Tim Stauffer (intercostal) struggled in his minor league rehab outing with Triple-A Rochester on Sunday, allowing three runs on four hits in 1 1/3 innings.

He had been scheduled to work three innings in the contest. It's assumed that the early departure was due to the elevated pitch count from his struggles, rather than a recurrence of his injury. He's expected to rejoin the Twins bullpen before the end of May.

Stauffer has been in the mix for a rotation spot so far this spring, but the Twins believe he's a better fit in relief. He's probably a better bet to hold up that way. The 32-year-old signed a one-year, $2.2 million deal with Minnesota over the winter.
