Twins reinstate outfielder Wilkin Ramirez from DL

MINNEAPOLIS -- After missing 69 games with a concussion, Twins outfielder Wilkin Ramirez has been reinstated from the 15-day disabled list. He was activated prior to Monday’s game against Cleveland at Target Field.

Ramirez last played May 25 and appeared in just 23 major league games this year prior to sustaining a concussion. The 27-year-old Ramirez batted .244 with five RBI and three doubles. He started in just 10 games and was also used as a pinch hitter and defensive replacement.

In 14 minor league games as part of his rehab assignment with both High-A Fort Myers, Double-A New Britain and the Gulf Coast League Twins, Ramirez was 9-for-49 (.184).

Ramirez was not in the lineup Monday for the series opener against the Indians. The Twins had an open roster spot for Ramirez when they traded utility infielder Jamey Carroll to the Royals on Sunday.
