Suzuki is out of the lineup for the second game of Thursday's doubleheader with the Indians, LaVelle Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

Suzuki is out of the lineup Friday against the Angels, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

The Twins have taken measures to reduce Suzuki's workload of late, which is understandable given they inked him to a $12 million extension in July, and the team will likely continue to do so over the remainder of the year. Josmil Pinto will step in behind the plate Friday to catch starter Ricky Nolasco, with Suzuki on the bench for the fourth time in eight games.

After starting behind the plate for Saturday night's tilt, Suzuki will be rested for Sunday's afternoon affair. Suzuki will give way to Eric Fryer, who along with Josmil Pinto, could cut into Suzuki's workload in September, when rosters expand.

Suzuki is out of the lineup Wednesday against the Indians, Tyler Mason of FOX Sports North reports.

Suzuki's absence seems odd considering he received a day off on Monday, but perhaps manager Ron Gardenhire is just looking to preserve him for the final stanza of the season. The Twins have made it clear that Suzuki is a player they value by virtue of the two-year contract extension he received in July, so he could receive some time off down the stretch as the team looks to give some of their less experienced catchers (such as Josmil Pinto) some at-bats.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Orioles are not pursuing Twins' catcher Kurt Suzuki.

CBS Sports' Jon Heyman reported a few days ago that the O's and Cardinals were showing trade interest in Suzuki, but Baltimore apparently feels content with their in-house options. St. Louis might also be out as an option after their recent addition of A.J. Pierzynski.
