Twins Roster Moves: Chris Parmelee Might Return To Minneapolis

The Minnesota Twins made a few moves on Wednesday following their most recent loss, activating one pitcher while sending a pair to play at Triple-A Rochester. That of course leaves one roster move left and, apparently, it'll be for a position player rather than a pitcher.

That's simply speculation right now considering the resulting move has yet to take place, but manager Ron Gardenhire made it pretty clear while talking to the Star Tribune that a position player is going to be moving up to the big club.

"It will be a position player," Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said. "We're going to get that extra position player back on the bench and go with 12 pitchers."

The leading candidate to be called up is Chris Parmelee, who is blazing hot at Rochester. He entered Wednesday batting .354 with 15 homers and 41 RBI in 49 games for the Red Wings.

Parmelee could be counted on to fill in both out in the outfield -- switching things around to account for Denard Span's absence -- or at first break if the Twins want to give either Justin Mauer or Joe Morneau a quick breather.
