The Twins meet the Tigers in a three-game series at Target Field, with Charlie Barnes recalled from St. Paul to start today (6:40 p.m., BSN) against Detroit lefthander Tyler Alexander.

The Twins put Bailey Ober on the 10-day injured list because of a right hip strain, ending his season. Barnes is starting in his place. Ober started 20 games this season in his audition for next year's rotation, and was 3-3 with a 4.19 ERA and 96 strikeouts in 92 innings.

Barnes started 16 games for the Saints this season, and was 6-4 with a 3.79 ERA. He has been in seven games for the Twins, and is 0-3 with a 6.61 ERA.

The Twins are 1912 games behind first place Chicago in the AL Central, and in last place, two games behind fourth-place Kansas City. The Twins finish the season this weekend against the Royals.
