Hunter is batting .130 (3 for 23) with no extra-base hits and two RBI in seven games, while Dozier is batting .241 (7 for 29) with one home run, three doubles and two RBI in seven games.

Twins' Brian Dozier batting .200 with one HR through six games

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/13/15) Twins second baseman Brian Dozier carries a three-game hit streak into Monday's game against the Royals. His modest hit streak started Friday against the White Sox, when he had his first home run and multihit game (2 for 6) this season.

The Twins will face LHP David Price with the following lineup:

Twins lock up Brian Dozier to a four-year $20 million extension

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/24/15) The Twins have signed second baseman Brian Dozier to a four-year contract, buying his arbitration years, the team announced on Tuesday. According to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman, he will make $20 million over four years. Dozier will receive $15 million in the final two years of his deal, which includes no options, per MLB.com.

"This is a good day for the Twins and a good day for Brian," general manager Terry Ryan, per the St. Paul Pioneer Press. "We like to reward players that have come through our system. We anticipate he's in the prime of his career, and suspect it's going to spike, some of numbers he has put up."

Dozier, an eighth round pick out of Southern Mississippi in 2009, is set to open the season at second base after hitting .242/.345/.416 with a team-high 23 home runs, 33 doubles, 71 RBI, 89 walks and 21 stolen bases in 598 at-bats last season. The 27-year-old has a career .241 batting average and 47 home runs over three MLB seasons.

Twins' Brian Dozier trying to be more than just a power hitter

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/15) Twins second baseman Brian Dozier totaled three singles -- all up the middle of the infield -- in three at-bats during Wednesday's spring game against the Rays.

Dozier has appeared in just three spring games, but he is batting .625 (5 for 8) with one double, one RBI, one walk and one strikeout.

"When you can use more of the field, especially deeper in the count, it's going to be advantageous for him to increase opportunities to get on base," Twins manger Paul Molitor said, per The Star Tribune.

Dozier has just a career .241 average over three MLB seasons. However, he has totaled 47 home runs, 77 doubles and has managed a slugging percentage .414 or better over the last two seasons. Still, it appears Dozier wants to be known as more than just a power hitter.

"We all know he can hit a fastball," Molitor said. "We all know he's got a little bit of pop. Just looking for ways for him to get to the next level. He's learning the strike zone. Now he is trying to figure out how to be better a little deeper in the count and cut down on some strikeouts and give yourself a chance."
