A's Vs. Twins Lineups: Matt Chapman Returns After Missing Two Games

The A's got a bit of good news Saturday as All-Star third baseman Matt Chapman is back in the lineup against the Minnesota Twins.

Chapman started the series-finale against the Mariners on Wednesday, but came in out in the third inning due to left ankle soreness. He didn't start the first two games in Minnesota.

Franklin Barreto will get the start at second base over Jurickson Profar.

Brett Anderson takes the mound for the A's, and he looks to continue his recent string of solid starts. The veteran lefty has a 1.74 ERA in 20 2/3 innings over his last three starts.

But the A's will have to deal with one of the best pitchers in the American League as Jose Berrios gets the ball for the Twins. The two-time All-Star has a 3.10 ERA this season, fifth best in the AL.

Here are the full lineups for the A's-Twins game, which will be broadcast on NBC Sports California and the MyTeams app. Coverage begins at 3:30 p.m. PT, with first pitch at 4:10.
