The Twins will have to submit their 25-man roster for Tuesday night's game on Tuesday morning. Molitor said he'll go with 10 or 11 pitchers. Berrios, presumably, is pitching in relief Friday vs. Detroit, so he's in a position to help the Twins out of the 'pen vs. New York or Boston.

Boston's magic number to win the East is 1. In other words, Twins vs. New York Tuesday night at 7 p.m. is the more likely scenario.

As for Sano, Molitor plans on getting him an at-bat Friday, then hopes to have him in the lineup as the designated hitter on Saturday.

If this weekend goes well, Sano could be in the lineup next Tuesday.
