The Minnesota Twins have activated designated hitter Jim Thome from the disabled list, optioning outfielder Rene Tosoni back to Triple-A Rochester to make room.
In 94 plate appearances this season, Thome -- who has played in only eight games since April 30 -- owns a .237/.372/.447 batting line with four home runs.
Tosoni saw limited playing time, but he came up with a key hit in last Sunday's win over the San Diego Padres.
