Liriano, Ruiz traveling to Minneapolis!

Just a short message, but a powerful one - Francisco Liriano is finally back with the Twins! The team is expected to release Livan Hernandez and Craig Monroe (surprise!) today to make room for Frankie and 1B/DH Randy Ruiz (17 homers, 68 RBI, .320/.366/.536). The good news about Ruiz is that he's been just a "smidge" worse against left-handed pitchers than righties this year, unlike Monroe, who's been unable to hit anything. Thanks to Joe Christensen of the Star Tribune for the update!

Liriano isn't going to pitch tonight, but I'm sure we'll get more information on all this as news gatherers get details. More coming tomorrow!
