Date:

Buddy Boshers will be recalled from Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

He'll take the roster spot vacated by Hector Santiago, who will be away from the team while he attends his grandmother's funeral. Under normal circumstances the Twins would have to keep Boshers in the minors for at least 10 days (he was optioned to Rochester after Sunday's game), but that rule is being waived because Santiago is going on the bereavement list. Boshers tossed 2 1/3 scoreless innings in his only outing for the Twins this year.
