Three things to know about this game By William Kosileski / MLB.com
• Rockies first baseman Mark Reynolds has faced Hughes more than any other hitter on the Rockies. In his career against Hughes, Reynolds is 3-for-12 with two home runs, one double, one walk and five RBIs with an OPS of 1.119.
• Reynolds may have stepped in the batter's box against Hughes more than any other Rockies' hitter, but third baseman Nolan Arenado has had the most success in his limited at-bats against the Twins' right-hander. Arenado is 3-for-3 vs. Hughes with two doubles and one RBI, giving him a 1.667 slugging percentage and a 2.667 OPS.
• Twins closer Brandon Kintzler pitched in three straight games from Thursday to Saturday, picking up three of his 10 saves in the process. However, the right-hander logged 3 2/3 total innings and threw 54 pitches in those three relief appearances. He was not available to pitch in Sunday's game against the Indians, but with the off-day on Monday, Twins manager Paul Molitor said that Kintzler will be ready to go on Tuesday.
