Righthander Cole De Vries (forearm) will throw in the bullpen Saturday, then head to Fort Myers to begin a rehab assignment. … The Twins entered Thursday a respectable 10th in the majors in team on-base percentage (.331) but 25th in home runs (nine). … They are 29th in starter’s ERA (5.98), but third in relief ERA (2.23). … The Twins were a dismal 4-14 against the White Sox last season, their fewest victories against them since 1999.

WHITE SOX UPDATE

Second baseman Gordon Beckham had surgery on Monday to repair a broken hamate bone in his wrist and will miss six weeks. Conor Gillaspie has replaced him in the lineup. … Catcher Tyler Flowers was in a 1-for-25 skid when he broke out Wednesday with two hits, including a three-run homer. Flowers decided to open up his batting stance a little bit and it paid off immediately. … Pitching coach Don Cooper is set to rejoin the club after recovering from diverticulitis. He’s been away since April 9.
