• Shortstop prospect Nick Gordon, the fifth overall pick of the 2014 First-Year Player Draft, went 4-for-5 with a double and a walk and scored two runs in his professional debut Thursday night with Rookie-level Elizabethton.
• Third-base prospect Miguel Sano is set to have his three-month checkup on July 7 after undergoing Tommy John surgery on his right elbow in March. The Twins are hopeful he'll be able to start doing light throwing after his checkup, and could serve as a designated hitter in the Minor Leagues in August.
