yet, so the Twins will instead go with a to-be-announced starter in Gibson's spot Sunday.
Assuming Gibson only needs a few more days to reset his routine, he will be back on the mound for his final start of the first half Wednesday night. Cave was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Saturday.

Cave saw regular run in the absence of Byron Buxton wrist , but he did very little with the opportunity, batting. He's enjoyed much more success with Rochester this season and would likely get another chance with Minnesota if Buxton were to succumb to another injury. Buxton wrist was activated from the day injured list Saturday.

There was some thought earlier in the week that Buxton would need a rehab assignment before returning to the big club, but he will end up bypassing a minor-league stint after a successful round of batting practice Friday. Jake Cave was optioned to make room for Buxton on the active roster. The year-old seems to be in the midst of his long-awaited breakout season, hitting. Wade was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Saturday. He was able to make his big-league debut Friday, but it was a very brief stay, as Byron Buxton's activation pushed Wade back to the minors.
The year-old outfielder is hitting. Gonzalez hamstring was activated from the injured list prior to Saturday's game against the White Sox. The Twins ' lineup has not been released yet, so it's unclear if Gonzalez will slot into the lineup on his first day back. Luis Arraez was not sent down in a corresponding move, so Gonzalez will have some competition for the super-utility role he had been occupying.
