The Twins may activate two position players from the 60-day DL this week in Joe Mauer and Tsuyoshi Nishioka. Since the team's 40-man roster is full, they will have to clear two spots.
Jesse Lund of Twinkie Town tackled the issue this morning, providing his informed speculation. Lund seems to be leaning toward catcher Rene Rivera as one player who will be designated for assignment, a logical choice. The other player will probably be a position player as well, so Jason Repko and a few others are on notice. The Twins don't have a strong candidate to be transferred to the 60-day DL, and this isn't the ideal time to trade Kevin Slowey, who is recovering from an abdominal strain.
