The Twins on Friday activated shortstop Danny Santana from the 15-day disabled list. To make room for Santana on the active roster, the team optioned Chris Herrmann to Triple-A Rochester.
Santana was on a rehab stint at Class A-Advanced Fort Myers after he had a bone bruise in his left knee. He was hurt in a June 25 game against the Angels while running the bases on a double. He played in just three rehab games with the Miracle, including two starts in center field and one at shortstop.
The Twins have more options at shortstop than in center field, so it's likely he'll play at least some outfield on the 10-game homestand. The Twins host the Rays on Friday at Target Field.
Herrmann appeared in one game for the Twins during his recent stint. He went 1-for-1 with an RBI on July 13 at Colorado.
