First baseman Joe Mauer faced Estrada seven times in his career and has three hits and three RBI against him. Josh Willingham and Aaron Hicks are the only two Twins who have hit home runs off of the right-hander.

Nolasco has been more hittable than he ever has been in his career this season, giving up 86 hits in 66.1 innings of work.
