Lewis Thorpe was recalled from Class AAA Rochester by the Twins today.

The lefthanded reliever is with the big club for the third time this season. In four games, he is 1-1 with a 3.18 ERA.

Devin Smeltzer was sent to the Red Wings last night after a four-inning save in a victory over the Rangers.

The Twins and Rangers play again today (7:05 p.m., FSN) with Jake Odorizzi (13-5, 3.44 ERA) facing Rangers All-Star lefty Mike Minor (11-6, 2.90).

Pregame reading:

Texas hurt itself, and helped Smeltzer, with strange baserunning last night. And Willians Astudillo started his rehab assignment in style. Finally, here's Randball on Luis Arraez's amazing season.

Mitch Garver, C

Luis Arraez, LF

Jorge Polanco, DH

Miguel Sano, 3B

Max Kepler, CF

C.J. Cron, 1B
