Twins Reinstate Alexi Casilla, Option Jeff Manship

Infielder Alexi Casilla was placed on the disabled list back on June 1st with elbow soreness. Shortly after, Casilla had surgery to remove bone spurs. Nearly seven weeks following his assignment to the disabled list, Casilla has been reinstated to the Twins’ active roster.

Twins optioned RHP Jeff Manship to Rochester after today’s game and activated INF Alexi Casilla from the DL.

In 29 games this season (only 39 official at-bats), Casilla is hitting .256 with a .370 on-base percentage. Manship, who is headed back to Triple-A, threw two scoreless innings in his short stay with the club.
