The Twins have designated outfielder Erik Komatsu for assignment, according to a team press release. The move allowed the club to recall right-hander Jeff Manship from Triple-A Rochester.
Komatsu, 24, was DFA’d by the Cardinals earlier this month and quickly claimed by the Twins. The outfielder appeared in 15 games for each club in 2012. Komatsu hit .277/.367/.382 last season in Double-A and has never played at the Triple-A level.
