The Minnesota Twins' continued roster changes are finally starting to pay off.

This week saw the Major League debut of shortstop Brian Dozier and the season debuts of Scott Diamond, P.J. Walters and Darin Mastroianni.

Each played well when called upon, combining with the surviving Twins roster for a 3-4 record at Target Field this week.

The week started with Jered Weaver and the Angels defeating the Twins twice in three games, followed by Jose Bautista and the Blue Jays splitting four with the hometown nine.

As always, there were positives and negatives.

Leadoff hitter Denard Span finally scored a run on Friday, breaking a dumbfounding streak of nine straight games played without crossing home plate.

However, Carl Pavano pitched only four innings in a 6-2 loss to the Angels on Wednesday and had to have an MRI on his shoulder, which revealed inflammation and a bruised ego.

Let's now take a closer look at the past week and reward the Twins best and worst performances.
