NEW YORK -- Luis Arraez suffered what appeared to be long-term injury last weekend when he twisted his right ankle on the pitching mound during a popup collision. But the rookie infielder has made a quick recovery, and will be on the Twins roster for the American League Division Series against the Yankees.

Willians Astudillo is not on the roster. The Twins will carry two catchers (Mitch Garver and Jason Castro), and utilityman Ehire Adrianza (oblique) is ready to return, so he'll replace La Tortuga. Lefthanded starter Martin Perez also did not make the roster, but rookie righthanders Brusdar Graterol and Cody Stashak did.

I would have kept La Tortuga over CJ Cron. I know he had that home run the other day, but he has looked abysmal otherwise. Not making any good contact.

I probably would have kept Perez over Gibson. Perez is another lefty, and if he's on, he has pitches to get people out. Gibby has been throwing nothing but meat balls. Perez is the riskier play, but at least he can get people out.

Yep, I have zero confidence in Gibson...

Kyle G in a nutshell. Walk a few, make some quality pitches to get some outs, but then try to nibble too much, fall behind and give up a big hit.

They weren't winning this, probably. But you go with Stashek and Gibson in a one-run game?
It wasn't a one run game when they brought Gibson in. That was Rocco pushing his chips to tomorrow. Stashek is probably they're 6th best reliever and they'd already used Littell (who looked way out of his depth) and Duffy for a ton of pitches. The only other options were to burn May/Romo/Rogers and have nothing for tomorrow.

I don't worry about tomorrow in a one-run game. This game was the one they needed. You win game one on the road and you're playing with free money.

Per The Score:

The Minnesota Twins set a new MLB record by losing their 14th consecutive playoff game when they dropped Game 1 of the ALDS to the New York Yankees by a score of 10-4.

The Yankees' win was their 11th straight against the Twins in the postseason over the Twins, a streak that is now tied for the longest of all time against a single team, according to Rhett Bollinger of MLB.com.

Win Twins!!
