Minnesota Twins third baseman Josh Donaldson is not in the starting lineup for Wednesday afternoon's series finale against right-hander Wily Peralta and the Detroit Tigers.
Donaldson is getting a maintenance day after playing in back-to-back extra-inning games on Monday and Tuesday. Willians Astudillo is covering third base while Miguel Sano plays first and Max Kepler covers the designated hitter role. Trevor Larnach is making a start in right field and hitting fifth.
