According to STATS
According to STATS

Minnesota Twins at Detroit Tigers

  1. Including an 11-3 drubbing yesterday, the Twins are coming off getting swept three straight by the Yankees in New York by a combined score of 18-6. Minnesota has lost a season-high five straight road games overall.
  2. Detroit lost, 3-2, at home to the A's yesterday, getting swept three straight by Oakland, and losing for the 90th time of the year -- its most single-season setbacks since going 71-91 in 2005. The Tigers are 16-22 in one-run games this year (fourth worst in MLB).
  3. The Tigers have taken seven of 12 contests with the Twins in 2017. These clubs both have 10 games left this season, seven of which will be played against each other.
  4. Adalberto Mejia allowed three runs (all earned) in just 3.0 IP five days ago against the Blue Jays, taking the loss, and dropping to 0-3 with a 5.17 ERA in his last seven starts. Mejia is 0-0 with a 5.14 ERA in two career starts against the Tigers.
  5. Jordan Zimmermann went 5.0 innings and allowed five runs (all earned) in his last start before landing on the 15-day DL, taking the loss, and falling to 0-5 with an 8.01 ERA in his last seven outings at Comerica Park (since June 14). Zimmermann is 1-1 with an 11.40 ERA in three home starts vs. the Twins since joining the Tigers in 2016.
  6. Jeimer Candelario went 2-for-4 with a double yesterday, upping his batting average to .354 with six multi-hit performances in 19 games since being acquired by the Tigers from the Cubs at the trade deadline. Candelario has never faced the Twins.

DETROIT -- It looks like the Minnesota Twins will have Joe Mauer's hot bat in the lineup for the final eight games of the regular season.

Mauer has gotten periodic rest this season but hitting .391 over his last 41 games following Friday night's 0-for-5 has made the first baseman and the coaching staff rethink their plan.

Mauer will be in the lineup Saturday when the Twins continue their four-game series with the Detroit Tigers.

The Twins have rested Mauer often on day games following night games but it probably won't occur the final two weekends of the regular season.

"We talked about it," Minnesota manager Paul Molitor said. "I asked him about playing the rest of the games and what could we do to ensure he felt good enough to do that and maybe he could DH a couple days. He said he's doing fine, doing what he has to do to get ready every day."

Using the designated hitter spot in lineups is popular among American League managers as a way to keep a player's bat in the lineup while avoiding the stress of being on the field for nine innings.

"I think it's been good," Mauer said Thursday night of how he's been rested this season. Even though maybe at some points earlier in the year I might have wanted to get out there, I understand it and I think it's paying off.

"I'm playing pretty well lately. Looking at the bigger picture, I think it's helped."

Mauer, who has started at designated hitter 12 times, will be facing a southpaw Saturday night.

Left-hander Matthew Boyd will start for Detroit, his first outing since tossing a one-hitter last Sunday against the Chicago White Sox.

Boyd (6-10, 5.33 ERA) had a no-hitter until two outs in the ninth. He is getting an extra day of rest.

The southpaw is 5-1 against Minnesota in his career with a 3.83 ERA in nine starts. Mauer is 0-for-5 lifetime off Boyd.

The Twins counter with right-hander Ervin Santana (15-8, 3.34 ERA), the likely choice to pitch a wild card playoff game should Minnesota be involved and if his team can clinch in time to set it up.

Santana lost his most recent start, against the New York Yankees on Monday. He holds a 9-5 edge against Detroit in his career -- 21 starts -- with a 3.37 ERA but hasn't beaten the Tigers since 2015.

The Tigers will be working with a short-timer as manager, Brad Ausmus.

"I found out a couple days ago I wouldn't be coming back," Ausmus said. "I knew before the Twins series started that I wasn't coming back. But I prepared for the Twins series like I prepared for any other series. Try and help this team win."

Ausmus will finish out the season as manager, which he said he would willingly do because he is contracted to do so, then go back to San Diego and spend a little time with his wife and youngest daughter, a senior in high school.
