Continued: Angels' Street teaches Vargas lesson in the clutch

Milone is 6-4 with a 4.31 ERA overall, but is 0-1, with a 7.84 ERA in five starts since joining the Twins.

Lefthander Logan Darnell is the favorite to start in place of Milone. Darnell, in two stints with the Twins this season, is 0-1 with a 8.25 ERA in three games (two starts). He threw 68 pitches on Aug. 22 in his last start with Class AAA Rochester, then made two appearances out of the bullpen. Gardenhire said there’s no concern about Darnell’s ability to pitch deep into a game.

This plan only works the Twins don’t need Darnell out of the bullpen before then. Milone could return to the rotation on Sept. 13 at Chicago.

“We’re going to see how the next two games go and see who we have to use out there [in the bullpen],” Gardenhire said. “The candidate is Darnell.”

Hicks in right

With a lefthander on the mound, Gardenhire opted to start Aaron Hicks in right Thursday. Hicks played 13 games in right during stints at Class AA New Britain and Rochester.

Schafer started in left and Santana in center, giving the Twins the most range they’ve had in the outfield all season.

“We have speed and we have coverage,” Gardenhire said. “We have three guys who are center fielders who are going to have to communicate because they all are used to taking charge. But I sure like it.”

Etc.

• The Angels announced on Thursday that righthander Cory Rasmus will start Saturday against the Twins.

• Timberwolves first-round pick Zach LaVine will throw out the first pitch Friday.
