8/18 PREGAME NOTES: Godley vs. Santana, Enns Injury Update, Gardy Back

It’s warm and overcast as the Minnesota Twins prepare to open a three-game interleague series against the Arizona Diamondbacks. It’ll be righty Zack Godley (2.95 ERA, 3.17 FIP in 106.2 innings) going for the Diamondbacks, with Ervin Santana (3.28 ERA, 4.71 FIP in 156.1 innings) taking the ball for the Twins.

More on that in a bit.

This will be the first regular-season meeting between the Twins and Diamondbacks since Sept. 22-24, 2014 — also at Target Field. The Twins the last two games of the series, as Kyle Gibson beat Andrew Chafin 6-3 and Phil Hughes beat Vidal Nuno 2-1. Jared Burton got the save in the final game.

The Twins manager that year was Ron Gardenhire, who returned to Target Field for the first time as an opposing coach on Friday. In fact, Gardenhire only managed four more games for the Twins before the end of the 2014 season, when he was let go. He’s now the bench coach for the Diamondbacks, and looks good as he’s lost weight independent of his treatment for prostate cancer. He’s doing well health-wise — he had some bloodwork done on Friday and the results came back good — and the team he’s coaching is behind only the blazing-hot Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West.

Hope Enns is OK and will get another shot or two before the season is done. Been a fan and believer in Gonsalves since day one. I am very anxious to see him in a Twins uniform. However, I have to say, I'm also super intrigued by seeing Meville and would have no problem seeing him come up Monday. Is he just a now healthy AAAA pitcher? Or is he a former top 100 prospect who battled command after injury and has found his way back? I believe he warrants a legitimate look.
