TWINS UPDATE

Brian Dozier looks comfortable at second base — and at the top of the order. Dozier made several strong plays Tuesday. Over the past five games, Twins leadoff hitters are batting .391, and Dozier has started four of those. ... Is Eduardo Escobar making a push for more playing time? Escobar has started five games at shortstop and is 9-for-18 in those games. ... Joe Mauer with two hits on Tuesday passed Bucky Harris for 19th on the Senators/Twins all-time hit list with 1,295. ...Watch Pedro Hernandez’s start Saturday. He needs to mix in curveballs early in the count.

 

RANGERS UPDATE

So far, the Rangers are doing just fine without Josh Hamilton. The key has been pitching, as the staff entered play Wednesday with a team ERA of 2.84 and four shutouts. ... Twins fans will get to see a couple of Rangers prospects this week in Tepesch and Grimm. Grimm is ranked as the fifth-best Rangers prospect by Baseball America and is owner of the best curveball in the farm system. ...Veteran starters Colby Lewis (flexor pronator surgery) and Matt Harrison (inflamed nerve in lower back) are on the disabled list.
