Punto, who missed the previous two games, has a sprained ankle with light swelling, team spokesman Mike Herman said.
The Twins were off on Monday and open a three-game series in Seattle on Tuesday. Punto will make the trip and could return sometime during that series. After signing a two-year contract in the offseason, Punto has struggled at the start of the season, hitting just .132, but has played strong defense.
Luis Rodriguez will likely start in Punto's place until the ankle heals. Rodriguez went 0-for-3 while playing third base Sunday in a loss to Tampa Bay.
