Mijares Back, Ramos to AAA
Jose Mijares has been activated from the DL, and he will be back for the Yankees series this weekend. He had an inauspicious rehab assignment, giving up 5 runs on 6 hits in 1.2 innings for AAA Rochester.
To make room, the Twins will send down Wilson Ramos. Ramos went 8-27 and had a .323 wOBA in his time with the Twins. Ramos getting sent down is good news because it: gives him a chance to play every day and develop, gives him a chance to play every day to build up a lot of trade value and most importantly it signals that Joe Mauer is healthy enough to assume the catching load again.
One plea to Joe and Gardy though: I know Drew Butera sucks, but let him catch day games after night games please. Thanks.
