The Twins say that Eddie Rosario left the game because of a left ankle sprain. He is listed as day-to-day.

For the second straight night, the Twins have lost a starting outfielder. Tonight it was Eddie Rosario, who appeared to turn his ankle when rounding first on what would have been a third-inning double. Instead as he pulled up in a limp, he was tagged out as he slammed his helmet to the turf in frustration. Last night, Max Kepler exited early after being hit by a pitch on his right elbow. Kepler's injury isn't believed to be serious though there was some fluid build-up on the elbow today. Before the game, Minnesota manager Rocco Baldelli joked about using pitcher Kyle Gibson in the outfield. If things get any worse, he may have to do it.

The Twins' Marwin Gonzalez is injured but he found a way to contribute anyway by stumping for his four teammates in the final balloting that's underway for the All-Star Game.

While the San Francisco Giants' interest in dealing Madison Bumgarner remains clear, the Minnesota Twins haven't engaged with them in high-level talks in recent weeks, a source with knowledge of discussions tells ESPN. Giants reliever Will Smith is on the Twins' radar as of now.

The struggles of Rays ace Blake Snell deepened on Tuesday when he was knocked out in the fourth inning against the Twins. Snell allowed seven runs and a career-high 11 hits over 3 1/3 innings. He went just 1/3 of inning in his last outing and 3 1/3 the start before that. Snell's ERA in June is 11.94 over five starts, raising his season mark from 3.06 entering the month to 5.01 overall. It's all Minnesota here at Target Field.
