Manship likely to start for ailing Pavano
CLEVELAND -- Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said right-hander Jeff Manship is the favorite to start against the Royals on Wednesday if right-hander Carl Pavano can't make his scheduled start.

Pavano flew back to Minneapolis on Sunday, and is scheduled to have a second MRI exam taken on his right shoulder by team physician Dr. Dan Buss on Monday. He remains a likely candidate to be placed on the disabled list, as he's been bothered by a strain in the front of his throwing shoulder all season.

"Manship's ready to do it, and we'll talk with the general manager and assistant general manager and we'll get it figured out," Gardenhire said. "We'll have a starter."

Manship, 27, has made one relief appearance for the Twins this season, allowing one run on one hit in 1 1/3 innings against the A's on Tuesday. He had a 3.08 ERA with 25 strikeouts and 15 walks in 38 innings with Triple-A Rochester before being recalled on May 27.
