NBC SportsMax Kepler and Byron Buxton are out of the lineup Wednesday for the first game of the doubleheader against the White Sox.

It looks like the Twins want everyone to get a start today, so Manuel Margot is in the lineup for the first time since last Thursday. This is the first time all season that Kepler has been out of the lineup against a righty for non-injury reasons.

NBC SportsMatt Wallner went 2-for-4 with a double and a two-run home run against the White Sox on Monday.

Wallner was in left field with Max Kepler in right field and Trevor Larnach at designated hitter in Wallner's first game since being recalled from Triple-A. Wallner's home run was his second of the season. He hit a two-run shot off Jordan Leasure in the seventh inning. It was a loud return for Wallner as his home run was hit 116.7 mph off the bat and he also had a double. He looked like the player who had 14 home runs, 41 RBI and an .877 OPS in 76 games for the Twins last year. Wallner should see regular playing time against right-handed pitching going forward.

NBC SportsBobby Nightengale of the Minneapolis Star Tribune notes that the Twins are expected to promote Matt Wallner from Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday.

The 26-year-old outfielder doesn't have much left to prove at the Triple-A level -- as he has slashed .259/.343/.544 with 19 homers, 53 RBI and five stolen bases in 67 games this season. What's unclear is how exactly Wallner will fit into their lineup plans. In terms of skillset and defensive versatility, the Twins already have two very similar players on the roster in Max Kepler and Trevor Larnach. Stay tuned.
