Minnesota Twins C/OF Ryan Doumit (concussion) is expected to come off the 7-day concussion disabled list Wednesday, Sept. 4. When he is able to return, manager Ron Gardenhire said he will wear many hats. "He's going to be the DH a lot, he'll play right field a little bit," Gardenhire said. "I don't know how much catching he's doing to do. I'm going to talk to him about that and we'll go from there."

Minnesota Twins C/1B/OF Ryan Doumit entered his team's game on Wednesday, June 5, with 13 RBIs in his last eight contests, the greatest total in the AL in that span and the second most behind Philadelphia Phillies OF Domonic Brown (15) in the majors. "I'm just getting back to basics," Doumit said of his recent rebound at the dish. "After a slow start, I watched some video and just tried to get back and simplify things. I'm in a little bit of a groove right now."
Fantasy Tip: Doumit seemed likely to get going eventually. Poor health has always been a bigger problem for him than hitting. Minnesota's flexibility to use him in multiple spots -- especially at DH -- should continue to mitigate injury risk a bit.
