Francisco Liriano (Left Shoulder Inflammation): He will start tonight for the Twins after spending time on the 15 day DL. Anthony Slama was send back to Class AAA Rochester to make room on the active roster.

Denard Span (Sore Neck/Dizziness): He was involved in a collision at home plate last week, doctors checked him out and ruled out a concussion. He has been in the starting lineup the past couple days but has been feeling dizziness and a sore neck. Today he is out of the lineup and is heading back to Minnesota to get checked out by team doctors.

Nick Blackburn (Back Tightness): He is day to day and is questionable for his start on June 9th, if he is unable to go Anthony Swarzak could take his spot.

Tsuyoshi Nishioka (Fractured Left Fibula): He has been rehabbing in Class A Fort Myers the past week and last I heard he will be activated from the DL and back with the Twins in time for Thursdays game at Target Field.

Joe Mauer (Leg Weakness/Arm Soreness): He has been rehabbing along with Nishioka in Class A Fort Myers the past week and the Twins hope he will return from the DL sometime in the next couple weeks.

Joe Nathan (Right Elbow Soreness): He began a throwing program on June 6th.

Kevin Slowey (Abdominal Strain): Also began a throwing program on June 6th.
