    Man, he's moved fast through the Twins organization... probably just for a short-time injury-replacement, but kudos to Brent for making it to the Big Show!!! Here's hoping he comes out on fire, and maybe it can prove to be more than a short-stint this 1st time around.

    His first at bat he got hit by a 1-2 back foot breaking ball. His second at bat he hit a missile right at defensive alignment for an out. He squared it up and the exit velo had to be up there on that swing.

    He is batting 4th in the second game and protecting Nelson Cruz. That has to be awesome knowing you're batting behind one of the best. Game 2 begins shortly.

    Mlbtv is a must for any baseball fan. Every game available live on a phone, device, or tv.

    The shortstop fell over backwards after catching it. It was a missile.

    He is on the board with an rbi single.

    The two balls he has put in play have exit velos of 109mph and 112mph.

    He crushed lefties when he was here. And I don't see any reason he wont while up there. His approach has been confident and he looks to be seeing it well. He had about an 8 or 9 pitch AB on his K and he squared two up that at bat but they were foul. I hope he faces Alexander again he may launch one.

    I'm not sure about the right field thing though.

    Rooker was one of my favorites. He's the intellectual guy that's a great athlete that's reached the mountain top.
