Baltimore Orioles and St. Louis Cardinals are among the teams looking at possibly acquiring Twins catcher Kurt Suzuki.

Both teams are likely headed to the playoffs and both are in need of some veteran help behind the plate. Suzuki probably won't cost too much on the trade market, so expect one of them to start getting more aggressive in talks.

Extension talks are ongoing between the Minnesota Twins and C Kurt Suzuki on a new contract. Suzuki reportedly wants a fair annual market value.

Suzuki has been a solid contributor for the Twins this season, and with Joe Mauer now at first base, it would be smart to keep him around. Through 295 at-bats Suzuki is hitting .308 with two home runs and 40 RBI, which is just enough production to make him an add in both deep mixed and AL-only formats.

Danny Santana smacked a two-run home run in the eighth inning off of Hector Noesi, his third of the season, in Thursday's loss to the White Sox.

Santana provided all the offense for the Twins on Thursday night, as he continues to put together a nice rookie season. He is now slashing .325/.361/.465 with three home runs, 18 RBI and six stolen bases through 157 at-bats while having recorded a h in all five of his first six games played since returning from the disabled list. Although the power displayed on Thursday is unlikely to be a common trend, his mix of speed and ability to find holes at the plate make him a solid investment while seeing regular playing time.

Phil Hughes allowed two runs on four hits while striking out four batters over three innings before being removed in the third inning after suffering a leg injury in Thursday's contest against the White Sox. 

Hughes took a comebacker off the shin to end the third inning, then proceeded to limp off the field which eventually ended his night. Prior to his exit he was on pace to have another bad outing, which would have made for his sixth such appearance over his last seven starts. He is now sitting 10-7 with a4.0 ERA and 1.24 WHIP through 21 starts and will be questionable to make his next start scheduled for next Wednesday against the Royals.

Phil Hughes had X-rays taken on his right shin but they came back negative. 

Owners of Phil Hughes can now breathe a sigh of relief. It's unknown whether Hughes will miss his next start, but you can find solace in the fact that he didn't break his shin. He's day-to-day and we should know more on Friday.

Joe Mauer was able to hit in the cage again prior to Thursday's game and his next step in his recovery from a strained oblique would live batting practice.

The road back from an oblique injury can be a long one as we are seeing with Joe Mauer. There is no set timetable for his return, but you shouldn't expect him back before mid-to-late August. He can certainly be helpful down the stretch, but keep in mind that oblique injuries tend to linger, so don't be overly optimistic.

Chris Herrmann was placed on the minor league disabled list on Thursday due to a right thumb contusion.

Herrmann is batting .308 at Triple-A this year, but is not in the Twins' long term plans. He serves as organization depth and doesn't bring much to the table. There is no timetable for his return.

Ricky Nolasco participated in long toss once again Thursday, putting him on track for a Sunday bullpen session.

If all goes well in Sunday's bullpen, Nolasco should go on a rehab assignment sometime next week. Barring any setbacks, he will return to the Twins' rotation in early June. At this point, he is only an option in AL-Only leagues.
