No Nightly Notes; White Activated
For now, I just want to briefly comment on the Twins decision to activate Rondell White and send down Garrett Jones. I don't know whether White has it in him to have another stretch like he did when he came back last year, but he has to be a better option than Jones. Unfortunately (and this really isn't terribly surprising), Jones has simply looked overmatched at the Major League level (his triple yesterday being a notable exception). White should be a better option for the team as the DH (where he's likely to get the most playing time). Darnell McDonald is probably a better option in the outfield than Jones would have been (might have been -- alright, IS), so I understand the decision to send Jones down and keep McDonald.
That's it -- all I've got. Hopefully, White will come back strong and give the Twins another much-needed bat in the lineup as they try to battle back into position to make a playoff run.
