MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -The Minnesota Twins recalled outfielder Garrett Jones from Triple-A Rochester on Friday to replace pitcher Ramon Ortiz.
Ortiz was traded Wednesday to Colorado.
Jones, who played briefly with the Twins earlier this season, was hitting .283 with 13 home runs at Rochester.
The Twins also assigned left-hander Glen Perkins Double-A New Britain to begin a rehab assignment. He has been out most of the season because of a strained left shoulder.
