The Minnesota Twins announced today that they have returned infielder Royce Lewis from his rehab assignment and reinstated him from the 10-day Injured List.
Lewis, who missed the Twins’ last 36 games with a left oblique strain, played in four games on rehab assignment with Triple-A St. Paul, going 5-for-12 (.417) with two home runs, three RBI, three walks and four runs scored. Lewis has played in 26 games for the Twins this season, hitting .326 (31-for-95) with two doubles, four home runs, 15 RBI, 11 runs scored, a .354 on-base percentage and an .827 OPS.
To make room for Lewis on the 26-man roster, the Twins have placed utility player Willi Castro on the 10-day Injured List with a mild left oblique strain (retroactive to August 12). Castro has played in 101 games for the Twins this season, hitting .241 (67-for-278) with 15 doubles, three triples, five home runs, 26 RBI, 42 runs scored, 24 walks, 29 stolen bases and a .322 on-base percentage.
