Update: Eduardo Escobar said he suffered a shoulder strain. He'll see the doctors Wednesday and his arm was in a sling post-game.

This doesn't sound like the description of a player that will be returning this year. Expect to see Eduardo Nunez's playing time increase from here on out.

Glen Perkins picked up the win to improve to 4-3 after allowing three runs on three hits in the Twins win over the Tigers on Tuesday. 

Talk about a cheap win. Perkins got blasted on Tuesday night and still left with a victory. Perkins has given up at least one run in each of his last four outings and it is time to wonder whether the Twins will let someone else have a save opportunity the next time one arises.

Kenny Vargas went 3-for-4 with a home run, triple and two runs scored in the Twins win against the Tigers on Tuesday. 

Vargas had cooled down recently, but broke out in a big way on Tuesday night. He will continue to see regular at-bats throughout the final two weeks.

Oswaldo Arcia left Monday's game with tightness in his upper left back after a big swing-and-miss in the sixth inning. 

Injuries are a regular part of Arcia's world and they have lightened his playing time often. We'll call him day-to-day for now and you can probably expect him to sit Tuesday.

Oswaldo Arcia went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in the Twins 8-6 loss to the Tigers on Monday night.

Arcia drew the first blood of the night from Tigers' starter Max Scherzer. Unfortunately, Arcia exited the game in the eight inning after injuring himself by swinging too hard at the plate. It's been an up-and-down season for the talented 23-year-old who has hit 18 home runs in just 369 PA. The problem is he's batting .230 (.304 OBP) and is striking out in nearly a third of his PA's.

Joe Mauer went 2-for-4 with four RBI and a run scored in the Twins 8-6 loss to the Tigers on Monday.

Mauer had the game-breaking hit against Max Scherzer during Monday's loss, lacing a single up the middle with two runners on base in the sixth inning. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough as Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera finished the Twins off in the ninth with solo home runs. Mauer has looked like his old self since returning from the disabled list.
