Jorge Polanco is on his way.

Polanco is on his way to Milwaukee and could very well be in the lineup on Monday when the Twins open a three game series against the Brewers. It's the first day Polanco will be eligible for the active roster after serving an 80-game suspension for violating the league policy on performance enhancing drugs.

Twins manager Paul Molitor indicated this morning that he's leaning toward getting Polanco in the lineup as soon as possible, and has been figuring out where to bat him in the lineup.

Polanco's arrival could be a boost to a Twins team that is falling farther and farther behind in the AL Central. They began Sunday nine games under .500, and getting above .500 is the first step towards being taken seriously.

On the short term, the Twins have to figure out Cubs lefthander Jon Lester, who is 10-2 with a sparkling 2.18 ERA.
