  • Twins' Mark Contreras: Recalled from Triple-A

    Contreras was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Friday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    With Kyle Garlick moving to the injured list, Contreras will return to the big leagues. He's recorded a .801 OPS in 120 plate appearances since being optioned down in early August and will provide temporary depth to the Twins' outfield.

  • Twins' Mark Contreras: Optioned to Triple-A

    Contreras was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday.

    With Max Kepler (toe) returning to the roster, Contreras' latest stint in the majors has come to an end. Contreras has been on the shuttle back and forth for most of the season. He has a .710 OPS with St. Paul but just a .475 OPS in 12 big-league games.

  • Twins' Mark Contreras: Opens scoring with homer

    Contreras went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Blue Jays.

    Contreras hit his second homer in four games, both of which came in the third inning of those contests. Those long balls are his only hits through 16 at-bats in August, though he's started in five straight games as the Twins' outfield remains plagued by injuries. The 27-year-old is hitting .120 with four RBI and five runs scored through 26 plate appearances.

  • Twins' Mark Contreras: Hits first big-league homer

    Contreras went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Tigers.

    Contreras opened the scoring in the third inning with his first big-league homer in his ninth career game. The 27-year-old showed modest power in the minors, hitting 10 games in 73 contests at Triple-A St. Paul this year. With the Twins, he's batting .125 with three RBI and four runs scored in 17 plate appearances. Contreras is probably going to see inconsistent playing time while the Twins are short on outfield depth.

  • Twins' Mark Contreras: Optioned and recalled

    The Twins optioned Contreras to Triple-A St. Paul after Sunday's 3-2 loss to the Padres, then they recalled him ahead of Monday's game against the Tigers.

    Minnesota elected to reverse the transaction it made hours earlier due to the team requiring another depth option in the outfield with Gilberto Celestino (personal) landing on the paternity list Monday. Once Celestino likely rejoins the team Thursday, Contreras will presumably head back to St. Paul at that time.

  • Twins' Mark Contreras: Summoned from Triple-A

    The Twins recalled Contreras from Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday, Betsy Helfand of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

    Contreras was sent down by the Twins in late June, and he slashed .160/.220/.333 with three home runs, 12 RBI, 10 runs and four stolen bases over 21 minor-league games following his demotion. However, he'll provide additional outfield depth in the majors after Max Kepler (toe) was placed on the 10-day injured list.

  • Twins' Mark Contreras: Back in big leagues

    Contreras was recalled from Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday, Aaron Gleeman of The Athletic reports.

  • Twins' Mark Contreras: Sent down Monday

    Contreras was optioned to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday, Brandon Warne of Access Twins reports.

    The 27-year-old joined the Twins for their weekend series in Toronto while Max Kepler was on the restricted list. Contreras went 0-for-4 with an RBI and three strikeouts during his most recent stint with the big-league club but will head back to the minors after Kepler was activated Monday.

  • Twins' Mark Contreras: Reports back to minors

    The Twins optioned Contreras to Triple-A St. Paul on Monday.

    Though Minnesota hasn't announced a corresponding transaction, Contreras' demotion to the minors likely foreshadows Kyle Garlick's (calf) return from the 10-day injured list. After receiving his first career call-up Tuesday, Contreras saw action in two games, going 0-for-2 with a run scored and an RBI across three plate appearances.

  • Twins' Mark Contreras: Earns first call-up

    Contreras' contract was selected by the Twins on Saturday.

    Contreras, a 27-year-old outfielder, has yet to make his major-league debut. He's hit .239/.350/.489 in 26 games for Triple-A St. Paul this season, adding five homers and five steals. He'll likely fill a bench role for now.
