The move was simply a procedural one, as the Mets needed to clear room on their 40-man roster after adding Matt Reynolds to the playoff roster to replace the injured Ruben Tejada.

Stauffer was activated from the 15-day DL on Thursday, MLB.com's Rhett Bollinger reports.

Stauffer's velocity was down a couple ticks in his last rehab appearance, so he may not be very effective out of the bullpen for the Twins. He gave up three runs on six hits over five innings (four appearances) with Triple-A Rochester. Still, they deemed that he was ready to return to his role in the middle innings and he should be available for Friday's game.

Stauffer (strained intercostal) has thrown three scoreless innings in two appearances for Triple-A Rochester. However, he "still has time to go" before being activated from the DL, GM Terry Ryan told the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

The Twins may keep Stauffer in the minors for several weeks during his rehab stint since the major league bullpen is on a roll and since Stauffer struggled before the injury.
