TWINS UPDATE

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire was asked what his plans for third base were now that Danny Valencia is at Class AAA Rochester. "We don't have one yet," he replied. Jamey Carroll started at third base Tuesday. The Twins have tried to give the job to Trevor Plouffe, but he is batting .133. Alexi Casilla could play some at third, too, but Carroll has more experience there. ... Outfielder Denard Span, who rested a sore right hamstring Tuesday, is batting .429 off Doug Fister and .364 off Rick Porcello.

TIGERS UPDATE

Detroit dominated the series last year, winning 14 of 18 games. That included four one-run victories. ... Fister missed a month because of a strained left side but came back May 7 and has given up one run in 13 innings since. He's 8-2 with a 1.55 ERA since being traded to Detroit from Seattle during last season. ... Porcello is one of four pitchers to have given up a home run to Drew Butera. ... Miguel Cabrera is batting .448 against Blackburn with three homers and 13 RBI.
