Twins Activate Starter; Option Reliever To Triple-A

Slowly but surely, the Minnesota Twins are starting to get healthy. One day after welcoming Joe Ryan back to the lineup, another key rotation piece, Sonny Gray, is back on the mound.

Gray started Wednesday afternoon's game in Seattle, after being out since late May due to a right pectoral strain. And all he did was toss five shutout innings, allowing just three hits, while striking out three.

That leaves Gray with a 2.09 ERA, and a 42:10 K:BB ratio, while holding opponents to a meager .187 batting average.

Making room for Gray, the Twins have optioned left-hander Jovani Moran to Triple-A St. Paul.

The 25-year-old fared quite well in his eight relief appearances for Minnesota, posting a 1.74 ERA over 10.1 innings with 15 strikeouts, and one save.
