The Twins sit five games behind Detroit in the American League Central, but Perkins said he believes this club can compete for the division.

“The way we’re playing right now, yeah. I think that it’s wide open,” he said. “Kansas City has had a good run and Detroit has had a good run and we’ve won four straight here, so hopefully we can keep that momentum going and we’ll see where we’re at at the end. I think we have a pretty good club here and we’re doing a lot of things well.”

Jottings

Tyus Jones played three games with Team USA in the FIBA Americas Under-18 Championship in Colorado Springs. The Duke point guard from Apple Valley scored eight points with three assists in 13 minutes in a 63-26 victory over Argentina on Sunday; on Saturday, he had four points with five assists and two steals in 21 minutes during a 100-46 rout of Mexico; and on Friday he had seven points, six assists and four steals in a 156-58 victory over Uruguay.

Mark Hamburger, the former big-league pitcher from Mounds View High School who was suspended for 50 games for violating baseball’s drug policy, was promoted by the Twins from Class AA New Britain to Class AAA Rochester when he became eligible to pitch and he made his first appearance Saturday, throwing two shutout innings of relief with two strikeouts in a Red Wings victory.

• The Twins haven’t decided whether they’re going to sign 34th-round draft pick Mike Baumann, a Mahtomedi High School pitcher who has signed to play college baseball with Jacksonville. … Lucas Gilbreath, a lefthander who was drafted by the Rockies in the 36th round, will not sign but instead enroll with the Gophers. He is a straight-A student at Legacy High School in Broomfield, Colo.

• Jashon Cornell, the Cretin-Derham Hall senior defensive end who was once ranked the top high school football player in the nation by many recruiting services, is now ranked 16th overall by ESPN, and Alabama has started recruiting him.

Kyle Fodness, a Bemidji High School product who walked on as a kicker with the Gophers, has graduated college after only two years and has decided to no longer pursue football.
