Rookie Ronald Guzman hit a three-run homer while Nomar Marzara, Adrian Beltre and Rougned Odor hit solo homers.The Twins have been utilizing the “opener” strategy for months at both the Double-A and Triple-A levels. Minnesota decided to push back right-hander Kyle Gibson’s start to Monday in Houston to try the strategy because the Rangers have a left-handed top of their batting order.The “opener” is employed to keep the game’s primary pitcher from facing the top of the lineup early and to be limited to two times through the order.“You don’t want to do it on a whim,” Twins manager Paul Molitor told MLB.com. “There’s always going to be a risk, and then you try to decide in the game when it’s worthwhile to try to find out if this is something that’s going to be helpful to help your team win. You’re looking for an advantage.”The Rangers activated pitcher Bartolo Colon off the disabled list Saturday, but then scratched him from Sunday’s start against the Twins because of a stomach virus. Colon hasn’t pitched since Aug. 20 because of stiffness in his back. The 45-year-old is a free agent after this season.The 23-year-old Mendez is set to be recalled Sunday to make his second start and third appearance of 2018. He has never faced Minnesota.Mendez is being brought back to the big leagues for the first time since June 19, when he was demoted to Class A after violating team rules in Kansas City.“He took the challenges with the right attitude Ferguson Jenkins Jersey , went back down, and he’s going to get an opportunity to come back up tomorrow and start for us,” Texas manager Jeff Banister said of Mendez.The Rangers are satisfied that Mendez has done everything asked of him since the demotion.“Reports I got were that he worked his rear end off, physically and mentally, and took all the challenges and met all of them, even when they were a little bit tough,” Banister said. “The thing that I like about our coaching staff and this organization is that things like that happen. (But if) you go do your work, you’re given that opportunity to clean that slate http://www.rangersfanproshop.com/authentic-jason-grilli-jersey , go do what you need to do.”Mendez exited his last start for Triple-A Round Rock on Tuesday at home against Memphis after two innings when he was struck on his left arm by a batted ball. He is expected to be fully healthy for Sunday’s start. Adam Glanzman/Getty ImagesBoston Red Sox star J.D. Martinez stood behind a 2013 Instagram post that attributed a fake quote to Adolf Hitler.The post included a picture of Hitler that read: "To conquer a nation, First disarm it's citizens."TheNew York Daily News' Kate Feldman provided a screenshot of the post:Kate Feldman kateefeldmanI just...what... Jf1gxgzOpq"I posted it," Martinez said Tuesday of the story, per USA Today's Scott Boeck. "I love my country. I love this country. I stand by the Constitution and I stand by the Second Amendment and it's something that I take pride in. It's something that I'll back up.At the time I posted that, the Second Amendment at the time was definitely a hot topic.The point of it wasn't to offend anybody."Chad Amaral of Boston 25 News shared Martinez's full comments from Tuesday:Chad Amaral Chad_AmaralJD Martinez on controversial Instagram post quot;Im here to play baseball guys, Im not a politician.... Im here to help us win...It was something that happened 6 years ago....thats why I dont talk about politics I dont want this distraction.quot; OmkfDElaNrChad Amaral Chad_AmaralJD Martinez addresses controversial Instagram post quot;The point of it wasnt to offend anyone, as most of you guys know Im Cuban American and most of my family was run out of Cuba by a brutal dictator.quot; BfgpbLESPYThe post predates Martinez's tenure with the Red Sox, which started this offseason when he signed afive-year Ryan Rua Jersey , $110 millioncontract. Still, Red Sox team president Sam Kennedy told theBoston Herald'sSteve Buckleythe team had addressed the situation with Martinez.Kennedy said the Red Sox "work with our players regularly to reinforce that their social media interactions can be interpreted in ways that are unintended."Controversy about his past social media habits aside, Martinez is having an incredibly successful debut season in Boston.He's batting.338 with 38 home runs, 110 RBI and a .656 slugging percentage, and his 5.4 WAR is tied for seventh-best among MLB position players, perFanGraphs.The Red Sox need that production to continue as they look to remain on top in the American League East and avoid the wild-card game in the postseason.
