Minnesota Twins manager Paul Molitor had praise for OF Byron Buxton at the team's fan festival, saying "our team is going to be really good when he's playing center field. We're going to give him a chance to win that job."
Fantasy Tip: Buxton will get every chance to win that job with OF Aaron Hicks no longer on the roster. Still, remember he hit .209 last year and temper your expectations accordingly on draft day.

Minnesota Twins manager Paul Molitor said he has not determined how the starting rotation will be reshuffled when SP Ervin Santana is eligible to pitch on Sunday, July 5.
Fantasy Tip: Santana ($3,000, 6.0% of cap) will definitely be inserted, but the question is who leaves. Speculation had Tom Milone ($3,800, 7.6% of cap) being removed, but Trevor May ($5,400, 10.8 of cap) could be a casualty with a 4-6 record and a 4.62 ERA. Or Molitor could go with a six-man rotation. Stay tuned to see what happens.
