We get another start from Big Mike! That's not something a lot of people thought would happen, but with Berrios and Happ gone, Pineda gets to be the veteran starter for the rest of this season. He's had two good starts since the All- Star break, classic Pineda starts of 5 or 6 innings, allowing 1 or 2 runs. You know, the kind of starts that apparently have no trade value.
Let's all take a minute to appreciate Jorge Polanco's July: .327/.366/.548, 6 HR
And there was Luis Arraez in July as well: .373/.415/.458
Alright, those are the positive vibes I got. Go Twins!
