Another game, another injury.....

The Twins will hit the halfway point of the season after this weekend’s home series with the Milwaukee Brewers. With high expectations coming out of spring training, this year’s team has struggled to overcome a slew of injuries that has left many wondering if it’s even possible to recover and salvage the season.

While injuries have played a major part in the Twins' struggles, they can’t be seen as the sole reason for the team's lack of success.

Early season issues in the starting rotation, a patchwork bullpen and a lack of pop in the lineup have been just a few of the problems this team encountered, leading to a 16-33 start through the first two months. And while things seem to have turned around as of late (17-12 in June,) the Twins still have a long climb ahead of them if they are to get back in the race for the AL Central crown.

Midway through the year, it’s report card time. In this slideshow, we’ll grade the performance of the starting rotation, bullpen and everyday lineup and tell you what needs to happen for the Twins to get back into contention in 2011.
