The Minnesota Twins have placed catcher Mitch Garver on the Injured List and reinstated infielder Miguel Sano.

The team announced Wednesday that Garver was placed on the 10-day Injured List with a high left ankle sprain. He suffered the injury in the eighth inning of Tuesday night's game against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. In 25 games this season, Garver has hit .329 with four doubles, nine home runs, 19 RBI and a 1.164 OPS.

Taking Garver's spot on the 25-man roster is infielder Miguel Sano. Sano, who has missed the first 41 games of the season with a right heel laceration, was on the 10-day Injured List and had been on a rehab assignment in the minor leagues.

During his 10-game rehab assignment across Single-A, Double-A and Triple-A, Sano hit .316 with four doubles, two home runs, nine RBI and three walks.

The Twins play the rubber-match of the three-game series against the Angels on Wednesday afternoon before heading to Seattle.

The team is currently 26-15, and leads the American League Central Division by four games.
