Monday was a pretty busy day for it being just a regular Monday in late June. The Twins left Texas on Sunday knowing that both 3B Trevor Plouffe and SS Eduardo Nunez were ready to be activated from the DL, yet no move was made after last night's game.

The Twins have a scheduled off day before starting a series in Anaheim against the Angels.
The club is expected to make a move before tomorrow's game. The belief is that they'd like to get down to 12 pitchers. While the exact moves are unknown, it should be noted that Chris Herrmann was replaced in tonight's game for no apparent reason.
We should know more tomorrow.

All apologies for having this go up later than normal. But now that we're back up and running,

Dominican Winter League:
Jorge Polanco: 7 G,
The Twins blew a three-run lead thanks to one swing of Prince Fielder's bat and lost another one-run game. (The third time that's happened in the past five days.)
Congratulations to Adam Walker, who was named MWL Player of the Week. The Milwaukee native went 8-for-21 (.381) with five home runs and 16 RBI. His OPS for the week was 1.238.
It was quite an adventurous day on the farm today. You should continue reading, but not before I warn you: The Twins are a few years
