It was announced that Martín Pérez is on paternity leave and that Kohl Stewart will replace Pérez. The Twins have a doubleheader scheduled today and no off days in the next ten days. I would assume Stewart will start the makeup game this evening. Berríos could start on Sunday on normal rest and Gibson could go on Monday, but then the team would need another starter for Tuesday unless Pérez is back. With Pineda scheduled to start this afternoon's tilt (and considering his recent struggles) it would seem that suddenly an eight-man bullpen makes sense. Is that why Astudillo hasn't been activated? It appears that Marwin Gonzalez won't miss much time, but with a doubleheader scheduled today, it would be nice if he was available immediately
Who will the extra player be for the nightcap tonight? I would assume it is a relief pitcher.
What seemed pretty straightforward is now pretty jumbled. I'd hate to see the Twins' roll ended because of substandard play by their temporary callups.
