The Twins have designated OF Jason Kubel for assignment to make room on the roster for the recently-signed Kendrys Morales, Tyler Mason of FOX Sports North reports. Kubel, 32, slashed .224/.313/.295 with one home run in 176 plate appearances. He is sad to leave Minnesota:

Yesterday, the Twins signed the 30-year-old Morales to a one-year deal for the prorated portion of $12 million.

You don’t see this every day …

Twins second baseman Brian Dozier hit a blast to dead-center field in the first inning of Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Tigers and it neither cleared the fence, nor banged off the fence, nor dropped in front of it.

Instead, the ball found a comfortable home inside the wall …

This isn’t the first wall-sticker for Dozier. He put a ball in the bullpen fence in Washington during an exhibition game against the Nationals back in 2016.
