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.

Postgame update: Revere to join Twins with either Kubel or Thome heading to DL

DETROIT -- Ben Revere is on his way from Class AAA Rochester and will join the Twins in Kansas City on Thursday, when the team plans to place either Jason Kubel or Jim Thome on the disabled list.

I'm really not sure who it will be. Kubel sprained his left foot Monday and had some trouble getting through light exercises on Wednesday.

Thome strained his left quadriceps muscle on Wednesday. The team is calling it a mild strain, but Thome said he could feel it when he was running.

“Somebody’s gotta go on the DL,” Manager Ron Gardenhire said. “I can’t play two players down and can’t play day-to-day with everybody.”

Revere was batting .303 for Rochester and batted .242 in 15 games for the Twins last month.
