Twins Make Roster Moves

The Minnesota Twins have reinstated third baseman Trevor Plouffe and utilityman Eduardo Nunez from the disabled list.

The moves were made before Monday’s game against Kansas City. To make room on the roster, shortstops Pedro Florimon and Jorge Polanco were sent to the minors — Florimon to Triple-A Rochester and Polanco to Class A Fort Myers.

Plouffe and Nunez each missed 14 games after their injuries June 14 at Detroit. Plouffe hurt his rib cage and Nunez strained his right hamstring. Nunez played in four games on a rehab assignment with Triple-A Rochester.

Florimon went 0 for 11 in eight games since he was called up, dropping his career average to .204 in 624 major league at-bats.

Polanco went 2 for 5 over four games after making his major league debut.
