SS Pedro Florimon is hitting only .237 with five doubles, two triples and five RBIs in 29 games, but manager Ron Gardenhire likes him at shortstop.

I think that would be a beneficial piece to his season, but that's up to the player."

Minnesota Twins SS Brian Dozier will work on keeping his swing consistent in the minor leagues in hopes of earning a promotion in September.

You saw a lot of balls going in the air."
