Twins rotation to stay in line
Manager Ron Gardenhire hinted before Sunday’s contest that the club might alter their rotation with an off day on Monday. But after his club’s 6-2 win over the Tigers, Gardenhire said that no changes have been made.
So the club will go in line with its rotation against the Yankees. Scott Baker will pitch Tuesday, followed by Glen Perkins and Anthony Swarzak. That leaves Francisco Liriano on the mound for the series opener against the White Sox with Nick Blackburn and Baker to follow.
Gardenhire also gave a glimpse at how the rotation will set up after the All-Star Break, saying that Perkins will get the first start out of the four-day break against the Rangers in Texas/. Baker and Liriano will then pitch the final two games of that series.
