News: The Twins will attempt to rest Fien over the final week and a half of the season, LaVelle Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: After Fien was pelted for two homers in his latest appearance against the Tigers on Monday, the Twins are concerned his massive workload in middle relief has finally caught up to him. He's tossed a total of 144 games and 123.2 innings over the last two seasons, and seems to be showing some fatigue in the second half. Fien would have been a top candidate to fill in for Glen Perkins (neck/shoulder) as closer while he remains out for the next couple of days, but it looks like Jared Burton, Michael Tonkin or Lester Oliveros will be next in line to receive any save opportunities that come about.(RotoWire, )

News: Fien gave up back-to-back home runs to Torii Hunter and Miguel Cabrera in the ninth inning of Monday's loss to Detroit. He was used in the ninth inning with both Glen Perkins and Jared Burton unavailable, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Impact: Both Burton and Perkins were unavailable due to some needed rest, so Fien was used in high-leverage situation, though not technically a save situation. Fien's late-season struggles continue as he has a 12.38 ERA (11 ER in 8 IP) since Aug. 24.(RotoWire, )

News: Fien (forearm) gave up two runs in one inning in a loss to the Angels on Saturday. Impact: Fien was hit in the forearm by a ball Friday, but was able to pitch Saturday. Unfortunately the injury may be contributing to his recent struggles, as he's given up nine runs over his last 5.1 innings.(RotoWire, )

News: Fien was hit by a line drive in his forearm in Friday's loss to the Angels and left the game after walking the next batter, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "He obviously wasn't throwing the ball right after that," manager Ron Gardenhire said. Impact: It sounds like Fien may be out a day or two with a sore forearm.(RotoWire, )
