Around The Horn: June23, 2011
(1) Who on the Twins isn't hurt? The names are astounding: Joe Mauer, Justin Morneau, Denard Span, Jason Kubel, Jim Thome, Kevin Slowey, Joe Nathan... Despite that, they just keep on winning.
(2) A's demote Daric Barton, called up Chris Carter. Will also use Jemile Weeks at second with Mark Ellis serving as a utility player.
(3) Bullpen situations – Astros (Mark Melancon), Dodgers (Jonathan Broxton), Rangers (Nefatli Feliz).
(4) Ryan Vogelsong making history for the Giants.
