His season is obviously over, and he'll struggle to make it back to full health before the All-Star break next year.

Matt Maloney struck out three in two scoreless innings of relief Wednesday against the Tigers.

Having thrown 9 1/3 scoreless innings and struck out 13 batters, Maloney has made a strong bid for a spot in Minnesota's bullpen. Keep an eye on him; he's not nearly this much of a strikeout pitcher, but his major weakness -- a tendency to give up long flies -- won't hurt him nearly as much in Target Field as it used to in Cincinnati.
