Right Field - Minnesota Twins
Height: 6' 0"
Date of Birth: December 4, 1992 (28 years old)
Twins' Jake Cave: Sitting out series opener
Cave is out of the lineup for Tuesday's game against the Red Sox.With a southpaw (Martin Perez) on the bump, the lefty-hitting Cave's absence from the lineup comes as little surprise, but the 28-year-old outfielder looks set to lose out on work versus right-handed pitching in the near future, too. The Twins are expected to activate everyday third baseman Josh Donaldson (hamstring) from the injured list at some point this week, which would likely result in Luis Arraez taking over for Cave as the top option in left field.
Twins' Jake Cave: Joins starting lineup
Cave is starting Wednesday's game against the Tigers.Cave was a late addition to the starting nine after Brent Rooker (neck) was placed on the 10-day injured list Wednesday. He'll play left field and bat ninth against Detroit.
Twins' Jake Cave: Starts second straight game
Cave will start in left field and bat sixth Sunday against the Brewers.Cave looks to be the major beneficiary from Josh Donaldson's (hamstring) move to the injured list Saturday. With Donaldson on the shelf, Luis Arraez is expected to serve as the Twins' primary third baseman, leaving left field open for Cave. He'll be making his second straight start after going 0-for-2 while reaching on a hit by a pitch in Saturday's 2-0 win.
