Worth noting

• Outfielder Sam Fuld, who is on the 15-day disabled list with a concussion, flew to Pittsburgh to get examined by concussion specialist Dr. Mickey Collins. Fuld hasn't played since May 7 and has yet to begin baseball activities. So Fuld saw Collins for further examination. The Twins will find out more on Thursday, but the initial reports were positive.

"They were encouraged by the initial reports from the exams," Twins assistant general manager Rob Antony said.

• Top prospect Byron Buxton remains sidelined with a sprained left wrist and is only still resting it at this point. Buxton, ranked as the No. 1 overall prospect by, originally sprained the pisotriquetral joint in his wrist while diving for a fly ball in center field during a Minor League Spring Training game on March 16. He reinjured it while sliding into a base on May 8 while playing for Class A Advanced Fort Myers and still is just resting it. Buxton is expected to play in the Arizona Fall League or in Winter Leagues to make up at-bats from the time he's missed this season.

"I think we'll probably try and do everything we can to try and make up for the missed at-bats," Antony said. "If he's healthy at the end of the season, I don't see any reason he wouldn't be either playing a winter league or a fall league to try and get some at-bats."
