Continued: Jabs begin after Cuddyer's trip

Slowey is 3-0 with a 1.05 ERA with 28 strikeouts and two walks in 25 2/3 innings pitched. Slowey has the best numbers, but of the three, he also has the least amount of experience beyond Class AA.

Ryan, who is making his standard minor-league rounds, plans to watch two more Red Wings games. He's scheduled to see Garza pitch Thursday.

Liriano stops by

Lefthander Francisco Liriano strolled into the Twins clubhouse after coming up from Fort Myers, Fla., where he is rehabbing from Tommy John elbow surgery. He will travel with the team from Tampa to Minnesota for the next homestand, just to be closer to the action for a while.

Liriano said he has been playing catch from 30 feet every other day and hasn't had any setbacks. He said he will be throwing from 50 feet soon and beyond that, he's not sure. He will miss this season but hopes to pitch again in the Dominican winter league.

Liriano said he weighs 222 pounds after pitching at 201 last year. His shoulders have become much more muscular.

"I wanted to [gain the weight]," Liriano said. "I think I was too skinny. I feel good. I want to stay the way I am now."

Cirillo activated

As expected, the Twins activated Jeff Cirillo from the disabled list and optioned infielder Alexi Casilla to Rochester. Cirillo likely will start tonight as the designated hitter, Gardenhire said.
