3B Danny Valencia could be recalled at the end of the week if the Twins need a third baseman to replace Trevor Plouffe, who is nursing a bruised right thumb. Valencia is hitting .249 in 66 games at Class AAA Rochester. "His numbers are not exactly going to indicate that, 'Oh, he's a lock to get back, he's pushed himself back up,'" GM Terry Ryan said. "If we've got a third baseman that goes down, obviously Danny would be the ideal choice to come back. Once we get to a situation where we have to start considering it, we'll call down there to see what those guys have to say."
