CHICAGO -- The Twins shuffled their lineup against the White Sox on Wednesday, as Joe Mauer moved up into the two-hole while Kurt Suzuki slid down to bat seventh with right-hander Felipe Paulino on the mound.
Suzuki hit second in the first game of the season on Wednesday, going 2-for-4 with three RBIs, but Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said the lineup is still a work in progress.
"We're going to move him up and down the lineup, and we're going to move our lineup around an awful lot," Gardenhire said. "We're going to change it up."
"Suzuki is our starter, so he's going to catch a lot of games," Gardenhire said. "Pinto is going to play a lot, too. So we'll get Pinto into a lot of ballgames."
