Twins option Colabello to Triple-A Rochester


MINNEAPOLIS -- Chris Colabello was optioned to Triple-A Rochester after Sunday's 10-0 win over the Mariners.

The Twins will make a corresponding roster move before Tuesday's game in Kansas City against the Royals.

Colabello is 2-for-15 this year in six games with starts at first base, right field and designated hitter. The 29-year-old hit .358 with 12 homers and 39 RBIs in 46 games with Triple-A Rochester before being called up for the first time on May 22.

Colabello was optioned to Rochester on Wednesday, but was called right back up on Thursday, when Trevor Plouffe was placed on the 15-day disabled list with a left hamstring strain.

Outfielder Oswaldo Arcia is a candidate to be recalled from Rochester, but is nursing a sore shoulder that has limited him to designated hitter duty this week. Outfielder Wilkin Ramirez, who is on the 7-day concussion DL, is not expected to be activated on Tuesday, as he's still feeling symptoms and isn't accompanying the Twins on their six-game road trip to Kansas City and Washington.
