Though Gsellman’s ERA still sits at 5.98, he was encouraged last time out -- 5 1/3 innings, three runs -- in his first start back from the disabled list. For as long as Seth Lugo is sidelined with a shoulder injury, Gsellman should keep starting.

Godley's last start against the Twins was a mixed bag. He allowed four runs, two of which came on home runs, but he also struck out 10. The Twins made Godley work for his outs and he did not have his usual command.
