Al Central Watch: July 5

Here’s a quick glance at what’s happening around the American League Central.

The red-hot Twins are getting offensive contributions from everyone. The Twins scratched second baseman Alexi Casilla from the lineup Friday because of a sore left middle finger.

Shortsop Edgar renteria continues to struggle and the Tigers are back to .500. The pitching-thin Tigers are mulling the idea of moving hard-throwing setup man Joel Zumaya to their rotation. Lynn Henning takes a closer look at the dreaded oblique injury, something that has hit the Tigers particularly hard this season.

Though the Indians appear on the verge of dealing ace C.C. Sabathia for a crop of young talent, general manager Mark Shapiro insists the Tribe is not about to undergo a major rebuilding.
