Twins Host Blue Jays Tonight; Young Coming Back
The Twins host the Toronto Blue Jays beginning a 3-game series tonight at 7:10, pregame on WJON at 6:40. Righthander Carl Pavano (2-4) gets the start on the mound for the Twins and lefthander Ricky Romero (2-4) toes the rubber for the Blue Jays. The Twins have lost 5 straight games and are 12-23 10 1/2 games back of Cleveland for first place in the American League Central. Toronto is 17-20. The Twins are expected to activate Delmon Young (rib) from the 15-day disabled list in time for tonight’s game. A corresponding roster move need to be made to activate Young. The Twins could place shortstop Trevor Plouffe on the 15-day disable list with a hamstring strain or send an outfielder down like Rene Tosoni or Ben Revere.
