MINNEAPOLIS -- The Twins will place outfielder Wilkin Ramirez on the paternity list Sunday, the club announced after Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Mets.

Ramirez, who is hitting .200 in five games this season, is heading to New York to attend the birth of his second child.

The club will wait to announce the corresponding roster move to replace Ramirez, as Sunday's game could be postponed because of weather.

Ramirez can be away from the club for a maximum of three days under the rules of Major League Baseball's paternity list.
