Brian Dinkelman went 3-for-4 with a homer, four RBI and a walk in the Twins' 11-5 rout of the Pirates on Thursday.
Dinkelman was removed from the Twins' 40-man roster at the end of last season, only to be re-signed to a minor league contract. Versatility is his biggest asset, and the Twins are giving him time in the outfield while they're still uncertain about how they'll handle right field. Realistically, he's a 25th man at best. Ron Gardenhire, though, has a history of giving 25th men too much playing time.
