Jose Mijares will be activated after the game. The belief is that catcher Wilson Ramos will be sent to make room for him.

Joe Mauer wanted to play today, so he's back behind the plate. He's batting .345 against John Danks.

Justin Morneau is batting .345 with three homers against Danks, too.

But people looking for a pick to click today might want to try Michael Cuddyer, who's 17-for-33 (.515)  with five homers off Danks.

All that considered, Danks has been Chicago's  best pitcher so far. He's 3-1 with a 1.98 ERA - and held the Twins to one earned run over six innings on Apr. 9. Danks got a no decision in a game eventually won by the Twins, 4-3.

Twins righthander Carl Pavano has pitched eight innings in each of his last two starts - and has lost both games.
