Twins place C Mitch Garver on paternity list

Twins catcher Mitch Garver will miss a few games. He’s been placed on the paternity list, as his wife Sarah is due to give birth before the week is over. To replace Garver on the 26-man roster, catcher Ben Rortvedt has been recalled from St. Paul.

Garver, 30, was reinstated from the injured list on Monday and has gone 2-for-6 with two home runs in two games since. He’s batting .230 (28-for-122) with eight doubles, 10 home runs, 19 RBI, 19 runs scored and an .884 OPS in 43 games overall this season.

The Twins open a four game homestand Thursday vs. the Los Angeles Angels.
