"It's not a setback," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "You're going to have those up-and-down days." Fuld is eligible to come off the 7-day concussion disabled list on Thursday, but that's extremely unlikely. He'll need to be symptom-free for a couple of days before the Twins will consider reinstating him.

Sam Fuld went 3-for-5 with two doubles and two RBI in the Twins' 9-7 takedown of the Rays on Thursday.

Fuld's Twins career is off to an amazing start. This is a guy who didn't have a single double in 176 at-bats for the Rays last year. He also went 30 at-bats without one in Oakland this season. However, since being claimed by the Twins, he has three in two games. Expect him to remain in the lineup against right-handers for the foreseeable future, giving him a little AL-only value.
