Phil Miller covered three seasons of Twins baseball, but that was at a different ballpark for a different newspaper. Now Miller returns to the baseball beat after joining the Star Tribune as the Gopher football writer in 2010, and he won't miss the dingy dome for a minute. In addition to the Twins and Gophers, Miller covered the Utah Jazz and the NBA for six years at The Salt Lake Tribune.

Postgame: Twins acquire Jeremy Reed, option Plouffe, promote Dinkelman

KANSAS CITY, MO. -- The Twins have acquired minor-league outfielder Jeremy Reed from the Brewers for future considerations and will assign him to Class AAA Rochester, the Star Tribune has learned

The Twins also made several roster moves after Thursday's game, and Reed is a distant part of the domino effect.

* Brian Dinkelman was promoted from Rochester as a left-handed bat off the Twins bench, with Trevor Plouffe getting sent back to Rochester.

* To add Dinkelman to the 40-man roster, the Twins moved Joe Mauer to the 60-day disabled list. Mauer would be eligible to return on June 12.

* Reed was acquired, in part, to give the depleted Rochester roster some help with all these players coming to the majors. He has major league experience with the Mariners, Mets, Blue Jays and Brewers.
