Minnesota Twins Activate Trevor Plouffe, Demote Chris Herrmann

Attached Image: Plouffe.jpg The Minnesota Twins have announced that they will activate third baseman Trevor Plouffe in time for Saturday night's game. To make room for him on the 25-man roster, they optioned Chris Herrmann to AAA-Rochester.

Plouffe has been out of the lineup since he suffered a concussion on May 21st when he was hit in the head with a knee while sliding into second base. He had been placed on the 7-day concussion disabled list, and activated back on 5/29, but suffered a calf injury in warmups and was put on the 15-day DL. After recovering, he's been playing in Rochester since Monday. His return adds a right-handed bat to the Twins lefty leaning lineup, and a decent one at that. At the time of his initial injury, Plouffe was hitting .254 with a 758 OPS.

Chris Herrmann will return to Rochester after being called up on 5/26. He served as the team's third catcher and backup center fielder, with six hits (and his first major league home run) in sixteen at-bats. Herrmann is an interesting choice, as the Twins are adding an infielder but losing a catcher/outfielder. It also isn't clear what options they'll have as a backup to Clete Thomas in center field, should they need one.
