Suzuki will be monitored ahead of Tuesday's game and should be considered a game-time decision as a result. If he's unable to take the field against the Royals, expect Chris Herrmann to make the start.

Suzuki hit his first homer of the year as part of a 2-for-4 day with two RBI in Wednesday's win over the Royals.

The Twins' primary catcher opened the season with an impotent first seven games, going just 3-for-21 -- all singles -- to start the year, but he finally showed up in this one. Suzuki's track record in the majors has been one of inconsistency and evaporated power, so he's best used in very deep or AL-only formats.
