The news comes as it was announced the Twins Nelson Cruz will not be in Wednesday's lineup against the A's.

He is hitting .282 with three home runs over his last 10 games. Marwin Gonzalez starts at designated hitter, batting third.

The line has moved down as much as 30 cents off the -140 to -110.

The streaking Oakland Athletics have played their way into a wild-card spot in the American League and maintained it with a hard-fought victory in the series opener. Oakland hopes to keep its hold on the berth and extend its winning streak to five games when it hosts the AL Central-leading Minnesota Twins on Wednesday for the middle contest of their three-game set.

PITCHING MATCHUP: Twins RH Kyle Gibson (8-4, 4.21 ERA) vs. Athletics RH Mike Fiers (8-3, 4.01)

Gibson is coming off the first relief appearance of his major-league career, an outing on Thursday in which he recorded one strikeout over a perfect inning against Tampa Bay in a game that lasted 18 innings. The 31-year-old native of Indiana defeated the Rays two days earlier despite yielding four runs and seven hits in seven frames. Gibson is 2-2 with a 4.03 ERA in four career starts against the Athletics.

Fiers extended his unbeaten streak to 10 starts on Friday, when he recorded his sixth win in that span after allowing one run and six hits over 6 2/3 innings on the road against the Los Angeles Angels. The 34-year-old Floridian has given up one earned run in each of his last three turns and fewer than three in 12 straight outings following a string of three consecutive starts with six allowed. Fiers owns a 6-1 record and 2.77 ERA in 11 career games (10 starts) against Minnesota.

Oakland has won eight of the last ten meetings between these two teams.

Had Fiers lost in his last start, we might consider the Athletics.  But Fiers is due for a lackluster performance upcoming, so this one simply doesn't meet our requirement for a pick.
