Player Notes
Kris Johnson was knocked around for five runs over just four innings in Friday's loss to the Rockies.

Advice: Welcome to Coors Field. Making the start in place of the injured Ricky Nolasco, Johnson allowed eight hits in the loss, including a pair of two-run homers. The 29-year-old left-hander should stick in Minnesota's rotation for now, but he's not really a fantasy option.

Twins recalled LHP Kris Johnson from Triple-A Rochester.

Advice: He'll make the start on Friday in Colorado. While it's obviously not an ideal setting to rejoin the rotation, Johnson should stick around as long as Ricky Nolasco (elbow) is on the shelf. He's put up a 2.75 ERA over 16 Triple-A start this season.

Fri, Jul 11 Rotoworld
Kris Johnson will be promoted to start for the Twins on Friday.

Advice: Johnson will take the rotation spot of Ricky Nolasco, who was placed on the disabled list with a right elbow issue. Johnson held the Dodgers scoreless over 4 1/3 innings in a spot start earlier this year, but the southpaw walked six in the outing. The official move and a corresponding roster move likely won't be made until Friday.
