A couple of interesting things in E-town lineup...
a. Rory Rhodes, the big Aussie 1B with a lot of power was demoted from Beloit and is starting there today.
b. Hudson Boyd (who is Joba Chamberlain's spit image - see photo) is starting today. Lots thought he would be a reliever, but good to see him start.

Boyd gets out of a 1st inning jam with a bases loaded line drive double play

Thrylos - they said they would let Boyd start early in his career. Many "experts" think he will eventually be a reliever, but the Twins won't make that decision with a 19 year old with a power arm.
Rhodes is a 1B, even though he was listed as an OF on the roster. It's his fourth year in the rookie leagues, so as I wrote the other day in my E-Twins preview, he's taking advantage of the new rule.
