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.

Twins recall Manship from AAA Rochester, option Tolbert

Posted by: Phil Miller under Twins transactions Updated: May 18, 2010 - 8:11 PM

The Twins announced tonight that they have optioned infielder Matt Tolbert back to Class AAA Rochester and recalled righthanded pitcher Jeff Manship, giving them an extra pitcher for the Boston series.

With shortstop J.J. Hardy expected to be activated from the disabled list on Friday, the Twins will likely will trim a pitcher again in a couple days. But with the bullpen taxed, Manship gives them an extra reliever for the next two games against the Red Sox, at least.

La Velle is traveling from Toronto to Boston tonight, so I just wanted to get the word out. He'll have more Wednesday from Fenway Park.
