Liriano, Casilla Pulled From Game In Detroit

With the Twins trailing 2-0 in their game at Detroit, both starting pitcher Francisco Liriano and shortstop Alexi Casilla were pulled from the game by manager Ron Gardenhire.

Jim Souhan of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune is reporting that both players are having stomach trouble. No word as to whether or not it is due to a "bad plantain," as Souhan has attributed it to.

If this develops any further, we'll update you. As of now, it appears to be a minor issue for both players.
