Bullpen a bright spot in Twins' slow start
MINNEAPOLIS -- While starting pitching has been a major issue for the Twins, the bullpen has been one of the few bright spots this season.

Twins relievers have combined for a 3.49 ERA in 111 innings entering Sunday's game against the Blue Jays. The 3.49 ERA ranks as the 12th-best mark in the Majors.

The bullpen has been so good that Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said that he's finding it tough to send a reliever down despite having 13 pitchers on the staff.

"They've been fantastic," Gardenhire said. "We've been talking about it all morning. We had some meetings about how to get down to 12 pitchers and get another position player, but if you look at our bullpen, there's no one deserving of going anywhere. They're all throwing the ball fantastic."
