Aroldis Chapman pitched a perfect ninth inning on Sunday, striking out the side to earn his 13th save of the season against the Blue Jays.
Chapman has been a man among boys in 2014, having converted 13 of his first 14 save opportunities while striking out 41 batters over 20.0 innings of work. Despite having pitched three of the last four days, expect Chapman to be available if needed on Monday when the Reds open up a series with the Cubs. ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Mike Pelfrey was demoted to the bullpen for the start of the season.
Pelfrey lost out to Tommy Milone for the fifth starter's job, but that hardly seems like a surprise. His move to the pen means that he's probably not even going to see much of a chance even if the Twins need a spot start as they can always bring back Trevor May who also looked better than Pelfrey. You can feel good about ignoring Pelfrey in all fantasy formats. Analysis: Howard Bender
Danny Santana will be the Twins Opening Day starting shortstop.
Eduardo Escobar and Eduardo Nunez were both being considered, but the job was really Santana's to lose. He picked up right where he left off last year, batting .341 (15-for-44), but he did strike out nine times to one walk. We don't expect him to post another .400-plus BABIP this year, so don't expect the batting average to stay as high as it was last season. Analysis: Howard Bender
