Quotable

"We got the win, but we took a beating doing it."

Twins Manager Ron Gardenhire, after three of his players were injured

Personnel Dept.

Devil Rays: Reinstated RHP Dewon Brazelton more than three weeks after he disappeared following a demotion to AAA Durham.

Brazelton is scheduled to work out at the Raymond A. Naimoli Complex in St. Petersburg, Fla., but neither the team nor Brazelton has issued an explanation for the absence. The club has made no decision on when or where Brazelton will report.

Indians: Activated OF Coco Crisp from the 15-day disabled list. Placed OF Juan Gonzalez (hamstring) on the 15-day DL.

Twins: Placed 2B Nick Punto on the 15-day DL after he pulled his right hamstring while trying to steal second base. Recalled IF Terry Tiffee from Class AAA Rochester. . . .

1B Justin Morneau is listed as day-to-day after tweaking his left elbow while hitting balls off a tee before the game. . . .

C Joe Mauer aggravated a groin strain that kept him out last month. He was removed from the lineup in the 12th inning.
