News: Duensing retired the only batter he faced in Monday's win over Baltimore. He hasn't give up a run in his last eight innings over six appearances to lower his ERA to 6.30.
Impact: Duensing had a terrible start to the season as he gave up nine earned runs and had just a 5:6 K:BB ratio in 10.2 innings in April and May. Duensing has been outstanding against left-handed batters in his career (.609 OPS allowed), but lefties have an .837 OPS against him this year. The Twins have been searching for a lefty specialist as a result with Ryan O'Rourke called from Triple-A to audition for the role. Duensing could move into more high-leverage roles if his recent hot streak continues.
