Continued: Gardenhire away for two games for funeral of Hirschbeck's son

The Twins will call up righthander Michael Tonkin from Class AAA Rochester to replace Willingham.

Since Willingham hasn’t fully recovered, the Twins will have him undergo a magnetic resonance imaging exam Saturday.

He will be placed on the DL retroactive to Sunday, the day he was hit by a pitch in Cleveland.

Tonkin was a late cut from spring training camp but made the Opening Day roster when Brian Duensing left on paternity leave. Tonkin returned to Rochester on April 3, and he was 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in 4⅔ innings there.

“The starters haven’t been going deep,” Antony said. “It made more sense to call up a pitcher than a position player.”

Bartlett on way back

Shortstop Jason Bartlett, on the 15-day DL because of a left ankle sprain, ran the bases before Friday’s game and said it went great, so he is headed to Fort Myers, Fla., to work out for a couple of days before beginning a rehabilitation assignment.
