Florimon scheduled to return Monday

FORT MYERS, Fla. -- Twins shortstop Pedro Florimon is expected to rejoin the big league club for Monday's trip to Sarasota, Fla., to face the Orioles after making another successful appearance Sunday in a Minor League game.

Florimon, who had his appendix removed on Feb. 17, went 1-for-5 with a triple, an RBI and two strikeouts over five innings at shortstop in Sunday's game at the Minor League camp. He also played three innings in a Minor League game on Friday before resting Saturday.

"He looked fine," said assistant general manager Rob Antony, who watched some of Florimon's appearance on a side field at Hammond Stadium. "It still looks like he's trying to get his timing down, which is to be expected."
