Twins welcome break in schedule on Mondays

KANSAS CITY -- For the entire month of June, Monday will be a day of rest for the Twins.

The schedule sets up nicely with four consecutive Mondays off. The Twins will have to pay a price for that with a more rigorous schedule in July and August.

"You just enjoy it while you can," manager Ron Gardenhire said.

Gardenhire isn't currently planning any pitching rotation alterations for June.

"We'll just take that day by day," Gardenhire said. "I'd like to keep them right in line as they are right now. Six days between starts? That's not a bad thing. We'll just see how it goes. If we feel like we need to do something we can do it. We need these guys to pitch. Skipping them may not be the right thing. We just have to see how they go."
