Twins activate 3B Sano from DL, option Cave to Triple-A
To make room on the 25-man roster, Minnesota optioned outfielder Jake Cave to Triple-A Rochester.
Sano, who has missed the Twins’ last 24 games with a left hamstring strain, mashed three homers and hit for a .375 average in five games with Rochester. He also compiled three RBI and three walks.
In 20 games with the Twins this season, Sano has five homers and a .213/.289/.450 slash line.
Cave appeared in three games with Minnesota and notched his first career MLB hit — a home run — on May 19.
