LHP Mike Minor will start on Sunday in place of RHP Brandon Beachy. 

Update: Ervin Santana will throw his last bullpen session Thursday and then start Sunday for Minnesota.

Santana has been on suspension for a positive PED test shortly after signing with the Twins. He has been making some rehab starts in the minors to get ready for his activation and the bullpen session on Thursday is just a final tune up for his season debut. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Rockies optioned INF Rafael Ynoa to Triple-A Albuquerque.

Ynoa hit .225 over 52 game for the Rockies this season and was optioned to make room for Drew Stubbs on the roster. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Rockies recalled OF Drew Stubbs from Triple- A Albuquerque.

Stubbs was hitting just .263 for Triple-A Albuquerque and had hit just .118 this season before being demoted. While Stubbs has flashed his power and speed ability over the course of his career unless an injury occurs to the Rockies outfield he likely will be used in a reserve role. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Nets have actively shopped Joe Johnson in the last two days, but teams leery of taking on his contract.

Johnson still has plenty of game left in the tank as evidenced by his 14.4 points, 3.7 assists, 4.8 rebounds and 1.5 three-pointers per game averages last season. Johnson signed a big contract with the Hawks and was dealt to the Nets a few seasons back which is likely the reason the Nets are having hard time finding a trade partner without having to eat most of the money. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Aron Baynes agreed to terms with the Pistons on a three-year deal.

Baynes averaged 16 minutes per game off the bench for the Spurs last season, scoring 6.6 points and 4.5 rebounds per game. With the departure of Greg Monroe to the Bucks Baynes could be in line for a increased role in the Pistons front court. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba

Derek Holland will throw a bullpen session Friday. His MRI Thursday came back clean.

Holland was injured after throwing just one inning this season and has been on the DL ever since due to a back strain. While it's good news that his MRI is clean there is still no timetable for his pending return and hoping he will make a fantasy impact is very risky. Analysis: Jonathan Impemba
