Tony Batista, the Twins' Opening Day starter at third base last season, was recently called up from the minors and is batting .316. ... Both Jason Simontacchi and Levale Speigner pitched in the Twins' minor league system. ... Nationals righthander John Patterson has been out since May 6 because of a pinched nerve in his throwing arm.
