Brian Dozier isn't coming up to the big leagues to sit on the bench.
He'll be the Minnesota Twins' starting shortstop when he joins the team at Target Field on Monday, manager Ron Gardenhire said Sunday morning on 1500 ESPN.
Dozier, 24, entered Saturday hitting .273/.342/.374 with one home run and seven doubles in 112 plate appearances at Triple-A Rochester.
The Twins announced on Saturday they would recall Dozier and right-hander Scott Diamond, who is expected to replace Liam Hendriks in the rotation.
Hendriks likely will be sent back to Rochester, Gardenhire said.
