The Twins are expected to activate first baseman Justin Morneau from the 15-day disabled list today in time for him to play tonight at Detroit.  Morneau has been on the disabled list for the past 15 days with a sore left wrist.  He’s been taking batting practice the last couple of days and is reporting no problems.  Morneau in 20 games was batting .230 with 4 homeruns and 9 RBIs this season.

Morneau is expected to play first base primarily instead of DH.  Morneau played just 4 games at first base so far this season.  To make room for Morneau on the activate roster Chris Parmelee was optioned to triple-A Rochester.  Parmelee was hitting just .179 with no homeruns and 3 RBIs for the Twins this season.
