"We'll talk," Gardenhire said. "I'll have a conversation with him. We're bringing up enough people up here to protect some of the guys bullpen-wise, all those things."
The Twins are expected to bring up a handful of position players, with top candidates including catchers Josmil Pinto and Chris Herrmann, infielder Pedro Florimon and outfielder Aaron Hicks. Minnesota will also bring up a few relievers for the stretch run with options such as Michael Tonkin, Stephen Pryor and Kris Johnson.
"We'll have arms," Gardenhire said. "We're calling up a few."
