The Twins optioned shortstop Brian Dozier to triple-A Rochester and called up shortstop Pedro Florimon.  Dozier is hitting .234 this season with 6 homeruns and 33 RBIs for the Twins.  Florimon began the season at double-A and was hitting .251 with 3 homeruns and 27 RBIs at triple Rochester.

Florimon is considered the 18th best prospect in the Twins organization.  Brian Dozier will likely be recalled when rosters expand in September.
