Twins sent OF Rene Tosoni outright to Triple-A Rochester.

Twins optioned OF Rene Tosoni to Triple-A Rochester.

Tosoni went 1-for-15 with three walks and three strikeouts this spring in the Grapefruit League. It wasn't enough to earn him a spot on the Opening Day bench.

Rene Tosoni hit a grand slam off Vin Mazzaro in the sixth inning Tuesday to push the Twins to a 7-4 win over the Royals.

With a victory on Wednesday, the Twins will avoid a 100-loss season. Tosoni has hit two homers over the last three games, but make no mistake: He has no business DH'ing for a major league team as he did Tuesday night. He's batting a putrid .202/.276/.345 through 168 at-bats despite riding an eight-game hitting streak. Tosoni figures to be right on the borderline to hold on to a spot on the Twins' 40-man roster this winter. The 25-year-old doesn't project as even a platoon option, and he probably doesn't offer enough defensively to stick as a bench player.

Rene Tosoni went 3-for-4 and delivered a game-winning double for the Twins in the bottom of the ninth Thursday against the Mariners.

Tosoni knocked in Trevor Plouffe to end a 3-2 game. It was his first three-hit game as a major leaguer, and it raised his average from .174 to .190. He figures to be right on the borderline to hold on to a spot on the Twins' 40-man roster this winter. The 25-year-old doesn't project as a regular, and he probably doesn't offer enough defensively to stick as a bench player.

Rene Tosoni returned to action as a pinch-hitter on Monday, flying out to third base in the eighth inning.

Tosoni missed Sunday's game with the flu. Of course, with a .164 batting average through 146 at-bats -- and with one hit in his last 28 at-bats -- another day off couldn't hurt.

Rene Tosoni is not available Sunday due to flu-like symptoms.

The bug is making its way around the Twins, as Justin Morneau and Danny Valencia are also known to the dealing with the illness. Tosoni should be OK in a day or two.
