Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Eight of the Twins past nine games have been decided by one run, so their relievers have had plenty of high-stress outings. After Monday's 5-4 victory over Kansas City, Manager Ron Gardenhire noted a few things that could help keep the relievers share the load:

  • LH Brian Fuentes (lower-back stiffness) is ready to throw a bullpen session Tuesday.
  • LH Jose Mijares (right knee surgery) will throw a simulated game in Cleveland next weekend.
  • LH Glen Perkins and RH Pat Neshek have been promoted from Class AAA Rochester, as expected, and will be in the bullpen on Tuesday.
