DETROIT -- Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he received positive medical reports on third baseman Trevor Plouffe on Sunday.

Plouffe was placed on the seven-day disabled list with concussion-like symptoms Wednesday after being kneed in the head by Dan Uggla while trying to break up a double play Tuesday.

He is expected to be activated the first day he is eligible if all continues to go well. Plouffe is eligible to make his return Wednesday, when the Twins return home to host the Brewers.

"He's doing everything and feels great, so by the time we get home he should be activated," Gardenhire said. "So we'll see what we have to do then."
