    News

    Kepler (shoulder) is on the Twins' ALDS roster.

    Impact

    Kepler hasn't started a game since mid-September while dealing with a shoulder injury but appears to be good to go. The Twins seem confident in his ability to play center field, as LaMonte Wade was not carried as a backup outfielder.

    News

    Kepler (shoulder) isn't expected to play over the weekend but should return for Game 1 of the ALDS on Oct. 4, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

    Impact

    Kepler hasn't taken the field since Sept. 14 due to a lingering shoulder injury, though the Twins are confident he'll be ready to roll for the beginning of the postseason. He'll likely be reevaluated closer to Game 1 against the Yankees.
