Minnesota Twins 1B Joe Mauer, 3B Miguel Sano and CB Byron Buxton are not in the starting lineup against Cleveland Indians SP Josh Tomlin Sunday, July 17. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at third base, while OF Robbie Grossman will serve as the designated hitter. 1B Kennys Vargas will start at first base and is batting third. OF Eddie Rosario will start in left field and is batting sixth, while OF Danny Santana will start in center field and is batting ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Vargas is hitting .400 with three home runs and four RBI since being recalled from the minor leagues and should be a decent option in daily fantasy leagues. Rosario has 12 hits in his last five games and should be used in starting lineups. Santana has at least one hit in five of his last seven games, but owners probably will be able to find better options.

Cleveland Indians SP Danny Santana (elbow) threw a bullpen session Friday, July 15, and felt great.
Fantasy Tip: Salazar is scheduled to start next against the Kansas City Royals Tuesday, July 19. Unless a cause for concern arises between now and Tuesday, Salazar should be started confidently. He's been a fantasy ace thus far with 10 wins, a 2.75 ERA, a 1.18 WHIP and 118 strikeouts through 104 2/3 innings.

Minnesota Twins OF Byron Buxton and SS Eduardo Escobar (hamstring) are out of the lineup Wednesday, July 6, with OF Eddie Rosario hitting seventh and SS Danny Santana hitting ninth.

Minnesota Twins C Joe Mauer and SS Eduardo Escobar (hamstring) are not in the starting lineup against Oakland Athletics SP Sean Manaea Tuesday, July 5. 1B Kennys Vargas will start at first base and is batting fifth. SS Eduardo Nunez will start at shortstop, while OF Robbie Grossman will serve as the designated hitter. OF Danny Santana will start in left field and is batting seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Vargas went hitless in his only other start of the season, so owners outside of AL-only leagues should avoid him. Santana is hitting only .188 over the last seven days and is not a strong fantasy option.

Minnesota Twins SS Eduardo Escobar (hamstring) and OF Byron Buxton are out of the lineup Monday, July 4, with 1B Kennys Vargas hitting fifth and OF Danny Santana hitting ninth.
Fantasy Tip: Vargas has power potential, and he's worth a basement play against Kendall Graveman. Santana isn't much of an option at the bottom of the order.
