(9/22/14) Twins manager Ron Gardenhire left Brian Dozier out of the starting lineup for Monday's game against the Diamondbacks. Doug Bernier got the start at second base in Dozier's place.
Dozier has a modest four-game hitting streak, but it represents his best stretch during an otherwise difficult month of September. He is 7 for 17 (.412) with a home run over the last four games, but prior to that, he was batting .136 for the month.

(9/14/14) The Twins left Brian Dozier out of their starting lineup for Sunday's game at the White Sox. He was replaced at second base by Eduardo Escobar.
It is only the second time since July 31 that Dozier has not started a game. He is batting just .229 with two home runs and four stolen bases since the All-Star break.

(8/1/14) Twins second baseman Brian Dozier returned to the starting lineup Friday night against the White Sox. Dozier was nursing a swollen thumb after sliding into third base Wednesday, which caused him to miss one game. He is hitting .234 with 19 homers and 48 RBI in 406 at-bats.
|Brian Dozier absent from Thursday lineup |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(7/31/14) Twins second baseman Brian Dozier has recently emerged from a slump, but has been given the night off Thursday against Kansas City fireballer Yordano Ventura. Eduardo Escobar is manning the position instead.
A 3-for-6 performance in his last two games ended a 1-for-19 run for Dozier, who has not scored a run in the last seven games. He is tied for fifth in the majors in that department this season with 72.
|Prior to 2013, Brian Dozier hadn't done much in the way of power hitting in his professional career, especially once he advanced to Triple-A. However, in 78 games at Double-A New Britain back in 2011, Dozier showed a hint of the power that was to come when he bashed 22 doubles and seven home runs. Last year with the Twins, Dozier cranked 33 doubles and, in backing up the maxim that doubles power turns into home run power, he added 18 homers to his stat line. The 26-year-old pops out a lot, so he is not likely to hit for average, but if he maintains his extra-base power and contributes double-digit steals (he had 14 last season), Dozier profiles to be a top 12 second baseman. Maybe that's asking for too much, but even if what he did last year represents his upside, Dozier could make the investment of a middle-to-late round pick pay off in standard mixed leagues.
