David PricePlaying A Little Pepper

Juan Carlos Oviedo was activated from the DL after he arrived late to camp because of visa issues. Oviedo has not pitched in a regular season game since 2011…Hak-Ju Lee was activated from the triple-A disabled list…Kyle Gibson is on the mound tonight for the Twins. He has faced the Rays just once, giving up 4 runs in 6 innings with 3 Ks and 4 walks…David Price faced the Twins just once in 2013, giving up 2 runs in 6.1 innings. He struck out 4 and walked 3. Price owns the Twins’ Joe Mauer, who is just 1-13 in the last 5 years against the lefty.

    This looks more like the lineup I expected at the beginning of the year. Guyer and Forsythe should not be starting.

    Price is pitching efficiently thru 7, 89 pitches. No complaints here but a reflection. Since coming off the DL last year he’s a totally different pitcher. Looking more and more like Cliff Lee. No more 95+ fastballs, fewer walks but consistent K’s. Meanwhile Shields is pitching a game we’re all used to seeing. Miss ‘em, don’t regret the trade but still miss him.

    Molina has the ground to 3rd and jog to first bit down pat.
