"We're just trying to use everybody and mix them up," Gardenhire said. "We've given Florimon a day, Plouffe a day and now Dozier, and Justin Morneau DHing. Those infielders take a beating out there."
• Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony clarified why Triple-A Rochester outfielder Oswaldo Arcia left Tuesday's game in the third inning. There was speculation he was the one getting called up to take Joe Mauer's place on the roster, but he was pulled from the game after striking out in his first at-bat by manager Gene Glynn. It was reported that Arcia was experiencing dizziness, but he's healthy and was taken out at Glynn's discretion, as he swung at a 3-0 pitch and ended up striking out.
