Gloom, doom and ... sunny skies?

Funny what a couple wins — and a couple of Detroit losses — can do. At this moment, the Twins are just three games behind the Tigers, one behind the White Sox. This despite the lousy road trip.

* This is a true setback for the Twins: Kevin Slowey is out for the rest of the year.

Anthony Swarzak gets to stick in the rotation. Behind him, should anything happen to one of the the starters, is a void. The Twins aren't particularly impressed with any of their remaining Triple A starters (Kevin Mulvey, Phil Humber, Jason Jones being the three with the most starts now that Swarzak and Brian Duesning are in Minnesota).

* At least Glen Perkins bounced back Monday from his debacle in Oakland. His shoulder may not be completely pain free, but it's functional.
