Player News
Shane Robinson replaces Jordan Schafer in Twins' lineup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(12:00 pm ET) Twins center fielder Jordan Schafer is not listed in Sunday's starting lineup. 

Schafer gets a rest, as Shane Robinson replaces him in center. Robinson will bat ninth in the order. 


Eduardo Escobar in Twins' Sunday lineup
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(11:58 am ET) Twins shortstop Eduardo Escobar was in the team's starting lineup for Sunday's game. Escobar had been questionable for the game with a toe injury. 

The toe forced Escobar out of Friday's game in the eighth inning, and he wasn't in the starting lineup on Saturday. He ended up pinch hitting in Saturday's game, however.

(11:47 am ET) Royals catcher Salvador Perez and left fielder Alex Gordon are both out of the team's starting lineup for Sunday. 

Both players are being rested. Erik Kratz will catch, in just his second game appearance of the year. Kratz is batting seventh in the lineup.

Pirates' Starling Marte coming out of funk vs. Brewers
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:44 am ET) Pirates left fielder Starling Marte carried a .103/.156/.241 line into this weekend's series against the Brewers but has found his swing, going 4 for 10 with two home runs, seven RBI and two stolen bases in his last two games.

"Look where he was four days ago, and look where he is now," manager Clint Hurdle said after Saturday's win.

Marte struck out 14 times in 26 at-bats over his first seven games, and while he still didn't manage a hit Wednesday, he was able to avoid striking out for just the second time this season at that point. He's yet to strike out in his team's current series against the Brewers.

"Sometimes, it's extra work (on an off night). Sometimes it's us talking," Hurdle said. "It's always important for players to know the expectations of the manager. And it's never an average, a home run or RBIs; it's intangibles. They need to hear that you believe in them when things might not look very good. And he responded very well."

With his recent upturn, Marte has hit .189/.225/.459 with three home runs and nine RBI in 37 at-bats. He's batting fifth in Sunday's series finale against the Brewers.

David Murphy gets his third straight start at three different positions. After playing left and right field the last two days, Murphy gets the start at DH, batting sixth.


Delmon Young gets start in left for Orioles
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(11:32 am ET) Delmon Young is in the Orioles starting lineup for the first time since April 14. 

Young starts in left field for the first time this season on Sunday. Alejandro De Aza is out of the lineup.

Chris Davis starts at first base for the second straight game, with Jimmy Paredes at DH.
