Continued: Twins place Fuld on DL; Nunez called up

“Defense, I can pick it,” he said. “I have to hit a little more. If I can hit a little more I can be here a long time.”

The Twins will announce Friday who will replace Florimon and Herrmann on the roster. Aaron Hicks, who’s eligible to come off the concussion DL, should be one of the call-ups.

Defensive deficiencies

The Twins’ inexperience, because of injuries, showed a few times Thursday.

Eduardo Escobar got turned around on Michael Brantley’s drive over his head in the first inning and missed making a catch — although it would have been a tough one. The Twins had Escobar play deep in center because it’s easier for him to come in on balls than go back. That left space in front of him, though. Escobar played so deep that Mike Aviles was able to stretch a single into a double in the seventh because Escobar had to run so far in to get to the ball. Escobar did make a nice throw to Danny Santana, who relayed home in the first to get Carlos Santana at the plate.

Carlos Santana beat out an infield hit in the fifth because Danny Santana hesitated before throwing to first.

“He has to recognize the pace of the game up here and be a little quicker,” Gardenhire said. “A couple guys got on because of it.’’
